Do Fish Sleep?

Do Fish Sleep? I'm aware that some reef fish like to tuck themselves away in crevasses or caves for the night but do they really sleep? What about fish that live in waters with a constant current or what about open ocean pelagic's? I've always assumed that they need to keep moving to get water passi...

It's good to see that the Maccas are still there. Used to love catching them. There were some great spots just behind the old ti...

Lang Lang Beach 14/03/2017

High tide was due at 4.00 pm so i got there at 1.30 and fished it right through until 6.30 pm. There was just a light southerly blowing into the beach which...

Fresh From The Mint

Managed to hobble out today for a bit of a fish. I have a badly sprained strapped up ankle right now so I managed to park the car within ten mtrs of the water. The least distance i have to walk right now the better. As is usual at the lake i was at there were plenty of carp on the chew. Most fish we...
