Fishing in East Coast Tasmania, Australia

A holiday combined with fishing on the east coast.
Brought along a handy telescopic with the intention of landing some unique species. 
Just stopping and fish by the shore. Can't do a holiday without fishing the local water...

Ultra beautiful shoreline at your doorstep. Can you resist not soaking your line??

In Tasmania no fishing licence is required. It is good to visit the local tackle shop for some advice. Feel free to approach them and tell them your fishing intention and they will be more willing to share some tips and even their fishing spots. 

As recommended I was asked to gear up with a running sinker rig. Shown below was the setup I used.

The results were satisfying. 

Landed a big Stingray at Swansea. Fight lasted for 30 minutes.

Nice size Bream at Swansea. 

Leather Jacket at St Helen. St Helen is also the best offshore sport fishing destination. 

The traveled route and fishing location. 

Took a plane from Melbourne to Hobart, Tasmania. From there one can easily rent a car at the airport (Pre-booking is adviced). We drove up all the way to the north, travelling along the east coast. You can choose to return your vehicle at any of the departing airport giving you lots of flexibility for planning your itinerary and inserting some fishing into your trip. 

Free feel to drop me an email if you have some questions, will be glad to share. 

Have fun and keep fishing!!
