Beach and Surf Fishing

Surf and beach fishing can be an all year round pursuit. Many people stop fishing as Autumn draws to a close, but there is no need. Tasmania's beaches can be superb on those brisk Winter days-especially on the east coast where temperatures are the most mild in the state. It is inexpesive with some excellent value rod, reels and combos available at very low prices. John Orchard and Mike Stevens take a look at this type of fishing that anyone can enjoy.

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

St Helens Report

Fished on Saturday hoping to get on to some Albacore, got to the ramp at 9.30 am, slept in, too many drinks on the Friday night certainly doesn’t help.

Headed to the Binalong Patch, not much happening on the shelf so went back to the 100 metre mark and started hooking up straight away, not albies - only striped tuna, caught a dozen in no time.
Young Jack Seabourne and Bailey had a ball with them as they are good fighters, better than albies but not much good to eat, we kept a few for mako berley for next time.
Fishing time was cut short due to Glen Round getting a treble hook embedded deep in his thumb trying to get hooks out of Jacks fish, so back in at 2 pm to get some medical treatment, he survived the ordeal.
Fishing has been hot the last few weeks at St Helens, a couple of mates of mine have had good days catching big numbers of albies on the 100 metre mark as well as some stripies, also getting some nice blueye trevalla on the Binalong Patch and some Rays Bream which are a rarity and a frost fish which you don’t get very often (have caught a couple before up Eddystone Patch).
All stripies were caught on Mac baits, hope we get some albies next time.
