Once again Melbournes premier angling species Snapper are moving in steadily into both Western Port & Port Phillip Bay. From this weekend until the week or so prior to Christmas Day, Think BIG Charters will be out as often as possible to find these excellent hard fighting & sometimes frustrating species for our clients.

Our Charter Booking Calendar has been updated with a huge list of avail dates added. We expect these to fill fast going on past seasons & ask interested clients to ring promptly to secure your seat, as once the 'Snapper Bite' heats up so to speak, many dates will be filled very quickly. Our Snapper Charters are a full 6 hour duration & can often run longer than this to offer even better value for money. We generally run our charters around the prime bite periods of first & last light. We also have a lot of night time charters that often see a better size class of Snapper. It's during the darker hours that on average the true trophy sized Snapper are encountered. We are the only charter service in Australia that runs 24/7 365 days a year.  Like our motto says ANY FISH, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!


As Spring moves into the opening of Summer, BIG Gummy Sharks & the ever elusive School Sharks will start to show their presence & work their way into the Port to breed.

These will be another favourite species for us to seek out for our clients.

Mulloway too will also be available for the dedicated few who understand what is required for these shy silver fish.

Of course how could we forget the Fighting Whiting that are Inviting & Exciting when Biting.

Western Port is famous for these excellent eating spotted fish & will fish increasingly better for these from mid October through until June at least.


So it's all looking like a great season ahead everybody !!
