Go For Broke - First blog update!

Welcome all to our new Go For Broke blog site. On this site we will try and keep everyone informed of our trips and things going on with the team! We are a group of mates that go back many years, we have known each other for over 20 years and our passion for fishing has grown with the friendship!

Fishing has been a part of my life ever since I can remember! Growing up as a young boy in the northern suburbs of Melbourne I used to wait for the weekends for our family fishing trips.. jumping in the car with the family and Dad taking us down to the coast somewhere to drop a line in. We quickly learnt that fishing is not about heading out and catching fish, but it’s about the fun you have while fishing. A group of mates or family heading out and coming back with memories that will last you a life time…something that I want to pass down to my kids in the future!

Dad taught us from a young age that if we wanted something we had to earn it. I remember as a young kid wanting my own fishing rod.. even though Dad had heaps I wanted my own, so I saved up all my money and my first rod was a Jarvis Walker combo bought from K-Mart.. I was the happiest kid in the world! That weekend Dad took us down to Lorne and we fished the pier.. I caught my first fish on that rod.. it was only a grass whiting but a memory I will never forget..

All grown up now and fishing is a strong passion with the whole team. Having fished up and down the east coast and south west coat we love exploring new areas and having new challenges! We really hope you like our updates and photos and we’ll try and keep you entertained with our videos!

Here are some of our previous catches.. and until next time tight lines!
