If you want to take your fishing to a whole new level, the waters of Bass Strait offer a truly unique experience. From larger game fish to mako and thresher sharks, these deeper waters provide anglers with the opportunity to explore some of the best game fishing locations in Australia. Here at Gamerec, we offer deep sea fishing trips departing from Melbourne’s seaside havens of Sorrento and Queenscliff.
Approximately 240 kilometres wide and with an average depth of 50 metres, Bass Strait features a number of islands, deep ocean drop-offs and a meeting point of currents created by the merging of the Pacific Ocean and Southern Ocean. These unique conditions equate to an exclusive angling opportunity; the Strait really does deliver offshore angling at its finest. A highlight of the season, mako and thresher sharks populate the area.
Many dedicated anglers believe that these amazing animals represent the pinnacle of sports fishing; a 150 kilogram mako leaping metres into the air is a sight that must be seen to be believed. These sharks require a very specific approach if you’re to catch them; Gamerec’s experienced anglers can provide you with the equipment and advice you need. Alongside these sharks, the deeper water is also home to species such as snapper, whiting, salmon, squid and gummy sharks.
Are you looking for a fishing charter company that offers trips out on the open ocean? With boats large enough to safely navigate Port Phillip Heads, Gamerec provides anglers with the opportunity to explore the wild waters that lie beyond the bay. With a strong understanding of local weather conditions and swell forecasts, we only proceed with our offshore fishing tours when the conditions are amicable.
