We Are The Local’s Choice

Fish The Deep Charters has been a family owned and operated business on the Gold Coast since 1995.

With Fish The Deep Charters, we care about you, our valuable customer. In an effort to make your trip the best it can be, we offer genuine, personalized service and a friendly, helpful and experienced crew catering to both seasoned anglers and novices with the highest quality services and staff on the Gold Coast.

Due to a lack of professionally run, personalised fishing experiences offered in the Southeast Qld of Australia, we have found it essential to provide locals and regular visitors to the Gold Coast a genuine, enjoyable fishing trip that caters to a variety of customer’s needs and expectations. Therefore we’ll give 100% and take pride in making your day out a memorable and adventurous one.

As Gold Coasters we are blessed with an array of fishing and boating delights. Our beautiful beaches attract millions of visitors from the local area, interstate and overseas every year. We also have a fantastic variety of waterways and estuary destinations which are very alluring to all who visit. What we love the most though, is our offshore reef and game fishing destinations. As regular fishers, we are honoured to be able to target such a large variety of species through our calendar year. During winter our reef fishing is pumping with snapper, pearl perch, kingfish, amberjack, samson fish, cobia, cod, teraglin jew fish, tailor and tuna. As summer approaches our pelagic and game fish follow the EAC (East Australian Current) to our shores and provide us with dolphin fish (Mahi Mahi), spanish, school, spotted and striped mackerel, bonito, wahoo, parrot fish, tusk fish, black, striped and blue marlin, tuna, and a few reef fish too.

To ensure catches of all these species, we use a range of fishing techniques including trolling, bottom bashing, jigging, lure fishing and float lining. We supply new Penn Senator overhead reels and Penn 15kg Mariner Plus series rods. These combos are simple to use and of high quality. Stocking a full range of tackle enables you to fish with a variety of methods. Our qualified, experienced and friendly skipper and deckhand assist you throughout the day with your fishing and help with any questions you may have. If you a new to fishing and never used a fishing rod or reel before, don’t fret, we teach all our customers how to use the fishing equipment and show you our different fishing techniques.

All our fishing destinations are offshore, ranging from 10 to 35 kms from the seaway. The Gold Coast reef systems run parallel to the coastline and we visit the closest reefs on the half day trips and the further offshore reefs on the full day trips. During summer, when we are trolling for pelagics, we use the time it takes to travel to the fishing locations as an opportunity to target species like dolphin fish and marlin.

Gift vouchers are available for all our fishing trips.
