I'm Hooked Fishing Charters – Tuna Trips

Book your next trip with I’m Hooked Fishing Charters and find out what keeps anglers coming back to Melbourne for more. With Captain Mal at the helm, you’ll have a knowledgeable and experienced guide.

These waters hold game fish like Bluefin Tuna, and more if conditions are right. Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself light tackle fishing, popping, trolling, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 24’ Devil Cat catamaran with space for 6 passengers. It comes with everything you need for a productive day on the water. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. What’s more, this vessel is wheelchair accessible. Your captain will provide rods and reels, along with lures.

There will be a First Mate on board to help your trip run smoothly. A 10–20% tip is customary to show your appreciation for their hard work.

You will need to purchase a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect.

Don’t leave home without sunglasses, sunscreen (non-spray), bottled water, and a hat. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Mal began fishing at a very young age with his Dad and 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 has taken him up the coast where he lived in Merimbula where he started fishing from Eden to Tathra catching Marlin Tuna Sharks off the coast. I love fishing in Melbourne we have one of the best fisheries right here on our door step.
