Nice fish

I have been told that people fish for years trying to catch that one big fish

I had a guy stay over here from hardy and gray the fishing store ,And was telling me all about it, And how people have little tents set up around the lakes Waiting for a strike and maybe waiting days on end

Some sit for days all day and all night.  Its ok if its warm and you have a few bevvies with you!  I prefer the beach though or the boat, the variety of fish is better!

Stinkers

 Just returned from SA and Vic. Did extended stays up the Murray River and caught many of the stinking thinks. Up to 600mm. The river is is in plague proportions with these mud suckers. And corn was used as bait most of the time.

I think most people would be surprised at the fight they put up Way back (yes I know it is a too much used cliché you could get some real ripper size carp from a place called butlers swamp aka lake Claremont now.
