Tidal Talk August 2001

August is birthday month at my place. My wife Helen and two of our three children all raise the same question at the same time - what to get them as gifts.  A new fly rod for Helen? a nice reel for Sam? and a new fly line for Winston? Now that's got possibilities! Might also result in more time to go fishing - alone.
 Speaking of birthdays, the 17th of June marked the eighth year for the recreational fishing management section in the government's Fisheries unit.
That was when Greg Double and I started working together  to help manage and improve the recreational fishery.  So...in eight years, what have we achieved apart from the "odd grey hair" becoming the odd black one?

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

Cramps Bay Report 11/8/2012

I headed up to Cramps Bay (Great Lake), with my boy Jared this morning.
Left home around 6am and was on the water & fishing by around 7.15ish.
Using Yep black n gold flappers we landed 7 trout, most being browns with the exception of a lone rainbow.
We fished on along the western shore using 1/8th jig heads in around 1.5 to 2 metres of water. Retrieves were very slow,... keeping the plastic along the bottom for as long as possible.
Not much snow left up there at the moment and fish (when cleaned), were extremely pink in colour.
Regards, Mark.
