Your Skipper

far out skipper

Meet your Captain, Tony Kemna

Hi, I'm your Skipper for the duration of your Lakes Entrance Charter (Far Out Charters).

I started fishing at a very young age, with my father, at Port Albert, Welshpool and McLaughlin’s Beach, chasing species such as snapper, flathead, gummy shark and whiting.

In 2003 I purchased Far Out from Bass Straight boats in Bairnsdale. I watched as the boat was built from ground up. It was a dream come true and I have been taking people fishing on the ocean ever since.

In 2016, I purchased another boat, Far Out II from Bass Straight Boats in Bairnsdale. This one is a Bass Straight 30, with a 370hp turbo charged Volvo penta diesel motor.

In 2005 I purchased my first commercial fishing licence, to catch snapper in Victorian waters and then later a Tuna licence and shark licence. When you come fishing with me, you can be sure we'll spend a lot of time fishing, because when I am not chartering, that’s my job.

The fish I catch commercially go to the Melbourne and Sydney fish markets and from there go to restaurants and fish shops all over Victoria.

My promise to you as your captain is to do my best to put you on the fish and send you home with your esky full to share with your family and friends.

We've never come back empty handed from a fishing charter trip yet. Make Lakes Entrance your next fishing charter and you won't be dissapointed.
