Darling Downs Golden Perch

There was something about that particular lure and its colour that really stirred up the fish. Straight after tying it on, I hooked three yellowbelly one after another. Simon also managed a couple of decent Murray cod at 60cm and 70cm. This just goes to show that no two river systems fish the same.

Whiting Fishing Fun on the Flats in a Dream Kayak

Stuart River kayaking adventure

Corey was fishing from the boat nearby and doing well also. The decision was made to take a few fish between us to cook up for dinner using Harmo’s secret herb and spice mix that Colonel Sanders would be proud of. As the sun set on another spectacular day, we headed back to camp, which took about 45 minutes of travel in …
