Port Phillip Bay & Bass Strait Sport Fishing Charters
January - December
These Sport Fishing Charters are one of our most popular. The duration of these trips can be 5, 6, 8 or 10 hours. We generally run 5hr trips for individuals and small groups, as this is long enough to get a great feed of mixed bag Reef Fish still giving you the rest of the day free. If you think a longer trip would suit you better, get a group fishing charter together and we will plan your fishing charter to suit.
The Port Phillip Bay & Bass Strait charters work around the Bay, Port Phillip Heads & The Rip, going out into Bass Strait if the conditions permit. Regulations only allow us to traverse the Rip if swell conditions are below 2 metres and if the wind is 20 knots or less from the southerly sector. The fish we target on these charters is generally what is at its peak at the time. If it’s Snapper season, we will try our very best to put you onto them. The same applies for the mighty Kingfish which are in season from late January through till Easter, and if a Mako Shark comes sniffing around the burley trail, be assured we will try to get you a feed of fresh flake. If they don’t fire, we can always get you a good feed of the many other fish varieties Port Phillip Heads, The Rip & Bass Strait have on offer.
We can cater to the Individual, Corporate Groups, Church Groups, Fishing Clubs, Ladies Days, Bucks Days or any Social Club you may belong to. It doesn’t matter if you’re a complete novice or an accomplished angler, we cater for everyone.
You will be fishing aboard the Biggest Charter Boats in Victoria
Due South, a 60 foot Westcoaster Sportfish, or Strait Shooter, a 41 foot Steber Sportfish. Both vessels are skippered by professional Masters who have been fishing these waters all their lives, with experience second to none.
As with all of our Fishing Charters, prices are fully inclusive of fishing rods, bait & tackle, and we serve tea & coffee along with a sausage sizzle BBQ. If you charter one of our boats for 8 or 10 hours, we include hamburgers and salad also. All your fish will be cleaned and bagged ready to cook.
What to Bring: Warm clothes, hat, sunscreen, spray jacket, camera. Leave an esky in your car to keep your fish cool on the way home.
All anglers must have a current Victorian Fishing Licence if you’re over 18 and not a pensioner. They can be purchased online here
