    Re: MONDURAN & AWOONGA in September

    Trev,

    If you can get a plastic banana from a decorating shop!! Surely thats legal Mabey one of the banana shaped apparatus that run on batteries....they would send some interesting vibrations thru the water..he he he

    Got to love a good plan...as strange as they sound!!

    Steve... Talking to Scotty....He thinks its legal...Whats Bait ? There is nothing in the ABT rule book that says you cant use Bananas...We may have to get a ruling from Mr Morgan...

The fish where fighting over it. .Now before you dismiss this think about Barra in the wild. They are a tropical fish Sootys eat the fruit that drop from the trees So why cant barra eat fruit that is washed down the streams So that got us thinking...What about just rubbing our lures with the fruit....Like you do with the S factor..Thats got to work.. .Results where mixed.. Somedays yes other days not even a touch ..:cry: .So how do you rig a Banana ? Where do you put the hooks ?. . Ever tried to throw a Banana that is attached to your rod.. ..So after months of trail and error...mostly error...a method has worked ...it works so well like 100% hookup rates What method ? Sorry guys with the ABT just around the corner...So forget those flaps, frogs,Stiffies even green bombers go and get some Bananas...
    yea whatever....nice try...

Come spring, I think they will be OK....its not a marketing ploy...or destraction away from other lure. I have just been useing them a bit and they work OK...another option. I dont mind telling anyone how I catch fish...even with ABT around the corner!! I must be BANANAS to do that!!
    Steve

    Trev, LOVE the banana lures! It would be awesome to see a rig or photo or are you guys just monkeying around!!! .....just one tincy wincy thing. Would they be classed as bait or lure in an ABT situation???? Food for thought...pardon the pun!
    A bit like the old GULP debate ( bait or plastic)
    I asked Trev if he used them off the bank rather than Jinxing the boat ....... Then the bell rang ....... Its not Trevs boat!

    Mate ...... These Gladstone boys can spread it on pretty thick!

    Geez, I just caught up on all the goss on this thread, and as usual, there is a lot of........

    I am already feeling sorry for the barra in September down south.

    I mean, those poor fish..listening to the IBD anthem, having flaps, bombers, frogs and bananas thrown at them on autocasters near the mango tree would drive anyone to the point of jumping on the end of someones line hoping they were part of the catch, fillet and release crew!!!! haha

    I am actually really envious of you guys getting to catch up, so I will give a report to stir you up a little more after the weekend, especially if the weekend continues like it has started....114...need I say more

    Cheers
    Matt

    NAGG,

    You know how it is mate... Abseiling, White Water Rafting, Rockclimbing, Sea Kayaking during the week (TAFE call it 'study' apparently?) and then on the weekends I even get to go Barra fishing? What kind of life is this?!??!

    Went out on the Dam last night and hit up a solid 96cm fish on Tango Dancer... full moon and glassed out water, strike was unreal. Matt is doing pretty well of late... geez I wonder where his been fishing The Bonies have been doing alright for me too... last weekend I got a few rats from the Bank with em'.

    Talk soon fella.

    Cheers

    Theo
    TT
