Our Calamari Tool

When we started saltwater fishing again, one of our trips had to be to catch a whole lot of squid in Port Phillip Bay. But when it came time to clean them, because it has been a few years, it took me a while to work out what I was doing. When I had worked it out, it was still ultra fiddly. Luckily, when was went to the 4×4 Fishing and Boating expo in Melbourne last year, we came across the SquidEzy. It’s fantastic for getting your calamari clean. Our set is......

Portland

We finally got a chance to get to Portland. It’s a 5 hour drive, so it’s not one that we will do regularly, but we were very impressed by the boat ramp facilities and what was getting caught. It’s coming into blue fin tuna season. We thought we’d go down to Portland to get some early blue fin. We didn’t manage to catch any, though. But we did catch quite a few albacore tuna instead, which taste even better anyway. This is certainly a spot we will be returning to, so hopefully......

Sevengill Shark

I was a bit surprised when I caught a baby sevengill shark in Port Phillip Bay. The Bay is known for gummy shark, so at first that’s what I assumed this was.

There are only two types of sharks with seven gills – the bluntnose and the sharpnose. This was a baby bluntnose sevengill. Most other shark species have five gills. The bluntnose sevengill shark is one of the only sharks......

Project Trident

Project Trident

We have decided to upgrade our boat. We are sticking with Quintrex, but we are going from the Hornet to the Trident. Our Hornet was a centre-console 4 metre boat. The Trident is a 6 metre boat with a cabin, which will provide us with more protection and get us out into the ocean more. The Trident will be far more versatile and should provide us with lots more opportunities for fishing trips that will give us great video footage to post here! Akro also loves the cabin in the new boat!...

Long Weekend At A Mountain Lake

It was the Queens Birthday long weekend here recently, so we took the opportunity to go to a fairly remote mountain lake for a weekend fishing – Lake Dartmouth. We went for trout fishing, but disappointingly we didn’t catch a single trout. We tried multiple lures trolling, at various depths and speeds. We tried casting lures, and we tried baitcasting. It just wasn’t our weekend, and sometimes that happens. The scenery was amazing, but the lake was down a bit on capacity, and the banks were steep with few places to camp.......

why i fish

When I go fishing off the south NSW coast, I go on the Ultimate. This footage is from a 2012 trip, so it’s a bit old, but it was a great fishing trip. Look forward to more videos, because I will be filming more of my fishing, as well as reviews and other information … coming soon!...
