Catching bass from a kayak using a depth sounder

Backyard Bassing

November 30, 2018

I’ve been out chasing bass four times in the last ten days. Can’t recommend the experience too highly because it ticks so many boxes: local spots – meaning quick to get to, meaning you have time for a quick session after work – now that daylight saving has arrived

Chasing Kingfish Off Sydney

Chasing Kingfish Off Sydney

November 22, 2018

From a few years ago but only discovered last month. Keen Sydney fisho and expert photographer James Ibrahim recorded his impressions of a typical day offshore.

Game Fishing with Bent Butt Rods

October 13, 2018

The big plus with a bent butt rod is mechanical advantage. Whoever invented them is a genius because the angle allows you to drop your rod bucket a little lower, bringing the reel in closer to your body and giving a mechanical advantage you can’t get, with a straight butt rod.

Introducing our new car and boat rod holder. Sure, you’ve seen various models before. But I’m guessing most of those required drilling into the car roof lining? Or in some other way, marking the car interior. Not ours. We use powerful suction caps to hold the rod rack in place.
