Western Port Bay Gummy Shark Fishing Charters. If it's heart stopping action you're after, then come and try one of our Gummy Shark charters!
Gummy shark is well known for it's dirty, fighting ability, that even the smallest of gummys can provide the greatest of thrills. They are also regarded as an exceptional quality eating fish.
The gummy shark season is at it's peak from December through to May. Gummy sharks are however available at all times of the year
We operate our gummy charters out of Melbourne's Western Port bay, departing from Stony Point , Hastings or Corinella. Although gummys may be caught on all tides and times, we have established our own favourite specific tides and times, for particular locations, which we believe to be more productive. Sometimes these times may not be your typical fishing hours, however well worth the effort when rewarded with one of these beautiful fish.
Fishing for gummys will often provide an opportunity for you to catch other exciting fish, such as thresher shark, seven gill sharks and snapper, just to name a few. As well as having to do battle quite often with some huge rays and other undesirable rays and sharks!
A good fighting gummy will rival some of the best game fish pound for pound often causing some kind of mayhem alongside the boat! These fish have some serious muscle! So come and have a go, whether on your own or with a group of friends, it's an experience not to be missed!
