About Gary Palmer

My name’s Gary Palmer, I live on the North Coast of NSW and most fishers up this way know me simply as Squidgie.

I have been fish since I was a kid growing up down the South Coast of NSW and cut my teeth on bream and flathead in Lake Illawarra. I’ve been living up here for over 30 years and have not used bait for many years.

Soft plastics and hard body lures are my drug – well they say once you use these rubber bands it’s welcome to the dark side.

I write for fishing mags and had my own radio show on fishing for a long time until I became ill and couldn’t continue, but still do small reports on radio.

I love bass and estuary perch fishing but bream and flathead are still up there for me. I also love blackfish don’t think there is anything better than watching a float go down with fish on. I am a river rat I love fishing rivers but I do fish beaches and occasionally go out in the deep blue.
