Tarban again


Recommended Posts

Back again today for high tide.

The big bream in the creek just tease me.

It was a bit windy so I started with my beloved Sugapen.

Walked the creek and bay for a few near misses, then changed over to a gulp banana prawn.

Casting and walking back to the creek, I only entertained the toads.

Another change, this time jerk shad nuclear chicken.

A few casts, twitch twitch and ....Bang


I saw this old fellow hanging around. Bad picture but is this an estuary perch ?post-33162-0-30278200-1402143315_thumb.jpg

Bit hard to tell from that photo, but has the look of a small barra.

It did you know

It looked a bit sick, some scales missing and it's tail was split.

It was just moving slowly along the surfacepost-33162-0-57825000-1402213945_thumb.jpgpost-33162-0-87690100-1402213877_thumb.jpg

Could be another of those Barra the monks release Into the harbour. A bloke I spoke with at rozelle when I was having a flick said him and a mate got 3 the week before, (pics to prove it as well) they don't like the water down here.

Bad Karma.

This fish was lost, sad, sick and lonely.

He was suffering.

I read today fisheries have tried to stop the practice, it's not working.

The fish they are releasing grow up in excellent conditions in aquaculture farms not Sydney Harbour.

Yes they will be dispatched and end up on the table, but it will be quick,

This one faces an agonising death in alien surroundings.
