Southern Coast Charters targets Blue-Eye Trevella, Hapuka, Pink Ling, Big Eye Ocean Perch and Gem Fish on our deep sea fishing trips off Warrnambool and Port Fairy. Big Flathead, Morwong, Jackass Fish and Flying Gurnard are also caught on our way out. There are also many other varieties of fish that can be caught – you just never know what you’re going to catch aboard our charters.

Electric reels, rods and bait is supplied on our trips. We fish down to 1000 metres using electric reels, combined with bent butt game rods, making it much more enjoyable to retrieve your catch.

All rods, tackjle and bait is supplied, as well as lunch, morning and afternoon tea. Tea, Coffee and water is also available on our Deep Sea Fishing Charters.

Deep Sea Fishing Activities

While on the way to the Continental Shelf we could anchor up and fish in about 180m of water and catch big flathead, red gurnard, morwong, gummy shark, magpie perch and many more using overhead reels.

A bit further out, we anchor up in water ranging from 400m up to 1000m. For a lot of the Deep Sea fishing we use standard reef rigs with the addition of a flashing light to attract the fish.

Out here we could catch blue eye trevalla, harpuka, gemfish and Pink Ling.
