Looks like they are actually surf fishing for salmon in Australia

Anyone else checking this out? :confused:

The Pacific salmon is genus Onchorhynchus...
I have some Alvey sales lit where they use the
word "salmon" but it is unclear if that is a
name for a local fish or if any Genus
Onchorhynchus ever get that far south. I do
know that they go as far west as Japan...

If you REALLY want to find out, search
for
salmon AND Australia AND Onchorhynchus

and see what turns up. You might want to
try several search engines since they all
index the web differently, and others just
pass the query to Google and use Googles
results (ie, they're bogus).

I watch the Out door channel and the Outdoor Life Network channel continuously. The "big fish" was the name of the show. There are a bunch of saltwater fishing shows that come on the Outdoor Channel.

Greetings All!

I remember an Aussie show called "Big Fish Down Under." Unbelievable fishing in the surf on little islands along the Great Barrier Reef. As with all things in the Land of Oz, the fish all had strange names that just didn't seem to fit the species shown (like calling a 50 pound fish with giant teeth a "perch"), so I'd sure be interested in what they'd consider a salmon. One show was strictly devoted to the barramundi, pure evil with fins and a tail. Anything they couldn't immediately identify was a "jack"... Probably one of the few true fishing frontiers left!
