Coastal Catches 22/05/2014

A couple of my staff members headed south on the weekend to Eaglehawk neck to try to catch Bluefin Tuna and by all accounts their mission was very successful. It’s a wonder that there were any people left on the North West Coast as there were a heap’s of coasters down there. They both said the camaraderie of the fisho’s that were down there was exceptional and there was plenty of good natured banter on the radio. 
Friday and Saturday were the best fishing days and they were days when there was a reasonable amount of chop on the water. The weather improved for Sunday and the fish were few and far between.

Bluefin Tuna are still being caught at Eaglehawk Neck and there are plenty of North West fisho’s heading down this weekend. The weather seems to be playing a part in how good the fishing is with a few more fish being caught on the rougher days. Smaller skirts such as Meridian Demon are working well as are deep diving bibbed lures.

The next two weeks are the last hurrah for the Brown Trout season and many anglers organise a “last trip” of the season in this time. The Great Lake is well worth a try as there has been some really nice fish caught recently. The Great Lake has plenty of Rainbow Trout and if you are lucky enough to catch one, they normally put on a spectacular show leaping out of the water in their quest to escape. Swan Bay is a good spot in the evening if you strip a large wet fly or a dark spinner.

There has been some fantastic fishing around the traps over the last week. Last Friday we got word that there were some more Bluefin Tuna caught out off Strahan. Sunday was looking good so I got a crew together and headed down the West Coast. We were not disappointed. The weather was good and before long we had a Bluefin on board.  We looked for birds working as they are usually a good indicator of where the fish are. The big surprise for the day was an Albacore Tuna over 20 kg. We finished with three Bluefin and one Albacore.

The weather was very unkind to those fishing in the Pirtek Fishing Challenge last Sunday and conditions were nothing short of atrocious. The results will be announced on Saturday and we are all hoping that anglers from the North West Coast are among the prizes.
There is some good news coming out of the Eaglehawk Neck area because there were a few Bluefin caught last weekend including a 127kg Jumbo sized one. Everyone has their fingers crossed that it is going to be a good season and there will be plenty of fish about.
