Magnet Fishing Charters – Portland

Join Magnet Fishing Charters on an incredible adventure and get ready to create lasting memories in the Southern Ocean! Captain Jason Farrugia has been fishing the Victorian waterways his whole life and he knows the best spots to put you on big fish.

You’ll spend the day fishing off of a 29’ Hydrofield offshore sportfisher. This boat is one of the most stable vessels – perfect for Victoria’s choppy waters. She’s a fast boat as well. You’ll be whisked away to the hottest fishing spots while being propelled by twin 200 HP Yamaha engines.

Your skipper will use the most up-to-date electronics in order to get you hooked up in no time. The boat also features a toilet, which is definitely a huge plus for those long offshore trips.

You’ll have the chance to target Southern Bluefin Tuna, which can reach up to 2.5 meters in length and weigh up to 260 kilograms. This great predator will put up a heck of a fight, leaving lasting memories for you to tell your grandkids one day.

You can also target Albacore Tuna, as well as the spine-chilling Mako Shark. Their brilliant silvery shine is sure to catch your eye! If you happen to catch one, it will be an unforgettable experience with their infamous acrobatic flips and fast runs.

The crew will provide high-quality, specialized equipment on all of their trips, and supply you with first-class rods, reels, lines, live bait, and lures. Everything is included in the price as well.
