We find them- you catch them! Fish Montague Island and surrounding reefs or out to the shelf.
This is one of the best fishing destinations in South Eastern Australia and provides good catches of Snapper, Morwong, Wrasse, Leatherjacket, Trevally, Flathead, Bonito and Kingfish all year around.
The size of catches drops off a bit from June to November but winters here are so mild it is a great place to get out on the water, dangle a line and realize that hibernation is not necessary. The beauty of fishing at Narooma is that it is so close to Montague Island , about a 20 minute run in our boat, and then you are half way to the shelf. More fishing time – less travel time!
We have a large live bait tank and provide quality and well maintained fishing equipment including Penn International reels on custom short stroker rods for the game fishing. Penn 320’s on Hawk Strikers for the reef fishing. All tackle is supplied (on a replace if lost basis) Our state of the art fish finder maximises your chances of a productive trip!

Martin and Kathie Thackray took over Island Charters Narooma in March 1999 and feel it was the best decision ever made. During the previous 12 years Martin had been continuously involved in the Sea Rescue as well as being a keen diver, fisherman and whale spotter.
Martin will be your skipper and Kathie will assist you with bookings. We both love meeting people, especially those enjoying themselves.
It might be your first time at game fishing or you might be a seasoned veteran.
Perhaps you are planning your first trip out to sea or you might travel the world seeking out the best dive sites.
Whatever your boating experience, our goal is to see you have fun!
