Kingfish charter recommendation

Postby snorkly » Sat Jan 14, 2017 10:51 am

Hi all, I've been out to kingfish charters twice in the past. Both were exclusively using jigging techniques. Nothing wrong with that (except you'll feel very tired after 6-8 hours of jigging) but at times, if its not working obviously you gotta change your method! So is there any charter recommendation around Melbourne who'll do some live baiting etc. when its necessary? Thanks.

Rip Charters.
Spoke to Tobes, (who skippers rip runner), a while back. He said they mix it up, as the kingies can hammer one thing one day, another the next.
They live bait, jig, and use surface lures if needed.
Got couta..?

Magnetic fishing charters were also advertising a mix of techniques for kingfish

Going off what He said, they can be a pain. Somedays only green knife jigs seem to work, other days live squid are the go and so on. The disadvantage for the punter is, kingy charters are, (or at least were 2 years ago), 8 hour trips. That includes picking up the punters from sorrento and queenscliff, go and targetting squid, then targetting yakkas, then going into the rip, and if necessary, around to cape shanck, or the reef off barwon heads.

Thanks Carl, I've just spoken to RIP charters but they only taking groups for kingie charters (not individuals like me). Woolly Bugger, instead of "Magnetic fishing charters" can it be "Magnet fishing charters" which own by bloke called Jason and its runs from Werribee? Thanks

He just said to me minimum 7-8 people group he is accepting bowl, He recommended Joe Farr but haven't spoke him yet. If its not him I'll probably call Chris from Gone fishing at Queenscliff!

Bugger, shows how out of touch I am with the guys down there..Just spoke to Steve, (does the pier refueling for a few of the boats), He told me Tobes is only doing occasional trips for Phil now, some guy called 'Crackers'is skippering rip runner...
