Threw a flickershad out behind me and as it hit the water it was smashed by this little beauty.

What a lovely surprise!
I am yet to get a Toga, but hope to change that this summer.
Was it at Kba or NP?
EDIT Just realise you are in a boat, so that rules out Kba!

Fresh is best, but I don't mind some salt every now and then!

I have caught nearly 40 toga from lake K, but havnt caught one therein ages, I actually caught more from the bank than in the yak. I would cast out after bass and as the lure got to the edge of the weed bed the toga would grab it, probably lost more than I caught, head shakes and straightened hooks on beetlespins.

thanks for sharing,

We paid nearly $32 each for the toga in NPD and lake K there at 250mm, plus a few big breeders were put in to lake K as well around 80 or 90cm. My smallest 30cm and biggest 85cm. They have gone a bit quite at the moment, might get better in summer.

Not the best of pics, I couldnt get the whole toga in the pic, I was trying to be quick. But as you can see the tail is hanging over one side and the head the other side.
