Trolling For Trout by Damon Sherriff and Tony Morecroft


Trolling for trout is not a thing that I regularly do. I have done my fair share, but not so much recently. The highlight of my freshwater trolling career was when I won a fishing competition held at Lake Meadowbank in 1998/99. It was with an 8 kg Atlantic Salmon which took out heaviest salmon caught for the season.

6 Bank fishing hotspots!

There is hundreds if not thousands of bank fishing opportunities available in Tasmania, however the poor old bank fisher gets left out in a lot of fishing location articles.

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.

Liawenee Trout Weekend 

The Liawenee Trout weekend was a great success and was attended by a large number of anglers from all around the state. It was great to see so many brown trout in the fish trap and it proves what a fantastic resource the Great Lake is for trout fishing all around the state.

What will the weather do? Etc etc. The truth is, although the weather hasn't exactly been kind, most lakes in the central highlands area have fished extremely well.
