Western Australia’s
Montebello Islands are a
Fishing Paradise!

Aptly named Montebello which is Italian for “beautiful mountain”, the islands form a conservation park administered by the Western Australian Department of Environment and Conservation. Montebello Islands fishing is extraordinary as is the incredible scenery in this spectacular area.

Abrolhos Island fishing
& great surfing, snorkelling,
diving & even bird watching

The Abrolhos are in the stream of the Leeuwin Current which runs from North West Cape at Exmouth, south along the WA coast to Cape Leeuwin where it curls eastward along South Australia and flowing all the way to Tasmania. The current creates a meeting place for tropical and temperate marine life and is the southernmost place where true corals will be found in WA.

Mind blowing Montebello Islands Experience!!
Such a fantastic experience fishing with Blue Lightning at the Montebello Islands. This was my second trip and Chad and Leah made me feel like family! Chad’s experience certainly shows with so many spots and super hot fishing. Everything from demersal jigging/ soft plastics to GT fishing and targeting pelagics (Sailfish, Black Marlin, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel etc). Leah is a whiz in the kitchen – the hostess with the mostest ???? preparing super delicious meals and snacks throughout the entire day and night! Sam the decky did an amazing job – always smiling and always there to lend a hand with anything. I also really enjoyed trips to the various islands, free diving and seeing amazing coral and fish etc etc. Thanks again team – can’t say good enough things about this trip – can’t wait to return again soon!!!!

Chad and Leah, thank you for a most memorable, enjoyable and adrenaline filled charter. The 5 days were filled with amazing fishing adventures with loads of stories discussed each night. Many thanks also to Jake our deckie who was run off his feet looking after the nine of us, but he kept up the pace. Keep up the good work you are doing a great job with what you offer on your charters.

I hope to see you all again next year
