I LOVE FISHING

Tucker Hardie

“I love fishing because it’s fun and exciting”, explained 7 year old Tucker who was super stoked with his new PB yellowbelly. Measuring 51cm Tucker caught his awesome fish from one of the only two fishing spots he had available to fish in his local LGA during lockdown.

ECO ANGLERS

Jai Baxter

While a recent trip out on the river didn’t produce any fish Jai still managed to get up close and personal with this larger than life Murray cod mural. Super cool, this super-sized cod just might be the lucky charm for Jai’s next fishing adventure.

Five Sun Smart Steps:

Five Sun Smart Steps:

1. Slip on Clothing
Choose clothing that covers as much skin as possible, for example, collared shirts with long sleeves.

2. Slop on SPF 30 (or higher) Broad-spectrum, Water-resistant Sunscreen
Apply a generous amount of sunscreen to clean, dry skin at least 20 minutes before you go outside. Reapply sunscreen every two hours or after swimming or excessive sweating.

3. Slap on a Hat
Choose, a broad-brimmed, legionnaire or bucket style hat which shades your face, nose, neck and ears, which are common sites for skin cancers.

4. Seek Shade
Use trees, built shade structures, or bring your own (such as a sunshade tent)!

5. Slide on Some Sunglasses
Sunglasses and a broad-brimmed hat worn together can reduce UV radiation exposure to the eyes by up to 98%.

SNAPPER

Snapper, or pink snapper as they are known in WA, are a medium-sized demersal fish of the family sparidae, which includes bream.

They range in colour from a pale pink to almost bright red, and juveniles can often sport vibrant blue spots.

Larger models can sometimes have large bumps on their head, giving them the nickname 'knobbies'.

TACKLE SELECTION

Snapper are excellent species to target for the recreational angler and can be caught with a variety of tackle, lures and baits.

Here are some tackle recommendations for your next snapper trip.

Rod: 7’ medium to medium heavy Daiwa Spin Rod

Reel: 3000- 5000 Daiwa Spin Reel

Line: 15-30lb monofilament or PE line

Leader: 16-30lb Flurocarbon Leader

Lures: 5” and 7” Bait Junkie Jerkshad or Kohga Bay Rubber 

Name: Brett Habener
Occupation: Digital & Creative Manager, Daiwa Australia
Age: 35 years old
Age started fishing: 2 years old
Favourite fish to target: Australian Bass
Favourite type of fishing: Flyfishing & Freshwater
Most memorable catches: Spot Tail Bass & Blue Bastard

Why do you fish? 
Fishing has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. It has offered me the opportunity to travel around the world in pursuit of dream captures as well as forge a career path within the fishing industry. From starting out catching my first fish at a Victorian trout farm at the age of 2 years old with my family to hiking the remote mountain rivers of the Solomon Islands with my best mate targeting spot tail bass in recent years, fishing has always been a constant source of my fondest memories.

Who/What inspires you to fish?
My father has always been a mad keen angler and it was his passion for the sport that inspired me when I was young and still does to this day. I loved nothing more than waking up super early with my dad in the freezing cold to go and soak some mudeyes under a float for Trout in Victoria’s western lakes. These days are exactly the same and I love nothing more than gearing up for a trip and heading out early in the morning to go and target some Australian Bass in the Hunter Valley dams west of Sydney on the weekends. Creating lifelong friendships and accomplishing goals is what always keeps me motivated to get outside and go fishing. On weekdays I now have the opportunity to immerse myself in fishing on a daily basis for my job at Daiwa Australia as the Digital and Creative Manager.

What is your next dream catch?
I would love to catch a permit on fly. It is considered the holy grail of Fly Fishing and it is something I have not had the opportunity to do yet. They are extremely spooky and fishing for them is incredibly visual and technical so it will be the ultimate challenge.

Each month we’ll present you with the opportunity to get in touch with your artistic side with our interactive fishing inspired activities.

The Daiwa fishing family is broad and diverse and ranges from the young to the young at heart. For many of us fishing is more than just a weekend activity, it’s a way of life, sometimes a profession, and most notably a deep seated passion.

In our D.Y.F.C ‘Meet the Family’ series we meet and introduce the members of the family that live to fish and are fuelled by the desire to share their passion for the outdoors.
