That's it.... I'm definitely a bite fisho

Spent a couple of afternoons on the Yarra this Easter weekend - throwing SPs, was determined I would finally work them out. But nope not a fish, no strikes or even follows. So I admit defeat.... I am clearly a bait fisho and I am just not going to crack the SP code. On the upside the river is flowin...

Re: Yarra recon and cod

Nice report Chris - Yarra access is always an issue, steep banks, muddy approaches, blackberries and scrub, bloody big tiger snakes.... or farm land blocking access. But when you work into some of those off the track spots the rewards are worth it. Furthest up I have heard of cod being seen was arou...

Re: SP jig head recommendations

Maybe tell us specifically what do you want to use sp for ChrisD. Per my first post - Location for fishing will of course be long the Yarra, if that makes a difference to the jig head. Trout & Redfin being the prime targets. Sorry another question - does using a snap/swivel make any difference to t...

Re: SP jig head recommendations

Thanks All
I will take all this on board and decide on jig heads shortly.
Fingers crossed over the Easter break I can get out and give them a crack again.

SP jig head recommendations

Most I look at always look like the kook is massive, compared to the hooks I would use bait fishing. Location for fishing will o...

Soft Plastics continue to frustrate on the Yarra

I made another attempt to get my head around soft plastics today.....headed to Worri Yallock with one rod and plenty of soft plastics to throw. It was tough not to grab the second rod and some worms...just in case :oops: After an hour working along the Yarra - I had lost more jig heads an plastics t...

Re: Old, handmade spinners

Live from Eildon now, have thrown the spinners a few times but after one near snag decided that keeping them is better than losing them.
