Life Update

Hello everyone, As most of you know I have been fishing as much as I can but lately there has been no time. I started my apprenticeship back in April and lately it has been going crazy at work and I work 50+ hours and 6 days a week. I would love to see all the photos of your fish you have all caught...

Re: Fishing Report

Tough luck mate - maybe give an idea of what rig/bait set up you were using and some of us might be able to give you some advice for next time. At the reservoir I used everything from a hook with a float, lures/spinners and then just a hook. My bait was powerbait and worms. At the pier I used a hoo...

We got there around 7am and there was already quite a few people there. I bought new gear and was so eager to get a fish finally. We found a beautiful spo...

Sunday Fishing

G'day gents! I am planning on heading out Sunday morning to do some quality fishing and maybe catch my first big fish! I am thinking about going Altona Pier if that is allowed to be fished. I have tried researching but cannot find anything saying yes or no to being allowed to fish there. I was also ...

Re: Another learning experience

I put a spinner on my beautiful rod and just moved up and down the shore. I felt more confident using it because there seemed to be little to no snags compared to my local lake. This bit of all jumped out at me. If you want to catch fish you have to fish some form of structure. I'm not confident if...

Re: Another learning experience

I know exactly how you feel mate. I ve only been fishing for a few months and still wondering why I didn't start earlier. Since I am land based most of the times I get big fat donuts but it only makes me try harder. I have picked up every possible book about knots, rigs and fish species and try and...
