New Bar Crusher for Castaway Estuary Fishing Charters

POPULAR Port Macquarie based estuary lure fishing charter business, Castaway Estuary Fishing Charters, recently took delivery of a new boat: a custom-built, plate aluminium, 2023 Bar Crusher 535XS centre console Fishing Weapon! 

Powered by a Yamaha 90hp outboard, the Castaway Bar Crusher is also fitted with a bow-mount Watersnake Geo Spot electric motor for sneaking around over shallow sandflats, working along deep river banks, and holding position near likely-looking structure. 

“The Castaway Crusher is purpose-built for lure fishing, featuring an open layout with a forward casting deck and ample casting space. It also features Bar Crusher’s innovative water ballast system, QuickFlow, for excellent stability at rest. Castaway is fitted with a Garmin Echomap Ultra 125SV 12in display mounted on the console and I’ll be adding another Garmin Echomap Ultra 125SV display mounted on the foredeck very soon,” Castaway guide, Patrick Linehan, said. 

“I wanted a charter boat that is nimble, with enough draft to fish knee-deep flats and oyster leases and can access the furthest tidal reaches of our Mid North Coast bass rivers. I also wanted a boat that’s capable of handling the regions notorious bar crossings for inshore and offshore fishing in my own time… After recently doing both – I’m not dreaming! 

“Most importantly, the new boat is safe and comfortable for our loyal Castaway clients,” Patrick said.
