About Us

Chase the Bite Charters opened in 2020, and we are equipped with brand new fishing gear and equipment, using the best quality brands including the latest Daiwa products.

Our vessel is a 23 ft custom fishing vessel, powered by twin Suzuki DF-140 motors with 105KW, which are designed to quickly and safely take you to the best locations offshore of Sydney.  We are licensed to take you up to 30 nautical miles off the Sydney coast, targeting the hot spots to give you the best chance to catch the big fish that are biting on the day.  This is significantly further out from shore than most other charters go!   We can take up to 5 customers, and you will be joined by the skipper and our deckhand.

Our skipper is Shane Dwyer, a highly experienced angler who has over twenty years of experience fishing in and around Sydney. 

Shane has competed successfully in a long list of game and sportfishing tournaments and still holds the NSW junior record for the largest striped marlin in NSW (Line Class 15).  Shane’s knowledge of the local waters is second to none, and you could not find a better fishing guide for your charter.

Shane is a fully qualified Master V and Marine Engine Drive Grade 2, and has all required first aid qualifications to ensure that you are in safe hands on our charters.

The offshore waters of Sydney are home to a variety of big game fish, which varies depending on the time of year. On our charters we target Snapper, Jewfish, Dorado, Bonito, Marlin, Tuna, Albacore, and several species of Sharks which congregate along the fishing grounds, as well as all the many colourful and varied reef species. For targeting these and other seasonal species, we provide live, dead and artificial bait on our trips, depending on what types of fish you’re targeting.
