Skip (Tracey Tito) is the Skipper of SA’s only all-female offshore competitive fishing crew.

Skip’s trips have taken over 90 women on adventures around Australia catching fish.

Her vision is to empower women to take the boat and go fishing. Not only does she encourage women to learn all things fishing, but she also builds women’s confidence to take on life’s challenges with newfound inner strength.

She is also the producer and editor of Australia’s first and only female fishing TV series Get Hooked with Team Justagirl, and recently the newly added series called “A fishing trip with Skip to ……..”

She loves co-ordinating events that bring the fishing community together. In 2021 her first major event, the Club Marine SA Boat and Fishing Show, was a resounding success.

Tracey grew up in New Zealand and has been an angler from a young age.

Our Mission

If you thought Fishing Trips with Skip were just fishing trips – you would be wrong!
This is a story of how women have found themselves.

Women face challenges every day and step outside their comfort zone to find courage.

  • The courage to become selfish and stand on their own.
  • The courage to find their passion and put themselves first.
  • The courage to discover the next stage of their lives now their family has grown up – to become more than mum, or the wife, to become ME!

After being diagnosed with cancer in 2014, Skip (Tracey) wanted to change her life, she sold her financial planning business of 28 years and decided to dedicate her spare time to fishing – a passion she has always had.

After recovering from her illness, fishing became her reason to live. She wanted to find other like-minded women to fish with and that’s how Team Justagirl was created. Tracey and her daughter Ren, had a vision for Team Justagirl. It was about empowering woman to “Take the Boat” and learn all they can. To find courage to do something they didn’t think possible and use that courage to empower all areas of their life. To believe in themselves!

We inspire woman to find their passion, and no matter how insane, action it.

We aim to excite, motivate, and encourage women to go fishing and ignite a passion!

Fishing is not just catching fish, it is far more outreaching, it provides a means for self-empowerment for all.

Imagine this: Fishing offshore, no land in sight, a four-metre swell, dodging seals, dolphins and whales. Hooking up a tuna, reeling for what feels like hours, finding strength you didn’t know you have – and then the celebration!

The perfect recipe for personal growth.

Our Vision

  • Break the cycle of fishing traditions being passed down only through men

  • Empower women to travel from the beach, to the boat, to the boardroom

  • Inspire women to find grace, strength and fearlessness through fishing
