Joe Farr Fishing Charters

Joe Farr Fishing Charters takes small groups on bay and ocean fishing trips from Sorrento into Melbourne's most diverse and exciting fishing region, Southern Port Phillip Bay and Bass Strait.

Joe aims to provide a thoroughly enjoyable fishing charter experience, & keeps numbers small for plenty of fishing space. Our charter boat 'Seamphony' is a spacious, clean and modern custom built fishing platform. All experience levels are welcome, from beginners to experienced anglers looking to refine some skills and get onto some good fishing.

Your half day fishing trip goes for 5-6 hours. Longer trips can be arranged. You can join with others or your group can book the boat privately for a fishing trip unrivaled for comfort, space and quality.

Your skipper Joe has an unsurpassed understanding of how to fish this unique area. He is a full time fisherman here, with an uncanny fishing ability and understanding of local fish species' habits & the conditions required for targeting what you'd like to catch. His mellow personality and unique ability to get along with all walks of life gives his charters a relaxed & enjoyable atmosphere that, combined with the benefits of taking home your catch, keep many an angler coming back time and again.

Trips are perfect for fishermen who don’t want to battle bigger groups for fishing space, corporate groups, couples, families (kids love Joe's company), and small groups who want to learn to fish or just relax, have FUN and enjoy fishing or sightseeing along the wild Australian coastline.
Species commonly targeted are King George Whiting, Southern calamari, snapper, flathead, gummy shark, Australian salmon, yellowtail kingfish, tuna, trevally, mackerel & more. Choose to catch and release, or to take home your catch which Joe will professionally clean and fillet for you, ready for the grill!
