St Helens Gamefishing report

Gamefishing off St Helens continues to produce consistent results in the area of tuna numbers, especially albacore close in around 2-4 miles from shore. Last weekend albacore and striped tuna were prolific, with our largest albacore Saturday 19th March at 22 Kg on a small skirted trolling lure. Water temp is around the 17-18 degrees. The key is to look for the deep blue colour water edging up against the greener grubbier water. Saturday produced a 27 Kg yellowfin tuna on Merricks reef, with other similar fish being hooked up the same day.

St.Helens Report March 12 2011

Fished Saturday hoping to get onto some albacore this time and got plenty with no stripies this time. Caught around 17 all around 2 kilos average weight.
They were all caught on the 100 metre mark.

St Helens Report

Fished on Saturday hoping to get on to some Albacore, got to the ramp at 9.30 am, slept in, too many drinks on the Friday night certainly doesn’t help.

tasfish.com St Helens Charity Grandslam raises $1660

The St Helens Charity Grandslam was run and won Saturday 29 January at the St Helens Regatta. Bigger and better than ever it raised $1660 for a charity that will be announced shortly. It will be announced here.
This amount was only possible due to the support of www.tasfish.com, Tamar Marine, Coastal Marine and the Rotary Club of St Helens. Their generosity is priceless and we sincerely thank them.

St Helens Practice

St Helens Report October 24 2010

Had a boys trip to St Helens on the weekend with great results, plenty of big salmon mainly in Moulting Bay & some in the channel. Also bagged a few silver trevally in the channel during a real purple patch on Sat evening. All were caught on soft plastics with a variety being used.

Also had a great session on the flathead with a couple of beauties being boated at the 65m mark straight out from heads.

Cheers Tim Gavin, Brady & Joel.

Doing it in the Dark Tamar River - Floundering

By Dale Howard
With Winter well and truly upon us, many fishers seem
happy to put the trout gear away for a while and move
onto other things to occupy themselves. For Dale
Howard and his son Trevor it’s time for a few visits along
the shores of the Tamar River......Flounder time!
This article comes about from the urging of the editor (Mike
Stevens) after seeing some pictures of a recent trip with my
son and a few mates.

Tamar Report May 15th 2010

Went out again last night as conditions were perfect and we knew it would be a while before we struck the tides and everything "just right" like it is at the moment. We also had to factor in that I had couple of children wanting to go urgently after the previous night with Dale where we scored a few and they were left at home.

Fishing Report St Helens  20 03 2010

Travis, Jamie and his son Patrick (in one boat ) and Dale, his son Trevor, myself and daughter Demi (in another), made our way to St Helens this morning seeking Kingfish and Albacore Tuna.
 
Demi was very excited as she had always wanted to have a go at this type of fishing,  but up until now was always told to stay at home as I feared that the heavy sea's would make her sick .
My thinking was  it's a long day watching your daughter being sick over the side, (especially when I" ve been there myself on a couple of occasions!!!.)
