This week tuna has been in strong numbers along the North-West and Northern coastlines. The tuna have been spread quite vastly, from Wynyard right through the Low Head area. Stick bait style lures, particularly in the pilchard colour configurations, are still being productive on fish. There has been a lot of whales in the bait balls along with the tuna. The Inglis River has been producing good sized and hard fighting trevally, as well as bream and numbers of tailor too. Soft plastics have been very effective fishing method. ALSO IN SPORT: There has been a number of trout spotted in the lower reaches of rivers on the North-West Coast. There has also been some good sized flathead getting along the Northern coastline, entertaining the surf fishos. There has been some excellent whiting fishing happening in the Port Sorell area as well as some fantastic trevally, tailor and salmon. A few Snapper have been caught off the Devonport area by fishers - fishing the tide change and daybreak or sunset times. Along the East Coast there have been a few aalbacores starting to show up on temperature breaks out wide. Also broadbill swordfish along the East and Southeast Coast, for those that spend the time on these gladiators of the ocean. One recent sword weighed over 290 kilograms. The Mersey River is still fishing well, along with the South Esk and Brumby's Creek area too. In the Highlands, Brady's Chain of lakes is still producing good fish on all methods. Lake Crescent has been producing some nice fish for those that spend the time on this lake. Tight Lines until next week!
