FISHING HOT SPOTS
Bluey’s Boat Hire has a long tradition stretching back over 100 years. The pictures que Mordialloc region has been a favourite action centre for generations with an abundance of fish species all year round. The team at Bluey’s can give you some great tips on where to go, what is biting as well as the best bait and tackle to use.
Five Famous reefs are within 5-15 minutes by boat. Try your luck at the Pinnacles, Arty, Muscles, Deep Drop and Old Faithful.
It takes only 5-10 minutes to get to this amazing reef that is just 500 metres from shore. Drift over the reef and you may get a glimpse of the giant rock structures that holds some massive fish all year round. The Pinnacles claim a few hooks and sinkers but it is well worth the effort.
A few years ago Arty was created by the construction of an artificial reef that has seen fish move into the area in great numbers. About 10-15 minutes driving time in your boat will put you right in the spot to catch some hungry reef dwellers.
Right on the edge of our hire zone is a recently closed giant Mussell farm that we fondly call Muscles. You will need all your strength if you hook onto the monsters that lurk around the area looking for a feed in the submerged mussel bed structures.
If you motor directly out for 10-15 minutes the water depth will get deeper until you reach Deep Drop which is the magic 15 metre mark. Some seriously big fish are caught at Deep Drop, especially on early mornings in calmer conditions.
The secret of Mordialloc is Old Faithful that is just 5 minutes by boat and very easy to find. Most years the biggest fish of the season is caught right here and we recommend always leaving enough time to drop in a line.
