    Fishing with Nick Kyrgios and having a whale of a time

    Fishing with Nick Kyrgios and having a whale of a time

    Rob Paxevanos from Fishing Australia takes us fishing with Nick Kyrgios on Jervis Bay. They had a great time catching squid and experienced a real "Attenborough moment", off shore, with a massive school of krill turning the water red and attracting a feeding pod of whales. According to Rob the fishing was brilliant but for the first time in his life he didn't care. Rob was totally awestruck by the leviathans of the deep breaching, cavernous mouths agape, to feed on the tiny morsels.

    The Big Fish Burrendong is back

    The Big Fish Burrendong is back

    Our first cast this episode of TBF is with Matt Hansen from the Central West chapter of OZfish Unlimited with great news on Burrendong and the Macquarie River. Unfortunately the biggest freshwater fishing gathering in NSW, the Burrendong Classic, has had to be postponed due to COVID-19.



    Monaro Acclimatisation Society spokesperson Steve Samuels joins us to talk about the feral horse problem in the Snowy Mountains where, he says, beautiful alpine streams at the top of Tantangara have been "trampled into oblivion and are gone forever". He believes something has to be done about the numbers of feral horses in the park or more native fish and trout habitat will be "irreparably" damaged.



    Stinker shares the story of the fisherman who drop kicked the frozen chicken and Andy Thomsen teaches us how to make fish crackling on The Big Fish.
