Re: The great 'monster' trout debate!

Re: Surf fishing attire

Re: Worms & Trout

Need a bit more information on the river, depends on the flow and the depth you could remove the split shot sinker and go unweighted. Have a look around see if you can find any other insects that could be used as bait. Find the most likely sections of water i.e at the end of fast moving water where ...

Cuttlefish Bone Bag/Possession Limit

The bag/possession limit for Cuttlefish is 10.
Does this apply to Cuttlefish bones taken from the beach?
I have birds that love them, but i don't want to get myself in trouble for taking too many at a time.

Re: Trout?

Don't have any secret spots for you, just use google maps find a creek/river with an access point and give it a go. Not sure what you plan on fishing (lures or bait), but its a good time to ...

Re: Trout Season Opening Bright + Goulburn 9th & 10th (latest post)

Good to see you're still getting a few trout... Not a good idea jumping in a river with your waders on either.. Maybe okay if it's shallow water, but too risky in deeper cold water.. take care on the rivers mate, we want to keep reading your trout reports... cheers Adrian Was as an adrenaline fuele...

Re: Trout Season Opening Bright
