caught on an 8/0 circle and a full prawn while critter hunting and yes it was released to grow bigger


While there is no doubt that that is the most magnificent toady I have ever seen (nearly a foot long!), and being caught on an 8/0 is a pretty amazing feat, I cant seem to find toadies in the DPI guide.

I thought to be eligible for the comp fish had to appear in the guide and be legal size? or am I just being a bit thicker than usual.....

Quite possible that I've missed it, perhaps someone else could have a look for it??

I can't find it in the DPI guide either.
I did say that if you are unsure if a fish is eligible to be entered in the comp, post it up and admin will make the call. So there's no harm in trying.
If anyone can find toadies in the guide, please let me know.
Cheers.

Firstly a salmon. You can't see the end of the ruler because the mtfisho775 was in the way. The ruler is 40cm so give or take this one. Salmon was around 40cm. I did catch bigger but the action was too hot to get the camera out :oops:

Pinkie Snapper-34cm. Once again caught one about 40cm but no mtfisho775 doh. Oh well.

Bream-36.5cm

For each species of fish not listed a bag/possession limit of 5 applies. quote from the DPI guide

as they are not a protected fish 5 may be caught and kept - I however C/R mine so some one else could catch it
