  1. Big crawlers or big scrubworms. And if you keep getting small pickers you need to move location. Little fish avoid big fish coz they get eaten.[emoji6] Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

  3. Otherwise use light flouro 8lb or less so if the stinger gets snagged it will busy off easy and you will keep your lure. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  4. Gave up using HBs in West Lakes with treble hooks and changed over to single hooks and occasionally a stinger hook tied on. You won't catch as many fish but you will catch better fish. If the lure doesn't pin them the stinger often does. Attach the stinger with 3cm of red wool coz it looks like a blood trail behind the lure. Makes salmon go nuts.

  5. Amazing things we get to see and enjoy while fishing. And catching a good fish is just the icing on the cake. Watching them swim away free is even better. My photo is the Warren Reservoir at the end of shift. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah I still believe that both saltwater southern black bream and freshwater silver perch are both equal in the power to weight ratio when it comes to the fight. And silver perch is one of the most gorgeous looking fish you can catch in the Murray or other places you might find them. Anybody else got a deep cut from the gill rakers when caught unawares? Handle with care.[emoji6][emoji6][emoji6] Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  7. Hey that thing is a horse. My biggest is nothing like that. But I do agree they fight like saltwater bream. Never caught a silver on lure yet. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  8. 400 fish in a season is a very reasonable catch. 1000 is but a wish for trout hunters here in SA. Keep up living the dream down there mate. Coz you are sure keeping me motivated to keep trying myself. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  9. Some amazing and sensational country you are fishing mate and some great fish you are catching. Hope you are keeping warm this winter down there is Tassie coz it sure is frosty here in SA.
  10. Great footage mate. Wish we had the rivers like you have in Tassie to explore here in SA. We have a few if you know where to find them but having said that I still like targeting redfin so they are the waters I fish most. Sometimes it is just great being out in beautiful countryside and fishing. Love your work mate. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  11. Just remember to reel in fast when the wave is breaking so the line doesn't foul up the hook at the back. Wish I had my Granddads rod now but I still have an Alvey reel matched up with a Wilson 10ft one piece rod that lives in my dining room. But these days I use Spanyid Raiders or big blades coz they cast accurately right next the salmon schools and don't spook the fish. Old metal lures are the ducks nuts coz they cast a mile and never say die but they also have some bad habits and don't copy the action of a wounded baitfish. Big blades are also good but the trebles are prone to gathering weed at times like the Spanyids. The old lures were more weed proof but swam too straight. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  12. And they would cast out into a wave and retrieve it with the motion of the ocean. And even though I don't eat my catch nowadays they made me eat the fish we caught. Terrible childhood I had.[emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] Some of my earliest memories involve those lures. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  13. My Granddad used these on Goolwa beach when I was a wee lad. Salmon and mulloway in the suds. Big split cane beach rod which to me as a little kid was huge and heavy. And an Alvey reel.[emoji6][emoji6] Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  14. The Government allowed almost total depletion of Murray Cod in SA sections of the river over 50 years ago. They have only just started restocking compared to other states who have been doing it for over 30 years. My thinking is that snapper stocks are still at risk and when these muppets in charge wake up and realize that without restocking and total snapper bans for at least 5-7years the snapper fisheries will be no longer sustainable. Just like Murray Cod. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  15. I am struggling to keep supporting my local tackle shop at Spot On in Salisbury coz Steve has always supplied what I need. And he is now a good mate. My other local was St Kilda Tackle And Tucker and I cannot speak more highly of Cookie and Robyn and the crew. BCF and Anaconda are only good when you are a member and get 50 per cent off things like swags. Problem is after you buy something they have a 3 day sale every 3 days and bombard you with emails. And most of the time they have no friggen idea what you need. Support your local while you still can. I am worried they won't be around for much longer. And they will always try to give you a good price. And Ray and Anne's have never let me down if I am in the area and need something. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
