      1. 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
      2. Hi everyone, I hope you're all well. I thought id share a funny video that I spent some time putting together covering the very controversial topic of HOW TO CATCH & COOK CARP. I bet you're Curious?? Watch and enjoy a step by step instructional guide on catching carp. Things turn a little crazy as I throw in plenty of light hearted humour including some bizarre cooking & cleaning tips. It’s all in good fun, so I hope you enjoy the video. Please remember to support my channel by subscribing & commenting if you enjoyed it. Just so I'm sharing some knowledge for others. I was using a 3-5 kilo rod, a 2000 size reel spooled with 10 pound braid. Baits used were corn kernels from the can and bread. I also use scrub worms and maggots. Was filmed at a couple of various locations mainly Cherry lake in Altona. I hope you find some helpful tips. My first attempt at some light hearted humour so I look forward to the comments and feedback. Video link - https://youtu.be/0peEn7YvlYQ
      3. Hi everyone. Ferntree Gully reservoir will once again be stocked with a further 400 rainbow trout yearlings this week. I fished this spot a couple of weeks ago and caught 10 trout in 90 minutes. All catch and release. I was using powerbait in bright colours and scrub worms on a very simple running sinker rig. It's a great spot to take the family. Very scenic views, birdlife and tremendous fishing. Here is a video of the session which shows some rigging and catching techniques that will hopefully help others catch a few fish too. Video link - https://youtu.be/765RvzwvfsY
      4. So not an awesome video but wow what a fish.
      5. 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
      6. 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
      7. 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
      8. 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.
      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. 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.
      11. Hi everyone Video Link - https://youtu.be/IA43ko9I1u8 ( please sub if you enjoy the video ). Thought I'd share a fishing report from the weekend. We launched from St Helens boat ramp. For bait we were using pippis and small strips of squid. We found some shallow weedy areas. Berleyed up. We had 2 rods each. One a simple running sinker rig and the other a whiting flasher rig. Once again, we caught plenty of good size whiting, a heap of undersize pinkies and some flathead. A couple of weeks ago I posted a video catching plenty of whiting from around Corio Bay. Shortly after I received heaps of questions from followers, so I have put together a short video with some tips and to answer many of those questions whilst hitting the water and catching a few more. Best Regards Alan from FishingMad
      12. 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.
      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. Hi everyone, I was challenged to try and catch a fish out in the bay using only an inflatable pool tube instead of a high-end kayak. Video can be seen here I was equipped only with a 1-4 kilo 1DFR spin rod, a packet of pre-rigged Fathead curl tail soft plastics, a net, orr, life jacket and pliers. This challenge came from a follower who suggested that fisherman only catch fish because they have expensive kayaks or boats. I thought best to prove a point why not use a $30 pool tube from BCF out in Port Phillip bay. Thankfully I managed to land a few fish without drowning, being stung or eaten. Watch the video carefully at 3:05 you will see something large surface right next to the pool tube. Been some debate on whether this was a stingray, shark, seal or dolphin. Have a look and see what you think. This is a classic. It was very challenging to keep balance, navigate through some issues with broken line but with persistence, I landed 2 Snook, 4 Pinkies and 2 Flathead in just over an hours fishing. All in a bit of fun, please don’t try this on your own, we acknowledge that this is a little dangerous if not done in a controlled fashion. if you enjoy the video then please subscribe to the channel Website - www.fishingmad.com.au YouTube - www.youtube.com/c/fishingmad Facebook - www.facebook.com/fishingmad.com.au Instagram - www.instagram.com/fishingmad.com.au

      17. Just need help identifying a fish. Hard with no photo, didn’t have my phone on me but they had sharp teeth, very loose big scales, very bad smell. Silver and brown with a yellow tail and impressively large eye. Caught south east vic coast. Similar size to a large KGW, and very eager to smash the metals. Thanks if anyone can answer this!
      18. Hi Guys, Recently joined and thought I'd post up a fishing report from the other night. Fished off the rocks using a Shimano sephia squid jig and managed to get 8 squid. Used some as fresh bait out on a surf rod and managed a couple of small flathead and a port Jackson shark. The squid and flathead made a very nice feed last night. I recently bought from Godline braid off amazon due to its cheap price and good reviews, and fair to say, after my first use I am very impressed. Very good casting distance and strength, will be definitiely buying some more and spooling a few more reels up. Thats it from me for now. Happy Fishing
      19. I had a day trip up to king parrot a couple weeks ago, got one hit from a trout but that was it. I know there are good spots there and there are trout in the river, any tips on how to find them better.

      23. Hey guys Im heading down to Inverloch soon for a fish, i have been there multiple times with no real luck. Im thinking of going to the entrance of Andersons Inlet for Gummy at night or Mulloway. Any tips? Cheers Jorden
      24. Hey. Dropbear sister caught this today.... Stunning looking fish. This is the only photo I have... Whiting??? Caught near Vic NSW border. Fish was released... sadface it looks yummy haha
      25. Just returned from my holiday down south and I have to report that I have found fishermans paradise at Malacoota Inlet just below the NSW dorder into Victoria. We spent 3 days there and could of spent 3 weeks as the fishing was plentiful. Arrived late in the afternoon on the first day and managed 5 legal flatty and one small chopper tailor. Next AM I could not get past the chopper tailor. They alienated about 20 of my SP's. I called into a tackle shop and the chap told me to go up the inlet further to get away from the chopper tailor. I took his advice and landed in paradise. I was averaging a dozen good size flathead every 2 hour session. Most of them were caught on avocado coloured squidgee fish. If I could achieve this from the bank just imagine what it would be like in a boat. The inlet consists of an entrance from the sea followed by a large lake then you move into what they call the narrows (where I caught most of my fish) then it opens out into what they call top lake. At the top of this lake is the start of 2 rivers where they tell me estuary perch abound. Some of you may have noticed Malacoota on Starlo and Bushies DVD but if you ever get the opportunity it really is paradise and worth the trip. I am including some photos that just dont do it justice.
