Re: tough going on the Maribyrnong Saturday 9th Feb

Couldn't see any bream this trip - water was fairly dis-coloured after the rain.
Will hopefully get back there soon enough and have better luck

It was one very tough session resulting in donuts and a screaming headache....... :o_0: Temperature was perfect and when the sun came out it was great - but the bloody windy was howling and unrelenting , and there was...

Re: Portsea pier on a falling tide?

Went to Portsea today and had a little over an hour of fishing. The Pier was fairly quiet with only half a dozen fishers on it. I took one rod to throw squid jigs....and couldn't help myself....still had a baited rod as well. And of course, the bait of choice ...... compost worms..... Well the squid...

Re: Yarra, Wonga Park 31st Jan

No luck in the end, tried a few pools along the river but just could not get a bite.
Oh well - there is always next trip.

Yarra, Wonga Park 31st Jan

Re: Yarra @ Millgrove Saturday 26th

Good old compost worms - they are my go to bait for pretty well every species in the Yarra, from Warbuton all the way to the city. If I manage to find scrub worms I use them but they are few and far between in the garden. As always I have tried lures - with Redfin and trout on offer it is always wor...

Yarra @ Millgrove Saturday 26th

Wandered up to Millgrove this evening to see what was biting. Was disappointed on arrival to find that there must have been a water release from one of the dams upstream as the river was easily up 12inches on the normal Summer level. Straight away I had my doubts anything would be biting, but after ...
