Cobbler ban

Sat, 2009-05-16 13:37

Hey Fishyink,

A heads up. If you were in the Swan River and got these just be aware that there is currently a 10 year ban on fishing for cobbler in the Swan.

Three days without it and I get a little jumpy


The best reason for doing what's right today is tomorrow.

We don't see many cobbler reports on here (or elsewhere for that matter) but after seeing what soupster just wrote, that's probably why!

I did see a nice cobbler this morning at Mandurah Quays, leisurely swimming past as I was flicking bibbed minnows for tailor/salmon trout...which never showed upEmbarassed

Best fish

you can eat in my opinion - when i was a kid my mum brought home Cobbler and chips from the Norwood fish supply in Lord St Highgate - and we lived up in the Darling Ranges so it was a bit steam cooked but cooked by Johnny the Greek it was still great.

I used to get them in a  fish trap in the river when I was a kid, in a kayak.
