5hr Reef Fishing Charter delivers a good feed


5 hour Reef Fishing Charter

Thursday 18th and Sunday 21st January 2018

The last 2 trips have seen some good Snapper up to 42cm and topped up with sizeable Flathead - which will keep everyone fed for some time to come - homemade fish and chips - yummo!

Sea conditions were good on 18th but were more trying on 21st with a South-Easterly blowing, but improved as the day progressed.

On Thursday birthday girl Karen celebrated with plenty of fish caught, showing the boys how its done.


A great morning on the water


11th January 2018

5hr Reef Fishing Charter


On Thursday we made the most fo the nice calm weather and headed out on a morning 5 hour Reef Fishing Charter exploring the reefs closer to Port Fairy. There were 3 father and son couples, along with Tom getting away for a well earned break who boarded Southern Explorer for an enjoyable mornings fish.

With good seas,we had a great morning on the flathead which was backed up with snapper earlier.

The boys are going to enjoy fish for awhile.

Nice Mako to round out Full Day Reef Fishing Charter


Monday 8th January, 2018

8hr Reef Fishing Charter


With clear skies and good seas, we headed out for an offshore reef fishing trip. A full day charter allows us to head out and explore the deeper reefs off Port Fairy. It also allows us to take some time to target shark.

With a group onboard we set about fishing and whilst we had to work hard to find the fish, we managed to land Snapper, Morwong, plenty of Couta and a fine 30 kg Mako to round out the day. Landing the Mako was made more difficult as we were unable to run shark lines for a fair part of the day due to a seal hanging around the boat! 


Half Day Reef Fishing Adventures


5th & 6th January

5hr reef fishing Charters

We have had many very friendly groups over the Christmas period and it has been lovely meeting new faces and having them on board for some reef fishing. These groups have caught good numbers of snapper and flathead, making our job very enjoyable.

We were very happy to welcome back Raymond & his family and Mark’s Group  for the 3rd time.

Even though the land temperature was 41 degrees today, it was a bit cooler on the water, with a strong northerly wind and we all enjoyed our time fishing and catching an assortment of Snapper and flathead.
