        Anyone fished Rompin and if so can you recommend a skipper/ boat etc
      2. Wow, that is cold! Sharks are washing up on a beach in Massachusetts frozen completely solid amid a record-breaking cold snap in the United States. The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy said it had found three dead thresher sharks stranded on the shore of the Cape Cod Bay in Brewster, south of Boston, in the last three days. The first two were "likely stranded due to cold shock" it said. The third was frozen solid.

      4. Fish Fever

        Hi All! As a musician and fishing addict, I thought I'd write and record a song to reflect this passion. It's on the following link: I had to work quite hard to get some scraps of footage as the fishing hasn't been too good lately... Hope you enjoy!
      5. Had a couple of hours to spare this morning, so Ferg and I hit NPD, first time I have been out there on the water since christmas I think. Leastwise there were trees growing out of my shrimp pot floats! (Still had lots of shrimp in them though!) Anyway water was way down, the boat ramp now being a causeway, and the fishing was tough, managed one bass trolling, then picked up a forkie when in desperation we went looking for Tillapia in the shallow water. Further down the huge tree stump is finally out of the water, must of been a magnificent tree in its day, be close to 2 metres across I reckon. Ended up flaked out in the air con after lunch, was buggered. Not the best time of the year to be out in the sun!
      6. The King Of The Snapper Family

        this proper cubera was caught on speed jig last week, at the Panafishing lodge
      7. Hey team, Well we are back and what a bloody great trip. This is the 3rd time I have been and was a highlight. In some ways things were quieter with some of the rivers being muddy due to heavy rains but in other ways it was better with this forcing us off old routines and finding new grounds. In fact while checking last years pictures I realised that although the Spot Tail bass count was down directly due to the Pandi River being high and brown, the tally of Black Bass was up as we were forced to fish other rivers like the Sai. The trip started well as the crew met at the air port. It is always fun meeting the whole crew for the first time as this sort of trip almost ensures you have a fun, intrepid and keen crew that will get on. 8:00am beers at the air port is always fun as well. I am going to mostly let pictures do the talking but please feel free to ask any questions. We arrived at Baia after a day and a half of travel to see the ever dominating volcano... The first day were cracking with Ian @fergie taking 9 spots on the first day alone (including a nice 25lber) and my mate Robbie @Drop Bear getting on the board with his first spot and black ever. It was a tough first day for me but good things come to those that wait. The next I headed out with @Tybo's dad Darcy and had a cracking little session picking up 5 blacks and him 1. A few bycatch as well we dubbed River Chicken. Over the first couple of days a few of the other boats did well also with some really quality blacks landed, 99% on surface. I know the mainland has plenty of options to troll up bigger fish... But I honestly do not think you can beat the surface boof of topwater blackbass. As always bass were the target but plenty of bycatch kept us more than entertained in between hits. With a whole lot of dirty water coming through sporadically we also did our fair share of bluewater with some decent result. Most of us did not have the gear for this... Not technically anyway but we made do with us bass gear with surprising results. This is something I would gear up for and try and a lot harder with in the future with awesome rare species like Maori Perch and High Fin Trout being some of the fish not readily available in Australia to target. PS Sam's yellowfin was a 30kg fish. Awesome on GT gear with only 5 meters of drag taken hahaha. Crazy tug of war battle. What a crew and what a trip. Cannot wait to get back in there 2018!!!
      8. It was one of those perfect days where the sun was shining, the surf was gentle (for the west coast) and the fish were biting....
      9. Squid Feeding

