The area provides Snook, Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Sharks, Flounder and all the other species that inhabit the beautiful waters of Melbourne.

Once the catching starts, your captain will know which fish are legal to keep and all the local laws of how many each person can harvest. If you prefer to release then, that's okay too. Once the trip expires, you head back to the original dock where your captain will clean and prepare your catch for you to take with you. Prepare this does take a bit of time if a lot of fish are caught, which cannot be done on the water.
