      1. So after such a increase in reports lately (probably due to @Drop Bear setting such a high bar) I thought it would be really worth asking this question... We all write in different ways and with differnet styles but what do we as readers want? My style changes massively depending whether I am on phone or computer with a lot more effort going into computer reports. It can be a despondent feeling putting in a solid chunk of time to a report to only have 1 or 2 comments... It is not a vain thing, just a hope the info is appreciated. So what do we want? Lots of pictures? Lots of narrative? (a fishing story). Lots of information? (lure types, tides, etc). Successful and failed missions? Locations (this is always an interesting point of contention) What else is there? For me I like a narrative, but do appreciate hearing about gear and how it goes that I am unaware of. Pictures is a plus of course but would prefer a report sans pictures than no report at all. Locations: I am happy to know the hows and whys of fishing, and try and work out locations for myself. I think giving away spots prevents a lot of anglers reporting as (and we have all seen it) other try and pressure them for spots. Although I am fairly free with my information I respect that some people have put a lot of effort into finding and working out spots. A good report with pictures and no location is the fuel I need to get out and explore so I will take it! Please discuss Angus
      2. Hi Guys, Read that some crabbers have been having problems with theft from crab traps. I have been developing a new system of a dye or ink stain device that operates when the pot is removed from the water, a float disperses a needle that brakes a dye packet, hence dye every where, any comments if this would be of interest to anyone?? Is it illegal?
      3. Now that is a wave. And it is only going up!
      4. Since Oma is ruining any chance of fishing at the moment I thought we could resurrect the old standby for such depressing times - a game of What Am I? For those who haven’t played before, it is pretty simple. Someone starts it off by giving one clue about the identity of the fishing related secret creature. As people start guessing, the host releases new clues one at a time (often enough to keep the game moving) and it continues like this until someone answers correctly. No asking questions, just guesses based on the clues. That person then kicks off with a new secret animal. Any other rules we can make up as we go along. I will kick it off: The clue is “I can grow to around 3kg. What am I?”
      5. @ellicat please delete if not appropriate.... Sorry I have had a few and saw some funny photos.
      6. Coal fired Ships on the Brisbane River . Fishing at newstead park . The oasis. The markets I remember it all.
      7. well I hope you got out Yesterday. I did it was glorious. No fishing but had a great day messing around on the lease near Myora. There is a good chance that the cyclone is gonna hit us. No fishing for a little bit I suspect. I put a stack of oyster shells out on the leases... Probably wasted my time. Oh well we need the rain. It might get those prawns moving on the Southside.
      8. Sup All! I am thinking about applying for a NBN connection, all the companies I have searched have bad reviews (optus, belong, vodafone) etc etc. Does anyone has any suggestions which provider to choose?
      9. Hey Anybody used Solar Buddies before? Applicator that applies sunscreen without getting any on your hands! video-1542002492 (2).mp4
      10. Item number 192784853113 12/24 volt charger23 amps on 12 volts and 17 on 24volts reduced from around $60 to $29.08 I got one months ago and it runs perfectly good cheap spare. Hard to get hold of a dual voltage charger with a decent output.Only thing wrong is that it has US240v plug so you have to use an adapter or change it. Cheers Ray Sorry not able to show actual ebay snip.
      11. I can not see any sense in putting up a post when nek minute you are down the page and gone after someone answers every post, no names mentioned. A new format could stop a lot of this happening, something like 3 major headings, General, Fishing Reports Saltwater and Fishing Reports Freshwater. I have seen days where a fishing report goes up and then a whole heap of general posts goes up and the report goes down the page and gone. I have been on here since 2007 and have enjoyed posting, but I think a change is overdue. Dino
      12. would anyone one here know if there is a pub in turkey beach
      13. Copy of email Cheers Ray From: Niall Byrne [] Sent: Tuesday, 8 January 2019 1:40 PM To: '' Cc: '' Subject: Have you seen a sawfish? Dear Queensland Amateur Fishing Clubs Association, Could your members help us find out what’s happening to sawfish? I’m writing on behalf of Barbara Wueringer, the director of Sharks and Rays Australia (SARA). She wants to hear about your sightings – a live fish, a saw on the wall of your local pub, or a photo from your family album Forty years ago, sawfish were regularly seen off Sydney and the east coast, and Perth and up the west coast. Today they’re rarely seen outside of the Gulf of Carpentaria, NT and the Kimberley . Your sightings, no matter how long ago they happened, will help us work out how many sawfish there used to be, how many remain, and how we can help them recover. Here’s a copy of a media release we’ve issued about the call to action. You can report sightings and find out more about the project at We’re also discussing the project on social media @SharksAndRaysAu, where we’ve shared some footage of sawfish hunting. Kind regards, Niall ________ Niall Byrne Creative Director Science in Public 82 Hudsons Road, Spotswood VIC 3015 0417 131 977 Or call the office on 03 9398 1416 Full contact details at
      14. Hi all. I am looking for a semi-retired builder/carpenter/good handyman (or woman) to replace my front landing. Currently it is a concrete pad sitting in a steel cradle and that cradle is rusting away. I want to replace it with hardwood decking. It is only small (about 2.2 sq metres) and access is good. One complication - the pad is sitting on an asbestos sheet that will need to be removed. Keeping the same stairs and metal railing. Would require some welding. If you know someone can you let me know? Cheers, Steve.

        Fishing Buddy

        I'm looking for a land based fishing buddy living in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne. I've got a few health problems and can only fish areas with easy access. Not fun getting old. I don't mind an Ale, I mostly target Carp on light gear these days. My New Years resolutions are to go fishing more, and catch that big mongrel Carp that lives in our local lake.
      16. Had a bad start to the break when the wife hit a red-light-runner this morning. Navara won the battle but still needs an operation.
      17. Where did everyone go away for Christmas, let's see what amazing places people have gone or are going to..

        1 Less Mud Sucker

        I picked this mudsucker up on worms the other day. I still haven't given up on his old man, he is about half this size again. He has spooled me twice while I have been using light gear
      19. Morning all and a very happy new year! Well 2018 was a bit of a write off for me fishing wise and online presense wise but hoping to change that in 2019! I hope everyone had a good 2018 and is planning an epic 2019. Angus
      20. Yesterday whilst looking at a new car I didn't realise I'd dropped my glasses on the ground. Went to go for a test drive and here's the result....
      21. Soooo... that time of year when a fat man tries to slide down the chimney only to work out we all have modern houses and fireplaces are a thing of the past. Besides, the last thing you want is @ellicat creeping around your roof on Xmas eve stealing your cherry ripes and any other chocolate not nailed down. Interested to hear what plans people have for the festive period. I have ~2 weeks forced leave from work so figured I might as well do something fun, as such, I have a bit of a little roadtrip planned, kicking off at sparrows this Saturday. Brisbane -> Barrington Tops -> Jindabyne -> Top of Kozzi -> Vic high country -> (maybe) Wilson's Prom -> Brisbane. Looking to take any opportunity to try and land my first aussie trout along the way, may be able to sneak in a beach or estuary fish on the way back home depending on where the trip goes. Feels weird only packing one rod for such a trip but I have come to terms with it in my head... i think... i have about 30 hard bodies and 15 packets of plastics to make up for it though! So i've told you mine... what are you up to??
      22. All have a Great Christmas and New Year. May your rods bend often and the fish large. Eat, drink, be merry and stay safe. This is the time for the loonies to be on the road and on the water.
