Brisbane Waters croc

Recommended Posts

G’day all, after blowing a bearing heading up to chase reds with @Scratchie @Woodsy1 and not being able to fish I finally got the boat back Monday after getting the trailer redone. Had a short shift Tuesday at work so thought I would go and chase some lizards in the local. Fishing was tough but managed approximately 8 flattys with this croc measuring in at 85cms, 1cm shy of my pb. Found we had to move to a few different spots due to wind, which we used to our advantage drifting against the tide. Big girl was released after a quick photo, caught on a 3/8tt jighead and 5 inch Berkeley paddle tail in bloodworm colour.

Forgot to add when the boat went in for service I had taken everything out including landing net which I’d left at home, tense moments trying to lip grip her when she was only barely hooked in the lip

Nice work Tyrone! You certainly know your backyard well. That’s a cracker of a lizard in anyone’s book. You got lucky with no net! Remember the 6P theory! Lol 😝 

cheers scratchie!!!

Lip gripping a big flattie usually means some lost skin. Not to mention dodging the hook on the lure. But no net means you gotta get creative.

well done

Great report & photo bummer about just being shy of your pb but with your knowledge of B. Water’s you’re bound to find a bigger girl in the future
