Snapper Fishing Charters Melbourne Bring on November Reds Book Now!

Hi there Reel Time Customers and friends, how are you all, Port Phillip Bay Snapper Fishing is set to go with a slow but sure start for October 2017 it's shaping up to be exactly like last year, with water temperature & timing being very similar, it's very much in the hands of the fish gods when we are waiting for nature to deliver perfect conditions so that the Snapper can migrate and do their thing.

We are only a few days away from being 17 degrees and this is prime time for the snapper to filter in to Port Phillip Bay and start showing up in more areas making it easier to locate them, atm the fishing is better in the northern parts of Port Phillip Bay with the fish naturally starting to move south and spread out on a feeding frenzy.

With that said we have had some great catches of Snapper during October but allot of miles and effort has been put in by the Reel Time Team.

Here are some of the highlights of October 2017 Snapper Fishing Charters in Port Phillip Bay.

Catch of the Month on Reel Time Fishing Charters.

Thresher Sharks Port Phillip Bay

The full Tail of a freak catch in Port Phillip Bay fishing for Snapper of Black Rock.
 
The decision to move shallow into the reef system off block rock paid dividends yesterday. We were ticking away nicely catching some pinkies and salmon when the customer's snatcher buckled and took off under the boat. There was a big splash on the opposite side of the boat that I didn't get to see but automatically presumed that a seal had grabbed his prized snapper. There was an 8 yr old kid on board who yelled out "THRESHER SHARK, THRESHER SHARK" and my decky and I Daniel Bateman just looked at each other and tried not to laugh.
 
A few seconds later it jumped back on the other side of the boat again and this time I saw it was a thresher and yelled "IT IS A #*$#ING THRESHER" it then charged the boat again and this time tangled most of the rods in the water. After putting on a great aerial display and Chris crossing all over the place, it finally got us on the prop. Lifted motors and grabbed the mainline and to our surprise, it was still there.
 
Bateman passed me the line and said it's time for you to do your Donny Mako special and handline him in. Well, challenged accepted and after some close calls we had him to the boat and a great gaff shot seen the thresher come into the boat and dealt with. Everyone took turns taking pics and then quickly gutted and bled to ensure the fish didn't go to waste and the happy customers all got to take home some quality fillets.
 
It was weighed at launching way and it tipped the scales at 22kg gutted so the fish was called for 25kg.
A great day for the lucky angler as we all know how rare a capture like this is. Many are hooked and lost but we were very lucky to land this great fish.

Vanuatu Live Aboard with Nambas Fishing Charters 2017

Well, Matt Cini took advantage of a well-deserved Fishing Charter opportunity before our Melbourne Snapper Fishing Charters really heat up!

Matt had the luxury to meet Russ and Laura of Nambas Fishing Charters 2 years ago in Vanuatu and join them on there humble beginnings to running such an outstanding fishing charter operation in such a remote place with an abundance of fishing life that never seems to end, with Marlin, Yellow Fin, Dog Tooth Tuna, Big Gts, Wahoo, Sail Fish to name just a few.

Matt was happy to share his knowledge in starting a fishing charter company with them as both Russ and Laura have such fishing knowledge passed down to them and being locals of there waters and well respected it was only a matter of time before Russ was able to acquire the correct vessel to not only do the normal day trips from Port Havannah but to know conducting liveaboard trips, to such remote island with endless fishing to be had, spectacular views, that you have to see to believe.

here are some of the images from Matt Cini's last trip to Vanuatu with Nambas Fishing Charters below.
