Dream day on the Water


Half Day Reef Fishing Charter

13th December 2017

Fishing Charters are not limited to weekends, if you happen to have some time through the week, the conditions are often perfect to ehad out on the water.

Yesterday we headed out on a half day reef fishing charter off Port Fairy with a mixed group of fisherpeople! The day did not disappoint and was one of those days that fisherman dream of!

We fished the morning away and bagged out on good pan sized Snapper. For some it was their first ever fish they had caught, and caused much delight. Memories were certainly made, and full tummies to come as they eat through their catch. The group all left happy with their catch - with almost 60 fish caught for the day (some were released)

With the sun shining down and flat seas, what more could anyone ask for?

If you are keen to fill your plate with fresh Snapper, join us for a Reef Fishing Charter! Give Mary Ann a call on 0429983112 or 55983112

Snapper on the bite = happy fisherman

5 Hour Reef Fishng Charter


After a warm few days and with another nice morning forecast ahead of the rain, we headed out with a group of eager fishermen and their carers for a 5 hour reef fishing charter. We explored the shallower reefs closer to Port Fairy and with the sea warming up there are more snapper moving into shallower waters.

This made for a very relaxcing and exciting morning for all on board as they caught many Snapper. Good pan size snapper was caught with one double header.

The sea was perfect for the group and they returned to shore very satisfied with their mornings efforts. No doubt Snapper was on the menu last night!


Overnight fishing success


Overnight Fishing Charter

Sunday 5th November 2017


Keen to get some mates together and spend some time fishing and catching up? Then an overnight fishing charter is a great idea and thats exactly what the group of 6 mates from Melbourne did on Sunday-Monday!


With a great bunch of blokes we headed off from Port Fairy on Sunday morning and had an enjoyable couple of days on the water, spending overnight in a sheltered area.


With a South Easterly blowing, it made fishing very hard, although we did catch some very good fish, including Snapper, Rock Cod and a fine specimen of Rock Flathead.


The boys enjoying the roe cooked up in the evening, along with a hot meal that Mary Ann had supplied us & a glass or 2 of wine. Everyone slept well in our bunk rooms and was up to enjoy some more fishing on Monday morning.


It was also Decky Ian’s birthday and all devoured the cake whipped up by MaryAnn.


Full day on the sea delivers the goods

Full Day Reef Fishing Charter


On Sunday we headed out for a full day of Reef Fishing. A full day charter allows us to head out deeper and explore the deeper reefs off Port Fairy & target some shark as well.

The deeper reefs are still producing good fish. We landed  Snapper to 53 cm, Gummies to 16 kg and some handy Nannygai. Providing lots of enjoyment for our group on board.

One unfortunate thing was one of the  gummies was full of pups, which were not far off being born naturally as they were very active, we managed to place all the pups into a bucket of sea water and release them into the ocean. They all swam off when released and we hope most of them made it safely back to the bottom. We were also disappointed to find that the Gummie Shark had picked up some litter and the contents of its stomach revealed an organge plastic netting. This certainly highlights the importance of fishing safely and not using things like orange netting to burley up.

Pinkies on the bite for Bucks Party

Half Day Reef Fishing Charter

On Saturday we headed out for a 5 hour reef fishing charter to celebrate the upcoming nuptuals of Adrian. Although the sea was not perfect Adrian and his Bucks Party mates had a good time on the water.

We hooked onto many snapper and although they were not big they kept the boys entertained.

We also snagged a Sea Gull which we had to retrieve after it became tangled in one of the lines.

Thanks for joining us for your Bucks Party guys and best wishes for your upcoming wedding.
