      1. Had a great time with my 'BFF' Best fishing friends, fishing a river we have never fished before. Lots of small fish but the beach fishing was spectacular. This will be my second last video I reckon. I have some other footage to piece together. Thanks for the support.
      2. Just a quick clip lads. Thanks for the support.
      3. Tough clear conditions. Thanks for watching Clint.
      4. Fishing was a bit tough but we managed to find a few nice fish.Thanks for watching.Clint.
      5. Have not posted for a couple of months. I explain why in the vid.Thanks for watching, hope you enjoy.
      6. Yes, I got carried away with the size of the rainbow. It was nudging three pounds not 4-5. I wouldn't be a fisherman if I didn't tell a few porkies. Thanks for watching. Clint.
      7. Visited Lake Pedder for the first time & stayed at Strathgordon. Rain really never stopped but was still great fun. What a wild place it is down there. Hope you enjoy. Clint
      8. Caught up with Great Lake Guru Jamie for a lead core session. Fist time fishing this method and was a nice session. Thanks for watching. Clint.
      9. It was the last weekend of the Trout season. We decided to explore a river I have never fished. We ended up catching 6 between us. All on the small side. Thanks for watching. Clint.
      10. My first time targeting these fish. Enjoy. Clint.
      11. G'day all, I did a lot of fishing as a kid in WA. The old man lived just south of Geraldton for his last 30 years and had a 32 foot, marine-ply, ex-cray boat with a 6 cyl Perkins diesel in it. That was great for choogin out and wetting a line for Dhufish, Snapper etc. I also spent quite a bit of my growing up living in Broome so fishing was pretty much a must and in some ways I think I got 'fished out'. Moved to Tassie 14 years ago, hadn't really wet a line until this summer. Step-daughter has a boyfriend from WA who's a mad keen fisherman and it seems I have the bug again. Loving this soft-plastics approach. Less fussing with bait etc. and great fun trying out the different types. I live in Hobart but we also have a shack down at Dover (Australia's 2nd most southern township). When we bought the shack it had a 12 foot dinghy with a very old outboard with rather stripped gearing. Bought a new outboard over summer and we've been taking the dinghy all around Port Esperance picking up Flathead, Wrasse, Aussie Salmon (Cockys) and a couple of Bream. Anzac Day was a glorious Tassie autumn day and found me fishing around Port Esperance from the shore and then at the mouth of the Esperance River [see pic]. Found a great little spot that I figured would probably be too shallow but brought in a couple of 35 - 38cm flatties [see pic] before I headed down to Southport. Saw the best bit of 'lazy boating' I've ever seen. Someone had launched their tinnie and just left the car and trailer sitting on the beach backed in waiting for their return [see pic] (wouldn't try that in Broome). Tried a couple of spots and then headed to the boat ramp which sits right on the inlet to the Lune River. Incoming tide, great current rushing past and hooked up quite a few. First was a fighting Barracouta about 60cm that had something very wrong with it. Spine was bent about four times so it looked like a slithering snake - didn't get a pic of that one unfortunately, one of the locals had his dog there and it was a bit too keen on the fish. After that got a 35cm cocky [see pic] followed by a few Yakka (baby yellow-tailed Kingfish). Happy to let all of these go although handed over the Yakkas to the local family as I was landing them. I'm still getting to know the local species and it's a big change from 40lb breaking strain hand-reels, big hooks and fresh bait in Broome to a 6 foot rod with 4lb line and soft plastics, but I'm loving it! Any Tassie folks on here who would like to give me some pointers or suggestions - it's all greatly appreciated. I think I need to get myself a squid-jig next to pull in some of the local Calamari. So, keen to keep an eye on what's happening around the state and around the country. Cheers!
      12. Spent a morning polaroiding some Western Lakes Trout. That was until the cloud come over and put pay to that. Still managed to find a couple of nice fish. Thanks for watching. Clint.
      13. Snuck out for a fish while on a family Holiday. Thanks for watching. Clint.
      14. Have not been fishing for the last couple of days. So went through some old footage and slap together a short vid. As you tell I'm great at calling what fish it is before I see it. Thanks for watching.
      15. Caught up with fishing buddy Adrian Webb for a hot morning session. We ended up with about 20 fish between us which was great. Hope you enjoy. Clint.
      16. Had a fun session at my local chasing Salmon. Great fun on light gear. Enjoy and thanks for watching.
      17. Had a great time chasing some Trout in very shallow water. One insane capture you have to check out. Thanks for watching. Clint.

      20. 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.
      21. 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. Best Regards Blake The Southern Rock Lobster r Sending my old man in as shark bait! The feed of fresh scallops Roughly where we dive for our scallops! If you haven't liked my Facebook Page yet feel free to do so, they will be a giveaway coming up soon and its a great way to stay updated. Youtube Channel
      22. Managed to get out for another fish during the week. Found a school of salmon held up in a deep channel. Thanks for watching everyone.
      23. Had a quick session on my local river. It was a bit tough but still managed a few. Enjoy. Clint.
