Fishing with Crappie Jigs
1st January 2006- SportfishWorld/SportfishWorld /SportfishWorld/SportfishWorld Feature Article
I thought that crappie jigs deserved a special mention within these pages. These versatile lures have accounted for more than twenty different species of fish for me. I became a fan of the cheap, chartreusse-colored crappie jig in the early 1980's and bought them by the bagfull. Back in Perth I caug... Bob Fisher

4WD'ing Tidal Creeks in the Pilbara
15th September 2005- Australia/Western Australia /Pilbara Region/Port Hedland
A picture tells a thousand words. That’s what they say but when I look at the picture of the $30,000 100 Series Landcruiser, belly deep in mud, surrounded by salt water and mullet all I can do is cringe. The saltwater creeks that wind their way into the mangroves and mudflats around the Pilbara are ... Shane Baker

Port Hedland Queenfish
31st March 2005- Australia/Western Australia /Pilbara Region/Port Hedland
Something had noticed the erratic activity of the mullet attached to the end of my line and utterly inhaled it.

A generous sized Queenie burst into a display of mind blowing aerobatics as it tried to free itself from the sting of my 5/0 chemically sharpened hook”.

This could ... Shane Baker

Port Hedland Barramundi Fishing
1st January 2005- Australia/Western Australia /Pilbara Region/Port Hedland
One of the most exiting sportfish which is also regarded highly as a quality eating fish is the Barramundi. Plenty of awesome fish have been caught in Hedlands creeks of late with the odd fish even turning up on the spoil bank. A few people have told me what they consider to be the best way to get i...

The pickers were rampant so regular bait changes were the go. Mulloway don't usual... Shane Baker

Prior to it's closure in 1978, the Albany Whaling Station was the last one operating in the country. Bob Fisher
