Snapper season 2018 in Port Phillip Bay is underway in Melbourne!!!

Well hi there Reel Time friends and customers, its been a very trying and hard start in Port Phillip Bay this snapper season, with the ocean currents bringing cooler than normal water temps to our southern waters here in Melbournes Port Phillip Bay, thus making it extremely hard to get the very big snapper that is in the port to feed daily, along with that the very good weather bringing the unfavourable north and east winds, we love to see these big westerly and heavy rain early season to get the warm fresh runoff nutrient-rich water running into Port Phillip Bay, along with the warm northerly winds than a nice westerly to stir things up, with that an accelerated ocean current, making for excellent early season snapper fishing.

Matt Cini and the Team have worked extremely hard and with that said have still managed some cracking fish for October 2018 as you can see here in our updated Photo Gallery.

However, with all that said late October, the water temp hit that magical mark and all the fish that we have been seeing are now starting to feed with vengeance, it seems that most charters are now seeing plenty of and the size of the fish is an average of 4 to 5 Kgs, providing rod buckles and screaming reels, for our Reel Time Customers, its always a great sight for both the customers and the skippers to see fish coming in, we all understand fishing has some major factors for it all to line up, Melbourne once again producing the goods for us to enjoy a sport that has the thrill that all people want to experience at least once in their life, some become addicted and make it their life, fishing is a part of life both hunting and providing fresh fish for the table as it such a great source of goodness and can be enjoyed by all.

looks Like November and December are set to explode so if you have been holding back, wait no longer take a look at our FaceBook Page and see the large numbers of snapper coming in now, if your not snapper fishing now than you never will.

Snapper Fishing Charters Martha Cove Jan to April 2018

Well even though we are in full swing of the Carrum annual snapper season in Port Phillip Bay 2018 its not long now until we head to Martha Cove on the Mornington Peninsula and start chasing the Southern Port Phillip Bay Reds, last year was a Bumper season for the boys while Matt was doing King Fish it was nothing for the boys to experience some of the best snapper fishing they had ever seen, with the luxury of not too many boats and calm seas the fish down south sure did play the game, although the fish where not your normal 4 to 6 kg models they where the most amazing eating size from 1 kg to 3 kg in huge numbers, it was lovely to keep the holiday people enjoying the peninsula with great snapper action with the school holiday and families and kids coming from everywhere to experience a bag of snapper and than even most days chasing squid and having such a variety of seafood to take home and enjoy while on holidays.

Here is a link to our Snapper Fishing Charters departing Martha Cove from Jan to April 2019 be sure to try your luck with Marco and Bruno and catch your dream snapper.
