“We don't run a show that leaves at a fixed time as we are happy to be as serious as people wish us to be in regards to the fishing, sometimes this will mean we recommend a 4am departure for example to get the dawn bite on the snapper other days it maybe 10am.”
Species available to our clients include Snapper, Whiting, Yellowtail Kingfish, Salmon, Mako Sharks, Thresher Sharks, Blue Sharks, Calamari, Barracouta and numerous reef fish.
Queenscliff is situated at the mouth of Port Phillip Bay in Victoria and offers a unique and diverse range of fishing options. These range from shallow sand flats to 90 metre canyons, all within 10 minutes of Queenscliff's sheltered harbour. Having shorelines that offer protection from 90% of the region's predominant winds, Queenscliff allows our clients to fish safely and in relative comfort. More importantly, it is rare for a trip to be cancelled due to weather.
Because of our close proximity to Port Phillip Heads, we are able to offer the option of fishing Bass Strait on all our trips (weather permitting). The vast majority of the grounds fished have no commercial pressure, and this coupled with nutrient-rich tidal flows make Queenscliff a fisherman's paradise.
