Vacationing in Australia With a Fishing Boat

Fishing Boat

How long has it been since you have taken a real fishing vacation? With so many beautiful lakes in Australia,  it’s really tough to pick the right place. For fishing and houseboat accommodations , many fishermen prefer Lake Eildon.

For many reasons, Lake Eildon  seems to be the most popular fishing lake in Australia. Lake Eildon is located near Melbourne. Fishing is permitted all year around at Lake Eildon.  Fish such as Murray cod, perch, redfin, and carp can be caught at this lake. However, brown and rainbow trout are released several times a year by a local hatchery. These fish may weigh anywhere from 3 to 5 grams a piece.

Besides fishing, many vacationers come to Lake Elidon  to be able to relax on the lake in their houseboat. With 540 miles of shoreline, Lake Elidon has the perfect spot to dock your houseboat. Currently, Lake Eildon is the home to over 700 houseboats at this time. In addition to houseboats, many vacationers bring their own fishing boats, speed boats, power skies and sail boats.

Fishing from the banks is fine but having a fishing boat to fish from is a wonderful experience. Spending summer vacations on the Lake Eildon with the family can provide enjoyable memories for years to come. The kids and grandkids will also cherish the quality time. So if you have been thinking about purchasing a boat, be sure to choose a boat that will meet your vacationing needs for now and your retirement needs.

For some awesome deals on fishing or house boats, I would encourage you to check out They have used and new fishing boats for sale.  Any of these boats would provide the ultimate Australia  fishing experience. So if you are tired of fishing from the bank, maybe it’s time to buy a boat for your next fishing vacation in Australia.

Lures for the thick of it

While there is more than one way to get to a fat bass that is buried up in the jungle, few methods are more effective than flipping or punching. Both are short-range techniques built around a hard-core fishing system that includes thick line and a stout rod, and any number of lures and rigs designed to slip in and out of thick cover with the skill of a grass snake.

Eventually, your rod collection will grow to the point where it's cost-effective for you to acquire the tools and learn the skills to make slightly advanced repairs, such as replacing a broken line guide. The task does require some special equipment, but if it keeps your favorite rod in the game without having to wait a couple of weeks for a local shop to fix it, the cost is worth the investment. And a few tools still cost less than replacing one of today's specialized high-end rods. You might also consider going together with a fishing buddy to split the cost.

Pro Tips Weekly: Ron Shuffield

10:10 am
The dog days of summer from mid-August to mid-October are tough to fish because it's hard to find a consistent pattern. Grass and other heavy shoreline cover can be good, but some older lakes don't have any. Ledge fishing can be hit or miss because a lot of bass will roam all over the place trying to keep up with schools of shad. But a third pattern, and one of my favorites, is to ease down a bank fishing for wolfpack bass when they're in the shallows hunting for bedding bream.
