General Discussion / Big Bass
« Last post by Member on July 30, 2018, 10:21:20 AM »
Hey guys, novice bass fishermen here just want to start a topic about big bass. Pretty much here to find out what's the biggest Australian bass caught and if it's rare to catch bass of 60cm or more. Does anyone have any photos of 60cm+ bass?
I myself have only ever been bass fishing a handful of times as I prefer saltwater fishing/spearing but on those few times I did I was catching bass all the way up to 64cm (mainly 40-55s) and quite consistently too. I'll have to get the photos off my old phone and upload.

Please feel free to post all of your big bass photos, I'd love to see them   :youbeauty

When it comes to fishing the goods  :X marks the spot!

Carp Management Program attends National Carp Control Plan workshop

Last week, Jonah Yick, IFS Leader of the Tasmanian Carp Management Program attended a workshop in Canberra. The workshop was part of a larger project under the National Carp Control Plan (NCCP).

 

At the workshop there were specialists from all over the country including:


researchers of small and large fish,
plant scientists,
waterbird scientists,
amphibian (frogs and toads) researchers, and
bug scientists.


 

The workshop discussed how different levels of carp reduction from mainland waterways might affect the surrounding ecosystem. It also talked about water quality, system modelling, risk analysis, and economics.

Hopefully, the outcome of the workshop will assist the NCCP to:


plan an integrated approach to controlling carp in Australia’s waterways,
understand and manage the risks involved with the removal of carp,
quantify the benefit/cost analysis of the project, and
Inform stakeholder engagement.

News Views & Press Releases / The Tumbledown Creek bridge is closed
« Last post by Member on July 26, 2018, 10:00:55 AM »
The Tumbledown Creek bridge is closed

Tumbledown Creek Bridge next to Arthurs Lake is closed. The bridge allowing access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake. The deteriorating structural condition is causing the closure.

 

This timber bridge was originally built nearly 15 years ago. It provided access to transmission lines. Hydro Tasmania (HT) left the bridge in place to allow recreational users access to Little Lake and Gunns Lake

 

HT advised that it is unlikely the adjacent ford will be crossable until the lake level reduces in the mid-summer months. HT estimate high clearance vehicles can pass through the ford when the Arthurs Lake water level is more than 1.8m below full supply level. However, it is up to individuals to assess whether conditions are appropriate to allow safe fording.

 

You can find up to date information on the lake levels the Hydro Tasmania website.

 

HT thank you for your patience. If you have any question please contact Anna Blake: anna.blake@hydro.com.au.

Anglers Access getting ready for the new season

We have been busy updating Anglers Access Program signs with the new regulations for the 2018-19 season. This means travelling all over the State.

At the same time, we completed maintenance to navigation lights at major boat ramps.

New Anglers Access Program brochures will be available from the IFS Website and tackle shops before the season opens on Saturday 4 August.

Being a woodworker I didnt have much trouble getting a reasonable shape or finish but soon found out that getting a shape that swam well and caught fish was a different and much longer process

Huntsman Lake is offering good all year fishing

Fisheries officers checked a number of anglers enjoying a perfect winter’s day fishing at Huntsman Lake.Small but well conditioned brown trout were being caught on lures and fly. The lake level is rising slowly bringing fish into the shallows at first and last light. There is plenty of water for launching and retrieving boats.Anglers also reported catching excellent rainbows at Lake Barrington.

Little Pine Lagoon turns it around

The signs from a fishery surveys suggest Little Pine Lagoon is well and truly on the up.

Over recent years, anglers fishing for brown trout at Little Pine Lagoon have experienced a daily catch rate well below the long-term average. The reasons for this are still unclear but survey results are starting to show a change.

Our survey of the trout population during April 2018, found fish of a wide range of sizes. The average weight for fish over 300 mm was 1 044 grams. Eighty five per cent of the catch was larger than 300 mm.

Our annual angler postal survey show the catch rate for the 2017-18 season was the highest recorded at 1.6 fish per day. 

This sets a very positive scene for the coming season!

Illegal fishing in the Coal River

We have had some reports of illegal fishing in the Coal River.Most inland rivers and lakes are currently closed to fishing, including the Coal River for the taking of salmonids.This is to protect brown trout on their spawning run in autumn and early winter.The boundary between where you can and cannot fish is the Seaward Limit. This is the boundary between marine (State) and inland waters.We regulate all bodies of water inland and upstream of declared Seaward Limits. Water and Marine Resources regulate downstream of the Seaward Limits.Seaward limits are generally marked by a physical structure like a bridge, road or white posts. In some places they are only known by map coordinates.The seaward limit for the Coal River isSaltbush Point delineated by a straight line between grid references E 536862 N 5266238 and E 536962 N 5266238 (GDA 94)..If you are not sure about where you can fish there are ways you can check:You can find common seaward limits on our website or in your Tasmanian Inland Fishing Code.The full list can be found on the Tasmanian Legislation website.Email us – infish@ifs.tas.gov.auRing us – 03 6165 3808Most inland waters re-open for fishing on Saturday 4 August 2018.
