The J-Files

Andrew Mayo opens the vault to one of angling’s most challenging and all-consuming pursuits — spinning for jewfish from the ocean rocks and headlands.

Wild West Adventure

FishLife staffer David Granville relives a few weeks on the road with the All 4 Adventure team as they tackled the Western Australian coastline by 4WD, boat and buggy.

Wake ‘Em Up

Wake baits are the latest ‘big thing’ to hit Murray cod fishing, and they’re literally making waves across the freshwater scene. However, as Starlo explains, the new favourites build on a long lineage of serious surface lures over the evolution of our inland sport fishery.

Surf Simplified

Beach fishing doesn’t have to mean big, heavy rods and old school tactics. As Jamie Robley explains, a little fine tuning can bring the surf fishing experience up to the minute.

Snapper Slammer

The Dave Irvine Memorial Snapper Classic has been run and won for another year. David Granville fished the event with Team PENN and tried out some of the new Slammer III reels.

A Beast Is Born

FishLife editor Scott Amon has an exciting new fishing platform – a Beastmaster Boats Snubby Pro 500F. He reckons this Australian hand-built beauty is a work of art and the perfect fit for his current fishing needs.
