Melbourne is excellently located in terms of targeting the great eating and fighting Snapper. These fish make the Port Phillip Bay their annual feeding and spawning grounds and can be seen here in schools of thousands.

Come September, Snapper start showing up around the Bass Strait reefs between Torquay and Sorrento, to move deeper into the bay in October and incur some excellent fishing through December. Some say that the best and heaviest fish (up to 10kg) are caught right here.

During the season, most operators will run 2-3 half day charters daily, with individual tickets available.

Fishing is a sport, you win some you lose some. Going out on a charter does not guarantee you catching your dream fish. Research the area, talk to the captain and book an appropriate time to go.
