Experienced Fishing Charters in Western Port Marina

Are you looking for a fishing charter where the owner and crew are fishermen themselves and know how to get the best possible result? If so, call Ace Fishing Charters today!

Experienced Fishers

Ace Fishing Charters was established over 25 years ago by Steve Johnston, who still owns and operates the business today. Our aim has always been to offer people a chance to enjoy the exhilarating experience from the moment they step onto one of our boats.

The Best Fish

We target specific species of fish because of both their fighting and eating qualities. We are possibly the longest established fishing charter business under the one ownership operating in Western Port, and we depart from the beautiful Western Port Marina, Hastings, south-east of Melbourne.

The Perfect Place

With over 35 years’ experience in chartering and fishing in the area, Steve has intimate and expert knowledge of the bay and knows exactly how, when and where to fish for the very best fishing charters possible.

What Fish Can I Catch?


Depending on the time of year, our target fish in the Western Port include the magnificent, fighting Snapper, the beautiful King George Whiting and the big, awe-inspiring, Gummie Shark. We also run fishing trips which go further out to sea and into Bass Strait where we chase the lightning fast Mako Shark and go bottom fishing for pinkies, Tiger Flathead, Gummies and many varieties of reef fish.

Our Boats

We have two magnificent 13 metre Randal commercial vessels fully surveyed for passenger carrying by Transport Safety Victoria on Behalf of AMSA. Both vessels are equipped with all the necessary safety equipment to ensure the safety of passengers and crew as well as all the required electronics to help us find the fish.
Both crafts have a roof and side curtains for your comfort, a barbecue and toilet facilities, seating and plenty of room for large parties. We regularly provide fishing charters and tours for individuals, families, schools, clubs, church groups and corporate events, for up to 40 people catered for over the two boats.

Catch What You Want


“Amazing crew and vessel. Tom and Anthony were super stars; so helpful and funny. The six-hour trip was so worth it, we pretty much hit bag limits on KGW! Will definitely be back for more. Thanks!”
