  1. I’m just sharing a step by step instructional video I created on the basics of bream fishing. I think many will find this helpful. In this instance, we are using live scrub worms to catch bream. We guide you through tackle and gear selection, rig setup, bait presentation then me and my kids catch a few bream on the Maribyrnong river. It’s a great video for beginners, or those looking for a few tips or those looking to take their kids fishing, especially during the school holidays. This same guide can be used for all different types of fish species such as trout, redfin, carp, bream, mullet, bass, perch, whiting and much more. It’s very simple and very effective all you need is a rod, reel, line, ball sinker, swivel, and hook and your all set. Make sure you sub the channel if you enjoy the video
  2. Video footage can be seen here - https://youtu.be/zeUwWHuPzkc I bet everyone has a cool story they can share about a good fish that they have recently lost. I just missed out on catching a very large trout today which I managed to capture on my GoPro. I cast my metal lure out and a few seconds later the trout hit it really hard. I battled it for a few minutes, with some intense moments as the trout continually leapt out of the water and then it finally spat the hook only meters away from me. I landed one about the same size last year which managed to get me on the cover of a fishing mag, Clearly, I was shattered. That feeling when you lose a big fish, and how you relive those last moments over and over in your head, and what you could have done differently. Again, I bet many here have great stories they can share. If you enjoy the video footage, then please subscribe to the channel
  3. Just sharing my latest video, a squid frenzy from last Sunday catching 20 squid in 30 minutes. The full video can be seen at https://youtu.be/kx6VUsAGumg if you enjoy the video then please subscribe to the channel We launch from Werribee boat ramp at 6.30am in glass like waters and red skies. We shoot across Port Phillip Bay to target squid. As soon as we started the action was frantic, and we landed our bag limit of calamari in just 30 minutes. We were using a range of squid jigs including Yamashita Live, Rui squid jigs & savage gear 3D shrimp. Using colours green, blue and black. Some caught working the fishing rod and some caught with the rod in the rod holder. Got inked a few times but it’s all good fun. My family enjoyed some fresh calamari this week. enjoy the video
  4. The video can be seen at https://youtu.be/xeQ8IarAFGQ - if you enjoy the video then please subscribe to the channel I’ve been getting asked a lot lately if Black soft plastics work so during the week I set out to conduct a short fishing challenge in Port Phillip Bay using only black soft plastics and had great results. We fished in Black Rock in a small runabout boat during high tide. Using only 5cm pro grubs in UV black with 1/8 jig heads we set ourselves 90 minutes to catch as many pinkies as we could. We caught plenty of pinkies and a couple of flatties.
  5. I think your 100% right a lot of people don't like to admit that they suffer from it. But it does cause the effects that you touched on, Thanks for your comments.
  6. Thanks for your response, yeah I didn't buy a boat or kayak for many years as I was too worried I wouldn't be able to enjoy them. With some good practices I have gotten a lot better. Which is good as I love boating so much. Thanks for your comments
  7. Yeah its not a pleasant thing to suffer from, bringing it up in topics like this may also help others who are suffering and also keen anglers. Thanks for your comments
  8. Thought others might find this amusing and interesting. I have been a long-time sufferer of seasickness. I’m always interested to know what others do to manage their own seasickness. I have added 2 links which might be helpful. The first is an article I have written about my own experiences to manage seasickness. The medications and remedies I’ve tried. What has and hasn’t worked. I have also added a short video clip on my latest trip ruined by seasickness. One short moment where I hold it together to catch a big squid knowing I was about to get sick. Article - https://fishingmad.com.au/article/seasickness Video Link - Appreciate ideas and feedback from others on how they manage their own seasickness.
  9. Video link - https://youtu.be/Lt5yVedNR8Y Sharing my latest fishing report/video. This one is a hilarious episode. A few of us headed up towards Campbells cove on the runabout boat targeting squid. What starts of as some light hearted humour turns into a funny sledging competition to see who can catch the most squid. We have all been there before one person is catching everything whilst the others are getting doughnuts. Thankfully on this occasion it was my turn to catch a few and as a good mate, I went out of my way to turn the sledging up to high. It’s a great video, lots of squid being caught and lots of laughs between good mates. And yes only 14 squid kept between 3 people on board which is well within legal catch limits, with plenty of squid returned to the water.
  10. was really shallow only fishing between 1.5 and 3 meters deep.Sandy bottom with big rocks.
  11. Video link - Sharing my latest fishing video. This one is completely insane and must watch viewing for local anglers. We launch from Altona boat ramp and immediately find ourselves within the biggest school of salmon that I have ever seen. Its complete chaos, a massive bust up with salmon surfacing everywhere. We’re catching big salmon nearly every cast. Its nonstop fishing action. We were just flicking soft plastics curl tail and minnow imitations on a 1/8 jog head, but I reckon the salmon would have taken anything. Enjoy the video it’s a ripper, and please subscribe to the channel.
  12. Hi John, Thanks for the positive comments. Yeah has taken a year or two to start working out how to make the videos look good and interesting. The braid I'm using is this one https://www.bcf.com.au/p/savage-hd8-silencer-orange-braid-line-120m-8.2lb/529169.html
  13. Thought I’d share my latest fishing video - https://youtu.be/Jh53YfaS9lw I team up with Rob Kriz from Robs fishing adventures and we have an amazing fishing session on Port Phillip bay around Black Rock. We launch from Altona in some choppy conditions and eventually anchor in Black Rock after coming across a nice school in the Simrad sounder. Thankfully the wind and swell calms down and the fishing action is frantic as we catch heaps of good size pinkies, snook, whiting, and then finally into a school of big salmon. There's no better way to break the new Savage Gear 1DFR rods. Gear used Savage Gear 1DFR 3-5k inshore rod, Stealth 2000, 9.3 Adrenaline braid, Fat Curl tail soft plastics in motor oil which was a deadly combination for the day. If you enjoy the video then please sub the channel. Regard Al - FishingMad
  14. Thought I’d share my latest video a 20-minute special on how to CATCH, CLEAN & COOK squid. Video can be seen here - https://youtu.be/8vGvxUImbRw On the weekend we launched from Altona and headed to shallow water around 4m deep and drifted around. Using a range of different squid jigs. ( 2.5g black and 3 gram UV white ) we catch our bag limit of squid. At which time we capture this footage and share some tips on targeting squid. We then take the squid home and show you how to clean and cook. I made this video after receiving messages from followers asking for advice on this exact topic. This video highlights that even kids can catch squid and prepare a great meal. Enjoy the video, I hope these tips help you and remember to sub the channel.
  15. Agreed, my 2 fav eating things from the bay
