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

This trip we had caught enough yummy reefies by 10am, so left them biting to chase a marlin. Perks of having a boat that can do over 40knots, with 5 blokes onboard πŸ€™@contenderboatsofficial

πŸ“Έ Couple of random pics from the last few weeks - haven't bothered too much as we don't need to generate work.😊 Mainly chasing yummy reef fish (tuskfish, pinkies, pearlies) as the pelagics have been extremely patchy so far πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
⚠️ #getonboard the first two weeks of April are prime mackerel months and wide open! ⚠️

Here is the start of our black marlin run, taken before Christmas last year with family and friends πŸ€™ hope you enjoy the edit 😁πŸŽ₯
You might notice we typically use 24kg on these fish as I like to get them in quick, a tag in and released asap! (The best part is the jumps)
🎣⚠️ #getonboard still a couple of random spots in January available ⚠️🎣
