When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing - tasfish.com

Hello everyone, I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself.

My name is Stephen Smith and I have been managing the website tasfish.com since May 2009.

It has been an epic journey of learning and discovery and I am indebted to Mike Stevens for his help, support and patience.

I am developing a new venture Rubicon Web and Technology Training ( www.rwtt.com.au ). The focus is two part, to develop websites for individuals and small business and to train people to effectively use technology in their everyday lives.

Please contact me for further information.

8 Duck Bay - Smithton

A premium protected estuary situated on the Duck River at Smithton. Some years ago this bay was netted regularly, both commercially and recreationally. That is now in the past and the fishing has improved enormously. Australian salmon, flathead, silver trevally and big King George whiting are regulars on bait and lures, soft plastic lures being especially popular.

Fishing around the oyster racks and gutters brings the best results for the big flathead. A good boat ramp can be found in town and on the western shore opposite the boat ramp is an area known as the "reclaim". This reclaimed land is a great place to spend an hour or two and if you are really lazy, or perhaps incapacitated you can even fish from your car, or close to it. Expect to catch flathead, silver trevally and small salmon here. P.S. The locals call silver trevally silver bream. For some unknown reason the extent of bream in Tasmania seems to finish about a dozen kilometres to the east of Smithton at Black River. The west coast seems barren of them and they reappear around the D'Entrecasteaux and Lune rivers on the south east coast.
