I share a lot of time with a lot of people on the water each year & I wouldn’t change it for all the Yibbida’s in China!
This is Paul he just booked a trip for 2020 & is a ripper fisherman, I’m proud that there’s still 1 or 2 people about who value what I do🎣👍✌️
For those who want to fish with me for Snapper in Port Phillip Bay in what is my 40th year at it, it’s $150 per person, maximum 6 anglers departing Launching way Carrum @ 5am,10,am or 3pm Daily from 28/10/20-24/1/21 (custom charters available mid week if I’m not booked) call or text me on 0419760510 to communicate with the ONLY skipper who has his name on his vessel & business ! For a real time chance at big red in 2020 forget the vouchers forget 30% discount next time & forget people who imitate, lie & slander to feel better 🤷‍♂️Come fishing with me or go wishing with most of the others🤦‍♂️ I’m looking forward to doing my thing once again

Looking forward to it buddy can’t wait your a great bloke and an awesome skipper you should be proud of what you’ve achieved see ya soon bud safe travels

We will be fishing with you Matthew Hunt we have for years and make the trip from Carrum to Portland every year always have a ball and get good solid fish. Best part is we book your boat and we arnt told what fishing rod we can pick up or when we can take a photo of the fish. On your boat the client allways comes first. Best in the Buisness in my opinion.

Hope it’s all go and you have a ripper season mate

Any of my friends and mates want a fishing trip with a genuine 100% charter operator look up Matthew Hunt Fishing Charters, i have known this bloke since he was a young man, knows the areas he fishes like the back of his hand, Tell him Weedkiller said hello, then buy him a beer, 🙂

Can’t wait for it this year matty

💪🏻 yeah man

Every bodies happy

Kylie Watts

No one has the pride or passion you do 👍

I will go out every day with the snapper king if I can afford it, not just catch but for life time advice on skill and knowledge. Yiiipppaaa!

Nice one

Dan is a great bloke, he came over to ppb a few years ago to give our snapper a crack, I believe his brother was local. The guy was honest and hard working and we tried to help him out as much as possible. I hope the joint venture works out for you both and you both get through these hard times Fish hard. Work hard. Reap the rewards. That's why I like guys like you. Keep up the good work Matty and Dan

Double trouble Good stuff boys

Loris Lukic

Dan is a great bloke, he came over to ppb a few years ago to give our snapper a crack, I believe his brother was local. The guy was honest and hard working and we tried to help him out as much as possible. I hope the joint venture works out for you both and you both get through these hard times Fish hard. Work hard. Reap the rewards. That's why I like guys like you. Keep up the good work Matty and Dan

Southern Bluefin Tuna

What a fish! Not to be confused with the similar Northern hemisphere Atlantic Bluefin Tuna, the Southern Bluefin Tuna or SBT’s are one of the best fish you will catch. Revered by fishermen around the world for a relentless fighting ability, it’s no surprise these are our most popular charters. They always sell out fast.

Any time after March each year the line-peeling school fish invade the southern coastline of Australia. We port at Portland for most of the year. While the smaller fish will pester the lures, the ultimate for many fishermen is the Giant Bluefin otherwise known as ‘Barrels’. If you catch one of these, you’ll have lasting memories long into retirement.

While Skipper Matt is fully qualified to venture into the deeper water on the edge of the Continental Shelf, ironically the larger fish can be caught in shallower water closer to shore. We intercept them as they chase the abundant baitfish schools all along the south coast. Matthew Hunt Fishing Services has not only has a purpose-built vessel for these waters, but the Skipper qualifications also. Our difference is our skills and experience so you get the most from your Tuna Fishing adventure.

BOOKINGS

Once you have booked a charter and paid your deposit, we will contact you when weather conditions can be confirmed. A 30% deposit must be paid in full upon initial confirmation and the final balance must be paid in full on day of charter or 3 days prior to the charter’s departure if paying by direct deposit. ( Payment options are available on contact page) We do not offer credit, all charters must be paid for prior to departure, this includes those on invoice.

PASSENGER MANIFEST

All clients boaring the MV Regina must complete all details on our passenger manifest prior to departure.

A courtesy call is greatly appreciated in the event that you are running behind schedule. Please provide a mobile phone number that will be with you on the day of the charter.

Both single bookings and small groups may be used to make up a full charter, unless the full boat charter cost has been paid. Each trip is made up of a minimum of 6 clients for snapper and 4 for game fishing. Matthew Hunt Fishing Services has the right to reschedule any trip if numbers are low. All clients will be fully refunded if their trip is cancelled and cannot be rescheduled.

If the charter is cut short for bad weather, medical emergency or vessel complications, the cost will be reduced to an equivalent hour rate, so you will only pay for time spent on the water. All charters are to be paid in full BEFORE departure. Any necessary adjustments will be made after return to Port.

CANCELLATIONS

At least 7 days notice must be given if a cancellation is made for a single booking or minimum of 14 days for a group booking. A cancellation given outside this time line will forfeit all deposit paid. A no show on the day of departure will result in forfeit of all moneys paid. In the event the Skipper cancels a charter for any reason, all clients will be advised at the earliest possible time and the charter will be rescheduled to a later date. If for any reason reschedule can’t be done, a full refund will be given of money already paid. All trips are subject to weather conditions. If charter is to be cancelled due to weather we will contact you as early as possible. Although we watch the weather reports consistently, they are not always 100% correct and weather conditions can change rapidly. If at any time you have any concerns in relation to weather or possibility of cancellation due to weather please contact us on 0419 760 510.

EXCEPTIONS

Quite often our skipper receives reports of fish biting well at a particular location a bit further a field than the bays or a productive night bite elsewhere. When this occurs departure times and trip duration may vary to suit the targeted species.

Port Phillip Snapper Charters

Port Phillip Bay is nationally famous for snapper. Each Spring, when the warmer water floods into the bay, large schools of snapper follow in search of food. These fish can grow very large (up to 15kg) and while it can be rare to get them that big we often bag 5kg+ snapper each season. Some Victorians’ love affair with these fish turns into an obsession as they seek to catch that ‘Big Red’. Who can blame them, not only are they close to shore and accessible, they are hard-fighting and very tasty on the bbq. On a charter with us you can get a great fight followed by a great feed as you get to take home your very own Port Phillip Bay succulent snapper fillets at the end of the day.

For Port Phillip Snapper Charters we depart from Patterson River at Carrum, just North of Frankston in Melbourne’s South Eastern bayside region. From here we will travel across the waters of the bay to our secret fishing spots.

Bag Limits & Legal Sizes for Snapper apply – Skipper Matt will ensure everyone stays within limits.

What to Bring On Port Phillip Snapper Charters

While it’s typically warmer at this time of year, Melbourne’s weather is always unpredictable so bring along appropriate clothing and footwear for fishing on a boat. We recommend sunglasses, warm/sun hat, any food/drink you may require while, camera and all Anglers must have a current Victorian Fishing Licence (unless exempt).
