Having joined the team at Angler’s Rest in late September I thought it was time to take advantage of the boat hire and test out the holiday house waterfront mansion…

Holiday House Waterfront Mansion

I booked Greenwell Point Holiday House for 3 nights mid week. Greenwell Point Holiday House Waterfront Mansion is enormous.  It has amazing water front views and plenty of space for everyone.  There are 3 large bedrooms, large open plan lounge room, dinning area, kitchen, spa bathroom and enough space in the front and back yards to park 6 cars or boats if I wanted.

We were greeted by Simon in the shop and he took us through the paperwork, provided us with advice and fishing tips.

We packed up the sunscreen, water and fishing gear and set off down to the jetty opposite the holiday house, where Simon had launched the boat and was ready with life jackets and boat, waiting to give us our safety instruction. The safety instruction was very informative and included recommendations of where to fish, things to see and most importantly how to operate the boat.

After the instruction we eagerly set off in search of Flathead fish and some great South Coast scenery.

We headed up the River for about 20mins where we let the boat drift back in the direction we came from. We pulled out our fishing bait, cast our lines and crossed our fingers for a catch. Within minutes there were small bites and it wasn’t long before my husband pulled in his first flathead. It was clearly undersized so after a quick happy snap (proof that we actually caught something) we released him back to the river.

It wasn’t long again before I caught my very own flathead, this time it was above the legal size so we kept this one for dinner. After drifting for another hour or so and having caught a total of 8 fish, we were proud of our efforts and decided to head back to the jetty, so we could get started cooking up our catch on the BBQ provided at the holiday house.

Who would have thought boat hire and fishing on the Crookhaven river could be so easy and rewarding!

The prime location of Greenwell Point Holiday House Waterfront Mansion and Angler’s Rest Boat Hire not only gave us a means to catch dinner but also provided me with a great way to show off my local area, work place and my “fishing skills” to my guests.

We had a great stay and I can honestly say now from first hand experience that if you are looking for a great day out on the water in search of Flathead or a South Coast fishing getaway, you should head on down to Greenwell Point and see the great staff at Angler’s Rest!
