Elizabeth Valley Road culvert

Post by NinjaFish » Thu Jan 31, 2019 1:22 pm

Went for a bit of a look see this morning after this mornings rain and for a few LB flicks.

A bit early here just yet I reckon, but they do show up. I was there last year when a Sheila landed a 60cm model - It was her 3rd in 2 days!

For the serious culvert fishos, check this link out;

There was a 10ft punt there chained up this morning..no motor. Methinks it was being used for heading downstream n doing some netting. Was also an ice-bag full of sand, no doubt used for weighing down an active net. I'm gunna say if that's the case, the boat might and up with a few "leaks."

Captain, last year there was a croc trap in there, pretty much near the road. Maybe it's the rangers tinny to check it down stream a bit??

Don't know if the link will work but someone has admitted to owning the boat saying that their motor has been stolen...

Oh well..unfortunate..but a rookie mistake.. If you have a small motor, on a small tinnie, on the side of the road, in a public space, in a remote area, dont expect it to be there for long... If it was my tinnie, I would have removed the motor, and taken it home, and brought it back to attach when ready to use it next..

Does anyone know how far the water is from the top of the wall?

Zoom in, you can see a little pipe flowing about 30cm from the top
