Heading to Port Arthur
« on: August 21, 2021, 10:25:39 pm »
Hi guys heading to Port Arthur on Thursday with the boat and wanted to take the wife and kid out. Any where nice and calm to get squid or a feed of flatties?  We are hopeful to get out around Tasman but I need a back up plan if it's to rough. We are staying at the nrma cabin park

Friday was a bit rubbish. But we fished Port Arthur Bay for some flattys and jackals morning.
Saturday I headed to Tasman and got on to the tuna and some really good flathead up to 560mm
But I lost my phone in 100m of water off Tasman Island so no photos until I was home

Great post. Sorry about your phone, been there, got the T shirt!

About your 560mm Flathead. I always thought that you only got small flats in Tassie. That is all that I ever caught on charters from Dodges Ferry.

Are you sure that 560 was the length of one fish or the combined total of several?  laugh1 laugh1 laugh1 laugh1 laugh1

Seriously, that is a good fish. What type of Flat was it?

The boss and I have booked to come down in December if the gates are open. Reddory and I have tentatively planned some fishing for Trout and possibly a charter down to Eaglehawk so instead of going for Tuna we may just switch to fishing for Flathead. can't wait for that.

Cheers

Was really good in deeper water I often get bigger flatties  sometimes it can just take a bit of finding.  Just the normal old sand flathead

Hey Paikea

Often catch 600mm+ flatties in 50-60m off Buoy in the Boat southeast of Maria from late Oct thru Nov. Mostly king flathead and the occasional good size gummy grin1
