  1. Today
  2. Yes, very lucky having so many rivers/streams to choose from down here Steve, this little tannin stream is on private property & I'm lucky enough to have around 3-4 kms of it all to myself thanks to a very kind landowner. Blade spinners can create line twist quite easily on most brands of mono lines, some worse than others, even more so with fine line., As you know I use a ultra fine 4 lb Ultra High Tenacity clear mono with a 6 lb leader with the anti-kink and I never have any problems with line twist.. I picked the anti-kinks up from local tackle stores here in Devonport. The ones I have
  3. Hey mate where do you get those anti kink keels you rig up with. Been running 6lb braid to 1.5m of 5lb flourocarbon leader and noticed some line twist when using the spinners. Not a problem with the little hardbodies but I like your idea of using small snap swivels to save time changing lures. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  4. Even Little Para River is off limits above the Reservoir due to it belonging to SA Water. Seems to me like the best waters around Adelaide are off limits or private property. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for putting that up mate. You are definitely fishing in good trout real estate there. Sixth Creek is narrow at times but the water is clear. Torrens is murky from Kangaroo Creek Reservoir down the weir down near the suburbs. Gets clear again where it gets shallow again above Gumeracha Weir. It needs more rainfall up there especially from Mt Pleasant where it has its origins. Most sections high up in the Torrens are no access due to the SA Water mentality.

  7. With the trout season closed until the 7th August I thought I'd put a few of my 2020/21 trout fishing videos on the site from time to time... Hope you enjoy it, feel free to hit the like button as well.. thanks.. cheers Adrian..
  8. Been about five years since I last pumped for nippers but at Snowdens to the left of the boat ramp at low tide below .02m there are plenty. Just look for the small holes. Sometimes they blow bubbles. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  9. Hi has any one here tried out the cheap under water cameras. They have about 20 meters of cord on them and a 4 20 5 inch monitor. I was considering one for the boat, I though they might be good for checking out what the bottom was like when the water is murky, even if you could only see a couple of feet, you would get some idea. And they are pretty cheap, you can get them from around $120. Might also be some fun checking out the reefs as well, on clearer days.
  10. Earlier
  11. have got a heap of rays down coorong some as big as a dining table
  12. I have it on good authority that BB's seafood is infact fresh local product, that squid there however......... this is the reason I rarely eat seafood I didn't catch and clean myself.
  13. The word 'massacre' comes to mind watching that. But I guess Barney Bills squid rings have to come from somewhere
  14. I generally just cook them up "as is". Normally the heat will sort out most of the suckers and I really love the texture of the tentacles when cooked properly
  15. Following. Let us know how you go Mate... Very interesting concept
  16. Yeah, I'm also thinking that it sounds a lot like a ray
  17. Interesting that it seems to be France only?
  18. I'm looking at doing the same thing. I've ordered a Daiwa Legalis LEGSD902LBF. It's an import that I picked up cheap. https://www.daiwa-france.com/products/rods/legalis-squid-8. Rod should arrive in a week. It's only rated from #2.0 to #3.0 jigs (5-15gms), but that's fine as I also have an Atomic Arrowz AAE-83ML for #2.5-#4.0 jigs. 9 foot rod that weighs 125gms and can easily throw a 10gm Halco twisty or #3.0 squid jigs jigs.
  19. Been regularly testing out rods but pulled the trigger today with Tackleworld having 20% off everything not already on special. A new Samaki Zing Egi Gen3 8'6 - this is the replacement for their Inked. Hard to compare rods in store, the Emeraldas was nice but I thought perhaps a tad too light for an all rounder and $80 more. The NS Black Hole seemed good but not a brand I was familiar with. The Okuma Egi rod was cool, I want a white rod, but at 8'2 shorter than fit the needs and not all that cheap. I almost went with the AirdX 9' which was a bit meatier than I was aiming for but I reckon
  20. Lazy bait sesh tomorrow up the Warren and with water levels high will be up in the timber. But with clear water deep diving lures will work well. Hoping to get another Cod and next time I get one it will be going on the brag mat coz it sucks having to take photos of them in the water when fishing solo. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  21. Thanks Guys , thats what i was thinking myself. Confirmation Mr Raymondo.
  22. In the Port I've caught eaglies on live STs a number of times and Kelvin confirms they get up into the coorong so I reckon we can just about call it.
  23. I remember a time up the Warren Reservoir very early morning when there were tiny icicles hanging off the braid. Also remember a time up on the houseboat my folks used to own when the shrimp pot ropes stuck to the rails on the side. And the first Cod I ever caught was at Blanchetown many years ago at 2am in the morning and freezing cold and all my mates were asleep in their tents and swags. Some of my best fishing memories are during cold weather but I must admit I am definitely a summer person. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  24. But this one time a school of silver perch swam through at Nappers Bridge. Caught ten all the same size as this. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
  25. Might have been a big Port Jackson shark. Caught a few off the stones at Outer Harbour and they do the same as you describe. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk
