More carnage from this arvo.. ... This one is around 95cm ..

Seems like such a waste of a good trophy baz. Imagine the potential thrills and excitement that all the anglers will miss out on. The the tales of the one that got away, the epic capture or just the sight of a fish this size swiping behind your lure would have created memories to last a lifetime for so many people..... and that's just for this ONE fish. The social media and resulting revenue from it must have some sort of value? ??

Hundreds if not thousands of them end ended up like this ( who actually knows ) all just because someone can't read a sounder then simply add a couple of meteres to the reading to deal with the current. Hang it up a bit higher if need be. Ensure that it's touching the bottom and anchored properly. Then we wouldn't have an issue.... It's 13m or more deep where it sits in the middle. or so I've been told. But surely its not rocket science. After all we had a net back in WW2 in the same area to stop Japanese torpedoes.

The dam level wasn't that far off being full when they made it as it only went down about a metre below the spillway during the end of the dry season. Plus they would have had the old one to go off too so WTF ??

So who did the measurements ? :sweat:
Was this a contractor ?
When are they fixing it?

I've been going to the dam wall since i was a kid and this is an ongoing issue ever since they put it in and it would be great to see it finally sorted out.

Painful to see.

Reckon Matt's right, they've built slides all over the world for fish to survive.

Never caught so many damaged fish in one season before. This one is a 60cm fish caught earlier this month.
