“Fun for all ages”

Relax, Go Fishing Charters
Reviewed 25 December 2017 via mobile

Had a fun day out with other families for a 4hr fishing session. Skip and right hand man were helpful and assisted with any help needed.

Fishes were a bit elusive that day but still a enjoyable experience.

We booked with 20 which was easy to do online. The skipper, crew and boat were all fantastic which ensured we enjoyed the fishing trip. All on board had a great time. It rained a bit but there was ample cover. One of our fishos was given a bath towell as he got soaked so full care was given and considered at all times. Any tangle or baiting was attended to quickly ensuring fishing time was maximised. We also moved around when the fish went off the bite at one spot to ensure we keep catching out other spots. It was seemless. BBQ was done without fuss and there was ample to eat. Everyone caught fish and most took something home for the plate. Top trip.

Left Mornington Pier for 5 hour fishing charter with 5 family members including grandson. Day was overcast and water smooth. Despite this grandson brought up burley before we cast off.
Skipper and deck hand most helpful and even though we had limited success we all had a great time. They provided new rods, reels and bait. Tried three locations only managed a Snapper, Flathead, 2 Banjo Sharks and a Stingray. Fishing was fun, company great, told a lot of jokes, BBQ sausages on bread with sauce went down well.
All in all a great morning on the Bay.

Relax go fishing was fantastic value for money. Staff are very helpful to get you set up fishing. BBQ was great plenty of food and drinks. As a family it was very enjoyable, we all caught some fish and then we're taught how to fillet it. The bay is gorgeous and we were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins close by. Thanks for a great experience.

The advertising did not reflect the experience.
The rods and reels were in poor condition, missing guides, stiff reels and very heavy mono lines.
The bait was of extremely poor quality, soft pilchards that fell off the hook and very small squid baits more akin to flathead and whiting fishing but the fishing line was > 10kg so not a good mix.
The pilot of the boat took us to 1 spot over a mud bank and stayed there for 4 hours despite our request to try a different spot when the spot yielded so few fish.
Other charters operating visibly moved around in search of fish but we remained anchored up and we were told "fishing is a waiting game"
The keeping fish for the trip were 2 small pinkies and 3 small 28-30cm flathead which were left in plastic baskets on the deck for the duration of the trip and not put on ice.
The BBQ consisted of thin sausages on a piece of bread (no butter)
The parting comment from the pilot of the boat was "if you knew how to fish you would have done better"
Well you were the skipper and you fished all day providing little help or advice and you didn't catch 1 keeper so maybe that is the true reflection of the amateurish business Relax Go Fishing is.
