Thanks for the replies.
Hadn't really thought about salt or fresh, I guess salt is closer for most. Depends on who is interested. I'll be happy most places. Next weekend sounds ok for me. I'm open to suggestions on a spot to fish? I usually fish around the northside of Bris.

Hi JD,

I am only new in here and new to Kayaking. So much so that I am taking delivery of my yak this friday. I would be keen for a get together and put some faces to some names as you say but as my experience in yak paddling is very limited at this stage I am not sure If I would get left behind... hehe...

I am one of those unfortunate people that works six days a week most weeks so Sunday's are always best for me. I'm not sure how many unfortunate six day a week sod's are here in Brisbane but maybe a Sunday would show a better turn out???

Although I am on the north side of Bris also I am able to get anywhere where it is organised. Keep us posted and hopefully I will be able to get in amongst the action.

Cheers,

Milan.

Hi Milan
Glad to hear you're getting your new kayak. What are you buying?
Yeah, I understand about the six day week. I've no worries if we leave it for a week or two so as to fit in with as many as possible. Like you I'm only new to this site, so I'm only making suggestions.
Thanks JD

So do we have any takers for this WE? I could go either, but prefer Sunday.

And where? Redcliffe, Brissie River,Pine ????

I will be going yak fishing regardless of whether this gets up and running, but I would prefer to meet some others and put a face to a name and maybe fish somewhere rather than the Brisbane River. :)

Hi all,
Ok, as things stand I'm up for Saturday anytime or Sunday till about 10am. Keen to do something and meet a few people. How about the Pine river.
Early start? 5.30am ish at Dohles Rocks ramp.
Don't mind if this changes, but we have to start somewhere.

JD, I was just about to reply that I would try and join you guys until I looked at the tide for Sund morning.
Thats a pretty low one there, so I will hold off and catch up another time.
Its my flippers you see, touchy bottom-go nowhere...
Cheers,
Jake

Herewith directions

Coming from Brisbane, heading North on M1 (Bruce Highway)
Road forms 4 lanes Just before Pine Rivers Bridge, get in left lane, go past the bridge and see Dohles Rocks/Griffin turn off. Proceed on the turn off, and turn right and keep going straight. When you come to 40Kph signs, you are almost there (looking for boats and Pelicans

Cheers all Andybear :lol:

I wont be there for the paddle, but may just rock up after work and see if anyone is still around
