Golbourn river fish ID

Any idea what this is? A mate pulled it out of the golbourn - my initial thought was a juvenile Aussie bass but I'm not too sure really.

Re: Is it worth fishing soft plastics at night?

Oh ... and the most important thing I forgot :) As it's dark you can't rely on seeing 'tics' in your line to indicate bites so you have to do a lot by feel. I find it more effective to switch up to tight (or at least tighter) line techniques and take as much slack out of your system as you can. I do...

Re: Is it worth fishing soft plastics at night?

I only fish lures and I only fish at night due to family commitments. Hards, softs they all work - fish have no problems finding your lure at night. I've fished like this for 3 or 4 years. My tips are: fish the bottom fish larger plastics - I like 6" gulp sandworms at night black or dark lures ...

Re: Oh So Close To A Donut Day..

Great report as usual Adrian and well done on avoiding the dreaded donut - experience shows when you can quickly adapt to rapidly changing conditions like light levels :)

Your part of the world looks idyllic though - I think I'd happily trade a few donuts for the opportunity to fish such waters.

Re: No bream were caught while making this report

I feel your frustration Chris but stick in there. A bibbed shad/Minnow like an atomic hardz shad 40 or strike pro Pygmy rolled and twitched close to the bank around the high tide should get you a few fish. I prefer floating lures over suspending. Quite often with a floater if you get into rocks or s...

Re: Cornacarpio's Eclectic Estuarine Escapades

Well done :-D About time you came to your senses ;) You should give soft plastics or hardbody lures a go - plenty of entertainment to be had locally. Easy way to start is just use the same running sinker rig but put a gulp sandworm on the hook then cast and slowly drag it back in along the bottom - ...

Re: Trying soft plastics - Carp

Unweighted is the go. Very light hws if you need to. Other option is to steal an idea from the guys who spin with flies and put your unweighted sp on a leader behind a bubble float - basically "bubble and fly" technique but with an sp. If you're just starting with sp there are easier fish ...
