Our History (Who We Are)
Harbour and Estuary Fishing Charters fish out of Broken Bay, Brisbane Water and Pittwater for giant jewfish, kingfish, flathead plus a range of smaller species including snapper, bream, trevally and whiting.
Our skipper, Peter Le Blang is a very experienced fishing guide who has been in the industry for more than 15 years delighting customers with their catches. He grew up in Berowra and his early pastime of fishing soon became a passion that has taken him all over Australia and overseas in the hunt for knowledge and to catch that 'fish of a lifetime'.
Peter now resides on Scotland Island in Pittwater where he has lived for over fourteen years, so his knowledge of Pittwater, Broken Bay and the Hawkesbury River is hard to beat, and is contacted weekly for his fishing reports and downrigging classes.
A columnist for New South Wales Fishing Monthly, Peter writes for many websites including ET Online Magazine and reports fortnightly on ABC Big Fish Program with Scott Levi, as well as weekly on 2CCC radio. He has recently appeared with Dave Butfield on his TV Shows and you'll also find him on Dave's DVD 'Kingfish Secrets' showing some of the secrets of Pittwater whilst downrigging.
Peter has been downrigging for over 20 years, refining his techniques to result in a hook up rate of over 90% for his Kingfish Charters; something few others have managed to achieve. Whether you'd like to target other species in the estuaries or offshore, Peter has a similar strike rate for these charters too.
If learning to downrig is more your style or if you'd like to catch that 'fish of a lifetime' - Pittwater Pete is your man.
