PORT PHILLIP BAY & THE RIP

Covering nearly 2000 Sq KMs, Port Phillip Bay is the entrance to Australia’s busiest port and home to around 3.5 Million people along its shores. Many people each year visit Queenscliff and Sorrento for the fishing and various activities offered in the nearby surrounds.

Surprisingly shallow in places, with half of the bay less than 8m in depth, but also lined with some deep drop offs and channels, making it a fisho’s paradise. Home to some big Snapper, plentiful Whiting, Flathead, Squid, Australian Salmon and a huge variety of reef fish.

At the entrance to the bay is the notorious Rip.  Regarded as one of the most dangerous entrances in the world for inexperienced and novice skippers, it also sports some fantastic fishing. At just 3km wide and up to 90m deep, with tidal flows reaching up to 8 knots, it can bring on Australian Salmon in huge numbers, Barracouta, King Fish and other good fighting fish.

BASS STRAIT

Around 240km wide and averaging around 50m deep. Having several islands along its width, deep sea drop-offs at either end and a meeting point of currents from the Southern Ocean and Pacific Ocean, it produces some fantastic off shore fishing and is one of the primary reasons Fishing from Queenscliff or Sorrento is such a popular choice. Mako & Thresher Sharks highlight the season and are considered one of the best sport fish in the world.  Seeing a 150kg Mako leap metres into the air should not be missed by not only die-hard fishermen, but even the weekend fisho’s!
