Kevin Blackwell recently discovered this oarfish washed ashore under the Tasman Bridge. It weighed 20 kilos and measured 2.2 metres in length. Kevin donated it to CSIRO in Hobart. Below are the details from John Pogonoski to Kevin.
Attached is a photo of 2 trout which I caught in the Derwent River about 2km above the New Norfolk Bridge..
They were caught on opening day of the trout season during the Derwent Valley Inter-club Challenge which was run by the NNLAA, the waters being from Below Meadowbank to the Tasman Bridge. Tight Lines!!
Ian Johnson - PS..we are about to eat them for Dinner!!
President Reg Travers sent me this photo today.
He fished the Derwent River this morning and landed four fish similar to this one, all around the four pound mark.
Lure of choice was Dale's Yep Hardbodys.
Well done mate,
Howdy fellow Fishermen - So, after not being out to have a crack at a Bream in over 8 months, I finally got to do so over the weekend.
I headed down to Hobart on Friday to pick up Isaac and head up the coast that night to chase some Bream on surface on Saturday. By the time Isaac knocked off work Friday arvo there was no need to rush to get up the coast as we were only camping to get an early start for the following day.

Tasmania is surrounded by water and has some spectacular marine fishing from bays, river and estuary systems to game fishing for yellowfin tuna, albacore, striped marlin and southern bluefin tuna.
Southern bluefin tuna are one of the most keenly sought game fish and several world records for these are held in Tasmania.
In fresh water Tasmania has a world class trout fishery. The Central Highlands boasts over 3000 lakes and tarns, most of which hold trout. Many of these are only accessible by foot, but the journey can be a reward in itself as the walk can be spectacular. Rivers are also highly regarded and many have reasonable flows all year.
