Deep Sea & King Fishing
Deep Sea Fishing is available all year round. The 40 Fathom Reef lies approximately 8 miles off shore and our 70 fathom Reef approximately 15 miles offshore, which can make for some serious winding!
Our Deep Sea Reef systems are home to a wide variety of species including:
- Tasmanian Trumpeter
- Leather Jackets
- Tiger Flathead
- Deep Sea Perch
The Kingfish grounds lie approx. 10 miles south of Merimbula, and lie a mile or so offshore. Kingfish are a fantastic fighting fish on medium to light tackle, and will be sure to give you a good run for your money! Not to mention the fact that they are a beautiful table fish.
The Kingfish season runs typically over 3-4 months (subject to currents), from November to February.
Deep Sea and Kingfish charters operate over 8 hours with a maximum of 6 anglers on a share charter basis and up to 12 passengers on private charters to ensure you maximum space and comfort.
Quality rods, reels, bait, tackle and fishing licensing requirements are supplied on board all Deep Sea and Kingfish Charters.
Tea, coffee and a light morning snack is also provided and you are welcome to BYO any food or drinks you may like throughout the day.
All charters depart from the main public wharf
Market Street Merimbula (opposite the Lakeview Hotel).
A New South Wales fishing licence is not required while fishing on board Reel Affair.
