      1. Hi All, I'm Glenn, my youngest son and I have been getting into fishing lately (I fished a fair bit about 20-odd years ago). We have a couple of decent rods and some gear from family members. It is such a great way to get outside, (and get the young ones of their tablets and xbox!) and enjoy some time together. I have been looking around this forum and it seems like a really good place! Plenty of advice and good vibes. The young fella caught his first fish the other day, nice little winter whiting He was so excited and he is now 'hooked'! Anyway, I will probably be hanging around here a bit. Happy for any advice, tips etc on how to maximise the fun times fishing! Regards, Glenn
      2. Hi looking for some advice want to chase snapper out of my yak around Redcliffe-Scarborough. I’ve tried land based off Shiels street and now have a small yak to use. What r the best times, spots etc.....
      3. Gday all, I’m new to the site so doing the norm and introducing myself. I’m Hatchy from the Sunshine Coast. I’ve just got the fishing bug back. Originally from Tas and was quite spoilt for choice down there. Since moving back to qld for the 2nd time, I’ve noticed how slow the fishing really is here. Don’t get me wrong there’s times where it is quite good. I’m chasing some advice or tips on catching more fish on lures and some local spots I’ve got a couple of fish on lures. I have no problem catching fish on bait and can 99% of the time catch fish using bait. But now have moved to lures, I prefer hard body’s to plastics. I’ve caught a few fish trolling with some shallow divers, and some plastics but I want to increase my chances in the yak. I’ll give any where a go as long as I’m not dealing with too many boats and jet skis. I don’t have a sounder yet and partner she has a better kayak then me, my kayak sucks in any kind of wake. So until I upgrade I don’t want to venture into any large body of water that is open to the elements. I don’t need any x spots but just some advice on where I can increase my chance of getting some larger fish other than bream. I know being winter the variety of fish is some what limited but not totally, as my partner caught a 300mm jack before landing a 410mm bream. Kind regards Hatchy
      4. Hey guys. New to the group. Was fishing buffalo beach last weekend and met a cool guy fishing for sambo and got a few too.

Anyway guys happy to learn and share info with ye. Sorry in advance for stupid questions lol Tight lines
      5. Hi all, Just joined. Based on Brisbane Northside. Just sold a 35 foot flybridge cruiser (thank goodness - never again) and have ordered a Stejcraft ss64. Not sure of delivery date yet but probably within two months. I am looking for a group/club interested in fishing Moreton Bay, or any tips/spots etc. Although I have been fishing the bay for close on forty years I now have more time on my hands, and intend to spend much more time out there.
      6. Hello All, I am a new member from north side of Brisbane. I regularly fish in bay, the Bribie passage, around Moreton Island, Redcliffe, Scarborough, Woody Point, The Pine as well as waters around Elliott Heads. Looking forward to trading fishing and boating tips. TS
      7. Hi All, Getting back into fishing more regularly after kids. Mostly hitting up the freshwater lakes around Canberra, with mixed results. I just found the forum today so I thought I'd join up. No boat at the moment (1st boat went to help buy the house), but hoping to get another in the next couple of years.
      8. Hi everyone, My son has convinced me to join up and check out all of the posts. Have to say while I don't mind throwing the line in I'm happy to paddle the young fella around in our kayak and watch him catch all the fish! Cheers Cavvy P.S. You guys know Hamish right
      9. 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
      10. Hi all I’m just getting back into fishing after an approximate 10 years in a different hobby. I’ve picked myself up a good used Savage 450, & here in Qld we can go fishing. I’ve already done one trip to my favourite whiting spot, but I’m keen to get amongst some Brissy River Threadies, & some nice Bay Snapper.
      11. Hi all, New to the forum and pretty fresh when it comes to fishing. Located in Brisbane and currently focused on land based angling. Cheers, Simmo.
      12. Hi All, New here, want to know if anyone here can help me out with a few spots to up Donnybrook/Toorbul way to wet a line..Just fishing off the banks for now. Thanks..
      13. Live in Western Sydney at Windsor. Do most of my fishing down the NSW south coast around Sussex Inlet. My brother has a place down there and it is beautiful and great fishing everywhere. I've just started back into fishing as a recreational hobby after years away and have tried surf, estuary and river fishing with a little boat action thrown in for good measure. I just like the relaxing sessions on my own as well as the good old mates in a boat adventure when I can scrape some people together. I'm building my depleted tackle box slowly and am surprised how much things have changed with graphite rods and multi bearing reels, its a whole new ballgame. It puts my old Alvey to shame I think. Anyway, hope to pick up some tips and help from you friendly anglers and hope my questions aren't too silly to warrant answers. Cheers and all the best, Gluggy
      14. Hey everyone. New to the site and slowly trying to figure out how to catch a fish or two. Nestled in a small village on the Bidgie just out of Wagga. Love to hit the coast and chase the lizards around. Just like everyone, I dont get out enough. I look forward to gaining knowledge from everyone and bounce ideas around
      15. ...and things are a bit different up here! I've been fishing since before I can remember and in tassie I know what to do, where to go ect. But up here I'm struggling a little. First of all I don't know anyone up here who fishes so I'm stuck land based til I make friends with someone who is kind enough to take me out on the water (or til my living situation is stable enough to get a craft of my own) secondly, learning the best way to target new species, though it's very interesting and exciting can be very frustrating with little to no experience or know-how apart from what little useful information I can find by googling. Had a few days up at bundaberg and fished around Burnett and Elliot heads but I've mostly been going land based all around redcliffe. Got smoked by something huge I sight casted at the entrance to the Scarborough marina. Won't get over that one for a while. Got a few grassy sweetlip and a few decent sized bream and a small snapper off queens beach. Few shovel noses and stingrays. Some weird little aquarium looking fish from under woody point jetty. Up at bundaberg did some surf fishing got some swallowtail dart and a little GT and a big slatey bream. I plan to do a lot more fishing on Morton bay in the next couple years so I'd love to meet some people who could share some wisdom with me or even take me for a fish sometime. If any of you find a reason to go to Tasmania hit me up and I'll direct you to some wild brown trout! Cheers take it easy

