Snakes on the water

Last Friday was lining up to be a hot day, but it was an awesome morning to be on the water around Marlo. Kathy, Greg and their grandkids Chaz and Tyler explored the Snowy and Brodribb Rivers. We watched as a Tiger snake swam across the Brodribb River. Not long after, Chaz landed a beautiful Bream and cracker Perch.

Last fish for 2017

A great New Years Eve with Steve and Coxy. Finished with some good Bream smashing bait in shallow water. Watched a snake hunting for food along the bank and returned to the ramp at Marlo as a bunch of Stand Up Paddle Boarders with SUP Marlo paddled towards the entrance. Coxy even managed to catch a fish smaller than his hook

All fish were released to catch again another day.

Sunrise Kayak Fishing

A beautiful morning kayak fishing with Lesley and Russell. Russ caught his first ever fish on a lure – a nice Bream on a soft plastic (and released). Lesley persisted with a bent minnow surface lure, with some nice ‘follows’ and one Estuary Perch hookup. Unfortunately the EP got off before we got it into the kayak. Definitely worth the early start. Magic spot. Russ managed to hang on to the trophy … until next time

Forgot the G&T’s

Had a great day out yesterday with Jenny and Suzanne from England. The weather was perfect and the fish were biting. They scored some nice Bream around Lake Corringle and the Brodribb River as well as seeing plenty of birdlife … the only thing missing was the G & T’s … next time
Once they had caught enough fish for dinner the rest were released to fight another day

The competition hots up!

Well the trophy changed hands yesterday with Russell taking the honours in both the Bream category and the Mullet category. A beautiful morning out on the water at Marlo.

Lesley has a chance at taking the title back tomorrow morning with some kayak fishing near Marlo … hoping for some big Bream and maybe even a Perch

The Marlo Fishing Challenge

Lesley and Russell enjoyed a speccy morning on the Brodribb River yesterday. The twins like a bit of competition, so they battled for an impressive trophy I assembled, to see who could catch the biggest fish. After a slow start we finally found the fish and Russell soon had a couple of nice ones on the board. With time running out for Lesley, Russell started celebrating …. but he went too early …. as Lesley hooked a cracker! The measuring was tense, as Lesley topped Russell’s biggest by half a centimetre!
This was Russell and Lesley’s third trip with Marlo Fishing Tours and they’re already planning their next one. Can’t wait for next time guys. 🙂

Sunday morning sesh

Had a great morning out on the water last Sunday with Ruffy. Conditions were perfect as kingfishers bombed the water next to us and 5 eagles soared above. We caught some nice Bream and a couple of smaller ones, including a Perch.

The ‘Perch Search’

Brad Young invited me out on his boat around Marlo Last week (Fri-Sat) with young Harry to take part in the ‘Perch Search’. The aim is to catch local Estuary Perch as breeding stock for Fisheries Victoria’s East Gippsland stocking program. Youngy managed to catch a couple of ripper Bream before we landed a few Perch. Harry starred on Saturday with some nice Bream and Perch. My highlight was a 1.88kg Salmon on 4lb gear! Great fun … thanks to Youngy and Harry for a couple of fun sessions.

Nice Luderick and a great morning out

A great morning out near Marlo today. Sunshine, no wind and plenty of fish. Here’s dad with a couple of nice Luderick (biggest was 41cm, 0.98kg). Also scored some mullet and more Luderick. We were watching an Azure Kingfisher dive-bomb his prey when the first rod went crazy! The weather is finally starting to warm up and Spring is not too far away
