  1. not sure the exact plastic but they were paddle tail squidgies, black and gold or pilchard doing the damage (pretty similar to pics attached)
  2. I fished the Coorong coupla weeks back and mullies were readily taking 3-4 inch plastics on a 1/4th jig head. could fish a lighter jig but that was all i had that suited the size of the plastic. Ended up with 9 in about 4 hrs ranging from 30-65 cm
  3. the shimano sonics at BCF are good. 7ft 2-4 kg, there is a soft plastic model and a bait model. both have good action and are light. I think they are about 70$
  4. Anywhere on the bottom of yorkes is potentially good. Stenhouse bay jetty would be a great place to start, you could camp at marion bay and explore the bottom end . Dont rule out salmon in summmer either, Have seen massive schools on yorke peninsula in January before. If no salmon then should be tommie, squid, mullet etc to keep you occupied.
  5. You might have foul hooked a ray if the plastic was on the bottom. If it took the plastic mid water I reckon it was just a good salmon. On the light stuff they can just steam off and not look back. I had one do that to me while bream fishing once in encounter lakes, salmon went on a 40m run (though i landed that fish around 3kg). You do get decent salmon on occasions in the port. How mucg line does the reel hold
  6. I imagine survival rates for release weights are quoted/suggested with inference to survival rates observed in studies where they release the captured fish back to depth in cages. There are a few studies that use this technique on snapper to assess post release survival rates from depths that may cause baratrauma.
  7. caught a couple around the 50cm mark. They fought really hard. great fish to catch. That is an absolute monster Jack Kee
  8. Fished in the kayak metro local yesterday, Got a nice feed of trouties. Water like glass and only saw about 4 boats. Seems like everyone else went somewhere. Never seen so few people for a long weekend
  9. good pick up Plecro' It is spawining season when the large mullys are targeted most on the west coast of SA so fair bet it may have something to do with this. It is possible that is bruising from the fight though, as they say the bigger you are the harder you fall and fish that size could cause some damage to themselves quite easily under their own weight, with line wrap or even the sinker banging against them, but the wounds look like they may be older than a few minutes so my bet is on spawning aggression or behaviours. https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/
  10. Dont know what the answer is, license with a test is really the only way to reach everyone....but then people will fish without a license so you still cant win. Bigger fines and more fisheries officers are required. Was fishing easter monday at the local which was unusually busy. There's myself fishing barbless hooks and putting anything back that's not at least a cm over the limit to be sure im doing the right thing.......... then there's Groups of people spread out who all know each other all keeping everything they caught. From a distance i knew they were doing the wrong thing but fro
  11. I fish the same lures and same areas a bit and havent had the problem so as mentioned you might just be unlucky, the bigger the school the more competition so the little fish are probably really competing for food and are more aggressive than usual. Perhaps try a plastic thats bigger or has a thicker body, like the squidgy prawn imitation, or a longer flick bait.
  12. Yeah both anaconda and bcf change their prices so often their point of sale staff and ticketing can’t keep up:( always pays to check
  13. PIRSA have been running a campaign on this for a while now https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/348155/2019_Asian_Paddle_crab_factsheet.pdf https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/alerts_news_events/news/ministerial_releases/keep_watch_for_asian_paddle_crab_and_report_it
