Reel Time Fishing Charters

Fishing Charters in Melbourne its a Merry X Mas and happy new year!

Hi there Reel Time Customers and friends, First of all, I would like to thank everybody who joined us in Snapper season Oct to Dec departing Melbourne Snapper Fishing Charters from Launching way Carrum 

without you all, we wouldn't be able to bring to Melbourne what we love to do Snapper Fishing, as it takes so much time and effort being on the water day in day out, we love nothing more than finding and getting people from all over onto our prized catch here in Melbourne.

We now move onto the next chapter in Melbournes pristine waters to target a larger variety of species in various locations.

Wishing you all a safe and merry X mas, and a happy new year from the whole Reel Time Team.

What's biting now in Port Phillip Bay - Westernport Bay

Snapper in Port Phillip Bay

Well, a fishing report for the fisherman, Snapper in Port Philip Bay have definitely made there way south and we are seeing better fishing from Carrum all the way down to Mt Martha, perfect timing for Reel Time as we also head south.

As far as bait goes the best bait has been concerned the humble pilchard has been without a doubt the most consistent, with fresh squid doing very good also. 

I suggest getting out first light and or a tide change to target Snapper in the warmer months with some patience plenty of Burley and making sure that you mark at least 1 or 2 god fish and anchor correctly, the next few months are great fishing down south for big numbers of smaller fish and with the patience of searching for those big marks on your sounder and sitting to get some quality fish along the channel edge from Frankston to Mt Martha.

Squid Fishing in Port Phillip Bay

The Squid Fishing on the Mornington Peninsula is going really well with most areas producing Squid, I haven't done allot of Squid Fishing but in the few times we did it didn't take long to get our bag with the size of the fish being around 300g to 1 KG for the bigger fish Portsea has been good.

Most weed and sand patches from Martha Cove to Sorrento will produce using a size 3.0 squid jig weighted with a sinker dropper will do the trick with my favs the red foils always producing.

Port Phillip Bay Whiting and Bluespot Flathead

well this is starting in Jan and I can't wait for its so much fun targeting these two species especially the massive Blue Spot Flathead that fight so hard and the key here is finding the weed and sand holes that are exactly on the edge of where the current changes speed, dusk, and dawn are always the best in Southern Port Phillip Bay, with a burley bucket with our famous Prawn and Pilchard Burley Pallets mixed with crushed Pilchard and Mussels and Squid being the preferred bait! 

Westernport Whiting

Westernport has fired up big time and we are heading there this week to start doing charters seriously so stay tuned for our updated Pics and reports on our Facebook Page I don't have much to report here as I am doing my first trip tomorrow, but with what I can see on Facebook my friends and reputable fisherman are doing very very well with Whiting to 49cm in big numbers this is exciting as they are one of my favourite fish to catch.
