Similar to the Westernport charter we leave from Stoney Point Boat Ramp (at the end of Crib Point) and travel south, past Phillip island and into the Bass Strait. Here in the deeper water the range of deep sea fish increases substantially and we can target the massive Mako Shark.
We target five main shark species: Mako Shark, Bronze Whalers, Threshers, 7 Gill Sharks and Gummy Shark. However while we are in the area we also bottom fish for other fish species including Pinkie Snapper, Tiger Flathead, Barracuda, Salmon, Squid & lots of bait fish.
Fishing for sharks can be both thrilling, exciting and strenuous due to their size and fighting instincts.
After the brunt of the Snapper season in Port Phillip Bay finishes in December we move the boat to Crib Point which gives us access to the Mornington Penisula waterway region. We are here from late December until March each year until the Portland tuna season starts in April.
This charter is a full day charter due to the distance that needs to be travelled to get to the secret fishing spots that we know.
This shark fishing charter is for a maximum of 6 people. You can book the whole boat for $1800 which ends up being a better deal. We run these charters at the same time as the Westernport charter as the boat leaves from the same place at Stoney Point/Cribb Point on the Peninsula.
