What you'll do

Land based fishing is my passion and Flat Water Fishing wants to give everyone a great fishing experience. I have been fishing the Gold Coast, Tweed Heads and Brisbane estuaries, rivers, canals, beaches, and wharf's for more than 18 years and want you to enjoy the thrill of catching fish as well. I know that boats are not for everyone so this is a great alternative to being on the water. I encourage catch and release fishing but am fine with those taking home all legal sized catches.
I will tutor learners how to cast a net, or spool a reel, or thread reel through a rod and attach the hooks and sinkers.
Because the fishing spots vary from day to day Flat Water Fishing will post where the fishing experience will be the night before.
I offer two options daily:
7am to 11am for the early risers and
1pm to 5pm for a nice afternoon experience.
You won't be disappointed so bring a smile and an awesome attitude with you and let's go fishing.
Other things to note
Flat Water Fishing is legally registered
It has an Australian Business Number "ABN"
Tax receipts are available
I have a valid Queensland "Positive Notice Blue Card" to work with children

I have been a land based fisherman for 40 years so decided to create "Flat Water Fishing" I am licensed and registered and I want to share the thrill of land based fishing with young and old, any gender, ethnicity or culture. I provide everything: High quality rods, reels, tackle, all bait, cast nets, camp chairs, sun screen, insect repellant and a helpful team.
We will fish from piers, jetty's, wharf's, off the beach and even off the rocks.
I am incredibly patient, have a great sense of humour and love sharing my knowledge.

Peina provided a wonderful adventure for us. We had great lessons on how to bait a hook correctly, providing explanation and reasoning. Peina also gave us good lessons on how to cast properly again providing reasoning. All done with respect and great stories. Thank you.

We had the most amazing time fising with Peina. A glorious morning, we started out a little shaky and lost a few rigs, Peina was so patient and kind to help us pick up the initial skills for land based rock fishing and we were off and racing. In all we caught over 19 fish (between three of us), had some good laughs and heard wonderful stories from Peina of his worldwide fishing trips. We absolutely loved it.

Peina is a good man with a love of fishing. Very experienced and has got a lot of cool stories to share. Very down to earth and easy to talk too. I'm not that well experienced in fishing but he was very understanding and was patient. He was willing to help me out and gave important tips on how to fish that will definitely come in handy when I start doing my own fishing. Awesome day out with this guy. Highly recommend.
