Brad Smith's Fishing Charters - Gold Coast

4 out of 5 overall rating by Michael for 3 Oct 2016
Review: We had a great day out .. our guide did everything to search out the fish - he worked hard on a day when a storm was rolling in. My nephew (and his father for that matter) came away raving about their first fishing trip. My nephew was able to reel in a selection of species, and they both want to return very soon. Thanks for your hard work and your willingness to share your knowledge and techniques

Gone Fishing - Gold Coast

5 out of 5 overall rating by Liam for 31 May 2015
Review: We went on the Sunday half day 5 hr morning charter on Sunday 31/5/2015 Dept 6am. Was an unforgettable experience to say the least! Caught plenty of fish, had a blast, The skipper definitely knew his spots, we were drifting up on the fish like pros!(had a sore arm by the end of it). I have been on many charters and I would highly recommend [this to] anyone (who actually wants to catch fish)! First drop I was in on a beauty of a snapper! Loads of species targeted. The crew were really friendly and warmed up the cold morning. Plenty of laughs and banter going on :) Great size boat! was really solid in the water and plenty of power to get us all out nice and deep (60m) in no time. Nice and roomy too. The crew answered all my questions in relation to the Gold Coast Fishing, so we all knew we were in good hands! Exceptional start to a Sunday, Looking forward to the next one!!

True Blue Fishing Charters

3 out of 5 overall rating by SwingKing Gold Coast for 13 May 2015
Review: Perfect conditions and the Skipper put us straight onto the fish. Lots of Trag Jew and also some big Jumbo Mack Tuna which was great fun until the Sharks turned up! Service, instruction, facilities and equipment were all good and everybody went home with a feed of fish. Some confusion at the pick-up point which resulted in some lost precious early morning fishing time. Vessel arrived at wharf on time but signage on boat read 'Gold Coast Fishing Charters' not True Blue. Vessel departed but had to turn around and go back to pick up one passenger who didn't get on because he thought it was the wrong charter boat. Correct signage would have helped avoid this. Lines didn't get in until 7am and Skipper declared lines up at 10.05am when fish were still biting which I thought was a little early considering we lost some time at the beginning? Vessel arrived back at wharf 10.40am. This charter was advertised '6-11am' [half day trip]. An enjoyable day overall and had to be satisfied as everyone took home some fish, just a little disappointing lines up was called a little early.
