Lakes Entrance charter, Far Out II, is a Bass Strait 30 with a 370hp turbo charged Volvo penta diesel. Farout II is suitable for fishing in Bass Strait. Far Out II is also in 2b survey, which allows us to take you 100 nautical miles off-shore for marlin, tuna and sharks.
Far Out is a dry ride and soft riding mono hull, so you stay warm and comfortable throughout your trip. We have the best fish finding equipment, including a new Furuno fish finder, radar, and GPS, and a proper toilet. So with equipment like that, the fish haven’t got a chance.
We supply you with only the best fishing tackle, including Shimano reels and ugly stick rods, spooled with 30lb line so that big one won’t get away.
Bait is also provided. We generally use pilchards and squid, depending on what the fish are eating, as they can be fussy.
We are a COVID safe charter and have hand sanitizer and hand washing basin with disinfectant dispenser for your safety.Masks also available if required.
Far Out II is in survey for 12 passengers but with COVID this number varies according to requirements. Please call for exact numbers.
As always my vessel and equipment will be cleaned to the highest of standard for your safety after every charter.
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.
