In Queensland’s vast and varied aquatic landscapes, the distinction between a good day’s catch and a great one often comes down to the gear an angler chooses.

This idea is something that every fisherman agrees on, including Diego, an up-and-coming fisherman and Aaron, who shares a keen interest in the nuances hitting the water with the right gear. Their in-depth conversation, on why premium equipment like Daiwa Rods, Polycraft Boats, and Yamaha Outboards are essential for anyone serious about fishing in Queensland is now up with behind the scenes on our YouTube.

Diego, a skilled and passionate fisherman, gave some insights into how he used his gear primarily for big game fishing. Discussing some of his thrills, Diego shared memorable moments, such as landing a 230kg marlin, which showcased his Polycraft Boat’s stability and spacious design. The centre console, in particular, facilitates ease of movement—crucial when angling for large fish.
Aaron contributed to the conversation by noting a less obvious advantage of Polycraft Boats—their construction material. “Because Polycrafts are plastic, they make a different sound in the water,” he observed, a subtle factor that could make these boats stealthier to fish.

Diego spoke on the Polycraft Boats tendency for their unmatched balance of ruggedness and smooth handling, “Polycrafts ride like a fibreglass boat but you can still drag them up the rocks, just like a plate boat. They ride really well.” This durability and performance are crucial in the diverse conditions presented by Queensland waters.
The versatility of Polycraft Boats also came under discussion, highlighting Diego’s fishing adventures across Queensland’s varied marine environments. From chasing flathead and trevally in the canals to navigating rivers, the adaptability of his Polycraft Boat stands as a testament to its design and functionality.
