      1. Hi From Toowoomba

        Hi all, I'm a father of two teenagers who express a small but growing interest in fishing. I've got some gear and some experience but rarely go fishing on my own. Looking to get the kids interested in it more and expand the family outing experiences by getting a boat. My daughter likes being towed on a floating object and my son likes the idea of getting a license on anything that is powered by petrol so I think a boat might be a start. My wife is a non-starter on boats at this stage. I'm new to fishing on the East Coast. I come from WA. Fishing in brown silty rivers seems all wrong but I'm coming around to the idea. A number of species are new to me too (like yellowbelly). I hope to attend a social or two and to perhaps hire someone to aid in helping my son to catch his first fish ! Cheers, Steve
      2. Hello

        Guess whos back... Sorry for being so quiet. General life issues. Haven't fished since 1770. Got boat wet on weekend. Such a good feeling. Also last trip for my Brooker. Two snapped crossmembers. Bought Redco Sportsman in December. Doing mods for my June Stanage trip, will be ready this week.

      4. G'day Fellow Fishers

        G'day all, I'm Don and I'm just getting back into fishing after a few years away from it. I have an old 4.85m Express with a fairly new Honda 60 on the back. In the past I mostly fished Moreton Bay and not too far offshore from the Gold and the Sunny Coasts. Since I got started again it has mostly been the bay. Nearly finished fitting out a 12ft punt with electric power so I can fish Hinze and NP dams. Cheers, Don.

      10. New To Fishing In Aussie

        Hi all! I am an international student from Singapore studying in QUT. I have been living in Kelvin Grove for 4 months and am new to fishing in Aussie. Fishing has been my favourite hobby since young and I really admire the catch and release policy over here. I would really love to meet someone that can show me the way to fishing in Brissy. Unfortunately, my setup is in Singapore at the moment but I hope to bring them in next year or maybe get one that is reasonably priced. Tight lines everyone~
      11. New To Brissie.

        Hi. I am a Pom who has lived in Australia for 8 years and recently moved from Geelong Vic to Brisbane QLD. I prefer freshwater lake or small (ish) river fishing, don't really care what size or type of fish I catch just enjoy being out there relaxing and I've always been a catch & release fisherman. Can someone please confirm if you need a licence to fish in QLD, I've been told no by work colleague but he didn't seem too sure Any tips on places & or technique's to fish would be appreciated, I don't have a tinny or boat so would be land based fishing. Cheers in advance people Pez.
      12. Hi there So this is my first post in the forum. I come from Beijing, China. My name is Hongfei Hao. I have an English name---Ollie. Hmm... I actually work for a fishing product brand. Nah, don't worry. I am not direct selling here in this community. Hope I can learn more about fishing in this forum. Cheers! Good luck and tight lines

      16. Leaving The Nt To Brissy

        Hi All I'm in the Air force and it looks like I will be moving to Brisbane next year for work. I have my own boat its a 5.3m tiller steer seajay (pretty much a BIG Tinnie). I favor blue water style fishing and will be looking for deckies when I arrive. I will be in desperate need for some local knowledge so get ready for me to pick your brains.
      17. Well Hello There

        Hello all. Names Damo. 39yrs old Been fishing my whole life from Moreton bay to the far north. I prefer off shore but don't say no to a good jack attack or chasing snaps in the bay. Very computer illiterate so bare with me. Found a few forums and joined up. Currently in the process of finishing my new plate boat. Its off to paint this week then the fun begins with fit out. Once it's up and running I'll be back doing what I love, enjoying the water with my family with a heavy focus on fishing and exploring with the kids. They're to young for offshore so may have a spot spare at times. I drive Toyota. I drink rum and single malt scotch. I ride KTM. I fly RC planes. I love fishing. Junky is my usernam because with everything I do I turn into a Junky that can't get enough. I know junkie is the drug'o it I can't spell very well so I use a y. My 6 year old daughter will proof read before I hit post. If I've forgotten anything then I'll catch up. Cheers Damo.
      18. G'day

        Hey guys, my name is Andrew, been lurking for a couple of months, finally decided to register. I'm 27, born and raised on the Gold Coast,, hadro interest in fishing, actually actively avoided it, until about two months ago when I suddenly decided I wanted to fish. My boss has a big boat for going out on the reef but we're usually to busy to get out, then after seeing him all week I don't often feel like spending the weekend with him too. I usually go with another mate that has a smaller boat but I'm really more interested in land based estuary stuff so far. Just can't catch anything. Just bought the missus a cheapie rod because she has always bugged me to go and we have our first child due in May so I figured now was a good time to start learning so I look like I have some idea before he's old enough to see through it. From all my googling this place has easily been the friendliest and most resourceful for all things fishing, particularly SEQLD based. Hopefully I can contribute something useful soon. Thanks guys.
      19. Hi All.

        Hi everyone, New here, been lurking for awhile, liked the conversations so decided to join. Names are Gary & Ann, We live about 80 k"s from the salt but get on the water monthly, mostly into crabbing but throw in a line in between. Have a 3.8 Seajay/ 15 Merc. Will get off for now and hope to report something end of the week as we're going crabbing on Thur/Fri. Be good Gary
      20. 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

      22. G'day

        Just bought a property just out of Ashford and setting up a fishing retreat, been hitting Pindari and the Severn and getting some decent catches of cod and yellow belly, enjoying the lack of traffic and peace and quiet for a change. Thought I would join and mingle after lurking for a while.
