Cooks River mixed bag


Recommended Posts

G'day Raiders, 

It has been a while, but with my chauffeur skills not required on a Sat morning, I headed out early last Saturday for a long awaited crack. 

So I get to spot #1 and bugger me...there are a whole stack of speedboats for a ski race piling up. Anyway, after battling for a park, I persisted for a quick session and headed off before they got started. During this session I managed a small baby snapper, smaller flathead :lol::lol:, whiting, puffer fish, small bream and 3 stripped fish (as per pics) which I have been told before are a Stripped Trumpeter? The larger of these (going about 35cm) pulled like a train and was great fun. 

Anyway, with the boats starting up, I got out of there and headed to my old faithful spot upriver. Apart from picking up some nice bream (as pictured) I got busted off a few times by something bigger. But, them's the brakes right. 

Anyway, it was a fun morning out, away from work and away from the wife and kids (ha!). I'll be back out there again tomorrow, for another crack. 

Well, that's it from me. Tight lines everyone, I hope you get some fishing in during the xmas and new years break. I hope Santa brings everyone a shiny new reel or their desired rod :)

Cheers and merry xmas,

I'd be very cautious about eating fish caught in the Cooks River



Way ahead of you Shakey. I only ever do catch n release anyway, but I am well aware of the Cooks' history and issues. No way I'd ever eat anything from there...unless I wanted time off work..lol!
