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.

Beautifully coloured wild brown troutEleven Trout Caught In One Hour & Twenty Minutes 3-2-2016

I had around two hours before the wife came home before I had to take her up to the daughters at Cradle Mountain, so I decided to get in a quick session on a small river 10 minutes from home.. Once there I started flicking the little black fury around in the tannin coloured river and had a hit & miss on the second cast. The next little stretch gave up three nice little river browns with the best one going around 290gms and beautifully conditioned too.

 

Knowing I didn't have long in the river I kept working my way upstream flicking the spinner around getting a hit on nearly every cast. After 30 minutes of fishing I had only landed 5 browns from 8 hook ups. I changed over to a copper bladed black fury and that worked a treat as I picked up another 6 browns from just seven hook ups. I also had heaps of hit & misses too. In the 1hr & 20 minutes I was in the river I managed 11 nice little river browns.. I wished I had gone an hour earlier.. I know where I'm heading to at 6.00am in the morning..

cheers
Adrian
