We were very impressed with Wildcat Charters fishing trip. From the safety instructions given by Leigh at the start right through to the expertly filleted fish, it was truly an experience. The boat was well presented, very comfortable and well equipped. We were also offered tea/coffee and biscuits. The fishing was great with a wide variety caught. Leigh and his crew were on hand to offer expert advice with baiting and removing fish which was done efficiently, ensuring the fish which was not of size and quota returned to the sea unharmed. We would also highly recommend staying at the Wildcat Motel for a comfortable stay with the owners/operator of the Wildcat Charters.
