We caught all those with rod & reel. Actually I'm not sure if it's legal to use a set line there and I know we can't use one here. In other parts of the country I understand it's no problem though. I remember trying to carry/drag them from the river to the truck about 200 yards through the dark that night. That part wasn't near as fun as catching them grin


We used to set lines on the Baron river out at Collarenebri where I spent a good part of my youth after Yellowbelly (Golden perch), there was a little old lady down the road who regularly set a couple of lines and one day she had one on that was far too big for her to handle, her two sons were shearers and happened to be home at the time, they went out to help her get it in. They later weighed it in at the butchers at 106 lbs.

Sure is, from what I've heard the big ones don't taste anywhere as good as a juvenile fish.

Yes they are white meated.
There is currently a push to remove all of the introduced European carp from our dams Rivers and freash waterways. They have bred to massive proportions and here it is illegal to throw one back in if you catch one, by law they must be killed.

They are endangering our native species.

We are also overrun with carp. It's not illegal to throw one back, but no one ever does. At least we don't have any of those jumping ones out here that go crazy when a boat passes by.
