The Reel Thing Charters runs the largest vessel running out of Carrum. Perfect for work jollies, parties, and team building, this boat can take up to 10 people fishing at a time! If you’re looking for a corporate Christmas party, this is the boat for you. They depart from Carrum, Melbourne, where Skipper Mark and his deckhand will take you fishing for the prize catch of Snapper, with bycatch of Flathead, Pinkies, Snook, Salmon, Rock Cod and Gummy Sharks. The boat you will be fishing aboard is a 28’ Axium. It is powered by twin Mercury engines and equipped with Garmin and Lowrance electronics. It features a large deck space and live bait tank, as well as a porta pottie. Trips include the use of all fishing equipment and lures. The Reel Thing Charters are run by a friendly and professional crew who love taking new guests out and teaching them the best techniques needed to catch the prized fish species. They offer trips suited to both large and mixed groups and can accommodate your needs whether you are looking for one spot or trips for large groups. During the annual Tuna season from around April to July, The Reel Thing are based out of Portland, Victoria where they offer exciting full day trips.

I took my grandson fishing in November and we had the best time. We didn't catch any fish but the boys on the boat Benny and Scotty were fantastic. They helped my little man bait the hook and really took him under their wing. We had such a great time i am now being hassled every week to go again. We will definitely be back.

I have been out with this charter on several occasions and had the best time. From the time I booked the staff were friendly, went out of their way to help and were very considerate toward my being female. The 'bloke' attitude that comes with other charters was not apparent here as they were very respectful. Thanks to Sharon, Mark & Joel who have put me onto fish every-time. When the fishing was quiet, the conversation and joking about was fantastic. WELL DONE! regards Shazby. PS prices are very very good and I love the mid week specials.
