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..

Mothers Day was pretty special for Kath who landed her biggest fish ever - two cracking wahoo! 👏💃 #yehthegirls
We also managed spanish mackerel, some big spotties, tasty reef fish and a few dollies over the past few days 🎣
Unfortunately the shark 🦈 plague continues to destroy our gear and many good fish 😔
#getonboard winter means calmer weather, big snapper on plastics and kingfish 🤙

Daly River
Apologies to anyone who has tried to contact us recently - ive been back up in the NT fishing the #barraclassic 🤠
(Bad reception)
We ended up in 5th place out of 59 teams which we're pretty happy with 🤙
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 💪 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 😪 devastating.. but that's a story for another time 😶 #weknowthetruth
The Daly River is a place of extremes 😵‍💫💯 we hit rock bars and logs, lost a wheel, lost many fish 🐟🐟🐟, had a breakdown, lost me beloved Rambo Lures cap, flat tyre, burnt to a crisp in crazy heat 🔥, carried away by mosquitoes 🦟 and blasted by storms ⛈️ #makinmemories 🎣🎣🎣
Congrats to Tackle World and Edge Rods for 1st and 2nd place - made us all look silly with their exceptional usage of technology 🤯 wowsers!!
Thankyou to @irukandji_tackle for slinging us some awesome soft plastics! 👌
Lastly, Cheers 🍻 to my legendary crew @alexrubai_ink @double_n_mate for all the hard work, effort and many many laughs 👊 #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 💥
Some nice snapper around too, with loads of tailor on the light gear 🤙 tripple hookups the norm.. 👌
