LAST month I wrote about my pre-fish for the B.A.S.S. Australia Nation round to be held at Lake Boondooma.

Going light to get the bite

IT is mighty chilly, and my fingers would prefer to be tucked under a blanket, not tapping a keyboard. The weather change has started to affect the fish.

offshore mulloway

IT is that time of year when we are spoilt for species to target offshore. On the shallow grounds we’ve seen a lot of offshore mulloway or jewies as they are affectionately known.
