Montebello Islands, Western Australia
FISHING THE MONTEBELLO ISLANDS
The Montebello Islands are one of Western Australia's most remote, pristine fishing destinations. Lying 130kms off the coast of Dampier, consisting of an archipelago of 174 small islands, the Monties (as it's affectionately known) is a fisherman’s paradise!
The species you can target at the Montebello Islands is endless and with 18 years of experience Captain Chad is happy to cater for what individual group wants to do each day.
The fishing opportunities include but are not limited to:
- Top Water Stickbaiting and Popping for GTs
- Shallow Water Casting for GTs, Coral Trout etc.
- Jigging for Red Emperor, Rankin Cod, Coral Trout, Saddletail Sea Perch etc.
- Trolling for Sailfish, Black Marlin, Yellowfin & Longtail Tuna, Sailfish and Wahoo
- Flats fly fishing for Blue Bastards, Permit, Black Spot Tusk Fish etc.
Your home for 7 days is aboard Blue Lightning. This 55ft Conquest is a custom built fishing machine. At the end of each day enjoy stepping off Blue Lightning to relax on a purpose built pontoon located in a 360 degree protected bay, along side San Souci the mothership. Heart Starter - a 26ft Boston Whaler is also available for Shallow Water casting, snorkelling and being dropped off to explore and fish one of the many islands in the group!
The trip offers 5 full days of fishing around the Montebello Islands.
Each day fishing typically runs from 8:00am - 4:00pm depending on the weather, tides and what the group wants to do on the day.
At the end of each day Blue Lightning heads back to it's fully protected anchorage and moors up against a purpose built pontoon. The pontoon is fitted with lounges, dining table and chairs to relax and enjoy the sunset, drinks and dinner. Also moored at the pontoon is the magnificent San Souci mothership.
