Hi All i am just looking for a good spot to camp and fish over the weekend, we have been to the howqua and jamieson so we are looking for a new area.

Does anyone have anywhere they can recommend with some good fish to catch :)

Thanks

Joe

Too right Terra. As much as I would love to tell where the great spots are, that would only lead to me finding 50 people there next time I go.
A classic example is Rex Hunt was filmed catching fish at Port Albert & in the following months the numbers of fisherman in the area increased 10 times to the point there was road rage at the boat ramp :-))
All I can suggest Joe is to get into the less accessable parts of the rivers in the area.
Cheers Craig.............

Don't punish the messenger..! I ain't no fisherman, but I sure as hell know they cherish their good spots. I'm sure you will get some tips on the drive up to where you go, at the local bait shop or servo with bait.

When you said north east I thought you meant the real north-east, Cooktown :-)
Sorry I can't help you

No worries, you'll never get it out of the water :)
After a few fishing trips to the Cape, I stopped fishing at all down here. The fish I used to catch here are used as bait up there !
Down here its a matter of trying to catch a fish. Up there its a matter of what you're going to catch I rekkon :))
