Secrets to taking kids fishing

taking kids fishing

A way to catch quality fish while keeping the kids entertained is to anchor near good structure and put out a live bait, which will look after itself, and while it’s swimming around you can spend time helping the kids catch smaller fish to keep them happy. I have landed jew, jacks, big flathead and numerous offshore species on livies …

Big jewfish offshore from Brunswick Heads

He assumed the spearfisher knew it was a big shark, and this is where things got a bit funny because the spearfisher thought he was fighting a marlin, but they never communicated this to each other. Anyway, you can imagine the result. Amid a barrage of profanities with the word shark thrown in a few times, the spearfisher came out …

Monster Murray cod on Bassman 4×4 spinnerbait

bassman 4x4 spinnerbait

We had travelled only a short distance when the first strike hit the lure like a stray bullet, the rod tip cracking hard on the side of the boat as it loaded up solidly. In less than 2m of water, we would no doubt have driven over this fish dozens of times during the season and not had a clue …

I worked my way back to camp just after dark using a topwater approach but failed to entice any further interest.

Southeast Queensland prawns and jacks

I run a Lowrance HDS-12 on my tinnie and if I can’t see prawns on the down scan, I won’t throw my net. It shows prawns up so well that you can pick and choose the schools that are more dense. Yes, it may sound like cheating, but prawning cuts into my fishing time, so I like to maximise my casts. I’m …

Hervey Bay fishing with Fraser Guided Fishing

Hervey Bay fishing with Fraser Guided Fishing 7

It had been a long time since I’d caught decent size pelagic fish and I’d forgotten just how much fun it is to have your line-burning retrieve stopped in its tracks as a super-fast sportfish takes off in the other direction with your lure in its mouth. Having not previously caught mackerel on anything heavier than 10lb gear, I was …

Good fish about in Broadwater

Mud crabs love whiting frames as bait but we have also had success with reef fish frames. The best shop-bought bait will always be mullet chopped in half to allow plenty of scent into the water. While the water stays clean, sand crabs are around as well, with the mouth of the Nerang River providing the better-quality sandies. This is …
