88Nm In A 4.2m Punt! - Miles Tam 2017

Now many are probably thinking ‘is this bloke for real’? The short answer is ‘yes’, but there were many factors that allowed this to happen. Firstly I know this area better than my own backyard,

Sunny Coast Offshore Yakking - Barry Stevenson

The weather prediction for the day was light winds and half a metre of swell; perfect for an offshore kayak fish with a beach launch. I was aiming for a bit of fun chasing sweetlip or squire and if I could get a few on plastic, all the better.

Brisbane Monster Geets - Cody Hochen November 2017

In my previous article, I left readers hanging in suspense with a story about monster SEQ GTs. As promised here it is. Although I didn’t catch one, I had the pleasure of lifting their massive frames over the side of the Galeforce to admire one of the ocean’s toughest and sought after sportfish.

Bundy Fresh Options - Dave Magner

While Bundaberg is perhaps better known for the extensive saltwater fishing options it provides, it’s actually not a bad place to base yourself if you prefer to fish freshwater. Being located towards the lower end of what is effectively Central Queensland, it is surrounded by a diverse mix of southern and northern species. In fact, it’s quite possible to find yourself hooking anything from Mary River cod, to bass or even barramundi on the one trip.

Cairns Marlin Season 2017 - Stephen Polzin

Not a lot of anglers look forward to winter in Cairns.  The daylight hours are shorter, it can blow to unfishable strengths for months at a time, barra and jacks go on a diet and it’s bitterly cold.  Ok I made that last one up.  It does though bring one redeeming feature, as this is when the small black marlin come to town. 

November 2017 Fishing & Moon Phases

Western Cape York - Talina O'Brien 2017

As winter hits Cape York, the temperatures have been dropping to a horrible 20-something degrees, temperatures that would make those chilly southerners very jealous.

Sandy Straits Flatties - Andy Pennell 2017

The humble flathead may just be the perfect fish. From its accessibility to shore-based anglers to its qualities on the table, there is a lot to like about our flat boned friend.

"Fitzroy to Broomfield" - Peter Ford 2017

The Bunker Group is the beginning of The Great Barrier Reef and also happens to be the closest major coral reef system to the mainland in Qld making it a popular destination for the offshore fisherman from as far south as Brisbane, some six hours drive away.

Stejcraft Monaco 640 & 610 Review - Peter Kaye 2017

It doesn’t take long to learn that a Stejcraft review means an awesome experience on the water and the 610 and 640 Monaco models lived up to that expectation. Both boats were immaculately presented and both gained a lot of public attention at the ramp before and after the review.

Dave Donald Hits Kiritimati - Oct 17 Edition

There is one species that sits way up above any other in the saltwater fly fishers wish list – the bonefish. The author has caught them before but this time he headed out in search of Bonefish Nirvana and reckons that he may just have found it! Let’s wade the vast coral flats of this mid-Pacific paradise and see what he’s raving about.
