About Mad Keen Fishing Charters
Chase the Thumping Big Reds of the Spencer Gulf, Yorke Peninsula, South Australia:
Mad Keen Fishing Charters is an award winning locally owned company and
operate three boats out of Wallaroo and Port Broughton. Our Skippers are professional
and local fishermen with unsurpassed knowledge in fishing these pristine waters.
They are well respected in the fishing industry and are eager to share their knowledge
with you and are willing to offer coaching so that you have every opportunity to
maximize your fishing adventure.
We have opened a shop in the main street of Wallaroo to operate from. Come in and
check out the “wall of fame” you could be there too.
We operate with a minimum of 5 people to a maximum of 34 people allowing groups
of fishermen and women or individuals (tourists to the Yorke Peninsula) wanting
to join with others to try their hand at landing the Big Red Snapper or the King
George Whiting that this area is famous for.
“Mad Keen Fishing Charters are more than just fishing”
– we can transform our boat Storm Eagle into party mode and can cater for your next
function. When next you are looking for a special venue for that birthday party,
hen’s night, social club function or any other special occasion where you
are looking to enjoy that something different – think Mad Keen Fishing Charters.
We can supply food and beverage as required together with that special atmosphere
of cruising onboard this great boat.
"Mad Keen Fishing Charters blew the Strike & Hookers away. Congrats Ray and
the crew, best charter I’ve been on in seven years!! Nothing competes.
Won’t stop talking about this for months will communicate this to 102 members in
my online group called Big Reds – will tell anyone and everyone. Brett Oakley (Strike
& Hook) Group Big Reds Forum Owner."
"Mad Keen Fishing Charters were brilliant. Can’t wait to come back.
Nathan and Cookie were very helpful. Thanks Mark Newman"
Glenys, Once again I would like to thank you for a fantastic week.
We are all very impressed on your professionalism and hospitality. Very happy with
Tracy and her accommodation and great personality. We've been on a lot of charters
but you guys are number one. You can probably count on at least 20 bodies next year.
Some of the guys are talking about going back in May, I have spread the word and
put out some of your fridge magnets and I hope you do well. All the best, Brian.
You will be hearing from us again. Good luck.
A couple of weeks ago I went on your fishing boat on 3 days. I wanted to thank the
firm and especially Mark and Wal for 3 days of great fishing and great hospitality.
The two of them certainly looked after us. Some of the best fishing I have done
for some time. Thanks again, Allan Holman
Recentely myself,my fourteen year old son,five freinds and five other passengers
boarded the 50 ft Storm Eagle and departed at 6.30 am from Wallaroo marina.
The weather was perfect as we ventured several kilometers west towards Arno Bay.The
skipper and three deck hands were extremly professional and the boat was roomy and
comfortable.They were helpful and worked very hard for us to make sure we caught
plenty of fish and our hooks were always baited. Lunch was great and soft drinks
and water was redily available.We caught our quota of snapper and eagerly posed
for photos at the end of the day.In summary the feeling was unanimous that we all
had a great day and look foward to the next trip with Mad Keen Fishing Charters.

What do you give a man who has everything, for his 75th birthday? A trip on
Storm Eagle! It was the best present he could have hoped for, the weather
was perfect, the fishing was terrific and the crew on the boat were very helpful
and attentive. My father, my son and myself had a marvellous day and have not stopped
talking about it. Thank you Glenys for your help and friendliness in organising
our trip, also thank you to the crew on Storm Eagle on 20th March, you made dad's
birthday one he will not forget. Best wishes and kind regards Sam
I would just like to thank you and your crew for the great day I had on the
boat on the 20th March 2010. We all were lucky that we caught a lot
of fish but it is also important that we enjoy our day as well - the captain and
crew made our day just that. I am sure all that went that day feel the same. Yours

Dear Glenys Many thanks for the photos – they are already proudly my desktop screen
!!! I would like to thank Mad Keen and especially Ray the Skipper, and Jason
& Brodie, who were unbelievably helpful on the day – we wanted for
nothing This was my very first charter experience and the people at Mad Keen were
accommodating in every way to make this day special for me – I would have no hesitation
in going again and would highly recommend to anyone looking a wonderful day Once
again many thanks Tony Hill
We had a great day out. You couldn't get 3 more great blokes like the 3 you have.
There was no cavalier attitude or smart remarks. A very enjoyable day and very
professionally done, even though I didn,t catch one. Tell Ray we ate
some on the barbie, but after feeding us all day we had more for Sunday lunch and
the fins were great. Regards Mike and Derek
