Re: Yarra near Healesville

Must have been a busy few hours - great to see that the Maccas are continuing to do well in the Yarra.

Re: Stuff that happens while fishing

We all have our fishing disasters - being chased up a tree by an angry bull was no fun! One night at our club I was doing a demonstration of how to tie up Mullet as swim baits for Marlin. The Mullet I was using was still half frozen. Somehow I managed to put a large bag needles through the Mullet an...

Re: The great 'monster' trout debate!

These very large brood fish are not used to fending for themselves and many will very quickly lose condition and between those that are caught and natural mortality I suspect in a few months you would never know that it happened. Perhaps a few will survive in the longer term and those should certain...

Re: Tiger trout soon to hit victorian lakes!

Trout Hunter you may be interested to know that Macquarie Perch were also translocated into the Yarra - where they have established a viable self-supporting population and are used by Native Fish Australia (Vic) as the brood stock for their Macquarie Perch breeding. I very much enjoy trout fishing m...

Re: Tiger trout soon to hit victorian lakes!

I have nothing against Tiger Trout but it truly sucks that at Snobs Creek they produce a few thousand Macquarie Perch a year from wild stock and will not spend money on serious research to solve the issues involved in a captive breeding program that will produce significant numbers of juvenile fish....

Re: Is this site becoming redundant?

From my point of view the answer is definitely NO! Every post is viewed by hundreds of members within 24 hours and that says a lot. Forums such as Fishing Victoria have a wealth of information both historical and new and whenever a new member has asked for advice almost always it has been provided. ...

A couple of very healthy Maccas there - a very nice by-catch indeed. It is easy to see why they were called "white eyes".

Re: Boat Advice

Millzee am unsure just how experienced you are at offshore fishing so apologies if this this is teaching you to suck eggs. A beautiful calm day out wide can turn bad very quickly and a 20 knot offshore wind will kick up short steep seas very fast making a return trip from out wide very uncomfortable...

DIFFERENT SHAPES OF FISH

I was looking through a few old fishing pics and came across 2 Tigerfish pics - the second was caught in the lower Zambezi where there is a lot less current, plenty of weedy side channels and it seems much more to eat. The first was caught in an area of the upper Zambezi where the river is much fast...
