    How/when to use Atomic K9 walker

    Change the Fluorcarbon for Mono. Mono floats, Fluorocarbon sinks. If you’re using surface lures, you can affect the action using a sinking leader.

    Bass v EP

    Just to throw more confusion into the mix....could be a hybrid. I reckon Bass though. Most hybrids I’ve got look more like a Bass (body and colour) but with the scooped head, but not as scooped as most Perch. It all gets confusing if you overthink it. Your best bet is to say ‘well, I got this in total fresh, it’s a Bass. Or, I got this in salt, it’s a Perch.’ And yes, I know they cross over. I’ve gotten Perch way up and Bass way down.

    Bass have a white edge on their pelvic fins, Perch are all dark. Perch have a bigger, blacker eye and the scooped forehead. Once you catch a few of both, you’ll notice the differences every time.

    Fishing the Georges River - Kayak

    I fish around there a bit, just keep at it and you’ll find fish. The best piece of kayak advice I can give you is to take an empty bottle with you, for when you need to ‘go’. Saves trying to find a suitable place to get out of the yak. Best thing I ever did! The ol Pee bottle! 😂😂

    Bathurst fishing tips.

    It sure is a shame, we definitely need a good drop! I’ll keep at it though. Even though no fish, we did have a good weekend away from Sydney.

    Bathurst fishing tips.

    No good, Frank. Stopped at Flat rock camp ground on my way out. Spoke to a bloke who was leaving, he said he’d been there for a few days and got some good fish, all on fly. I fished with plastics and didn’t get a touch. I then drove to the place you told me about. I think I found it, but there was hardly any water there and it looked tough going to even get to the water line on the northern side of the road. Drove back into Bathurst and stopped at a shop for some advice. Got given a few spots but all I saw was Carp. It hasn’t deterred me from trying for Trout, I’ll put in some more research and see what I come up with. Wentworth Falls lake and Lyell are my fall backs.

    I’m actually heading up this weekend. So if anyone has any more advice, feel free to throw it my way.

    Cheers Frank! That sounds like an option, I’ll have a look at that for sure.

    G’day gang. Thinking of taking a drive out to Bathurst soon, not so much to fish, more for a day road trip, but I will have a rod and a box of lures with me. With limited time, I won’t be able to explore much area, but I have looked at the water where the highway goes over the river, just coming into Bathurst, on my way to the V8’s, and it looks like it could hold some fish. Any locals willing to throw me a few options or a little knowledge, I’d appreciate it immensely! Cheers, Adam.

    Dropping a fish is better than snapping a rod! I’m still gutted....

    Fly casting lessons/help

    I’ll definitely check out John Wilson, I’ll have a look online for some vids. I have one of Lefty Kreh’s dvds at home, I’ll have to re-watch that also. I was actually trying some side casting the other day, felt really awkward, but I’ll stick with it. Watching videos is a good start, but I’d really like someone to actually watch me and tell me my problems and show me how to fix them. The rod I’m using is a 6w Penn XDS. I also have another (cheap fly kit) rod, but that just feels like a wet noodle. Thanks for the tips mate, much appreciated!!

    Fly casting lessons/help

    G’day guys. I’ve taken the long wand out the past couple of sessions and I’m getting addicted! Getting my PB Estuary Perch (40cm fork) last Sat morning on fly, and on a homemade popper, really got the bug to bite. Is there anyone in the Cronulla area that could help me out with a few lessons, or just help with some bad habits that I’ve probably learnt by teaching myself? I can throw line ok, but I think I do need some pointers to help me get better. Being in the kayak, sitting so low in the water doesn’t help too much either....If anyone is willing to help me out, feel free to get in touch! Heres a pic of my PB, and the popper that tempted her to bite! Cheers, Adam.
