Re: Silver perch north of the divide.

We caught some in Lake Burrinjuck back in the day and after one lot we cooked the rest went to the cats. Not recommended as an eating fish.

Re: Nostalgia

My first outfit when I was in Grade 4 was a broomstick with some cord and it actually caught quite a few Redfin and Blackfish around the bridge over the Mount Emu Creek just South of Terang near a place where we lived called Dixie. This was soon followed by a serious upgrade to an old white Jarvis W...

Re: Real Snapper Fishing SA - well, for me that is.

Bugatti one of the downsides to getting divorced was losing the right to use my ex-wife's family shack at Black Point - we spent about 20 Christmas's in a row there. I worked out how, when and where to catch both King George and Sand Whiting and even a few decent Flathead from time to time - and of ...

Re: My 35+ year old hand painted spinner still can catch trout..

A few memories in that lot of lures Adrian. Frog pattern flatfish were my lure of choice when trolling at Ecumbene in the early days. Floppy lures worked very well in streams and also in lakes fished very slowly close to the bank just on dark. The red feathered blade spinners or similar were called ...

If you Google "The Banks Kingfish Jervis Bay" you will find plenty of info fishing the banks area. It is not too far North of Jervis Bay Heads.

Re: 2019 Cod Trip - 22/23/24 March

Well one thing for sure - it is not the Darling River at Menindee - first there are no dead cod and other native fish and secondly the river is actually running!!!!! I hope it all goes well.

Re: FISH KILL NEAR MENINDE

The blame game continues with everyone involved with responsibility for water management conveniently blaming the drought. What's new about droughts in Australia and how do 80 to 100 year old Murray Cod suddenly get killed? The simple reason is that while the drought does not help far too much water...

FISH KILL NEAR MENINDE

This video is sickening and shows just what happens not only during a drought but also when not enough water is released into the Darling/Barwon system from the many dams to maintain a flow. Years back we passed though Meninde during a drought and below the weir was a large pool (the lake was bone d...

Re: An Apology

Hi Wil You are clearly a very principled person but on reading what happened you do not need to apologize at all for being let down over a subject very dear to your heart. As you well know people let you down and do not always meet their end of a bargain - as was obviously the case here. That is not...
