Best Fishing Charters in Victoria

We’ve been providing professional fishing charters to people living in Victoria, Australia as well as tourists to this great fishing state of ours for over 10 years.

If you want a group or private fishing tour, you’ve come to the right place. We’re privately owned and our aim is to give you the best value fishing experience in Melbourne and Victoria.

Where we are fishing right now

It’s peak Snapper season between October and December, so we’re doing charters three times daily targeting fish in Port Phillip Bay. Read up on our Snapper Fishing Charters and get out on the water before it’s too late! Check out this video below

Not Quantity, but Quality Fishing Tours

The Bag Out Difference

Some operators cram 20 people on their boats and you’re just another number on any other day. We never have more than 10 and as low as 6 on our deep sea offshore charters (Tuna and Shark)

Steve is one of the pioneers of the fishing charter industry in Victoria and he owns and operates Bagout Charters.

His crew are focused on making sure you return safely whilst also doing whatever it takes to give you the best chance of bagging that fish you’ve come for.

Remember, all our charters are weather dependent. If it’s too windy or rough, we might have to cancel your charter. Your safety is essential, but also, no one is going to enjoy really rough conditions anyway. We don’t rope you into booking a charter unless there’s reasonably good conditions for fishing.

Have a laugh and fun. Experience the true blue Aussie sense of humour and your almost guaranteed a great day on the water. The best fishing charters are about more than just standing on a boat fishing, they are about spending time with good friends, in the outdoors, having a laugh, a drink or two and enjoying the thrill of the hunt.

High Fish Strike Rate

We’d love to guarantee that you’ll catch something every time, after all it’s called ‘fishing’ for a reason, but with that said, we aim to do everything we can to go that extra strep to maximise your chances. We’ll try different hot spots, increase the berley trail, mix up the bait, try some soft plastics or lures and more. With that said, it’s pretty rare that we come back to port empty handed.

Fishing Trips in Sync with the Seasons

There’s quite a few other operators out there who will take you on the water whenever you want, in whatever conditions. Our big difference is that we only operate when the conditions are just right. During the winter months, we run fewer trips and avoid venturing out in turbulent weather.

There’s nothing worse than being ripped off by a dodgy operator. If you’re going to spend your hard-earned money with us we are going to ensure that we do everything in our power to deliver. No skimping on fuel, no skimping on gear or bait. You get a proper stint on the water and we’re not happy until you catch something or laugh trying.

By following the natural seasonal migration of fish and combining this with local experience we maximise your fish catching opportunities. Note: we port at three different places throughout the year. Carrum (South East Melbourne), Stoney Point (ease side of Mornington Peninsula) and Portland (far South West Victoria)

Our fishing trips range from 5 hour guided snapper tours in Port Phillip Bay which surrounds Melbourne during late Spring to full day deep sea charters in Portland chasing Southern Bluefin Tuna, one of the best sport fish in the world. The December to March period will see us relocate to Westernport on the Mornington Peninsula where we fish the Bass Strait and Westernport Bay areas which are great for shark fishing, whiting, snapper and squid.
