New #fishthatsnag#video has been uploaded to my #youtubechannel folks - be sure to check it out.
Just copy and paste this url into your search browser - https://youtu.be/O59ZY0Tu9xs - or follow the link in my bio.
In this video I test the theory that - where you find one flathead you will find more - I go searching for a gravel patch and fish it using soft plastic lures, I end up catching, cleaning and filleting a nice feed of flathead on the Fraser Coast, Australia.
G'Day Folks - I have had quite a few questions from people asking if Tiger Squid can be caught on the Fraser Coast from land based locations. The answer is yes..... and if you need proof, the below photo was taken just a few days ago from a land based location in Hervey Bay. This serve of fresh calamari fell to a #Yakamito PX squid jig which you can grab from any Compleat Angler store including Camping World & Compleat Angler Maryborough.
I am busily working on a short #youTube#video containing plenty of tips and tricks to help you catch a delicious Tiger Squid and am hoping to have it uploaded by this coming weekend.
G'Day Folks - Well after asking for your feedback and after compiling the results, the message was loud and clear. The final result (see above) is now available for purchase for only $24.99 + postage. There are a few ways in which you can order yours.
1. You can visit my #Facebook page & you can hit the shop tab on the left hand side of the Facebook page.
2. Visit the Fish That Snag website by following this URL -
3. Visit the Fishing Bandit Store by following this URL - https://thefishingbandit.com/
They all lead to the same place, but if you have any problems just message me.
Thanks for your support folks, I really appreciate it, and once again I really do hope to see you all out on the water one day.
WOW - It is that time of year again. Unfortunately this years #birthday wont see me #fishing like last year - which you can watch in the below #YouTube#video - Instead, I was awoken by my two boys crash tackling me before I had even made it out of bed. Today, I will be spending the day in the office, working on a couple of secret new ideas which I hope, can take Fish That Snag with Luke to another level over the next 12 months. And then, after picking the boys up from school, my wonderful #family & I are going to indulge with dinner at our favourite local restaurant - Two Ducks Cafe' & Asian Grocery - 😀👌
Of course, I am also reflecting & looking back at what has been achieved since the below - Birthday Bash - video was uploaded. Which is lots - NONE of which, would have been possible without the support that you have all gifted me. So I want to say a massive thank you to everyone, each comment, like, share, donation & subscriber may seem insignificant to you, but it does make a huge difference for me & I truly appreciate it.
I also want to thank my sponsors & publishers. I hope that the work I have put in over the last 12 months has helped in some way, it has been & continues to be an adventurous learning curve, so thank you.
My approach in using sponsor gear is very simple, I use it & I tend to abuse it, if it works & survives then I promote it. So, you can rest assured that anything I promote through my social media platforms actually does work & is worth your time in having a look at & trying yourselves.
Sorry for the long post folks but I feel saying thank you is very important, I really hope you have gained something from what I have produced over the last 12 months & I hope I can gift you with more during the next 12 months of #adventure Please stay safe & as always I hope to one day meet each & every one of you out on the water.

Absolutely awesome, spectacular day out on the water. #herveybay#fishingfrasercoast is really turning the weather on. The best thing I have heard in a while was said to me today, that was "where is my rod, I want to fish". I only packed three rods thinking the boys would get bored and head off exploring and Gen could use one of those. But, no, everyone just wanted to cast today, even managed a nice flathead. I guess 'Family that fishes together, stays together!'.
G'Day Folks - Looking forward to the wind going away & getting stuck into some #fishing (aka the photo below).
Also, thought I would let you know that I have joined Camping World & Compleat Angler Maryborough as a casual team member & will be in there for a few weekends a month, so if you are in the area, stop in & say g'day !! Stay safe over the holidays folks, especially on the roads, take those breaks when driving. It is no good rushing to get to the ramp, driving fatigued & never actually getting in the water because something bad happens. An old saying from my Army days - 'Slow is Fast & Fast is Slow', let that one sink in for a bit.
Finally - remember to log on & off with VMR, when everything goes to custard they are a dedicated team who, if it is safe, will come & help !! #camping#boating#adventure#fishingfrasercoast#visitfrasercoast#fishthatsnag#fishingfrasercoast#visitfrasercoast#quintrex#evinrude

#herveybay is really turning it on at the moment, there are tuna schools everywhere & they are a great species to test gear on & that is what the last few days have been about. This tuna is pinned beautifully by the standard assist hooks that come with the #Austackle KingStik. I have been throwing these sinking stick baits at anything that moves & without fail it is landing fish after fish. Do yourself a favour & great a couple.
Check them out here - http://www.austackle.com/lures/king-stik/
My tuna chasing rig comprises a Austackle 4500 Verto spinning reel, mounted on a 4-7kg Austackle Masterclass Rod. Spooled with 15lb Platypus Fishing Lines Platinum+ Braid leading to a rod length of Platypus Fishing Lines - US 30lb Stealth Leader.