      12. Just another week on the Tuna Coast of Panama

        3rd group of the season were 3 French that fished with us for 4 days and, besides the usual reliable action on jack crevale and big eye jacks, sierras, small tunas and snappers, very few outstanding fish were caught: one nice rooster and 3 good bluefin trevally were pretty much the only standout fish they caught. Then, things got a lot better, with lots of action and variety for the 4th group of the season led by dedicated roosterfish anglers Tommy and Jorgen. This is the 7th trip at the Panafishing lodge for those guys, and as you can see, rooster fish has gotten under their skins ! A lot of roosterfish were released, way too many to post all pictures here. Some really big fish were lost. I trust this report is a good illustration of the variety we get on the Tuna Coast of Panama, where 10-12 species a day is not only feasible but quite standard. As always, all fish were caught on artificials and 95% of them released. All our reports can be found on our website. We post a report for every group that visit us, so anyone can see what happens here on good and not so good weeks.
      13. Big fish on poper in Panama

        Thought you guys would like to see some different species, so here is the report from the last group that visited us. All fish caught on popper or jigs ! After an amazing first week at the Panafishing lodge, things started slowly for the second group: very few fish and no big ones for the first 2 days. The action got much better towards the end, and although the numbers were not impressive, the big ones were definitly out there ! The first boat was not the most lucky one. 3 big cuberas and one big rooster were lost and could have make a huge difference, but the lack of experience and some broken popper played against them. A big amberjack was caught on popper but the rod broke in the first seconds of the fight, due to a "cubera drag". The fish was boated nevertheless but it's a shame for the nice fight it could have been. Some good fish were taken despite all the bad luck, including 2 nice roosters for Andreas: Good amberjack on topwater: On the second boat, Arnold got 2 trophy roosters and a nice cubera: The 3rd boat fished the best. Starting with Eddy with a trophy cubera and a big rooster: Fishermanb of the week was Petter, with 2 trophy cubera and a trophy rooster: cubera 1: cubera 2: cubera 3: and a beautiful rooster:
      14. Hawaiin Bonefish Holiday 2015

        Hi guys, thought some of you might be interested in these photos, Bonefish are amazing one of the fastest strongest fish i have ever seen for their size. These were caught on small crabs during a recent holiday, best fish 76cm and around 8 lb, caught on 8 lb braid and 12lb leader. cheers wayne
      15. PNG 2016 Trip: EOI's Open

        After an insanely successful 2015 trip (over 200 black and spot tail bass caught plus hundreds of by catch including jacks, tuna, dollies and more) I am putting together another trip for 2016 to BAIA Sportfishing PNG. Looking at 6 or 9 people and several seats are already filled. Let me know if you are keen and I can give you more information. Once confirmed happy to really go through the trip, what lures worked etc. PM me if you are interested. Dates at this stage are the 24th - 30th October subject to securing them with a full crew.
      16. PNG Trip 2015

        Well I am back and may edit this post as there is SO much to cover... The trip was amazing and so much more than I hoped it would be. Baia is simply phenomenal offering so many river and bluewater opportunities. The lodge itself was top notch and the fishing was out of this world. Way more surface action than the last trip as well which is always a highlight. Sef, Henry and myself headed to the furthermost river for our first days foray to cast up some blacks... The blacks were there in good numbers and so were a lot of quality jacks... On the way to the Torio there were also some good bluewater captures including mahi mahi and yellow fin... The next day we hit the Pandi which turned out to be a river we frequented. This river is ALL about the surface with log jams and lay downs everywhere making throwing diving lures tough. Although there were plenty of blacks at the mouth, this river was home to tonnes of monster spot tails as well... After spot tail mania we had a fairly so so day in the Langa Langa river. Awesome hits but conversions to big bass were a little slow. In saying that we did have some fun out the front among some birds hooking into countless trevs, queenies and mack tuna. So for our last day we decided to once again concentrate on the Pandi River. More spot tails abounded but you have seen enough of those, I will out up however Henry's beast and the biggest for the trip. If things were recorded this could easily be a world record as Henry caught in on a 8/14lb Nordic Stage Cheater with a 2500 sized reel and 16lb braid. Just unheard of over there. The guide said not only was it one of the lightest rods he had ever had in the boat... It was the largest spot tail bass he had ever seen. It measured in at 36.5lb (not a guess actually weighed). After the trip had officially ended Henry and I were lucky enough to stay on for two more nights as guests of Riccard the owner of Baia. We headed up into the headwaters of the Kulu river on the first day and caught a collection of JP's and Spot Tails on bream sized gear (actually our new prototype Nordic Stage Loki rods). This was heaps of fun and ended in a blow up mattress ride back down the river selectively ignoring the warming signs... Our last day was spent bluewater and snorkeling. Some good trevs and doggies were hooked with smaller ones coming in. I was grossly under gunned for doggies but it was fun to give it a crack! Snorkeling was just world class. And that was that! Back to the real world! After a few early inquiries it looks like I will be doing this again in 2016 so feel free to contact me if you are keen to get on board. Cheers. Angus
      17. Honeymoon Charter in Samoa

