Magnet Fishing Charters - Portland

Portland Boat Ramp
Portland VI, Australia

Magnet Fishing Charters’ own Captain Jason Farrugia has been fishing and hunting Victorian waterways his whole life, and sure knows the best spots for each species on offer. The Magnet is based out of Portland from April until mid August.

Captain Jason possesses a powerful custom built offshore boat that has a fully functional working deck space with two 200 HP motors. The safe and comfortable boat is the most stable fishing craft in the Victorian fleet. All guests will be taken to the hot-spots using the most up to date electronics installed in order to locate the best fish. The boat also boasts a toilet, which is definitely a huge plus for all guests. 

The Magnet Fishing Charters team uses high quality specialised equipment on all of their charters, and provide first class rods, reels, line, live bait and lures which are all included in the price.

On these great charters, you will target the mighty Southern Bluefin Tuna which can get as big as 2.5 meters and up to 260 kilograms in weight. The great predators will put up a fight and will leave a lasting memory, giving you fishing tales to tell to your grandkids for years to come. You could catch the Albacore Tuna, as well as the spine-chilling Mako Sharks. Their brilliant silvery shine is sure to catch your eye, and if you happen to catch one, it will be an unforgettable experience with their infamous acrobatic flips and fast runs.
