I'd better start eating more of my catch  :blush: ... It would be devastating if we lost our indigenous species. Thanks for sharing.
Forgive me Father for I have spinned... It's been three weeks since my last cob session.

Excellent eating, soft white flesh so you need to jazz it up a little with herbs & spices but really good eating.

After seeing this thread, I started researching (read: google) and came across the invasive species list (Dept of Environmental Affairs 29 July 2016, National Environmental Management: Biodiversity Act)

Is it ethical or legal for dams (specifically public dams) to enforce catch and release of bass?
Are public dams considering discrete catchment systems?
