    OnkaStomper 12

    OnkaStompa 2017 was off to an early start yesterday as it always is. A total of around 238 entrants and approximately 298 in attendance. It was a hot day but people still came out and enjoyed a family day of fishing and fun. The total raised throughout the year and announced on the day was $24,760 with that number to be topped up a little when every last cent was counted. Well the grand total ended up being an astounding $25,181.60. The official results... Champion - Brett Haslett Bream 44.5cm and Mens Title Women - Lisa Solly Bream 28cm Junior - Christina Fontanot 39.5cm Mulloway - Caleb Maunder 61.5cm Other Fish Senior - Peter Hayesman Mullet 35cm Other Fish Junior - Beatrice Nash Mullet 24.5cm The BBQ although a bit quiet compared to other years went well with the Strike Hook crew at the helm. Just look at this bunch of legends! We have Kidney Slapper, Myself, Southie the Banger, Doobie and The Fishing Guru who was an official on the day. A huge thank you to the guys for helping out with the BBQ and continuing the Strike Hook BBQ tradition. Nigel another legend who has helped at the Bunnings BBQs couldn't make it but still managed to drop in and drop off a very well received frozen drink for us. While in the BBQ area most of the time, I tried to get out and take a few pics of what else was going on during the day. A few of natures freakiest creatures made an appearance and one of the locals decided it was too boring and just slept all day. It was great to be part of and so good to put the feet up afterwards.

    Onk Habitat Group Taking Strides

    What an exciting time , the OzFish Onk Habitat group have been making great headway in the restoration of habitat in the Onkaparinga river . We have finished stage one which was to deploy Limestone blocks into the Onk to place some substrate for small critters to attach to and hide around . These living critters such as oysters , barnacles and small crustaceans will in turn encourage bigger critters to congregate in the area . The placement of these blocks also should help the tides that flow over them to scour more of the sediment from the bottom of the river in an aid to make a deeper hole in the area for even bigger critters to hide and congregate . As you can see in the scans the placement of the blocks are near a natural limestone outcropping for them to compliment and as there was 2 deployments , the first deployment has already encouraged some sediment displacement right after the outcropping . A big and massive thanks to all the volunteers that have been taking time out from there lives to come to meetings and the organising make this achievement . We have some more projects in the pipeline and if you care to be a volunteer , we are always grateful for more helping hands .

    5:40 am Sheffield, moon setting..

    Took this at 5:40 am this morning just before the moon set, grabbed the little fishing camera.. didn't have time to get the good camera out. The bigger & better camera would have taken a better photo, frosty night & morning forecast so hopefully I can be ready for tomorrow morning when it sets.. cheers Adrian

    Biggest Mully...

    Hi fellas. Here's a pic of my best metro mully caught just b4 I sold my cuddy cab a little while back. Over the 50lb mark. These fish don't come easy but magic can happen for those who persist. I just hope my new boat is lucky also. Cheers

    Goolwa Cockles

    Hi all, Went down to Goolwa on Sunday to collect some cockles for bait now that the season has reopened. The hot weather and light winds made it a perfect day for frolicking among the crashing waves. What was surprising was the average size of the cockles we were gathering, being well over 3.5 cm across (legal minimum size). Got enough to last a little while but well under our quota. Didn't take long because finding legal ones was so easy which hasn't been the case over the last few years. They're now packed and stored in the freezer ready for summer sessions. Thought I'd do it early in the season before PIRSA shuts it down yet again. We don't eat them anyway & I don't think fish are to worried so I don't see why bait collecting is stopped even if there is microbe contamination detected. Let's face you can get seriously ill from not cooking your food properly & bureaucrats don't monitor the contents of our fridge, anyway that's another story now we're all living in this post common sense world, nanny state, economic dictatorship! So those of you who like foraging for your own bait Goolwa beach seems to be providing good cockles this year. Bear in mind please just take what you think you're going to realistically use so there's plenty for all and plenty left over for nature to replenish itself. Cheers

    As a part b'day present from my fiancé and a present to myself I went out and got a new toy on the weekend, it's a thing of beauty so I had to share 13 Fishing Envy Black 7'1" with 2500 Stradic Ci4+ running 8lb Daiwa TD Sensor braid. It's a pity I'm working this Sunday or I'd be trying it out down at Onkastompa!

    Colour loss with depth of water

    I just saw this on Facebook and found a version I could post on here. I thought it may be a handy reference for those that like colourful, shiny lures. Now to decide what fish actually see these colours the same way we do. I believe UV plays a huge roll.

    Odd find at Largs beach

    Hi Team. Came across this critter at Largs this morning while walking our dogs. I thought it was a very lost Morton Bay Bug! Apparently it is a Balmain Bug (Ibacus peronii). Never seen one before. Common? The dogs were not happy we let it go! Cheers, Greg.

    What fish is this?

