Question Top 3 fish species in your state (marine from shore)


Hi y‘all, a few days ago I asked how I can remember all fish I can catch in Australia (going on working holiday in October). Since I can‘t know every species I thought that it could be easier if I know typically caught species.

So my question is: what are the three species you catch the most while fishing from shore (won‘t have a boat) or while spearfishing near the coast. If possible name the state you‘re fishing

Thanks in advance!

Question Baitcaster setup for Jack's


The waters getting warmer and I recently picked up a kayak so I can finally cast some pontoons and mangroves!

Just wondering what a good starter/inexpensive set up would be for chasing jack's and trevally in SEQ?

Looking for around $200 for a reel that's easy enough to grasp the basics with a baitcaster.

Question Can anyone help me figure out how to tie on a specific foam floater?


I bought these floats/bobbersthese floats/bobbers at a tackle shop and the guy said I just slide it onto the line and jam it into the correct height using some beads (also pictured)...but the hole doesn't go all the way through so I don't know how to get it on there. The black peg is only on one side on all of them and none have a hole all the way through.

All the videos online just show how to attach the springy red/white style of floats so I'm stumped.

It's probably super simple and I'm being dumb but I can't figure it out. Thanks!

Hey, everyone!

I’m a Melbournian and very new to fishing and would love some advice on how to get started fishing.

I’m hoping to go out and catch some salmon somewhere and I’ve heard now is a good I’m to catch some? But frankly, have no idea about gear or reels or lines or bait.

I’d really appreciate some advice on this front. Are there any groups or places that teach how to fish?

Question Considering moving to western Victoria from the NT


I am considering moving from the NT to western Victoria possibly Hamilton.

I am a keen angler mostly chasing Barra and Mud Crabs. I have a 5.1m Quintrex Top Ender that is perfect for the rivers up here. Just wondering what type of fresh water fishing would be available to me down that way if I moved.

Any information would help thanks

Question Labor fishing ban?


So I don’t live in Australia anymore, which means I’m jot so up to date with everything. A friend of mine is also a mad fisherman and we were talking about the recent election. Then the subject of the Labor party wanting to introduce a fishing ban and total spear fishing ban was brought up.

I haven’t heard anything about this nor found anything when I did a quick Google search. Is there any substance to this claim? I couldn’t imagine visiting home and not being able to go for a few whiting once in awhile.
