The pride and joy of Matthew Hunt Fishing Services is the M.V REGGIE. She is fully surveyed to 2C USL Code, and is a 7.4m Clayton Galant powered by newly updated twin 175hp Suzuki outboards. The M.V Reggie is GPS and Sonar equipped with state of the art electronics and also has a fully plumbed toilet on board for your added comfort. Matthew spent many sleepless nights planning customisations he wanted made on the M.V Reggie, so you can be assured that she has been designed specifically to maximise the chance of catching fish without putting client comfort in jeopardy. She is equipped with everything you need to land the big ones from top quality gear to the highly respected Skipper. If you are fishing with the best, you can only expect to use the best - and that’s exactly what you get when you fish with Matthew Hunt Fishing Services. All our fishing trips are chartered out on the magnificent “M.V Reggie”. The vessel is named in memory of the Skipper’s long time fishing pal, ”Reggie”. He was always keen to get on the fish and his performances to coax a pilchard off unsuspecting anglers will always be remembered.

Reggie RIP “Reggie R.I.P 1993—2007"



Matthew's ability as a Skipper is outstanding. Matthew has many qualifications and is not adverse to studying, and making sure he complies with all new legislation. He is qualified to perform Level 2 First Aid, he has held his Coxswain Certificate for well over 16 years. Matthew hit the books again a couple of years ago and achieved his M.E.D Grade 3, Master Class 5 (upto 200nm) and Skipper 3, which is a legal requirement when targeting the BIG Southern Blue Fin Tuna offshore. 

Matt is no stranger to fishing! Growing up as the son of Rex Hunt has ensured a solid love for the fishing available in Victoria. Matt takes great pride in being able to share his knowledge to help you have a great day's fishing, wherever you may join him. Matthew has successfully been fishing the waters of not only Victoria, but most of Australia pretty much all of his life.

If he could spend his days doing one thing, it would be chasing Blue and Striped Marlin up on the south coast of NSW. He has been doing this for the past 20 years and never tires of taking friends out to experience the wonders of Game Fishing. Regardless of how long the seasons last or how many days he has spent on the water, you can be sure that when a season has finished, and most others are taking holidays and relaxing, Matt will be found on the water somewhere, doing what he loves - FISHING!.
