Game fishing activity continues down East, with anglers going after southern bluefin tuna being rewarded with plenty of action.
Not much more than seven kilometres to seaward of Beaumaris Beach near Scamander, Pulfers Bank was one productive hotspot last week.
Some of these bluefin weigh 180kg or more and one recently took four hours to be played to the boat.
Boaters are also going deep to haul up pleasing numbers of hefty striped trumpeter.
Although surf anglers have been finding catches patchy near St Helens, those fishing in Georges Bay are bagging a wide range of species.
While King George whiting are now few and small, compensating are the usual Australian salmon as well as bream, trevally, mullet, mackerel and leatherjackets.
Inland and preparing for the brown trout season set to start on August 3, the Inland Fisheries Service has been transferring trout to various waters including Four Springs Lake.
Into Four Springs last month went more than 2200 wild brown adults, most from Great Lake with some from Lake King William.
Then for those wanting to fish for trout now, Brushy Lagoon was stocked last Friday with 107 wild brown adults from Great Lake.
This follows Brushy's stocking with 1500 domestic rainbow adults on May 23.
The first of ten new toilets at trout fisheries was officially opened at Penstock Lagoon recently while toilets at eight other waters should be available by the time the brownie season opens including one at Lake Sorell.
Then a new pontoon for the Lake Leake boat ramp is among four inland projects to be funded by Marine And Safety Tasmania and local councils.
