When you have finished for the day, why not have a brag about the ones that didn't get away! Send Mike an article on your fishing (Click here for contact details), and we'll get it published here. Have fun fishing - tasfish.com

The IFS have received a number of queries about new fishing lures on the market that display lights and vibrate to attract fish. Tasmanian Inland Waters are recreationally governed by the Inland Fisheries Act 1995 and Inland Fisheries (Recreational Fishing) Regulations 2009. The regulations, at 24(8) state:

'A person at any inland waters must not have possession of a device of an electric, electronic, sonic or ultrasonic nature that is capable of being used for the purpose of attracting or influencing the movement of fish.
Penalty: Fine of not less than 1 penalty unit and not more than 5 penalty units'.

Currently, a penalty unit is valued at $159.00.

Regardless of any claims made in advertising a product, we advise that these types of lures do not comply with our regulations
