Southern Powertails

Post by aussiebasser » Thu Oct 22, 2009 6:56 pm

Hi Fellow Powertail chasers.

I'm a Southerner, and I just wanted to let you know the we are now flying the Powertail flag down here in South East Queenland. After picking up the term from a Darwinite I thought the mighty whiskered warriors should be adored down here as well.
I was Kayak fishing the Brisbane river recently and was disappointed when I thought I'd hooked a Mary River Cod. Imagine my relief when the monster that had found the snags swam out and I was rewarded by that agressive grunting of the mighty Powertail. My mate Fitzy was on hand to video the auspicious occaision however he lost the footage. Fortunately, here's some footage of a little fella in Lake Wivenhoe taken on 4lb line.
