      1. fishing Queensland Fishing Guides Wanted

        Hi everyone, Further to my call for fishing guides on the Gold Coast, I now need Guides in the following areas:- Cairns, Mackay, Whitsundays, Rockhampton and inland, Fraser Coast, Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. This is for casual beach fishing guides available to take 1-4 tourist beach fishing with min 48 hours notice. You will need to be a knowledgeable fisherman/woman, have a good personality and be patient enough to help guests throw a line in at the beach. The gift of the gab would also be ideal. If you check out our website ( you will see that we offer beach fishing as an option, which is very popular for families and those who get a little sea-sick out on boats. Our business targets the luxury market, ie, those who don't mind spending more to get good service. Our beach fishing is offered across Queensland and primarily attracts the Asian and North American markets who are usually staying at a 5 Star hotel and also expect 5 star all the way. We offer early morning or late afternoon beach fishing to ensure they catch a fish. The fishing spot is determined by our fishing expert based on season and weather conditions. The itinerary is that the guests are picked up by limo at their hotel, taken to the beach where they will meet you, then you will fish for about 3 hours. After that we finish with a gourmet breakfast or if its the afternoon, canapés and drinks. If this sounds like you, please send an email to with a short brief about you. Thanks Ange
      2. Whopper Yella

        Back in my own boat this morning, trolling, casting and jigging. Managed 71 bass and 2 yellas. When I hit the big yella I thought I was snagged, then there was a bit of movement and I thought I was bringing up a branch and up popped a nice 60cm yella. First pic was looking across the street before I left home. Dino
      3. Back In The Red

        Back in the red boat today after a slow day at Borumba yesterday with Stan, we only managed about a dozen small bass and one small yella casting to the edges looking for saratogas, we seen a few but no hookups. Any this morning after getting a wet bum from an early shower Glen and I managed to have a great morning on the lures. Trolling was OK and jigging and casting was OK as well. Managed 87 bass and one yella and I won the booby prize for landing the first forkie for the summer on a blade. Dino
      4. Another Red Square Day (pic Heavy)

        Had another day in the little red boat as a deckie. It was good to just sit back and relax and let someone else search for the bass. We managed 84 trolling and jigging, with some bigger fish found away from the small schools. Dino
      5. Dispelled The Myth

        Had a morning out with Stan ( Predator ) yesterday, and what a morning it was. Plenty of bass and a couple of yellas. We had heaps of double hookups and for a change the jigging was OK as well. Half way through the session Stan produces a banana, I said to him if he had been in Rays boat he might of ended up in the water. Thats twice in the last month that a deckie has had a banana, did it affect the fishing, not one bit, so there is another myth down the drain. Dino
      6. Help Please

        I am after help. I have been freshwater fishing for nearly 1 month now and I haven't had a single catch. I am using spinnerbaits and soft plastics. I am landbased but I am casting into snaggy areas. Am I dint something wrong?
      7. Trolling Great Jigging Poor

        Bass were very quite on the jigging side yesterday. Knowing that it was going to be a 34 deg day out at the dam and due to the fact that I had just been nuked all over I knew I had to be off the water early, so I made sure I was covered from head to toe and off I went. I lasted until 10am when the amount of clothes I had on was getting to hot. Anyway on the fishing side, the trolling was great but I couldnt take a trick on the jigging. I would find a small school and then go through just about the whole range of jig lures trying to entice the bass, but they said no to the lot. Even the gangbanger which got me over 25 a couple of days before, I am afraid there is going to be a couple of dead pelicans out there before much longer, they are getting smarter by the day, their lastest idea is to sit in line with your line that you are winding in, then when the bass gets close to the surface they dive for it. Its either that or you have 3 or 4 of them fighting around you, driving you crazy. Somebody started feeding them now we cant get rid of them, a few sinkers in the right direction might be the go.Its hard to have a peacefull days fishing out there now. Dino
      8. Crazydeeps + Gangbangers + Maggots

        Not a nice sounding heading, but the bass didnt mind they loved them all.
      9. No Sounder No Worries

        Started off trolling down the dam after a late start ( wife told me to get lost for a few hours while she had the girls over for a MC party, well I didnt have to be told twice, although it was raining when I left home at 10am) when one of the rods buckled over, knew I had a good fish, then up comes a whopper yella. Turned around and trolled through the same area and was onto another solid, but it knew where there was a snag and bricked me, lure gone. I then got 2 bass and while releaseing the second I notice the sounder was blank. Switched it back on and battery reading was 5.9 before it went blank again. (investigate today) So what do you do, I had a heap of lures to try further downstream but couldnt risk losing them. So I had some pots nearby and decided it was time for a shrimp session. Long story short managed 84 bass and one yella and when the MC started I had a small radio on and the rain decided to bucket down, I was trying to keep radio dry, the race had started and I was interrupted by 2 mongrel forkies.yes summer is officially here.Best part was when I got home there was plenty of leftovers from the party yummmmy. Dino
      10. Purple Magic

        I was lucky enough to have a ride in the red boat this morning with mate Glen. Purple lure worked its magic once again while trolling thank goodness as the jigging was a disaster. Also once again as we were ready to do some jigging up comes the wind. Managed a few dozen bass with the biggest around 50cm. Dino
      11. Borumba 29/10

      12. Borumba Ramp Improvements.

        After a visit to Borumba dam 2 weeks ago I wrote to SEQ water and Gympie council about a couple of problems. I have just heard back from SEQ water and the offending sign beside the ramp is in the process of being removed. There is going to be a dedicated disabled parking bay provided in the lower car park and compliance officers will also closely monitor the use of the short term parking area. Good outcome thank you SEQ water for a quick response. Cheers Ray
      13. Borumba Again

