Online Fishing Charters - Checkmate

Launching Way
Carrum VI, Australia

Online Fishing Charters do everything they can to make your day enjoyable, and to send you home with some fish at the end of the day. They have been fishing the waters around Melbourne for many years, and know all the areas that hold whichever fish you are looking to catch.

Online Fishing Charters are based out of Carrum, and fish on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay. Their 30’ boat is powered by twin 300HP Suzuki engines, and is equipped with Lowrance GPS and Furuno Fishfinders. It can accommodate up to 10 anglers, and comes equipped with outriggers, rod holders, and all the necessary fishing equipment, lures and live bait that you will need. They offer half day trips targeting species such as Snapper, Kingfish, Sharks, Whiting, Squid and others that are in season.

From around April until July, Online Fishing Charters move to Portland for some thrilling Tuna fishing, where you can join them on their full day charters.
