This footage was put together by Dylan Van Der Meulen who is a Fisheries researcher based in Batemans Bay. He has been assessing the importance of snags and other structure as spawning sites for Estuary perch. Plankton trawls combined with acoustic tagging methods have shown that structurally complex sites are preferred spawning locations for E.P.

Amazing footage!

Where are all these fish when I'm casting at structure?

About a decade ago there was a project to reinstate snags in our inland rivers, dont know if the same applied to rivers on the eastern escarpment.

Great Video but my wallet always cries at the cost of lost lures.

Yes, Dylan has collected some really neat underwater footage that nails the importance of snags & structure for fish.

Ric, you'd be onto the Tackleback for getting those lures back? They have a reasonable success rate.

Gravy, you're spot on - there was lots of good re-snagging work done inland a few years back, but there's still lots of room for improving our coastal waterways. Most snags were cleared out for navigation purposes over a century ago, when rivers were the only highways to developing coastal settlements.

It's a shame that the quality of footage has deteriorated
