I'm Hooked Fishing Charters operates from CARRUM, VIC, 3197
I’m Hooked Fishing Charters is run by Mal, a qualified charter operator who began fishing at a very young age with his Grandpa. Mal would fish at Carrum while his Grandpa collected boat launching fees. His dad would also take him to local creeks to catch bream and mullet. Mal’s journeys have taken him up the coast where he lived in Merimbula where he started fishing from Eden to Tathra catching his first Marlin off the coast. Mal is extreme and passionate about his fishing. At the age of 18 he caught his first Snapper which took his fishing to another level. Fishing Port Philip Bay, Western Port Bay’s, Port Albert, Warrnambool and Portland and living locally, his passion is to target Snapper, Gummy Shark’s, Flathead, Sharks, Kingfish, Whiting and Squid.
In 2021, Mal decided to upgrade his charter boat in 2021. It needed to provide more space, more comfort and provide shelter during inclement weather conditions and comfortably handle larger waves without getting customers wet. The addition of a fixed toilet was also important for those long days out on the water. It features: * Ample space for 9 fisherman * Ice boxes for fish, bait and also cold drinks * Comfortable seating for 9 people * Toilet – Under cabin (closed door for privacy) * Night lights for early morning or late night fishing * Large overhead canopy for shelter from the weather * Single hull, twin motors for a comfortable day in the bays or on Bass straight
I'm Hooked Fishing Charters operate in Port Phillip Bay, Westernport Bay or on Bass straight depending on the season. There are several options available and these are selected according to the catch you are looking for. As Mal spends a lot of time on the water, he is able to guide anglers to the best departure location for the day.
