Queenscliff Fishing Charters specialise in flatly and Gummy Shark trips, in the beautiful waters of Queenscliff, Victoria. They are quite the experts in catching bay species and will provide excellent assistance on all their trips. You will have a friendly and experienced skipper and deckhand on board to guide you to the fish, show you how to cast for it and how to reel it in.

You will fish aboard their 32-foot Gilcraft commercial boat, originally built in 1972, and restored in 2016. This beauty is regularly maintained to keep it up to date with the latest electronics and to make sure it is comfortable for its guests. The boat is powered by a 130 HP Perkins 6354 engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 8 knots.

You will sail the Port Phillip Bay, and change locations from Point Nepean, Portsea, Quarantine Bay, Queenscliff, Swan Bay and St Leonards depending on the weather conditions and where the fish have been reported to be biting.

The area of Port Phillip Bay has seen Calamari fishing growing in popularity, and of course trolling for busting schools of Salmon is a favourite all round. You can also catch a huge variety of species such as Leatherjacket, Flathead, Gummy Sharks, Snapper, Wrasse, Trevally, Rockfish, Gurnard, King George Whiting, Garfish and many more.

Your comfort is their priority, and they try to fish in productive yet comfortable conditions on each trip. They will provide all the fishing gear needed, as well as clean and fillet your catch once your trip is over so you can enjoy it when you get home.

Queenscliff Fishing Charters are always happy to give angling tips and have plenty of pointers on how to cook and enjoy your catch. They welcome families and large groups, or just single anglers, and a minimum of 7 people is required to head out.

Member since October 2016
Started at 3 or 4 yrs old with my dad uncle and grandpa on Piers, Surf fishing, and rock fishing. I progressed to boats and fishing for sport. Mid 20's began more and more lure fishing the by 30yrs old was right into soft plastics. I found the job as a deckhand about 13 yrs ago and my passion for fishing just increased. I was fortunate enough to work with many skippers on different boats. It came time to buy my own charter boat 9 yrs ago and I haven't looked back. I've always loved and respected the sea.

Great experience, good quality rods and reels.
I was expecting to clean my catch, as I have done on other charters. The crew expertly cleaned and fillerted my catch.

While the fishing was a bit slow, the captain tried other spots.

I was happy as I caught my first gernard.

Disappointed as original booking was changed by Captain to a new schedule and was not informed till we had to call in to find out the evening of next day departure. Fishing trip departure time was not puncture and half an hour late.
