Hi Shayne a warm welcome to the forum. i loved Brisbane when i was there a few years ago. great to visit the Gold coast and Surfers paridise from there. with plenty of fishing close at hand. hope you enjoy the forum.
Took a local state politician fishing with a mate a little while back, after we helped her catch the first ten Bass I had a bit of a cast myself. The photo is of a passable Golden Perch, roughly 20 odd inches long and around 4 lbs. Best I've heard of lately was around 14lbs, so not that fantastic but still fun on 3 kilo string around the snags.