        Howdy! You can't just go to such a beautiful place without at least one fishing experience. Once we arrived in Upolu I got in contact with as many charter operators as possible about 12. Most were either booked, bad whether, down for maintenance and in one case extremely expensive. I did get in contact with a charter run by Savaii lagoon resort on the island of Savai'i, which is run by a couple Aussies Dave & Tania who are absolutely awesome people. Unfortunately we were limited by both tide's (as you can't get out off the reef's/ lagoons until high tide) and whether 20+ knots and 2m swells. We did manage to sneak out for a small 4 hour charter which they only troll. The charter operator Dave said that the direction we had to go hasn't been fished in a while and the strikes were only few and far between. One GT come over the boat after about an hour. With a double hook up of the Larger GT and Dog tooth tuna coming in just about to arrive back at the resort. I was happy to scratch a dog tooth off my bucket list, and the GT gave Chole the run around for about 20 mins. It's always the girls the get the bigger fish
      18. Aramia River PNG Black Bass

        Hi guys, i know Angus is off to another part of the country to chase these terrific fish and i thought he might want to see this. We are just back from an 8 day trip 100 nautical miles up the Aramia River in western PNG, to say it was awesome would be an understatement. We did the trip on a 70 foot mothership called the K 2 0, we had a skipper, 2 chefs, 3 boat boys and 4 guides for the 9 passengers on board, to say we were spoilt would be an understatement. Water was very dirty and low due to lack of rain but the fishing was great, my daughter Casey, my mate Lyndsay and myself landed 21 bass up to 32lb and 87cm, we lost more fish than we landed as these fish are brutal when they hit a lure. Bycatch was 17 Barra up to 90cm, 3 Saratoga and As many Snakeheads as you wanted to catch, locals were friendly and helpful and the younger kids were fascinated with my daughter as they hadn't seen a whits girl before. We didn't use any fancy expensive gear just 15 to 30lb Shimano Terez rods with 6000 Shimano Stradic reels, 50 lb Braid and 80lb leader. Best lures by far were Barra Classics, with the best colour the white with a red head, good old quantas colour catches everything. I am sure Angus will have as much fun as what we had and i look forward to seeing his report, here's a heap of photos to look at, cheers wayne
      19. Hi Guys, I went on a trip of a life time to Kanton Island, part of the Phoenix Island Groups, in the nation of Kiribati and part of the worlds largest marine reserve (Phoenix Islands Protected Area) with Luke Wrysta of Rock Expeditions. To put it shortly: the fishing was absolutely insane. Kanton Island was a US Military base during WWII and many artefacts can still be found on the Island, including plane wrecks, ship wrecks, army trucks, a runway, a dilapidated wharf, fuel silos and gen sets. The island has permanent population of 26 and has not been fished by westerners since 1994 by a small group of American fly fishermen. Our Story: 7 fishermen, 1 captain, 1 crew, 1 Kiribati government official "Observer". Fishermen: 3 Aussies, 1 Malaysian, 1 Pommie, a Saffa and a bloke from Guam. Departing Port: Apia Samoa Distance to destination: ~650nm Average Speed of Boat: 6.5kn Transit time to Island: ~100 hours. Lucky the weather was beautiful. (myself, Luke "Rock" Wrysta, Stewie (UK)) We trolled the whole way and hooked over 10 billfish including a blue, a black and short billed spearfish. And 2 yellowfin tuna Which ended up like this: Any ways, for the 6 days we were on the island the GT fishing was insane with around 160 landed in total, including 52 by Stew alone, and mid 40's for myself and Jimmy (Guam). The fly fishermen did well on the bones, triggers, GT, napoleon wrasse etc. There are many pics I cannot post due to water marks and them being used in publications, but here's a few GT shots from my camera.

