Hauling them in sinceĀ 2004, Reel Time Fishing Charters is one of the most successful charter operations in Melbourne & Portland. Skipper Matt Cini, knows Port Phillip Bay & Western Port like the back of his hand, and has his finger on the pulse when it comes to Bluefin Tuna in the Southern Ocean.

“Helpful, knowledgeable and lots of fun. Even Steve caught fish.”

Reel Time Fishing ChartersĀ target fish in their peak seasons and being a trailerboat, they’re able to follow the fish, departing from locations such as Carrum Boat Ramp for Melbourne’s Big Red’s, Sorrento Boat Ramp for Squid & Whiting or Hastings Boat Ramp for thumper Western Port King George Whiting & Gummy Shark. They even go as far west as Portland chasing the Southern Bluefin…now there’s an experience.
