    TOP FIVE FOR THE LAST FIVE

    TOP FIVE FOR THE LAST FIVE

    For episode 25 of the podcast we are celebrating in style by going through our 'top five for the last five'. We count down our five most memorable captures on Reel Action TV and give you the backstory as to how and why that fish makes the cut. Guesty has caught some cracking fish over the years, but we put him through the paces to identify five that stand out. The fish he chose weren't necessarily the heaviest or longest, but were caught under pressure, on the first cast, or on a technique that hadn't been done before on TV. This kicks off the first of our 'milestone' episodes, and features some cracking tips as to what things are needed for you to catch that fish of a lifetime!

    Slow Jigging for Reef Species with Sammy Hitzke

    Slow Jigging for Reef Species with Sammy Hitzke

    This week on the Podcast Jono and Guesty are again joined by the man from Bris-vegas, Sammy Hitzke, to discuss slow jigging for all the tasty morsels that live in deep water! In what is the longest episode yet, the boys dive deep into the techniques that Guesty and Sammy have tried and tested over the years to hopefully get you and your mates having more success out on the water. During the Podcast the guys cover a range of topics, which include jig size/colour/shape, what line class is required, the type of rod and reel you should look at investing in, the weather conditions that you should be looking for, and the type of terrain that you want to see appearing on your electronics. As always, there is plenty of banter in this one, with Sammy copping the usual brunt for being a QLD'er and Jono being on the receiving end of a spray for not offering to stick around and clean the boat after a session. All that and more on this episode of the Reel Action Fishing Podcast!

    Chasing Bream on Bait in Winter

    This week on the Podcast Jono and Guesty are back in the studio and focus their attention on the humble bream - the species that kicked off both of the boys fishing apprenticeship's. The team dive into the nuances of chasing bream in winter, and in particular, how to do so using a small hook and a strip of well-presented bait. They discuss everything from where you should be fishing, what hook size and baits you should be buying, the time of the day to be on the water, and as always, finish with a few classic stories of how the mighty bream taught them a few basic lessons as kids which would help them with their fishing in the future. All that and more on this weeks episode of the Reel Action Fishing Podcast.
