Snapper can be caught on the offshore reefs in August which is a great way to catch the early season fish, before they come into Western Port Bay and Port Phillip Bay. Heading offshore for these amazing fish, we launch from Stony point and head out past Flinders into Bass Strait to find some fantastic rubble grounds and reefs to catch these beauties. By booking the Snapper Fishing Charter Book Boat product with the right weather conditions, a bag full of snapper fun can be had. We then run 5hr Charters through September

September is when we really begin catching Snapper. Early season snapper inside Western Port and Port Phillip Bays begins in September. The key is to know where and why they are there. A lot of people have trouble finding these early season fish which are usually of a larger size than the snapper you find through October to December. AFL Grand final day (late September) is the usual kickoff day for so many anglers and you can find fish in Western Port Bay up to 10kg.
Why do snapper move into Port Phillip and Western Port Bay in September? The answer is to spawn.
