Old Couta Lure


huon pine, towed behind fishing boat attached to a 3 metre bamboo pole, with about 1-2 metres of line. Once hooked, the couta was flipped overhead through 180 degrees and hit the boat deck hard enough to unhook the fish. When enough were on the deck they were packed into a wooden box approx 900mm long, 400mm wide and 250mm deep.

Could also put a hook on the cig lighter, that would work too.
I was sking out off Stanley wharf one day and the bloody tow rope broke. The boat driver indicated he would be back in 5 minutes and shot off to get a new rope. I wasn't at all concerned bobbin around in the water until I turned and looked up at the wharf, They were catching axe handles (couta about 3 foot long), hand over fist like they do when there is a big school. Never been so scared in my whole life. I have been in the water diving with a few smaller great whites when diving but this was worse, I was ****ting my self. True to his word he waas back in a 5 minutes, I was in the boat before it stooped and haven't skied there since.
cheers

Blaze, you could have swam over to the "foreshore wharf" where the sometimes ferry berth is now, and got with the bobbers from the long drop loo. Ciggie lighter was for size perspective

Got a bit low on lures in the Kimberley once.
Beer can lures worked a treat on Spanish Macs and Queenies. Not sure if the beer brand was significant though.biggrin

OH Dearies all! You have got me soooo envious at your fishing skills. I am in tears now as to the money spent on pretty lures for no results. Like they say - the fancy pretty lures are really to catch the fisher people. From now on it is all line, hooks and a few swivels in my kit!! The rest I'll get from "Highway Hardware".
Cheers Ian
