About Wildside Sportfishing
Wildside Sportfishing is a family run guided fishing tour business based in South West Rocks, northern NSW. We run Sport Fishing, Game Fishing and Estuary Charters. This small town is blessed with incredible natural beauty and arguably some of best beaches on the entire coast (and the country if you ask me). Wildlife abounds around every turn with friendly kangaroos living in most residential streets. It is also one of the closest points to the continental shelf - approximately 12NM out. The deep water running in close to shore drags all kinds of Gamefish like black and blue marlin, dolphin fish (mahi mahi), yellowfin tuna, wahoo and sword fish within easy reach. Sports fish like kingfish, cobia, spanish mackerel, spotted mackerel, longtail tuna and are regular visitors. The Macleay River boasts healthy stocks of mulloway, mangrove jacks, trevally, flathead, bream and kingfish at times! We are passionate, fully licensed, insured and look forward to having you on board!

We just completed 3 superb days of fishing with Skipper Jason. The passion and professionalism displayed by Jason ensured success and satisfaction. We targeted fish (Kingfish, Dolphin Fish, Snapper etc. and were successful with each endeavour. The Contender (boat) is beautifully maintained as is all the fishing equipment. We were also delighted to tag and release many fish to ensure opportunity for future fishing enthusiasts. We will be back possibly for the Mackeral run.

Within 10 minutes of the first drift jason had us all on to some decent snapper and that set the tone for day. A constant stream of snapper and pearl perch hooked whilst whales and dolphins hung around all day. The equipment, boat and expertise was next level and have not come across a more professional skipper and fisherman. We've already booked our next charter🤙👍

Had an awesome day out on the water with Jason. He went above and beyond to check the weather conditions for the day were safe enough for us before heading out and did everything he could to get us all onto some big fish. His boat and gear is top notch and handled the conditions very well whilst giving us all plenty of space to fish and enjoy the day. Even got to watch a pod of dolphins attacking a bait ball and saw whales popping up around us all day Can't recommend a day on the water with Jason enough 👍
