    How to fillet fish

    Just completed a video on how to fillet fish (using Tommy Rough as an example). Let me know what you think. If you find it useful, let me know what the subject should be for the next one.

  5. I use the Oceans Legacy size 6 or 8... Or the Shinto size 6 or 8 get the "medium" I trim off the red shiney bits.. Dont like the Trick Bitz. Cheaper to make.. But I like em.. Im lazy sometimes.. Short skirts mate.. Not too long as they get tangled in the lure..

  6. I suppose you could give them a go but wouldn't think too big. After all, a successful lure is the Sugapen 95 and that is longer (but not cheap). The 70mm is worth having too. The best thing is to have a range of sizes and types - on the day, what doesn't work another might. Have a look at these posts by mikecatts - he has a range of lures of lures that may help in what to have in your kit.

  7. Could be a Jinker? Kind of like a high top tractor that can drive through the water. There’s a few guys on the northern flats that use them to launch tinnys if I recall.

    With the price of tuna and sailfish going up this one might be worth the money Mac Daddy’s Million Dollar Lure https://www.sportfishingmag.com/most-expensive-fishing-lures-in-world/

  10. I I have had reasonably good success making my own and think I have a simpler method than some others I have seen. I just tie two hooks to a piece of 80 lb braid and loop it to a split ring with a strand of rubber alongside the braid, before pulling it tight I add two more rubber legs trough the loop created at the split ring. when it is pulled tight the rubber seems to stop the knot slipping when a fish is only hooked on one hook.

    Could have done with that the other week.. One got me a beauty with the rakers, the kayak looked like a war zone from all the blood.

    Red Meat and Chicken?

    That is correct. Raw chicken slithers work wonders on many fish, including KG Whiting..

  16. Cheers for that. Didn’t do any fishing today, did alright raking crabs so stuck to that for 2 hours. Might be going in a few weeks so might get a fish in then. In the meantime I can get some of those size 8 hooks.

    Red Meat and Chicken?

    Yes, technically. But they have turned a blind eye (that I have witnessed twice) if using slithers of red meat/chicken or mince as bait on a hook.

  18. BCF has assist hooks made by BKK that do an excellent job for assist hooks for whiting. The best sizes are the Smalls. BKK Strikers is their name. We used to sell Atomic Trick bitz but they were cleared out a few years ago.

  19. Cheers Anaconda have some but not in stock. Would the double clutch 75 be too big for whiting and size 10 assist hooks. I’ve got the double clutch 60 and 75. Thinking 60 might be better

  20. Yep Should be about $6-7. Tackle shops will have them (not bcf etc) so shouldn't need to order (unless you have too). Can get with some frilly things on the end as well, but wouldn't really bother.

  21. No worries I’ll have a look now. Are these what I should order?

  22. Cheers for the reply, That’s good to know. Trebles can be a pain at times. I have a packet of Atomic Trick Bitz in size #010- NS, I guess that is size 10 and whatever the NS means. Is that size good for YFW? hope you had a good Xmas and New Year and have been getting a few fish

  23. Yep it's the way to go. Even add a couple more split rings to give more swing with the hooks. You can put assist hooks on the belly which of course provides another chance of a hook up, but most don't. Size 8 assist hooks. Good luck on Sunday.

  24. I was reading this post and I noticed the Lures just had assist hooks only, no trebles or hooks on the belly. Is that a good way of doing it when chasing YFW? I’m going to target some on Sunday and would like to know so I can change some hooks over. cheers

  25. Hi guys, sorry if this is in the wrong forum section, but I need some help identifying. I had a customer come into work today who needed to purchase fishing rod holders for his new boat - he said maker was Janko? But that was all I could get out of him. This thing looked insane. I have been googling for hours and can't work out who sells it. It was basically a 3x3 m fishing platform, but of a Bimini cover for shade, all seemed to be made out of aluminium, hand rails all around, standing about 2 metres in the air, movable by 4 big off road tyres. The image he showed me, they wer

  27. They're very popular/useful at Parham for launching/retrieving boats, didn't think they were used for fishing but I spose they could be.

    How to fillet fish

    Nice work. I'd appreciate tips on snook if you're looking for a different fish, I'm not happy with the way I do those, and there's no other videos I can find.

    How to fillet fish

    Good clear video I fillet my fish similar to that. With Gar, I can butterfly them pretty well -- but with other fish I find it difficult. So I'd be up to seeing a video on butterflying Thanks again for putting up.

  36. This clip is interesting, because the point the hooks are facing the head not the tail, this has the fish attacking the lure from the tail end not the claws end. I think a fish would find it a lot easier to swallow a nipper if it took it from the tail end, it would have to be easier to to get down their throat.

  37. Tried the new softy plastic this morning. Not a success, but also not a failure. I'm certainly not BJSlick and fishing the morning tide off the beach for YFW on metro beaches is new to me. I normally fish for YFW in the afternoon on shallow areas with the rising tide flooding over the sand. Metro, my normal patch is Kingston Park, using nippers. I also fish the YP quite a bit for YFW, Moonta Bay between Simms Cove and Rossiters Point, or the sand spit at Black Point. So this is new territory for me. Also, I don't usually use soft plastics, on metro beaches I use nippers and on the YP

  38. Ezyrig running on main line, rolling swivel with or without clip pending your preference. 1 foot approx sinker dropper a bit lighter than your main line (sacraficial), 3 foot approx trace with a 4/0 circle or 2 snooded on 40-60lb fluro, maybe a glowbead if your into that (I love em, pretty). For the lure trace of about a metre of 20-40lb fluro attached however you like should do the job. Good luck.

    I have been catching some impressive gummies around Edithburgh.Try the rips around Saltana Point around dusk.Use squid heads on a running rig.I know its not against the law to catch and keep females but after gutting a good size female a few years ago and finding over 30 pups happily swimming around inside her,i have made it my rule not to keep females.The one I am holding here is a male.

    Red Meat and Chicken?

    It is entirely legal to use these meat items, but for HOOK bait only Lots of interesting chat on S&H about the misconceptions surrounding this fact as PIRSA do not allow meat and chicken or other animal based meats for burleying or in crab nets.I have always used meats for all my fishing in boats or in the surf, chicken breast is outstanding in tiny cubes for mullet, garfish, flathead, whiting, bigger pieces for bream. Yesterday, (10.8.13)I fished the Coorong in my mates tinny and caught double header ST's on waste bits of fatty venison taken from a hunted Deer, although ANY red or white
