  1. Great to see that the CSIRO are still investigating. Hopefully when the virus is released all will go according to plan. I think the idea has a lot of merit. My only concern is the environmental impact with a large number of dead fish in the rivers, and the effect that may have on birds and native fish. I am sure that the CSIRO will have fully considered the outcomes.
  2. Some solid fish there Penguin.
  3. Nice work.
  4. For estuary fishing I am using 6 or 8 lb low PE braided line which is 0.10mm diameter. The FG knot is the best knot I have used with this braid, although it can fail. I now wrap the line 30 times, then 4 half hitches, cut the excess leader, and complete the knot with another 4 half hitches. The best method I have found is to ensure the knot is pulled tight after the first 4 half hitches.
  5. Like Aardvarking i use braid with a leader.
  6. Yes, a sad day for Australian manufacturing, but we are all to blame. In the many reels I own I have only one Alvey. It has been absolutely faultless in its operation, almost indestructible, but I seldom use it, preferring to use either a baitcaster or spinning reel.

  8. I have one similiar to this.
  9. What a difference local knowledge makes.
  10. If your ambition is to catch more fish my mate would tell you to use bait. But, if like me, you like to enjoy the challenge, then artificial lures is so much more enjoyable. Generally we have been using SP, but today we managed a 52cm and a 50cm, and a few small flatties on vibes in water temperatures between 15.4 and 16.7°.
  11. By hiding the fish these so called anglers are admitting they know the rules, but still choose to ignore their obligations. The only way to discourage this type of behaviour is to apply the maximum fine possible.
  12. Interesting and concerning read. Love the Murray-Darling basin. It is a very important area, not only for our fresh water fishing future. Australia’s food bowl needs to be carefully managed.
  13. Bugger. Brand new as well.
  14. That’s bad luck Neil. Could have been worse I suppose. You could have been a couple of more hours up the road and have a major problem. Not much fun missing out on a fishing trip.
  15. Sorry mate. I am not able to make it. I hope you have a great time fishing. If you are ever up this way give me a bell and we will organise something.
