Melbourne Kingfish fishing at its best

Here’s some examples of kingfish fishing over the last month or so, heaps of fun especially targeting the small stuff on lighter gear!

The kingfish poster boys for Joe Farr Fishing Charters – nice day out fellas!

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 the luck of the draw and how the fish are feeling on the day! I give you guys the gear, fresh bait and decent tackle and make sure we only go on days where the tide, swell and wind conditions are favourable for catching them.

Two nice kingies!

I go fishing whenever I can so I know what the fish are likely to be doing and what gear we’ll need for when I take you guys out on your fishing charters, and so far this season it’s paid off beautifully!

Here’s some footage from a charter catching small kingies:


I know catching a kingfish is on a lot of people’s bucket lists. They fight hard and fight dirty and you’ve really got to work hard to catch ‘em. Some days you can see them all around you but they just won’t bite. They’re pretty smart fish and aren’t easy to catch, so I’m stoked to be able to put my customers on to some great Melbourne sport fishing, the kind to write home about!

See you on the water!
