Following on from our recent review of the Pro+ from Deeper, we now turn our attentions to the latest version, the CHIRP+, which was launched in early 2019. Inevitably, most anglers want to know what exactly the main differences are between these two castable echo sounders from the Lithuanian company.
Happy Australia Day everyone! The My Catch Australia Team trekked it up to the Bli Bli Barra Park on the Sunshine Coast on Sunday. We arrived there at 9.30am and was let in a little early by the very helpful staff onsite. The staff onsite were quick to brief us on the best tactics to use to catch their famous Barramundi. As we were soon to find out these fish are not your ordinary Barra and the day was a lot more challenging than originally thought. The team started off by casting out a variety of hard and soft plastic lures. We had a few bumps and hits but strangely enough nothing seemed to hook up.
On Sunday 27th December, Marty and Paul met up with Dale Quant from Rodzilla Adventure Fishing Tackle as well as a few mates and hit the newly opened section of the North Pine Dam. For those you of that are not aware. This dam located north of Brisbane's CBD has recently had a section of the dam opened up to Kayak Fishing. (A SIPS Permit is required to fish this dam and can be obtained here).

Friday Night was a great night of fishing. Paul and I headed down to Cabbage Tree Lake and caught up with Dale and Lozza from Rodzilla Adventure Fishing Tackle. Since receiving our Deeper Sonar Pro+ units Paul and I have used them on every fishing trip. The versatility of these units is amazing. whether fishing from a boat or kayak or from land (as in this case) the units are easy to use and help you to find the fish.
As always it will be a Family friendly event and its Free Entry. Our events aren’t all about competing it’s more to get people together that share the same passion for fishing as we do. There will be prizes for biggest fish but we also do a lot of random prize draws to give everyone a chance of winning some great prizes.
Targeting the various species of bream on lures is fast becoming the most popular forms of fishing in Australia. Their abundance in our local canal and river systems ensures that everyone right around the coastline of Australia has access to their natural and artificial habitats at any time throughout the year. It can be daunting when first targeting this species, especially when it comes to selecting from the plethora of lures, rods and reels available. In my case it wasn’t expensive lures or rods and reels that got me onto my first bream as I’ll discuss further below.
