The owning a boat days are well and truly over These days I prefer freshwater bait fishing, I'm not that keen on saltwater now, I might go to Cunningham pier or Williamstown 2 or 3 times a year. To much cleaning up when I get home. I had a go at Fly fishing years ago, after an hour and catching a big tree that was the end of that. As for over head gear, I just couldn't do anything right. I found it was harder than it looked. Had a go at spinning for a while, got a few fish, and lost heaps of lures. Then I got into coarse fishing and loved it, I was working then and spent quite a few bucks on gear, but it was well worth it. Then health issues stuffed things up and that's when most of my gear got sold or given away. Now it's back to the basics, cheap gear and drowning worms. It may sound funny but I seem to be enjoying my fishing more these days.
