Brilliant Blades



Blades would have to be one of my favourite lure presentations. This is one extremely versatile piece of fishing weaponry that is guaranteed to catch fish all year round. With 3 different tow points, the Atomic Hardz Metalz and Megabass Blading x range are ideal for all fishing styles. I typically keep it simple and […]

Good Vibrations….



by Luke Galea Lately I have been having an absolute ball on blades/vibes, catching a wide array of estuary species. To be honest, I hadn’t used them all too often for fear of snagging up, instead I usually opted to tie on a soft plastic instead as I deemed them to be more sacrificial. However, […]

Spring, It’s the Season for Gold



by Chris Frith With winter behind us, albeit a very mild one, you cannot help but feel at least a little excited about the next couple of months of targeting yellowbelly in our western waterways. Spring certainly is the season that memorable yellowbelly catches are made, with the spawning activity making these gems of the […]

Team Atomic Gamakatsu take 2nd at Metung



By Paul Malov Last weekend saw us head down to the quiet town of Metung, Victoria for the third round of the Vic Bream Classic series. With gale force winds predicted, the entire field of 54 teams was relegated to fishing the three rivers (Tambo/Nicholson and Mitchell) for the weekend. From previous experience, the Nicholson […]

Light line Victorian tuna action

Exploring Skinny Water



by Zac Skyring It pays to never pass up skinny water. Some of the most unlikely looking sections of creeks can produce the biggest surprises. Those spots where you think would not be possible to hold any fish of substance can occasionally blow you away. There was a session in the far upper reaches of […]

Power fishing for black bream



by Paul Malov “Power fishing” isn’t a term you’d often associate with fishing for black bream. Normally we would be talking about ultra light lines, long leaders and lightly weighted, natural looking presentations, however I threw all that out the window on a recent trip to East Gippsland Victoria. Maybe I have just been watching […]

Targeting Tricky Toga



by Luke Galea There could be no arguing that Saratoga would be one of the most spectacular looking freshwater fish there are. Their appearance verges on prehistoric and to be honest, they would not look out of place swimming around with the dinosaurs. Every scale is marked with unique red/brown spots like an Albert Nemertjira […]

Vic Snapper Luring



by Dan Mackrell At the end of each year, it seems that the majority of anglers living in Victoria immediately switch their attention to chasing Snapper. These fish enter the bays in huge numbers around this time of year to feed up and spawn. It truly amazes me how popular Snapper fishing is in Victoria […]