        Hi Fishos, New to this forum. Been living in the territory chasing Barra the last 4 years and have now moved to Mackay QLD with my family. Looking forward to doing some exploring on foot and in my boat. Dont know anyone here so if you live up this way give me a shout and maybe hook up for a fish. Cheers Edo
      19. Hello everyone and thank you to the admins for allowing me to join this group. I'm a female angler who absolutely loves my fishing. These days it's lures only for me, and I haven't used bait in a few decades now. I'm looking forward to learning a heap of new techniques to try out from some of the members of this group. I fish both landbased, and a boat. I'll keep this introduction short, as I'm sure I will contribute more at a future time. Thank you

      21. Im currently traveling Australia in a van with my wife and young fella. Been on the road for 2 years. I enjoy trying out as many different styles of Aussie fishing as I can, which means im below average at chasing lots of different species using lots of different techniques. Potentially very exciting change coming up for us and will need the help for this forum. More later. Cheers
      22. Hi all, new here! Grew up fishing the Noosa river with my younger brother, 15-20 years later we have just bought a bigger tinny than the 11ft x 6hp we used to strap around in. We keep the boat at his place in Noosa but I live in Brisbane and I'm keen to get into the bay to chase some pelagics or the river for some salmon or jewies, typically I always use lures but i'll never say no to a live bait session. Any tips or tricks you can share will be much appreciated, particularly how far into the bay we would have to venture to chase decent fish will be handy. 4.2m Stacer x 30hp Yamaha - Lures - Brisbane - Noosa
      23. Hello folks, I haven't fished much since we moved down from the Gulf about thirty years ago and, due to circumstances, have ended up at Bargara near Bundaberg. Wonderful place to live and I would like to get out and about a bit and get back into fishing. Some interesting looking water with plenty of rocks and a couple of nice beaches a five minute bike ride from our house . . . but I never see anyone fishing. I have a recumbent delta trike and can access the coast along the bikeways right up through Mon Repos. Due to the onset of age an occasional sunrise session on a nice firm beach (rather then rocks) would be magic. The problem is I have never beach fished much and everyone I ask reckons I would be wasting my time. I would appreciate any advise or comment. Cheers.

        Hi everyone I'm a newbie just signed up, my username is Oldie. That just about sums me up. These days due to health issues I can only fish easy accessible areas and mostly target the old mud marlin on light gear. K
