Striped trumpeter

Jamie Henderson
The fish
Whilst at times here in Tasmania we feel as if we have been left out of some of the more romantic fisheries such as snapper, King George whiting, Spanish mackerel and barramundi we do have a fish that very few other states have in good numbers and that is Latris lineata or the striped trumpeter.

Blackmans ​Lagoon

I headed to Tomahawk on the weekend, and decided to have a fish in Blackmans ​Lagoon on the way down. Arrived at around 1:30ish and got my 3​ ​metr​e​ ​Zodiac off my 4wd with my 2 hp Johnston and headed off, the weather was very bright with 10 knot winds decided to try a Yep golden seducer around the edges. Bang had my first fish on and had this trout on for 15 mins and wasn't sure if it was a brown or a rainbow, but it was a good fish. Got it within 5 metres of the boat and saw the fish and know straight away that's it a really nice fish and could of easily be double figures, but then the hook pulled... Damn!! Kept on fishing for another 30 mins and hooked up a nice rainbow around the 4lb mark and was a very nice solid fish.
