  1. Hello everyone, Once Yarrabah opens up, I will be trying my luck on it's headlands. I was just wanting some advice. Does anyone know of landbased barra, fingermark, jacks etc. been caught of False Cape or near it? I have seen some films fishing there but nothing but grunter and little fish. I will be throwing soft plastics and bait fishing. I cannot cast net off the rocks but will be throwing the net near the Yarrabah boat ramp. Should I be throwing my baits and lures as far as possible or just put them near the rocks. I do know for a fact that a headland right next to false cape (Kings Point) is a gun fingermark spot. This can only be accessed by boat though. Thank you for all your help.
  2. Hi all, I fish landbased off the piers in FNQ and constantly find I get baited without a hookup. I use 4/0 Eagle Claw Widegapes. I fish mostly with livebait or frozen prawns and squid. I am always getting bites on the frozen baits. They are reasonable and I have hooked fish like this in the past (but not much bigger than 40cm or smaller than 15cm). Should I fish like the snapper fishos in NZ fish by opening the bail arm and see if the fish runs with the bait? Thanks
  3. Hi all Does anyone have any tips for Yeppoon at about Christmas (we already have places and most things down pat) but i would like to work on three things. A. Catching livies, especially prawns, we normally get enough mullet, herring, etc - Places and what tide/time. B. Catching larger species, barra and threafin (which we already may encounter but not much) and maybe not in the Fitzroy as we might go there, just a small creek we can access land based (preferably not many crocs!) C. Catching more species like flathead and whiting. Once again, we already have some spots but maybe a surf beach or rock ledge.
  4. Finally north east winds started today after 10 months of south easterlies, so the beach is going to fire in the next few days. Hit the beach late afternoon with live mullet and managed a new PB at 116cm. My wife took the video; its a bit too long and gets boring sorry! Was released healthy.

  5. G'day fellas. I hope i'm not breaking any rules by posting this without being a regular contributor to posts? I regularly enjoy checking out the great fish reports. I have a bit of tackle that doesn't get used much so it's time to move it on to someone that'll make better use of it. Daiwa TDX 4-9kg 6'4'' 1 piece baitcast rod. Fuji K guides. Condition: Excellent. Might have been on the water 3-4 days in total. It was on clearance a couple years back at Tacklewarehouse Camphill for $189. Perfect rod for Cod, Jack, Barra and anything inbetween. They seem to be of a higher quality than the Generation black rods - don't understand why they've been discontinued. Price: $100 Tairyo Nano Speed 6'6'' 1 piece 2-4kg Spinning rod. Fuji SIC guides. Condition: Excellent. Used less than 5 days at Somerset Dam. Bought in 2017 at Sandgate bait&tackle on special for $199. Very lovely rod. Price: $100 I'm happy for anyone to come inspect Located in the Browns Plains area. Thanks for viewing.

    NT Barramundi Classic Darwin Game Fishing Club Daly River 7-13 of May 2018 (TBC). PH 0412 848 267 The NT Barramundi Classic is arguably Australia’s premier Barramundi fishing tournament, held on the unspoilt Daly River, located in the Northern Territory (250 kms south of Darwin). Held during the peak fishing times, barramundi are caught, measured, tagged and released by teams of three individuals and scores are accumulated on a length basis daily. Teams are permitted to fish a 52km stretch of the river from 7am to 5pm for five consecutive days. The outright winner is the team with the most accumulated points and receives the prestigious “Barra on a Stick”. This iconic tournament was was founded by the Darwin Game Fishing Club in 1982. From those humble beginnings the “Classic” has grown in stature every year to what you see today, a highly coordinated, state-of-the-art fishing tournament. The “Classic” is the flagship Barramundi fishing tournament worldwide and has a five-star National Accreditation. Competing teams descent on Darwin from all over Australia, as well as overseas to fish this week-long annual competition.

  11. Go Fish is doing a bit of research for the tourism operators in North Queensland. When you think of fishing in Cairns and the north, what's the first thing you think of? Mackerel? Barra? Coral Trout? Ideally what sort of accomodation do you stay in? Does the distance to the Cape or the Gulf hinder your decision? Any other opinions about fishing in Far North Queensland? Thanks!

  12. Story from http://www.news.com.au/national/northern-territory/experts-predict-bumper-fishing-season-ahead/news-story/b4c8a8cc5b42de2c9266d3cb5a61e0a0 THE stars have aligned for a bumper run-off fishing season in the Territory. Weather permitting, eager anglers will flock to barra hot spots as flooded rivers and creeks recede over coming weeks. Although only “early days”, Roger Sinclair of Arnhem Land Barramundi Lodge said the 2018 run-off season should not disappoint. “The lodge has only just opened up for fishing … initial reports are that it’s going mad up there,” he said. “It depends on whether or not we get another monsoon burst, but if we don’t you’d expect it to get even better from here on. “I don’t know when the penny will drop exactly … but it (the water) will get to the right level and things will just go crazy.” Typically running over March and April, the run-off season is one of the biggest annual drawcards of the Territory’s recreational fishing industry. At Daly River, a mecca for Australian barra fishing, locals are champing at the bit. “After the flood, the thing on everyone’s lips is fishing – the ‘run-off’,” said long-term Nauiyu resident Andy McTaggart. Stuart Brisbane, co-owner of Daly River Barra Resort, was bullish about the coming few weeks. “Last time we had good rain like this, the fishing was very good,” he said.“A few people have heard through the grapevine that it should be a good run-off this year. The flood plains are full, the river is still full, and everything is heading the right way.” But Mr Brisbane, who has operated fishing tours on the Daly River for more than a decade, said there were always “so many variables”. “If we get another monsoon trough, which is very possible, it brings the river back up again and the season will be even later,” he said. “But if we don’t get rain from now on, the run-off will be on for young and old in a week’s time.” Fishing expert and NT News columnist Alex Julius said the run-off would be one of the best the Top End’s had in several years after last year’s bumper Wet. “Last year there was a huge recruitment of juvenile barramundi and they will be nearly legal size, there will be plague proportions in some places,” he said.
