Rob will meet and greet you at the wharf, take you through the programe and head out to the best fishing grounds we have in the bay. Yellowtail Kingfish, Snapper and Marlin are the main species to be caught so the choice is yours, be sure that Capt Rob will heading to the favoured grounds and get ready as baits go over the side.
