fish r bitin in nrth qld, flying not so good.

Postby Pegs » Sat Jan 2 2010, 07:11

fishin is fantastic in Gulf of north QLd (Karumba/Burketown/Anywhere in the water)at the moment, had quite a bit of rain, not very chopper friendly right now, they get aweful bogged on mud flats when raining :!: :oops: :(

lots of ummmmm HUGE salmon (barra r outa season) and plenty of other rubbish you wouldn't eat that you can waste bait/lures and lots of hours sitting in hot boat to catch. :lol:

hope everyone had a great new yr,
happy flyin and fishin.
:wink:

Feed a man a fish and you feed him for a meal,
teach how to fish and you teach how to sit in a boat and drink beer all day! :lol:

mate take a closer look, that "rubbish" is a mongrel catfish, i couldn't even get the crabs to eat the mongrel things. :x

in fact i recon they where part of the reason that 6 crab pots didn't yield a single crab, they are already so chockers full of catfish that they won't even sacrafice themselves to my crabpots :cry:

:wink: have made exacutive decision, next time buy crabs before leaving town, then drop crabpots off at shed door on way past, that way more time for fishing and bears, and i will still be able to have a feed of crab over a beer in the arvo while cleaning fish.... :lol: :cool_dc:
