  10. Land based fishing in the tropics

    Hi Guys I've got a couple of trips happening over the next 12 months to Qld and N.T. and as I've never fished up the top end before I was wondering what sort of gear I should take. In September I'm off to Rollingstone about 60 odd kay North of Towsville, will be L.B. fishing the beach and creek mouth and hopefully get my first Barra then in May next year I'm off to Kakadu, Mary River, Darwin and Litchfield N.P. again I'll be land based so any tips on set ups, rigs, baits or lures would be much appreciated. Hopefully I'll tick catching a barra off the bucket list and avoid becoming croc bait. Cheers Rob
  11. Help targeting Trout

    Thanks all Geoff I'm off next weekend not this weekend so fingers crossed the weather improves by then, I'm also spending some time in the brindabellas around Flea creek and McIntyres hut along the Goodradigbee River so I may do better there as long as its not too wet and the river is too high, I've heard the carp have become a bit of a problem around Wee Jasper however I was also lead to believe that fisheries have been re stocking the waters around there with trout so never know I may get lucky if not some great 4wding to be had in the brindies that I'm sure will compensate

  14. Help targeting Trout

    Hey All Heading down to Wee Jasper and the Brindies next weekend on a 4wd weekend and thought I'd have a go at catching my first trout. I'm a saltie when it comes to fishing and have no idea how to tackle these fellas.Is my plastics set up I use on bream and flatties going to be alright, should I be using braid or mono and do I use plastics, metals or bait. An old fella told me little hooks and worms but that was as specific as he got. Any advise would be appreciated Cheers Rob
