AARON HABGOOD    

"Everyone should believe in something. I believe I'll go fishing"

With his larger than life personality Aaron is now one of Australia’s best fishing talents. At the young age of 26 Aaron has achieved more in the fishing world than most keen anglers would accomplish in a lifetime and now Aaron is ready to share all his amazing knowledge and talent to members at the Salt Guide.

Aaron lives and breathes Port Phillip Bay and has been fishing as long as he can remember. What seems to be sheer natural talent is actually a myriad of one percenters learned over a lifetime of fishing and carried out instinctively to find any fish he is targeting and turn the day into a feeding frenzy.

When you’re on the water with Aaron it truly is amazing to watch him switch the fish on and turn a day out in the bay into the fishing trip of a lifetime. Before you know it, you’re heading home with a quality bag of fish on ice ready for the table and your family to enjoy.

Aaron has gained a reputation for consistently catching quality fish in Port Phillip Bay. Both in and outside the heads, Aaron reels in large snapper, mako shark, kingfish, monster gummy shark, quality squid, garfish and, his speciality, King George whiting.

Aaron also enjoys and has great experience in all of our favourite game fish species at the Salt Guide and he travels each season to Eden, Bermagui, Portland and Lakes Entrance to hook big barrels of blue fin tuna, kingfish, swordfish and marlin.

At the Salt Guide we reckon Aaron often spends more time on or in the water than on land and when the season is on you will often find Aaron with flippers and a tank on his back. There is never a shortage of lobster or fresh scallops on his table.

Aaron is ready and willing to impart a lifetime of skill and technique to Salt Guide members so you too can consistently catch your target fish throughout each and every season.

Starting out like any young angler, Aaron grew up fishing with his Dad and 3 brothers. Spending quality time out on the water with his family not only inspired him to make a career out of fishing but made him want to encourage families to get out on the water with their children.

At the young age of 15 Aaron ventured into deeper water and into commercial chartering. He is often commissioned by Fisheries to catch fish they require for catch and release research programs and still runs his own tutorial business “Reds Fishing Adventures”. He is also busy recording a radio show with Patrick Dangerfield. ‘Reel Adventures’ broadcasts on SEN on Saturday mornings from 7.00 am.

Come with Aaron on the Salt Guide journey through life and get ready to catch your preferred species of fish year in year out.
