Atlantic Salmon At Large

Atlantic Salmon At Large

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.

Huntsmans Lake 18/2/2012

Trev and I spent the afternoon on Saturday fishing Huntsman Lake. We arrived at  12.30 to a perfect overcast day with high expectations that some fish would be rising, after a slow cruise around the lake, not one fish was spotted, so it was away with the fly rods and out with the hard lures.
We started drifting along the western shore of a very low lake, 3rd cast and there was a small fish of about 3/4 of a pound in the boat From then on until “go home time” at 7.00pm it was one hit after another with 19 fish boated for the day, we were getting hit’s every 5 or six casts.

Fishing in about a meter of water, all the fish where caught on the Yep gold bomber and yellow peril.
A mate was with us and he trolled cobra’s all afternoon. ending up with 6 fish.
All the fish where in very good condition and all a pound and under in weight.
Dale & Trev
