Re: ADVISE FOR LAND BASED FISHING

Seems banana prawns are the way to go for the area. What rigs tend to work better down there? Keep in mind gummies thrash about a lot so you have to be careful using two hook rigs. As the tide flow changes you may have to change sinkers. Thats one advantage of the ezi rig, but then there is no reas...

Re: ADVISE FOR LAND BASED FISHING

For jam jerrup, 90cm-1m would be considered a good sized gummy. 1m - 1.1m very good. 1.2m or more very unlikely.

Lack of weed and more bare mud from LL through to Grantville creates a different environment (and few toadies/whiting/squid) than the rest of WP.

Re: ADVISE FOR LAND BASED FISHING

The gummies are in the area actively feeding on crabs.You can fish from the car park on a high, but remember it is very shallow, and they do come...

Re: Carp - The most popular freshwater table fish in the world

It is unnatural for a wild animal to be killed humanly. Natures predators do no euthanize their prey they just rip them apart

Those schools of small pinkies turn up like a plague of piranhas, gobble up everything in site then disappear off elsewhere. Usually undersized/just size, but can be fun for a while but dont hang around the same spot for long

Re: quick Yarra session this evening

I've actually found the mid section of the Yarra (Yarra Glen to Templestowe) to be fishing much better this year than the past couple. I think all that winter water that flowed through gave it a good clean out. Although I will say I have found the city end hard going for Bream this year. Might have...