        Late start and early finish managed a few bass mainly small but one went 38 nice yella 45 a bit slow but some big toga starting smash the surface
      14. Lake K Disappointment

        Decided to see if the back could cope with a yak session this morning, well the back was ok but the knees are a bit shaky. Lake K was a big disappointment, only managed 3 tiny bass, I have never seen so much empty space on the sounder. When they cut a one meter gap in the wall I dont think they realised that after the last lot of rain the water was about 50cm over the wall, then when the water started going down it took a few days to get to the bottom of the big cut in the wall, result thousands of fish escaped through the gap. A lot of these fish died in the pool below the dam when the water flow stopped and the pool became stagnant. Its going to take a lot of stocking to make up the loss. Dino
      15. Fatso's From This Morning

        A few of the fatso's from the 83 bass this morning. Plus what my thumb looks like after. Dino
      16. 2 Days At Borumba

By the time we got there it was late Friday night and did not get a session in so had a counter tea at the pub. saturday morning was cold forgot warm cloths so I froze till the sun got up it was a slow day managed a couple of keepers a bass and a yella and a few small bass. the next day was not as cold and we started an hour later when we got to the boat ramp all parks were full because there was a Saratoga fly comp on. we headed down to yabba arm and slowly made our way down casting jackals and spiner baits to the steep bank on the left getting taps and some small bass as we got down further and in the timber things started to heat up at about 930 there was some movement on the surface and I got smashed by a good fish that I did not see took a lot of line and a jackal as a momento don't no what heart more loseing the fish with out seeing it our the lure. Not long after that the young fella was on same deal lost the fish with out an id then we saw the colpruts some big Saratoga breaking the surface . we fished to about12 and picked up a few more bass the headed home. had a great day on the lake with the young fella can't wait to get back up there I love borumba.
      17. Fresh Fish Finder Day

        Picked myself up a few fishfinders which I turned into a few dozen bass this morning, best fun I have had for ages. Dino
      18. Decky Number 2

        Back as a decky this morning and the fishing was slow again. I am on the verge of another bait session, as the bass are getting used to the lures again. They will soon depart from this area and either move out of our area or relocate at another spot.Thats usually the time to get the shrimp ready. Dino
      19. Dunno if Ray and Graham are enjoying it as much as I am ......
      20. 94 Not Out Pic Heavy

        Headed north this morning and found a nice puddle way down in a nice looking gully. Pushed off from the ramp and when I got to 16ft I stopped long enough to catch 30 bass on shrimp. I then trolled my way to my second spot where the bass went crazier, I was jigging bass that put some extreme hurt on my light jigging rods, several over 50cm models. Even the bass over 40cm had muscles in their shite. All up got 94 bass, trolling jigging and shrimp fishing and come home with a smile on my dial. Well I was hunted home when the wind turned nasty. Dino
      21. Somerset

        Went to Somerset today for the first time as usual were do you start at a new dam so spent most of the morning trolling deep divers with not much luck but could see a lot of fish schooling on the sounder. the young fella got a 45 cm yells up in the timber. looking around every one seems to be bait fishing ?
      22. 1st Time At Somerset

        Well went for a drive today to get boating permit for Somerset and then a look around at the boat ramps and camps ex we have never fished ther before and some info would be great iam not asking for hot spots but lures that I should take with us for trolling and casting any info would be great
      23. Yellow Morning

        Took one of my neighbors out with me yesterday morning, he wanted to see what I got up to out at the dam. We started off with a small accident before we even got moving, he leaned back to far and fell off his seat, result I had to find the bandaids for a gash to the leg, Half an hour later he done the same thing. We then headed to the first spot for some shrimp fishing where we picked up a few bass and I was lucky enough to catch 6 yellas in a row. We then headed off down the dam trolling on the way, picking up a couple more bass. We reached the popular trolling and jigging area of late, but as there was plenty of boats already there we opted to do a little more bait fishing. As the sun got warmer we headed for home. Hard to fish the way I usually do when showing a newbie around the numbers were not large, 25 bass and the 6 yellas. Dino
      24. Mongrel Morning

        It was blowing when I hit the water and only got worse as the morning wore on.I started trolling picking up a couple on the way. I then stopped and was into a few on shrimp before heading off down the dam again. I reached the bottom end the same time as a few others, it didnt take me long to realise that 3 boats trying to do the same trolling run with a strong breeze blowing just wouldnt work. So I headed for a bait fishing spot picking up quite a few more bass. I was going to rejoin the troll run when I noticed a kayak had joined in as well, so I headed off to another bait spot and got a few more bass and a small yella, before heading for home. 63 bass and the one yella from a mongrel morning, about 20+ were on lures. Back at the ramp I had to load and unload the boat 3 times to get it straight as the wind was that strong, pitty my back was that strong. Dino
      25. Ewan Maddock Dam

        Morning gang, So I was just having a look at the map for a place to spend an hour today on my way back from Nambour and I found Ewan Maddock Dam... After a little recon I found Maddock Park was a nice spot. BUT being SEQ Water a licence is required to fish (all for that as @rayke1938 gave me a good education in that all fees are put back into stocks). I don't want to do anything illegal or environmentally damaging but being just me and practicing catch and release and only for an hour (if I in fact am lucky enough to catch anything) would it be totally unconscionable for me to go? Putting this post online is silly and I know the answer but I'm a moral one. Otherwise maybe the Pine would be a better option (BUT I WANT BASS BEING OCTOBER HAHA). If I go the Pine could someone please pm me with a street for land based not too far from the Bruce? Thanks in advance!
