Magnet Fishing Charters was founded by Jason Farrugia & his partner Julieann DeBrincat. Both Jason and Julie come from boating and fishing families and have been hardcore anglers their whole lives.

When you choose to board Magnets Fishing Charters you are taken and taught by fishermen who love nothing more than being involved in a hot bite!

The guys at Magnet Fishing have an intimate knowledge of all local species as both Jason & Julie grew up in the midst of snapper, Whiting & Gummy sharks. Skipper Jason has a love of marine biology and has studied the life cycles and biology of many Victorian & East Coast species.

With Magnet Fishing Charters not only are you taken on an awesome fishing adventure but also a full learning experience where you will leave a better fisherman!!

With more than 30 years of experience fishing the waters off of Portland and into the Southern Ocean, Skipper Jason Farrugia will work hard to put you onto the fish. Jason has over 30 years of experience fishing for tuna, which has given him intimate knowledge of the best fishing spots off the Victorian coast. As a qualified Master 5 fisher skipper you can rest assured knowing you are in his safe hands as he steers you to bountiful fishing grounds.

Possessing the licence to fish off of the continental shelf, Jason can take you beyond the heavily fished coastline into the deeper waters of the Southern Ocean, teeming in tuna and Albacore at this time of year. Having spent his life on the water Captain Jason knows the Southern Ocean and Bass Strait like the back of his hand, including where the best fishing spots are! Starting in Portland our fishing trips and charters take you through prime fishing grounds to give you the best opportunity to snare a beauty.
