Barrabundy,

maybe we should try dipping our sps in Ouzo :D :lol: :lol:

It works better if you drink the Ouzo, the fishing just appears better.

I used aniseed oil on bait as a kid in NZ, I can't remember it making any difference though.

Take Keza's advice and drink the Ouzo first. Then breathe on the sp

yes twisties indeed.

almost mixed my metaphors and gave the following as a clue

"life is full of .......situations" but i do believe thats the slogan for a small white lolly.

@ scott, i have a dozen redclaw in a tank at the moment and they eat anything (including each other)

@ crag, i dont know how far north redfin extend, not sure if they are in qld, maybe the water is too hot for them.

cheese seems to be a good attractant in many forms.

dont know if anyones posted this yet,

When I first came on to the fishing club scene aniseed was banned by the club I had Joined. I do not know if the ban was legislated or not.

To my knowledge, it was never law, but you're 100% correct in the fact that clubs and associations such as SQAFCA banned the use of aniseed amongst their members during their own comps.

First I've heard about the twisties though, if this is what is being referred to. I know bread gets lots of species excited, maybe it's the starches that gets them so hungry....
