    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    Anything goes I guess,I smoked a crab once and it was quite surprising .Just threw the whole thing in and the meat was moist with a nice smokey flavour, better than fish I thought.

    Wading bags

    Your right, they are great bags for rock hoping. Sounds like you had considered most if not all options before settling on the Wading bag, so im sure it will tick all your boxes. Hopefully you will fill it with a few YFW soon enough.

    Wading bags

    G’day TL, thanks for the input mate. I had a Daiwa sling bag in the past which was great for rocks fishing. I had considered a fly vest due to doing a bit of kayaking as well, but ultimately settled on the wading bag. I enjoyed reading the wading tubs thread, it looks like you’re all set, I especially like the rod/landing net holders. I’m very keen to give the arrowz a workout, seems I got on the bandwagon late as they are sold out nearly everywhere. Good luck with it mate! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

Shane Mensforth, David Scholefield, Amanda Whitehorn, Peter Teakle and Brian Wheadon will join the four appointed recreational fishing organisation representatives to provide feedback and advice to government on recreational fishing development, initiatives and big picture policy issues that impact the sector. Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone said the finalising of the Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council is another election commitment delivered by the Marshall Liberal Government. “I’m delighted to announce today the five individual representatives elected by the fishing public, to complete the nine-member Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council,” said Minister Whetstone. “The Marshall Liberal Government’s commitment to refreshing representation for recreational fishers has been achieved through a transparent, open consultation and voting process. “The voting process has been transparent and historic - for the first time in South Australian Government history, Blockchain technology was used for the voting process. Blockchain is an exciting emerging technology which is extremely secure and already used all over the world to perform valuable transactions.” Minister Whetstone said that voting was done using the preferential method and counted using the proportional representation model. “By ensuring votes flowed through a preferential system, each vote has counted,” said Minister Whetstone. “I thank all the candidates who put their hand up and nominated, and every recreational fisher who voted – you have made your voice heard, and these five individuals will represent you on the Council. “Recreational fishing provides significant social and economic benefits to our state. For some time there has been a need to enhance the dialogue and communication between recreational fishers and the South Australian Government, which is what this group aims to achieve. “I am looking forward to working with all nine members to further our commitment to South Australia’s diverse and active recreational fishery to improve the fishing experience.” Ministerial Recreational Fishing Advisory Council members Shane Mensforth David Scholefield Amanda Whitehorn Peter Teakle - inland fisher Brian Wheadon - representing the tackle sector Tracey Tito - representing FishinSA and the South Australian Fishing Alliance John Thomas - representing FishinSA Ian Fitzgerald - representing RecFish SA Graham Keegan - representing the South Australian Fishing Alliance

    For what it is worth, those rapala sling bags are a great (there would be other brands / versions that do the same) alternative to a wading bag. Holds more than enough tackle and supplies. Slides around to the front for easy access and even doubles as a work table. You can clip on a fish / scale / keeper bag to the D ring on the bag as well. Whilst I have upgraded to a tub with an esky for my flats wading, I still use the sling bag for all my other land based fishing, especially where mobility is key. Another idea I know others use, is a fly vest. Its lite, everything is accessible and again, you can carry a keeper bag attached to your waste. For what it is worth, that Atomic Arrowz rod you got, if its the Bream Surface rod, its a great rod, especially for the price. I have one in my arsenal of wands epecially for wrangling YFW on surface lures. I havent been dissappointed.

