Re: Yarra River dredging may cloud bayside

There was a very noticeable drop in flathead catches after the dredging. For a few years I hardly saw any flathead catches off the piers when it used to be impossible to avoid them in the past. It's finally getting better every year and now we're going to do it all over again... 95% is obviously an ...

Re: brighton pier

I've seen bream swimming around the pylons at the platform on the right near the start of the pier. I'm sure they are there, catching them is another question...

Re: An experiment

Needs a column for moonrise and moonset. We've been playing with the idea of moonrise for squid recently, would be an interesting variable to also consider. Personal experience, the calamari always go off when the moon rises. Moon phase matters less, people say full moon is bad but my best session ...

Re: Bait presentation

Bait presentation

I've always wondered what is the best way to rig up a live, small tommy rough targeting snapper in PPB. I usually put a 4/0 circle through the back just behind the head but all that ever happens is the rod will buckle hard but no hookup. Sometimes the tommy will just get eaten with no obvious hit. I...
