About This Boat

Bill Raiser is an Owner Operated charter fishing boat operating from the beautiful port of Bermagui. We specialise in big game fishing and target Marlin, Tuna and Sharks. Our focus is on giving you a great day on the water and we will fish a variety of techniques to maximise your chances of hooking the big one! Depending on the conditions and what’s been happening in the area, we will troll lures, live bait, skip bait or try switch baits, when our teasers raise a marlin.

Bermagui is situated on the south coast of New South Wales. Known as the Sapphire Coast, this region is a great tourist destination and apart from the spectacular big game fishing at Bermagui, it’s within easy reach of towns like Merimbula, Bega, Tathra, Narooma, Moruya, Ulladulla and Batemans Bay.

Bermagui is one of the most spectacular and safest harbours on the south coast, allowing access in most weather conditions.

The Continental Shelf is at its closest point to Mainland Australia, being only 13 miles off the coast at Bermagui. The shelf, as well as the associated underwater systems like the 12 mile reef, attract pelagic fish almost all year round. Autumn and early winter bring schools of Yellowfin Tuna to the area. Spring sees the arrival of the southern Bluefin Tuna, Albacore and, as the weather warms up we see the arrival of the mighty Striped Marlin. Some of the largest Striped Marlin you will ever see follow the warm currents to this region. Other billfish, such as the Black Marlin and the huge Blue Marlin also frequent the waters off Bermagui.

If sports fishing is your passion, or if you just want to give it a go, then call us to tailor a fishing package to suit you. Rather than trolling for a full day, why not consider a combination package – half day out deep and then finish up with some reef fishing, to give you an opportunity to catch your dinner! There’s no need to pay extra for a recreational fishing license either, we cover everyone on board under ours.

Enjoy a day with us aboard a very well maintained 36 foot Steber chasing marlin, tuna or sharks off the beautiful south coast of NSW. Bermagui is one of the marlin hot spots along the eastern Australia coastline and our knowledge of these productive fishing grounds pays dividends.

A day you will be unlikely to forget in a hurry!

We use only quality tackle along with the best rods and reels, however if you have an outfit of your own that you would like to test out on the “big one”, then just let us know.

You do not need a minimum to book and the vessel can take up to 6 passengers and 2 crew.


Billraiser is an ex NSW Fisheries vessel built by Steber to strict USL codes and NSW marine survey standards. She is one of the most comfortable vessels and is very stable in all sorts of weather. Fully fitted with all required safety equipment.
