Tip of the Week

Game Fishing

Tasmanian game-fishing waters stretching from St. Helens in the north, all the way down the east coast to the Tasman Peninsula, are home to more than 20 national gamefish records. During the season the challenges on offer include striped marlin, broadbill swordfish, yellowfin tuna, bluefin tuna, albacore tuna, and mako sharks. Increasingly popular these days is the hunt for mako sharks, a superb gamefish. While St. Helens has the largest charter fleet, Bicheno, the Freycinet Peninsula, and the Tasman Peninsula, are also popular. The St Helens Game Fishing Classic, is the highlight of the year for locals and an increasing number of interstate visitors.
