Improve your fishing with Salt Guide

Just to let you know of a couple of extra features Salt Guide will be providing over the lock down period.

Regular LIVE WORKSHOPS / CHATS. These were such a huge success during the last lock down and give our members the opportunity to experience the benefits and information of a live workshop all from the comfort of your own home. Type in your questions if you need clarity or just sit back and watch and learn. Even better, they stay up all week, so even if you don’t watch it live, you can replay it whenever you like.

Super informative tutorials that are a gold mine of tips and tricks, to supplement the weekly reports for those that can’t fish.

And remember, when all our members are out fishing again, our reports are covering more of the bay than ever before – and we haven’t even hit snapper season yet! Our newest recruit, Chris Cassar will be taking you from Altona all the way to the Mornington Peninsula on the snapper and other species.

We also continue to add new products and services to the CREW CARD which is already saving members hundreds of dollars. By taking advantage of the savings, members well and truly cover the few dollars a week it costs to be a Salt Guide member and help a lot of local, small businesses along the way. Get all the info at saltguide.com.au.
