Fish the offshore waters of the Sunshine Coast aboard the charter boat “Capricorn” or the inshore waters on “Kuhlia” with your local owner operator skipper Robert Smith, known locally as “Smithy”. Established for seven years, he is now one of the longest working charter boat businesses out of Mooloolaba.
We are fully licensed to fish the “Barwon Banks”, “The Hards” & “The Shelf” and all points in between including many wrecks.

Smithys Fishing Charters are also members of the QSIA (Queensland Seafood Industry Association’s) PCOQ (Professional Charter Operators of Queensland) division so you know you are in safe hands.

We use and recommend Gary Howard Custom Rods and Fin Nor reels.

After the morning presentation breakfast for the tournament we choofed off for and arvo charter. The bait looked good where a couple of boats had done well but no bites for us. We anchored and the reefies were on straight away. A couple of bigger cod made it back to the bottom but Tom got this nice one to the top.

The offshore boat used for fishing charters is a Reelax Capricorn Sportfisher built at Woongoolba between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

For Qld survey purposes the boat measures 7.7m and can carry 8 people in total. Its operational limit is 50Nm from land or partially smooth waters putting it in range of fishing hotspots like Cape Moreton, Caloundra Wide, the Caloundra 12mile, the 50m line, Chardons Reef, North Reef plus numerous wrecks and that is just off the Sunshine Coast.

It is powered by a 230hp 4 cylinder Yanmar diesel engine maintaining a genuine 18knot cruise speed in most seas.

Electronics wise, the boat is fitted with a Lowrance 5300Ci GPS Chartplotter, iCom VHF radio, a 1kW FCV-585 Furuno sounder, 400C Garmin sounder, TMQ-AP4 autopilot and a USB/SD/FM radio player.

In the fishing department the boat sports all the best Reelax gear, a large live bait tank, as well as a Canon electric downrigger. We use and recommend Gary Howard Custom Rods and Fin Nor reels.  Photo by John Dwyer.

The inshore boat used for fishing charters is a 4.55m Seajay Nomad built at Bundaberg.  It is registered for smooth waters and 4 people total.  Powered by a four stroke 50hp Yamaha outboard there is no smell, vibration or noise.  It sports an electric trolling motor and a Lowrance depth sounder.  We operate when booked in the Pumicestone Passage, Mooloolah, Maroochy and Noosa Rivers, the freshwater dams inland from this region or custom trips to further away destinations are available.  Photo by David Granville.
