Mike Fry doesn’t only live on the Wild Side of Tasmania, but also goes fishing in probably the wildest boat ever to troll for trout—certainly in Tasmania.
When your mate says ‘What are you doing tomorrow, want to come up the Gordon for the night?’ it would be pretty hard to say anything else except “you bet” and start checking out your tackle box and packing your overnight bag. But if your mate was Troy Grining and he wanted to give his new 52ft, high speed cruiser a run across Macquarie Harbour, test the new onboard dory with a chance of landing a nice Gordon River Brown you would have to feel privileged. I didn’t say anything about getting on my hands and knees and kissing his feet…just having a lend of ya’ but I did feel very appreciative.

Bar Crusher Boats recently teamed up with Navico Australia’s Dave Silva to develop the first 560XS Tournament model.
Designed around Dave’s passion for tournament barra fishing in the Top End, this custom model has taken Bar Crusher’s popular ‘crossover’ concept to another level.
Built on the heavy-duty plate aluminium 6.10m (LOA) 560 hull, Bar Crusher’s high-tech Waveslicer™ non-pounding, deep-V hull design is perfect for handling the often messy conditions, created through large tidal movement and wind, encountered along the Top End’s river systems and open coastline. The boat’s expertly-engineered Rigideck™ sub-floor system ensures maximum hull strength, while Bar Crusher's exclusive Quickflow™ water ballast technology turns the boat into an amazingly stable casting platform at rest.

We did a bit of a runaround Tasmania’s tackle stores to see what their tips for the first month or so of the tackle season were. We asked what the top three places to fish were, plus lures, flies, baits and a few other things.
Here is a rundown on their answers Whenever, and wherever you fish - anywhere, or for any fish in the world - ask the locals and especially ask at the local tackle store. They know what was caught today, yesterday and on what.
