Flinders Island fishing adventure

Shared by

Pack up your hooks, rods and bait for a magnificent day out on the the boat, fishing in the superb waters of Flinders Island.

The waters surrounding the islands are home to many species of fish, where you may find Snapper, Yellowtail Kingfish, Albacore, Striped Trumpeter or Yellowfin Tuna at the end of your line!

Flinders Island is noted as Tasmania's best fishing holiday destination, where you can not only enjoy a day reeling in the fish, but you can also explore the beautiful beaches, cruise the waters and watch the seals swim by.

The island is located 60 kilometres off the north east tip of Tasmania and is the largest of the 52 islands that make up the Furneaux Group that sits between Victoria and Tasmania.

Fishing and farming are important industries to the island – which has a population of around 900 – with fisherman gathering abalone, crayfish and scallops and farmers producing quality meats and wool.

November is a prime time to visit the island with the Southern Rock Lobster (crayfish) season beginning on the fifteenth.

Enjoy a day out on a ten metre Powercat to fish in the warm waters of the Continental Shelf with rods, gear and bait supplied or get in on one of the brilliant fishing packages that could have you taking part in some night fishing and relaxing in a comfortable holiday cottage with delicious breakfasts and lunches.
