While most anglers have been fishing western Victoria for the SBT, there have been a good number of anglers fishing the south-eastern coast of Tasmania at Eaglehawk neck. Customer Joe fished last week around the ‘Hippo’ – Hippolyte rocks, where SBT to 30kg were caught on Halco laser pro hardbodies – with the King Brown colour being the best.

Another local angler, Andrew managed quite a rare catch out from Eaglehawk neck while targeting SBT. Using a 24kg Penn Senator outfit, Andrew landed this 225kg broadbill swordfish, which is an awesome swordfish for anywhere, let alone the second ever landed on rod and reel in Tasmania.
