About Reel Action Charters


Owner Colin Hombsch has been skippering charter vessels on the Sunshine Coast for 15 years.

The Fishing Options

The waters off the Sunshine Coast offer great fishing year-round. The area is a convergence of tropical and temperate waters that bring big bait schools to the inner reefs which attract the juvenile black marlin all the way down to the Bribie Island “Trench” from December through April.

Further out to the 18mile schools of slimey mackerel attract the slightly larger black marlin and sailfish.

These fish offer novice through to experienced anglers great action on the light tackle.

Meanwhile on the shelf you can fish for blue and striped marlin all the way from Noosa Canyons in the north to Cape Moreton in the south as well as everywhere between.

Our home port of Mooloolaba offers great access to the fishing grounds from a popular holiday hub.
