Mr Flathead” offers family-friendly fishing tours out of Hobart, Southern Tasmania. Fish the best local bays or just go sightseeing on the water.

Treat yourself, family and friends to some well-earned leisure time and come aboard “Mr Flathead” for a memorable fishing and sightseeing trip with a qualified and experienced local guide who knows all the “HOT SPOTS” and beautiful sights that the locals commonly refer to as “Paradise”.

Just 15 minutes from Hobart’s airport en route to historic Port Arthur and you are there – at Tasmania’s gorgeous southern beaches, one of Australia’s best kept secrets. With the majestic Mt Wellington as a backdrop, spend your morning cruising the pristine waterways of Frederick Henry Bay, Norfolk Bay and Storm Bay taking in the breathtaking unspoilt scenery of Tasmania’s southern beaches – Seven Mile Beach, Park and Carlton Beaches, Five Mile Beach with its picturesque sand dunes…

All waterways on tour are classified as “smooth and sheltered”, making this an ideal family-friendly fishing charter or just a relaxing day fishing with mates.

Main target species are flathead and Australian salmon, with regular catches of gummy shark, gurnard, sand whiting, squid, and more...

Let “Mr Flathead” do all the hard work as you reel in your catch – you’re sure to bag a good feed of “flatties”. The humble flathead is Tasmania’s most abundant species of fish but with a growing reputation as a top quality table fish, it never fails to satisfy, be it crumbed, battered, baked, or just pan-fried “nude”. Have your catch cleaned, filleted, and put straight on to ice as you continue to try for that “BIG ONE”!

If we get lucky, we may see one of the regular visitors to these waterways - maybe a playful pod of dolphins, a seasonal southern right whale, a shy fairy penguin, a mass of migrating shearwater or a visiting seal.

So do yourself a favour and join “Mr Flathead” for an enjoyable and uniquely Tasmanian fishing tour.
