Updated: Sep 24, 2018

Exciting News!

The STC committee has once again organised a Light Tackle Southern Bluefin Tuna Trip out of Portland on the weekend of 23rd and 24th of June 2018 for STC Club members. As per our last trip with will be chartering with Matthew Hunt Fishing Services. If past trips are anything to go by this is set to be an exciting weekend.

This will be a light tackle day with an aim to fish 8kg and under. Gear will be supplied by club sponsor Compleat Angler Melbourne, so those who do not have appropriate tackle need not worry.

The emphasis will be on tag and release unless an angler wants to take a potential state, Australian or World Record fish or a suitable fish for the table. A suitable number of tags have been obtained but if you have your own feel free to bring them along.

Maximum anglers per day is 6 with a minimum of 4 to make the day happen. If we get the maximum number the day rate will be $300 per person, however if we only get the 4 anglers it will be $375.

If you are interested in coming along please e-mail the Club on and note whether you prefer to fish the 23rd, 24th or both. Preference will be given to those members who wish to fish both days. Accommodation will be the responsibility of the individual but the Club committee will be happy to help coordinate this.

We look forward to hearing from those members looking to tangle with one of these great fighting fish!

Tight lines,

Your STC Committee


1 - A member’s spot is not confirmed until they have paid a deposit of $300 for the charter to the STC.

2 - The deposit is non-refundable unless you can find another STC member to take your spot.

3 - In the event that Matthew Hunt has to cancel a days fishing due to bad weather (this is unlikely) a full refund of all monies paid for that days fishing will be given.

4 - Any questions via reply email please
