So there are Tillies in there?

I'll ask a question,

Can you get catch them landbased or by boat at Wyaralong Dam.

If landbased is there any spot / place in particular or take pot luck?

Anywhere Bondy

Rules state that you can only park in the designated areas and not stop on the road in etc. a lot do and it's not policed. Not endorsing it, just advising

beneel,

Good report.

I'll be going down there next week after my operation and see if I can get some of those tilapia.

What bait did you use, float or just small lead sinker, size 12 hook?

Cheers,

Bondy

Just use worms. They love them. So do the carp. Drop them straight to the bottom. I just have a small running sinker down to a swivel. Then about 1/2 a metre of leader.  I use 1/0 wide gap circle hooks for all bait fishing and they seem to work for both carp and tilapia. The tilapia seem to be in shallow bays(3-4m deep). Just make sure you keep your slack wound up as they can have the worm gone before you realise. Great fun.I use around 10 lb line and 15 lb leader as there are some big carp in there. Several have been caught over 10pound.
If you dont have a bite within 1/2 an hour try somewhere else. Good luck.
Beneel.

Beneel,

Thanks for that information, much appreciated.

Was all this landbased ?

How far up from the entrance would be a starting point?

Cheers

No in a kayak. Anywhere over the other side of the boat ramp. I think around the boat ramp area cops a fair hiding from people fishing for carp. Everytime i have been there it usually has quite a few people fishing off of the bank there.
If you are land based probably try in the bays that you cross over as you are driving towards the boat ramp. These are starting to get pretty popular too though.

Ok, does make sense, for sure, having a floating vessel of any description is the best way. Thanks for the tips. I'll see how I go during the week day.

Cheers

Symo,

Does make one wonder what's in there that's classified as dangerous and tracks closed.
