Re: Victoria Smashes Native Fish Stocking Record

I do not want to seem too negative but of 5.9 million native fish released just 7,510 were Macquarie Perch - a highly endangered species with only small, isolated and vunerable populations remaining. While Maccas are not easy to breed in captivity it can be done if the will is there to do it!

Re: Boof Diary 2019

Hi Will let me also add my pleasure that you are back with us and congratulations on the great fish. When I lived in Bunyip in my teens areas of the Bunyip River (even around the Highway Bridge) like in your pic had plenty of good sized Blackfish - hopefully they will re-populate quickly. Am still s...

Re: First boat - $5k budget

You have mentioned 5m and fishing PPB as a start point. You are not going to get everything you may want for $5,000 so you need to consider what is important. There are 3 main components - the boat, the motor and the trailer. You should be able to get a solid hull that may not look all that pretty b...

Re: MACQUARIE PERCH RECOVERY PLAN

Hi Brownie I have seen a couple of reports of single Maccas being caught at Expedition Pass Reservoir in the past year but that is all. I really fail to understand why Fisheries would stock some of the very low number of Maccas they breed each year in a reservoir full of Redfin and with no feeder ri...

MACQUARIE PERCH RECOVERY PLAN

The following is self-explanatory: In 2017, you provided comment on the “Draft National Recovery Plan for the Macquarie Perch (Macquaria australasica)”. Those comments were considered and taken into account while finalising the recovery plan’s development. The Australian Government is pleased to ann...

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 ...
