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.

Lakes Report

Decided to take my old mate “Roundy” for a drive up to the lakes today.
I didn’t take boat as forecast was crap, just went for a bit of a look with a couple of soft plastic rods just in case we wanted to have a fish.
Went into Little Lake, it was quite high after all the rain.
We fished for about an hour for little result, I managed one and Roundy had a couple follows.

As it was very quiet here, we decided to head over to the Great Lake and have a fish from the western side of Canal Bay because the wind was blowing off shore here.
Roundy caught a nice brown; I did not get a touch, (fished here for an hour and a half).
So all in all not much to report, we had a good drive though, next time.
PS. Also sent you a couple of pictures from Nathan Zanetto with his first Great Lake brown that he caught a few days ago.
Also a picture of some nice King George Whiting that they caught today at St.Helens.
