Trips normally depart around 9.00 am or 1.00pm and return around 12.30pm or 5.00pm with a full day being approximately 8 hours on the water and a half day around 4 hours.
NB: There are also night fishing trips but are based on request.
The areas fished will depend upon the weather and how the fish are biting.
At certain times of the year the lake can be very rough with large swells and so then we tend to utilize the sheltered bays for fishing.
A picnic lunch is provided with a cool box of beers, mineral water and sodas as well as tea and coffee. Anglers are free to bring along additional drinks required.
NB: Sporting Spots sometimes are changeable depending on the requirements of the client. Only destinations afar will result in change in budgets.
