Waiting for the rain
Mark Gercovich | September 2015

Tuna continue to respond well to stick baits like this one taken on a Daiwa Overthere Skipping.

September signals the start of trout season. Even though local anglers have been able to target certain designated sea run areas all winter, there is a degree of excitement amongst trout fishers once they can spread their focus to any part of the local river systems.

Good times for jetty rats
Mark Gercovich | August 2015

Good fun can be had around some of the local jetties in the cooler months.

Despite winter’s clutches having been around for ages there haven’t been any massive dumps of rain to get the rivers really flowing hard and brown. Although this might seem a bad thing for many angling prospects, there are some interesting angling options available when this occurs. Many keen trout anglers wait for these heavy flows of dirty water to get the trout up and into feeding on the shallow runs. It takes persistence and dedication to blindly and relentlessly flog a lure or large wet fly in the dirty water, but when a big brown smashes a lure unexpectedly at your feet it keeps you motivated to persist until the next time.

Tuna is the word
Nigel Fisher | June 2015

Joshua with his first southern bluefin tuna. That smile says everything that needs to be said.

We have seen it all in the last month from monster tuna around the South West of Portland towards Port Macquarie, school tuna and albacore out around the shelf, to tuna in 20m of water off Cape Nelson.
