Snapper season & summer in Sorrento

It’s that time of year again. The sun’s a shinin’ on the Mornington Peninsula, the smell of fresh cut grass drifts through the neighbourhood and, wait, that smells like… yep….it is… freshly caught snapper on the BBQ!

It’s been a busy few months here at Joe Farr Fishing Charters and we’ve been fishing flat out, so this is just a quick post to let you know what’s going been going on in Port Phillip Bay and Bass Strait. Been catching a lot of Gummy shark, going on early morning Snapper trips, catching good sized usual suspects the King George Whiting (my favourite eating fish) and Calamari Squid, plus the Southern Bluespot Flathead have arrived and are tasty as ever, plus they pull harder and are much less work to fillet than the little freds!

Even the surf fishing’s been pretty good. Below is my handy Australian Salmon transportation device. Should probably put my patent request in soon.

Have crossed paths with a few saw sharks lately too. Stay tuned for some more pics from fishing trips in Port Phillip Bay and Bass Strait.

Re. availability, I’m fishing the next week solid but might have a few spots for singles or doubles, plus the odd group of 3. If you’re wanting to get out on the water give me a call on 0488 229 752 or contact us via our online contact form here.
