South coast marlin fishing as good as it gets
Marlin mayhem continues to unfold
off the south coast as warm currents
create tropic-like conditions for
Cobalt-blue water nudging the
25-degree mark has made its way to
the far south coast, bringing with it
large numbers of striped marlin as well
as a few blacks.
On good days, boats fishing out of
Narooma, Bermagui and Eden are
raising between six and 10 fish a trip.
In one of the best sessions, one crew
tagged 17 fish while another brought
13 to the boat -- that s about as good as
south coast marlin fishing gets.
The warm water is also tailor made
for dolphin fish. They re not around in
massive numbers but the ones being
taken are solid fish and are superb
eating. Look for dollies around
floating driftwood, fish traps, marker
buoys and other surface debris.
Surface action in the south coast
estuaries is hotting up. Whiting are
hitting poppers and surface walkers at
Durras, Tuross, Merimbula and
Pambula. There are decent flathead
and bream on soft plastics at Tuross
and Moruya on the run-out tide.
Canberra s urban lakes continue to
produce a steady stream of small cod
and golden perch.
Dumb act of the week goes to the
bloke who published a photo on social
media of a bucket of live redfin he was
planning to transport from one of the
city s lakes to a private dam.
Behaviour like this is more than just
foolhardy -- it s against the law! It s
illegal to transport live noxious species
such as carp and redfin anywhere in
the ACT and NSW.
These fish have done enough
damage to local waterways as it is; the
last thing we need is someone
assisting their spread even further.
If you've taken a photo of a
whopping big fish you've just caught
send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include your name, where you caught
the fish, its weight, size and type.

Rally crews to tear up the tarmac
Tuggeranong s Stuart Collison is
gearing up for the 2015 Australian
Tarmac Rally Championship.
The auto electrician has signed
up for his second full season, a four-
event series which gets under way
in Victoria this week.
Collison said he would be racing
in all four events in the
championship this year against his
business partner Mick Patton.
"You have a lot of fun because
the events are so well organised but
casual and friendly, Collison said.
"You also feel very safe.
"I ve done a lot of tarmac and
gravel rallying over the years but
the roads we get to drive are some
of the best driving roads in
He got hooked on the sport with
Patton back in 2009.
After a visit to the World Rally
Championship they began racing in
the Targa Tasmania -- Patton driving
and Collison co-driving.
The duo would go on to come
second in the Australian Rally
Championship. Collison now drives
his own car with Jason
Burgemeister as his co-driver.
Collison said he liked competing
in the championship and described
his race colleagues as like a family.
Last year they had a top 10 finish
and he hopes for another this year.
"It is a very competitive field,
Collison said. He estimated there
were about 70 other cars competing.
Over the years there had been
some dramatic improvement to
driver safety. While quick responses
to incidents also put the drivers
minds at ease. In one race they
rolled their car and within two
minutes safety crews were on the
scene to help them.
The introduction of new GPS
technology for competitors has
improved safety with competitors
now able to see other cars on the
road. The Mt Baw Baw Sprint kicks
off the action over the weekend of
