Re: sanctuary lakes bream

Try a running sinker (or weightless) with crab for bait for for larger bream.

Re: TREES FOR FISH EVENT Maribyrnong River Monday 20 May, 2019

Regardless of the presentation, this is an absolutely brilliant idea. It should be policy along the Yarra, too - no trees, no cod (and down lower, no snags, no estuary perch either). This will benefit many species both in the fresh and saltwater sections of the river.

Re: Warmies visit and Massive unknown fish again.

I don't know - on light gear like that it could just as easily be a pinkie. I've been landing them up to 50cm of late, and they have a surprising amount of power on the first run, and when you're land based, it's easy to end up snagged in rocks, etc.

Re: Warmies

I've caught one there before (a 7 gill, that is) - not as big as that one, though! By the way, congratulations on the 57cm flathead - that is a beast!

Re: Snowy River To be Artificially Opened

Apparently some years back (early 20th century) the entrance used to be right down the end of the estuary (past where the blue hole at French's is today). I wonder whether that was because the water used to be allowed to back up to the point where it could spill into the relic low lying parts of the...

Re: When will small pinkie leave the PPD?

Just out of interest, does anyone use the term "squire" for the larger model pinkies anymore?

Re: When will small pinkie leave the PPD?

Port Phillip Bay is a fish nursery - there are always small fish present, as well as adults.

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...
