Whether you are after deep sea or game fishing or perhaps looking to do some jigging along the way, then there are a number of fishing charters that you can arrange a seat on for a day out on the water. All year round these fishing charters will depart for the open waters where you are always guaranteed to reel in some great catches of the day.
Fishing in Bunbury is something that the locals are proud of and it is one of the main attractions that draws travellers here every year. The city of Bunbury is only 2 hours south of Perth and is almost completely surrounded by water, from the Indian Ocean to the Murray River and the famous canals that snake their way through the countryside; there are ocean outings and estuary fishing for you to choose from.
All fishing charters that depart from Bunbury offer purpose built boats that provide everything that you will need for an enjoyable day out on the water. You will have your bait, tackle, fishing rods and even morning tea, afternoon tea and lunch provided and with the helpful and knowledgeable crew onboard you will be taken to some excellent fishing grounds and secrete locations. Many of the boats boasts much of the latest and most modern fish finding technology so you will be guaranteed of catching a few!
There are a variety of fish in these waters from the famous Dhufish, Dolphin Fish, Pink Snapper, Red Snapper, Breaksea Cod, Baldchin Groper and more and during the jigging seasons the fishing charters also aim to catch Samson Fish and Amberjacks. You can reel in any of these fish depending on the type of fishing charter you are booking onto.
For the avid fisherman there is also the chance to put together a few friends and head out for the night to get in as much fishing as possible. With comfortable accommodation, meals and all the rods, reels, tackle and bait you require plus the crew may also fillet your fish, this is a fishing charter you will never forget. The coast of Western Australia is renowned for its fishing and diving so you must experience at least one of them!
You can arrange to book out the boat for the entire day or for overnight or extended stays on the water or perhaps you may like to bring the family out and just require a few seats on a day charter, there are many options to take a look at. There are estuary fishing charters and mud crabbing adventures as well, where you will not only go fishing, but there is bird watching and wildlife spotting along the way. The ocean fishing charters are also privy to other attractions such as dolphin spotting and during the months of June and September you will be able to see the migrating humpback whales at play.
