    Big fat whiting with my Dad and Grandad, fishing out of a wooden row boat in the Noosa River, out the back of Grandads house, which was in HKastings St, Noosa. Aged Aout 2. Can vaguely remember crabbing there too, big mud crabs chasing me around the boat.....

    Apparently I got bored after catching about half a dozen big ting and had a sleep while the old guys kept catching them.

    His block of land went right thru to the river from Hastings St.

    Grandad, why did you sell the house at Hastings st before Noosa boomed? I could be driving a 7m Surtees instead of the 5.5.....

    I was like Noelm,
    I grew up with the water at our back boundary, (Caroline bay, Gosford).
    I cant remember what fish was my first, but to hazzard a guess,
    probably a bream.

    What was my first fishing memory???
    Mum setting me up with a bucket of water & a stick with a safety pin on a bit of cotton,
    didnt catch anything but I remember it was fun trying.

    Can't remember - I think it was this trip, was the upper reaches of the Brissy River (when you could walk along with bare feet and not risk being sliced open by a beer bottle) and most likely silver perch on handline with garden worms. Around 1970 I think. Used to get a few too! Dad used to cut my hair, what a shocker!

    I don't remember the first, but the most significant was a monster Flatty on a handline, my Late Mum taught me how to live bait for. I still remember her showing me how to pin the poddy mullet through the lips, and the utmost importance of letting it swim away with it, and trying to count to 10 before striking. Haha it was agonizing as a kid waiting those 10 seconds haha

    Still fish the same way now sometimes, only for fish with big sticks on their noses!

    Cheers,
    Myles

    P.s my brother and I often used live garden worms with great success on the flatties and cod in Cabbage Tree creek. Couldnt afford to buy "proper" worms

    Another one for the old original Woody Pt Jetty. About 5ish I got a pretty good summer whiting on what would have been a little Alvey from my grand father's holiday house on Drake St Woody Pt.

    Silver perch from leslie dam near warwick. I remember dad cooking it up and pretending it was delicious...though now looking back I realise why he covered it in tomato sauce (with the dam around 8% full and blue green algae).
