Haha, well, I'll have to have a think about it. Geez I wish i had a copy of that.
That story will go down in the annals of history as one of the greats. Right up there with the Nowra Subway story from GregL.
Read this and burst into spontaneous laughter - remember them both. Still chuckling. Absolute classics. I assume they'd still be on the old AKFF site. Just got to get in there and hunt and copy.
The caravan park story by Gra is on this forum, just search 'front bum' in Frosty Mags.

Just as funny the second time around

Kayak fishing may be what brought people to the forum but once you are in, you are in. You don't need to be fishing from the kayak now to share the love of it, it was a great way to bring a bunch of like minded (or not) people together but it's a bit sad if people feel that can't chat if they haven't been fishing, some of the best threads have always been off topic.
So if you what to waffle on about front bums in caravan parks go for it.

Good to see familiar names popping up again.

Thanks for all the fish

Totally agree that this place is so much more than what it says on the tin. I'm going to make the effort to try and post more than I have here or on the maple syrup site just to keep it alive. Haven't even gotten the yak out of the car hole in like 5+ years as life gets in the way but still check this forum on a daily basis.

FB is suffering maybe the forums will have a surge and users will outnumber bots.

I dislike Facebook with a fairly intense passion... used to be on it but got sick and tired of all the peripheral crap from friends of friends and who really cares what someone else eats for breakfast...

I liked the old playground as it gave me the chance to talk to other folk about a specific interest area without worrying too much about all the other aspects of life that were not held in common. I failed to get fully involved here owing to some dramatic life changes and now that things are falling into place nicely I am ready to get involved again but is sad to see the dates of the last entries showing the real story about the current state of decline in forum activity.

cheers
John

I don't do much else other than work and be a taxi for the kids when the mrs can't do it. Kayak still sitting there collecting dust, dad's ute (my old one) still has the kayak carry rack stuck in the back of it, on the offchance I one day want to take the kayak out. It'll be a simple matter of just swapping utes for the day, getting out, swapping back again....but it's never happened!

Just thought I'd let you know I'm going to service my car tomorrow. Thought you'd be interested.

Nice zed
How did you catch them?

By law they need to be collected by hand and in season. The early summer runs are more impressive but they are allowed to do their thing w/o human take. The grunion run on full moon high tides and ride the shorey surge up the beach. They mate up and wriggle into a hole then ride the last water draining before the next surge. Grunion season is full of idiots running the beach getting thumped by shore pound in the dark.

I think we need video of this fish catching by hand.

Im sure theyre out there but we didnt take any.

The standard wanker getting thumped:

Spot a couple wriggly heads poking out if the sand. Run at them. They finish up and break for the cover of the gutter. You sprint toward the gutter to intercept and either grab one and turn around w your prey held high as the next shorey nails you or you miss and turn around walking slowly back up the beach as the next shorey nails you.

Best to follow the rhythm of the surges/sets and get 2 to even 3 as they poke up at the top of the surge.
