Hi there Manish,

welcome to fishingreminder.
For the best times and days - just check fishingreminder.
Go during the major or minor times and see which work better in Hobart.

Are you fishing from the shore?
I don't know any fishing spots around Hobart. Maybe someone here can point you in the right direction.
Are you trying to catch saltwater fish or freshwater?

Check google maps (sattellite view) for headlands around the area that are accessible by foot and have some good deep water in casting range. If you go out during major or minor times you'll probably see other fisherman around wharfs, headlands or other good fishing spots.

I too have recently started fishing. In Hobart there are many places to fish in the area. Best advice. Find the bait shop i the area and ask them. there is one close by, I know. But right in Hobart is Lake George. A very good spot. And the Brick Yard there is also very good. there are lakes everywhere in that area. We are blessed to have so many fishing spots. Cedar Lake is also a very good spot.
Good Luck.

Contact me if you like.

world wide including your area,
I also use the willy weather app as well, see both links below...Swipe across the whole line ( cut n paste) to go direct to the apps...

Hi Manish,

Welcome to the world of fishing...and welcome to Fishing Reminder.

As the name implies, you can use the Solunar clock to predict the best days and times. You can use email settings to get email reminders.

As for location, I have never been to Tassie. Looking on the map, maybe Errol Flynn Reserve and Short Beach on Marieville Esplanade at Battery Point might be a good choice for a first ever fishing trip. It has what looks like a good beach / sand area. A small creek at the north end. To the south and across the road, is a jetty and what looks like a boat ramp. The small headland looks like it is man made and quite rocky.

So there is creek, sand (beach), jetty and rock fishing all within walking distance. By the looks of it, a pretty good location for a first time ever fishing trip.

Let us know how you go
