  1. Well done for getting the boys onto some fish mate. Looks like the little bloke had a ball !
  2. Hi logo, It depends on where you live, the hard part for a nine year old would be getting to fishy spots. If your parents are willing to drive you to places like Sandgate they are lots of options for land based fishing. You can walk for miles over there throwing lures out for flathead. I know when I was nine I'd ride my bike down to the local creek and chase yellowbelly and catfish with my mates. If you have any freshwater creeks or lakes close by you could chase bass or even tilapia using bait. It depends on what sort of fishing you want to do and what type of gear you have.
  3. Quite a few up this way as well. It's amazing where you can find them...if you wake up early enough that is.
  4. For the sake of your back perhaps you should only target spanglies and garfish for a while.
  5. Nice toga mate, I bet that made you smile.
  6. I wanted a nice easy fishing session so I grabbed a 7ft 1-3 Kg noodle rod and a handful of lures and headed over to Redcliffe. After the crazy weather the night before I didn't know what to expect. The first spot was a bit grubby with a lot of floating bit's and pieces and no bites so back in the car and off to check out some other normally fishy locations. The front of Redcliffe was just awesome with nice calm conditions and the water beautiful and warm. I strolled along a stretch of beach with some plastics and picked up two little tackers then walked back along the same stretch with a hard bodied lure. This got me another three flathead, one long tom and a dropped silver thingy that decided to spit the lure. The only down side, although not that bad is a lot of people walk along the front and every time you hook a fish they want to have a chat and ask "what else do you catch here" ? At least I get to test out my fishermans stories on them !
  7. Will you be flicking around the pontoons or just off the bank ? There's honestly a million lures to choose from but I'll tell you a few that I use right now that will produce if used correctly. Plastics, Squidgee Biotough Wriggler 120mm ( Flathead ) Zman 4" Streakz ( Flathead ) Zman 2" Grubz ( Bream ) Holt Productions Swim Prawn 3" ( Anything that swims will attack it, but they are hard to get ) Hard body lures Atomic Hardz Crank, mid and deep ( Bream ) River2Sea bubble pop 45 in any clear colour ( Bream ) Atomic Shiners in mid and deep 70mm - 100mm ( Flathead ) If you want to spend some coin you can go for things like Daiwa double Clutches and Bassday Sugar deeps but it can get a bit pricey casting them around snags. If you only wanted to grab a couple to start off I'd go one packet of Zman 2" grubs and one Atomic Hardz cranks deep. You'd get change out of $30 and most fish would happily belt them. Good luck.
  8. Just a heads up mate. This could be a very minor set back in your modelling career.
  9. With enough seafood sauce you can eat anything.
  10. I have some new prawn style plastics to try this weekend. Could be interesting.
  11. Thanks for sharing that Ray, it was great seeing the city way back when. I love the way the gents spoke back then. Like they sucked on helium and spoke veddy veddy proper Queens english.
  12. Always good and bad when they school. On one hand when it gets colder they get fat and powerful but then we lose the fun edge bite.
  13. Thanks mate, I start off using a lightish plastic on a beetlespin. Pumpkin or watermelon Zman curly tails on a 1/6 or 1/4 ounce jighead. These are easy to swim across the weed. As the sun comes up they move out a bit and I switch to a Sebile Swim Shad on a beetlespin that once again swims over the weed. When it's full sun I tie on things like heavier lipless crankbaits and sometimes blades to get distance. In a few months I'll probably use something completley different.
