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 ‘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

Robyn and Rob’s Marlo Fishing Adventure

Robyn and Rob from Canberra joined us on a fishing tour yesterday morning in ideal conditions with no wind and balmy temperatures. We spent time exploring the estuary and rivers in search of fish. On one section of the river we were lucky enough to see an Azure Kingfisher, bobbing its head and waiting for small fish to pass under its perch just above the water.
After losing a monster fish which decided to charge under the boat just before Rob got it to the surface, we started having some better luck landing a couple of Bream and a good size Mullet.

A great bag of fish – Dave and Ant

Yesterday Dave and Ant joined Marlo Fishing Tours for a great morning on the water, catching plenty of fish and learning a few tips and tricks. The conditions were ideal, with no wind and fog quickly clearing to to reveal sunny skies. The fishing was slow at first which provided a good opportunity to learn some new skills and practice. Pretty soon the fish came on the bite and we had Trevally, Mullet, Perch and Bream jumping around in the boat. It was a memorable session and Dave and his son Ant were both stoked!
