  1. Good luck fishing mate. Looks like your wife already got her catch
  2. So I may be a bit behind the 8 ball but where is 1770? Is it a reef?
  3. I have had so many different jobs over my life man. Umm the job I actually cared about was probably camp manager for a mining site. At the moment I'm just a forklift driver for coca cola but that is definitely coming to an end. I've also made wine, worked security, managed retail stores, labourer, worked at seaworld and heaps more. I am after a career though at some stages. Very sick of working jobs where you can't move up.
  4. What an amazing post. Thanks for the tips I'm going to try some of those locations. I might try some land based first then onto mud Island when I can actually get the boat out. You're a champion thank you
  5. Hey guys, sorry about the lack of posts I got a bit overwhelmed with the last one I was supposed to do and didn't end up doing it lol. Been pretty average lately and haven't even taken the boat out but hopefully that will change. Looks like I have to find work in the next two weeks as I will be getting the flick from here. Anyway back on topic, I was wondering if anyone knew any good squid spots by boat or land, it doesn't really matter. Also whats the most popular size, style and colour of squid Jig to use. Anyway I better get back to work. If anyone knows of any work around Brisbane let me know. Cheers Jordan
  6. I've already been. I will put up a report tomorrow. I can definitely say that 50km winds are not as fun as they sound. I will remember this for next time though. I just caught heaps of herring which don't live that long.
  7. I was thinking about chasing some mud crabs but I only have limited freezer space and they aren't girls favourite food. I love them though. I definitely want to catch more cod that's for sure. So tasty
  8. Yeah I'm pretty unsure what to do. I think this wind is going to stuff me up but if I can hold on till the next morning it should be good fishing. I'm actually trying to target anything big.and tasty. Apparently there is some wreck in the bay I might check that out.... Or I might just go to jacobs well lol. Might just be easier
  9. Good morning guys, I finished work this morning and have had a couple, but I'm thinking about taking my boat out and sleeping on it for the night tomorrow night. I've recently just brought an underwater light to attract bait/squid but I'm so torn on where to go. Last time I went out I hit up jacobs well and had a lot of success. I was thinking about doing the same again and testing out this new light, with the hope of a jew fish... But I'm also thinking I could go out tomorrow during the day and sleep in horse shoe bay but have my light on to attract squid near the western side rocks. Then once it hits an hour or two before high tide maybe hit up a reef or something. I don't know what is going well in the bay at the moment. All I know is that it's never as productive as I think it's going to be. Anyway I know the wind my be an issue at points but I suppose what I'm really after is someone to tell me where to go. High tide is during the night and just on sunrise so I probably need to figure out what I should do. I'm unsure where to catch live bait in the bay but I know plenty of places in jacobs well. All suggestions welcome guys. Hope everyone is having a good day Cheers Jordan
  10. So I grilled the cod up that night. All I can say is that I want to catch 2 decent size so I have a couple of fillets for the freezer. Words can't describe how amazing it tasted with just butter oil salt pepper garlic and fresh parsley and lemon. I want more
  11. I think I might give this a shot next week. I have never caught a jew before
