Get hooked and head out into Port Phillip Heads for some action and adventure onboard a Sports Fisher. Enjoy a fun full day out on the water and prepare yourself for the challenge, as you try to catch big snapper, salmon, Bass Strait flathead, and sharks such as mako, thresher and gummies.
On the morning of your sport fishing trip, you'll arrive at Queenscliff in eager anticipation of your day on the water and you'll be met and welcomed aboard by a friendly and knowledgeable skipper. Once onboard, your skipper will instruct the crew to bring in the ropes and from there your fishing journey starts. As you head off to Port Phillip Heads, hugging the picturesque coastline, you'll be given a briefing on the water, the areas you will be fishing and the types of fish you could expect to catch. On all game/sport trips the provider endeavours to get out into Bass Strait, however, the weather has a big influence on charters.
As the boat reaches its first destination, you will be issued with your rod and reel and any of your questions on how to catch that big one will be answered by one of the helpful staff members. You will also be given instructions on baiting, how to feel for bites and what fish are in the area. Don't worry, if you aren't keen to bait your own hook, the skipper and crew are on hand to help where needed. After that, it's time to drop your line overboard. To make your fishing experience easier, they also have GPS and fish finding technology onboard to help locate where the big ones might be hiding! Any legal-sized fish you catch will be cleaned, filleted and bagged for you, ready to take home. ready to take home and impress family and friends.
