Sea-run trout fishing this year got off to a cracking start in most areas, with the majority of anglers employing nearly every trout fishing technique to secure fish in local estuaries statewide.
Even those anglers fishing the "off-season" lower down in our estuaries for sea-trout commented on the number of fish moving in early August.
Hi Todd, still enjoy reading the fishing and info news sent in by everybody. Thank You.
Went fishing with my son at Weymouth this morning, the first 15 minutes we caught 1 cod and 2 very nice size Flathead ...guess what I'm having for dinner tonight?

The weather has finally given me the motivation to go for a fish; Trev was pretty keen to give the bream a go as well, so we headed off to the Swan River to give them a go. We arrived there around 11.30 this morning to a slight breeze and soon had the boat on the water.
We are getting quite a few enquiries about the various rock lobster season opening dates and whether fishers can transit between open and closed areas. I’ve attached a flyer here. The information is also on the DPIPWE website at:
We went around the back of Maria Island on the 17th of August , I was with Paul (my boyfriend), Gretel (my daughter) and Esta (our dog). My dad had been round there the weekend before and did okay, so we thought we'd try it out. We hadn't been on a fishing trip on the new boat (a 35 Caribbean) so seemed a great place to go on such a beautiful day. We were using soft plastics, although I'm not sure which ones.

Hi mike, thought you might be interested in seeing what my hubby Chris caught on a line a few weeks ago just off Port Sorell. We took a couple of pics then returned it back to the waters. We hadn't caught or seen one of these before but researched and found it was a saw shark.
Here is a starting point for a little research. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saw_shark

After few discussions about last weeks sensational Squid fishing, my dad was dead keen to head to the coast for some action. Whilst he doesn’t mind a feed of Calamari now and again he had been drilling me about the Garfish situation and how that was faring in Georges Bay.
The winter months, as a matter of fact anywhere from April to September, are prime time in St Helens for Garfish and the reports I had been hearing over the last few weeks of plentiful catches and big gars had me and the old man ready for a session.

Recently Atlantic salmon seems to be a very hot topic amongst local anglers, especially those in the south of the state in the D'Entrecasteaux area. Northern anglers should take a close look at the Tamar as there are opportunities here as well.
The recent "great escape" has provided a perfect opportunity for fresh and saltwater anglers alike to experience some truly memorable sport. Tasmania's pristine, clean and cool waters are the perfect nursery for the Atlantic Salmon and as our local fish farms produce more and more fresh quality seafood it is a fact that there are going to be tangible consequences.
