Keen on salmon, flatties, bream

Like most of us, I am very much looking forward to some nice Spring weather and the improved fishing that comes with it.

Rivers and creeks topped up

With more rain finding its way to the Far South Coast over the past few months, creeks and rivers are flowing in the Eden area, ensuring good fishing over the coming months.

Lake and ocean run brown

After another good lot of rain which came down from the north gave Mallacoota a good soaking, the water was brown in the lake and out to sea for some distance.

The Port warms up

Its time to defrost as we head into Spring and there’s nothing better than feeling the sun on your face in the morning.

Bluefin disappoint

It's been a disappointing season for those targeting southern bluefin tuna way offshore, with only a few decent-sized fish caught.

Inshore reds rewarding

With Winter officially over we can expect warmer days and a few more fish. In saying that, it hasn't been too bad lately, depending on what you’re after.

Isuzu D-Max LS-Terrain

Since the release of the latest series D-Max a few years ago, Isuzu Ute Australia has progressively released new models to take on the opposition, which is pretty fierce when we consider the market niche.

Kapten Waverider 490

The Kapten Waverider 490 is a highly seaworthy alloy boat with unique internal side flotation and a somewhat radical design. That’s not surprising, considering it’s the newest product from Pat Jones, the inventor of Boat Collar, an add-on stabiliser and flotation product.

Jackets make fishos hot under the collar

Over the past couple of months the frustration levels of reef fishers have increased dramatically, all because of our Aussie piranhas, the leatherjackets.

Offshore still productive

It’s still prime time to fish Sydney offshore and all anglers will find many species to target as the westerly winds keep the swell down.

Cod season freezes out

Cod fishing along the Murray River slowed a little as the cold weather robbed the determination from all but the keenest of cod addicts and now the season has closed, they’ll have to wait until December to get their next fix.

Golden lining to Spring

Not too many native fish fans get overly excited when September rolls around; it signifies the closing of the Murray cod season and for many fishos the gear will be put away until Summer comes around.

Harbour fish a cure for the cold

The cold water is well and truly running through Sydney now, confirmed by the constant stream of whales passing by the Heads and occasionally even poking their blubbery noggins into Manly for a quick look.

Close eye on the water temp

With the arrival of Spring we can hope for the westerlies to keep away and with the days becoming longer, the water temperature in the dams and the rivers should begin to rise.

It’s a pig of a time!

September is usually one of the poorest months for fishing in the Manning area.

Daytime mulloway the go

September is a great time to get out and chase a fish the mighty Clarence River is well known for – mulloway.

Estuaries in prime condition

With lovely Spring weather on the cards, it’s time to hit the water and enjoy some fishing fun. Early starts will get easier this month and with the estuaries firing on all fronts, there should be lots on offer.

Look after our bogs

Although it seems just a few weeks ago that the stream trout season closed, we are already looking forward to the opening of the 2013-14 season in the first week of October.

Every season is different

Most seasoned anglers know you have to feel your way into a new season because every one is different.

Estuaries open for business

After Winter rains, a lot of the estuaries that have been closed to the ocean have reopened, especially the Bega River.

Kicking into a new season

All things said and done, the Winter fishing was pretty good in this part of the world, but it’s at this time of the year that the water temps start to rise, kick-starting the Spring season.

Bream hit the lake flats

The good news is the majority of the cold stuff is now behind us and we can start looking forward to Summer.

Rack up some bream

For those who like to chase quality fish, perhaps at the expense of missing out altogether, September is the month.

Target list starts to grow

Early signs of Spring have anglers itching to wet a line but the effects of Winter still have their hold beneath the water’s surface.

In pursuit of pelagics

Surface feeding pelagics bring an unequalled level of excitement to anglers all across our country.

Make the wind work

August and September can be very windy around these parts; in fact I’ve heard quite a few say that September should be called ‘Scumtember’.

Trevally on the close reefs

The Northern Beaches is often a great late Winter fishing spot, especially around the offshore reefs that stretch along the Barrenjoey Peninsula.

10th annual Hume Classic will be a biggie

The 10th Leigh Martin Marine Mercury Classic will be held at Lake Hume on the weekend of October 26-27.

Tomakin a top spot

I have travelled and fished our coast from the Queensland boarder to Victoria for the past 67 years and finished settling at the quiet coastal village of Tomakin.

The snail

One of the simplest and most effective flies you will ever tie is the snail. Its effectiveness early season, especially on tailing trout in flooded lagoons and tarns in Tasmania’s high country is second to none.
