North West Coast Report 22/10/2011

I recently spent four days up the North-West Coast with my wife and two children to do some maintenance around out property at Forest. After catching up with a mate (Marcus) who is a local on Friday night for a sensational BBQ, we put together a plan

Port Sorell 18/10/2011

By Stephen Smith
Success ! After many visits to the jetty at Port Sorell we finally landed some nice fish for tea !

It was a very interesting to chat with some fellow fishermen, who had landed one fish for the day, but then both of our rods began twitching !

Turners Beach

Trev and I headed out off Turners Beach for about 10 k and ran a burley trail for about 5 hours no luck with the mako’s, just heaps of dogfish (very annoying).
We then headed in to Lillico Strait and got on to some nice pike, heaps of fun on the trout gear.
We got them drift spinning in 2 meters of water on the pearl white flapper.

Squid Caught at Penguin

by Janeen Lillas
Caught recently on a kayak from the beach across from my house at Penguin. One hood measured 30 cm in length . As I gut them while still at sea I only return with the clean hoods. As you can see  I ended up plastered with ink as the big squid wouldn't fit in my net.

Port Sorell Report Sunday 17th of October 2010

A quick note to go with the photo of my wife Nikki Brown, taken on Sunday morning. We trolled for a couple of hours from the Port Sorell boat ramp upriver to Eagle point, picking up a few nice salmon and two decent Couta.
Enjoyed the sunshine and our new 429 seahorse and 30 fourstroke recently purchased from Port Sorell marine.
See you out there somewhere soon

Fishing around town - Devonport

By Leroy Tirant
The Mersey River is just one location around Devonport where some good fish can be caught and it is the one Leroy Tirant is going to give us a closer look at.
Fishing the Mersey River at Devonport is a year round proposition. Most of the bread and butter species can be caught here nearly year round with seasonal migrations of other fish.
This is by no means an in depth report but it will provide those with little knowledge of the area good starting points to at least get the kids onto some fish.

Devonport fishing report May 2010

report by  Leroy Tirant
Fishing around Devonport in the last couple of weeks has been fantastic for anglers dropping a line in between the rain and or the wind. The Mersey has been producing some fantastic Silver Trevally up to a kilo. Most have been smaller juveniles but anglers taking the time to berley have been catching good numbers with the odd bigger fish amongst them.

Devonport kingfish

Headed out from Devonport with a mate on Monday afternoon to try our luck with the Australian Salmon. When we finally arrived outside the mouth, we snuck our way around to where the other boats were (12 others) as they were all congregated together. It didn't take long and we were both on, lovely 1.3kgs Australian salmon. Hit after hit occurred for the next hour, but we hit the jackpot with four lovely yellowtail kingfish. What an awesome fighting (and eating) fish, especially on our 5kg trout gear. Needless to say I will be leaving the trout alone and heading back out to sea when weather permits next. All the kingfish weighed in at 1.6kg cleaned.

Cheers, Lance, Devonport.

King Island - unfished and waiting for you

One of the great things about King Island is just that - it is an island, and relatively compact as well. There are two main centres, being Grassy and Currie. Like virtually all major population areas in the world with coastal access, both have harbours. Grassy Harbour is on the south east coast and Currie Harbour is around a third of the way up the west coast. Both have good weather protection and both have some excellent fishing within their confines.
