Despite looking for yellowbelly and having no luck I at least picked up a few small reddies, the biggest 30cm, cheers davo

It's an exhilarating feeling catching a fish
But it's an even better feeling releasing them

Today I headed out to meet Jim (Rodbender) on a channel below Waranga Basin. We threw some bait rods in with worms and yabbies as bait. Shortly after getting there we had a visit from a Tiger snake.

Bait fishing was slow so I started throwing some soft plastics around which produced 6small reddies, the best 29cm followed by 25cm and they went south from there.

While I was further up the channel I saw something in the water near Jim, another snake, A brown around 6ft long, I went down to where Jim had his rod and there it was on the bank a few feet from me so I moved it on away from Jims rod. Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of it in my haste to get out of the area, :-D . cheers davo

That wasn't a 6ft brown snake Dave it was Jim's latest surface lure from Trelleys :-D
Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t go fishing. :water:
