Rainbow Beach Fishing Trip

On Wednesday it was still blowing, so they decided to try something different – chase squid at the mouth of Carlo Creek. Not saying it was breezy or anything, but the parachute had to be deployed just to slow the drift enough for the poor squid to get a look at the jigs. Just when the anglers thought it couldn’t get any …

Techniques for How to Catch Fingermark in Queensland

As the squid come in towards the light you can use the squid net to scoop them up quickly.  The dimmer switch comes into play if the squid are staying out of reach of the net.  Once you have attracted the squid to the light, slowly dim the light and the squid will come closer until you can reach them. …

Fishing Conditions Looking Good for Monduran Dam

The photo I saw showed a burly young guy looking like he had just run a marathon, with the hefty fish draped across his body.

This jack was doing everything it possibly could to snap me off, however the rudder system attached to my new kayak allowed me to easily manoeuvre my kayak and the fish out of …

Landing the Elusive Reef Jack

I landed a couple and had several wipe-outs when I hooked what I initially thought was just another small kingfish. But then I looked over the side and saw something orange coming up. Perplexed, I gave the handle a few more turns and saw a mangrove jack of 4-5kg nearing the surface. In that split second when I recognised what the fish …

Darling Downs Golden Perch

There was something about that particular lure and its colour that really stirred up the fish. Straight after tying it on, I hooked three yellowbelly one after another. Simon also managed a couple of decent Murray cod at 60cm and 70cm. This just goes to show that no two river systems fish the same. It soon became apparent that regardless of what …
