A full day fishing charter experience on Tasmania's pristine and scenic East Coast!

The 'Full Day Bay Fishing Charter' departs at 7:30am from the historic seaside town of Swansea on Tasmania's East Coast (only a 90 minute drive from Hobart or Launceston and part of the very popular Great Eastern Drive.) Explore the wonderful waterways and fertile fishing grounds of Great Oyster Bay (a fishing hot spot) under the guidance of our expert skipper Ashley who has been working as a fisherman in this area for over 30 years. The Freycinet Peninsula provides a scenic backdrop for this fishing adventure and an abundance of sealife may see you spotting a migrating whale, playful dolphins, seals and seabirds! You will have the opportunity to fish for a range of species including sand and tiger flathead, Australian salmon - or have some fun catching calamari! This full day fishing charter allows additional time to explore the area and travel further to secluded secret fishing grounds to catch that special fish or a few extra flathead for dinner. We can prepare and package your fish for transport if you would like to take them with you or alternatively catch and release. All of our East Coast fishing charters cater to anglers of all ages and all levels of skill and experience. Equipment, tackle and bait is provided.

"What a terrific day out! Weather and conditions weren't working with us but Ashley Hallam came through and went above and beyond to find us the fish, not only did we have a cracker day out on the water with Ashley we actually bagged out while he filleted our entire catch. Massive thanks to both Ashley and the Owner Shane who organized the whole trip on only a few hours notice."
