    Yep its a tilapia. They get knocked on the head & buried. Its one of the freshwater lakes on the GC and its full of the buggers. The daughter has only recently bought the place so I only fish it when on holidays. But the SIL fishes it all the time and catches heaps. Berleys up with bread.

    Its on your doorstep just about. Lake Hugh Munz. There are a few small parks that front onto it. Check some out with a slice of bread just on dark. You will soon see whether there are any fish about. It has a good variety too. Big eels, freshwater gar and some others I am yet to idenify but they look quite bassy. The lake can be fairly weedy so a float might help also. We just use bread as bait.

    Re: Passing on the Skill

    Can't answer that. I am in Sydney so its only when I get up for a weekend that I can fish it. The kids fish it a bit and have only caught tilapia - but that only mucking round with bread. When we berley I have seen 2 other species but none have been caught for posotive id. One of these trips I will try a popper in the evening & see what happens.

    Re: Passing on the Skill

    My first memory of fishing was with my grandad using a rod made of local shrub with a line tied to the end and a cork float with earthworms.
    Classic Tom Sawyer stuff catching fresh water fish I think they were perch.

    Cool stuff.
