Catches of spanish mackerel are now in full flight, with quality fish taken on our famous Spanish Specials. This lure works perfectly with a slow troll and is designed to catch bigger fish lurking deeper in the water column.

Our crew arrived back at the Port of Brisbane around 11:30am, making it an early but productive day of fishing with the boys, with smiles all round. It just goes to show that it’s not about how long you spend out there, it’s all about being on the right spot at the right time. This was certainly a Moreton Island …

Combing the Capricorn Coast

King salmon have come a long way in our area since the introduction of net-free zones two years ago. Side-imaging and down-imaging sounders mean that we recreational fishers are well aware of thready numbers throughout the area. This technology is impressive to say the least and being able to distinguish one species from another is next level. About 80 percent …

A plague of mosquitoes soon got us moving and we ducked into camp to dine on slow-cooked shanks for dinner. Day four started with a big breakfast cooked up by top bloke Stevo. With nice clear skies, no wind and …

Magical Lake Monduran barra

We hit this area hard because of the consistent water temperature. In this section you can find numerous small points with bushy trees in 1-3m of water and water lilies along the edges. These points were by far the standouts. Dad and I located four points holding barra thanks to our Humminbird Helix sounder with Mega Imaging. Once we found …

Prime time to target jewfish in Moreton Bay

target jewfish moreton bay

Tackle I often see people going to target jewfish with tackle I feel is too light. The argument of having fun is fine but getting the fish in faster is better for both the angler and fish. Baitcast and spin tackle with a rating over 6kg spooled with 20-40lb braid with 20-50lb leader is my preference because it gets the …

Gold Coast snapper and whiting biting

gold coast snapper and whiting

I am not sure where they are feeding on the run-in tide but I’m still looking. Another thing that has been noticeable this season is the week between the new and full moons has fished as well, if not better, than the weekend around the full and new moons. While Gold Coast whiting will eat a variety of baits as …

Cod research findings

cod research findings

LOOKING back over eight years of working with cod, with two professors, two doctors of biology and three biologists, not to mention 100 mad-keen cod anglers who stuck tags into over 1500 of these great freshwater fish, what has happened with the results?
