11 Hours

This 11 hour charter is the most popular of our day charters. This package is suited to both novice and experienced anglers providing those aboard with the chance to hook a trophy sized Snapper. The day is kicked off with a comfortable trip South West across St Vincent Gulf. On arrival at Tapley’s Shoal clients will be grouped on the rear deck for a short brief by “Reel Therapy” deckhand Dave. Once Dave is satisfied everyone is ready to fish, away we go. We will fish the Shoals for the entire day only having to move short distances to change spots returning to Glenelg 11 hours after departure time. On most occasions big Snapper will be our target species along with extra-large King George Whiting. Due to the fact this is a remote location and is out of reach to most trailer boat owners it isn’t as susceptible to fishing pressure as some of the grounds around Adelaide. During the warmer months it is not uncommon to encounter Snapper weighing up to 13 kilograms and measuring over a meter. This area is also well known for its 1 kilogram King George Whiting. Other species we encounter are School Shark, Silver Trevally, Flathead, Snook and reef fish. White Sharks may also be sighted during the peak of Snapper season.

This charter is 11 hours as it does contain some travel time to and from the grounds.

Individual and group bookings welcome.

Catering is available on request.
