Great Times on the Water with our Mates

The crew from Evolution Boats went fishing off Mt Martha recently and had a great day showing us rookie's how to catch snapper and squid.

Here's some great, simple to follow tips that led to a nice 3.5kg snapper the boys caught just off Mt Martha in Port Phillip Bay. 

Great job boys, just goes to show life's better with a boat.


Fishing Tips with 11yo Jamie

Avid young fisherman Jamie and his parents and sister love fishing. They've been doing it as a family for about two years since getting into boating. It's a great, fun, family adventure as they explore Victoria's waterways.

In this little video 11 year old Jamie shows us the basics of how to bait a pilchard while fishing for gummy sharks and snapper just of Rye in Port Phillip Bay.

This is just another example of why we all agree, life's better with a boat.


Kayak Fishing with James

Bumped into James this weekend out fishing on his Kayak. Great story actually.

We we're all out fishing and just started chatting and he told us that he sold his boat (when the new baby came into the world, so we'll accept that one) but he had to keep out on the water.


Mitch hooks his first Snapper thanks to Paul Carter

Our resident fishing guru Paul Carter promised one of our team he'd be able to teach his son, Mitch, to catch a snapper. This awesome little video made a dad with a camera very proud. See more here. Great day on the water with Mitch and Paul Carter. Love it.


How to Fillet Whiting with our mate Matt

It's one thing to catch the fish, but what do we do then.

Well Matt's come to the rescue. Our team went fishing with the boys from Bar Crusher this morning in the beautiful Western Port just off Hastings and we pulled in about a dozen whiting all before it was time to go to work.

In this little video Matt show's us how to fillet a whiting. Looks easy enough, so what's stopping you.

Get out on the water, take a mate or take your family and go catch some whiting because life certainly is better with a boat.


Faster Anchoring can Increase Your Catch

Have you ever wanted to just go fishing, on your own, some peace and quiet for a couple of hours. Then the thought of dropping the anchor and pulling it back up turns you off?

Well, boating can be really simple if you use the right gear. Consider an anchor winch.

As part of our Life's Better with a Boat series Nick Savva takes us through how easy it is to drop and raise and anchor with his Savwich. Made right here in Melbourne.

Great time's ahead. Let's all go fishing.


Adrian love his Boat and loves his Fishing

Adrian loves his boat, loves his Savwinch and above all loves his fishing.

We bumped into Adrian just off Altona the other day and he had a lot of nice things to say about how he loves boating.