    That’s a bloody good idea mate, I’m pretty sure I’ve got one of those maglite loops in the shed. How often do you need to oil/wax that leather knife sheath? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    My setup using a dive belt,the black loop is for resting rod butt while changing lures or baiting up hooks. Two lengths bags depending if i'm standing deep or shallow depending on that day's location

    Are Shimano Nasci Reels Dunkable

    They really are quite robust, my only suggestion would be if you’re going to maintain it yourself, use a decent amount of rubber grease or petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on the seals each time you strip the reel. Once the seals dry and perish they’re useless. Having said that, mine are still supple and sealing perfectly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    G’day HeavyD, thanks for the detailed reply and info mate, I’ve been meaning to get onto one of those Alvey belts, seems it’s compatible with every Alvey product, something a lot of manufacturers could learn from. The bait bucket looks particularly good, being that it’s versatile for use with bait,Berley or tackle storage. Thanks for the photos mate, glad to see you out there getting amongst it, especially with your lad. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Are Shimano Nasci Reels Dunkable

    My thought was to run some grease just under the seals to add bit more protection

    Are Shimano Nasci Reels Dunkable

    I’ve got a nasci 2500 that I use for tommies and mullet, and while I wouldn’t want to leave it submerged for any length of time it does cop spray pretty regularly and has seen a few dunks. I’ve been really impressed with it tbh, I regularly give it a bath in freshwater to stop the salt drying on it and it’s basically still like new with the exception of a little fading.

    Mate I have both Alvey bags and scaling bags, my go to is the deluxe version. Set up with ruler, worming pliers, hook disgorger and knife. Thermos, energy drink or cheeki water bottle in the can holder. Just love it. My boy uses the standard one. Also I have the mother of mid-sections and if anything it gives the bag something to rest against !! To maintain just give it an occasional hose out. I often use an Alvey belt with a bait container and rod bucket attached, the bait container can also be used to store lures. In the front pouch of the bag I keep a small waterproof container for tackle, and obviously any fish go in the main pouch, and I also keep wallet/phone/keys, etc. in waterproof bags in the main pouch as well. Alvey do sell a dry pack for this purpose that can be attached to the belt: https://alvey.com.au/products/dry_pack/ If you look at my profile pic the yellow strap is visible there, I was flicking the flats for whiting on that day, took home a good feed too. Where I'm from this is actually quite a standard beach fishing set up. Here's a pic of the Alvey bait belt with rod bucket and a bait container, note that particular bait container has a bit sticking out with holes that lures can hang off (yes the crab was returned for all you sticklers):
  19. Looking through a variety of sealed reels at budget prices and lightweight 1000-2500-3000 sizes Tsunami Shield – good seals too heavy Penn Spinfisher V & V1 - good seals too heavy Kastking Sharky ll – has seals cheap to buy but major fail for dunking I can’t think of anything other spinning reels for knee deep fishing for Mullet and Gar Nasci has 3 rubber seals to prevent water intrusion does anyone know if they work for the occasional dunk ? and when I say dunk it may get one to three on a day,but will they survive .Anyone put that to the test.

    Very good advice from ChuckTseeker, I guess you could also use some ripstop canvas if you had it laying around. I got one today at a very reasonable price, but if I’m using it I discover I’d like it laid out a different way I may well end up making my own as you’ve suggested. Thanks for your input mate!

    If you have a sewing machine handy just make ya own! A cheap $3 tarp cut out a bit fold in half sew up each side then cut a length for the strap fold in half and again sew along the length then just attach to bag! If you want a pocket just cut out the size and sew 3 sides to the main bag before you sew that together! There easy as and very little cost. I used to make a couple at once and they would last for a few years before i threw them away and made another!.....

      Hey bud! Thanks for the offer! I should have said graphite. It's going to be used for flicking lures for callop, cod and the occasional Barra trip. Cheers

    No worries at all Mike, sounds like a plan when this wind calms a little. I had a look at the Ugly Stik bag, looks like a sturdy unit so I’ve snapped one up. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  26. G'day fishos, Hope you're all well! For my Year 11 studies, I have chosen to research the decline of snapper stocks in the Gulf of St Vincent. I have conducted a survey about this topic to help conduct with my research. I would appreciate if you could take the time out the fill in my survey! Tight lines, Tom https://goo.gl/forms/ZoFqejgdEeyGMwID3

    Thanks for another good suggestion AR1, this is what I’ve been doing for the last couple years. Only recently did I see a wading bag and assume that if it’s task specific it must be a good thing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
