Silver Trevally – From the Shore

The silver trevally or Pseudocaranx dentex has to be my most favourite and cherished light tackle species in Tasmania. They are just an awesome little fish to catch, especially if you manage to hook one over that magical fifty centimetre mark! Personally, I began targeting the species many years ago on a variety of baits and artificial lures from a small stretch of beach in Georges Bay. At the time, they were the ultimate sports fish, the very thought of hooking up to one of these fish was enough to keep me saving up for more packets of soft plastics. One of the aspects I really enjoy about targeting trevally is their simplicity to catch. Sure, they aren’t as hard to catch as a big black bream, but at the end of the day, I think everyone would be happy with a large, hard fighting silver trevally. Over the years, I have discovered many trevally holding locations scattered along our coastlines, even up around Burnie! With their awesome fighting abilities and overall beauty, I can understand why the silver trevally is one of the most popular species Tasmania has to offer.

St Patricks River

We had a look at St.Patricks river late this afternoon with Bailey, he was supposed to go fishing with Dale and Trev but Dale was a bit crook so that was the end of that.

When I arrived home around 5pm, Bailey made me take him to the St.Pat’s River instead, so off we went.

Arrived there around 6pm and fished until around 7.30pm, we caught 8 nice little stream brownies, all caught on softies that we cut down to suit the smaller sized trout in this area.

We had lots of hit's, follows’ and lost a few, certainly a nice river to fish close to home.

All fish were released.
