  1. My advice is pack as light as possible, keep it simple and take as little as you can. You run out of room pretty quickly on a kayak. I take 1 bag which I keep behind my seat, before I set off I put my single box of lures and ruler under my seat (Hobie) and I store my pliers in a side pocket. Net goes behind the seat too, with wallet and keys in the hatch between my legs. So all I have on deck in front of me really is a rod - in your case it’d be a rod and a paddle.
  2. Most of my fishing is with lures, however when I was beach fishing on the south coast you couldn’t go past live blood worms, they just caught everything. More recently when going on family holidays and not knowing if I was going to have a chance to wet a line, not being able to store fresh bait, or have the time to find fresh bait locally, I gave those dynabait freeze dried bloodworms a go. I was surprised how well they stayed on the hook and how effective they were. They’re reasonably cheap and worth a go before you consider forking out a couple of dollars per live worm. https://www.dynabait.com.au/product/saltwater-bait/dynabait-blood-worms-ultimative-flathead-fish-bait/ Give these a go at your usual spots and see if your success rate increases, if not then I’d suggest getting on google maps and finding other accessible spots to try.
  3. I did well on the whiting up there off the beach, just using those freeze dried beach worms.
  4. Just received my Fishing World monthly newsletter, and thought this was a timely article… http://www.fishingworld.com.au/news/carp-orgies-herpes-and-the-smell-of-rotten-fish?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Newsletter - 24 Sep 2021&utm_content=Newsletter - 24 Sep 2021+CID_9940e124e9ce1ba6206b3c0d237a6a16&utm_source=Email marketing software&utm_term=Carp orgies herpes and the smell of rotten fish
  5. I actually think basic signage around waterways would go a long way. Showing what a carp looks like, how big they grow, the harm they do, the reasons it’s encouraged to remove them from the waterways and a “how to” dispose of them correctly. I also think carp should be used to help promote the sport, get people into fishing, and teach them how to fish responsibly from the get go. Carp are relatively easy to catch, they grow huge and they fight reasonably hard. We all know that early success in fishing is usually what gets people hooked. I don’t think we’ll ever fish them out, but as I said before, we have to make the best of the crappy situation we’ve gotten ourselves into by introducing these pests, and if we can help reduce numbers even in a small way then that should be considered a bonus.
  6. Nice one! I’m dying to get out and hit the bass as soon as the lockdown is lifted!
  7. I hate the idea of introducing another species to eradicate an already out of control introduced species. Sometimes you’ve gotta quit while you’re ahead and just accept that we have to live with the mistakes of the past. I can just see us ending up with freshwater fisheries full of carp and pike. No more freshwater natives. My personal opinion, not here to argue for or against.
  8. I never thought it was in NSW. Always thought VIC were the only state with the “no release” laws.
  9. Nice one! Very jealous, as my bass water is all outside of my 5km zone and I’m dying to get out. Thanks for posting the report, at least I can live vicariously through you both!
  10. Whatever bass water I can get to. I’ll be socially distancing by choice, quiet creek, hopefully not see a soul, don’t even mind if I catch a fish. My focus will be getting away from high density living and out into some space with a view where I can breathe some fresh air and start to feel normal again
  11. Was a pleasure to be part of it @Flop! I suggest everyone get involved, if you can’t get out and fish during lockdown, it’s nice to at least have someone to chat to about fishing 😂.
  12. My first Father’s Day this year, you’ve set the bar very high for my wife, thanks!
  13. I got a Hobie and can’t recommend it enough. I bought the Sport brand new, it’s essentially a shorter version of the outback, and is perfect for small creek bass fishing which is what I use it for. Plenty of speed, steers well, vantage seat is a godsend, I cannot speak highly enough of their products.
  14. I’m with you Jordy. If it was spring or summer it would be great though because all of the picnicking families and kayakers wouldn’t be at my usual local Bass spot.
  15. I use these, they come in various sizes and are cheap enough https://www.dinga.com.au/products/owner-treble-covers-suits-trebles-14-10-xxxsm-bag-1241642
