Head offshore to the Gold Coast's best fishing spots on board ‘SWEET LIPS’ our fast, new Stebercraft vessel. We target snapper, kingfish, pearl perch, teraglin, tusk fish, marlin, cobia, dolphin fish and tuna. Thrill to the scream of the reel as a Wahoo strikes in the white water!
Arriving at our vessel in the early hours of the morning, you will be met by your skipper and introduced to the features of the fishing vessel. The vessel is a new Stebercraft, purpose built to Maritime Safety Queensland's survey standards and powered by a Yanmar turbo diesel engine. The boat is also equipped with the best G.P.S. and Fishfinding technology.
Following a short safety brief, the current fishing conditions, travel times and destination are also discussed.
A full day charter allows us time to travel to the deeper reefs where the larger predators lurk. Depending on season, lures are also trolled, the reel smoking speed of a Wahoo run is unbelievable. It’s quite common to see dolphins swimming alongside the boat and during the whale season, groups of Humpback Whales are often seen breaching.
Upon arrival at the first fishing location, a ‘fishing lesson’ is given on how best to use the rods and reels, baiting and most importantly how to see and feel the bites. Even the most inexperienced angler can catch fish armed with the right knowledge. If you have trouble the first time, your skipper will happily guide you through the process till you master the skill.
Then it's down to the action! It can get very busy when there’s a school of fish under the boat. As you are fishing, your skipper may also put out a float bait or a live bait to lure the bigger predators. Be ready! He may pass you the rod with the BIG one on the line. We also move from reef to reef to maximise our time at sea and maximise our catch.
Food and refreshments: A light snack (Cheese dip, crackers and sliced Kabana) is included and there is always drinking water and soft drinks available. You are welcome to B.Y.O. beverages or fo
Your fish are also cleaned and bagged for you to take home and your skipper can advise you how best to cook your fish.

People of all ages go Deep Sea Fishing, there are very few limitations. Please advise the skipper if you have a medical condition prior to departure.
The price quoted is for one person. Average numbers on a full day deep sea fishing trip range from 5-8 people, so the boat is never overcrowded. You will also get ‘one on one’ help from your skipper to make sure you come home with fish.
