Reel Time Fishing Charters

2 Launching Way
Carrum VI, Australia

Reel Time Fishing Charters run daily Snapper trips on Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay during the season from October through December, launching from Carrum Boat Ramp. Skipper Matt Cini began fishing when he was 8 years old, and at 24 decided to start his own charter business - and has never looked back!

Join him aboard his 2014 30’ Pelagic boat that can reach speeds of up to 32 knots with its twin 400HP Mercury engines, ensuring you waste no time getting to the fishing grounds. The vessel has a wide and spacious deck, providing plenty of room for up to 10 guests. It comes equipped with Furuno navigational electronics to help locate the action below, and has a private plumbed toilet for your comfort.

Reel Time Fishing Charters specializes in fishing with light and heavy tackle, trolling, bottom fishing, spinning, jigging and drift fishing. On these shared and private 5-hour trips, you will have the opportunity to target a variety of species such as Melbourne’s infamous “Big Red” Snapper, King George Whiting, Yellowtail Kingfish, Elephant Fish, Wrasse, Salmon, Gummy Shark, Squid and more. Trips include rods, reels and terminal tackle, lures, and live bait. Don’t forget to organise your Victorian recreational fishing license ahead of your trip.

No matter if you are after some serious fishing action or are heading out for the first time, Matt and Reel Time Fishing Charters will be happy to assist you throughout the day to ensure you have a fantastic day on the water.

Reel Time Fishing Charters also fish for similar species out of Martha Cove from January through April and August through September, or join them out West in Portland from May through July to hunt down the mighty Southern Bluefin Tuna, and possibly encounter Mahi Mahi and Albacore Tuna.

About the Captain

Matt Cini
Carrum, Victoria, Australia
Member since July 2016
Matt Cini first started fishing with his uncles at the young age of 8. It quickly became his passion, and so at the age of 24, he decided to start his own fishing charter business. He has been in the industry for many years and has acquired much knowledge and experience along the way. In fact, there is most likely nothing that Matt doesn’t know about fishing in Port Phillip Bay! If you are looking to fish with one of Victoria's best charter operators, then you really need not look any further.
