  1. Ok still no joy with info on any of the forums I have found:confused: Seams to me that no one in MA or RI use computers:icon_scratch: or I just can't find the right place. Anyways I will continue my searching and see what I can find. As said attached are a few more Aussie fish!! Estuary cod caught on a soft plastic These fish get well over 100lb on the deeper reefs. this was a surprise catch for me!! I have caught plenty of whiting on bait but never on a soft plastic meant for a Bream!! Just noticed the dates on some of these pics!! I need to update my online pics:angry3: anyway Bream. probably the most targeted and wide spread fish in Australia. We have been running some competitions here the last few years that have taken off (similar to your bass comps) catching a bag of 5 of these fish. here is a close up and my Personal Best Bream One more... This is a Coral Trout. They usually catch these in Northern Queensland on the Reef. this one I caught was just north of Brisbane and was 17.5lb. they are also excellent eating. Cheers Brandon...
  2. Awesome thanks Ben!! I have a few lures that run around 5 foot so should do the trick:icon_wink: I like the manns and luckcraft lures might get a few of them while I am over there. cheers Brandon...
  3. Awesome thanks for this info Ben!!! once I get over travel lag I will be very keen to have a few early mornings:icon_wink: what size is usually the go for crankbaits? something around 4" be ok?? also how deep would you call a shallow diving lure? 5' or less?? Been looking at dams around the area I will be and Quabbin Reservoir came up. found out I can hire a boat for the day there quite cheap so will probably try and do that one day. is there any hints or tricks or locations on this dam you could tell me about? thanks heaps for your info and quick reply!!! cheers Brandon...
  4. excellent thanks Steve!! will do that, just added that Q to the other post also:icon_wink: Ok here is some pics for you guys now:) 1st one, Barramundi caught in Peter Faust dam. We are stocking a LOT of barra these days in land locked dams on the central- north coast of Queensland. They get very big (this one is considered average at just over a meter!!!). I caught this on a large hard body lure during the early night with a full moon. ok gota post this pic:) this is my old Cruiser on Moreton Island, the Rods in the rocket launchers are what we use here for Tailor (same as bluefish) and any other larger fish from the beach. Below are a couple of average tailor, maybe 2lb-3lb each. Next up is the dog of the estury called a Mangrove Jack. These fish get quite large but you don't tend to catch them much bigger than 8lb in the estury. when they reach this size they move to the off shore reefs to turn into monsters!! We have also stocked a couple of fresh water dams with these fish witch should prove interesting in a few years!!! This fella fell to a soft plastic. This one you guys would call a Jack, We call them Trevally. this one is a little Giant Trevally caught in my local river on a soft plastic. Ok here is our freshwater bass, This one is quite a good size compared to most (also my PB). ok last for now... this is a freshwater Saratoga. I think you guys have something similar over there? anyways they get much bigger than this one and do all sorta of areal displays when hooked. Cheers Brandon...
  5. Thanks for copying this here Steve, Just want to add one more question on top of this. Considering I will be over your way in summer, will the Large mouth bass be taking lures from the surface? Cheers Brandon...
  6. WOW that is a great story!! Gota be happy with that catch!! I would be happy catching a striped bass half that size on my trip over:happy7: cheers Brandon...
  7. Awesome!! thanks for the warm welcome guys, hopefully I will get some info I can use soon! Randy I will make sure I post some pics up here of what I catch for you guys!! I will also post a couple of Aussie fish up soon too:) Thanks for copying it over for me Steve! I will go and find it now and add another post there to bump up my post count:icon_tongue: One more question I just thought of, with the time of year I am heading over, I know its going to be getting into summer, but will it be hot enough to target Large mouth bass on the surface? Cheers Brandon...
  8. Hi guys!!! My name is Brandon and I am an very keen fisherman! the reason I have joined your forum is because I am heading over your way for a 3 week holiday and really want to catch a few fish while I am there:happy8: Anyways Will be in Massachusetts at the start of my hols (5th-16th July) and then in Providence RI from the 17th to the 20th. Not sure if I can ask these questions here, Please tell me the correct forum area if you think I will get a better response please. I really really want to catch a Large mouth bass!!! and a trout or 2 hehe. Will have a renal car while in Massachusetts and will be based in Southbridge. What lakes or rivers should I give a go with a spin and fly rod? and where from shore would be my best chance on said lakes and rivers? I know I need a fishing license and will be getting one b4 I head out. In Providence RI I would like to get out on a cheap 1/2 day charter if possible, from my research there are soooo many that leave from Narragansett bay its confusing:( Don't really need to go offshore, would love to catch a striped bass and Bluefish!! Also my Fiance will be working during this time and I will be bored, so Would like to take my travel rod (7' 2-5kg) and a selection of lures out during the day for a fish from the bank somewhere. Is there any areas around Providence that your not allowed to fish? is there any tips you could share with me as to the best locations to fish from the bank? accessible for someone using public transport only unfortunately:( Was going to post a pic of a nice Barramundi for you to look at but found the 5 post rule:( never mind Will get there soon enough as long as I get some replies to answer cheers Brandon...
