Netting must stop

Today I have witnessed commercial fisherman at Godfrey's Beach in Stanley dragging nets and catching a very large quantity of salmon.
Over the last couple of days my family and other locals and tourists have been enjoying blackback and cocky salmon that have been caught along the beach at Godfrey's very close to the shore, but today (14th June, 2011) we discovered commercial fisherman with a beach seine net, the same commercial fisherman that caught salmon in the Cam River, loading up fish in a 4-by-8 foot boxer trailer and their 4WD.
I believe this is not fair for the recreational fishers of Stanley,

When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing - tasfish.com

A Call for articles - Just a reminder

Tasfish is looking for article contributions.
Currently there are over 2000 article - from "I caught a fish today" ... to essay length documentation of multi day sagas!

So, it's still summer, the fish are biting (we hope!) and what better thing to do help our fishing community than to send Mike an email telling him about your big adventure.

Please include a picture. It may take 24 hours for the article to publish. Or maybe 5 minutes! It depends on how busy you make me. Accept that as a challenge.

Seriously, in restoring the web site, I noticed a great history of past articles. Fishing stories as far as the eye can see. Contributions have "dried up" in recent years. Currently there are 396 articles about Lakes http://www.tasfish.com/articles but IFS, DPIPWE, MAST and Peak Bodies is catching up! We mustn't let the bureaucrats win ....

So, get fishing ... then get writing and send them in to Mike.

Cheers,

The latest Tas Fishing and Boating News is out now.

This edition will be May-July

From this issue we are changing the magazine schedule to five issues a year.
I have been at this job for over twenty years now and this seems a good way to have a little bit of a break.
We will combine three issues between February and July into two when fishing can be a little quieter.
Nothing else will change.
There will be no less news or stories — most editions will bigger. Since its inception over 20 years ago the readership has never dropped off and the website www.tasfish.com gets huge visitation. If you are ever looking, or asked for fishing information take a look there. It has an amazing backlog of stories. Anything on Tasmanian fishing will be hiding in the huge archives

New publishing schedule will be:

Aug-Sept; Oct-Nov; Dec-Jan; Feb-April; May-July;

  • Learning to Fly Fish — Frank Fisher
  • Canning Fish – A Taste Sensation — Michal Rybka
  • Dressed to Kill — Steve Starling
  • Jurassic Bream — James Sinnamon
  • Garfish time
  • Game On — Kelly Hunt
  • Tamar Elephant Fish – Searching for Elle — Matt Sherriff
  • Marine Fisheries News

What has happened to Tasfish

Well firstly, we survived the great Hack and Crash of 2016 ... Thanks to support from 41stdegree and relocation to Netvirtue we are now better, stronger and more informative than ever ! NetVirtue supplied incredible support in the re-construction and restoration of the site.

  • All back issue articles are now available. Instead of being collected as "Issue 95", articles are now collected together according to their topic. Have a look at Articles in the menu, to the left of where you are reading. This is a link to all of the articles
  • Articles have an assciated "tag" to make searching easier. Some categories now include a google map, for example, look at Lakes. Here is a list of all the "tags"
  • If you should accidentally type http://www.tasfish.com.au it will work ! But as usual, stick to http://tasfish.com
