  1. A MULLOWAY released on 2nd January, 2004 off Ardrossan on the east coast of Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, has recently been recaptured. After after 13 years, three months and one day at liberty the fish was caught again on 3rd April, 2017 by a charter operator fishing in 30m of water off Point Margaret, SA (West Coast of Yorke Peninsula). The mulloway was originally released by a GFC of South Australia member and was measured at 74cm and an estimated 3.5kg. Upon recapture was it was measured at 140cm and about 30-35kg. This recapture breaks the record for the longest time at liberty for a mulloway tagged under the program.

  4. AS the popularity of kayak fishing continues to grow, some interesting paddlecraft are hitting the water. Here MICK FLETORIDIS tests the new Aquayak Scout with a Torqeedo Ultralight electric motor. NORMALLY, heading off in a kayak without a paddle would be a bad idea. The thought struck me as I was driving to a nearby boat ramp to do this on-water review. Halfway there I realised the kayak tied to the roof racks hadn’t come with a paddle and I’d forgotten to grab one from home. The good news......

    Lively Lures Mohawk

    THE Mohawk is the latest edition to the already extensive Australian made Lively Lures range. I've been using the Mohawk for a few months now, mostly for wild river and impoundment bass in NSW. For a lure that’s only 60mm long, the Mohawk is quite chunky and has a fairly big profile when swimming. The deep diving bib and tough construction of the Mohawk has proved to be very effective on my trips upstream fishing deep, river stone and boulder lined North Coast pools.........

    Whether it's keeping fish chilled or your drinks icy cold, follow these tips and keep your cool. 1) No peeking!
