Here are a few ideas on how to enjoy your fishing charter experience in Narooma.

  • Research is key

When you’re signing up for a charter fishing trip, it’s important to do your research and find a company that offers quality experience. Look for companies with reliable charters who keep their word and pay attention to the little details. 

These kinds of companies will ensure the trip runs smoothly. At chaterfishnarooma, we offer fishing charters for beginners and experienced anglers alike.

  • Let the charter company know what you are looking for

One of the things that you need to do before booking a charter is to let the company know what kind of fishing you like to do. There are different kinds of fishing. If you find a company that specializes in the type of fishing you like to do, that will be great.

Unfortunately, not all charters specialize in everything. You might find yourself on a boat with fish that aren’t exactly what you’d consider the “fancy” types to keep. If that happens, you are going to have a really hard time having a successful trip. You need to let the company know what kind of fishing you like, so they can put together a charter that works for your preferences.

  • Make sure the trip has a variety of fish

You will notice that the fish you are catching are not the same species all through the year. Typically, fish caught during a charter will be different from the types of fish you are likely to catch on your own.

You shouldn’t expect your general fishing partners to know about, or care about, the seasons, fish, and weather changes in the area. In the summer, when the waters are warm, the fish you catch on the charter will likely be different. 

Many companies will let you know the fish to expect in which season and year. This detail is particularly important if you are interested in targeting specific types of fish like striped or king salmon. It’s also a good idea to ask about the availability of certain fish in the area.

It’s likely that the boats that pick you up will have some experience with the fish you are interested in trying out. But, you won’t know that for sure until you get on board and let the skipper know what you are interested in.
