Slow down and give the Winter trout waters a try

Leroy Tirant gets beaten by his son and learns a Winter lesson.
There have been many articles over time about fishing in winter. I love targeting Tasmania's fish rich lakes on clear crisp winter days, perhaps almost romanticising it, because it's quite easy once home and warm to forget how really cold it was-and how hard it was to finally find feeding fish. These can be swimming lethargically in 30 feet of water.
Most of my fishing is done from a boat, but occasionally and it seems only in winter, my young bloke and I will wander around the shoreline, mainly for his sake more than mine because he loves discovering things. At five years of age he competently fishes on his own with little instruction from his dad. As with most youngsters though he can become annoyed if he thinks I'm taking over.

When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing - tasfish.com

Arthurs Lake Report 12/1/2014

Hi all had a trip to Arthurs with Derek Poole on Friday after he finished work at 1 pm. We arrived at Jonah Bay about 2pm and up to the cowpaddock by 2.30 pm. We started drifting but there wasn't a lot going on. After about half way through the drift i caught one and boated it. 
A bit further Derek caught one and boated. Not long after he was on again also landed. We moved to another spot where we both had a follow, so decided to move to another area. A bit into the drift I was on and fish landed, moved to another spot where i had a couple of follows dropped one and boated two. We then moved to another spot where I caught three more and dropped one and had a couple more follows. We ended up with nine fish, me with seven and Derek two It turned out a good little session. We were off the water by 6 pm.
Cheers Craig
