Re: Cornacarpio's Eclectic Estuarine Escapades

A few more "Toothies" from the 'Nong today (and a Toady and a bloody big Goby). This spot reminds me so much of a 'special spot' I used to fish in the Wimmera River when I was a kid, when there seemed to be a few more species about besides Reddies and Carp (Yellowbelly, Silver Perch, Catfi...

Re: Cornacarpio's Eclectic Estuarine Escapades

'Twas a rip-snorter of a day, so I decided to head to my new-found and favourite hole. Unfortunately, it was a low-tide when I arrived (I find that the level of the tide hasn't had too much of an impact in my estuary angling adventures so far) and the Bream weren't quite as prolific as my first few ...

Re: Willy town - warmies

Hats off to you mate, ive been fishing there for over 10 years and my total tally for puffers are 5 and you sir smashed that number in a day. :rofl: If it's any consolation donutcrooks you have now caught more puffer fish than me! I try to avoid the Warm Pies on the weekends now for the reason you ...

Re: Cornacarpio's Eclectic Estuarine Escapades

Your post made me 'lol' donutcrooks. Congratz on the first fish. Was it a Bream? I probably will be hitting up the Wrangers Cavern before it cools down too much, but I am quite determined to find somewhere a bit more discreet along the 'nong...

You used to be so cool. I may have changed my target species lately, but I wouldn't be caught dead using a lure*

*May or may not be trying to get my first Bream on a lure

Re: Cornacarpio's Eclectic Estuarine Escapades

I am the proud owner of 1 Ecogear and 1 StrikePro lure (as a kid and just before I joined this forum, I was actually a keen lure fisherman). I even bought some Gulp sandworms on a fellow forum members advice a few weeks ago. Trouble is Marcus (my telescopic rod) isn't particularly well suited to the...

Re: Cornacarpio's Eclectic Estuarine Escapades

Just the one small miserly Bream today from my new-found favourite spot. As usual, there were too many fisherpeople there and I wasn't able to get to the exact spot I wanted... I exhausted my bait supply from last time, and being a public holiday I had to go to 7-11 and buy some exorbitantly priced ...

Re: Cornacarpio's Eclectic Estuarine Escapades

I headed out today with the best intention of trying a new spot along the Maribyrnong, so I got on the track under Footscray Rd. and started cycling upstream looking for somewhere 'fishy'. I pulled up along one of the bridges and cast a line out, but after 10-15 minutes of not even a nibble, I was i...
