Welcome to Smithys Fishing Charters - The Longest Running Fishing Charter on the Sunshine Coast!


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

Booked out solid until snapper closure (July 15).

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”.  Operating for over 14 years, he is now the longest continuously working charter boat businesses out of Mooloolaba.


Centrally 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.

We use and recommend Gary Howard Custom Rods and Okuma rods and reels.
