justagirl is a 7.3 Hard Top Bar Crusher Boat skippered by Tracey Tito
Where it all Began
Justagirls’ public history began in May 2014 even though Tracey and Ren had been fishing for well over 35 years. Skipper Tracey was diagnosed late 2013 with Kidney Cancer. Her personal Facebook page was reduced from 700 to 60 at this time, being close friends and family only, so they could be kept up to date with her progress.
Local fishing friends still wanted to know what was happening in their fishing lives and requests after surgery and recovery got out of hand. It was decided on a trip to Port MacDonnell chasing 100kg+ Tuna in May 2014 that they should create a justagirl Facebook page.
Justagirl Facebook community is now in excess of 19,500 likes and has taken Tracey & Ren both by surprise. Their passion has the
page growing weekly. Needless to say Cancer is a big wake up
call and life is now about enjoying, not just living.
They have developed their own range of justagirl shirts and singlets with other merchandise currently under development.

Our vision is to fish Australia wide onboard ‘justagirl”, share our stories, involve the general public and greater fishing community in our fishing trips.
We plan to help woman to discover courage through fishing and boating. We want to create a group of like minded chicks Australia wide and empower them to take the boat, to go fishing off the beach, to take the kids to the jetty and catch a feed.
Next season we are hoping there will be 3 justagirl Crews and in 2021 a ladies Tuna Comp is South Australia would be the dream. Put your hand up girls and come join us, let’s go fishing!!!
