It’s been a busy weekend for Rip Charters. Fishing out of Sorrento Pier and Queenscliff Harbour we did several trips over Saturday and Sunday. With fantastic May weather and beautiful conditions in Bass Strait, Snapper fishing was on the cards and we delivered with some great Snapper, Flathead, Nannygai, Thresher shark and Gummy shark. Big Blue had a bucks party on the Saturday and had a great catch of Ocean Flathead, while Rip Runner fished the deep reefs off Barwon Heads securing plenty of good sized Snapper, with one lucky fisherman managing to wrangle a decent size Kingfish for this time of year.
Just letting you know we (Julie, George and Michael Sloan) had a great time on Sunday morning. It was well run and friendly with the skipper and his crewman working hard to make it an enjoyable and informative day for all.
And we caught some fish, which we have already eaten. The flathead and red Mullet being the best for me! At lunch we agreed that we would do this again! Well done.
Hey guys, just got home from todays fishing trip, and had the salmon for tea, it was absolutely fantastic. Thanks for an awesome day (again). Hope to be able to do another trip soon!
Went out with Tony and Joe today.
I would just like to let you know that they were terrific.
Very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.
It is probably what I expected, but, most of the time when you expect it, doesn't arrive very often. It sure did on this occasion
Could you please pass on my thanks to both Tony and Joe, they are a credit to your company. I'm hoping to do a snapper trip at a later date and will definitely go out with those guys.
I would also be delighted to recommend "Rip Charters to all my friends, and will.
Thanks Sharina for a wonderful fishing charter last Sunday.
The fishing was good and the skipper had a lot of patience in his choice of locations.
The fishing options were made easier because the boat had a range of gear on board from light rigs to trolling gear.
Most of my praise went to the helpful crew that kept the hooks baited all day and gave us all great encouragement throughout the day.
To the Boy's on the Rip Runner.
I thank you for the best birthday trip, could not have asked for two great guy's who made the day so exciting and fun .
I just wanted to say thank you all for the great day we had fishing last Thursday. Your 3 crew members (NIck, Rick & Tony) were so helpful.
I would highly recommend your fishing trips and hopefully will be back in the not too distant future.
Thank you so much for a fantastic day on the water. Phil and the boys were full of knowledge. I will definitely be going again sometime.
Just wanted to say trip was great, thanks. Please pass on a big thanks to skipper and crew who did a fantastic job. I have been on a few charters over the years and not once did any of them put in as much effort in trying to find fish for us. Thanks heaps again and I will be booking again and recommending you to all my mates.
Just a note to say thank you and to compliment you on the expertise and rapport of Janette and Nick your Captain and first mate. I would recommend your fishing charter and will be making contact to secure future bookings with Kestrel III. On behalf of my son and myself, I would like you to pass on this endorsement to Janette and Nick.
I just want to thank Tony, Arthur and Joe for making our fishing experience so great! We caught lots of flat head and some squid. While the weather was not the best, everyone had a terrific time. I want to especially thank Joe, who was great with kids - my son and his friends had a wonderful time and were made to feel very welcome!
Once again, thank you for a memorable experience
Great day out. You made sure my kids had a memorable experience, and we are still enjoying the flathead and trevally we caught.
On behalf of "Mrs parks victoria" (kate) and myself I'd like to pass on our thanks for a great day on Sunday...we really enjoyed the day and the cameraderie...phil and the shrekky dekkies provided a fantastic service...a highlight was the champion effort put on by the young girl who outfished all of us...that girl has become an angler for life...
Just wanting to thank you, Toby and the crew for taking us out yesterday. Everyone had a great time.
Just wanted to say thanks for a great day on Saturday. My 2 mates and I had a great day with Gav and Thumbtack! The boys couldn't do enough for us and made sure we had a fantastic time. We will certainly be making this an annual event.
Thanks guys an excellent day out fishing, really enjoyed it.
