Surf Fishing - Something for all the Family

Surf fishing is one of the most enjoyable recreational exploits now being enjoyed by a growing number of Tasmanian anglers and lets face it, a small State surrounded by water, Tasmania has more than its fair share of surf fishing opportunities for the avid angler. Surf fishing is a family oriented sport that doesn't require the cost of a boat and can be  enjoyed by the whole family; even those who don't like fishing can derive much pleasure  from a relaxing day at the beach whilst the fishing enthusiasts in the family do their thing. For those that haven't yet turned their attention to the surf, lets look at what tactics can  help to make this day at the beach a bit more re-warding and also at the gear you will need to maximize your success.

Lady Lake 5/11/2011

Took a stroll up Higgs track Saturday to have a look about and of course had to wet a line, the walk up the mountain is just under 4 km and a bit testing but the scenery is breathtaking, it took Ally and I 1 hour 45 minutes to get up and 40 minutes to get back down.

As you can see in the photo's there is a great little hut there that would make a great base camp for fishing the Chudleigh Lakes region, will being doing that later for sure.
Lady Lake is maybe 100 metres long and wide and has a creek in and out, the water is crystal clear so needs to be approached very carefully, I only fished it for half an hour, because I spent too much time exploring (I was like a kid in a candy store) and failed to turn a fish but did see 3 rise, would love to have been there on evening, maybe next time will spend the night. And wander a bit further the next day.

Worth a look guys, Tight Lines
