Find Australia wide weather and tides using the Fishabout iPhone App

How to find weather and tide information anywhere in the country using the Fishabout iPhone/ iPad APP.


The default weather and tide station data that displays on the conditions page is chosen by your GPS position, so the data that shows is from the station closest to where you currently are.

If you change your region using the "region selector' (see image below) on the top right corner of the conditions page, you will be able to search weather and tide data around the country.

For example, if you are in Brisbane, and you want to fish the Tweed River in the morning, firstly, click on ‘Brisbane' in the top right hand corner, and change the region to ‘Tweed' (NSW, NSW Regional)

Some ‘Tweed' weather and tide data will now display on the front page.

You can then see more weather observation data for ‘Tweed' by clicking on the 'weather tabs' cloud button on the right hand side (below the scrolling reports bar, see image above).

To then see 5 Day weather forecasts, more tide stations giving current and forecast tides and daily bite times for ‘Tweed', click on the 'fishability/forecast' button (above the 'current fishability' index meter in the centre of the conditions page, see image above).

Choose the day to search data for from the M T W T F S S buttons.

Scroll down the page to see forecast data for the chosen day, and click on the "see more tide stations" button to see data and maps for tide stations. You can check the tide data for multiple stations in the region for the next 5 days.

All the tide results are inclusive of daylight savings where it applies. 

Stuart Reid's 50lb Pending World Record PNG Black Bass

Pending World Record Black Bass

Papuan Black Bass are renowned the world over as the toughest pound for pound freshwater fish in the world, and the place to find the biggest Black Bass is PNG's Gulf province. The current all tackle world record Black Bass of 46lbs, and the fish pictured (caught on 19/6/14, by Stuart Reid, Fishabout) which is the pending world record at 50lbs, were both caught from these rivers.

Once you feel the strike you know that no freshwater fish can come close to the power. Watching 100kg guys get knocked over on the strike, reels give way, rods break in half and 130LB pound braid snap from the pound for pound strongest fighting fresh water fish is a sight to behold. If would like to experience the thrill of targeting PNG Black Bass and Barramundi in remote areas with very low fishing pressure contact us now
