  1. Hi everyone. Having a good time up here in FNQ. Got these couple of beauties whilst at Sth Mission Beach. Picked up a few School and Spotted Mackerel as well. We're off to Taylors Beach on Saturday having it being recommended to us by another fisho we met at Groper Creek. I've had a bit of a look on the web and searched the forums here but can't find a whole lot of info on the place. Was wondering if anybody can give me any general info and tell me what the target species are down that way (3.7m tinnie, so not going out to the reef). Also, can you pump yabbies in the area. Cheers
  2. Home/work was in Canberra but since retirement in 2017, the house is rented out and we're on the lookout for somewhere on the coast to settle when we're finished travelling. We've got a 15hp Yammy 2 stroke on the tinnie. It goes well with just the 2 onboard. Can plane with 3 adults but won't do it with 4 adults. Not a problem because its usually just the 2 of us, or occasionally a third. The 3.7HS is a great boat and well regarded among the tinnie travelling set. IMO the additional 75mm all round and the higher transom gives that little bit more security when in croc waters. You'll love Cape York (next year). We did it in 2018, albeit without a boat at the time. We did do a charter out of Weipa and had a ball.
  3. Cheers mate. I've got the odd photo and have written up a couple of reports for a FB group I'm in (Travelling Oz with a Tinnie). Ill post something up shortly.
  4. Gday Mark. I've just joined the forum and read your post as we're thinking of heading up to Evans Head when (and if) these bloody travel restrictions are lifted. Hopefully there'll still be some fish around come June. Did you stay at the Reflections park?
  5. Hi all. Looking forward to having a chat on here, getting some advice and also sharing some of my knowledge and experiences. My wife (Wendy) and I are young(ish) Grey Nomads and have been travelling Oz for the past 3 years. Sadly, at the moment we've run aground in Canberra and are waiting eagerly for the go ahead to get on the move again. We travel with a 21' caravan and a dual cab ute with a Seajay Nomad 3.7HS on the roof. We're both keen fishers and generally plan our travels around where we can get out for a fish. Our favourite spots to date have been Tuross Lake (NSW), Mallacoota (Vic), Venus and Streaky Bays (SA) Bunbury, Forty Mile Beach, Cleaverville and Cape Leveque (WA), Alva beach and Agnes Water (Qld) and finally, Dunnally Bay and Mayfield Bay (Tas). Cheers Davo
