I've had better days 10/4/2014

After a day and a half of light rain and drizzle, it finally eased off this afternoon so I headed off to Merseylea for a short session before the rain returned as forecast. There wasn't any wind to worry about and it was still quite mild as well making ideal conditions for a spin. The Mersey was running nice and clear and I did notice a few small browns jumping in a couple of sections upstream, so I new there were a few fish about.

Easter Fishing News

Scallop Season Opens
The 2014 recreational scallop season opens from this Saturday, 12 April and runs until July 31.  The D'Entrecasteaux Channel remains closed to protect scallop stocks, so you cannot take or possess scallops in this area or transit through it with scallops on board your boat.  Reports last year indicated that scallop divers were most active on the East Coast from Coles Bay to Marion Bay.

Lake Leake Report 6/4/14 

Young Gun well and truly shows up the Old Gun!
With not a breath of wind in site, pop rang up and said to get the boat out as he was coming to “try” and show us young one up…  drinks1 We were on the water around 12:15pm trawled across the bay with a variety of different lures on. Connor had on a Berkley Gulp Pumpkin seed (That Todd Lambert gave him the day before, thanks Todd!!! cool1) pop had on his trusty old’ black, red and gold and I had on a Gold Mepps Spinner. Connor had a nice hit, and lost it. Then Pop was onto one, but only a perch. We headed out towards the southern end of the island, having a bit of a drift and spin, but the drift was nearly impossible as the lake was mirror image! Not a ripple on the water.  From there we decided to trawl up to the Snowy, were we pulled up and had a few more casts, but nothing. By this time it was around 1:30, and a heap of boats had come out onto the lake. We fished there for a while, but nothing.

DASHER  RIVER  GIVES  UP  A  FEW  BROWNS 2/4/2014

After the weather finally cleared here in Sheffield today I headed on over to the Dasher River  (at 3.15pm) some ten minutes from home at Claude Road.  After a one kilometer walk through the paddocks I reached my starting point where I would fish my way back upstream to the main road bridge. I was a little surprised to how low the river level was especially after last weeks 57mms of rain here. It was also a very dark tannin colour too, but still looked good enough for a spin. The sky was now clear and there was just a medium South Westerly breeze blowing which was enough to keep those little pesky flies away that hang around the cow paddocks.

GREAT  AFTERNOON  SESSION  ON  THE  DASHER  RIVER 3/4/2014

After a fair afternoon on the Dasher River yesterday I thought it would be worth while to try it once again this afternoon. I have another friendly land owner who lets me fish his property and so I made the decision to try there today. I will have close on  two kilometers of river that I can fish and I'm hoping it will fish a little better than where I fished yesterday. The wind was much stronger and gusty today and this was good as it will put a ripple on the surface which is better than being flat calm.

A  MUCH  DIFFERENT  TRIP  TO  MERSEYLEA  THIS  TIME 1/4/2014

I decided to head back to Merseylea (at 2.30pm) and have another spin along the same stretch of the Mersey River where I did fairly well for the Pirtek Fishing Challenge last Sunday week. On my arrived Neil Morrow from the IFS pulled up along side me and we had a nice chat for around 45 minutes before he had to head off. Neil was doing the rounds checking on the Anglers Access areas to see if they needed tidying up  or repairs. He did tell me that the IFS were very concerned about the amount of rubbish that had been left laying around at Lake Kara and if it keeps up, well it could well be closed to fishing.

JUST  AN  AVERAGE  SESSION  ON  THE  MEANDER  RIVER  TODAY 31/3/2014

Being the last day of March and  given that the conditions were pretty good I thought I would give the Meander River a go today after lunch. The weather was a little on the humid side with a light East to North Easterly breeze and very heavy cloud cover making it reasonably good for trout fishing. The only down fall was the wind direction, but in saying that it was very light and so it hopefully won't effect the fishing that much.

Pirtek Fishing Challenge - Tasmania

Here's the final results for the Pirtek Fishing Challenge for tassie. I'm very happy with my result to catch what I did in the Mersey River as I knew it was going to be tough to be most fish taken from the lakes. I won a $300-00 prize pack from Berkley & Companion Equipment.
Cheers
