I have not done the course, but I know Wayne Smith personally.
Wayne is the real deal. He is just a tiny bit compulsive. :lol: He has honed every part of snapper fishing to a very pointy end.
The main reason I would not do his course is because it would turn snapper fishing into snapper shopping and that would be boring. :(
P.S. He has told me none of his secrets nor would I ask as I want to find out for myself.
Regards,
Mark

He very generously gave me a few tips a couple of years back and the word has got around.
Jon the garbo is a fishing magician.

Any tips for the mortals?

I could give you some tips but then I would be forced to kill you by the Secret Society of Snapper Masters. :lol:

Thats really unfair.....

Dunny is bastard, thats true and Drew is mostly a bastard much of the time, and I'm a bit of a bastard occasionally, but Squidley is not a bastard at all - he seems quite a nice bloke.

Andy, I am not sure about Squidley not being a bastard?
I think some of his clever posts, like the one above, would qualify him as a smart bastard or at least a sly bastard. :lol:

Although I was catching snapper before it became cool ;-)


Ah yes Kelvin, I can still picture that first fish... I may be wrong but did you catch it inside the blocks at Glenelg two and a half years ago? Whatever the case, it certainly impressed me.

I took that "Yellowfin Whiting Friend" to be the one and only Kelvin - because, yes, I too recall Kelvin's first metro snapper - an April catch in 2008 - followed by a couple in April 2010. And info he provided in his posts helped me on first two metro snaps - also April 2010. And so we learn't from what Kelvin started. He also taught Drew how to catch YFW !
