The Cruising Freedom Author

Ahoy, Matey! I’m Joshua from Australia.

I’ve built the perfect business to sail the world.

A business model which can allow me to:

➜ Own a catamaran debt-free

➜ Go for weeks without WIFI

➜ Create semi-passive income

➜ Inspire others to dream big

But more on that later… 🙂

Briggsy Sport Fishing FAQs (April 2023)

I’ve tried to make this as accurate as possible.

If you have additional information, please reach out.

Fishing Crew

Aaron Briggs (aka Briggsy) is 34 years old and runs the Briggsy Sport Fishing channel by himself.

He’s been running his channel for a few years, and also has a small catch n cook channel called Briggsy’s Kitchen which is about preparation and cooking fish.

His girlfriend is Ochre Woodberry (age 33) who have been together since late 2018 and aren’t married.

That said, she hasn’t been on his channel for a while. Did they go separate ways? Or did she go vegan? (lol)

I say that because she runs a florist business called Mahana Flora based in Byron Bay. There are plenty of vegans in town.

Aaron has two boys (age 5 and 10) from a previous relationship and are now with him full-time, as of early 2022.

The Boat

Briggsy typically uses his kayak when he isn’t fishing off a cliff, but sometimes uses his mates’ boats too.

His mate Denny (Dennis Verreet) had a $250,000 25-foot Contender fishing boat which sadly flipped one night and sunk.


A lot of his fishing adventures have been filmed in Sydney and Northern NSW, while some have been filmed in the Whitsundays.

Affording It

Briggsy is totally free to do YouTube full-time now, but it didn’t start out this way. He worked hard during the week and spent the weekends fishing.

After some time, he started recording and low and behold, people loved it! He’s real, authentic and doesn’t make apologies, nor does he partake in the silly drama that other channels do.

He keeps his expenses low despite doing well for himself.

Net Worth

Fishing influencers on YouTube are often wealthier than we are.

As of 2023, Briggsy Sport Fishing has a net worth of $570,000 Australian dollars.

This has been estimated based on his influence in the Australian fishing scene, his personal savings and business income. He does take his channel quite seriously.

Making Loot

He makes a solid income through:

➜ Brand sponsorships with Daiwa Fishing

➜ Allowing YouTube to put ads on his channel

This is often enough to fund his lifestyle, with him making around $4,500/month on YouTube.


I’ve seen him on a few other channels, and he’s good mates with a few other channels too.

Big Moments

Apart from some epic catches, he has experienced:

➜ They were rescued by a catamaran after the Contender capsized

➜ Denny’s foot got infected around the same time

Future Plans

He’s going to continue fishing his way around Australia, and potentially sailing around the world.

Key Takeaways

This legend has many lessons worth learning:

➜ Be raw and real with your audience

➜ Take calculated risks when you can

➜ Find some mates to go fishing with

➜ You don’t need an expensive boat

And of course, find a mermaid who shares your love for fishing! 😉


I look forward to watching more of his episodes, just like you. Meanwhile, I’m working on my freedom too!
