  3. I used to love going after the blood worms in and around Outer Harbor back in the day when I lived in Sth Aust, most of the areas that I used go for them are closed off now. I used to go to Pelican Point & under the Outer Harbor Wharf for them, I gather that's all closed off now as it's been around 36 years or so since I've done it, been in Tassie for the last 24 years. They're one of the best baits around that's for sure.. cheers Adrian
  4. Thanks Adrian. Always very interesting to be aware of the many different factors effecting fish behaviour. As you would be aware I do all my fishing wading shallow water sand flats casting lures. I very rarely use bait these days. I have always felt there were parallels and similarities to wading for trout. Something that requires a far bigger effort that I am prepared to give here in S.A. Regardless I like eating Yellow Fin Whiting and Flathead too much !!! I am waiting for the upper gulf waters to get back over 13c before I get back into it. And if the bloodworms are running
  5. Brown trout spawn in the rivers during late May though June & July that's the reason our season is closed those three months, waters that are classed as rainbow trout waters close approx one month later and reopen in September as they spawn later than the browns. Water temps does have a big effect on trout fishing in both rivers & lakes, early season the trout can be a little sluggish with low water temps of 3-6 degrees, Myself I prefer the water temps in the rivers to be 9-15 degrees as that's when the trout seem to be most aggressive. Sometimes early season can also depend on the wea
  6. So you have an imposed closed and open season for trout? With drivers I am referring to natural seasonal triggers and stimuluses that get the fish firing. assuming they go dormant in winter. So things like a certain temperature ... which may also coincide with the natural availability of food. A hatch of a particular insect. Natural stimuli, triggers, drivers of fish behaviour.

  8. Our trout season for the rivers/stream & lakes starts on the Saturday closest to the 1st August & closes on the last Sunday closest to the end of April each year. There are several lakes open all year round and a few rivers that are classed as rainbow trout waters close a month later & open a month later than brown trout waters. We've had our driest Winter that I can remember since moving here back in March 2000, May rainfall was 45 mm, June 106 mm, so far for July just 1 mm, there is rain on the way sometime Sunday or Monday at this stage. Temps here in Sheffield have been very lo
  9. What do you regard as your regular season? And what are the drivers for it? I am hanging out for things to warm up in the gulf and on the sand flats A very cold winter spell currently that will delay things. At 11C and possibly cooler in spots one of the coldest spells https://oceancurrent.aodn.org.au/product.php
  10. Only one month to go before the 2024/25 trout season opens so here's another of my 2023/24 trout season spin sessions, this trip was mid January not long after the influx of Cormorants hit the rivers & streams here in Tasmania. Thankfully. I did manage to catch and release a few wild brown trout before this little stream was cleaned out... cheers Adrian (meppstas)

    This FC leader thanks
  13. I love trout! This is the best fishing I've ever had.
  14. This was one of my best trips fishing the fast waters of the Meander River during the 2023/24 trout season. Fastwater fishing is never easy and every trout that's caught is very well earned, it's tough but it can also be very rewarding as well. cheers Adrian

    WINTER GARFISH

    Hi All, I know it’s been awhile in this forum but there’s some useful information here. I’ve just set up a 100w flood light on the tinny and interesting in trying some dabbing for garfish/squid. I’m wondering is dabbing purely for the summer months or can you have some luck in the winter month too. Adelaide metro/yorkes based. Any info will be appreciated. Cheers guys
  16. This trip was back in January before the Cormorants hit the rivers here in big numbers, as the title states 5 from 9, trout few and far between was spot on.. There's also a few photos from the spin session below the YouTube video as well.. cheers Adrian (meppstas)

  23. I meant to put this short six minute musical photo slideshow with the photo books a couple of days ago.. I kept it short as not to send the viewers to sleep, the original video runs for 20 minutes.. It was hard working out what photos to use as I had so many, there's probably (& there is) a lot more good photos that I could have added, but one has to stop somewhere don't they. I will have 101 videos "My Rivers & Fish" (when I put 98, 99, 100 & 101 together) that go back a long time, and boy has the rivers/streams changed over those years with the many floods that we've had in that
  24. Thanks Bjorn & Des, it's something I like to do at the end of each trout season, always to look back on when I can't fish the rivers/streams in the near future.. I have 15 seasons of photo books now.. cheers Adrian
  25. Picture perfect there! Absolutely beautiful shots Adrian.
  26. Fantastic photos mate, a magical backyard you have down there!
