Author picture

Pretty excited to report that we now have a new long-range sportfishing charter option out of Hervey bay aboard Freedom III with our 1st trip a great success !

With a window of stable weather we assembled a group of keen anglers who had previoulsy fished with local fishing guides Andrew Chorley and Tri Ton who also assisted on this 1st trip.

We did a fair bit of travelling while exploring the top of the Break Sea Spit and always had a few lures out the back .Matt Armistead with one of a number of beautiful and tasty yellowfin we landed !

We fished a number of ruble patches which resulted in all manner of species and a few quality cobia 

There where also a number of beautiful diamond trevally landed like this one Trevor is holding

Tri with a thumping Golden taken on a jig !

There was quite a bit deep jigging out on the shelf – 400 gram knife jigs resulted in some serious pulling !!!

Samson fish provided some great sport and will be better targeted now that Freedom III has just been fitted out with all new SimRad sonar equipment since this trip !

A surprise capture in 100 metres of water on a 400 gram knife jig for Wes !

After we had stretched every one out in the deep stuff we moved in shore onto some shoals and focused on teh reefies – Chozza with a nice mauri cod

Matt with a nice & tasy sweety 

Lucanus jigs where a favourite on the reefies – check out the colours in this beautiful red throat !!

It was a great trip and we didn’t even scratch the surface as far as the potential these remote waters above Fraser Island offers – So if you have dreamt of fishing this amazing area Contact either – Tri Ton @ Or Call 0427 230 261 OR Andrew “Chozza” @ Or Call “Chozza” on 0407 627 852.
