Penguin Report 25/3/2013

Spork and Simmo went for a fish yesterday at Penguin. After sussing out a few launching spots we came up with this one as the easiest. We unloaded, set up our gear and hit the water.  With no wind, rain or waves, what a great morning !
Not many fish caught but the squid were playing havoc with the plastics.

Fishing around Devonport

The fishing at Devonport has been red hot the last few weeks despite the weather. A trip around town will show many people in boats and on shore fishing local waters. in the Mersey there are heaps if squid, with plenty of Salmon and Couta making a showing on the tide. Couta have been caught as far up river as Bells Pda at Latrobe. Bells Pde has also seen quite a fee Sea Runners being caught, mainly because of the incredible amounts of whitebait in the river and other local estuaries. There are few good Flathead also being caught near the mouth if the river.

Moorlands Beach

We fished Moorlands Beach on Sunday fishing from 10am till 6pm finding it a tough day, coming off a week of daddy day care I was up for a challenge and took the strong northerly on it's stride only to land 1 flat head at 2pm of 29cm.  Fishing beside a gutter I kept my hopes high as the tide started to rise a bit and my burley  trial started to bring in the fish. 

Smithton 5/2/2012

We headed to Smithton on Friday for a buck's party fishing trip. We put two boats in the water at 3pm and fished until dark.
We hooked into around a dozen nice size gummy sharks, an elephant fish and three 5kg snapper.
It was definitely one of the best fishing trips I've ever had.
Thanks Norm and family for the accommodation, the awesome food and everything else. Cheers
President Stu.

Don Heads Squids

Took the kids down the end of Coles beach road, (on the rocky point),  to try to catch a feed of squid over the reef.
Just as the sun disappeared behind Don Heads they came on the bite and we landed 10 good size one's in around an hour using squid jigs.

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.
