Re: RABBITS OF FRESH WATER IN AFRICA AND ELSEWHERE

Sad to say they are also in several rivers in Western Australia as well.

Re: Big Blackie

That is an incredibly fat Blackfish - I have caught them in the Bunyip River system and Mt Emu Creek but nothing like that size or shape.

RABBITS OF FRESH WATER IN AFRICA AND ELSEWHERE

A couple of Red Tilapia - Southern Australia is lucky as in most places the water is too cold for Tilapia. At least they taste better than Carp but do not fight as well.

Re: Crowd Funding for Fish

Thanks for highlighting the issues with Maccas - the more attention they get the better. To answer the question about breeding Maccas well they are not the easiest fish to breed by far but they have been successfully bred and most of the Macquarie Perch stocked in the Ovens were bred in Victoria.

FISH FOR THE FREEZER

After chancing a very boggy road in my Toyota Prado 4 WD I found the Tilapia in a small creek going crazy and after 2 hours had 31 good sized fish in the net. I never even got to use my second rod and ran out of worms! The rain also stayed away - has been a very heavy wet season here in Zambia. Admi...

Re: Fishing simulator

A great and very cheap "fishing simulator" is a 4 gallon paint tin lid with a handle in the centre. You use this when trolling for game fish and wait until whoever is on strike is lying down asleep. You tie the line to the handle and slip it over the stern and let out 100 m or so of line -...

Re: Moving axles forward advice.

I had a 5 m Quinnie Fishmaster with a 70 HP Evinrude for a long time so very similar to your rig. The Quinnie towed well with about 45-50 kg on the tow ball. I also support the idea of shifting the winch post as long as you do not get a lot of overhang at the stern of the boat. You should not have t...

FISHING IN THE RAIN

It is wet season here in Zambia and this morning spent much of my fishing trip huddled under an umbrella. The Tilapia were biting well though and I kept 19 with the largest at 32 cm so some good eating fish. The pic is of a Red Tilapia about 28 cm - they turn grey quickly after dying.
