  1. Wes, I didn't mean it required a single large donation from an individual, but a cumulative total. Andrew and Baden have already pushed the total close. Schultzy.

For every $100 I'll submit an article with Mo photos to a fishing mag. Feral has given a great start. Dig deep guys and gals, It all goes to very worthwhile causes. Namely Beyond Blue and the Prostate Cancer Foundation. So far this month, Aussie Mo Bros combined have raised $12,215,319. A fantastic effort!
  3. Latest Movember mug shot. What do you reckon Kriso?
  4. Henry, Trade the car on one of these and you'll have a broom under your nose in no time.
  5. Billy Bob Thornton is very cool. Loved him in Bad Santa! :silly:
  6. Movember 8th and still growing. Going for the Chopper look but am not keen on trimming my ears though!
  7. Thanks for the donation Andrew. You are a champion!
  8. Most of you will unfortunately, during your lives have a male member of your family suffer from prostate cancer. Although this cancer is very common, it does not figure prominently in the media when compared to other cancers. Here are some stats from the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. Each year in Australia, close to 3,300 men die of prostate cancer - equal to the number of women who die from breast cancer annually. Around 20,000 new cases are diagnosed in Australia every year. Each day about 32 men learn news that they have prostate cancer - tragically one man every three hours will lose his battle against this insidious disease. One in 9 men in Australia will develop prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in Australian men and is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in men. As many men die from prostate cancer as women die from breast cancer but... a national survey by PCFA in 2002 showed that while 78% of women felt well informed about breast cancer – only 52% of men felt informed about prostate cancer. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My sons and I decided to do our little bit towards helping put prostate cancer into the spotlight. We have formed a team and will be growing moustaches for the Movember drive this year. Movember aims to raise the public awareness of two of the most significant but least understood men's health issues: prostate cancer and depression. Along with that aim, the Movember movement raises funds that go to the The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue – the national depression initiative.

    my 1st cod!

    Fantastic effort Mate! The first is the hardest, they'll be coming thick and fast now!
  10. NO, but I thought perhaps I'd missed the ticker tape parade while I was down south.
  11. Jimbob, Have you caught a cod yet?

    Don't worry about it. Sleep is highly over-rated. I tried it once, didn't like it! Average for me is 3 hours per night. Many, many years doing shift work taught the body to keep going while the mind is not functioning too well. Like I keep telling the missus, Life is too damn short to spend sleeping. Plenty of time for that when we are dead.

T'was a Trion CA461 4kg rod, an old Pflueger Trion LP reel running 8lb Platypus Super Braid and 10kg Platypus Mono leader. The heavier leader was the only change I made to the rig for the cod trip.
  14. ellicat wrote: Not enough is known about the behaviour of Murray cod to give a definite answer. I've not seen more than one big fish per pool in the shallow rivers of the border ranges. In deeper waters though, (further south) we've even scored two large fish from opposite ends of the same red gum snag. It may depend on the carrying capacity of the water (ie food & shelter) rather than the territorial nature of the fish themselves. In the near future it is hoped that fisheries scientists will receive funding to do some radio telemetry work on Murray cod in northern NSW, just as was done with the eastern cod a few years ago. Fish of this size are very few and far between in the shallow border rivers. Even the DPI electrofish boat only gets one big one each time they survey the river.
