Fishing on the Wild Side

Fishing on the Wild Side

Mike Fry doesn’t only live on the Wild Side of Tasmania, but also goes fishing in probably the wildest boat ever to troll for trout—certainly in Tasmania. 
When your mate says ‘What are you doing tomorrow, want to come up the Gordon for the night?’ it would be pretty hard to say anything else except “you bet” and start checking out your tackle box and packing your overnight bag. But if your mate was Troy Grining and he wanted to give his new 52ft, high speed cruiser a run across Macquarie Harbour, test the new onboard dory with a chance of landing a nice Gordon River Brown you would have to feel privileged. I didn’t say anything about getting on my hands and knees and kissing his feet…just having a lend of ya’ but I did feel very appreciative.

Lake Augusta West 13/3/2012

Hi all, we fished Lake Augusta West today with Bailey and Jack Shennan, on our way home from Lake King William. There was a S.W wind blowing about 15 to 20 knots with sunny periods. We caught 13 fat trout, one being a rainbow which Jack landed.

All of the fish were caught on softies, Bailey & Jack had a go with the fly rod,... but not this time.
We had plenty of hits, follows and lost several. The lake is very low, with the motor hitting the bottom of lake bed a few times.
We kept these fish as we wanted a few for the smoker and we have been releasing most of the fish we had previously caught on other trips, as you can see, a top weekend was had.
