SHALLOW FLATS BREAMING
- Andrew Badullovich & Mark Berg
Andrew and Mark are chasing hard-fighting yellowfin and black bream in very skinny water on the southern estuary flats using small hard-bodied lures and modern, ultra-light spinning tackle spooled with fluorocarbon line. This is one of the most exciting methods for targeting these incredibly popular fish, and in this entertaining segment, the guys will not only show you why, but also share some invaluable tips and hints to dramatically improve your finesse lure fishing results, wherever you cast a line and whatever species you chase.
You don’t need a boat, nor even a canoe or a kayak, to tap into some truly first class sport fishing for Australian natives. As Matt Langford and his mates prove in this great segment, all that’s really required is a sense of adventure, a little homework and the willingness to wear out some shoe leather racking up the kilometres! The rewards are more than worth it, as we’re sure you’ll agree when you witness some explosive surface strikes!
Starlo offers a fascinating insight into his life as a freelance fishing tackle designer, allowing us to join him on a field testing mission along the central northern coast of Queensland as he puts a couple of very exciting new soft plastic lures through their paces on all manner of fish, from the narrow confines of a mangrove-lined creek to the rugged rocky headlands beyond. He also passes on some absolutely invaluable tips that will dramatically improve your lure fishing results, wherever you cast a line.
COLD WATER MURRAY COD
- Will Lee, Robbie Wells & Dave Brace
The guys are walking the banks of a Murray/Darling headwater stream in the New England region of northern NSW, chasing Australia's largest and most iconic freshwater species: the mighty Murray cod. Despite freezing conditions overnight and very chilly water throughout the day, they prove that these fish remain eminently catch-able throughout the entire season using modern lure casting techniques.
- Mark Bargenquast & Alan Philliskirk
Bargy and Fish are at it again, this time dropping soft vibes down beside the shipping channel markers off the Queensland port of Weipa and hooking all manner of exciting sport and table fish in the process. Not only will the guys blow you away with the size and sheer variety of the fish they catch in this segment, they'll also teach you exactly how to present and work a lure vertically on this important style of structure, especially in tidal current. It's priceless info'!
FISHING THE OVERFLOW
- Steve 'Starlo' Starling & Matt Langford
Starlo and Matt launch their Cumberland Float Tubes into a big river hole below one of south eastern Queensland's stocked dams. Successive flood events have allowed many Australian bass, golden perch and other species to escape over the walls and spillways of these dams, where they've joined existing populations of 'wild' fish and others liberated by stocking groups and government agencies. The result is a vibrant and flourishing sport fishery for those willing to do a little homework and track down access points. Join the lads as they jig with metal blades for these feisty fish in a deep pool many kilometres downstream of the dam.
- Andrew Badullovich & John Haenke
Massive Lake Eucumbene, in the Snowy Mountains' high country of southern NSW, is one of Australia's favourite trout fishing destinations, attracting tens of thousands of hopeful visitors each year. However, with so much water to cover, many people struggle to consistently score trout. In this informative piece, Andrew and John show how to cut Eucumbene down to size by eliminating less productive areas and concentrating on prime, fish-holding country when casting-and-retrieving or trolling their lures. The lessons they impart will serve anglers well, not only here on Eucumbene, but anywhere they chase our speckled freshwater immigrants in extensive bodies of still water.
JIGGING SPANISH MACKEREL
- Dan Kaggelis & Ken Elliot
Targeting line-scorching Spanish mackerel on jigged metal lures is one of the most exciting games available in our tropical and sub-tropical waters, especially during the cooler Dry Season months. Dan and Ken are masters of this deadly technique, and willingly share their wealth of knowledge in this exciting segment, including such sneaky tips as dispensing with wire altogether when the macks are being a bit fickle.
Robbie Wells & friends fish the upper reaches of the Burdekin River for hard fighting Sootie & Small Headed Grunter. There’s loads of information on fishing hard body lures, where access is on foot, and the fishing is shorebased. The gin clear water of this river, & sight casting to fish cruising over sand and rockbars, will leave you wanting to pack your gear and head out to this spectacular location.
