The 2014 whitebait season opens Wednesday 1 October and will remain open until Tuesday 11 November.
The rivers open for whitebait fishing are subject to a schedule of annual rotations of open and closed waters. Whitebait fishers will need to ensure that the river they are proposing to fish is open for this season.
Great day fishing on the water off Burnie Sunday 21 September - Anthony Taylor, Anthony Wolfe from Coastal Marine and the boys! More fish were released than kept..but had plenty for a good Sunday night bbq!

The weather has finally given me the motivation to go for a fish; Trev was pretty keen to give the bream a go as well, so we headed off to the Swan River to give them a go. We arrived there around 11.30 this morning to a slight breeze and soon had the boat on the water.
We are getting quite a few enquiries about the various rock lobster season opening dates and whether fishers can transit between open and closed areas. I’ve attached a flyer here. The information is also on the DPIPWE website at:
We went around the back of Maria Island on the 17th of August , I was with Paul (my boyfriend), Gretel (my daughter) and Esta (our dog). My dad had been round there the weekend before and did okay, so we thought we'd try it out. We hadn't been on a fishing trip on the new boat (a 35 Caribbean) so seemed a great place to go on such a beautiful day. We were using soft plastics, although I'm not sure which ones.

Hi mike, thought you might be interested in seeing what my hubby Chris caught on a line a few weeks ago just off Port Sorell. We took a couple of pics then returned it back to the waters. We hadn't caught or seen one of these before but researched and found it was a saw shark.
Here is a starting point for a little research. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saw_shark
