  2. went for a fish out near pinkenba this morning. struggled with bait only catching undersized bream and a ray. tried with a sp and hooked this cod first cast. wondering what species it is? Im guessing a black cod. all fish were released
  3. haha yes looking at that photo it does look a little precarious. was my first shark so was trying my hardest to stay away from that mouth. definately keen to catch more sharks now after the way that little fella fought
  4. headed out to redcliffe for the first time hoping to chase some squire and bream. launched around 5.30 and headed to some rocks. i was trying out one of those snapper flasher rigs with some squid. after a few minutes line started peeling off. then i saw the fish jumping and realised it was a shark. did quite a few jumps and put up a solid fight. I think i was lucky to land it with no trace. was only small but my first shark and a surprise. sorry for the average photos. shouldnt let the old man be in charge of the camera. shortly after that my brothers line started to go and he thought he was onto a shark too but it stayed down low and he pulled in a nice snap in the high 40\'s. we were starting to think its gonna be a good day. the bite went quiet so moved to some other rocks and pulled in a little bream on a rod i\'d found after getting snagged in somerset dam. unfortunately i snapped that rod later in the day but at least it got 1 fish for me then we managed to pull in a couple of moses perch. one around 27 and one much smaller. another great photo haha started to get pretty choppy so we called it. all in all a good day. took the snap home for a feed and realeased everything else. also caught this shovel nose ray in the brissie river the other day so there has been a bit of variety which is always good. cheers Lachlan

    Scarborough .

    nice flatty. went out off margate beach this morning and caught a small black tip reef shark, a decent snapper, few small moses and a little bream. will throw up some pics soon. got a little choppy out there mid morning cheers Lachlan
  6. Thanks for the replies. that map is great. will chuck up a report if i do any good (unlikely)
  7. Hi there, Thinking of launching the boat at woody point this weekend to chase some squire or whatever. Havent fished there since i was a kid. I have a river to reef book which shows a green zone near the jetty. is there a decent map online that shows the boundaries? Thinking it might be better to head up a little further past margate and fish near the redcliffe jetty. Definately dont want to accidentally fish a green zone. any help or advice much appreciated, Lachlan
  8. if you dont mind what type of fish you want to catch just get some prawns or mullet from the caltex servo near the jindalee bowls club. you will catch plenty of catfish near the jindalee boat ramp, and there are bull sharks around too
  9. thanks guys. Wellsys looks pretty good
  10. Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on where to get decent skirted lures for a decent price. not looking for anything too big but have the a fan of these types of lures when trolling for small pelagics cheers, Lachlan
  11. haha yeah those hippos sure are scary
  12. hi all, for the last 3 months i have been lucky enough to visit the missus family in tanzania, east africa. also it turned out lucky because her cousins are keen fishos. anyway we started out in southern tanzania fishing some rivers. we hoped to get a tiger fish but i think we were a little early in the season. we had a beautiful spot but got moved along when a herd of elephants decided they wanted to drink there. the next spot was full of hipppos which was pretty scary but we got some decent catfish. i had never eaten them before but they werent too bad we also caught a bunch of these small red robbers. cooked them up in a nice curry sauce after that we went out to pangani beach and headed offshore. first session out we hit the close in reefs and caught a few small trev's on squids. also speared one goatfish. next day headed out deep and saw a bunch of birds. saw a big kingie jumping and eventually found a bust up of yellow fin. unfortunately we couldnt get close enough to get a good cast in. then found a school of rainbow runners. good good casts into them but couldnt manage a hook up. eventually decided to head back and came across a local net fisherman who had a decent kingie. we bought it for lunch for about $12 and of course as soon as we did a nice trev hit the rapala. at least we didnt go home empty handed. next arvo hit the reefs again with a few beers and got the best gt of the trip. then pulled in another to finish of a good few days. not a lot of variety but good times and nice fish all in all also got to see turtles hatching which was nice. cheers, lachlan

    Fishing in USA

    I spent a fair bit of time living in Idaho, about 5 hours drive from seattle. Caught a lot of Steelhead and salmon in Lewiston. License cost $30 for 3 days or around 100 for the year if I remember correctly. The river there was never too busy and we always bagged out. unfortunately you cant keep the salmon but can keep any hatchery steelhead and they taste great and get quite big. Just have to make sure you are there when they are on their run. we trolled for them in a little tinny with flashing lures. pretty simple. usually went from around 8pm til 3am. also riggins idaho is great for land based fishing for them. And there are plenty of charters around. Also some great lakes north of idaho in canada. Great fishing there too
