Family fishing adventure

The Boys run a great show and were great with their interaction with the customers. We had 6 is our group and all of us caught some fish although around half were just under size. We had two young boys with us the crew interacted with them great. We would have loved some larger fish but that’s why they call it fishing and not catching. We would all do this trip again.

Tru-Blu 1/2 day deep sea fishing

Wasn't a successful day for fishing due to conditions. But that's fishing. The guys tried everything so we could catch fish but they weren't around to catch. Four nice snapper where caught by a lucky fellow and a lot of baby taylor for bait. My sister and I are definitely going to try again.

Should not have gone out in the weather conditions

I booked this trip because they actually state that the trip is dependant on high winds and high seas. In my opinion we should not have gone out. The wind was blowing strong and seas were very high. Some swells looked 4 to 5 metres high. Extremely uncomfortable conditions to fish in. Standing up was extremely hard and dangerous. The swells could knock you off your feet. There were little kids on this trip and anyone could have fallen overboard in those swells. The crew on the day were extremely helpful and pleasant. Wish they would have changed the trip to another day. https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ShowUserReviews-g658994-d8066841-r461332991-Gold_Coast_Fishing_Charters-Main_Beach_Gold_Coast_Queensland.html#
