I Was watching the show this morning and they were fishing in the Estuary, and they were after a certain species..It was an introduced fish, now its become a pest so to speak, there is no bag limit, and they Dont want you to throw them back..
I cant remember the exact name, I "Think", Think they said Red tail perch, is this right, is this fish around, I may have the name wrong..??
Anyone that might know??

You wouldn't want to get tipped out.. :o.
Iv fished from a canoe when I was a teen, only me in there though, with a friend, she had her own too, it was in calm waters so that made it better..:)

I find the compare Steve to be one of the most annoying people on TV the show itself is sort of OK but he is a Nitwit (I think anyway) and his WA accent can be a tad agravating as well, just my thoughts of course

Love the show, love the energy of the crazy bugger too.

He is a great guy. Met him in Perth a couple of years ago at a mining expo.

I have to admit he is a bit of a doofus,but he is passionate,they catch heaps of fish and try to convey a lot of tips and knowledge throughout the show.
Its hard not to like a bloke who obviously loves his fishing as much as he does.

not saying he is not a good guy, don't know about that) but as a host he is a dimwit! (in my opinion)

WA accent WTF is that about ?????

15-03-2007, 10:29 AM
OK I will explain, all people from WA pronounce anything spelt "gear" as gee aarr and over he aarrr for over here

OH and I forgot the MOST annoying thing is wearing their sponsors hats, even in the night time segments, even sometimes backwards so as the name is in clear (clee arr) view.

I think I could safely say I'd choose them and the show over rex Hunt anyday, maaaaan he gets on my nerves the ol goat, I hate the way he patrinises people ..;D

15-03-2007, 02:16 PM
yes, he seemed to get much worse in the later shows, and his stupid laugh almost makes you want to strangle him

15-03-2007, 02:30 PM
Steve The doofus i can handle,but I find it almost painful to watch Rex.
Yes cheezy13,I also hate his condescending attitude.
His laugh does truly suck and i still grimace when i see him break the line with the hook down the fishes throat.