      21. Another Great Day on our Atlantic Wilderness

        More pics at Update 150515: Another Day on our Great Atlantic Wilderness It was a weird sea that greeted us after picking our way through the breakers of Quinby Inlet. The wind was dead calm and the forecast of two foot seas with a nine second period was a bit off, more like three feet. But the strangeness really lied in the wavelengths. They were very short, perhaps three or four second periods. We were being roughed up by a calm ocean. So the ride out to our first stop took a bit longer than it should have. It was the opening day of sea bass fishing. Our previous trip, about 10 days earlier yielded lots of cod but only one sea bass. So the big question was, would the black fish be there now. The answer came quickly. Fish were hooked up by Ruta and Don McGavock almost immediately after the rigs hit the bottom. The day was spent fishing two different wrecks. It wasn’t wild catching but kept us very interested. The take was 25 sea bass including one that was five pounds five ounces and two others in the four pound range. We also brought in seven wonderful codfish between four and five pounds. Many undersized bass were released as well as numerous tautog up to about six pounds. By the end of the day, the fish box was quite full. While sitting on one of the wrecks, a small group of what we think were sooty shearwaters came to call. In fact, one of the birds swam within a few meters of the boat. It seemed very curious about us or our activities. Perhaps it been fed by humans previously or thought we were an island. As for other wildlife only a few gannets and migrating loons were spotted. The SeaWyf encountered two pods of dolphin during the day. Always a welcome sight. Back at the homestead everything is planted and raring to get going. The Asian pear trees, paw paws, apples, apricots and che are full of small fruit. Even the young flora are showing promise. There will be some plums, gooseberries and raspberries. The pineapple guavas are finally showing signs of recovery and leafing out after two very tough winters. They will not bear fruit this year but at least they survived. Great things to come in the future. There’s also promise of lots of figs, persimmons and kiwis this year. We’re eating orpine (sedum, live-forever), along with our green onions and herbs in every salad. The weeds that are pulled up out of our yard are nutritious as well. We had a good feed of lambs quarters the other night. A cardinal took up residence, at about eye-level, in a bush next to our front porch. We glance at her each time we pass but are careful not to disturb her motherly activity. So hopefully we’ll be grandparents soon and then can put up profuse numbers of pics like all the other grandparents/parents on Facebook. We feel extremely privileged to live on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where we can still immerse ourselves in the natural world though so very close to congested civilization.

      23. Successful NZ Trip

        Well I have been offline again for a while but I wanted to do a 2 week old report from NZ... In short it was really successful and I will let the pictures do most of the talking. Some good info though... Of all the lures we took it was 1 accidently packed micro jig that had massive success. Boydy had brought this lure, typically used on trevs etc in the Noosa river. Although small hard bodies and plastics reigned supreme in the skinny water streams, this jig smashed it In deeper pools and lakes. It was also the only lure to claim any rainbow trout. I have loads more pictures of fish and scenery on my good camera but have not got them off yet. These are just phone pictures. I will put up some more later if there is any interest. A lot of KM's were covered for these fish but it was well worth it.
      24. When Mark Johnson contacted me last month somewhere in end march for a 3 days fishing trip in Thailand, I responsed to his requests promptly. Prior to their arrival, I made sure I've done all necessary arrangements & preparations for everything to goes smoothly as planned.
