National Day of recreational Fishing

Aug 29, 2016 - 3:34 PM - by Lucky_Phill
here's a chance to show the Govt we are a force to be listened to.

https://www.facebook.com/gonefishing...3/?pnref=story

Please post up your " Gone Fishing Day " program / location / intentions ?

For me...... I reckon I'll take some family and friends to Fraser Island for the weekend... bit of camping and beach fishing. I'll also make it an IT Free trip.. no mobiles, laptops, ipads or chasing Pokemons.

Comon.... get involved...


Cheers LP

Black Bass In West Papua

Aug 28, 2016 - 9:37 PM - by Aussie123
On the 6 September I am heading over to Kaimana in West Papua chasing those infamous Black Bass.
We are meeting a mate in Makassar on the 6th where we will stay the night before heading off at 3am the next morning for Ambon and then Kaimana.
We arrive in Kaimana on the morning of the 7th where we will get our supplies together and load the boat.Here we stay the night before we head off on a 5 hour boat ride to where we will be setting up camp for 14 days Black Bass fishing.
Expected species is Black Bass, Spot Tail Bass, Saratoga, Archer Fish, Jungle Perch, Barramundi, Snakeheads, Cod and Groper and many other types of fish up in the river systems as well as a huge range of salt water species down around the river mouths.
It should be a cracker trip as we will be in a really remote area of West Papua surrounded by beautiful waterways and dense jungle.
These are the final lure selections that I have gathered for the trip.

where can I buy an ensilage fork

Aug 24, 2016 - 4:56 PM - by Dignity
I went to dig some wigglers with a mate today, something I hadn't done for 20 years and couldn't find my worming fork, don't remember ever loaning it or selling it but it is nowhere to be found so I am up for a new one. Trouble is I can't locate one anywhere, I've checked with the local produce merchants but none of them have them, so does anyone know where I can lay my hands on on. Close to Caloundra would be nice but willing to travel further afield if need be, or if someone is willing to sell one.
