Sandy Bottom Boat Charters incorporates the latest gear and tackle equipment recommended, with Dan’s experience and knowledge coming straight from the heart of Newcastle. Our up-to-date gear and tackle includes Ugly Stick rods in the 6-10kg weight range, with Penn Liveliner 4000 reels for live and fresh baiting the shallow reefs and sandflats.

For the sports fisher we offer the latest Abu Garcia 4000 size Revo Premier reels, matched with Abu Garcia Verita rods in the 5-9kg weight range. These are perfect for flicking lures and squid jigs. For the larger game fish, a combination of Shimano Tiagras in the 30W-50W series matched to 15 and 24kg Tiagra rods are used.

All our reels are spooled with a Berkley Fireline braid ensuring that every bite, on land or boat, will be felt.
