True to its name unreel fishing charters was unreel! We had an unbelievable buckle bonanza as James would call it with beautiful Port Phillip Bay snapper everywhere. Not only did we catch a lot of great fish, but also learnt a lot. James took the time to teach a little bit about snapper fishing. That was my first but certainly not my last fishing experience with unreel. I have since been out chasing whiting, calamari, mako sharks, and even bluefin tuna. I could not recommend Unreel Fishing Charters highly enough.

We have been out with Unreel fishing charters a few times now, and I must say it was an incredible experience each time. Be it snappers or whiting, Skipper James is very friendly and really knows his stuff. Best charter in Melbourne by far! We even interviewed by TV reporter once when we docked due to the amount of fish we caught!! :)
Will be trying out the shark trips with James, really looking forward to that.
I can’t comment on other locations, But down here in Melbourne Unreel Fishing Charters is a great one. James, the operator, sure knows how to find the fish in a real no frills way and I urge anyone looking to go on a fishing charter, don’t go past this one. I’m certain that you’ll be wrapped.

James Rogers is the fish hunting king! He took us out, he taught us so much, and he delivered the goods. Not only that, It was just great to be all together on the boat...Thanks James

Have fished many times with Unreel Fishing Charters, James works hard to get his clients fish. He has always been thoughtful of those on the boat. He spends many hours on the water to ensure a working knowledge of where the fish are and how to catch them.
If you want to get a feed of fish and an experience of catching them regardless of your skill levels I would highly recommend Unreel Fishing Charters.

Unreel Fishing Charters are incredible. Been with them 8 times now and have never had a bad day out. The skipper James really knows his stuff and is a genuine top bloke. Highly recommended for a great day on the water and to catch some serious fish.

I’ve always loved fishing and the first time I ever went sea fishing was with Unreel Charters and it was AMAZING! I’ve never had so much fun fishing and never thought it was so easy but the skipper definitely makes it seem that way. I have gone with Unreel Fishing Charters multiple times and will continue to do so because it makes a great difference when the skipper loves what he does and 100% cares for his customers’ satisfaction.

Been out on Unreel Fishing a number of times and it is always a pleasure you couldn’t find a charter who works harder to find where the fish are, the most recent trip we caught just about everything whiting, pinkies, trevally, even Gummy’s it was awesome thanks again to the team at Unreel Fishing!!!

I’ve been out fishing with James too many times!! Always great company. He’s a true fisherman, and doing this for the love of fishing. Works really hard to find the fish, and I never go home without a feed. James probably hates me because I keep hassling him for fishing trips almost every week.

I have fished with James onboard Unreel Fishing Charters on a number of occasions now, Although I have my own boat, it is so much easier to just roll up and go with him. I find him to be a very nice bloke and easy to get along with, But more importantly he has an incredible way of getting us onto whatever fish we are targeting. I never imagined before going with Unreel Fishing Charters that there were so many good fish in Port Phillip bay or Western Port Bay and I have now experienced the best. On different trips we have caught the bag limit of Snapper, King George Whiting, and Calamari. On one trip I also caught a huge 6ft long gummy shark and then he took us for a great catch of whiting afterwards. Without any doubt some of my best fishing memories are of fishing on Unreel Fishing Charters and wish to recommend them to anyone! P.S James has also helped me with my own boat and given me some great advice and also GPS marks and is always happy to try and get me and my mates onto fish when I am in my own boat which has helped me to catch heaps more than I used to before!
