Re: The great 'monster' trout debate!

My thinking is that the vast majority of these fish will be gone within a month or two anyway. They are big, slow and dumb. They do not know how to hunt for their own food and are suckers for a lure that drifts past their nose. They have got fat by being hand fed in still ponds. The energy it will t...

Re: Chips

Make your own. Also, think about getting an air fryer. Does chips well, much more versatile than a deep fryer , and healthier.

Re: Top 5 pest fish

Can’t think of too many but those little brown gudgeon things and two inch plague bream do annoy the cr@p out me.

Most of the time I’m just happy to catch a fish... any fish.

Re: Interesting artical. Where do you stand?

Bring it on! I envisage a time when every vehicle on the road is autonomous and able to communicate with other vehicles around it and with the road network. Less traffic jams, less car crashes, better traffic flow.... To me driving is just means of getting from point a to point b. Never got the whol...

Re: Forum for asking Fishing Questions

Most baits work for mullet. My personal favourite is white bait, but have caught heaps on maggots, chicken marinated overnight in tuna oil, bread, dough, sandworm or whatever. Never had trouble with chicken falling apart. Can only assume it’s not properly thawed out (?). Keep your baits and hooks ti...

Re: Tips for Gunnamatta

Bait fish down there quite a bit when I’m feeling lazy and couldn’t be bothered walking the beach. By far the majority of fish caught have taken a surf popper (usually lime green, but blue or red have also taken a few). Take a variety of sinkers with you. Although you want to fish as light as you ca...

Re: Lure casting

If i’m going for distance, i’ll leave a foot or more of line.

If I’m going for accuracy, then just a couple of inches and keep my casts flat.

Re: Carp herpes virus - alarm bells ringing

You can find the study he is referring to here: https://www.pestsmart.org.au/final-report-phase-3-carp-herpesvirus-project-cyhv-3/ What he has failed to mention is that there were high mortalities in the control trials (i.e. non target species exposed to the same treatment just without the virus), ...
