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.
