7 Reasons Why A Fishing Trip In Sydney Is Worth It

Game Fishing

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or you’ve never even considered the sport, fishing is a sensational experience. It’s so good; it should come with an addiction warning! And heading out on Sydney Harbour fishing charters is a Rolls Royce opportunity (without the price tag). 

Indeed, if you think catching some of those incredible, iconic Aussie big fish is what makes fishing charters in Sydney magical, you’d be right. But there are so many other reasons to go fishing on a charter. So, starting with the most obvious, we share them here. 

By the way, if you get to the end of this list and you’ve developed a severe case of #FOMO, don’t worry! The team here at Wahoo Fishing Charters is always happy to get you on one of our tours, so give us a call.

Guided fishing tours know the best spots

The best fishing spots in Sydney are not found on the internet. They’re closely-guarded secrets kept by locals in the know. We’ve been fishing these waters for decades, and over that time, we’ve built up a little black book of our favourite hidden gems. Depending on the season, weather and time of day, we make a beeline to the very best places. 

On the flip side, we also know where not to fish. Submerged obstacles and questionable water quality – we avoid any no-go zones.

Explore new waters with Sydney fishing tours

The average Sydneysider doesn’t know every street in Sydney, right? But a taxi driver might just about… Well, it’s no different on the water. Even if you’re a local, chances are you won’t know all the areas around Sydney. However, this is our bread and butter. 

As professional fishing game guides, we are fortunate enough to call Sydney Harbour – and the surrounding waters – our office. And we know it like the back of our hand. We share this knowledge with our clients and make sure you experience something new and exciting on every trip.

Access to the best fishing equipment

Are fishing charters worth it? Definitely – they save you from buying a boat! When you come on one of our charters, you head out to sea on a first-rate boat. 

Our chartering boats are our pride and joy. From our ‘On Point’, perfect for one to five passengers, to the jewel in the crown, our 23-person ‘Avalon’, these fishing charter boats are equipped with the latest technology and creature comforts to ensure you have a perfect day out on the water. 

But that’s not all. The best Sydney fishing charter experience also includes top-of-the-range fishing gear. From high-quality Shimano fishing rods to A-grade fresh bait, we provide the best of everything to ensure the right fish bite.

A professional fishing tour means you do nothing but relax  

Don’t worry about meals, drinks, parking spots, or even sunscreen. We take care of all the details, so you do nothing but concentrate on having a brilliant time. Step on our boat and leave life admin onshore.

Our fishing tours take care of the licenses, so you don’t have to  

Without a recreational fishing license, it’s illegal to simply cast a line into the Sydney Harbour. Why go to the hassle and cost of organising one when it’s on tap through Wahoo? Leave the red tape to us and, as we said above, simply enjoy.

A Wahoo fishing tour in Sydney is sustainable

Once you get addicted to fishing (and you will), this becomes an important point. As responsible fisherpeople and lovers of this great sport, we want to see it last. We want to pass on our passion to future generations. However, that can only happen when our sea is full of fish.

We know what fish you can and cannot bait. We happily share our knowledge about this – and sustainable fishing more broadly – with clients so that we all continue to enjoy this fantastic recreation.

A fishing experience in Sydney is good exercise

Those fish aren’t going to jump on the boat and into your lap! Deep sea and reef fishing can be an excellent way to enjoy quality exercise without any of that pre-gym dread. You’ll be so busy fighting to keep these big catches on the line that you won’t even realise you’ve had a mega workout until the fish is in the Eskie and you’re cracking open a cold one.

Contact Wahoo about a fishing trip in Sydney

So, is a reef or deep sea fishing tour worth it? We have plenty of delighted clients who think so. Indeed, with prices starting at just $120 per person, we think this is incredible value for money when considering what you get in return. 

So call our happy customer service team today – we promise to make a day out on the water worth your while.

We went out on a charter today and whilst the weather was against us, Sev and Josh did everything they could to get us on to the fish. I highly recommend George and his team for your next fishing charter. We will be back.
