It's an exciting time of year where many anglers will be hoping to fulfill their dreams of catching Snapper. For some it can seem easy as they have many years experience. For others it could be another year of missing out....

This is what every Snapper fisho wants to see, the buckling rod as a solid Snapper inhales a bait!!


A Think BIG Snapper Charter can help you achieve to land those Snapper you've been wishing for.

We experienced consistant Snapper fishing on our charters last season from late September onwards, however the more reliable action gathers pace around mid to late October on throughout December.

Our Snapper Charters cater for both the novice as well as the regular angler & are a great way to learn more tips & techniques for Snapper fishing scenarios. Group or Individual bookings are available. We also offer Think BIG Gift Vouchers for Snapper, Gummy Shark & Whiting/Squid Charters. These make an ideal gift for partners or close friends.

Finding The Action

Being mobile as always, we will endeavour to go where the hottest bite is at the time.

Both Westernport & Port Phillip Bay charters are available.

Our charters are also more than just a boat trip out to land some Snapper, we offer help with information & techniques that will increase your fishing ability.

The use of sounder & finding fish is explained to clients so they have a better idea of what it’s all about.

All clients are encouraged to hook their own Snapper, with all this explained as we set things up.

Baiting up is shown & explained.

We have, use & recommend Shimano Tackle, with all bait & burley being supplied.

Think BIG Snapper Charter Information

 

Clients are asked to dress accordingly & to provide their own light food/drinks/snacks for their charter.
All fish kept by clients (Current Vic Bag Limit 3 Per Person for Snapper over 40cm's) are to be cleaned by client as cleaning of fish is prohibited inside Patterson River.

Current Victorian Fisheries law also state that fish are to be brought back to the ramp in whole or carcass form.

With the increase of Snapper charters last season, we will be shifting to 5 hour Snapper charters for the 2012 Snapper season.

This will allow us to accommodate up to 3 trips per day during the busy period of Oct-Dec in Port Phillip Bay.

On days of 1-2 charters only, clients will often have the option of staying on an extra hour to 6 in total at the skippers discretion.

Generally if it has been a slow day on the bite, this is a way of increasing chances for clients, as we all know that Snapper can be fickle some days.

Western Port Snapper charters again will be run along the same lines & will still be 6 hours wherever possible.

BIG RED Trophy Snapper Charters

Chasing snapper in Western Port is at the heart of this business. It is what we live for and there is nothing we do better nor is there any other fish that means as much to us as Melbourne snapper. The foundations of Think BIG were forged after many many years of dedication to this species and this is where we truly excel compared to our peers. And we're not talking about school fish either, no, we are talking about genuine BIG RED, a term we feel is thrown around far to cheaply.

Every Spring huge, super wary adult snapper enter both Westernport & Port Phillip Bay along with the many millions school-sized snapper. And while these smaller bread'n'butter school fish in the 2 to 7kg range do provide many satisfied clients over a season, its the enigma of Western Port's BIG RED that captures most peoples imagination.

These large trophy fish, especially the big knobby male snapper, don't come easy and are a species we hold in very high regard. In our opinion there is not a tougher angling challenge in Melbourne than finding, hooking and landing one of these big beats, especially those over the magical mark of 20lbs. Snapper at this size are often around 30 to 50 years old and are so because they are incredible wary of man. We are dedicated to these fish and do our utmost to help seek out these large Red Beasts. To us they are a species unto themselves and not to be confused with every day school snapper.

From time to time throughout October & November there'll be select 'Special BIG RED Charters'. These charters are best suited to clients who have landed school sized Snapper & are keen to step up to the plate of hunting BIG RED in Westernport & Port Phillip Bay. As with all forms of fishing, but especially Trophy sized Snapper, success can never be guaranteed, however the lessons learnt on a Think BIG Charter are of a huge benefit to all clients future Big Snapper sessions.
