Trout tips - from tackle shops

Presented from Issue 105, August 2013

We did a bit of a runaround Tasmania’s tackle stores to see what their tips for the first month or so of the tackle season were. We asked what the top three places to fish were, plus lures, flies, baits and a few other things.
Here is a rundown on their answers Whenever, and wherever you fish - anywhere, or for any fish in the world - ask the locals and especially ask at the local tackle store. They know what was caught today, yesterday and on what.

Moorlands Beach

We fished Moorlands Beach on Sunday fishing from 10am till 6pm finding it a tough day, coming off a week of daddy day care I was up for a challenge and took the strong northerly on it's stride only to land 1 flat head at 2pm of 29cm.  Fishing beside a gutter I kept my hopes high as the tide started to rise a bit and my burley  trial started to bring in the fish. 

Weymouth Easter 2012

We were invited to Weymouth for a couple of days over the Easter break to stay at a friend’s shack. The plan was to go after some flathead on the first day and a Mako the next. We arrived about lunch time on Friday and got the gear ready.

Bicheno Report

Went after a few tuna off the coast at Bicheno  today, had a great day out in the salt for a change, boating over twenty albacore with a couple of mates along with a good feed of quality flathead. The weather was quite good with a slight south east wind blowing but also quite bright but all in all just a great day with plenty of action....catch up soon.

Swansea Report 18/3/2012

We went to Swansea this morning, leaving home at 7am, ...home at 3pm with our quota.
Sorry , not a lot of pictures, but I was flat out cleaning fish and didn't get a chance to take many photos.

Smithton 5/2/2012

We headed to Smithton on Friday for a buck's party fishing trip. We put two boats in the water at 3pm and fished until dark.
We hooked into around a dozen nice size gummy sharks, an elephant fish and three 5kg snapper.
It was definitely one of the best fishing trips I've ever had.
Thanks Norm and family for the accommodation, the awesome food and everything else. Cheers
President Stu.

Waterhouse Report

We headed to the shack at Blackman's Lagoon on Wednesday and stayed through to Sunday. Headed out on Blackman's in the tinny for a couple of hours, bagging a 3lb brown trout in good condition on a black and gold T-tail.
On Thursday, Jonny and I headed out on the sea in the afternoon at South Croppies. We caught 58 flathead, 3 undersize gummies and a squid in a 3 hour stint. 

Don Heads Squids

Took the kids down the end of Coles beach road, (on the rocky point),  to try to catch a feed of squid over the reef.
Just as the sun disappeared behind Don Heads they came on the bite and we landed 10 good size one's in around an hour using squid jigs.

North West Coast Report 22/10/2011

I recently spent four days up the North-West Coast with my wife and two children to do some maintenance around out property at Forest. After catching up with a mate (Marcus) who is a local on Friday night for a sensational BBQ, we put together a plan
