    Northbank 750HT Info

    G'day Yeah over width and over 3.5t would be a pain, great buys in that sector for those that can make it work. Interstate buying can be good, done that twice and worked out well. Extra costs but more selection and usually better prices. Just a thought. All good fun though, research research, looking looking Cheers Rod

    Northbank 750HT Info

    Thats it Rod, now its just a massive waiting game. Too much hassle with the Nautic Star i think. Oversize signs front and back and flags on each corner to tow, restrictions on towing times etc, No doubt it would have sold already if it was a tad narrower and lighter. This is where the Northbank 750 fits for our requirements, Weighs 3.3T and 2.5m beam, can legally tow it with the Ranger or Dmax. Yeah its frustrating, just the way it goes though. They are nice boats and will definitely be worth the wait. Maybe catch less fish next time mate, could be slowing you down.

  20. Competition time for all Strike & Hook members and it’s an easy one to do …. Sort of The idea of the competition is guess what ingredients have been used in the Scientifically Endorsed “Super Dooper Doobie Fish Attractant Guarantee Catch Fish Burley”. Yes, you heard it right, the best burley mix you can put together yourself to make sure you catch some fish. This doobie burly mix will attract Gar Fish, Mullet, Salmon Trout and Bream and possible many other species. In this burley mix there are 7 ingredients, so it is not a basic burley mix, but one that has special fish attractants. To help, some ingredients are the “norm”, but the remaining has the edge that you need over other fishos. Watch the video and have a look at the photos and see if you can pick what 7 ingredients have been put in the mix. If you are the first person to correctly pick all 7 ingredients in the one post … you are the winner. The prize includes …… - 1 x $20 BCF Voucher - 1 x Fireline Cap - 1 x Strike & Hook Bottle Opener - 3 x Kamashark Soft Glow Beads (various sizes) - 3 x Gladiator Super V point Hooks (various sizes) - 4 Good Spot Swivels (various sizes) Good Luck to all Strike & Hook members and there is no limit to the number of “guess’’ you have.

    First Fish on Fly

    Your a few years to late for me to help you . I was a crap fly tyer but my flies caught bream and salmon trout .. it took me two months to catch my first bream then better fly fishers helped me . Me I went and went and went and just went totally using flies. I never fly fished in the fresh . But if you live near West lakes try every beach that you can fish at that's what I did . You need sinking line for sinking flies . Or if you find Whiting Popper flies you need a floating line . Good luck Don't do any other Style of fishing when you fly fish and keep moving . And I was using a 6 wt .

    Harrison. If you live out that way, St Kilda breakwater is good for snook on fly. Usually more abundant in late spring, early summer, but still some about. Always the chance of STs, YFW and bream at the right times too.

    Bummer missing out on the Northbank there has been one fishing the same patch as me the past few weeks out wide on the tuna and I look on it with great envy it had a 300 yammie on the back and it was one hell of a nice fishing machine. I have returned the same time as him a couple of times and it was a quick boat in tough conditions and my boat is no slouch but I struggled to keep up with it and gave up trying Good luck with your search for your boat cheers snapps

    Northbank 750HT Info

    Oh well, onward and upward I like to keep an eye out on whats for sale, just an interest no plans to change myself. Yeah 3.8 tonne is pushing it with a regular 4wd, the big landcruisers would be ok if you have one, they can be upgrade around 4 and with a tare weight around 2.7t would be good. A 4wd truck I've heard is another option. 2000 hours I don't think is much for a diesel, but may trigger some major service I guess. Pretty easy to clock up the hours when you have a truly offshore capable boat. Marco builds a very good boat I believe (and found out where their limit is ) Guessing but I reckon that boat would have been pushing $250K new. Limited market in that size, but as you say though, great for the cape. The hunt continues, good luck Cheers Rod

    That is an absolute beast. 2.8m beam and 3.8T loaded. Would be great down at the Cape. Probably need to invest in a tractor. Not to sure about the hours on the motor though. Might have to go and check it out and get a better idea of condition, most of the time photos can cover up a lot of issues. Cheers for keeping an eye out mate, we did end up missing out on the Northbank. Cheers, Christien

    Wow this is a great buy if you can stand the noise of ali boats and have a tow vehicle suitable. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/andrews-farm/motorboats-powerboats/7-7m-nautic-star-aluminium-custom-boat/1175719868 Cheers Rod

    Catching Mullet info wanted

    Ocean mullet are nice but mullet from muddy creeks such as Price, Port Wakefield etc are pretty average. Must be fresh or they are bait

    Catching Mullet info wanted

    Yes. But suggest that the squid is made soft & mushy first & put a bit on the hook.
