Bumper day of Tuna action


Saturday 9th June, 2018



Yesterday we headed out with a group of anglers onboard, chasing Tuna off Port Fairy.

Once again the school sized Tuna were in abundance and another great day on the tuna was had.

We had multiple hook ups that made for a very exciting time on the water.

The boys were kept busy through the morning and managed to bag out before lunch. We continued to fish for the afternoon and successfully released a lot of Tuna before heading back to Port Fairy.

Perfect skies and sea conditions made for an enjoyable day. Everyone went home with good feeds of Tuna. 


Tuna Fishing Success


Saturday 2nd June 2018



On Saturday, joined by Peter and his workmates we headed out off Port Fairy in search of the Tuna action! We were not dissappointed and had a good day on the tuna.

Although the size were not large, there was plenty of action keeping all onboard busy. We only took what was wanted and the rest of the fish were returned to the water.

Good seas, favourable weather and good catches of fish made for a very enjoyable day on the water for all.

Easter on the water


Easter Weekend March 31 to April 2nd

Tuna and Reef Fishing

It was a bit of everything over Easter as we were kept busy with Charters - with Tuna and Reef both coming up with the goods.

There are still plenty of snapper around keeping everyone very busy. Both reef charters on Sunday caught many snapper and a few flathead - customers were very happy.


We also had a couple of Tuna Fishing Charters - there are some good size Tuna at the moment. We landed tuna to 37kg but also dropping fish a lot bigger.

As we approach what is known as Tuna season, it is the perfect time to secure a charter over the next few months.

Give Mary Ann a call on 0429983112 or 55983112 to secure a spot.

Enjoyable night on the sea


Overnight Fishing Charter

Saturday 24th - Sunday 25th March 2018


This weekend presented a bit of a juggling act with the weather for an Overnight Fishing Trip.

Saturday’s sea was perfect with calm seas and sunshine which was enjoyed by all on board. Making the most of the calm seas, we ventured out wide to target Deep Sea Species. Fishing was a bit  slow, but we still managed some nice Blue-Eye Trevalla, Blue Grenadier and Big eye Ocean Perch.

The thrill of the day was catching a 40kg Mako which was very acrobatic, jumping out of the water. Something fisherman Colin will not forget for a long time.

Knowing that the seas were going to cut up early Sunday, we decided to anchor up inshore to have a good night’s sleep. Before bed, the lads fished for awhile into the night, catching bait for the next day.

Up and at them Sunday morning after Breakfast the lads were not disappointed as the snapper came in thick and fast.

King Island Fishing Adventure doesn't disappoint!


King Island Adventure Fishing Charter - 3 day

8th-11th March 2018


Another fantastic adventure to King Island with a group of seven great blokes keen to fish off King Island.

We boarded the Southern Explorer in Port Fairy on Thursday evening and travelled overnight to the waters off King Island. The group were able to sleep the night away in our comfortable bunk rooms while we travelled.

1st Day Fishing -  saw us fishing out wide off the island, catching some more lovely Tassie Striped Trumpeter, School Shark and Gummy Shark, along with plenty of Jackass Morwong and Rock Cod.

Prior to anchoring up, the boys went for a dive and retrieved a solid crayfish. In the evening we anchored in Quarantine Bay for a relaxing time.

2nd Day Fishing - we headed off to our Flathead grounds and were rewarded with plenty of good Flathead. After lunch we headed out for some Snapper and on the way, we had a bit of fun with a large school of Salmon. Snapper were up to 54 cm along with big Rock Flathead. In the evening we anchored in sheltered waters off New Year Island and enjoyed the sunset along with some refreshing drinks.

While we were at King Island the weather was brilliant, fishing around the island made for a very special time.

We returned back to Port Fairy on Sunday afternoon. Everyone agreed that it had be a fantastic trip, with plenty of fish and good company!

Our Next King Island Fishing Charter is coming up in May. There are some spots available for our next four day trip to King Island : Departing Thursday 9pm 10th-14th May. Contact Mary Ann 0429983112 or 55983112 to find out more info and secure your place on board. you won't be disappointed!
