Shark fishing trips may be arranged between December and April where we target:
Blue and Bronze Whalers
Snapper, Tiger Flathead, Barracouta, Squid and Gummies are frequently encountered whilst berleying for sharks.
Although Snapper can be caught all year round in Bass Strait, by far the most productive times are Spring and Autumn for larger species (4-10kg), and Summer months for smaller Pinky Snapper.
Gummy Sharks are also targeted while fishing for Snapper.
Catch fish like Snapper, Gummy, School and Seven Gill Sharks.
Yellowtail Kingfish, King George Whiting, Trevally, Salmon, Calamari, Pike and Flathead are targeted at various times throughout the season.
When fishing the shallow inshore reefs we carry a range of soft plastics for those interested in the challenge of lure fishing.
Southern Blue Fin Tuna are targeted from Portland in the months of May and June. Different prices apply for Tuna fishing, please ring to enquire.
Quality is our top priority and to ensure this we only use top of the range rods and reels - Shimano and Penn.
We have a wide range of rods and reels to suit every situation - from light 3kg spinning outfits to 37kg Shimano Tiagras for sharks and gamefish.
