George's Bay and Grand Slam

We headed to St Helens Caravan Park on Tuesday and came home on Sunday. Fishing was quiet tuff in the bay only catching 8 trevally, 4 bream and lots of other bits and pieces. All trevally were caught on a wide range of plastics and bream on Yep hard bodies. We tried swimming a wide range of hard bodies but the Yep hard bodies were the only ones that would work.

Grand Slam 2012-Dale, Trev and Bailey

Trev, Bailey and I had a great day at St Helens today fishing in the Tasfish.com Grand slam.
We didn’t manage a win but we did catch all 3 required species of a Trevally, Bream and Salmon, (The required “Grand Slam”).
A big thanks’ goes to Mike Stevens for putting such a fantastic event on and for making all of us who are “learning to bream fish with lures” comfortable enough to fish with the big guns.
We will return next year with much more knowledge (I hope!).

St.Helens & Shark at Garden Island

I just got back from St.Helens where I had a fish with my brother Stephen.
I was tied up doing chores at the shack yesterday, so today we went out for about 4 hours for a good feed of morwong, we were after a stripy, but it was not to be this time.
We then went for a troll at the 100 metre mark for some albacore and boated three.

St Helens Christmas 2011

On a trip to St Helens over the Christmas, had the usual home cooked Christmas dinner and Boxing day holiday. I wasn't to know these were going to be the best days for fishing while we were there. On Monday night went to set my craypot but got beaten by a strong south easterly wind, so the cray got to live another day.

St Helens Report 31/12/2011

Just got back from St.Helens, spent a couple of days fishing in Georges Bay and Grants Lagoon with Bailey, my brother Paul and his son Nathan.  We caught a few salmon and a couple of grass whiting over some sand flats and Nathan lost a really big bream right at the boat.  In Grants lagoon we caught some big trevally, bream and flathead, also got around 10 dozen prawns from here on Tuesday night.  We also got a pic of a nice Thresher shark caught up the coast from shore (pics may not be very clear as they were taken from a mobile).

 

Upper Scamander River and Georges Bay at St.Helens Report

I have been working down at St.Helens last week, so Bailey caught the bus down on Friday to have a fish with me on the weekend.

Georges Bay, Grants Lagoon and Scamander River 14 September

We arrived at St Helens caravan park on Wednesday at 11am and was on Georges bay at noon. The wind was blowing 20 knot north westerlies with stronger gusts coming through so we launched the boat at Akaroa. We fished wherever we could get out of the wind, casting 1/8 jigheads with a wide range of soft plastics.

St Helens Saturday 16th July 2011

Mike Stevens rang last night and invited me to join him for a trip down to St Helens today, "plenty of big Australian Salmon about, we should have a bit of fun" ......were his words. That was an understatement.
