Sea run trout tactics – Craig Vertigan

Sea run trout tactics – Craig Vertigan

During the trout off-season I tend to spend a bit of time chasing bream, to continue getting a fishing fix, and spend time tying flies and dreaming about the trout season to come. It’s a time to spend doing tackle maintenance, stocking up on lures and dreaming up new challenges and goals for the trout season ahead. When the new season comes around I usually spend the first few months targeting sea runners. Sea run trout are simply brown trout that spend much of there lives out to sea and come in to the estuaries for spawning and to feed on whitebait and the other small endemic fishes that spawn in late winter through spring. Mixed in with the silvery sea runners you can also expect to catch resident fish that have the typical dark colours of a normal brown trout as well as atlantic salmon in some of our estuaries that are located near salmon farm pens. Living in Hobart it is quick and easy to do a trip on the Huon or Derwent and is a more comfortable proposition compared to a trip up to the highlands with snow and freezing winds to contend with.

Georges Bay June 13 2001

Hi all. We took Bailey and Nathan for a fish in Georges Bay this afternoon (June 13th) using soft plastics. Fished up near the oyster racks and got onto some nice mullet, cocky salmon and blackback salmon, lost a big trevally right at the boat, hooks pulling free.

Trevally would have been pushing 50cm. All fish were caught on Dale's Yep Tassie Tackle pearl whites and Berkley black and gold T-tails. Conditions were fantastic, clear skies and calm.
