Have you noticed that there’s a lot of information on the Internet about fishing in the USA, even the UK and Europe? But the Australian fishing information is spread out over many sites?
It’s there if you’ve got the time to wade through. All those great forums, blog posts and tackle shop sites.
Some of it has been written by some awesome people – and it shows they know what they’re talking about.
Some of it is, well, hmmm.. A few sentences, at best.
So for beginner and intermediate fishing, it can be a battle getting the right info. That’s why the long-term goal of Getfished is to build a resource that caters to beginner and intermediate fisho’s.
So I review the Victorian fishing spots I’ve actually visited. This includes saltwater spots like Port Phillip Bay and Western Port. Spots close to the Melbourne metro area. Piers, beaches, estuaries.
Getfished is owned, built and operated by Dave Scott Kane. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Dave has been fishing since he was a kid. Which was back in the mists of the 1960s & the 1970s when Dave had long hair, a wide collar and listened to Pink Floyd.
OK. Dave still listens to Pink Floyd. Everybody has a weakness, right?
By profession, Dave is a software developer (programmer.) He’s worked for multinational companies like National Semi-Conductor, Datachecker DTS, ICL Sytems and Fujitsu. He’s also written software and managed IT systems for smaller companies and retail stores.
Dave’s fluent (before he stopped counting some years back) in 27 programming languages. Encompassing a career working on Mainframes, Bank Teller machines, Personal Computers, Mac’s, Linux, OS2 and of course the modern Internet’s PHP and JS.
He’s also written software for Zoological parks. While his MSA Y2K date remediation software was used on Personal Computers within the US Navies Pacific Fleet. As well as being the #7 download at CNET for three years, used by millions of people at that time. Y2K didn’t cause planes to fall out of the sky – but it was darn right inconvenient and cost loss of money for a lot of using Windows 3.1, 95 and 98 back then.
In more recent years Dave has provided Internet Marketing services to small businesses and political parties in Australia. However, he has started taking a step back from these services to focus a little more on personal projects (like Getfished.)
Fishing and programming tend to be a little mutually exclusive. Programming tends to leave one sitting in the office chair day and night – leaving little time for soaking bait or flicking lures.
Definitely time for a change!
“If you get just one thing from this website, that helps your fishing, then that will have made my day, mate…”
