Fishing on Beachcomber
We are passionate about our marine environment and support sustainable fishing. We encourage customers to only take what they need. We return all undersized and unwanted fish to the water quickly to minimise injury. We euthanize kept fish in a timely and humane manner.
This bit of boating wisdom came with the boat: It’s common knowledge that Mariners view bananas as bearers of bad luck. The reasons for this and the way that bad luck manifests varies depending on who you talk to but, in the interest of making sure you have a good catch, and a great day out - we’d sooner leave them off-board.
