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 - ...
