Fine Tuning Mudeyes

by John Orchard

Much has been written about mudeye fishing, all of which works just fine.This article is about taking mudeye fishing that one step further.The theories that I am about put forward are based on nearly 20 years of working toward fine tuning the art of mudeye fishing in an effort to maximise results (and enjoyment) from each fishing trip.

Gazza's Big Day Out

Two weeks ago, myself and long time workmate, (Gary Garwood), took a voluntary redundancy package from Aurora, ..between us we had been employed there for over 60 years. Gary actually trained me as an apprentice linesman all those years ago. Before we left Aurora, we said," whilst we were unemployed"  we would try and get together for a fish as often as we could, as a way of staying in touch with each other.

 With the brown trout season now closed, the only real option that we had available to us, was  nearby Brushy Lagoon. So this morning at 8.30 am, we packed a BBQ lunch, met up at Andy's bakery in Westbury, had a quick coffee and snuck out with my little 12 ft tinny. Gary managed to land this monster and the look on his face when it came near the boat is a memory that will stay with me for years to come, if i missed it with the landing net i reckon I would have been a dead man!.
It's size,... bloody big!,.. at least 12 to 14 pounds I reckon. I had to wait for his hands to stop shaking so he could hold the fish and I could take these pictures, funny! He also backed that effort up with a three pound perch.
Well done Gazza, and thank you Inland Fisheries!!
Regards, Todd
