Southern Sport and Game Fishing Charters is the realisation of a lifelong dream and a lot of year’s hard work in the Victorian charter industry for owner and skipper Marcus (Baz) Gorman.
Working for over twelve years for two of the leading charter companies in Port Phillip Bay and Bass Strait, I now have the opportunity to offer you a wide range of choices in you fishing experience. Targeting anything from King George whiting, calamari and Flathead to live baiting for the hard fighting king fish in and around the Port Phillip heads and Cape Shank or fly fishing for record Mako sharks.
