Maroon Dam - Catches other than Bass
« on: December 31, 2017, 09:04:28 AM »
I hear of big Golden/Silver perch taken in the dam on occasion. Also of rarer catches of big Cod (Mary/Murray ?) taken also.   Has anyone got photos of other target species to share of these.

I saw that someone caught a Tilapia at Maroon on F%$Book. I don't believe much that is written on there, hope it's not true. Do we have any chance of stopping those things? Are people letting them go deliberately?

My son caught a nice Silver in the weeds near Lakefire a few years ago. Sad we can't go there anymore. Great location, interesting management style, now owned by some property investmeny mob

Found a big dead tilapia floating in the main basin near the boat ramp on Friday morning. Caught a small tilapia on a spinnerbait there last March, so they are definitely in this dam...

I wondered what had happened to Lakefire. Haven’t seen campers there for ages and all i’ve heard lately was bad reviews following change in management.

Sad to hear but i’m not surprised. They really are hardy and tough little fish with an impressive bag of tricks to survive anywhere.   There’s no stopping them other than some future form of biological control.
