Simply the best fishing charter on the Sunny Coast. Smithy seems to be on first name terms with all the fish out there, and certainly knows where they live! A cracking day out. Steve S

We set out with the goal to get dad his first marlin and Smithy did not disappoint! He also got us into both yellowfin and longtail tuna. A great day out with a top bloke.

Thanks guys. Replicating the amount of action we had the day before would have been been better but there were 5 times the amount of boats there. Just put the video up on social media.

Booked a 3/4 day trip with Smithy in late August. Booking was easy and Smithy was always quick to answer any questions. We motored for over an hour where he knew fish were holding, so he wasn't afraid to burn some diesel to get us onto spot X. My son Rob and I where joined by Ross and George who were great company. Smithy limits numbers on the boat so there was plenty of room for everyone and no tangled lines during the day. We got onto some snapper straight away and Smithy worked hard to reposition the boat back over the fish for numerous drifts. All the rods tackle and bait were provided and we were catching good fish with both bait and soft plastics. We were also given a choice bait fishing between an overhead reel or an egg beater. All in all a great day and I will definitely be booking another trip next time we are up in the Sunshine Coast. Sunscreen, hats, snacks and water are mandatory as well as something to transport your fish in even if you leave an esky in the car.

Thanks Stu. Was a good morning for sure on a good moon phase. Bit of a struggle this week on the back of the new moon doing shorter trips.

Managed to get a day out on the water with Smithy back in May - Was a fantastic day out and it didn't take long for us to get amongst the fish - Plenty of options on offer from bagging a feed and also chasing some AJ's - Skipper knows the local area well and all in all a great day.
