About Chris Raimondi

Chris Raimondi is a Brisbane based angler who's passion for fishing began in the estuaries chasing bream and whiting with his dad and grandfather. These days, Chris spends the majority of his spare time fishing offshore of South East Queensland anywhere from Cape Moreton to 1770 chasing snapper, red emperor and other reef species.

Frank Oostenbroek

About Frank Oostenbroek

Originally from Holland and migrating to the Brisbane area at the age of five, Frank (FrankO) Oostenbroek spent most of his younger days either fishing the Brisbane and Bremer Rivers for Australian bass catfish and sharks or catching snakes for his terrarium.

At the age of twelve, Frank was given his own rifle and spent many weekends hunting and fishing alone in the bush until he joined the Royal Australian Air Force at the age of seventeen. Frank spent the next twenty years working in the field of electronics/communications as well as four years as an electronics instructor. After leaving the Air Force, Frank started his own company, which specialised in the auditing and documentation of data/computer networks for many of Australia’s major companies and banks.

Frank has had the opportunity to fish in every state of Australia as well as in China, Indonesia, and Holland, but his true passion is fishing the deeper waters and reefs along the Queensland coast. You will find Frank living just forty five minutes north of Brisbane on beautiful Bribie Island, which provides easy access to many fresh water rivers and impoundments, as well as the protected waters of Pumicestone Passage, but the main reason Frank lives there is the close proximity to Cape Moreton where he specialises in fishing with soft plastics.

Dan Kaggelis

About Dan Kaggelis

Born in Tully, North Queensland, Dan cut his fishing teeth in the region’s freshwater rivers chasing the tropical triumvirate of sooty grunter, jungle perch and barramundi. With fishing running thick in the Kaggelis family, Dan was fortunate to experience many extended trips to the Western Cape and Gulf of Carpentaria from a young age. This instilled a deep affection for the sport. Living so close to Great Barrier Reef, offshore fishing was also very much included in recreational activities as was free diving and spearfishing.
