Sydney Guided Fishing Charters

Want to go fishing in Sydney?

Fishabout guides Craig McGill and Stuart Reid have spent many years fishing Sydney and it’s surrounding waterways, and have built up an intimate knowledge of species, locations and seasons. This unsurpassed ‘Local Knowledge’ of Sydney’s hot spots, what species are biting and where, is put to your advantage.


During daylight savings we offer 2 sessions per day, with a morning sesion starting at sunrise and ending at 1pm, and an afternoon session starting at 1.30pm and ending around sunset. Outside of daylight savings, we run two sessions each day, with the morning session being standard length of around 7 hours, and a shorter afternoon charter at reduced prices.


In winter we run one session each day, with the option of sessions starting later to avoid the morning chill.


Our fishing is done both inside the harbour and close offshore, where we target everything from big Kings and Jewfish to Snap+ per, Flathead, Dolphin Fish, Salmon, Trevally, Blackfish and much more.

Sydney Inshore Reefs and Wrecks

Over the last few years Stuart had been spending most of his time fishing outside the Harbour. The majority of this fishing
effort has concentrated on the many offshore reefs and wrecks around Sydney. The reef systems are all within 20 minutes boat ride from the heads and are close enough to shore so that seasickness is usually not a big issue. Catches of over 30 kingfish are common place on both bait and lures. During the summer there are Dolphin Fish on the FADS averaging around 80cms. In winter the Snapper turn up.


These sessions are spent aboard Fishabout’s 5.5 and 8 metre boats and include: • All Tackle • Guidance & tuition • Large lure selection • Light refreshments • All bait
Whether a total novice or an experienced angler, trips are tailored to meet your objective, and we look forward to having you out on the Harbour!
