If someone had suggested to me 10 years ago that we would experience ‘whiting fever’ and see anglers catching King George whiting up to 60cm long in Tasmania I would have put it down as a bit of wishful thinking — I guess things change.

Here is a typical scenario in my shop as November approaches. I am in my Tackle Shop working as usual when the phone rings.

Me: Good morning this is St Helens Bait and Tackle.

Caller: Hi, me and a few buddies are heading down on the weekend and wondering if the KG whiting are running?

I don’t get ‘do you ever catch any?’ or ‘are there whiting in the bay?’ Now there is the expectation of a whiting season every year and I am receiving call, after call, after call.

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
