French street

Wed, 2012-10-24 21:45

French street Ashfield, 58cm and the guy next to me landed one at 62cm, about 15 years ago. I measured them both but .

I didn't get a photo so cant proove it. I also saw one a few days later that was even bigger, but the fisher cut its head off before i could measure it. I put the head on a cheap set of scales and it pulled down to 1.3kg. (just the head ).

When i fished the river back then i would get 2 to 3 big bream per year over 2kg ( 50 to 55cm ) plus lots off 1kg fish every other week. Not a lot of small fish were hooked all the time like it is now.

Also lots of cobbler , soapies and flathead were hooked and landed in the same areas. The river is alive with small bream now, but the big ones seem to be very hard to find , and probaly are long gone or very rare to see.

 When i fished for them back 10+ years ago we used to keep and eat them. Once i learned how old they were and how long  they took to grow, i stopped taking them and havent kept one in the last ten years.

Believe it or not i don't care, Bream over 60cm have been caught in the Swan. And who knows what the biggest ever was, as the the angler probally took its head off and cooked it up for his family for dinner.

Cheers Grant

cracker bream mate! Spam aye? might have to give it a go soon.

why would you use a 8/0? seems a tad small for that sized bream.... try a 12/0 Tuna circle. much better hook-up rate ;)

 My biggest went 7lb6 on the old scales. no idea of length as it was going back about 25 years down at canning bridge when 2kg models were a regular occurance. never kept one under the 1 kg as there was so many to choose from.

My boy's fish

Sun, 2012-10-28 23:12

Bought my boy a Shakespeare rod and reel combo from BCF for about 14 cents, Uncle Dan and me bought brand new Shimano reels with graphite rods to hit Guilford, prawns on suicide and long shank hooks, the boy caught a blue manna crab first cast, then a long necked tortoise, then got bored, cast his line out and played on the swings at the playground.  Uncle Dan and me got firk all, then after an hour on the swings, Bill started reeling in his line, got a bite, 46cm black bream.  He still remindes us about that fish, bless him (bastard son).
