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.

Little Lake 6/1/2013

We decided to have a look up at Little Lake this arvo with Bailey & the Mad Hungarian George. We landed 19 brownies between us, most were caught on the dry with a couple on small wets later on in the day when the wind picked up. Fish were feeding on damsels and dragonflys, jumping out of the water all over the place.

It was very had to catch though, we had to work for what we got. They were cruising very fast, no good casting to where they took off the top as they would be long gone. We had to try and judge which way they headed off and try to cast a metre in front of them and a lot of the time they ignored our offerings.
All of the fish were in good nick, we only kept seven for a feed. Their size was only small, around the 1lb mark. We had a beaut day, sunny with slight southerly breeze,getting a little stronger later on.
