  1. I grew up in Narrandera and caught my first fish in the bidgee when I was 2(with a bit of help) believe it or not it was a rainbow trout probably washed down stream from good floods the previous winter!
  2. Hey BN it's always good to read your reports they do make me homesick though. Maybe that carp has a touch or the herpes virus been going round?

    Dart any good to eat

    Paddy T On a side note to the taste of fish versus their diet. Why do you think silver drummer taste so different to black drummer?

    Beachworms in North sydney

    There is a legendary beach/rock fishing guide of Italian name who was catching beach worms at Manly on the weekend just gone. The worms will stick their heads up in seconds if they are there. Getting them out of the sand is the tricky part. In busy places the worms my be a little more timid.

    Shore jigging vs halco twistys

    shore jigging lures tend to flutter more than twisties/ raider type lures as they sink so can be more effective when "jigged" you can let your twisty sink to the bottom and "jig" retrieve it but you will most probably lose a few lures buy getting snagged on rocks doing this (single hooks may reduce this) get to know the depth of the area you fish and count as the lure sinks to regulate the different depths you want the lure to be as with any lure casting you can impart many different actions by using the rod and reel to jerk, twitch, pause, sink, drag and crank to name a few. experiment until you get a bite or your arms fall off trying

    Rod and reel advice

    I've got the 9 foot RVLI902SP and 10 foot RVLC1002SP (this is a heavier rod than you mentioned. rated at 8-15kg) I can't fault either of them never had a catana so can't comment if you can afford the t curve get it what reel and line will you use with it if you're casting metals more than baits maybe consider a 9 foot rod (unless you defo need the 10)

    Trout Lures

    small minnows, soft plastics and vibes could all work if you have lures for bream/flathead they should do or the humble old garden worm either on the bottom or under a float

    I thought they were supposed to be very tasty to eat. Have you had a bad experience Jon or just don't rate them?
  14. Houdini


    yeah that was me If you got one on a metal its a wonder those lads didn't get one even if using a sinker the squids were angry that night

    When for a quick flick after work last night at Bondi after seeing ink all over the rocks down there on the weekend. There was a backpacker already there with a K-mart combo and squid jig just packing up I got a squid first cast and he wasn't happy Jan, he had been there 3 hours for a doughnut I ended up keeping 5 good ones let some babies go and missed a few as well sorry for the kitchen sink photo but it was dark as a coal miner when I left the rocks gotta be happy with some hoods for a feed and heads for bait
