    Chris,

    Have a nice Christmas,

    The post can be good for discussions.

    However still disagree and firmly believe that anyone who wants to say their method or comp is better than others needs to gain more experience Australia wide.

    Fished most states of Australia and will be still learning till the day I die.

    Again the only requirement is that the fish is caught by legal means.

    Each to his own and no need to put down anyone who doesn't conform to the ideas of a few.

    Yes I am disabled and getting old and sometimes get cranky, but respect for others is the way I was bought up.

    Enjoy your fishing but respect what others do to reach their own personal goals.

    Merry Christmas

    Trev ...... those that know me & know my nature ....... will know that I'm not a disrespectful person ........ I might be opinionated though - thats me. THREADS LIKE THIS ARE RAISED TO PROMOTE THOUGHT ...... & OPINIONS !
    In this threads case ...... I couldn't be selective & ask those that I know...... It is a public forum & I was totally aware of the possible flack.
    there is not a case of begrudging a guy that picks up a 136 while trolling ...... good on em I say! ....... But its not my personal goal - I'm very happy casting my way along the PB chain 1 cm at a time THATS MY CHALLENGE!

    Anyhow ...... life is too good to let these things get in your way.

    Have a great Christmas & see you on the water in 09

    Re: IS IT TIME TO RETHINK THE METERY "Does trolling count?"

    I guess guys when its all said and done its whatever rocks your boat.Iv caught a couple barra,but a couple stand out.One salty on fly at mackay and one 111 at monduran. the one at monduran andy got at at age 11 casting at bens point and the salty was a 78cm turbo model on fly landbased at mackay. It seriously shouldnt be about what does it for other ppl just the special barra for you. In ten or twenty years when we are casting lures that swim by themselves that have video feeds all the talk of hollowbellies,squidgies,trolling casting will be forgotten.
    Go fishing(barra or otherwise) to wind down, wind up,troll,cast,whatever... doit for what makes you happy.. not to post who got the biggest,best...its a huge learning curve.....but still remember the bloke that comes for a once a year fish, throws out a viper(tongue in cheek guys so dont bite)anf gets a metre thirty fish will be just as stoked as us blokes that get a metrey in the sticks or any barra casting in the salt.Sometimes the fish just arent biting casting(bombers..thanks roo n kim ...) and a change of tactics are required.Even in the salt sometimes trolling is the answer(though losing 5 classics in 5 trolls didnt seem like it). it seriously it whatever rocks/floats your boat..im the first to admit these days id rather catch a fish garrr throwing softies(thzanks chris) than catch nothing so i guess it a matter of prioritizing your fishing wants and needs..oops im rambling...when is borumba???

    Chris,

    Those that know me also, realise that I always try to do the right thing, and will not sit back and let others have a go at those who aren't around or have enough confidence to defend themselves.

    Does trolling count yes, if a legal fish.

    Perhaps you should also pose the question should illegal (Read undersize) fish count???????

    Merry Christmas

    Well I never realised I was in the presence of the caped crusader " Truth Justice & the Trollers way" - Trev .. time to get off the high horse & stop trying to play the victimised poor soul (specially when there is no victimisation) - Just opinion ........ on merit
    You & anyone else can troll away & catch as many big barra as you like - its no skin off my nose - I'll think no more or less of anyone that does so

    On the question of undersized fish ...... why ask Each fish is returned anyway ..... be it undersized , legal or XOS - Ahhhh but thats another controversial topic in its own right

    Chris

    Now be truthful. I myself think that the more people trolling is a very good thing and I think highly of them. Means that there are less people dragging lures through the sticks where the tough barra sit.

    Work is flatout at the moment, I have the family coming tomorrow and need to drag the van down to Lennox for the wife and sisterin-law to stay in while I am away and as yet I have not even started to pack a splitring for Mondy. Dont worry though, I will be there, just not that well organised I am guessing
