Caught a long tail live baiting in QLD, that had something hanging out its butt. Found a bright red hook in its mouth with line attached. Didn't affect the Sushi at all.
Lost 2 fish in a small fresh water area and then after upgrading my outfit I landed a Jack with two spare hooks in its mouth.


how many is enough lures, rods and reels. Is there a magic number, considering you usually only catch 1 fish on a single lure on the one rod and reel your casting with.

Caught a small barra at shady camp with a 45mm drop bear squidgy lodged inside its mouth, didn't look like it had been there long.

Nope, but hooked 2 lures in the one drain session - went to chase some flicking opportunities in the wet a couple of years ago for not much luck until I put a treble through the eye ring of a lure! Score.

Few flicks later, felt some resistance - and pulled in another one, this time fouled in some old line that had broken off with the lure

That day, no fish, but finally got some tackle back!
