I purchased my first offshore worthy vessel just over a year ago: a 4.8m Galeforce. After paying my dues in the rivers of South-east Queensland and Moreton Bay in my tinnie for 7-8 years, it was time to focus on larger fish in the rich offshore waters of SEQ. It has been a steep learning curve, with a few donuts, but there have been some decent fish landed.
Whether you call them saddle tail snapper, red jew, or large mouth nannygai, there is no denying the fact they are one of the best fish in the ocean to target.
Growing to over 10kg in weight and up to the metre mark in length,they can really put a bend in the rod and always go the full ten rounds.
Mercury Marine is excited to introduce its all new V6 FourStroke outboard family and the expansion of its SeaPro commercial line.
Just unveiled at the 2018 Miami International Boat Show, the new engines include 175hp, 200hp and 225hp FourStroke outboards and a V6 200hp SeaPro commercial outboard.
Most of us have those dream trips always in the back of our heads - some have the opportunity to make those dream trips occur and some just keep on dreaming. I moved to Bamaga over four years ago and during my time in such an amazing part of Australia, I have always talked about my dream fishing trips that I would love to do before ever relocating.
