LEARN HOW TO:

CATCH MORE TAILOR

Well-known as a fantastic light tackle sportsfish, tailor are a popular species which can be found in large schools and are often willing to eat a fast-moving lure, making them extremely fun for all ages. Not only do tailor put up a good fight, but they also make a delicious meal when caught fresh.

Measuring up to 80cm in length, tailor can be found along both the East and West coasts of Australia, with beaches, rocky headlands, and estuaries all offering excellent opportunities for targeting these fish. The best times for catching tailor are typically during sunrise and sunset, and with some luck and strategic placement, you could be reeling in a fish with every cast.

In this episode, Guesty teams up with Holly Brown where they head out in the tinnie and target a feisty school of tailor.

CATCH MORE WHITING

As one of the top picks among estuary fish, whiting are a must-try for any light tackle enthusiast. These feisty fighters are not only easy to access, but they also make for a delicious meal when paired with a side of crispy chips.

While whiting can grow up to 45cm in length, the most caught size, ranges from 20cm to 35cm. Any catch over 35cm is considered exceptional. Although many anglers swear by freshly pumped yabbies from the sand flats as the ultimate bait for whiting, it can be a time-consuming process. Additionally, dealing with pesky pickers can make the experience less enjoyable.

Fortunately, there is a solution for consistently catching large whiting without all the hassle – lures, specifically surface lures. In this episode, Guesty and Riley team up to demonstrate how to target whiting on the flats using small poppers and ‘walk the dog’ style lures. Along the way, they share their expertise on surface fishing for whiting, making it easy for anyone to try.

CATCH MORE SALMON

In this episode, Guesty is joined by Andrew and together they set off to target Australian salmon using a variety of lures, sharing their tip and tricks along the way.

CATCH MORE TROUT

Fresh air, crystal clear mountain streams and a hive of activity, it’s all part of the freshwater trout fishing experience and one you need to participate in to really appreciate.
Trout are an introduced species in Australia, however there are wild populations with many variants on offer such as brown trout, rainbow trout & brook trout. A trout larger than 60cm is considered an exceptional catch, and you’ll know all about it when you hook one. Trout fishing if often very visual, you’ll likely see the fish before you hook it. Once hooked, they leap out of the water multiple times trying to throw the hooks.
In this episode, Guesty heads for the hills in NSW to team up with young gun, Stella to see what they can find throwing around their favourite Berkley lures.
