On the beach

Andrew Richardson.

My best friend Martin and I have been fishing buddies for years. We grew up together at Mole Creek in the state's north and together we have fished for trout for as long as I can remember. We would often venture down to the local creek or ride our bikes to the Lobster River at Chudleigh to try and catch a trout for tea.

Team Lowrance takes top spot at GTS - Round 2

Congratulations to Lowrance Pro Teamer Mark Healey who, fishing as Team Lowrance/Evinrude, took out first place in round two of the Gamakatsu Elite Series in Forster, New South Wales this February.

Healey fishes with dual HDS Gen2 Touch fishfinder/chartplotters, StructureScan® sonar imaging, and a Lowrance SonicHub marine audio system.

“Using the chartplotter, we stored waypoints where we were able to find concentrations of fish. This allowed us to position the boat upwind and drift over the productive fish holding areas, using the coloured trail functions to help line up the drift.”

Upcoming Events

There’s plenty of fishing planned on both sides of the Tasman this March, with a full bag of pro and open fishing competitions on the calendar. To name a few:
