      2. This monster land based snapper was picked up but the Victorian Fisheries Authority. Promoting what can be caught land based in Victoria this snapper season. The video was from Fishing Frenzy and you can check him out by follow the link on his name that will take you to his you tube channel. I have been a bit busy the last few months with new gear and trying to keep up with orders on our existing stock so I apologize for not keeping up to date here. Here is the edited version of Fishing Frenzy's catch with out the show and tell of our rigs and the bit of language of the 6 minute fight. It is well worth checking out his full vid which is in this link here Below is the edited one from VFA. You can check out my hand made gear that this was caught with on my site https://bettertackle.com. Will be also posting a article later this week I have been working on which is jam packed with some good info for all us fisho's. Enjoy fisho's and tight lines
      3. g'day everyone ive just recently gotten into fishing as a way to get out of the house while im out of work and im looking for good land based spots to fish in and around the north pine river, ive no specific fish in mind to target as i just enjoy catching them then letting them go. any advice for some good spots would be much obliged. cheers sam
      4. August is always a pretty good month to chase sand whiting at many locations around Moreton Bay and there have been a few fish nosing about the Southport Broadwater for me landbased after work for a couple of nights this week. Nothing over 40 cm so far, but a couple of reasonable fish. Bait choice hasn't seemed to make much difference with fish being caught on yabbies, surf worms and Cribb Island worms. Light leads (00 or 000) in less than a metre of water has been the go. These were caught from the beaches at Runaway Bay.
      5. Hi All, Heading to Broome tomorrow (29AUG to 06SEP) so hoping for some land-based fishing tips. Disappointing to hear only 180m of the 640m of the jetty boardwalk is accessible now as I do not have access to a 4WD. Not targeting anything specific just hoping to get out for a fish. Family holiday with a young toddler so hoping to make the most of the limited time fishing I can sneak in. Good fishing spots (?): The Jetty Entrance Point Rocks near the Fishing Club Town Beach Boat Ramp Rock Groyne Gantheaum Point Rocks Cable Beach North of the Rocks Gear I’m taking: 15kg travel rod 5kg travel rod 40-pound hand reel 200-pound hand reel Hoping for any tips or pointers for any of the fishing locations such as suggested bait, recommended lures, best tides (slack water top of the tide?) etc. Thanks in advance.
      6. Belated report from our trip to Pottsville over the middle weekend of the holidays just gone. Was our first trip with our new (to us) Trackabout Safari camper trailer - worked really well and we love it. Had a bit of rain and found there's one small section of the zip seam about the entrance that leaks slightly so we'll sort that out with some water proof spray. It was our first time there and we loved it, will definitely be back. Our camp spot was right on the water so was perfect for the boys to go and explore - and me once I'd had my coffee ..... On the first arvo I walked over the bridge and saw a HUGE school of sea mullet going under the bridge. I reckon there could have been in excess of 1000 fish flow through under the bridge. They were milling around here and there for the rest of our stay - they certainly knew you weren't allowed to throw a castnet at them ..... The boys gathered up some fish frames from the beach on the first arvo which included a very, very solid 43cm bream, so hopes were high but we couldn't manage any legal bream, surprisingly. I got a 37cm whiting that I sight cast to right up in the shallows - a very rewarding capture. Quite a skinny fish though unfortunately. Also got a 50cm flattie on a hard bodied lure and my wife got a decent dart off the beach down at Black Rock - we did an arvo session with my wife chasing dart with pippies whilst I threw out a pillie in hopes of some tailor but no luck. I went back the next morning but no luck again - packed the lighter set up with plans to chase dart insted there were no tailor around but forgot the bucket of leftover yabbies and couldn't find any pippies to use pieces of pillie for one hookup which dropped off and apart from that a few bites but hard to hook up to. We also saw some very active whales breaching when we went for a walk on the beach - very cool! I enjoyed watching the locals fishing for mullet with their quill floats and dough, always good to see a different technique that you don't use yourself. Oh and for anyone going there, there are yabbies on both sides of the creek and I heard on the day we left that there is a much more plentiful yabby bank just past the second bridge (opposite Black Rock).
      7. I haven't been able to get out much over the last few months for a fish, but found some time to chase a land based feed at Point Halloran on Friday night. The bites were fairly steady during the tide cycle with the exception of the usual lull around the top of the tide. We ended up with a good mixed bag with some nice fish in the mix (only the best of each species are in the photo). Yabbies and worms accounted for the whiting and bream and small blue pilchards for the tailor and flathead. It was a good haul overall. We backed up for a session the next night at Sandgate. The wind proved to be a problem early, but we still managed to add a few more tailor and bream to the weekend's catch. Not much size to the tailor at Sandgate on this occasion.
      8. Hi All, Long time no post for me - have been living in Singapore for the last 3.5 years but got over it because the fishing is terrible. Was time to take a pay cut and move back to Aus and fortunate enough to get a job back home in Cairns. Been back two months and hitting the beaches for the spring salmon run; found the key is reasonable sized live mullet late afternoon and wearing my lucky fishing t-shirt (seem to catch only sharks if not wearing the brown shirt with a shark on it). The odd barra (just before closed season but released anyway - I'll wait for February to take one home) and queenfish has been in the mix, plus a couple of spoolings on unknowns. Looking forward to two weeks off at Christmas when there should be some big king salmon lurking at night. Here's a few recent fish. 2.mp4 3.mp4 4.mp4 6.mp4
      9. Hey All, I just moved up from Sydney to Victoria Point and keen to unpack the gear and get back into fishing, back in Sydney I mostly fished fresh water but grew up fishing salt and wondering if anyone can give me any tips on local areas where i can start exploring all a meet up to tag along. I have only fished with lures over the years and been itching over the last 10 days to get back on the water as use to fish every day back in SYD. I have a kayak as well but no boat ATM. Thanks Bryce
      10. Hey guys just wondering if anybody knows how deep it is off the beach around queens beach. Looking at going fishing around there sometime soon thanks
      11. Hi guys just wondering if anyones had any luck around redcliffe for snapper off land I went out today off a rockwall close to the jetty but had no luck alot of locals say night time is better but i couldnt cast far enough i had 2 rods out a baitrunner paired with a shimano triton 6-10kg rod and a strikerunner on a 12 ft rod both reels spooled with 20lb line and really long leaders roughly a metre-metre half to 2 snelled 4/0 baitholder hooks had a 4 sinker down to a swivel on the surf rod and the same rig on the 7ft just a lighter sink i had whole pillies and mullet slabs for bait just wondering if my leader was to long for casting or baits to heavy Apparently the location is very good at timea for a range of species but im looking to catch snapper,squire or sweet lip
      12. Hi guys just after some advice on land based spots in the sunny coast to catch snapper hoping to stay overnight
      13. As I was heading up to Sandgate to talk about the history and environment of Moreton Bay, I thought it would be great to take the kids up to interact with some of the finned inhabitants of the Bay. You can't just talk the talk, you've got to walk the walk. Fishing was easy even though the tides weren't perfect. We fished for a couple of hours on Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday morning off the foreshore. The tailor were fairly plentiful and while no big fish (best was 42 cm) we only caught one that was undersized. Overall we got a good mixed bag of tailor, dusky flathead, bar tailed flathead and bream. The best bream was 39cm.
      14. Hi guys, how's dohles Rocks going at the moment? I've caught a few small flattie there in the past, might revisit it soon.
      15. Hi guys after some more advice on another place i frequently fish Anybody have any landbased advice about boggy creek in pinkenba i fish here quite frequently i nornally get the normal bread and butter species (bream,flat head) ive caught a tailor here and a cod aswell but wonder if theres any other species that i could target I fish off the bank to the left of the boat ramp and cast baits into the current and let it drift out until i feel bites then leave it there and wait any advice about rig setups and bait presentation that im maybe not doing would be appreciated I use 10ft rod with baitrunner 30lb braid as its pretty rocky there with a sz 5 or 6 sinker and 50lb leader down to 2 snelled 4/0 or 5/0 hooks i use either mullet strips or whole pillies for bait.the current is strong thats why i use heavy sinkers and dont like using live bait is this wrong? My second rod i have 10lb line with a sz2 ball sinker tied to a swivel and 20lb leader with a small hook and mullet for bait I get the feeling the technique im using is wrong but dont know what else to do
