  1. Today
  2. Yeah, I usually would returned it but was having a bad day! Firstly the engine wouldn't start, then for an entire afternoon all we caught was a moderate sized squid, 1 Tommy, 1 leather jacket and this fish. It was the biggest out of all of them and I really thought someone would have eaten it before!
  3. The trumpet fish has quite different fins from the fish I caught. The tube mouth fish that I researched also seems to have a different mouth to the ones that you have found (looks almost identical in the photos to what I caught).
  4. Yesterday
  5. Looks like a Trumpet Fish..mainly because of the tail, a Tube mouths tail is different from what I could find.. Totally confused.. Trumpet Fish.. Tubemouth/ Tubesnout fish..
  6. Not sure - probably, but doesn't seem worth it. I would have thrown it back anyway.
  7. Yeah that would be one tool where it’s really worth reading the instructions from my brief reading, people carrying them around while plugged in and walking around the prongs while live, weren’t the best ideas
  8. There really are some stupid people in this world
  9. Some word out on a second ticketing system was being used which shut things down.
  10. Thanks Doobie. Yeah I did a bit of a deep dive on weird worm catching methods. there was a product recall in the USA after 30 deaths. People were dying for worms by plugging these device directly into mains power a car battery sounds like a much saner option https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/1993/electric-worm-getter-worm-probe-recalled-by-six-retailers-electrocution-hazard-cited
  11. Tube mouth seems right based on the other posts and doing a Google search (fins, barbel and colours etc match). Anyone know if it can be eaten?
  12. Quick dozen Squid - Metropolitan - Strike & Hook What fish is this ..? - Saltwater Fishing - Strike & Hook
  13. Last week
  14. You may have seen this this link. https://skyaboveus.com/fishing/Ways-to-Get-Earthworms-to-Come-Out-of-the-Ground I like the car battery
  15. Quite vibrant colours. Pretty sure I have seen a very similar fish posted on here in the past, so hopefully someone can help you out.
  16. Yeah seems like a Flute but I thought their body (just before tail) was skinnier. A Tubemouth maybe.
  17. Never even seen one diving over there.
  18. Hey all, New to the forum, so hopefully this is in the right spot. Went fishing off the foot of the Yorke Peninsula over Easter and caught this weird fish- never seen anything like it in SA before. We were fishing in a small dinghy (about 7m water depth). Can anyy help identify it?? I'm thinking maybe a flute mouth but the tail doesn't seem right...
  19. Yeah that’s the sort of action I was after unfortunately I haven’t raised a worm yet
  20. Cool when I get walking again I’ll give you a message
  21. Red eyes no problem. Can do any type of eye really.
  22. https://www.facebook.com/matsupesca/?__cft__[0]=AZVtnwNSB3yBvY8-Elrdo8OU_2djAGr2BDQF1D1k3wufsx-vfzBFE-z5Fus3c19bnHrXVihEu01F0PrT6JfiM4LyRmC9cDfq1R5qkOMPPpHTdA_PmGiYstMqOSsW9wqaK7QBnsmB6S1hZCM5vgMY8d9tmpxh3KQoRgRnE4DIW0YyasT4LEcxJ0K2pSPMkOsQijzwlIwgw7l9912bA863wMWr&__tn__=-UC%2CP-R Not sure if the above FB link will work, but it shows heaps of worms coming out of the ground using a serrated stick being rubbed.
  23. When I can walk without a stick and fish again I may send you a message look good . Can you do a red eye or is it to hard . by the way I’ve caught lots of gulls them picking the lures up
  24. It's my take on local nipper colours. The lines came out thicker than I wanted so I'll remake the stencil.
  25. Mass production! A school of pished pillies Why so many? Well I am marketing them as a fashion accessory, catches fishies and the ladies! I think I've found a clear coat I like but it takes a week to set so it's yet to be proven but it's way better than the other epoxy I tried. Marine varnish was a complete failure for durability, hook rash was terrible.
