It’s officially Winter and although the temperature is dropping around the country, the fishing is heating up in a lot of the states. In this month’s newsletter we profile one of The Tackle Warehouse's longest serving team members Gordon Macdonald. Gordon has worked as part of the Tackle Warehouse team for nearly 26 years and is a wealth of fishing knowledge.

Flathead are one of Australia’s most popular sport and table fish and it’s no secret that they love to eat artificial lures. In the last couple of years, anglers around the country have been challenging the preconceived notion that bottom-feeding flathead can only be targeted by bouncing lures across the bottom of estuaries, bays and beaches.
Our 2020 Fishing Vision!
It’s hard to believe we are already in 2020!
To get things started the right way, we’ve asked The Tackle Warehouse crew to share their fishing goals for 2020. One consistent pattern that we see with every good angler is that they set themselves new goals all the time. Whether it’s learning a new technique, targeting a new species or breaking a personal best, setting a goal is the starting point of all great achievements
With yet another successful Flathead Classic on the Gold Coast, we thought we would share some tips on how to target these great sports and table fish. The humble flathead is one of Australia’s favourite sportfish and their willingness to aggressively attack a number of different baits and lure styles makes them a great target in our local estuaries, bays and beaches.
