Some recommendations for kayaking please
« on: Thu 20 Jul 12:52 2017 »
Guys still beating myself up for selling my Hobie Quest 13 when I bought the boat, reluctantly downgrade to a Dragon Kayak 2.5 seater. I'm after some recommendations for easy paddling and maybe a bit of fishing? I'm close to Brisbane river at Jindalee but not sure if it's worth going there. Anyone got a favourite destination that I can pinch off :)?
Thanks

I'm guessing bull sharks n catfish are in that neck of the woods. One of my brothers used to date a girl way up on the Bremer river n her little brother would get bullies upto n over a meter n also mud crabs off the jetty at the back of their place.
Looking forward to the next trip

Depends on what you are looking for, nice paddling and OK fishing is the fresh
water parts of the rivers, like the Logan, Albert, Coomera and Nerang. For fishing
I like the Broadwater and the mouths of the Gold coast rivers.

Cheers Jason

    The river is quite muddy up that way I find. Colmslie is much nicer.
