This big...

Bloody hell! Absolute stonker :o_0:


yeah man, said it went 95! he said theres been that many XOS tailor in the lake they've been chomping some of the smaller bream in half!

Wow that’s madness!!! If they are that big they probably would!
He say they go hard at that size? I have only ever caught them up to around 50 cm.


Yeah for a while he thought there was a hungry little bronzie stuck in the lake.

Yep they sure do, thats his misses who caught the fish above and said they had to chase it coz it was gonna spool her. 30min fight too

Damn.man that's some massive tailor.
Looks like a lot of tackle will be lost at the vic bream series if they are still there next month.

Really hope so as It needs a clean out. They all do up that way! I won't be going back until they open up.

Doubtful.

I'm in Orbost and we just haven't had the rain that was forecast. We had a heavy shower about ten minutes ago and that has been it. We've had next to no rain in this area for months.

It is as dry as chaff here. The cockies are trucking in whatever hay and feed they can get their hands on to keep their stock going.

The Snowy is down to a trickle. Upstream from the Princess Highway you can walk across the river from bank to bank and you'd be lucky to get your knees wet.

Mallacoota is further east than here but they've had next to no rain either so it's going to take a massive dump to get water going down the rivers, let alone open the bar.

:water:

7 days, 2 bites in the top lake, almost got one to the boat. Got several bites on the beach but no hook ups. Tried baits, lures, drifting, trolling....
