I'm brand new to the thread, so gidday to everyone.

Long story short, I have been fishing the estuaries in my 3.7m tinny landing flatties with my son and loving it. However, after several mystery bust off's in the Brunswick, I decided to start targeting larger fish, resulting in a charter, resulting in me realising that I need to get offshore!!!

I've just started looking at larger boats (Im thinking something around 5m, 60ish HP, side console, alloy) and reckon I'll be setup by Xmas 2018, but in the meantime I would love to head out with others to get a feel for what I need.

I'm completely geared up, able to fish (nothing worse than spending all day baiting others hooks) and willing to cover costs. Probably worth noting is that I spent my youth boat fishing around the NZ coast, so I am familiar with boating. I just need to meet other decent fisho's who like to head out.

I live in Tallebudgera Valley (southern Gold Coast), but am willing to travel.

PM me if you are heading out and are happy for me to join you.
