11 years ago today I married this keeper. I say 'keeper' after reading a few FaceBook meme's which say things like - "A real woman won't stop you from going fishing, she will come with you and out fish you every time". As you can see from the photo's, that has been the case on more than one occasion. I don't know how you put up with me dear, but thank you. #boating #adventure #fishingfrasercoast #fishing #

1 Year Ago.... WOW time flies & what a journey it has been.... so far !! By the way the same pair of #Spotters are still going strong, no cracks, chips or damage & I can assure you, I have been hard on them.

G'Day Folks - I love this time of year, the water temp has really dropped & the winter species are in the bay. The change up from the summer norm is always interesting. I was casting an Austackle KingStik across a shallow ledge where a large pressure point was churning up the water. Usually I would expect a queenfish or some sort of trevally to smash the lure quite quickly, but instead this little fella jumped on it. 
The water was so clear & with my Spotters Sunglasses Nexus mirror lenses I could clearly see a couple of his mates with him as I pulled him along side the boat, unfortunately they were a lot larger, so I had managed the baby of the school. 
He pulled hard but was no match for 15lb Platypus Fishing Lines Platinum + braid with a 20lb Platypus Fishing Lines - US Stealth Fluorocarbon leader. After a few quick photo's he was released & swam away strong, hopefully to grow bigger & meaner.
Seems my new Bent Tips Clothing & Accessories hat is proving extra lucky out on the water!

First #fish to be measured on the new Fish That Snag with Luke custom brag mat from PAINT is DEAD - Custom Brag Mats a huge thanks to Alex Smith for his work. The mat has now been ' slimed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ ' .

Make sure you check out his FaceBook page and give it a 'like' & of course his work is well worth a few dollars treating yourself to your own fully customised or a partial customised brag mat.

All the best folks.

After work, the water was simply too enticing. I asked the boys what they wanted to do for the afternoon, the answer was a very vocal " #fishing " 😁😁 So, away we went for a few hours with Liam managing to find a gorgeous little bartail Flathead. We were then treated to a spectacular sunset as we made our way back to the harbour.

G'Day Folks - T'was a tad damp while #fishing today, but I can report that Flathead are gathering in large numbers currently, especially around creek mouths. We managed a good number of specimens today with none diving below legal size, even managed to entice this healthy 70cm girl to the boat for a quick photo before an easy release.

If you are heading out on the water this weekend & chasing a feed, then this may help.

We used a couple of lure types with grubs in the 2.5 to 3 inch range working best, lightly weighted & both bright and natural colours caught #fish Platypus Fishing Lines Super 100 in 10lb combined with 8lb Platypus Fishing Lines - US P8 braid did the trick, mounted on the Austackle Masterclass 2-5kg rod with M2500 reel combo.

Or maybe, just maybe, it was my new lucky Bent Tips Clothing & Accessories hat 😁😁 If you are after any tips, I will be in the Camping World & Compleat Angler Maryborough shop this weekend, so stop in and say G'Day.

All the best folks & please remember to click on that 'like' button.

A tasty but annoying by-catch while jigging for reefies 🎣πŸ’₯🐟😁😁😁 #fishingfrasercoast #fishinglife #fishing #australia #downunder #outdoors #boating #saltlife
Another lizard pinned !! 🎣πŸ’₯πŸŸπŸ‘πŸ˜ on the #Austackle Fishy Thing 85mm in Bondi Camo, mounted on a Deep Trix jig head.
Question Time Folks - Can you see the leader line to the jig head? And no, I have not edited or removed it from the photo, If not, blame #Platypus  Super 100 multi-polymer nylon mono-filament !! If you would like to give it a try, head into Camping World & Compleat Angler Maryborough tomorrow morning & I will help you select the perfect weight / size for your outfit.

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 - πŸ˜€πŸ‘Œ
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.
Cheers

I never get sick of chasing Flathead & they seem to be gathering in greater numbers of late. This specimen was exceptionally healthy. Take a guess at the lure name !! #fishing #adventure #fishingfrasercoast #boating #fishinglife

You will have your own customised brag mat... Go on treat yourself !! Now if only the wind would play the game so I can go #fishing & get some slime on the new mat..... #adventure #outdoors #fishingfrasercoast

Beanie, Ugg Boots & Jacket, YEP !! Winter is here.... Whenever I find a patch of these guys I quickly switch to 4lb Platypus Fishing Lines Super Braid spooled on a Austackle 2000 sized Verto spinning reel, adjust the drag & then let the fun begin !! So much fun on light gear.

WOW it was cold on the water this morning...... Looks like we have some strong winds forecast for the next few days. So, I decided to head out early this morning & get my fishing fix before the weather strikes. Today, I really wanted to focus on getting back to my favourite bread and butter #fishing so I spent a few hours exploring a few skinny creek mouths along the western side of #FraserIsland which I have not fished in a few months & found a range of species willing to strike my lure. 
This healthy 60cm flathead struck the Austackle 85mm Fishy Thing in Bondi Camo colour from the #Austackle Tuffies Range of soft plastics. Mounted on a 1/4oz Austackle Deep Trix jighead, tied to 10lb Platypus Fishing Lines Stealth Leader with a double uni knot to 8lb Platypus Fishing Lines - US P8 braid.
You can find these products at the Anglers Den in Hervey Bay & Freedom Fishing Supplies in Maryborough. If you are not on the #fishingfrasercoast check out the Austackle & Platypus websites to find a stockist near you, here are the links.

No filter required, guess where? My gorgeous wife & I spent a number of years living in Darwin, back in my Army days. One of the highlights of which was watching the #sunset over water, especially while sipping champagne after wandering the #mindilbeachmarkets After leaving the #nt we thought it would be a while until we witnessed a #sunset as beautiful. That is until we discovered #fraserisland & #platypusbay on the #frasercoast #fishingfrasercoast on this occasion we witnessed a gorgeous sunset just prior to a spectacular evening #boat run, under clear skies & a blanket of #stars from #wathumbacreek back to #urangan boat harbour. #outdoors #adventure #fishing #fishinglife #getoutthere #fishthatsnag
