Sharkmen Fishing Charters has been hunting fish along the South and Eastern coasts of Australia for over 25 years. Chasing everything from Snapper and Southern Bluefin Tuna to Mako Sharks and Marlin. Sharkmen Fishing Charters are a versatile outfit and launch from Portland, Carrum (in Port Phillip Bay), Port Welshpool and up as far as Bermagui, to give fishermen the best chance of catching the target species.
Got my first Bluefin Tuna AND Marlin with Sharky. Awesome fun. Awesome adventure.
Your Skipper, Wayne Sharrock (aka Sharky), has been fishing these waters his entire life and knows them better than most. This isn’t just a fishy fact either, last year Wayne helped his customers land over 500 Southern Bluefin Tuna!
Check out this EPIC Bluefin Tuna session filmed by That’s Fishing. Be warned, you’ll be straight on the blower booking your next trip once you get an eyeful of the multi-hookup action!
A bit about the boat…
Sharkmen Fishing Charters’ boat is an awesome 37′ Steber named ‘Imagine That’. It’s licensed to carry up to 12 people, and is one of the most comfortable and safe fishing charter vessels you will have the pleasure of fishing in Victoria. The safety standard of the boat allows it to be licensed to travel up to 200 Nautical Miles off the coast of Australia, and if you get a little anxious at the thought, don’t – Wayne is a MASTER 5 / MED 3 Skipper and has more than 25 years under his belt. ‘Imagine That’ also has a fully enclosed toilet, shower with hot water, coffee machine, microwave facilities as well as protection from the weather. A few little comforts go a long way when you’re out among the elements in the big blue.
Speaking of the big blue, Sharkmen Fishing Charters are now offering long range multi-day trips, currently the only Victorian fishing charter to do so. While significantly more expensive than a day trip, they’re highly recommended if you have the means. During the live-a-board experience you’ll get to fish for a wide range of species during day and night, including the usual suspects, plus Hapuka, Blue Eye, Kingfish, Ling and perhaps, if you’re a tinny bugger, a Broadbill Swordfish. Don’t think you’ll be getting much shut-eye on these trips!
