the fishing charter package deal professionals

Just back from Melville and the fishing was great.
The barra weren't huge but definitely plentiful.
The whole operation was professionally run and the guides and food were excellent. Your itinerary was spot on and everything ran like clockwork and we must thank you for your efficiency.

Bankstown Deep Sea Fishing Club March 2013

Fourteen of the club members headed up by the president Mr. Larry Ilic, over two three day weekends, fished the waters of Dundee Beach and the mighty Finniss River. Their pictures are worth a thousand words!

The first group of ten stayed right on the fishing grounds on the Barrabotel (mother ship) cooking some of their catches for meals, whilst the other group of four opted for terra firma and the fully included, meal and accommodation package at The Lodge of Dundee.
