Over Winter I get asked more about garfish than anything else. I know we have monster southern bluefin tuna still hanging around, but the humble little garfish can be a mainstay for anglers.

They are one of Tasmania’s most sought estuarine fish during the cooler months. They are plentiful, great fun to catch and delicious to eat. You don’t need to go zooming around the bay looking for them as they will come to you. Kids love catching them — and so do I.

The cooler months are best, and finds the bigger fish inshore and in many Tasmanian estuaries.

Woods Lake 2/2/2012

I've just received a report from President Mark Tapsell as he was making his way down the mountain from Woods Lake.
Mark told me there was  3092915693451264 duns on the water there today but the fish were only "onceing" and this made for hard fishing.
Never the less he finished up with four and his mate caught two, their condition was excellent with good coloured flesh so they should lend themselves to good eating.
Wind was calm one minute and blowing the next, ...but a great day had all the same.
 Thanks for the call Mark, cheers, President Todd
