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.
The Sport Fishing Tour is great for:
- Individuals and small groups
- Business Teambuilding Groups
- Community and Social Groups, Church Groups
- Fishing Clubs and Experienced Anglers
- Ladies Days, Hens and Bucks Days
Do I need to be experienced?
No, we will cater your experience dependant on your level of comfort and what you want to get out of the day. We can cater a unique and memorable experience for everyone.
What's the charter boat like?
You're in for a treat, your fishing charter will be aboard the Biggest Charter Boats in Victoria. Due South is a 60 foot Westcoaster Sportfish, our other boat, Strait Shooter, is a 41 foot Steber Sportfish. Both of these vessels are new and skippered by professional Masters who have been fishing these waters for their entire lives, with experience second to none.
What's included in the day?
All of our Fishing Charters are fully inclusive of GST, top of the line fishing rods, all the bait and tackle you'll need to catch an impressive haul, and tea and coffee along with a sausage sizzle BBQ. If you charter one of our boats for an 8 or 10 hour tour, we include hamburgers and salad also. All your fish will be cleaned and bagged, ready for you to take home and cook.
What to Bring:
We recommend warm clothes, a hat or beanie, sunscreen, spray jacket, camera and an esky ready in your car to keep your fish cool on your 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.
