Basel Eltarifi

Your dad Is a legend. He is responsible for the catch and release movement. As a kid I devoured anything your old man was involved in, his books, his TV shows he taught so many how to fish as he concentrated on so many bread and butter species. We used to go to the coast once a year and I would put into practice everything I had seen Rex do. What a champion.

Well done matty 👍

All the best to the great Man. Loved his footy commentary , his fishing shows and anything else he did.

Hope the big fella is doing ok mate the last time I spoke with him was on the east bank of Purrembete quite a few years ago me on the bank Rex in the tinny all the best Rex

All the best to you and yours Matty. Take care Dude. <3

thats great

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.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

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.

Due to time constraints it is not always possible to wait for late-comers. We ask that all anglers be at the departing boat ramp 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure time. 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.

GIFT VOUCHERS

Gift vouchers are valid for 12 months, unless previously arranged and extension given. If voucher has not been fullfilled within 12 months please contact Matthew Hunt Fishing Services before time lapses. It may be possible to transfer voucher for another charter, extra costs may be charged re: price change in charter, or upgrade to different charter service. If a client wishes to upgrade from Bay Charter to Game/Open Water Charter, this can be done providing it is discussed at time of booking and any difference in cost paid. Gift Vouchers are non refundable.

PRIVACY STATEMENT

Matthew Hunt Fishing Services keeps all client details received, confidential and only uses these details for business purposes. In the event of a medical emergency or credit enquiries, client details may be passed on to any significant professional. Any photo’s or video taken by Matthew Hunt Fishing Services during charter may be used for promotional material. If any client wishes to receive copies of photos taken on charter please email info@fishingservices.com.au

CHILDREN

As a general rule we do not allow children under the age of 12 on Bay Charters (unless previously discussed with the Skipper prior to charter), and children under the age of 16 on Open Water Charters as they are considered a high risk in the event of an emergency. If you wish to bring your child along and they fit into these catagories, please discuss with Matthew Hunt Fishing Services.

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).

Matthew Hunt’s Credentials

All in an afternoon’s work for skipper Matt Hunt

When travelling out in some of the most dangerous seas in Australia it’s important that your skipper complies with all required legislation and follows best practices at all times.

In his years on and off the water, Matthew Hunt has backed up his fishing knowledge with some of the highest levels of certification you can attain. Specifically this includes a Coxswain Certificate, M.E.D Grade 3, a Master Class 5 and a Skipper 3. Unless you’re a boat owner yourself, this means he is legally certified to target the large Southern Bluefin Tuna in the Southern Ocean and venture far out to sea safely in search of the best fish.

So if you want a true game fishing experience, Matthew Hunt is the skipper you can trust.

For the safety of all of his charter guests, he also holds a level 2 first aid certification.

The MV Regina

Skipper Matt goes the extra mile to make sure his anglers are happy with their fishing experience. He will actively search and hunt for the fish that you came on board to catch on his boat, the MV Regina.

This vessel is designed with customer comfort in mind and is perfect for both inshore and offshore charter expeditions.

The MV Regina is a 9.1m Clayton Galant with an inboard Yamaha motor. The vessel meets the 2C USL Code and is designed specifically for sport fishing in Victorian waters. It will easily accommodate groups, so if you and your friends want to spend a day or an afternoon together, this is the perfect way to do it.

When you charter with Skipper Matt, you are sure to have a truly unforgettable fishing experience. You can rely on his intuition, skill and experience to select the best fishing spots for your expedition. He knows the waters like the back of his hand.

Depending on which charter you choose, you will have the option to catch a wide variety of fish including mako sharks, albacore tuna,  mahi mahi, swordfish, bluefin tuna, flathead, snapper and more.
