RAINFOREST TO REEF
- Ed Vander Kruk & Derek Maynard
Few places on earth better demonstrate the direct connection between the health of the land, its rivers and the sea than tropical North Queensland. In this dramatic story, join Ed and Derek as they head offshore from the rainforest coast onto these warm, rich waters armed with light jigging gear, in search of arm-stretching action.
Starlo and Jo are out early, chasing wily black and yellowfin bream - as well as some tasty dusky flathead - in an estuary system on the far south coast of NSW. They're using a deadly combination of finesse tackle, advanced electronics, Squidgies Pro Prawns and S-Factor feeding stimulant in their hunt. Along the way, they clearly explain exactly how this highly efficient system works, as well as de-mystifying the entire subject of ultra-violet light and its critical role in modern lure fishing success... Trust us, you definitely don't want to miss this one!
SHARK BAY SNAPPER ON FLY
- Peter Morse & Ralf Jaehrling
Morsie hooks up with fellow fly fishing fanatic, Ralf Jaehrling, to chase pink snapper on fly fishing tackle in the shallows of WA’s beautiful Shark Bay, while also learning plenty about the management and encouraging recovery of the region’s incredibly valuable snapper stocks. Join the guys on the water and learn the best strategies for targeting these popular fish on fur and feathers.
Starlo and Jo are enjoying a bit of laid-back fishing in the piscatorial slow lane: kicking back on a scenic freshwater impoundment while soaking a few baits of live, locally-caught shrimp. But as the pair capably demonstrate in this story, returning to your bait fishing roots doesn’t mean dumbing down your fishing. As in any other form of angling, a little finesse, intelligence and attention to detail can still spell the difference between success and failure!
Join fishing journalist and kayak fishing fanatic, Scott Coghlan, on the rich waters of the Kalgan River estuary near Albany, in Western Australia, as he flicks lures for bream, juvenile Australian salmon and various other targets. Scott eloquently explains why he loves his ’yak fishing so much, and offers some valuable tips and insights into this increasingly popular branch of our sport.
The tip of North West Cape, near Exmouth in Western Australia, is a location that can turn on some red hot pelagic fish action for the shore-based angler at times. Join John Haenke as he offers some valuable advice on how to work your surface popper to entice a crashing topwater strike from big trevally… and, just as importantly, how to land these hard-fighting bruisers from the oyster-encrusted rocks!
WEEDLESS FOR WILD BARRA
- Robbie Wells & Vinnie Versfeld
Robbie and Vinnie are chasing the iconic Aussie barramundi in a beautiful, snag-filled northern billabong using a great new piece of award-winning hardware that definitely proves its worth in this demanding fishing scenario. These two accomplished barra anglers talk tactics and rigging, and will soon have you casting with confidence into wicked weed and dense cover that you might previously have regarded as being totally off limits.
