Snapper, sharks and sun!

Posted by on October 28, 2014 at 5:53 am

It’s that time of year again… the sun has decided to come out of hibernation and everyone’s eye has turned to the BIG REDS! We love snapper and there’s nothing quite as satisfying as catching your own fresh fish for a seafood dinner, especially when they fight as hard as the snapper do! Fishing trips [...]

Melbourne Kingfish fishing at its best

Posted by on March 10, 2014 at 3:35 am

Here’s some examples of kingfish fishing over the last month or so, heaps of fun especially targeting the small stuff on lighter gear! Kingfish are great fun to catch and I love this time of year for fishing. Some trips we only catch one, others we clean up on the kingfish, it all depends on [...]

It’s been exciting times lately in Port Phillip Bay! We’ve been targeting the seasonal yellowtail kingfish and we have been catching em… and bluefin tuna!

Life is good with Joe Farr Fishing Charters…finally! We had a serious break there while ‘Seamphony’ needed a complete motor replacement and repaint schmack in the middle of our busy period.

Fishing the winter on Port Phillip Bay

Posted by on May 23, 2012 at 11:24 am

Winter’s here! I love fishing this time of year, (particularly now that I’ve got the new boat with heated cabin and decent overhead cover!) It’s light earlier, the variety of catch is awesome, and best of all there aren’t many boats at the boat ramp! Don’t be fooled though, that’s not because there’s nothing to [...]

Snaps of Snapper

Here are some pics from a recent charter aboard our new girl ‘Seamphony’! Lucky for us (and our clients) she is a fishy boat and clients so far have had good success reeling in the fish!
