VHF Radio Course

Jun 26, 2016 - 4:07 PM - by Mad Fish
Does everyone realise that you need a VHF license to operate a VHF radio ? I've been fishing in different forms for over 40 years and didn't know.. The radio can be installed in your boat as it is covered under the Marine ship safety license however the operator needs a separate license. Just spent a great day down at Coast Guard Redcliffe at Scarborough. Throughly enjoyable, picked up a heap of info and some funny stories from Doug and Peter who ran the course. Lunch was a nice B-B-Que and even got a tour of the base, the radio room and one of the rescue boats thrown in. Its a real eye opener when you realise what goes on behind the scenes and how much it costs for this dedicated bunch of volunteer men and women to provide the service a lot of us take for granted. Give them a call they run the courses on a regular basis. It's a great day. Thank you Coast Guard. ... [Read More]

Cairns in July / Aug

Jun 15, 2016 - 11:34 AM - by NAGG
Hi All

I'm looking to head up to Cairns for a bit of a reccy for our upcoming trip to Tinaroo & I thought I might as well make the most of it & go far a fish (in the salt)

Can anyone recommend a decent charter operator for a trip into the briny ...... A bit of sport fishing for what ever are around at that time of year ( poppers for GTs - chase spaniards etc) .... not overly fussed - just want to have a fish

appreciate your help

We are Still there to respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we can have a vessel on the water within minutes of a call.

Dont forget to logon with your local Coast Guard or VMR whenever you head out on the water, its free and ensures there is always someone looking out for you.

Good on fisheries for the catching the grub.
But i hope they use that expensive looking laser tape measure for more than measuring nets.
