Reel Time Fishing Charters

Martha Cove Boulevard
Mornington VI, Australia

From January to April and August to September you will find Reel Time Fishing Charters departing from Martha Cove on the Mornington Peninsula, only a 50 min drive from Melbourne’s CBD. Skipper and owner, Matt Cini, has over 30 years of experience fishing Port Phillip Bay, and runs one of the best charter businesses in the area. He loves this time of year as there is an endless variety of species you can target, and he will ensure that no matter what the species you’re after, you will have an enjoyable and action-packed day on the water.

Your vessel will be a 2014 30’ Pelagic boat that can accommodate up to 10 guests, and features a spacious deck with partial cover, Furuno navigational equipment, as well as powerful twin 400HP Mercury motors that can take it to top speeds of 32 knots. For your comfort, there is also a private plumbed toilet on board.

Exciting species that you will find in these waters include Yellowtail Kingfish, Snapper, King George Whiting, Squid, Gummy Sharks and more, and as trips are designed to target specific species, you can choose exactly what you wish to fish for. Matt Cini and his team will supply you with quality gear, tackle and bait, and no matter your skill level, will guide you through the best methods of landing each species, ensuring you want to come back and do it all again.

During other months of the year, you can find Reel Time Fishing Charters targeting Snapper out of Carrum during the October to December season, or chasing Southern Bluefin Tuna in Portland from May to July. They look forward to seeing you on the water and joining them on their amazing fishing charter vessel. Take care and tight lines!

About the Captain

Matt Cini
Mornington, 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.
