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 [...]

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!)
