Slow day of Fishing


Saturday 17th June

Tuna Fishing Charter


Last Saturday we headed out with a group in search of Tuna. Michael had booked the charter and was bringing along his father, who was formaly a charter operator in New Zealand. We had favorable weather conditions which made for a pleasant day in the water.

The Tuna made us work hard and whilst we could see signs of them, we had very little luck managing to hook one. We finished the day with just one school sized Tuna, caught by Michael. His father on the other hand spent most of the day in the wheelhouse with Captain Barry, chatting all things boats and fishing.


Unfortunatley we are in for a wild and windy weekend on the sea - so we will not be running any charters this weekend (24th-25th June) there are more booked in on coming weekends so give Mary Ann a call to book a place 0429983112



A weekend of Tuna Fishing


Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th June 2017

Tuna Fishing Charters


Last weekend we had two full days of Tuna Fishing booked in and we had everything crossed for good weather. Thankfully we were able to head out both days and catch some fish.

Saturday we had calm seas and after a fresh start the sun shone down on us. Onboard we had a group of men eager to land some Tuna. Whilst we had to work mighty hard to get onto them, come the end of the day everyone on board had landed a good school sized Tuna and headed home with a future feed of Tuna!

Sunday the seas weren't quite so kind to us and whilst they weren't wild and we were able to go ahead, there was a bit of chop that caused some people on board to get Sea Sick. We had a family of 4 tourists and a second group of 2 from Ballarat. Again the Tuna made us work for them, but everyone went home happy after each group on board landed 2 Tuna.

We were pleased to receive an email the next day from the family who got a little unwell, thanking us for the day and saying how much they enjoyed! Obviously catching fish outweighed the shaky sea legs.

Thank you all for joining us on your Tuna Fishing Charters, we hope you enjoyed yourselves and cook up some lovely Tuna dishes!

A hard earned catch of Tuna


Sunday 4th June 2017

Tuna Fishing Charter


On Sunday, with a frosty morning start, we headed out to catch some Tuna off Port Fairy. We managed one early hook up  but from then on we had to work a little harder.

At midday we still hadn't managed to get another hook up but with a bit more perservance we got onto another school and soon had the numbers to satisfy our group.

For most on board it was their first Tuna experience and all left happy after they had caught atleast one Tuna each.


The group enjoyed their trip back to the wharf, sitting in the warm cabin - on our comfortable lounges enjoying a quiet drink. The perfect way to end a successful days fishing!


Bluefin Tuna Delight


Saturday 3rd June

Tuna Fishing Charter


On Saturday we had a group of 12 on board for a Tuna Fishing experience. We were treated to a day of sunshine and calm seas which made for an enjoyable day for all.

We headed out towards the shelf on the hunt for some bird action. The Tuna made us work hard for them and eventually we managed to hook up and land a couple of school sized Bluefin tuna. 

We headed West towards Portland on our search and managed a 5 way hook up! Lots of action for all on board. Whilst we didn't manage to find a 'barrell tuna' as the customers had hoped - we finished the day with 9 Bluefin Tuna, meaning a good feed for all on board and happy customers non the less.

Its the hope for lots of anglers to land a 'barrell' and hey we'd love to land one too, but the truth is that you just never know when one is going to come through and take your lure. There are no guarantees and it really is luck that plays a huge part in it! Don't let that deter you though - as the saying goes 'you've gotta be in it to win it' - so why not join us for a Tuna fishing charter - you never know what might take your line!

A Sunday on the water delivered the Tuna!


Sunday 21st May 2017

Tuna Fishing Charter


On Sunday we headed out Tuna Fishing with a group from Melbourne. We had a good day on the water with good sea conditions, which was ideal for Tuna fishing.

We travelled out towards the shelf and it wasn't long before the boys were busy reeling in Tuna.

The boys took home a good feed of Tuna between them.

Sunday also happened to be Jason our Deckies' birthday and he enjoyed it with a day on the water, along with Deckie Ian’s company.

Now is the perfect time for Tuna Fishing! give Mary Ann a call to book your charter on 0429 983 112 or 55983112