    An ugly fish? Unusual, but looks like a cousin to a stone fish. Bet it tasted great after being crumbed and shallow fried?

    Yesterday while heading up to Liena (Mersey River) for a spin session I came across a fresh water Lobster in the middle of the road. It had climbed up a steep bank so it could reach the on the other side of the road. This was because the poor thing couldn't reach a concrete pipe that ran under the road that the creek water flowed through.. It is now in the creek that it was trying to reach.. I was a little worried it may have been run over by a quarry truck that wasn't all that far behind me when I spotted it, lucky for it the truck missed it.. Then today as I was heading back to the car I spotted a Platypus next to the river bank so took a photo of that too.. here's a couple of pic's of some of Tasmania's wild life.. cheers Adrian Fresh water lobster, a protected species that comes with a $10,000 fine for each one that is found in a persons possession.. And here we have the little Tasmanian Platypus that is quite common in most rivers around the state.. always nice to see them in the rivers..

    Cheap Snook Lures

    Storm Smash Shad Best snook lure I have used. I have run a double clutch side by side and they usually draw more strikes. They are cheap if you shop around overseas. I bought a heap from the US a few years ago when the dollar was high and got them for about $6 AUS. Currently going for $5 US on various US sites. They usually go on sale down to $4 US every now and then. Shipping costs a bit though.

    Cheap Snook Lures

    soft plastics.. and pretty much any hard body.. Green/silver/blue/red+white , when on they bite they are not really fussy.. and metal salmon lures are fine too.

    Gee, and what have you done except whine and criticize? We have done far more submissions and media releases than the peak body. With a weekly reach of 70,000, it's not a bad result for those working as volunteers. Yes, the website has been hacked, on purpose by the way and this is being addressed, but we have many portals for discussion. Right now, there is no doubt that if SAFA and RecFish Central had not pushed issues hard, nothing would be on the table towards the election. We didn't see anybody else present to the Natural Resources committee ? Slanging off at those working their guts out to make a difference ? Good on you !

    Beat me to it Doobs! @AuusieDave I'm not sure I've seen anyone fishing in a yak as it's pretty much that chockers you would get hit by flying sinkers and plastics if you were in the river. Here you can watch a small video that you may have seen on TV recently on SA Weekender featuring Mark Mills talking about the OnkaStompa. More info about the Onkastompa can be found at the website www.onkastompafishingcomp.com and at the OnkaStompa Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/OnkaStompaFishingComp A few of us from Strike Hook will be running the BBQ so come and say G'day Anyone who might be able to help lend a hand at the BBQ on the weekend let me know as we can always use another set of hands.

    Black squid jigs working well..

    Try putting on 2 x jags on each line you are using. This can quickly determine what is working on the day. If they are on then double header squid is not out of the question. I love it when this happens. Quick early morning squid session, then move onto other species & hopefully get a reasonable mixed bag.

    Tasmanian Freshwater Crayfish are the worlds biggest, growing above 5kgs. Might put one in Softy's swag when he is not looking. Adrian, you might want to get waders with steel caps....

    Hi Del, Pretty sure Cray's are protected in Sa. Without giving to much away I know of 2 spots within 30km of Murray Bridge that still have Cray's. Both spot's are not where many people would target

    Cheap Snook Lures

    Are you planning on trolling behind the yak? Try any minnow profile shallow diving HBs around the 70-90mm mark, especially those that may look like a gar- shiny silver/blues/greens etc. Im not specifically familiar with them but some of the Savage Gear ones look ok, around $12 too. Snook are schooling, so once you get a few hits in the same place it may be worth while to go more 'hands on' and switch over to SPs. Zman's are suitably tough for snook attacks, dont try to use Gulps!! Something like 3.75 in Zman Streakz, 85-110mm Flickbaits. As mentioned, metals can be good too and cheap!

    Top Shot mono

    It's the leader mono (50m spools). The "plus" version is a bit "stiffer" especially above 24kg but still ties perfect knots. Still better than any fluro Iv'e used and cheaper.

    Top Shot mono

    We have used Jinkai for years in various strains and love it. Supple as and ties great knots. I tie 15kg braid to 20kg Jinkai mono with an improved albright without doubling the braid and have never had an issue. I run up to 4 rod lengths of mono and the memory is acceptable. Cheers, Greg.

    Lads, for something a bit different I made stuffed tubes using a bruschetta mix and the tentacles. Bruschetta mix: - Punnet of grape tomatoes halved lengthways, - Half a red onion chopped, - Firm unmarinaded danish feta cubed or crumbled, - Fresh basil leaves, roughly torn; - 1 clove garlic, minced or finely chopped; - Tentacles from squid, fried and chopped, - Sliced, pitted kalamata olives (optional). Mix all that together, bung it in the tubes, shut the ends with toothpicks, and grill them on the BBQ. Drizzle w balsamic cream. Turned out a treat for a recipe I made up on the fly!
