Get hooked and head out into Port Phillip Heads for some action and adventure onboard our Sports Fisher. Join us for 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, Sharks such as Mako, Thresher, Gummies and more!
On the morning of your sport fishing trip, youll arrive at Sorrento in eager anticipation of your day on the water and youll be met and welcomed aboard by our 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 we head off to Port Phillip Heads, hugging the picturesque coastline, youll 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 our Game/Sport trips we endeavour to get out into Bass Strait, however, the weather has a big influence on our charters, and obviously we cannot control what the Weather Gods throw at us! We tend to run charters in rain or wet conditions, however, as a general rule, we do not proceed in wind conditions above 25 knots, in that case we have an alternative trip fishing in Port Phillip Bay when possible, so the locations you will fish on the day will depend on the prevailing weather and tides. 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 our helpful staff. You will also be given instructions on baiting, how to feel for bites and what fish are in the area. Dont worry, if you arent keen to bait your own hook, the skipper and crew are on hand to help where needed. After that, its time to drop your line overboard. To make your fishing experience easier, we also have GPS and fish finding technology onboard to help us 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 and impress family and friends. Please Note: You must have a current recreational fishing licence. These can be purchased online from the Dept of Primary Industries.
