Do you want to do jigging or bottom bouncing for a feed? Bluejuice or Mills are generally the go out of Hillaries. We have had some success on executive charters out of Hillaries and its a pretty sweet ride being a cat, but I think they changed owners a little while back and I haven't been out since. I'm not too sure on charters out of Mindarie, we went Anchor charters a few years back and did quite well, but I also think they have new owners and is located at East Freo now. Hopefully someone else has been on one more recently than I have and can help out.

Jigging

Jigging is a damn good time, problem is you hurt the next day. If you get a good skipper and he finds the schools then the jigging part isnt a problem and you'll probably end up too sore to finish fishing by the end of the day. Depends how strong the ladies are, they give you some serious stick and a lot of the time its holding on for dear life so you don't get pulled in with them. Plenty of fun tho!!! :)
