My name is Jason and I absolutely live and breathe kayak fishing. I now call Brisbane home and I am originally from the home of the Might Murray Cod, Mildura, Victoria. (I’m sure that line will draw some conjecture).
I spent my childhood on the banks of the Murray River drowning worms and having a blastwith my mates. This style of fishing soon gave way to trolling large ʻstump jumper’ lures in the hope of snagging the magic metre green monster. Just for the record, I am yet to achieve this goal, my personal best is just over 80cm.
I spent several years living in Cairns and I enjoyed chasing JP, Barra and any other fish foolish enough to engulf my presentation.
I vividly remember the first time I fished from a kayak, I was amazed at the stealth like qualities, serenity and the areas that were now accessible to me as a fisherman. To me, the kayak is the ultimate fishing platform, everything else is a compromise.
I am drawn more toward freshwater fishing and I have recently welcomed a new addiction, BASS fishing. I am what would be regarded as a bass “newbie” and I have so much tolearn about this fascinating creature but what I do know is this fish has incredible qualities and pound for pound must be considered one of the toughest fighters in the water.
I am humbled and excited to join the Freak Sports crew and I hope you enjoy sharing my experiences.
See you on the water and keep yakkin’
