No tangling up with 12 strangers! Have the boat to yourselves!

Fish the offshore waters of the Sunshine Coast aboard the charter boat “Capricorn” or the inshore waters on “Kuhlia” with your local owner operator skipper Robert Smith, known locally as “Smithy”. Established for nine years, he is now one of the longest working charter boat businesses out of Mooloolaba.

Fishing Charters Creek to CoastCentrally located at Minyama on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland we can tailor a trip to suit everyone including individuals, groups, corporate or bucks parties, end of year or Christmas work trips and if you are looking for the perfect fisherperson’s gift, you can purchase a gift voucher from us.

Between the two boats we specialise in offshore deep sea, reef, game, sport, jigging, soft plastics, estuary, fly, freshwater and crabbing trips. All fishing equipment, tackle and bait supplied.  With changes to the laws in Queensland we can now offer exclusive whale watching, dolphin and birdwatching trips for up to 7 people in a group.

We are fully licensed to fish the “Barwon Banks”, “The Hards” & “The Shelf” and all points in between including many wrecks.

Smithys Fishing Charters are also members of the QSIA (Queensland Seafood Industry Association’s) PCOQ (Professional Charter Operators of Queensland) division so you know you are in safe hands.

We use and recommend Gary Howard Custom Rods and Fin Nor reels.
