  1. Emmaville Cod Trip

    Was lucky enough to go with Swordy ( Stewy) & John Dory (Dave) to the Severn River for a 4 day Cod Fishing trip. This place never ceases to amaze me with its ruggedness & beauty all rolled into one, from the platypus just cruising by while you fish to the bloody snakes (lots) your constantly watching out for. The roos the Wild deer & goats, the birdlife but most of all the fishing on this pristine river makes for everlasting memories. No internet, radio, newspapers, phones you can't help but just soak it all in. The fishing started slow but once we worked out a few things,we caught and released over 60 fish between the three of us, with some great sessions. A big thanks to Stewy for all the preparation he puts into planning these trips. If there's something you need he's probably got it stashed somewhere and when he,s not fishing he'll be making you up a shiny new spinnerbait. And to Dave, we may have had 1star accommodation, but the dinners you kept knocking up from that shit kitchen tasted like 5 star. It was much appreciated. Im not real good or quick at posting photos,so maybe Stewy or Dave could post a few in. Cheers Deano.
  2. First Bass

    Looks like you've got a good set up for bass fishing. If that was your first i don't think it will be your last.. Where are you fishing? Just tell your mate to Zoom in a bit more while you hold the fish!
  3. Swordies fish Glenbawn

    Hi Swordies, Good to see you finally up there and into them already.. Shame about the Kiosk. Looks nice up there, hope the weather stays good for you all week. Cheers Deano
  4. Hi Jani, Love reading your reports from the other side of the world. Great fish in a very rugged looking environment.Good call on the chopper, would not like to walk 40km of that landscape.
  5. Cooks metre jew

    Beautiful fish there Stewie.. Looks like the tomato might be the new go to for a while. See, its not too bad fishing on the weekends with the rest of us working class. Ha. Hard luck Nathan, keep at it. You're not the first or last to take photos of Stewie holding Jewfish in the Cooks.
  6. Soft plastics session

    Absolute champion, and to be releasing the big ones and just keeping a feed. The futures in good hands..
  7. Swano and swordy smack em in the Cooks

    Top morning on the Cooks with Stewie. Just had that feeling! Finally Christened my new Jewie stick. The big bonus was that there were so manyTailor knocking the plastics around we ran low on the usual powerbaits, So we started throwing all sorts of stuff. All the big flatties on something Stew gave me? And 3 of the Jewies on Squidgy Killer Tomato that i bought 2 years ago and never used. Totally different colour, go figure. Me thinks I'll be buying some more,and i reckon there might be a sneaky packet or 3 In Stewies box. Stewies face when he got smoked,priceless. Deano
  8. Hoping for some hairtail

    Oh well, no fish but a nice arvo out on the water. Tried our hardest with numerous baits of pillies, squid, live and slabbed yakkas and tailor but couldn't even raise a bite. There was one first for me, fishing with BAIT in Stewies boat. Tried to make as much mess as i could, But he'd covered everything in plastic.Ha. Yes, JohnDory that headpiece caught me out a few times.
  9. Lures vs bait scenario results

    Yeah mate Id definately get the ecoodas
  10. Hey Wellzy94 Congrats on your PB's with the soft plastics, always a good day on the Cook's with Stew. But MAAATE cooking for him? Cheers Deano.
  11. New trout river (Not even bite)

    Hi Jani, What a beautiful looking spot. I'm sure you'll eventually work out how to get onto the trout. Mate, That backpack, WOW.
  12. First Jewie

    Hey Tara, Congrats on your first Jewie. Pressure was really on with Stewies recent run of success, but you smashed it. Especially after just watching the video, and he's made you hold his phone (TWICE) while you were tight on your first Jew., Beats fishing off the bank waving to him as he motors past. Good on ya. Deano.
  13. Last ice fishing spring 2017

    Hi Jani, Great photos, and I thought it was cold here winter fishing. Good to see the kids are getting into fishing with you. Take care Dean.
  14. My first Jewfish

    Congrats Donna, You were only telling me last week how you were going to tick that one of your list. Gee that didn't take long,easy as. What a great catch. Stewie, great work, that would have been unreal on your bream gear, those ecoodas are unreal. Good on both of you.
  15. On the cooks with the master himself

    Congratulations Jonno on a cracking first Jewie.......on soft plastics too. Always a fun day on the Cooks with Stewie, Laughing that he mentioned food, You'll learn. I tend to keep mine close and hand out a bit at a time, Kinda like a reward system. Ha! Well done boys. Deano.
