Re: Yea

Looks very fishy and there would likely be an odd Macca in the deeper holes as well.

Re: Eucumbene river 7th-12th June '17

Lake Eucumbene is receiving a guaranteed 150,000 Rainbows a year at present but all the Browns are wild. As to Brook Trout Lake Jindabyne receives 50,000 fingerlings a year and some reasonable fish are caught from time to time but as far as I know Lake Tantangara has never been stocked with them so ...

Re: Fish ID Required

The other members are 100% correct. They are very common in South Australia particularly where there is weed and low reef - even in very shallow water. They just sort of sit immobile in the weed if you swim close to them and we have even speared a few with crab spears but have never caught one. The ...

Re: Sand-bank slammer

Great to see some healthy Maccas - next time I am back in Australia I aim to spend a few days in the rights places. It is easy to see why Maccas were called "white eyes" in the old days. Your first pic really shows this.

THE VALUE OF A GOOD CREW

I had a lot of sympathy for some members who have lost some large SBT and other fish lately. When my fishing mate and I started game fishing along the NSW South coast we lost fish for every reason imaginable - some quite ridiculous when I look back at it. For example sitting behind a trawler that ha...

Re: Rabbit

Ratbag we did the same thing - if we caught a rabbit with mixo in a trap or when we were ferreting if we were along the river we would often hang it from a branch over the water. After a couple of weeks you could almost bet on a trout or redfin or two being where the maggots would fall in. We also u...

Re: Flushing toilets

This post reminds me of the days when we fished on the shelf off Bermagui in a 5m Quinnie Fishmaster and occasionally would have a female on board. Some would happily use a bucket while we looked the other way while a couple crossed their legs and waited it out! Once we got back in they would be off...
