Big black kingfish
Massive cobia are always welcome on board!

South West Rocks is famous for it’s sport fishing throughout the year, and I like to make it as exciting and adventurous as possible. Our vessel can do over 40knots if required, getting you out to the fish FAST!

Twice the speed of other boats means twice the fishing time!! =)

The ocean teams with life..

Due to it’s deep coastal waters and close proximity to the shelf (roughly 12 nautical miles) it allows tropical and temperate currents to push extremely close to shore, bringing all kinds of marine life.

This area of northern New South Wales therefore enjoys a mixture of warm and cold water species that overlap each season.

At times the East Australian Current pushes warm water in so close to shore that oceanic species like dolphin fish, marlin and wahoo can be seen from the rocks.

Methods

We specialize in the use of lures such as soft plastics, metal jigs, stick baits and poppers – the most exciting way to catch a fish!

Plus live slimey mackerel and yellowtail are regularly used, which we catch at the beginning of your tour. We also prepare cut / strip baits – the best technique can change on a daily, or even hourly basis.

Big snapper are great fun on light tackle and soft plastics

So many species to target!

Cobia, kingfish, mulloway, snapper, tailor, bonito, longtail tuna, mackerel tuna, yellowfin tuna, spanish mackerel, spotted mackerel, pearl perch, teraglin, tuskfish and sampson fish are all taken at various times thoughout the year.

Macleay River Estuary

If desired by the crew, or if the weather becomes too rough outside we can fish return to the Macleay River estuary.

The Macleay can be exceptional at times for both numbers and quality.

Species like flathead, trevally, bream, whiting, mulloway and mangrove jacks are often in the river whilst cobia, salmon, tailor and kingfish come and go.

Lures such as soft plastics and vibes are my go to..

Been quite a few makos around lately - was nice to catch one ourselves and a perfect eating size too 👍 #yumm
We also managed to get one back on the brown shark (whalers and bulls) plague which has been ravaging our gear and fish over the past few years - well done @bailey_rogan 🦈
