  1. Very nice catch. Did you examine gut contents at all? curious to know what they have been feeding on
  2. It would depend on the size of the snapper that are being caught. Need to remember snapper are pretty slow growing and if you are catching lots of 30cm snapper they would have existed before the snapper ban was in place. Havent got time to find the growth charts currently but from memory a 3-4 year old fish is only about 25cm.
  3. what ime of the day are you fishing. Better chance at dawn or dusk. Used to get heaps just fishing unweighted baits, pichards, prawn or carp chunks. you may struggle to cast unweighted with a 3000 size reel if you have heavy line. i use no more than 6 lb line for bream. A 2-4 kg rod would be better suited but if thats all you got then that is fine. Should be coming up to salmon trout season in the lake so you should get onto a few fish on lures when they are about
  4. Don't forget you an also catch kg's on soft plastics. have caught them on bloodworm wrigglers before but a worm or nipper plastic should work too. recently saw this vid by Luben Pfiefer catching kgs on ned rigs, looks fun
  5. Gar are easiest to fillet once gutted. If you keep your catch cold from when you catch them there is no reason that they cant stay in the fridge up to five days no problem. Obviously the fresher you eat them the better the flavour but you definitely wont get sick if you've treated them correctly and kept them cool. Particularly with mild fish like gar a few days in the fridge they'll still be great but salmon/tommies etc will get a bit stronger but still be fine. If i know i wont be eating within a day or two i will just gut and gill and do the filleting on the day they will be cooked. This wi
  6. not sure the exact plastic but they were paddle tail squidgies, black and gold or pilchard doing the damage (pretty similar to pics attached)
  7. 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
  8. 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$
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. caught a couple around the 50cm mark. They fought really hard. great fish to catch. That is an absolute monster Jack Kee
  13. 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
