Bass Fishing Tips from a Professional

They are the paddle-tail soft plastic, metal blade and the old-time favourite, the spinnerbait. The soft plastic is my favourite lure presentation because of its versatility. Its natural subtle action allows it to be fished year round, whether to an edge or down deep on both active and inactive fish. Fishing a plastic to an edge is most effective in clear water …

Pointers for Prawns, Whiting and Brisbane River Threadfin

 Working baitfish schools and ledges (where shallows drop off into deep water) is the norm, however on this occasion only fish and no baitfish showed on the sounder.

Land-Based Fishing Around Brisbane

I don’t mind fishing this location with the kids because often they’ll be preoccupied with building sand castles anyway. It’s also great because I don’t have to worry about dingoes or four-wheel-drives on the beach. When land-based fishing you sometimes really have to put in the hard yards and try several areas, but it’s a great way to while away the …
