Thanks for the welcome folks, I seem to spend more time teaching kids how to fish than fishing but I still get the occasional good fish. I'll try and post some pics and get some heart rates up.

Very interested in learning some techniques from your area to see if they are transferable.

In the mean time here is a photo of a batch of lures made to target Murray Cod for a tagging program. Photos with fish attached to follow later in the year. painted lures web size.jpg

Forgive the eyes, as I was too far into a bottle of Bundy Rum to be doing any better.

Took a local state politician fishing with a mate a little while back, after we helped her catch the first ten Bass I had a bit of a cast myself. The photo is of a passable Golden Perch, roughly 20 odd inches long and around 4 lbs. Best I've heard of lately was around 14lbs, so not that fantastic but still fun on 3 kilo string around the snags. Golden Perch web size.jpg
