How to maximise your fishing package at Gills Fishing Pond?

Come at the right time, at the right price!
The best package to take based on their current promotion is definitely the 9pm to 6am (next day) promotion at $60. This is 9 hours at $60 which amounts to $6.70 hourly (cheaper than prawning!). Gills allows you to "keep the hours" and requires that you top up a minimum of 1 hour ($30) when you want to redeem your remaining hours.

The best time to fish would of course be the timings where they release fish. It's a pretty small, contained pond so not much retained fish from previous releases will linger for long. Here's a quick guide on how to utilise* the hours for the 9pm to 6am promotion.

Total hours: 11, Total spend: $120 (additional 2 hours x $30)
1st trip: 9pm to 1am (total 4 hours utilised); 10pm and 12am fish release
2nd trip: 9pm to 1am (total 3 hours utilise + 1 hour top up); 10pm and 12am fish release
3rd trip: 10pm to 1am (total 2 hours utilise + 1 hour top up); 10pm and 12am fish release

Of course, you can spend 9 hours at the pond straight but if not, one has to buy a minimum of 1 additional hour at $30 to utilise the remaining hours. If you break up your hours like the above example, that will mean you spend $120 in total and secure 6 net release opportunities.

This means that to break even, you will need to land a total of 8 fishes for all 3 sessions (About 2 fish per session which isn't difficult since each session has 2 net releases). Factor in that each piece is probably 1kg and each live fish cost price is at $15/kg estimated (this is the usual snapper, barramundi etc.) Gaos are are worth more and a live hybrid probably weighs in at $20-$30/kg estimated from the farm.
  • 8 fishes x $15 = $120 (you have broke even)
  • 10 fishes x $15 = $150 (you're definitely getting your money back) 
*Utilise within 2 weeks. Multiple visits are ok.
