Westernport Fishing Charters - 38ft

Mullet Street
Hastings VI, Australia

Westernport Fishing Charters, based in Hastings, Victoria, have been running fishing charters in Westernport Bay and Bass Strait for many years. Join the crew on one of their two boats, for an exciting day of fishing.

Their 38 ft Leeder boat ‘Sidewinder’ can accommodate up to 16 guests, and is powered by a 550HP Detroit engine. The boat features state-of-the-art equipment including GPS, colour fish finder and radar, and Shimano fishing gear. On board you will also find a kitchen with fridge, ice-box, toilet and multimedia system.

Westernport Fishing Charters depart from Westernport Marina, and offer private and shared charters ranging from 4 to 10 hours. They are suited for all skills levels, and the crew welcome individuals, and small or large groups. Specialising in light and heavy tackle, bottom and drift fishing, they will get you targeting species such as Snapper, Flathead, Whiting, Garfish, and Shark in Westernport Bay and Bass Strait. Trips include the use of rods, reels and tackle, and the crew will provide you with tea and coffee, and a sausage sizzle or BBQ lunch.

Charters also run on their 50’ boat ‘Flying Fish II’.

Sorry you didn’t catch any fish Qiang, unfortunately it was a very slow day on the fish. Hopefully we can get you a bagful next time. Thank you for posting the review.

Shi, i am very surprised you only gave our crew and the trip two stars. You caught about 40 pinkie snapper on your trip and the crew made a big effort to assist you to do this. We thought the trip was a great success.

This trip was fantastic. The crew were helpful and approachable. They went out of their way to make the trip enjoyable. The fish were not fully co operating that day but the crew did their best to make it a successful day even going as far as extending the fishing time an extra hour. Very professional crew with a very well equipped boat comfortable boat. I should have sold my boat years ago and gone on this fishing charter instead. Cannot recommend Westernport Fishing Charters highly enough. Very good value and a fantastic fun day out.
