  1. Good size shovel nose @christophagus ! I've always had a soft spot for them. Looks like a white spot too if I am not mistaken - I have only caught common's down here in the Brisbane area. Certainly beats the 3 sting rays I managed in the pine on the weekend.
  2. south queensland Zmans Sp

    Whilst not a z-man user myself, usually the curly-tail soft plastics are rigged such that the curl bends upwards (top of lure) facing the same way as the exposed hook. If so, the two olive rigs look upside down. Possibly the top pink rig as well. Hard to see in pic as the curl looks folded.
  3. Vacancy

    All the best Dino. Hope to get out with you, on NPD again, later in the year.
  4. Poor Show Lake K

    That's a shame @Dinodadog I was hoping you would give me a tour!! Last time I got out in lake K for a yak I only scored one bass in 2.5 hours.
  5. Blackwater Barramundi

    Nice work @Cmaltby Are there any Sooties in that area you fished?
  6. Moreton Quicky

    You did very well, except for the fine obviously $$$ I was out with a mate Saturday afternoon, in the great weather, around mud island and only managed undersized grassies, squire, bream and the like. Our fishing time was dictated by the wives and therefore only got to fish the mid run in tide... not ideal. I like the sounder pics. Makes me want to get out there again asap. Interesting that your water temp says 22.5°c. Mine was on 20°.

    Hey just saw this! Thanks for the great day Dino. What a great fishing spot that dam is when your on the water cruising around. I was only familiar with a few shore based locations but being in Dino's rig really lets you appreciate the NPD environment. Few additional pics below... Before the wind. Well set up rig. Hungry little fella.
  8. Smashing Weekend Sessions (pic Heavy )

    Nice one Dino! Looks like over twice the action we had last week in your rig. Must have been VERY busy on deck.
  9. Fish Id Please

    40cm!? I thought it looked 15cm. It's very stocky. Must be FULL of prawns and/or mullet.
  10. Fish Id Please

    Wow! Looks like a baby threadfin salmon. Never seen them under 50cm. Rare catch I would say.... just like seeing a baby crow.
  11. Anzac Day Lazy Session

    Thumper bream! Makes the tailor look tiny.
  12. Pine River - Another Hard Days Lurein'

    Yes exactly what was going through my mind.... and bullies.
  13. I liked the look of the overcast weather this morning and decided to take the boat for a days lure fishing on the Pine. I went out a couple of weeks ago and only managed 1 decent whiting and numerous undersize bream and flathead, using prawns. Not worth reporting on. Today I was hoping the water temp had dropped since a fortnight ago and wanted to stick to lures. Last year by this time I had already snared a Tailor and heaps of decent Flathead in the Pine.... different story this year. Water temp is still 22 degrees. I have never seen so much Mullet action in this river, or any river for that matter, as I did today. They were literally jumping everywhere upstream from deep water bend - during the entire run out tide. Countless large 40cm + models too. I should have captured video of the surface activity and snapshots of the sounder as it was epic. Anyway the mullet didn't really help with my angling success - After much time and much casting and much drizzle and much sand flies I felt somewhat deserved of this plump Flathead and 27cm Bream (that I returned to the water). Surprised to catch the Bream on such a large vibe - definitely the lure of the day. Also lost what must have been a hard fighting catfish on a small Berkley grub - slime on the line gave it away. All in all still worth me going out and slugging around some new discounted lures I picked up at BCF, Anaconda and Kmart sales bins.
  14. Good Start Bad End

    Nice yellow belly, but very expensive! I have now made a mental note not to purchase quick release rod holders for my canoe. They were on my shopping list. Dinodog, if you have a spare spot on one of your next NPD trips, especially over the next week, I would jump at the chance. I am not working for a week or two and would gladly chip in $$ where required. Do you regularly catch tilapia as well? I have fished land based spots around the dam and last week my son caught 2 on lure. Best going 42cm. I see them all over the north side of Brisbane now unfortunately. I also catch a few spangled perch which I don't think I have seen in your recent reports.

    I sure we were. There were plenty of boats out taking advantage of the weather. Of all the 4 boats in our "team" we actually caught the most keepers. We fished in 60 to 100m of water but had most success shallow in 60-70m.
