Re: Patterson river 14 JAN 17

Prawn and yabbies work way better than chicken in the patto for bream. Also you're in for a much better chance for jewies with fresh or live baits. Cant really beat fresh caught squid, but mullet and salmon do well too, live or fillet

Re: Goldfish??

Saw someone catch a really big one guessing around 40cm at Lilydale lake before. Im just happy ive never caught one before. Wouldn't know what to do with it, can't release it, and i would feel bad killing it...

Re: Fushing

Pinky still around. Got a few on Saturday night nearby on high tide around the 30cm mark. Guessing the squid should be hanging around too

Re: Warm night produces whitings 6/1/17

Nice bag! I got a few pinkies on Saturday night nearby but always been too scared to try beach fishing because i dont think i can cast far enough (i think about 50m is my max cast with no wind) but might have to give it a go now

Re: Cumberland River whiting - totally out-fished by the locals

Maybe they were silver whiting? They have no size limits. I've caught whiting on small 2" metal vibes before, slow rolled. Maybe give that a try next time.

Re: Whiting - Frankston / Olivers Hill

Not sure about the whiting but the squid are definitely there right now and in good numbers too

Re: New report says Victorian fisheries in good shape

Sand flathead mullet and garfish are amber but certainly feels like there's more of these guys around than the snapper! Still on a grand total of 0 snapper caught this year :(

Re: Easy ways To lose A Fish

Well if i ever get a big fish to the point where i could have netted it then it still counts as a catch!

But you're so right, lost way too many big fish because i had no net...

Re: Anyone recognise these scales?

Yeah flatties have really small scales. Probably a pinkie but can't rule out red mullet. Was the scale very soft or quite hard and rigid? Soft is the red mullet.

Re: how to use soft plastic lures to target flathead?

On the rocky bit of the break wall, face towards the marina at low tide and sometimes you will spot flatties sitting around. Throw a sp near it and twitch until it bites. Last time i caught a 50cm sight casting like that. Otherwise just do what the others here have mentioned. Flatties arent all that...
