Rodney Pacitti isn’t so much a hard-core sportfisher, but an adventure fisher who island hopes in small boats, fished offshore from kayaks and does solo survival trips where lure-caught fish are his main food source. In todays episode we talk through this, but also spend some time exploring the success factors for fishing YouTubers.
Joey Urquhart grew up fishing the Richmond River system, progressed to tournament angling and then became an award winning hand-crafted lure maker. He still lives near the river and fishes it frequently, so there are not too many more qualified to take us onto these waters in search of bass!
Spring bass fishing can be challenging but rewarding, with fishing moving back and forth between deeper and shallower environments. This means they can be taken on everything from blades and jigs through to soft plastics and jerkbaits. Tournament Gun Keeghan Painter spends todays episode going through five of his favourite spring bass fishing haunts, helping us to understand how each one fishes as the weather starts to warm.
The NSW Northern coastline is a superb destination for a great many prized fishing species, but few are so revered as the jewfish. Definitely one the country’s more challenging fish species on lures, it’s understandable that many keen jewfish anglers guard their knowledge closely. Today’s guest Josh Annand isn’t one of those though. He came onboard the ALF podcast to share what he’s learned about targeting jewfish on lures from the stones – and he didn’t hold back.
Chasing threadfin salmon is tons of fun at the best of times, but when it’s done from a kayak in a busy port and the fish are frequently metre plus specimens, it’s downright exhilarating. Today I chat with Yakhunter Australia founder Luke Lispet about his consistent success catching quality threadies from the Brisbane River out of a kayak. Even if those not into kayak fishing will find this conversation inspiring, but for the keen yak fishers it’s definitely one not to miss!
Every time I interview Steve Riley about fishing the Exmouth area I get blown away by the opportunities on offer, but I think this interview could be my favourite so far. Steve spills the beans on five land-based fishing spots that are available to visiting anglers during spring. In the course of the conversation we cover everything from bream and whiting to tuna, reef species and pelagics including monster GT from the beach. What a destination!
