Jouvie Swan Mulla

Caught my first Mullaway yesterday in the Swan near Garrett Rd. As you can see, just a little jouvie but was still a nice sight to see. Makes me think our waterways are getting back to reasonable health and fish stocks are OK. Caught on a piece of prawn while targetting bream.

Think fisheries released a heap last year, might be one of them. Would look great in my aquarium!

Probably not part of the restocking program by Recfishwest, I think they were all mid 20's at time of release. The tag is a little yellow thing, like a 10cm piece of spaghetti. If the photo works, this is one I caught about a month or so ago near Maylands, was about 40cm.

If you give them the tag number they'll send you a Baitrunner 4000 too

 Even better news if it's not part of the program! Love seeing young fish of sortafter species being caught, means we're in a position for years to come (providing they're returned to the water).
