  3. Looks like the weather was good on the day,,, well done to all the helpers.. Bjorn held himself back because of the old saying "too many cooks spoil the broth" cheers Adrian
  4. Had a reasonably good spin session just over a week ago chasing trout in the tannin stream again.. One of my better spin session for quite some time.. Wild windy weather has kept me home of late... hopefully I'll be back in a river in a day or so.. cheers Adrian
  5. I was set up. They all conned me. It was all planned to get me. I feel no
  6. Hi mate. Hopefully getting a session in this Sunday. Happy to flick a southie lure about, if you still need YFW lure testers, if not all good.
  7. I'm doing a great job of managing everything You don't see Southie on the bbq because he burnt everything and for that photo KS had to be peeled off of the ice box, his favourite resting place for the day. Doobie, I'm not going there and Softy get's a thumbs up because he liked my home brew It was a bloody crack up of a day, endless laughs all round with a great bunch of fellas. We had way more fun than anyone else there Doobie possibly had too much fun
  8. Yesterday
  9. Just getting a feel at who would be interested and seems i have quite a bit of interest in them... For now here is a couple i have been working on and practicing my skills on... Will post pics of the Topwater lures later on when i have finished with them.
  10. I had a look at these today.. great blanks and will work well on the YFW no doubt how they are painted!
  11. If you can post some pics you might get more replies
  12. have a look in the background at how hard Bjorn was working
  13. It was a good day indeed. All of us, Bjorn, Softy, Southie, and Kidney Slapper did a great job. As Softy says, we had a great number of laughs. And yes, if anyone wants to join in on future BBQ's, just let us know. And yes I did most of the work
  14. Today was a total success.. the A-team ran like clock work as usual.. cheers to the good day with plenty of laughs, even if they where at the expense of Doobie. [emoji23] If anyone would like to help out on the strike hook bbq at an event let us know, it's more fun then work. [emoji106] KS and Doobie working hard... Or hardly working?

  15. Last week
  16. I'd be happy to help, I'm always around them and chase them a bit further west than most. I'm in Adelaide until the 23rd and will come back again at Christmas, so if you're that way inclined, let me know and I'll sort something out. Happy to help.
  17. I will help out if needed , I love catching the YFW
  18. Will be my first fishing comp! Bonus that it supports a great cause too
  19. Cheers Floatman it was a good afternoon and yeah i was very surprised to land a catfish
  20. No worries. I remember, even though I had probably had a few sherbets by then. We are leaving here Saturday and departing there the next Sunday.
  21. Great fishing there LL, had your clutch set perfectly, that second fish just didn't want to come in, but they were all rippers especially the catfish. If you were above the weir, which I think you were, that is quite unusual to get a cattie there. Don't think you will forget that session in a hurry... WELL DONE great to see!
  22. The problem Peatop is PIRSA is not going to say that the executive government (labor and Liberal) was giving our executives short term bonuses based on meeting KPI's related to increasing the output of the fishery on a yearly basis which encouraged us to promote over-fishing in order for our executives to receive bonuses. What they will do is obsfucate by blaming spawning events or any number of things that distract from the truth.
  23. Hi wurt, no snakes spotted. But it was a cold day. Funny you say that i was only telling a mate the day after how many snakes i spot summer time in the hills. - leaping off banks. Defently keeps you on your toes. Walking around the light river in padocks is worse. The browns are huge! A decent pair of waders is a must for me.

  25. Yeah It has its uses I originally bought it to glue lots of little rocks to PVC pipe in a fish tank - but it didnt work well in that application - there could have been some driver error but the rocks didnt hold onto the slick pvc - I ended up using silicon instead. Its elasticity was much better suited to gluing fairly smooth rocks to pvc pipe But I get the feeling there is a variety of different hot glue sticks you can buy, with different formulas and hardness's - and that roughing up the surfaces, is quite important while gluing slick surfaces together
  26. Ill put my hand up.... Im up North and chase them often.. Mike
  27. I've joined a Victorian fisheries program called the recreational fisherman's diary program, anyway to cut a long story short!! When searching the fisheries website searching for information on studies done or ongoing all i can find is very old and mostly irrelevant information, so when i contacted the authority i brought this up with them and suggested that people (fisherman/women) would better understand why you make certain areas, limits, and sizes if they were able to access current relevant information on whats going on with the fishery, maybe some publicity in the local newspapers publishing the results, instead of just printing on all there paraphernalia "your license fees at work" as this gives no actual account of what they do Today i rang them again about a study on snapper and flathead they asked me to do, while discussing snapper i remarked on the ban in S.A. and after some general discussion on the subject he told me that a group of our guys are in Adelaide at the moment having discussions on how to manage the recovery, he also said it was a number of reasons that caused the issues and in summary a few bad spawning years coupled with overfishing is what lead to the problems that are faced at the moment, he told me that here in port phillip bay almost suffered the same issues a few years ago, but the interventions setup and monitoring of the stocks via radio receivers to track the breaders gave them the information needed to secure a sustainable fishery. After my discussion with the fisheries guy he thanked me for the work im doing to help them in their job and said hopefully i can pass some of the information on to other fisherman/women, being the person i am i wondered how could i best get the message out there? Anyway a couple of weeks ago i went to the "gone fishing" day and while there had a chat to some of the guys from the local fishing club, i had been thinking about joining one for some time and tonight i went along to their monthly meeting and joined, on the program for tonight was a discussion on how to target snapper, kings and tuna. This was a very informative night and this also got me thinking about whats been going on in the fishing sector for the last few years and the responce by people as to the affect it has/was going to have on them (both good and bad) "your license fees at work"? The comment by me that the information was not getting out, the comment by them saying that they hope i can help to get more people on board and information out?? Why don't i invite fisheries to come an speak at a meeting and give us the run down of what they are/have been doing with all the information gathered from us the fishers and their scientists? Rather than a night finding out how we can catch more/bigger fish why shouldn't we find out how we can help and how the information we could/are collecting for them is used to better maintain the fishery we love to relax in while exerting ourselves reeling in that fish of a lifetime? Could this be a way of getting the information out there to the people who it affects the most? Sure not all fishermen/women are in a fishing club but they do talk to other people at the ramp or cleaning table and pass on information when discussing things that are going on. I've decided that i will bring it up with both parties and get the ball rolling as i think it's better to know why things are done and when things are going south before they happen rather than after im guilty of complaining about changes they did back when the marine parks were marked out stopping us from fishing in some of the most productive areas, however now that i know why im happy they did it, instead of telling us we are doing it cause we are, they come tell us we need that area as it's were the unicorn seahorse breeds, then we can say well ok take it because i like eating them so let them breed lol I hope im not ranting too much i just think if we can get them to give us.. no keep us better informed then when things start going south it doesn't get as bad as it has now?
  28. Yeah hotmelt is something i don't have but i think it would be a handy thing to have
