Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

Well done mate - nice catches and an unexpected surprise. Always amazing how a locations results can vary from day to day.

Now this may be a silly question but........

Over the years I have been a catch and release fishermen - bring them in, a quick photo and back they go. However after some recent good sessions on the Yarra, I have been thinking that maybe I should keep a few reddies or a trout or two for a feed. So might be a silly question - but what is the bes...

Re: Cranka crabs

I have two of them - have tried them for Bream on the Nong and Yarra - no joy yet, but the word is they work well.
I figure it is just another example of me being a bad lure fisher :rofl:

float fishing

Over the years I have managed to collect a number of floats but have never used them.
As a teenager I used to fish for roach in the Plenty River, but that was the last time I used them.
So does anyone do a lot of float fishing and under what circumstances?

Yarra fishing was good tonight, fisherman was rubbish

Hit Pound Bend tonight - was all enthused to try some hard bodied lures I had.....well that lasted about half a dozen casts and they were all claimed by snags.......I am such a rubbish lure fisherman. So it was back to good, old, reliable bait - scrub and compost worms. After about 20 mins something...

Re: Complete beginner fishing the yarra

Went past the Yarra yesterday at Yerang - she is still running very high - going to take a few weeks of no rain before we see it settle back to Summer levels and being fishable again
