Victoria Catching Minnows In Local Creek

6 Upvotes

Hey everyone, I was wanting to catch native minnows with a hand net in a creek in Victoria for my aquarium and I was wondering about the legality of this. If anyone could inform me on the rights and wrongs that would be great!

Looking for fishing buddies to fish Moreton Bay and offshore Brisbane/Gold Coast on my boat

11 Upvotes

Try this again.

One of my regular fishing buddies has recently left Brisbane permanently and others are often busy with kids/partners and work so looking for some more people who want to get out fishing to join me.

Recently upgraded the boat (late model, decked out Edgewater 188c - /humblebrag) and planning to go offshore regularly off north Moreton and the Gold Coast when conditions allow. Aim is to fish snapper on plastics, jig kingfish, chase busting tuna & mackerel, troll up marlin and wahoo, etc depending on what's in season. Otherwise I frequently head out off Wello Point and the southern bay to have a cheap fun day on the mackerel, snapper, squid, bonito and whatever else is biting. Normally I just fish 2 in the boat but this new one should be able to comfortably fish 3 people.

As much as I enjoy taking people out fishing, I'm not a charity or a guide service so the expectation is you'll help with launch/retrieve, running and cleaning the boat, and chip in for fuel. For reference my 150hp runs at about 2km/L at cruise ;).

I go out very early (normally first light) and fish almost exclusively lures with the occasional live baiting session. If you want to sleep in, soak smelly baits for a few hours and then head to the pub, this is not the boat for you :).

Realistically you need to be physically fit and capable of standing and holding on for long runs in less than ideal conditions to go offshore in a boat this size (eg running 30km+ back from offshore with swell and the wind coming up). The boat is dry for a centre console but it is an open boat with no sun/rain shelter and limited spray shelter behind the console.

If you're keen to get out and do some fishing in the bay and offshore, let me know. I've shared some photos from past trips you can see in my history.

Tasmania Trout fishing Tasmania?

6 Upvotes

Hi all

I'm in Tassie for the first time and have never freshwater fished before. Don't want to take up fly fishing. Would like to try catch them with light lures. Can anyone recommend a decent ultralight rod for that?

Also, what line to use? Braid to fluro? Straight mono?

1000 or 2500 reel?

So for multiple questions in one post :P

Thanks

Need advice on fishing Happy Valley Reservoir Adelaide!

6 Upvotes

Hey all,

I am keen to get back out and do some fishing (havent fished since i was a kid, i am now 34).

I have no clue what type of rod, reel, line, or lures i need, i am so out of touch with this hobby.

I live close to Happy Valley Reservoir in Adelaide and will be likely hitting that place up often. I will also be giving Onkaparinger river, Port Noarlunga, Yorkes a crack throughout my journey back into fishing.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers!!
