Winter fishing is boiling | The lawyer

Sport, local sport,

It’s starting to cool, but the fishing is still hot. There are a variety of different species to catch just along the coast, whether you’re on land or on your boat / kayak, including black-backed salmon. Boat Harbor, the mouth of the Inglis River, Leith, Lillico and the mouth of the Rubicon River are all places to visit. This time of year is also ideal for hunting large salmon. These guys generally aren’t too fussy, so a silver wobbler around the 30g mark thrown or trolled will often work. Soft plastics are also a great way to have fun with salmon. The good thing about plastics is that they can handle the entire water column. If you want to skip it at the top you can and if you want to sink it all the way down you can too. Soft plastic is a very versatile way of fishing not just for salmon, but a whole host of different ways. We are also seeing a good run of Winter White along the northwest that is accessible to everyone, whether on land or from a boat / kayak. Generally, around the three to eight meter mark, the patches of sand between the weed beds are where they like to hang out. A simple whiting rig with a squid strip on each hook and your chances are good. Hot spots can be found at Wynyard Old Harbor and the beaches around East Devonport / Port Sorell. Snapper are still on the rise too and it’s worth thinking outside the box and running some different rigs here as snappers can be picky. Again, Stanley / Wynyard and Devonport are great areas for a crack. The 21/22 trout season is approaching so we’re pumped up and can’t wait. The early season should bring some great fishing opportunities. A month later, it’s time to take a look at all of your gear to make sure you are happy with it. Check your waders for holes or delamination and make sure your trailer lighting and boat are in tip-top shape for a big season when you take the boat with you to the opening weekend. Gadget of the week: Ocean Legacy Hybrid Contact Jigs in weights 40, 60 and 90g. A fantastic slow pitch jig.
