Our boat is a 6.1 metre ‘Marlin Broadbill’ fully ‘NSW Waterways’ surveyed for you comfort and safety in all weather conditions.
Trolling is probably the easiest and most productive way to catch a trout or salmon.
A relaxing way to fish, sit back, relax and wait for the fish to bite while you cruise around beautiful Lake Jindabyne. The boat is fully equipped with the latest fishfinder, you may even see the old township of Jindabyne on our High Definition sonar equipment including ‘sidescan’.
Try advanced trolling methods like ‘Leadlining’, ‘Downrigging’ and ‘Side planers’.
NO EXPERIENCE and NO FISHING LICENCE NEEDED !
All tackle supplied just turn up, sit back and relax!

BOOKING GROUP SIZE
All of our tours are usually private, that is - you book yourself and bring your own party.
We do not have daily organised charters where you book as an individual and you share the booking with others. We find that personalised tours are best.
If there is only you and you want to share the cost with someone else then we will try and find someone for you to share with but it would be your responsibility to book a time and pay for the trip first.
Advantages of going alone are that your captain will also fish an extra two rods for you, so instead of fishing with just two rods you get to grab the captains rods as well (if your quick enough!)
The boat is surveyed for 8 people however we recommend that 4 people fish (that is one rod each) and group size maximum is 6. There is no guarantee we can get 6 rods into the water, you must take turns.
There is an age limit for Children. We find that under 8 is too young to have on the boat for extended periods, due to safety reasons. 2 hour tours can be arranged for children between the ages of 5 and 8 but only if the child remains seated at all times. Sorry no babies due to maritime PFD regulations.
Most bookings during summer are either early or late in the day however we can arrange times to suit every party.
In summer tours may start at first light depending on daylight savings hours.
In winter our tours normally start at 9am and we are off the water by 4pm
BEST TIME TO FISH
We recommend that the early morning fishing and the weather is generally best at first light, however the fish may come on the bite at any time during the day so it is always a gamble.
If you’re a late starter then we recommend a luncheon or evening booking.
Brown trout, rainbow trout, Atlantic salmon and maybe if your lucky a brook trout!
We are dealing with wild animals and we can never predict how they will behave on the day.
Our catch rate on average throughout the year is one fish per hour, but you can be lucky and catch more and you can be unlucky and catch nothing!
