    A little extra on a lure....

    Have you ever purchased a lure or two, used them and caught fish on them but still felt they just needed a little extra on them.. Well it may just be me but with my trout lures I quite often think there's that little bit extra that can be done with a lure.. Not all lures, just the odd one here and there.. I have these nice little Greed Guts lures and they work well on the trout but I felt I could add that extra to them.. all I did was get a fine pointed tooth pick and dob a few little red dots on each side of the lure. Now they look like small wild brown trout & I feel much happier with them too... I have done the same with my Mepps Aglia spinners by placing some #00 black fury stickers on the wider metal blades and they had an effect straight away on the trout.. I caught more fish on them.. cheers Adrian The original Greedy Guts hard body Same lure after a minor touch up... Now I feel much better.. An old photo from back in 2016 when I started putting the black fury stickers on the Mepps Aglia blades.... This ones on a copper blade.. it did improve the catch rate with the Aglia spinners..

    Hi an old post, but i thought id upload a recipe from my resturant thats works very well. We use off cuts of beef fillet. Marinate over night and dry at 60 degrees over night. Give it a go! Sometimes we will smoke it in red gum for 30 min just to taint the meat a lil.

    Strike hook stickers

    They will be available soon. I'll get em organised tomorrow and also add them to the SH store as soon as I can. A bit of an idea what they will look like with the mockup below.

    Single Hooks

    I've really concentrated on single hooks this year, although dabbled a bit last year. After hooking too much weed when it was around, I found a single to pull through most weed or hook very minimal amounts. I have found that it has not mattered if the hook is facing up / down / sideways etc. All hook ups so far has not mattered with the hook angle. I generally find it hardish to put a hook on the split ring even with using split ring pliers - I find using a staple remover better. The Salmon have a good sized mouth so when they swallow the hook/lure it really doesn't matter on angle as they do get hooked either way

    Where to live

    Thanks for all the replies everyone. Yeah main reason is the missus family all live in Adelaide and all my direct family moved over west. I have some relies in Kadina and Moonta and for me to move back to SA there was no way I could ever reside in Adelaide. I have some relies over at Lincoln but any further out from there she isn't going to agree as they have a reasonable airport to get back to Adelaide for her. I had to compromise with her otherwise not a happy girl as she has never lived outside a city and is scared she won't like it. No probs for me as I grew up down by Bordertown and have told her for years that we are not retiring in some sh*t hole of a city. In the end we are trying to compromise with each other as I love the bottom of yorkes but I know that my chances of getting work are at the best remote as for her it doesn't matter as she works from home remote for a Canberra company. The reason why we started this journey a little earlier is I have and a shoulder reco and can't get rid of industrial dermatitis on my hands so we made the decision that if I have to start a new job may as well move and start a new life

    Where to live

    I have lived in coastal country SA for heaps of years from Thevenard to Port Vic. and many places in between. From my experience and people that I have met , The golden rule in respect to country towns is If Your Missus Likes It You Will Like It. Pick a town you like, stay in a rental for a couple of weeks during the winter when there is not much movement and take it from there. Good Luck with your move.

    Single Hooks

    General consensus though is to have the tail hook with the gape curving up for marginally better snag protection and if you have a mid hook, have it the opposite way (J while dangling beneath the lure). As Doobie said, it doesn't really batter with salmon though. Even if there is a second or third hook point, I wouldn't bother with it for salmon. They go too nuts when you get them out of the water and the less hooks to catch yourself on the better. Also as Doobie said, the way they attack a lure, they're easy enough to hook even with a single hook on the lure tail, no matter which way the hook is facing.

    End of RecFish SA?

    Hows this working out for you Mr Keegan? Supposedly 277,000 Anglers have an invested interest in this situation, you claim to represent how many of them? Whats the update from SAFA? RecfishCENTRAL who claim to represent .08% of them has come out with the attached "media release" admitting he and his members may have very well been shafted libs_break_policy.pdf

    I've double hot smoked it, 2 to 2.5 times as long as I would normally, and that dries it right out with a beautiful strong smoke flavour. Lasts about 4 days unrefrigerated but wouldn't trust it at all past a week.

    Also that amount of marinate would probly be good for 500g of protein. Really coat your sliced meat for the dry process.

    Where to live

    Hi Knackers My last trip over SA was to Coffins and tried to launch from farm beach but without a tractor so we had no chance so we launched from town ramp. This added a bit more time but we bagged out on our tuna and a few other fish so all good but the missus didn't like it there and said no to living there. I'm looking at house's in Lincoln but she has her head set on one of the old bungalow's and finding the one she wants for the cash we have is problematic in both areas. I have a plus with Lincoln in a very good mate is going to retire there in a few more years so I just have to find the right house.

    End of RecFish SA?

    So you didn't block me, you had "admin" block me, but some how you don't know who I am.....If that the case, how can you be sure your admin blocked me? You make zero sense. and as per usual going on some tangent instead of focusing on the question at hand. The fact remains RecFish are still the peak body (initial question asked of this thread), and the liberal government have confirmed Recfish have a valid contract till next year. The libs have again said they are looking at forming some form of council with the exact details yet to be confirmed. But Yelliwtail, please be sure to keep us in the loop when something comes to fruition from all your hard work.

    Rapala R type reel

    At my time working in the tackle shop i sold countless Daiwa BGs for guys wanting them for a range of species and had all positive feedback from them customers. Only issue i saw was the drag clicker broke but that was replaced. Have seen plenty of Snapper Tuna Kingfish even Sharks caught on them. Even Alan Hawk gives them a great reel! Only downside for me was i love power ball handle knobs. The Daiwa BGs handle knob is riveted. There are ways to get around it but other than that they are a great reel!

    Rapala R type reel

    You'll be lucky to find a reel with a spare spool these days, especially in the general beach reel size range. Budget will determine just how much of a beach reel you'll get. Most of the decent reels under $100-$150 are more freshwater focused. Would be okay for general saltwater use if given a light hose down after, but less so for sand a heavy splashes from the surf. That Rapala is more of a jigging/offshore reel, I believe. For around the same as you paid for the Rapala, a Quantum Iron 50 should be lighter, has a decent spool lip for casting and good salt protection (only basic sealing like drag knob, though). Can get them for around $100. Spool diameter is slightly larger than Shimano 5000. The new Quantum Smoke Inshore S3 is about $170 with a reasonably quick (6.0:1) gear ratio, lighter than the Iron and similar salt protection. Very good drag. For better sealing, you're looking at probably Shimano Spheros or similar. Also heavy like the Rapala but Shimanos usually cast very well. If you want lighter and/or cheaper, or faster gear ratios then you'll be giving up on sealing and some salt protection and looking at stuff like the Nasci 5000.

    Will be interesting to see what happens and how effective this new council will be. Are they volunteered positions or is there funding attached? Would hate to see the same issues with the new group - i think we need to follow the victorian model and make some drastic changes, so we can once again have an outstanding fishery in the next 5 to 10 years. Also will be interesting to see if they allow the dredging of the channel as originally planned, given they seem to be pro business (relaxing trading hours, reducing business tax, etc). David
