Garden Island Report 4/11/2012

I took Bailey and his mate Jack Seabourne for a late arvo fish down at Garden Island on the Tamar River. We wanted some salmon for the smoker. There were plenty of salmon about busting up on the bait fish schools. The boys had a ball catching around 40 I reckon. We kept a couple dozen for the smoker, that's plenty. They caught fish on Dales salt & pepper softies and Bailey caught a few on small surface poppers.

We hope to head up top tomorrow so will let you know how we go there.
