The Panama II has New Owners!

My name is Tony (Pud) Pollard, myself and my son Tyson have recently taken over ownership of Mako Fishing Charters, on the vessel Panama II.

The Panama II is a professionally built 52 foot alloy boat in current MSV survey, that has been operating as a Lakes Entrance Fishing Charter for many years.

I personally have more than 35 years experience in Bass Strait as a commercial fisherman, so I know and understand the local fishing grounds. I know what precautions and limitations to observe to make your Fishing Charter both safe and enjoyable.

I can give you the best possible chance of catching prime table fish, such as gummy shark, pink snapper, flathead, leatherjacket, morwong and more. All the species that Lakes Entrance is famous for.

Tyson, my son, is a very experienced, capable and disciplined hand, and thus we are both on hand to assist you.

Everything on your Fishing Charter is provided for. All bait and tackle, sunscreen, tea, coffee and bottled water. Even some light snacks are available.

Your catch is cleaned for you, ready to take home, and we will look after you to the best of our ability.

Custom Fishing Charters are also available, enabling you to choose the time of departure and duration of the Charter.
