      8. tasmania S-factor?

        Last time I had the boat out was in October. So it was good to get out again. Fished Bronte lagoon for five hours. It took us three and half hours to land our first fish. We ended up landing four in the next hour which saved us from blanking. First time I have used S-Factor on my hardbody lures and it won't be the last. Thanks for watching. Clint.
      9. tasmania Tasmanian Scallop Season

        Its been a while since the last report so I thought it was about time I put something up. Just recently the recreational scallop season has opened up here in Tasmania. Our whole family loves scallops so we decided to go on a trip for the opening weekend "Last Saturday". We dive from hookahs in the Mercury Passage which is in-between Maria Island and Orford, the scallops are plentiful here and good size at that. They are in roughly 12m of water, although they can be caught both shallower and deeper. Water Visibility was fairly good, and overall weather apart from some rain was good. The bag limit for all types of scallops in Tas is 50 combined per person and it takes roughly 20 mins to grab your bag. With the extra weight of the scallops in my catch bag I did encounter a slight problem with over overfilling the bag and struggling to get back up but I managed in the end:) After around any hour of diving, we had 150 commercial scallops onboard with a few Queen Scallops in the mix. I had a little bit of time left so we headed to a nearby island, Lachlan Island. Where I managed a good sized Male Southern Rock Lobster. I did see a few other crays along a ledge but unfortunately they escaped capture, bugger! Overall it was a good day, with quite a few boats up there. We already have more trips planned being this Friday and Hopefully the coming Tuesday and I'll keep you updated of our results. Unfortunately due to an awkward camera angle, I won't be able to produce a video from the footage shot, although I am planning to get some more footage this Friday which will hopefully be a better angle.

      19. Went back home to to Tassie for a week to spend some time with the folks. I got out on the Tamar River a few times and we were killing it on the flatties with micro jigs. Sorry no photos as there was no size to them, just heaps of them. We did have a big feed for lunch when we got home! Had a good session on the squid and barracouta out the headlands. The coota were in plague proportions around the 50cm mark. You could literally jiggle you lure out the side of the boat and hook up! We were trying to get them to jump out of the water and grab the lure mid air. You could literally make them dance for you! We did get one to grab the lure mid air which was crazy to watch! We kept a few between 70-80cm and a couple of small ones for bait. I was kicking myself that I didn't have any topwater lures with me as it would have been crazy fun watching them get airborne hitting the lure. We went back out a few days later with topwater lures at the ready but we couldn't find a single coota anywhere! So instead we got a heap more squid and micro jigged for reefies. The wrasse down there are in ridiculous numbers, it's just a shame they don't taste any good like they do up here. They pull like freight trains in under 5m of water with the water so clear you could sometimes see them take your lure! Not many photos taken as we were having so much fun.

      22. Some Australian Trout...

        Although we are sponsors of the site we try and not inundate the forum with marketing spam and try and keep our posts restricted to genuinely interesting pictures and information. With this in mind some of the Nordic Stage team from down south have been smashing some awesome trout lately and as AFO does not get much trout converge we thought we would share. First up our Tassy crew have been bagging some huge rainbows in the the lakes. These fish fight much harder than a lot of people give them credit for and aggressively attach lures to boot. The rod of choice the Tasmanians is the Areal range as the slower taper does a good job distributing the pressure over the whole blank during the fight and rarely do the hooks pull. Our Victorian crew have also been hitting some runs. On a recent camping trip to Lake Dartmouth the browns were prolific. This is a trip we hope to do in the new year as it involves covering a lot of ground by boat to the very back end of this huge lake to set up camp. Literally sounds amazing! As the Victorian boys flick a lot of hard bodies into timber the preference are the Areal Pros and Cheaters to put a bit more hurt on and get the fish our of cover. Thanks for reading.

      25. Fishing the Derwent

        Hey all, So while everyone is fishing the classic at the Sunny Coast I'm down here in the female groin of Australia, otherwise known as Tassie, for work and of course, I get to sneak in a quick fishing session. I only got an hour and a half in this morning behind the hotel/casino to try my luck. I set my alarm wrong (idiot) but my body clock got me up just in time to see the sky beginning to light up. A quick hustle to get my clothes on and I'm out the door and greeted by this. Mod note - I've moved the thread here because for some reason i'm not authorised to view the post if it's in the actual Tassie report section.. weird. Webstig - please look into
