slow-pitch jigging

The first fish to come aboard with a new piece of jewellery was a good-sized grunter. It was high fives all round and a quick pic before it went straight into the Esky. With the first fish over the side, we all became a little more at ease and figured we might be in for a good day. Fishing these …

Stocked only with Operation World Record genetics, the path to grow the next world-record bass became clearer, as Jalisco combined the best elements of La Perla with an upgraded design and forage plan creating a new and improved big-bass factory. “Gary built and manages the lake, and we stocked it with our Operation World Record fish,” Forshage said. “Under the …

Summer tactics for Moreton Bay

moreton bay snapper summer

Also abnormal for that season was the number of big, often unstoppable snapper encountered. I believe the abundance of bait and nutrients exiting the river systems, coupled with the significantly reduced fishing pressure (during and straight after the floods), was the primary reason for those fish being there. With that theory in mind, it’s important to pinpoint the areas of …

Our biggest barra went 98cm and it was boated on a Lox Gen2 Baitcaster, 60lb braid and 80lb leader.

Hectic fishing on Hinchinbrook Island holiday

On the first cast another large coral trout ate my plastic and swam straight into a bommie. I have never felt so out-gunned when using such a high calibre of gear. After hits and misses, a few little reefies such as stripey seaperch, a spanish mackerel and various sweetlip, we left the area with a score of coral trout five; …

Impoundment barra in full swing

The weeks after the event saw the fishing turn around and the impoundment barra come right on the chew. Young Damien Mills from Tamworth stayed for a week at Faust and was straight into the action with his first barra going 106cm after it inhaled a Zerek Flat Shad. With Damien was his good mate David Masters, who upgraded his …

Kayaking for Gold Coast mangrove jack

Your gear will cop a lot and I’ve had endless trouble with my Daiwa Tatula baitcast reel. My usual kayak partner in crime, Brad, has also had the same issues. When chasing jacks, 20-25lb braid will be sufficient, coupled with a 1.5m, 40lb leader. While on leaders, there has been a lot of talk lately about the FG knot and …
