30° South: the best of both worlds
Stephen Worley | March 2014

Excellent bream call the Coffs Marina home. This one was caught on a prawn by Nezzie Gaden.

Coffs Harbour, lying on the fabled 30° South Latitude line, has been labelled by the CSIRO as having the best climate in Australia. It has also been internationally awarded as the most liveable city in the world. Not too hot, but not too cold. Not too crowded, but plenty of services and amenities.

Shallow flathead trolling
Stephen Booth | January 2014

I’ve been getting right into trolling for flathead in shallow water lately and it’s something that is really appealing. Punting along nice and quiet just waiting for the rod to buckle over and a cranky flathead to start stripping line from the reel. It’s pretty addictive.

Troll a lipless crankbait
Wayne Dubois | January 2014

To reduce the number of snags, try removing the down-facing hook off the front treble, but be sure to cut the right one. The hang-ups reduce but the hook-up rate stays much the same.

Roderick Walmsley | January 2014
