This last Sunday 29th September saw us bagging our first Snapper of the season down at Barwon Heads on Big Blue with skipper Phil at the helm. Those 33 years experience fishing the Bay and Bass Strait give him the optimum advantage over all the others!! It’s a good sign that we’re getting a […]

So another weekend passes by and here at Rip Charters we had a pretty good weekends fishing. This very decent sized Gummy was landed on Saturday afternoon by a lucky group of Bucks that we picked up at Queenscliff.

As we are now at the half way mark of Winter, we are receiving quite a lot of calls enquiring about our Bucks Trips. Spring is the beginning of the wedding season as well as the fishing season, so perfectly timed to book that all important ritual for the big occasion, ‘The Bucks Party’. We specialise in groups large and small, we service the Mornington Peninsula and the Bellarine Peninsula, so can depart from either Sorrento Pier or Queenscliff Boat Harbour. Usually either a 4 or 5 hour trip, we can head out into Bass Strait and target the Spring Snapper coming in as well as the Gummy Sharks and Tiger Flathead. Or simply stay in the bay on the shorter trips and target Bay Snapper, King George Whiting, Flathead and Calamari. We use one boat for the smaller groups or utilising 2 boats for the larger groups, the Mornington Peninsula offers the best of both worlds for fishing and Bucks Party’s.
Rip Runner has had a great run of fishing recently. With all this fantastic Winter weather we have had several opportunities to head out fishing. A few of our Chinese clients have been booking regularly, departing Sorrento Pier and most times getting out into Bass Strait where the target species has been Blue Throat Wrasse, Leather Jackets, Sweep and Perch. Winter time is a particularly good time for these species.
