Re: Salmon around Shep/Nagambie

I have fished the 'Cattanach', or the 'cat' as we refer to it for around 30 years. It was my favourite spot until a few years ago for Brown trout. Another guy I met there has fished it for about 50 years I believe. We both believe it has seen better days. There have been reliable reports occasionall...

Re: A report about...carp!!

There must be somewhere you can leave the bait trap, while your working. I'm assuming there's yabbies in the canals Gra Yes there is! This is where I got my last lot from which gave me confidence (which turned out to be false) that I would get them elsewhere. When I did get them at work, I put in a...

Native Fish Aus...Shepparton talk!

Hi all When fishing last week with Dave I received a phone call from my sister regarding a post on the local council's facebook page. She thought I may be interested in an upcoming talk about native fish. Interesting thing was, despite the fact she does not fish, she said to me that I think they hav...

A couple natives!

Hi all I was going to go for a session chasing redfin which meant a drive of about an hour but decided to fish another location on the way with a lot less travel. I had purchased some worms so this was the bait that was going to be drowned. Things were a bit slow bite wise but then this customer cam...

A report about...carp!!

Hi peoples I headed out yesterday for a carp kill in a northern Victorian creek. I had 2 yabbies to take for bait and assumed I would get more there...a mistake I have made a few times now over the last month. Yabbies may not be the preferred bait by many for using carp based on the individuals pers...

Re: A report about...nothing!

The fishless trips don't worry me dazz! Often near the end of these sessions I am thinking ahead for my next foray! Gra, at the moment I use wet cat food in the shrimp nets with gum leaves or wattle leaves by mistake (done it once) as was pointed out to me the other day! Normally this works but has ...

Re: Channel meet up with April Fool

So...after the fishing disaster that was Friday evening, I ventured out Saturday with 'Dangerous Dave'. Much of the story has been told but here is the one and only fish I got! Yella 50.jpg As with other attempts at shrimp collecting of late...it failed! At this first location we tried it was rather...

Re: A report about...nothing!

I went out Friday evening for a session. The plan was to get a yella on this! Lure 60.jpg This part of the plan did not suceed!!!! The lure chucking was also going to give me time to allow some shrimp or yabbies to accumulate in my bait trap. This was also a dismal failure! I am not sure what is hap...
