Rated 2 out of 5 by nothappyboys overall, very dissappointing
This fishing charter, I think, is suitable for first timers or inexperienced fishermen. We thought we were going to catch - as advertised for this charter - sharks and/or snapper but only caught small flathead. These could have been caught off any pier. We were told to be at the pier at 6.30am and at 6.10am one of the other guys got a phone call from the skipper wanting to know where the h#*l we were. We were arriving at the pier. The day we went out was 36d celsius and we were not offered even a drink of water for the entire day. I am aware that we were to supply our own food and drinks but on a day of this heat anyone could have suffered from heat stress. Also, on boarding the boat, the skipper started to cook bacon and eggs and we thought - what a nice touch/treat only to eat in front of everyone - quite rude. Tea and coffee were to be supplied but none was offered, I asked for coffee and it was made for me but I was the only one who got one. Surely a packet of biscuits from the supermarket wouldn't be too much to ask for at $140 per person. Also, we knew that the salmon were spawning at the time so were not interested in the lures and an experienced charter company should know that and not keep trying to target that species.

Fantastic trip the crew in Tom and Toby where great value they had excellent knowledge of the water plus some great fishing tips and to top it off a great sense of humour. The fishing was just sensational started the trip off catching some king fish which for pound for pound some of the best fighting fish going around. Then we got on to some salmon and then followed it up with some flathead. Really great day would recommend it to anyone

Rated 2 out of 5 by snapper Could have been better
Told we would go after snapper, thats what I was going on the trip for.
I was watching the fish finder and we went over a big school of fish and the skipper keeped going wasn't happy.
I new the snapper where in the bay but the skipper headed out to bass straight. I don't think they tried hard enough, but that was my thoughts, I won't be going or recommending this crowd.
I even had a mate come along at $140.00
Feel it was a bit of a waste of a day, they where just after our money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by wellsy I would not recommend this to anyone
We spent 45 minutes to an hour getting out and back from the fishing location out in Bass Straight, so we ended up with about 3 hours fishing. There were really no fish caught that were worth bringing back other than one person caught a small gummy shark, another 2 small flathead and one squid. When i asked about Snapper I was told they werent bitting only to get out on a different charter 5 days later and caught the bag limit very quickly and was told that the same day i was on RIP Charters they caught bag limits on all 3 charters for the day.
Seriously do not waste your money.
