What's the best way to get in touch with Skipper Matt?

As Skipper is often taking charters out to sea, he is frequently out of mobile range. You best bet is to text Skipper Matt on 0419 760 510 and he will respond as soon as he can.

Do you guarantee I will catch a fish?

While Skipper Matt is a born and bred fisherman with decades of experience and knowledge of the region’s best fishing spots, naturally some factors such as weather are out of Matt’s control, so he can’t absolutely guarantee success. Having said that, if Matt can’t get you to land a fish, pretty much nobody could.
