Re: magnetic island fishng of the rocks

Terrific spot that. I was there last August, walked into a dive centre and for just 10 bucks was fitted up with snorkeling gear to use all afternoon! Entered at a couple of beaches and was spotting heaps of fish on the reefs, including a juicy looking coral trout just 20m from the beach.

Re: Being friendly to animals

While trout fishing the creek at the back of our farm once I saw an echidna approaching, so I stayed dead still to observe it. Low and behold it hobbled right up to me and began licking me Blundstones. Kinda reminded me of an ad that was screening a few years earlier...

Re: Anaconda. Watch the prices at the checkout.

All I can say is $39 for a fishing shirt Yeah, the UV 50 ones. The wick dry types. Better than a normal shirt in hot weather here. Also after you get melanomas cut out and told to cover up by your doc, its advice I like to take. $39 bucks to know im covered is cheap peace of mind. Each to their own...

Re: Anaconda. Watch the prices at the checkout.

All I can say is $39 for a fishing shirt Is that a lot or a bargain? Personally for boat fishing I just go with a old high vis shirts that work supplies for nuffin... I'd guess this is more some kind of system error than any intentional attempt to rip someone off. I reckon so. I'm usually pleasantl...

Re: Mulloway at St Leonards

Good shot by the looks of it with an entry just behind the gills. What's the range on them spear guns?
I did a little snorkeling on Magnetic Island a few months ago and was surprised at how I could almost get within arms length of barramundi & coral trout, plus a range of less desireables.

Re: Upper Coliban Reservoir Report

I've got my eyes on the Campaspe, Coliban, Deep Creek and Jacksons Creek but have yet to fish any of them. The Campaspe seems the most likely to my naked eye and looks relatively easy to access, wouldn't mind floating a few worms around there and seeing what strikes. The Campaspe was ok, used to fi...

Re: Upper Coliban Reservoir Report

Was thinking of hitting up Lauriston after but was too lazy. Was wondering if anyone else fishes the water storages around Kyneton? I've been catching plenty of reddies but curious to know if anyone is taking anything else. I am from Kyneton, grew up on a sheep farm out of town. I used to fish the ...

Re: Squid Size/Numbers

Looks like they were just after active jigs, aka needs to be moving. also try leaving a sleeper jig in the rod holder and letting it move around with the boat movement. as for sizes a size 3 jig is a good start. go 3.5 if the squid are bigger. Yep, I was using 3 and 3.5. I think I was getting them ...
