The Hooker is designed by fishermen for fishermen. Fast to the fishing grounds and a good stable platform to fish from when you arrive.
Had the pleasure of fishing with Bob last week, hands down the best fishing experience I have had! the first fish took all of 2 minutes once we got to the spot, and they just kept coming until we drove away from them to give the arms a break. Good quality gear, endless knowledge of the types of fish/location and when they are biting, a great boat with a soft ride and a top bloke to spend the day with, ill definitely be booking another day or 2 out with them again.
Highly recommend Hot Reels Fishing Charters! My brother, Dad and I had an awesome experience on the boat – Bob was friendly, professional and just as keen as us to catch some fish! We came home with a nice haul for the day. The boat even comes with a toilet for the ladies! Overall an awesome experience with a dedicated captain – we will definitely be back!
Friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. Will put you on the fish. Great rolls! Thanks for a cracker day. Catch you next time.
Had an absolute blast out on Hervey Bay on Hot Reels Pro Fish Charters recently with Bob. Got to see and fish Hervey Bay like never before. Bob is highly knowledgeable and just a great, down to earth bloke. Got me us on to many species of fish that day from reefies, Tuna, Mackerel and my first ever Golden Trevally. A day I will never forget and can't wait to do it all again soon. 🙂
Fished with Bobbie on Saturday, weather wasn’t great but we still got on the fish... learnt new techniques and had a amazing day highly recommend!!!!
From the booking process, the comms leading up to my charter and the epic day on the water today, hands down best fishing charter i have been on. Worked hard for our fish but nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic boat, great quality gear and super friendly skipper, already planning next trip. Do yourself a favour and get on board Hot Reels, you will not regret it!
Have fished with bob for many years. Now he has started a fishing charter i cant wait to get up to the bay and get amongst the big ones. This bloke knows how to fish. He could catch fish in a bath tub. Would not hesitate to recommend his charter service. The boat is excellent and he only uses quality gear.
Great personal experience with a top bloke. Caught plenty of fish, learnt some new skills and had a good laugh. Will definitely be booking again for our next Hervey Bay holiday!
I've been on a fair few charters and this is hands down the best charter I've ever been on. Bob is a top bloke. He taught us a bucket load. Highly recommend it. Took a huge esky full of a large variety of fish home. The boat is very personal. Was only the 3 of us on the boat. No randoms. My mates and I are already planning our next trip. He definitely put us on the money.
Great charter bob knows his fishing well worth a trip out on his boat. Thanks for the sore arms see you again next time
Highly recommend a day on the water with Hot Reels Pro Fish Charters if your looking to do a day of fishing in Hervey Bay. Bob is a top bloke who has decades of fishing experience and does not stop working all day to put you onto fish.
What a great day fishing I had with Bob aboard his awesome boat. The boat has heaps of power to get you where you need to go fast, it’s comfortable, roomy with heaps of shade. Bob is a legend of a guide who is more than happy to share his wealth of knowledge and help put you onto your fish of a lifetime. Can’t wait to come back and try some of the other fishing experiences Hot Reels has to offer.
Bobbys awesome. Knows his stuff and knows all the great spots to hook up. Had an amazing day out will definitely go again. Cheers matey🤙🏽
I've been on a few charters in Hervey bay and Hot Reels Pro Fish Charters was by far the best charter by a country mile! Bob could not have been more accommodating and put us right on the fish...Beautiful lunch supplied, all in all a cracking day.Just awesome.
Had a fantastic day out with Bob. Gave the old arms a real good work out. Put us on the fish and the action never stopped. Thanks for a great day out.
Crazy day out! First time I went on charter and it was amazing! Hot Reels deliver the goods! Got two smashing fish and non stop action from start till finish!
Hi Bob, I’d like to thank you for the great trip my son and I had with you recently. We fished in the Great Sandy Strait using soft plastics on light gear. We’d never used soft plastics before and you were very patient in helping us to learn the right technique. We moved around allot and caught a good number of fish at each drop. The boat was easy to move around, and with only 4 fishers aboard, it was very comfortable for all. The lunch was great and there was plenty of water and soft drinks for everyone. I would have no hesitation in recommending a trip with you!
Will recommend to anyone regardless of fishing experience. Will give you a fun filled day out on the water and is happy to teach you his personal secrets to help you catch your dream fish. The boat is 110% great shade coverage super comfortable couch and plenty of room to move and cast lures it handles like an absolute dream and keeps you dry! Bobby will have you in stitches all day amazing character and will do what ever it takes to ensure you have the best day exploring his beautiful backyard.
I had an awesome day on-board Hotreels Pro fish Charters! The ride out to the reef was great.. smooth and comfortable. We pulled a vast variety of reef species including red emperor, snapper, mangrove jack and hussar to name just a few. Bob was extremely knowledgeable and taught me a few great techniques with the micro jigs and soft plastics. All in all I would definitely recommend this charter.. one of the best days on the water I have ever had!
