  • Bio
    I like fishing the river and estuary's.
    I enjoy giving advice and helping others catch fish as much as fishing itself.
    Fishing to me is about getting out and getting some fresh air, stretching the legs and stepping out of everyday life into a very rewarding past-time.

  2. Great stuff, I will take my Speedwell in there next week. cheers
  3. Better than nothing, the water looks pretty bad. The Coomera is trashed because of all the fat cats developing the area, It is smaller and cant take as much as the Brisbane river. Cheers
  4. See if you can find the jump in rates in NSW in the last 12 months, from what I heard it would be about 40%, no kidding. Can't wait till the sleaze ball pollies get a sniff of that tax money. cheers
  5. Yes thanks Exactly what I mean, these things destroy the system completely. Many decision makers these days would have no idea of the rivers potential. cheers
  6. Barramundi in Aboriginal language means "Big scaled river fish". Just thought I would add that since you can see their huge scales. cheers
  7. I been there a few times and I know the error of my ways. Go early morning, get a pair of waders of your keen as it is hard to get past the wood atm with the high water. Especially in summer Bass will go to deeper less bright waters during the high vis daylight. Cheers
  8. I doubt they would flourish if the rivers where not restocked. BTW. That is just a name, I not really a trout fisherman except for a few random ventures to if they were removed from Australian waters I wouldn't really notice. I must say it is an interesting point though but not really argument to fill the rivers with carp. cheers Not picking on you dan :laugh: Id say nearly half trout would be released as the per c&r theme.As for not flourishing if not stocked....well have seen quiet afew shows lately on people catching trout in farm streams.Can of worms I know but i am a aussie native lover and this trout crap doesnt wash with me just my 2c Yes I edited that bit :whistle: I still thin carp are really making a mess of it, it is ok for the big would if they could be be scientists to make decisions for now but in the future we will have to look after every inch of river in Australia. As per usual it will take time for them to see the error of their ways and they will start looking after the resources a healthy river system can provide. The people who have actually experienced a river system over run by carp are most likely far and few between and more than likely have nothing to do with the decision making process. @Roob's: Yes Roob's I never thought of that, you could be correct. cheers
  9. I doubt they would flourish if the rivers where not restocked. BTW. That is just a name, I not really a trout fisherman except for a few random ventures. If they were removed from Australian waters I wouldn't really notice. I must say it is an interesting point though but not really argument to fill the rivers with carp. But it is a good point, I would wonder what has been said about this in Fisheries. cheers
  10. It has been proven that the Australian natives if given the upper hand will dominate the ecosystem. I do not see how keeping carp alive will give the natives any advantage. Brian the species will never be regarded as local, same as the rabbit the rat and the cane toad. They are a kinda good fight but in reality is that a reason to stock our rivers with them at the expense of our highly edible and aesthetic natives. Mate you can keep your native carp, I grew up catching them and believe me you get sick of them very quickly, when that is all there is to catch. edit: 2kg carp?.... mate try 6-8kg carp that eats anything and everything. They do not belong they are a product of poor land and water management. cheers
  11. Never heard of cooked prawn on a jig head? Did you fish it like a bait or a plastic? Nice fish BTW, Cheers

    Sucked in

    Yes the man was a repeat offender (so the story says) working the Brisbane river, a fool just asking to be caught IMO. I agree sell the boat and put the money towards something useful. cheers
  13. Caught a couple of Grassys, no spangled Emps. So what is the difference?.. they look very similar. cheers
  14. You would have to be eligible for a rifle license. cheers
