We all need to let the authorities know how we still require access to these locations throughout NSW. Make sure you have your say by December …

Entertaining Fishing Trips Offshore

HELAINE Wilesmith took the reins at the monthly meeting while Rob Schomberg was off gallivanting around the world.

While the odd gutter is visible on South Ballina and Angels beaches, the numbers of fish they are producing has been fairly low. Some of the better action has come from Boulders and Seven Mile beaches, with quality dart and bream taking pipis and beach worms during the run-up tide. At this time …

Putting Viking Kayaks Through Their Paces

EVER since I had first heard about the new Viking Kayaks models being released, I had been fairly keen to get out on the water to see how they fared. When I eventually had the fish at the surface I realised it was a spotty mackerel and I debated how to get it on board with no gaff or lip …
