a summer of fishing

2020 isn’t a year we’ll forget in a hurry. As the year comes to an end I thought it’s best to focus on some positives. One big positive to come from this year is the increased participation in fishing. I’ve spoken to several tackle retailers and wholesale businesses and all agree we’re in the midst of a fishing boom. The same has happened in other sports and pastimes such as cycling, bushwalking, and hunting. Practically any outdoor activity has experienced an upswing in activity. It makes sense. As the pandemic hit, with the exception of Victoria, fishing and these other outdoor activities were still allowed and getting outside is a pretty good way of avoiding the virus. Tackle retailers had people walk through the door who had never tried fishing.…

inshore all-rounder

The inshore waters along our south eastern coastline offer a variety of exciting fishing opportunities. The “inshore”, a loose term referring to the waters extending from the coastline out to depths around 60-80m includes washes emanating from headlands, the seaward side of beach breaks, bommies and islands, and areas of deeper reef and rubble. In this vast zone both reef dwelling and pelagic species can be prolific in season. While some anglers specialise on a species, there are others who are adaptable and ready to tackle anything. They fish for what is on at the time. There might be mackerel swarming over the reef or snapper schooling on the gravel. There could be tailor in the wash or a jew on a ledge. The experienced inshore all-rounder can tackle all these…

know the rules & enjoy summer fishing fun!

THIS time of year is prime time for fishing fun with family and friends. Nothing beats being on summer holidays and heading to your favourite beach, river, lake or impoundment to wet a line and enjoy some quality “down time” in the great Aussie outdoors. Given summer is the peak fishing period in NSW, we thought now was a good opportunity to provide a quick refresher on the basics you need to enjoy responsible recreational fishing. LICENSED TO FISH If you’re fishing in NSW waters, both fresh and saltwater, you are required by law to carry a receipt showing the payment of the NSW Recreational Fishing Fee. You are exempt from paying this fee if you are under 18, an adult assisting children to fish, an Aboriginal person or the holder of a…

BERKLEY GULP GEL BERKLEY Gulp has been around for many years and helped drive soft plastic fishing in this country. Besides offering a large range of innovative styles and sizes - Gulp carries a deadly scent - one that really works. The scent was developed in the US by Berkley chemist John Prochnow. It was tested in the lab and in the field (around the world) on various surfaces, different species, and environments. The good news is Berkley has just released its Gulp Gel. The rub-on scent available in a tube works on the fish’s Olfactory system (taste and smell) and allows for an easy application to all dry surfaces. The boffins at Berkley say it also sticks to wet surfaces (re-applying), but dry is best if suitable. Is it the same as…
