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.

Grants Lagoon, Georges Bay 18/6/2012

Report from Bailey and Nathan Zanetto from Grants Lagoon and Georges Bay at St.Helens.
At Grants, the boys got onto some nice size bream up to 40cm, lost a couple of good ones too. They also got onto some cocky salmon. The fish were caught on Berkley bream prawns & Squidgy wasabi's. In Georges bay,

they caught some good bream on the Berkley bream prawn, some big black back salmon up to 50cm along with a few mullet on softies as well. These fish were caught on the Yep pearl whites...they certainly had a couple of good sessions down there.
