Melbourne Fishing Charters Braevera

1 Pier Road, STkilda
Melbourne VI, Australia

Melbourne Fishing Charters invites you aboard their vessel “Braevera” for a private charter. Come and enjoy a fishing experience that is catered to you and your family and friends. The skipper and crew are waiting for you on the St. Kilda pier, ready to help you get the most out of your time on Port Philip Bay!

The “Braevera” is a 36’ Steber powered by a 420 HP Caterpillar engine. She comes equipped with everything you need, from GPS, fishfinder, and Penn fishing gear to an onboard grill where you can cook your catch. The onboard toilet allows you to fish all day without sacrificing your comfort. This boat can carry up to 12 passengers and is ideal for smaller groups who are looking for a more personal fishing experience.

Melbourne Fishing Charters operates all year round, but springtime is undoubtedly the most exciting time to be on the water! This is when the Snapper migrate into Port Phillip Bay bay, giving you a chance to hook into a really big and delicious catch. While fishing the bay, you may also catch Cod, Flathead, Australian Salmon, and more. There are several half day charters to choose from, including a hardcore Snapper trip for those who are dedicated to targeting this species. You can keep your catch and the crew will clean and fillet it for you.

Melbourne Fishing Charters provides all the gear you need, as well as lunch, drinks, and their famous “catch & cook” speciality. You will need to purchase a fishing license the day before your trip. The staff will be in touch to discuss this detail and many others after you book your charter. 

Bring your family and friends aboard today and experience Port Phillip Bay fishing for yourself!

Hi I'm Capt Andre I have been operating my fishing charters from ST Kilda Pier for 11 years and chartering for a total of 16 years. I want to share with my guests an awesome fishing experience and share my stories from a life time at sea. As a kid I spent all my time fishing with dad at sea in Western Port Bay and along the coast of Victoria. As a young man I went to sea working on off shore trawlers around Australia. I love talking about my life time of fishing experiences and my greatest passion is watching my customer catch fish. I do whatever it takes to get you a fish to take home. I promise to look after you board, I'll cook your catch or clean it up for you to take home and cook you up some lunch.
