  1. Mondooran has been fishing really well lately by the looks of it if you're after barra.
  2. So you only catch table fish and only of legal size?
  3. John Costello was the original Jack guru but he has been killing it chasing flathead lately. His YouTube channel MyLureBox has some awesome stuff in it. I had a mate to to one of his jack seminars, said it was well worth the time.
  4. I only stumbled across Timmy Turtle last week, he's a bloody legend but he seems to mainly fish down south a bit further, more Currumbin area from what I can work out. I know he lives down that way. I was watching a YouTube video last night of someone fishing bear sanctuary cove somewhere getting harassed by security so I think most of those areas are private canals, unsure how much authority there is over it though. I'm hoping to get out in the Coomera on the kayak Saturday if conditions aren't too awful. I don't know enough to know how it'll effect the fishing but I'll be up near the weir end of Coomera river.
  5. If you're ever on the Gold Coast, Arundel bait and tackle sell them frozen. At least then you don't have to deal with the horrible spawns of Satan on the end of your line.
  6. Yeah as I gain a bit more confidence I'll head downstream. I just want to catch a jack before the season is done.
  7. I got my yak wet for the first time last Saturday morning in the Coomera and it was an awesome spot for it, perfect morning too. I launched from Brittany Reserve closer to the weir, followed the run out towards the M1 then back with the change of tide. Didn't catch anything because I'm a **** fisherman and was more preoccupied with not going in the drink but there was definitely fish around. Only problem could be with timing, the later it is the more watercraft out there. You're probably more confident out there than me though. Let me know how you go if you end up down here, would love to see some fish caught!

  9. I've been looking at the 4 piece raider rods too, they seem perfect to just leave in the car instead of having a two piece tied to my cargo carrier and always being mindful of it getting damaged. A hard case and small enough to chuck in a my drawers sounds perfect. Let us know how you like it!
  10. Just in time for the flathead classic next week. My boss was out there but they only got 7. He went to the seminar at Doug Burt's a couple of weeks ago and the flathead guru (forget his name) says most of the big lizards will be caught in that foot of water depth.
  11. It kinda sounds like you're trying to turn fishing into a computer game and I think you'll lose interest pretty quick if it isn't working, there's not really an 'aquire this, this and this and you catch this' play book. For the drone drop unless you plan to forever be dropping, then reeling in then dropping again (which sounds like more time setting up than with a line in the water) I think you'd be best off with bait.
  12. Some cracking fish in there! What was the biggest jack? Sorry to hear about your dad, hope he made a full recovery. Still looks like a great trip.
  13. Thanks for the tips guys, I think I'll go the cost effective mono route seeing how I don't do a lot of surf fishing, hopefully something's biting!
  14. Some great fish in there! Good to see plastics doing the job too, really seems to be a whole new breed of fishing.
  15. Instead of starting a new thread I may as well ask here; I'm going camping in Ballina next week and will be doing some beach fishing if all goes to plan. I've inherited a Okuma Salena sa65 that I'll use instead of buying something, just wondering what line people recommend for surf fishing? I believe there should be some tailor around, not sure what else could be around there.
