Wildside Sportfishing – South West Rocks Fishing Charters

Wildside Sportfishing's Contender 25 Tournament is the perfect all round fishing vessel

Welcome to Wildside Sportfishing!

Fishing South West Rocks with Wildside Sportfishing YouTube play

Guided estuary, reef, sport and game fishing charters out of South West Rocks in northern NSW.

We are fully licensed, insured and have over 18 years experience operating fishing tours.

‘Wildside’

Our vessel, a Contender 25 Tournament named Wildside, is surveyed for 30 nautical miles (55 kms) offshore. It is fast, comfortable and a true sport fishing weapon.

Wildside is fully set up for all forms of angling, including game fishing South West Rocks. Outriggers, large live bait tank, flying gaffs, tail ropes, Black Magic Equalizer harness, high / low chirp sonar, plus Makaira 24kg and 37kg stand up tackle are some of the equipment we have on board.

Species?

We target everything from mulloway, jacks and flathead in the Macleay River – to tuna, snapper, mackerel and marlin offshore. No fish is safe!

Vertical jigging, soft plastic finesse, surface and sub surface stick baits, high speed spinning and trolling for billfish are some of the techniques regularly used. On board is a massive live well which is generally filled with live bait at the start of a tour – covering all bases.

Why choose us?

We are a different style of fishing charter with a maximum number of 4x passengers. This means I can continue to provide the same service and one on one tuition as I’ve always done.

Quality fishing tackle and equipment is provided, which is regularly serviced and maintained.

Close attention is paid to the organization of every booking to ensure you, and your crew, enjoy the experience.

Our future..

Anglers invest time, money and effort into chasing fish, and it is our right to take home a feed. There is something so special about harvesting, cooking and eating your own catch – fresh and untainted. (Rather than buying it shrink wrapped off the shelf).

But the saying “limit your kill, don’t kill your limit” is now more important than ever. I want my kids, and their kids, to enjoy the thrill of a sport introduced to me by my father.


Over 30 years as an obsessed fisherman, I’ve noticed one trend more important than anything else – our waterways are under ever increasing pressure. It is our duty to shoulder stewardship of these incredible environments we love so much. To respect and promote the health and longevity of a shared resource, so that fishing may remain a healthy viable past time, long into the future.

Therefore we keep some, and we release some .. =)

Get on board for a guided South West Rocks fishing charter today!

Cheers

Jas

Mothers Day was pretty special for Kath who landed her biggest fish ever - two cracking wahoo! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ƒ #yehthegirls
We also managed spanish mackerel, some big spotties, tasty reef fish and a few dollies over the past few days ๐ŸŽฃ
Unfortunately the shark ๐Ÿฆˆ plague continues to destroy our gear and many good fish ๐Ÿ˜”
#getonboard winter means calmer weather, big snapper on plastics and kingfish ๐Ÿค™

Apologies to anyone who has tried to contact us recently - ive been back up in the NT fishing the #barraclassic ๐Ÿค 
(Bad reception)
We ended up in 5th place out of 59 teams which we're pretty happy with ๐Ÿค™
Fishing was very tough, we worked hard and came back from way up the field with some reasonable fish - Glenn catching the unofficial biggest for the competition 92cm (on the last day) on a 3 inch plastic in 80cm of water on light spin ๐Ÿ’ช a super heavy barra but lacking in length, could've easily been meter plus... and unfortunately due to a 'bad photo' on our dodgy digital camera, it wasn't excepted at its measured length ๐Ÿ˜ช devastating.. but that's a story for another time ๐Ÿ˜ถ #weknowthetruth
The Daly River is a place of extremes ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ’ฏ we hit rock bars and logs, lost a wheel, lost many fish ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ, had a breakdown, lost me beloved Rambo Lures cap, flat tyre, burnt to a crisp in crazy heat ๐Ÿ”ฅ, carried away by mosquitoes ๐ŸฆŸ and blasted by storms โ›ˆ๏ธ #makinmemories ๐ŸŽฃ๐ŸŽฃ๐ŸŽฃ
Congrats to Tackle World and Edge Rods for 1st and 2nd place - made us all look silly with their exceptional usage of technology ๐Ÿคฏ wowsers!!
Thankyou to @irukandji_tackle for slinging us some awesome soft plastics! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Lastly, Cheers ๐Ÿป to my legendary crew @alexrubai_ink @double_n_mate for all the hard work, effort and many many laughs ๐Ÿ‘Š #teamwildside

Got out a couple of days this week finally! Had a blast casting Rambo Lures 'pelagic cigars' at big schools of busting longtail tuna - very cool watching them explode on the skipping garfish imitations and scream off line to the horizon ๐Ÿ’ฅ
Some nice snapper around too, with loads of tailor on the light gear ๐Ÿค™ tripple hookups the norm.. ๐Ÿ‘Œ
