Lake Tinaroo Barra Bonaza

lake tinaroo barra

All the areas I fished last year with Luke were well and truly out of the water this time and our better fish came from casting the points, while trolling accounted for several smaller fish. This is an exceptionally large lake and if you only have a smaller vessel or don’t feel comfortable travelling too far afield, barramundi can be …

Making the most of mackerel season

mackerel season brunswick heads

Lewan and I were trying to skull drag our mackerel to the boat on many days and this often worked on the smaller fish but boy did we lose some. We pulled hooks, broke hooks, broke wire traces and broke the line in an effort to get the mackerel past the sharks. As annoying as it is not being able …

Brisbane River The Brisbane River has been on fire this year, with large numbers of threadfin salmon and jewies caught regularly.

Cleaning up Gold Coast carp on fly

gold coast carp on fly

They can be frustrating at the best of times but any carp caught and taken out of our waterways is one (or more) native fish better off. Targeting carp on fly is not the easiest of tasks. I use 5 and 7-weight fly rods, using line weights to match the rods, as well as 8-10lb leader. As far as flies …

A beginner’s guide to catching black marlin

catching black marlin gold coast

Luckily though, a change in wind direction to the south had virtually overnight pushed the warmer, blue water back in. How, you might ask? In very simple terms, persistent northeasterlies move large amounts of warmer surface water towards the beach. This water then gets pushed or sucked back out to the left (in the southern hemisphere) and out to sea. …
