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.

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

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
