A Golden Moment

Sometimes it's not about the fish that we catch, or don't catch, but about the things we see. This afternoon I fished Sawtells Inlet and was happy to be catching mullet for bait. About 5.00 pm, just nearing sunset, a small flock of white ibis flew by and at exactly that precise moment a ray of red, ...

Re: A Lang Lang Gorilla

Thanks guys. Lang Lang is a funny old place. More often than not the water is muddy and it's a very shallow beach. Even at high tide you can still only be fishing in water no more than a metre deep. It never looks "fishy" yet anything and everything can turn up there at times. The fishing ...

Re: A Lang Lang Gorilla

TLT, The rod was an oldish Jarvis Walker rod, not a top end model. It may well have been that it's had a knock or two in its day and with the power of the shark a pre-existing weak spot may have well called it quits. I'm not brand loyal and there are so many good rods out there these days that we're...

Re: Help

Balnarring, anywhere within 250 to 300m left of the yacht club, any further around and it can get weedy, it's still fishable but not fun if your not used to it. Merricks, either side of the yacht club, there is reef on both sides, but you still have 500 to 700m of beach to choose from. I'm sure if ...

Re: A Lang Lang Gorilla

"Great report whisker are you sure it was a 7gill as they don't have a dorsal fin?"

Very sure rb85. Dorsal fin may be the wrong terminology but it had that back fin set way back towards the tail.

The business end was a very broad blunt head. General colouring was a dark muddy grey/ brown.

A Lang Lang Gorilla

I went down to Lang Lang Beach today in search of a gummy or two and got a lot more than I bargained for. Right at the top of the tide, about 1.30 pm I had a screamer of a run and came up solid with something going like a steam train. My first thoughts were that it was a big ray but when something h...

Re: Opinions on Breakaway Cannon please.

Sorry, it wasn't the breakaway cannon, that you have posted about. It was the cast master, anyway, here is the thread http://www.fishing-victoria.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=16431 Thanks Brett for looking up that post. I did look into one of those devices but thought it was a bit overpriced for wh...

Re: Opinions on Breakaway Cannon please.

LOL Basti.

The potato cannon would be a lot of fun but the device I'm talking about is nothing like that.

I'm adding a photo of it plus a YouTube clip that explains it.
