  1. I know growing up the older fisherman would commonly say a cold snap turns the bite off. I guess not fighting could be followed by not feeding at all?
  2. Managed only one last night land based in Redcliffe. Hope more arrive soon.
  3. Went for a land based session with a mate yesterday evening in Redcliffe. Had to take advantage of the weather, wind and tide. Would have taken the tinnie out but with a curfew placed on my mate we had to maximize fishing time. Within 10 minutes of arriving I had missed a run and then my mate reeled in a decent 40cm Tailor. We got our hopes up for a solid Tailor session. What actually followed was an on/off patchy bite of mainly flathead. The best two going mid fifties. Nice and plump fish but the laziest fighters I have ever come across! Bait was a mix of prawns and pilchards. Hope more Tailor arrive in the bay soon.
  4. Thanks for the notice. Sad news. I would frequent that store on my way to the pine or redcliffe. Then grab a coffee and sandwiches next door. Hope another tackle shop ends up there.
  5. Only been out twice unfortunately, with the first trip resulting in undersized fish only. Second trip described in the recent "pidgeon pair from the pine" post.
  6. Just pm'd you. Just realized I never posted a final pic.
  7. Photoshop is a wonderful package!!
  8. As usual its been a while between posts for me. I hadn't been out in the boat since last year! I managed to get my newly serviced tinny (with new thermostat ) out to the Pine River a few days back, on a solo trip, and managed to land some hard-fought dinner. I started the trip by motoring towards the mouth from the deep water bend boat ramp, sounding at a few not-secret-at-all spots but not getting many returns on the Lowrance display. I fluked the tide at the shallow section between the green-red-green markers just south of Dolyes Rocks, which is getting less passable every trip I make to the Pine!? A mate of mine is a Hydrographic Surveyor for the QLD gov, which incidentally doesn't service the Pine, and his thoughts are the Port of Brisbane is saving $$$ by reducing frequency or not dredging some channels anymore. Long story short, after an hour or so I finished fishing the far-lower reaches with a donut, on both bait and lure. Bad start but not unusual in my experience in this river. The trend almost continued when I headed upstream to the Bruce HWY bridge and wrecks just west of it. I managed a couple of small bream on prawns. So I ventured further upstream as the tide was nearing high, anchoring on a bend and immediately landed plenty of small bream and flathead on prawns. Only when I through a lure did I manage a keeper - on first cast... 10 minutes later, a few more tiddlers on bait followed by... ...and 'NO' it's not the same fish photographed later! Stuck around for 30 mins until high tide, then decided to leave with just enough flatty tails for the family for dinner that night. Hard work but worth the trip.
  9. Great to meet you Wayne. Thanks for the top deal. I'll be sure to put it to good use.
  10. Hi can I pick up after work tomorrow? Understand you may find a buyer in between that time. How do I PM?
  11. Is this still available?

    Well done on getting out there Pat, and on the shark catch. I didn't manage to get out Sunday.
