  1. What is the fishing like at Hastings point this time of year. Going down in two weeks..I will take the Kayak as well..Cheers
  2. Has anyone fished the Wivenhoe dam lately. Gonna give it a hit in a couple of weeks..Cheers

    1. Hey Drop Bear. Mate after years in the catering game and Whiting Caprice as a regular menu item people enjoyed the banana and the fish taste together. Have a crack at it mate..
    2. This recipe I used back in my Chef days. You need a Whiting fillet ,flour, bread crumbs, banana and egg wash. Method.. Slice banana in half and place it on the skinless side of the whiting fillet. Coat with flour then place in the egg wash which is a couple of eggs mixed together with a drop of milk added to the eggs. After placing in the egg wash transfer to the bread crumbs with a generous coating then fry in oil of your preference so the fillet is just submerged under the oil. Garnish your plate then drain whiting for a minute then plate up with lemon and a sprinkle of Paprika..Bon Appetito
    3. Gidday all. Have not been around for a while as I had a mild heart attack and had a stent fitted. Thought I was a fit 66 year old but alas it must have been the four foot bull shark that got my heart pumping to quick and the end result of it breaking the trace. I hope to get back to the fishing scene soon..Cheers all 

      1. Gidday Nog. Mate we were up there just before the Australia day weekend for a week and fished the beach and kayaked up the theolodite creek and fished with bait ,lures and soft plastics and did not see a fish up there. The beach was fishing okay on incoming but it was a pretty poor week..I've caught more fish in the Logan river.
      2. Hey there Drop bear.. Yes mate small Spaniard they were feeding just off the beach while the bigger ones were just out of casting distance which is the norm for me. We released all the small ones but there was plenty of nice Dart but the river and creeks were not fishing at all.
      3. Fished Woodgate couple of weeks ago for a week but the fishing was lousy. Few Dart off the beach with flathead and a few small Jack in the Theolodite creek after Kayaking up and down with lures and floppies.Very baron..
      4. Fished Woodgate but not much around. Dart, small Spaniards and flathead. Kayaked up the Theolodite creek and a few small Jack but very quiet. Lot of throw backs...

        1. I have been getting a few of these Jew type fish in the Logan whilst waiting for a shark hit. I think they are called Yellow Jew. Does anybody know?...

            looks like a scaly jew, common in the gulf and we occasionally catch small ones in Cairns:

            Thanks for the reply. It looks like they are Scaly Jew. I just came back from fishing at Woodgate and asked around as they catch them there and they referred to them as Scalies. Cheers 

        2. Anybody  fished at Woodgate south of Bundaberg, going there in two weeks and never been there. What is the fishing like?..

          1. Has anyone fished up around Woodgate just South of Bundy. Going in one week and never fished there. Taking Kayak and Diving gear.
          2. This area is down past the Gem hotel about 6 ks and it is a man made rockwall. If you can put up with the tide and snags I have also caught beeam and jewies there. Good luck.
          3. Thanks Ray. I should have posted not to use Tilapia as after speaking to Fisheries I dont use it now but have substituted it with eel fillets..
          4. For live bait I use cat fish up to 8 inches in length or Tilapia. Never fails me. Fish the last couple of hours of the incoming tide...
