  1. south queensland Reports On Prawns In The Bay Yet

    When the prawns are on just follow the crowds! I generally look anywhere from Jacobs Well to north to Redland Bay marina. Popular spots are Saltworks (bottom tip of Macleay island, western tip of Karragarra island, Jacksons (about halfway down west side of Russell island, the Powerlines (deep channel between Long and Russell island - southern end), the channel opposite Rocky Point, Stieglitz (around the moored boats), channel between Stieglitz and Jacobs Well, and the moored boast at Jacobs Well. There are a few spots in between these more popular spots - having a good sounder and being able to recognise prawns on it is the real key. Finding a spot away from the crowds is gold, but follow the crowds initially to learn the popular spots.
  2. south queensland Wahooooooo

    Cracking fish - and look at those conditions!
  3. reviewing Photo Gps Link

    I just checked your first pic from your post "Maiden Voyage for Quampie" and while it does tell me the phone and model used (Samsung G930F), the time taken, focal length, exposure, etc there was no GPS info in the pic. Not sure if this pic had GPS info when you posted it or not though. Some websites automatically strip GPS info from pics for security reasons - not sure if AFO does though?
  4. Quampie Needs An Eski

    Have you considered using the esky as you seat - get a marine cushion made for the top? I did this with my Hornet - had a 110l Waeco ice box and it was just the right height to sit on and could take fish up to a metre long. plenty of knock offs out there that appear to be rebadged and sell for cheaper.

    born and bred in the south (yes I bleed blue) - room for a deckie too (if my wife lets me go fishing haha)
  6. Gold Coast Fisho

    Hey Angus. Haven't chased them at all lately but the cold weather (and dirty water) should slow them down a little. I know the ocean temp has dropped 3 degrees and with all the fresh running in the creeks they must have dropped also.
  7. Gold Coast Fisho

    Been fishing on the Goldy for many years and more recently hare started to venture offshore. The two guys I used to fish with have respectively moved away or taken on new interests so I am looking for a new fishing mate (or two). Over the years I have lost umpteen hours of sleep chasing Jacks and Fatties on lures, plus more recently chasing Pelagics offshore on bait and lures. Have been madly renovating the last couple of years so haven't fished much, but it is time to get back into it. I currently have 2 boats (one will appear in the classifieds soon) - with the newer one suited for inshore and offshore. All the gear and some idea! Marty
  8. Kingscliff Scouting

    Only advice I can give for Wooli os to try the Oysters from the shed that is right on the edge of the river - best I have ever had, Wooli is one of the cleanest rivers I have ever fished - plenty of Fatties around the weed beds upstream.
  9. Red Dog Days

    I reckon I know that spot and have heard stories of big fish there - but thought it had been fished out. Gets a fair bit of pressure - especially on the run-in. Never had much luck there myself, but haven't put too may hours in. Cracking catches.
  10. Yamaha Mechanic Gold Coast

    +1 for Garry (gdmarineservices). Have used him several times and happy with everything. My mate uses Whitewater Marine at Ashmore regularly and he rates them highly. Marty
  11. My first jack!!!!

    Hey stranger - finally got one hey? Great fish - only problem is you didn't leave yourself much room to improve!
  12. Gold Coast

    Water temp dropped to 19 degrees during the week but is back up to 21 degrees today. I was out last Sunday thru the Seaway and down to Mermaid. Very quiet except for numerous schools of undersize Tailor smashing small bait. The bait was everywhere. Most was concentrated from Sth Straddie down to Narrowneck. Plenty of boats on Palmy this morning bit i don't know if any fish got caught. Marty
  13. Juvy Jacks in Numbers

    You have to love those people who think because they live on the water, they own the water. They really should get educated on what their actual rights are before they do something they may possibly regret. I generally move on if they start acting like freaks but I know others that don't mind a good argument. There is one lady in one of the more exclusive estates that gets upset because her oversize dog starts barking at any boats and upsets the neighbours. Her solution is not the obvious one of keeping her dog under control, but rather to throw rocks in the water near where you are to scare off any fish. Imagine having that much money and still being angry with the world! Some nice fish there too Kris lol Marty
  14. sold Plastic wanted for esky.

    Bri, I got some plastic welding done by a guy in Nerang years ago - he, or someone similar might be able to help you? He repaired a transducer for me. Worth a call? Marty
  15. Woodgate Trip in a week

    Hey mate, Was at Burrum Heads for 4 days last weekend and the bad news is the fishing was slow. The northerlies have shut down the fishing and only the locals seems to be catching any decent fish in numbers. It was that windy we ended up fishing the ramps at night and managed to get some decent Whiting amongst the smaller stuff. Mud crabs were on the move but the majority were undersize bucks. A few Flathead were starting to get caught along the edges of the bank in front of Burrum on the low tide but nothing over 50cm. The locals told me the Mackerel had started to show before the northerlies arrived, but had shut down with the wind and resultant dirty water. They also said there were good Whiting up the Gregory but it was too windy for me to bother going for a run. Good Luck Marty Obviously Woodgate is somewhat protected in a northerly, but you still have to fish the same water.
