Atlantic Salmon At Large

Atlantic Salmon At Large

Recently Atlantic salmon seems to be a very hot topic amongst local anglers, especially those in the south of the state in the D'Entrecasteaux area. Northern anglers should take a close look at the Tamar as there are opportunities here as well.  
The recent "great escape" has provided a perfect opportunity for fresh and saltwater anglers alike to experience some truly memorable sport. Tasmania's pristine, clean and cool waters are the perfect nursery for the Atlantic Salmon and as our local fish farms produce more and more fresh quality seafood it is a fact that there are going to be tangible consequences.

Tamar River Report 6/1/2013

Well, I am quick to post success up in my reports, ....but you don't often hear so much of the failures (of which there are a few don't worry!) Given the calm weather this weekend, we decided to get our boat, aptly named "The Olympic torch"  (because it never goes out),.. out of the shed. Our hope was to get the kids onto a few flathead.

We were originally going to go to Swansea but given the fires, we thought it best to keep out of the authorities way and also partly out of respect for those affected. Saturday was spent ski biscuiting on the Tamar, whilst today was spent chasing a few flathead around the Bell Buoy Beach area.
Jacob drove us out and we started off catching a couple of quality fish, not long after it all went quiet, ...perhaps it was the pirates that caused the problem (see photo.)
Not even enough to feed the family....Gee we struggle on the Tamar river.
My two girls couldn't make today's trip as they had to work, but on the plus side, It was great to catch up with President Jim and Virginia McKenna.
Back to work tomorrow, bugger.
Regards - Todd
