There are a lot of anglers from the Burnie area looking forward to this weekend as it is the Burnie Show holiday on Friday and many use it as a start of their fishing up in the highlands. The weather can be changeable but it is generally when things start to get a bit warmer and Trout fishing starts to fire.
The road from Lake Augusta to the nineteen lagoons area is now open so there is easy access to the area. It’s one of the premium Trout fishing locations in the state and I expect there will be a few folk from Burnie there on Friday. The IFS have advised that to road is better condition than the past few years and they have requested that anglers stick to the speed limit to keep the road in good condition.

The 2014 whitebait season opens Wednesday 1 October and will remain open until Tuesday 11 November.
The rivers open for whitebait fishing are subject to a schedule of annual rotations of open and closed waters. Whitebait fishers will need to ensure that the river they are proposing to fish is open for this season.
Some of the weather that we are getting lately is almost unbelievable with relatively calm days and very little rain. It seems there are a lot of anglers taking advantage of the conditions and wetting a line.
I was down at Sisters Beach on Sunday and the target for the morning was Calamari Squid. We got onto a few good ones and I have been experimenting with a method that I was told about a while ago and it has been fairly successful. It basically involves hanging a squid jig under a polystyrene float and using a small silicone rubber float stopper to set the depth. The advantage of this is you can set the depth so your squid jig is just above the bottom which leaves it in the strike zone and it also results in less jigs being lost. It worked for us and it is a method I will persevere with.
Trev and I had a nice trip to little lake on Sunday caught fish on hard body lures , the fish are a lot bigger than the last couple of seasons in my opinion cant wait to get up there in the summer
