Victorian Deep-sea Fishing Championships

October 15 will mark the 5th year of the annual Victorian Deep Sea Fishing Championship competition. The event draws keen anglers from all around Australia all who vie for the prized first place position. Victoria seems to be the fishing mecca in Australia.

Taking place off the Mornington Peninsula area the event draws hundreds of boats who congregate around the port of Hastings. The competition stipulates that all entrants must travel out of the Western Port body of water into the Bass Strait where the deeper water attracts larger fish. Mako shark, Pink Ling, Snapper and even the rare Mahi Mahi or Wahoo are common catches each year. Last year’s winner from Melbourne, Steve who also runs Bagout Charters is also the favourite to take out the gong again this year. We asked him to explain the secrets of his technique, “I’m not going to tell you our edge but if you mix the basis which are finding the fish on the sounder and combining this with tested rigs, bait and movement techniques then you can’t go wrong. Throw in some patience and determination and you will always give yourself a good edge”.

15kms off the coast of Victoria the Bass Strait is teeming with different varieties of native Australian fish species. Further inland, the Westernport region features whiting, snapper, gummy shark and pinkies with are popular with weekend anglers.


All eyes will be on the competition this year and whether the Bagout crew can come away with another win. I was lucky enough to go on one of their deep sea shark charters last year and we had a great day on the water catching 2 mako shark and 1 gummy shark in excellent conditions.

Bluefin Tuna in Portland

For a very long time now we have been noticing that in the months of April through August, tuna swims wildly around the Portland and Port Fairy bay area in Victoria.

With an amazing volume of fish available for the catch by only the best fisherman, our days have long become memorised by the complexity of going on a fishing charter in Portland such as here. Thanks to a fully equipped boat, tackle and equipment, we are able to successfully and happily indulge in a charter which goes for a couple of hours headed by a famous expert himself Mr Bagout.

One of my most rewarding experiences was when I originally went on a Snapper Fishing Charter in Carrum.I was sick on this day because of the swell that I had experienced. Of course, we had to leave very early in the morning (6:00am) in fact so this meant I had very little option to be prepared, especially seeing as the night was filled with alcohol before ;)

If you are planning on hiring an expert bluefin tuna expert, rely on Andrew, he truly is the most resident expert in tuna fishing. For so long now he has been regarded as the most affluent and approachable fisherman I have ever come across, he even has his first fish that he caught as a taxidermy in his lounge room, well isn’t that just hilarious lol :) ,

I would strongly suggest considering this charter group. If you want to know the costs of tuna fishing in Portland go to this page.

That is all we can really suggest, get out in the sun and catch some tunas, you’ll love them just like little Japanese boys do too!

Have a great time fishing and if you have any questions call them they will be happy to help.
