Re: Fishing Report

Tough luck mate - maybe give an idea of what rig/bait set up you were using and some of us might be able to give you some advice for next time. At the reservoir I used everything from a hook with a float, lures/spinners and then just a hook. My bait was powerbait and worms. At the pier I used a hoo...

Fishing Report

G'day everyone, I went out today with my 2 mates to Upper Stony Creek Reservoir to show them the spot I have been going to over the last 2 weeks. We got there around 7am and there was already quite a few people there. I bought new gear and was so eager to get a fish finally. We found a beautiful spo...

Sunday Fishing

Re: Another learning experience

I put a spinner on my beautiful rod and just moved up and down the shore. I felt more confident using it because there seemed to be little to no snags compared to my local lake. This bit of all jumped out at me. If you want to catch fish you have to fish some form of structure. I'm not confident if...

Re: Another learning experience

I know exactly how you feel mate. I ve only been fishing for a few months and still wondering why I didn't start earlier. Since I am land based most of the times I get big fat donuts but it only makes me try harder. I have picked up every possible book about knots, rigs and fish species and try and...

Re: Another learning experience

Thanks everyone, I appreciate all the replies and feedback. I am definitely going to try wet my line more often. I love the thrill and adrenaline that pumps through my body even if it was just the hook being stuck on a rock for 1 second, it all makes me go crazy! Lucky to have picked up an amazing a...

Another learning experience

G'day gents, Most of you know me as the beginner fisher and its safe to say I definitely am. I have been planning this trip since last Sunday and I can say the fish game is harder than I thought. I woke up at 4:30 this morning and travelled to Upper Stoney Creek Reservoir once again and arrived to l...
