The Jewel of the South D'Entrecasteaux Channel

Between the mainland and Bruny Island in the states southeast lies a large stretch of water referred to as the D'Entrecasteaux Channel. "The channel', as it is affectionately known to the locals, is a mecca for both the shore and boat angler. Its numerous bays, points and islands are home for many species, which can be targeted from the shire or out in boats. Flathead, squid, mackerel and pike are amongst the most popular species, but garfish, Australian Salmon, wrasse, Atlantic salmon, cod, barracuda and various shark and ray species are also frequently encountered. It is a designated "Recreational Only" fishing area with no commercial fishing.

Four Springs 24/4/2013

I returned to Four Springs again today for round 2. The curse left today thanks to Vic he told me to use a spin rod to start the day off and when I had caught a fish then I could use the fly rod.
It worked after casting my arm off landed a nice 3 1/2 LB. brown. I then reverted to the fly rod with the orange bead headed nymph and hooked up and all hell broke loose. Vic was running round the boat pulling drogues in and moving rods lifting motors while trying to reach the net.

And oh happy end to the season a 6Lb. brown.
Victor also had a good day with 2 browns of 3LB. and a small rainbow.
It is our favorite lake early and late in the season.
Regards to all Rose and Vic
