Re: Fish unstoppable

Sounds like mulloway to me - except for the bit about not peeling line - you would expect to lose a lot of line very quickly with mulloway. And if they are, you're going to need a lot more than 20lb leader to have any chance at all near pylons ...

Re: BBQ salmon

I usually bake them, but first fillet and then slice the fillet in half down the length to make it thinner. This way you get two half-thickness fillets from each side of the fish. This method makes them easier to cook and reduces the risk of the fish becoming chewy due to baking. I then add lemon sl...

Re: First mulloway for 2019

Not sure about age, but in NSW they have this length vs weight chart (not entirely correct in all cases, though): https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/recr ... ills/weigh

First mulloway for 2019

I haven't been able to fish much over the past year, apart from some Murray Cod trips (mostly due to a building project I've been working on), but finally got a chance to get out for a dedicated snapper / mulloway session yesterday. Incredibly (and this is only the second time in my life it has happ...

Snapper, on the other hand, are mostly a bay fish that come up the river with the tide at certa...

Re: When is dockland king season and month?

The fact is, we built it and they came. They will come again - and when they do, many wondrous hours of pain and frustration will be had by all - and also a couple of fish will be landed.
