Winter Squid Fishing at St Helens

After the last month of being cooped up inside an office and the weekends tied up with other various activities I was desperate to get on the water.
Being behind the counter in my tackle shop everyday I end up being privy to a fair amount of fishing information, stories and reports......the last few weeks have been no exception.

St Helens Report 4/6/2013

I had spoken to Jamie Henderson  late last week (from St Helens bait n tackle) and he assured me that Georges bay was on fire. So armed with information straight from a local fishing guru, i set the plan for taking a day off into motion today. With 5 knot wind and 17 degrees forecast Trev decided it probably would be better to come and keep an eye on me rather than go to school.

Dolphinfish at St Helens

Hi all just a few photos of our rare dolphinfish catch Saturday 9 March on the cliffs. Weather was a bit dodgy but stayed there for a while caught plenty of albies both days and stripies. Also lost a good fish that ripped out over 300 metres of line, but that's fishing. When we hooked and landed the three dolphinfish we went back around over the same spot and hooked up three small kingfish. Two were landed and one dropped. All in all good weekend.
Cheers, Craig Shipton

 St Helens Report 3/3/2013

We just got home from a tuna trip down at St.Helens with my brother Steve and his partner Viv. We arrived at the ramp around 8am this morning and fished until around 1.30pm. We caught around 16 albacore and a couple of stripy tuna. Most of the hook ups came from the 100 metre mark, we did troll out to the Plateau and all we caught out there was a stripy.

St Helens 17/2/2013

Shippy gave me a ring to see if I would like to come tuna fishing at St Helens along with with Andrew and Evan. We left Launceston at 3.30am on Saturday morning arriving at St Helens about 5.30.
We headed to the shelf, got to the 100 meter mark and the rods went off, a nice albacore about 6kg. Start up, rods went off again, 2 more,  moved a bit further 3 more, then 3 more we had 10 by 8 o'clock,... good morning so far .

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.

St Helens Report November Long Weekend

We headed to the caravan park at St Helens for the long weekend. We had a very memorable trip fishing Georges bay and Scamander River. We smashed the trevally losing count of how many we caught but it was a lot. The biggest two being 43cm but there were quite a few over 40cm all on plastics.

Garden Island Report 4/11/2012

I took Bailey and his mate Jack Seabourne for a late arvo fish down at Garden Island on the Tamar River. We wanted some salmon for the smoker. There were plenty of salmon about busting up on the bait fish schools. The boys had a ball catching around 40 I reckon. We kept a couple dozen for the smoker, that's plenty. They caught fish on Dales salt & pepper softies and Bailey caught a few on small surface poppers.

St Helens Report 16/10/2012

Here are some pics of Bailey Zanetto and his cousin Nathan at Georges Bay, St.Helens. Some nice trevally, some good blackback and cockys were caught as well. Also caught some bream at the Scamander River, but no pics of them.

St Helens Report 28/7/2012

We headed to St Helens on Friday for the weekend. We were on the water by Friday lunchtime and headed for the shelf. Johnny started spewing half way out there and spend the next 2 hours up the front of the boat sleeping. I fished on with the electric reel in 300 meters of water, picking up a couple of nice blue eye, we then headed in close to shore and picked up 10 morwong and 10 flathead before dark.
