  1. Hey mate, would love to see a report of your Fiji fishing. Even just some photos would be cool 👍

  2. Nice work James! With a bit of detective work and exploration Fiji has some good but lesser known DIY light tackle fishing options. I have had some fun chasing creeks jacks and been absolutely destroyed in some landlocked ponds! You may inspire me to do a Fiji post from a year or so back. Cheers, Gus
  3. Nice report Katoe, Good results and nice to see responsible harvesting of a modest size fish for a feed! You did better than my first trip to Wyangala. cheers, Gus
  4. Nice one Rick, I was hoping to get there this year but it’s not going to happen!
  5. Nice work Trav, catching catching 4 solid fish like that between you, it probably only takes a little bit of extra luck on the day for a good result to turn into a great result! A lot of boats would have done it tough, but 5 over a metre shows great winter fishing potential! It gathering little pieces to the puzzle here and there, bird activity is one i’m going to keep an eye on. cheers, Gus
  6. Awesome report Dave, I saw it you had posted it a while back, and was looking forward to it but only just sat down to enjoy the read! Interesting re Khaki grunter, never new that, and your right about crocs. Reminds we a lot of a trip I did more than 10 years ago! Although we never got to the Herbert Gorge which looks awesome! Cheers, Gus
  7. Great angling Trav, I was at Wyangler (Grabine area) the same weekend, it was our first trip there, we really struggled, so your results are both disheartening and Heartening. Mostly heartening, as I know there is hope for future trips as the dam/terrain looked so awesome! We fished a mix of light, hopping blades and vibes, even briefly some plastics in the trees briefly as well as spinnerbaits, surface and the odd swimbait, even had a Lucky craft magnum MR on briefly! We got a big carp each on blades in the first 30 mins, then struggled for the rest of the weekend, eventually opting t
  8. Thanks, it was real heart in the mouth stuff, particularly because, I have bent these hooks on much smaller fish, it’s not straight forward to charge them, so I was cushioning every lunge. The 16lb fluro leader faired surprisingly well despite being so deep, I was getting worried about that, but I now wonder if the same theory from big flatties and light leader applies to cod. Every big fish you catch us special, but your first is generally the most memorable, I clearly remember my first big Bass, Barra and now Cod, the last taking me nearly 15 years. cheers, Gus
  9. Hi Rick, This holiday I explored Trout and Cod water in the Oven’s and Bidgee river systems. I’m not familiar with the relative levels but Someone I spoke to indicated the river was up a bit after being very low. Later in the year i’m Planning my first foray into the New England Area, so hoping things improve up that way during the year. Cheers, Gus
  10. Thanks guys, happy to have some good content to post, tell a story, and share it with like minded anglers who can relate to what goes on in a fisherman’s head!. cheers, Gus
  11. I’m in awe of the majestic beast who towed my packraft from pool to pool for several minutes before I was finally able to land her. I was on a family camping trip and with young kids, fishing windows were short, up before dawn 2 days in a row, and back to the tent by 7 or 8am. Not a hit the first morning, then I convinced my wife and kids to come out paddling and trolling in the packrafts for an hour or so during the day, hoping to get my son onto something, but still no interest. The 2nd day I decided I needed to hike further to find less press
  12. Thanks for report, interesting about the Hydrid. cheers, Gus
