SOME INFO ON ROBBIE : I grew up in country Victoria, I am a young 42 years old, and I have a beautiful family with 3 daughters.
I currently own a Hobie PA14, 2 person Indian canoe, 3.9m savage custom electric boat & a bass boat Triton explorer18 running a 200 V8 merc motor.
My fishing started when I was in Victoria, with like most others, with my dad and pop. We chased trout in the lakes and streams all over Victoria, as well as cod, redfin and yellowbelly. My favourite lakes are lake Purrumbete and Bullen Merri where we would chase chinook salmon & Atlantic salmon.. Bullen Merri is now a bass stocked lake
I came to QLD 15 years ago for work and loved the fishing and weather, so we stayed.
My main target species is bass, and mostly all freshwater species, I do like dabbing in some local saltwater, searching for mangrove jacks, barramundi and of course flathead. I love bank bashing creeks, streams and small ponds, trying my best to avoid ticks, snakes and spiders... hahaha.
My favourite bass go to lure is the trusty HALCO TWISTY. Its my confident bait. I spent a lot more time on the water these days helping others to achieve the enjoyment we have been able to experience in years past.
In time I have learnt to carve and make my own lures with help of great anglers and lure makers. I enjoy tying my own flys and tinkering with the weird techniques out there that are not highly promoted. I currently own the VOODOO LURE and JP LURE brand.
