Your day starts at the crack of dawn as you rise and eat a quick breakfast before being transported down to the tiny, man-made harbour to board your 20 metre (65 foot) charter boat. Sit back with a steaming mug of coffee as Gavin expertly pilots this spacious vessel to the fishing grounds, which begin immediately outside the harbour entrance. Your list of target species will vary with the season, prevailing weather patterns and advice from Gavin, but it’s likely to include tuna, pink snapper, Bight redfish, queen snapper, leatherjackets, Samson fish, yellowtail kingfish and the number one culinary prize in this part of the world: King George whiting (best from March to April). Whatever you choose to chase, you’ll be amazed at just how rich these southern seas are.
After a long day on the water hooking, fighting and landing a seemingly endless procession of fish, you’re sure to be ready for a rest but the fish cleaning comes first. Gavin will pitch in right beside you in his spotlessly clean and insect-proof fish cleaning area, showing you how best to fillet and skin your catch. You’ll return to shore with all the ingredients for a truly memorable seafood banquet.
