I'm Hooked Fishing Charters

Explore Mornington Peninsula with I’m Hooked Fishing Charters! Operated by an experienced guide, Captain Mal, you can spend an amazing day on the water, catching delicious fish. The captain usually departs from Carrum but he covers a wide area with his trips. You can stay in the Port Phillip Bay, visit the nearby Western Port Bay, small seaside town Flinders, or go offshore to Bass Straight for amazing Shark fishing.

You’ll be fishing on a stable 22’ DevilCat catamaran. Bay and nearshore trips accommodate up to 9 guests but only 6 guests can join for an offshore trip. The boat has top-notch navigational equipment, she’s powered by twin 150 HP Mercury engines, has trolling equipment, a toilet, and easy access for disabled.

Depending on your fishing grounds, your possible catch will vary. Captain Mal specializes in catching Pink Snapper and it’s probably the most popular target on any trip. You can also go after Mako and Gummy Shark, Wrasse, Flathead, King George Whiting, Flathead, Tuna, and more. With so many different fish, there’s also lots of techniques you can use to catch them, so the action always brings something new.

You’ll be provided with Daiwa and Penn rods and reels and a variety of lures. You’ll have fresh water on the boat but you can always bring other beverages and snacks. Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license!

The area around the Mornington Peninsula always delivered great fishing action. To get the most out of this fishing haven, take a trip with I’m Hooked Fishing Charters!

Mal began fishing at a very young age with his Grandpa. Mal would fish at Carrum while his Grandpa collected boat launching fees. His dad would also take him to local creeks to catch bream and mullet. Mal's journeys have taken him up the coast where he lived in Merimbula where he started fishing from Eden to Tathra catching his first Marlin off the coast.
