Matthew Hunt Fishing Services offers one of Melbourne’s premier most consistent & experienced Port Phillip Snapper fishing charters. Fishing between Dromana and Port Melbourne in water depths between 5m-25m ensures the best location options after considering relevant factors such as the wind, the moon & tide conditions, the temperature and clarity of the water, the time of year, the size of the fish being targeted and the size of the school you’re targeting. Male fish and female fish tend to school and behave differently as the season progresses and food supply changes, and Matthew Hunt Fishing Services has ample experience to use all these factors to your advantage.

Our unique Custom 9.1m charter Vessel “Regina” is proven beyond requirements & departs Carrum Approx Halfway along the Bay’s eastern seaboard, allowing access to the most productive grounds, whether north south east west. It is 40-50min from Westgate Bridge or CBD - travelling along both city & Penisula link gives you the best chance. 5am,10am & 3pm are daily departure times untill 1/1/17

Everything needed for snapper fishing is supplied - all you need is a VIC fishing licence and anything you require to be comfortable fishing on a boat for 5hrs (food,drink,sun block appropriate clothing etc). Whether you just wanna dangle a line and relax or run a rack of 4-8 rods constantly, it’s your call as long as we are all safe, fishing efficiently as needed to get results, and all is well.

If the crew, myself, yourself, the vessel or equipment is put at unnecessary risk, the trip’s fishing efforts are hindered, or others are disrespected that’s when I’ll advise why certain actions need to cease. Our trips’ goal in catching fish safely is all people that matter judge me on knowledge, experience, respect, logic, constant learning, being alert and thoughtful. Positive action and reaction are what enables me to still have a passion for what I have done all my life. Hope to see you onboard soon!

My Father being Rex Hunt, I was always going to fish! But seeing people when they land a personal best or bag out is priceless to me and something I never tire of. I have 35 years of experience and bring that knowledge to every charter I run.
