  1. south queensland Hervey Bay-dash

    yep great part of the world for sure, and we're lucky to have it.
  2. The Right Boat.

    Stessco make a great boat. congratulations and hope that you get it on time and it does the job. I'm sure it will. Have fun and be safe .
  3. south queensland Hervey Bay-dash

    Great report and great photos too. Glad you could make it up there.
  4. Fishing Murphy Reef

    Exactly what he said. No real bommies on Murphies; just look for fish and get experience out there. Start on the internet locations and work out.
  5. Marine Mechanic

    Always good to get a mobile mechanic around the place Danny,. What area or subuirbs mate?
  6. New Britain Png 2016: Pic Heavy

    Wow, what a trip. What fish. That volcano. Has your Ian been on one of your trips up there yet Angus?
  7. A Tough Call...

    I agree with Angus. Take your Dad's offer at face value. There would be advantages for him if you took the boat, and as the father of four boys, I would be very pleased if I could help one or all of my boys is some way like this. And in ways I have I suppose. So I think you're going down the right path in thinking about the sale in its entirety, with the pluses and minuses laid out to be considered. What I think anyway.
  8. Bigger Boat

    And I agree Wayne, I always stand when I'm travelling. It's so much easier hey.
  9. Bigger Boat

    Because I livebait for jacks and fingermarks a lot of the time I take alittle folding seat with me to take the strain off. My son who's a chippie set up the tool box on its side with tilted trays to suit plano sized tackle boxes. I would like a front deck so I could cast net from the front. That's the only problem I have, as I've fished heaps on the Mary, in the Strait, off Turkey Beach but also out on the hards and Cal 12 mile, murphy's etc. good little boat that I'm unloading if I can get the right coin for it.
  10. Bigger Boat

    Yep I agree. I've had to do some work to get the balance between estuary and offshore in little 5 m Stylecraft.
  11. Side View Sounder

    From my viewpoint, down view is ok but not much better than your normal sounder. Certainly in my little downview sounder it doesn't help much. You see down but there's not much more information than in your sounder's normal view. But sidescan lets you see more of what is beside you as well as under you, so you can get more detail from more area.
  12. Brissy River Jack

    If you look at the Mary, it should have heaps, as there are jacks all through the sandy strait. Reefs are close by and there's enough variation to mean that surely there'd be more jacks around. Just don't seem to catch them. Maybe the structure around River Heads means they're less likely to make it up river?
  13. Brissy River Jack

    Nice catch for sure. It's funny how you'll get jack in some creeks and not in others. In all my years of fishing the Mary, I've caught a total of just three jacks. In one afternoon. Off the same snag. Try to figure that out. You'd expect there to be millions given the conditions but I've not found that, although bargy and these fellas would no doubt be better equipped than I am to say there aren't many jacks in the Mary. However, I have caught many at Turkey, on Fraser, In the Burrum, Round Hill, in the Maroochy, the Baffle.. just not so much in the Mary.
  14. Fishing The Maroochy River

    OK, so you can get good jack, jewies, and trevors around the highway bridge. Not sure about yabbies but there are heaps of live herring around the bridge.It can be a long wait sometimes but if the kids are able to sit with a line in the water it's def worth a shot around the bridge itself. Also try anywhere from the bridge to the mouth for whiting and bream but it can get pretty busy so finding a quiet spot can be a battle. upstream from the bridge there are many accessible spots for a tinny. Lots of flathead through this system too. Good luck.
