There’s more than one way to skin a flathead, and the same goes for just about any table fish you’re likely to encounter in Australian waters. With the right gear, and a little practice, you’ll be prepping five-star, fresh caught seafood dinners in no time!
Many of the tastiest table fish caught in the country, both in the tropical north and the cooler south, are demersal fish loosely referred to as ‘reefies’, most of which are well within range of trailer boat fishos equipped with basic bait fishing tackle.
Learning to fish for wild brown and rainbow trout is a challenging pursuit, one that will see you visit some of the most beautiful landscapes and waterways in the country.
There are two types of fishermen, those who are simply in it for a fresh feed of fish, and those who view angling as a continuous pursuit of knowledge.
Learning to catch and present your own fresh live baits is one of the fastest and most sure-fire ways to take your fishing to the next level.
As far as fighting fish go, there’s no more worthy opponent than the mighty barramundi. They grow to epic proportions, slink like silver ghosts through croc-infested swamps, and charge like wounded bulls when hooked.
