Welcome to Faust Dam Fishing Charters

The proprietor of Faust Dam Fishing Charters, Colin Slade, has always been a keen fisherman. He moved to the area in 2003 from the Hunter Valley, NSW. Colin has been operating barramundi fishing charters for over 10 years.

Renown for professional and TV personalities chasing those trophy barramundi, Peter Faust Dam is 25 km west of the township of Proserpine and is serviced by a local commercial airport for quick access. (1hour 20 mins from Brisbane).

Colin lives a stone's throw from the dam so considers it his back yard. He knows where the barramundi move through the seasons and climatic conditions

What better way to capture the metre plus barramundi, or sooty than under the guidance of Colin and the comfort of his great rig. Charters are for up to 6 hours pickup and delivery available.
