Boat-based camping around Cape York

Swamp sedges and often pandanus trees signal water above or below ground, and small waterholes perched in the dunes are relatively common along many parts of eastern Cape York. In other places, underground water is signposted by damp ground and/or green patches of grass, and simply accessed by digging a hole. Use a metal mug, flattish rock or shell to …

Bass Fishing Tips from a Professional

They are the paddle-tail soft plastic, metal blade and the old-time favourite, the spinnerbait. The soft plastic is my favourite lure presentation because of its versatility. Its natural subtle action allows it to be fished year round, whether to an edge or down deep on both active and inactive fish.

Trolling around Cape Moreton

trolling for dolphinfish cape moreton

With the fish now in range, I placed the gaff under the fish, lifted it into the Esky and quickly closed the lid. Dolphinfish have a habit of going absolutely crazy when you lift them into the boat, and there is a real likelihood that a flying hook could penetrate a leg or arm, so placing the fish into the confined …
