G'day Forum,

The names Aaron.
I've been posted to Darwin from QLD for the lasy 3 yrs
and i'm new to kayaking.

One of my favourite types of fishing is off the beach land base.
10mins away from my home is beach with all sorts of species,
Pelagics being one of my favourite,
Sometimes there is crazy busts ups just out of casting distance in this particular spot

Which begins my story...

With a tinny being too much of an annoyance
I opted for the middle man

the kayak :D

I came back from overseas with a picture of buying a big rig for offshore and inshore.
And somehow ended up buying a 2.3m Ocky used for $200 of gumtree 8)

I still go out off shore, up creeks chasing crabs and barra
But I have to admit, i've fallen for the yak.

I don't know how to embed a video

So here is my link to a youtube video
Popping for Queenfish from the Kayak around Darwin's Foreshore

[mod edit: all fixed. Just select the YouTube link once you pasted it in your post, and hit the "tube" button above the text box as you write the post]

Cheers
Aaron

Wen't to Kathriene Gorge last Monday
In the hope of catching my first baz from the yak
Well apparently K is for Kathriene and
K is for Katfish
6 in total all on the troll on stump jumpers

Saw a large freshie within the first 30m paddle.
Great scenery no baz

Anyone on here fished Kathriene Gorge and has anyone hooked a barra

I can see 2 croc's in the bottom pic ;-)

Awesome place,
I spent a bit of time fishing the top end mid 2000 and those bloody catfish drove me mad.
