    Fishing 100 - 150 days

    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

    How to cook crabs?

    Bring sea water to the boil add crabs and when it comes back to the boil set timer for 8 minutes… I then like to drop into ice water to set the meat or eat them hot what ever you prefer

  12. We will keep safe Adrian - safe inside, unlike crazy Tinker I don't mind the rain either, it's the wind that messes everything up - hate the wind, wish that guy upstairs could cancel it out From the Southport surfcam - 1 hour before the 9.30am (.99m) low tide. High tide at 4.04pm today at 2.41m. Normally you would see a lot of the river bank at low tide, so the water isn't being allowed to drain due to the seas pushing it back in lol Currently the NW wind is blowing at about 32kph/17 knots (fresh) to the predicted 55kph/30 knots (gale) - weather forecasters

    Squid jag colours

    I try and keep it simple when squidding so ill change through a few colours (mainly white, silvery baitfish colour, green, gold) if i have to but i try not to. Changing colours too much does more bad than good sometimes as you end up too focused on the colours and not focused enough on actually working the jig. Most of the time for me its not colours to be reason the squid aren't biting, its usually the way your working the jig or the spot that your fishing. any way in saying that i have found that the Shimano Sephia clinch flash boost jigs with the inbuilt flash are really good, even wh

    No tail beats, head shakes or tooth marks in the bait? Sounds very flat, black and flappy to me so I'm going with ray of some kind.

    Fishing 100 - 150 days

    My fishing depends on my free time from work lately. Both days on the weekend then one or two days during the week if I finish early. Mostly freshwater and if it isn't a lazy sit down bait sesh I will be throwing lures about. Usually the Warren Reservoir or Murray on weekends and then fishing local metro muddy puddles during the week. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    How to cook crabs?

    I've gone from cooking whole crab to backing them (removing shell and guts/lungs) before cooking. Way cleaner process and drops cook time by 1 min. 7min after return to boil and mandatory plunge in iced seawater to set meat as Jackmac said

    Thanks FECB I didn't see any Tom Cruise bounding towards in the 'high point' position (luckily lol) - although a girl a use to know always thought I looked like Tom I helped her cross a street and handed her white stick back The gear I use - being nothing fancy - is a 11' Daiwa Seabass - Shimano Sienna FB4000 reel with mono backing topped with 15lb (cheap) braid, then swivel, then about 1 - 1/2 m of 20lb mono leader, the swivel and lure. I only use 40g lures (rarely a 50g and only if wind is in my face) with a single hook (I always take off the trebles as they either grab w

  21. Nice video, very windy conditions there too doobie.. Nothing better than hooking a few salmon in the surf, shame you lost more than you landed. The fish you did land was still a nice keeper anyway. When it used to blow from the North that's when I used to fish from the rocks between Waits & Parsons, used to fish well in those conditions as the fish were always in close to the rocks. The strong Northerlies always kept the swell down.. It wasn't all that easy getting to and from the rocks though, but the rewards were worth the effort.. Still I was a lot younger back then too.. Doubt I'd do

    Squid jag colours

    Hi I have been trying to research catching squid, to improve my chances on a bad day, there are hundreds of articles and videos on line. There is an almost unlimited array of colours, patterns, features and manufacturers, as well as techniques. One of the interesting things is Squid are colour blind, yet colours are so important. I have been watching old black and white movies and there is an unlimited amount of different shade, that represent different colours. Apparently this why squid are attracted to different colours despite not seeing them as we do. For the older Fishos out there who c

    Squid jag colours

    I like jigs that either reflect UV light (fluorescent) or glow (photoluminescent). Some jigs even combine fluorescent and photoluminescent elements. Aside from colour, try rattle jigs. Of the rattle jigs I like the Daiwa Emeraldas Gold Goma Saba. One jig I own, I really want to hate because I think it's ugly, but it has been very successful is a Duel Dartmaster. It combines fluorescence, photoluminescence and rattle. Last weekend I went to Brighton jetty for a quick flick. It was packed as usual but no one was catching any squid. I was having no luck and after 20 mins I put the ugly

    Squid jag colours

    White is the colour i use no matter what conditions.One of the most important things is getting the weight just right and having the jag as close to the bottom as possible.Slow and even dodge tides are best in my opinion.I dont over work the jig but i like to cover as much ground as possible by casting as far up current as possible and let it drift back a in a large arc.I always keep a jig ready when fishing for whiting or snaps as squid will often follow up a hooked fish.On a recent trip to emu bay on KI we sat on a small whiting patch and with 4 on board we landed our bag limit of 30 in very

    Squid jag colours

    Squid see light and dark colours only more like black and white,i'll usually start the day with the two lightest coloured jigs on two rods then progress to the two darkest colours.Can mix colours too this is why carrying a range in sizes and colours improves the catch rate.The other thing is how the jigs are worked in the water to get there attention for hook ups,i'll bring them through the water as a distressed fish not as a drifting prawn.

    What was this fish?

    Had a brief encounter with a fish on a live salmon troutie, fishing the coorong. At first i thought it was a Mullie ,but it was just steady weight ,when it swam off slowly. Then it accelarated with a nice run , then spat the hook. At no stage was there any headshakes, on examining the bait i could not see any teeth marks. So im stumped at what it might of been, any ideas fellow Strike Hookers?

  32. Thanks again for the heads up on that mate. Also got a BCF down the road from me at Elizabeth. Great place to visit but they keep having a 3 day sale every 3 days and bombard me with emails.[emoji2] They also sold me a Shimano Stradic ci4 for $200 when I nagged them. If only they could stock decent live freshwater bait like scrubbies and crawlers. Will keep nagging them.[emoji23][emoji23] Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

  33. Thanks doobie, I don't get line twist when using the anti-kink, without them the line does get some minor twisting that eventually worsens the longer I fish without the anti-kinks. I'm interested to see how the small roller bearings will go when I test the new setup without the anti-kink, it would be great if this works. I'm not all that sure about the second anti-kink setup with the roller bearing, even though it's small the added weight may not be the way to go. Only time will tell I suppose.. cheers Adrian..

  34. 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

  41. And I find you don't need to find the salmon school with vibrating blades coz the school tunes in to the noise and they all move toward it. And I find swapping the trebles to high end single hooks reduces the cabbage caught up and makes a better hook up. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Metho and nippers

    I dig my own bloodworms and dip them live in metho which makes them seize up and toughen up then freeze them. Can see the method working on nippers and beach worms also. Bream don't seem fussed about metho if you fish a whole bloodworm preserved in metho but they get picky if you cut the worms up coz they don't look natural. Also heard stories about the folks who sprayed their lures in WD-40 and caught good fish off the jetties. If you can source some nippers with your bait pump I would say put them live in metho before you freeze them so they don't soften up. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using

  43. Just checked and my Symetre is a 1500. Bought it years ago and looks a bit worn on the outside but all internal components still work smooth as silk. Another good low priced Shimano reel is the Sedona. Got a few Sedonas from 1000s to 4000s on my heavier rods for freshwater natives and I think they are the ducks nuts. And you can't beat the 10 year warranty on all Shimano reels from the Siennas up. Sent from my SM-J120ZN using Tapatalk

    Nope, can't say I have - worth a go if you catch some nippers (wonder if throwing them in a bag of rock salt would dry them out - just a random thought that entered my brain for a moment lol)

    BAIT ELASTIC ?

    I use bait elastic with pilchard and garfish baits when casting from shore. Haven't tried it with yabbies, but alot of people overseas use it for soft baits like clams, prawn and squid so it should work fine. Let us know when you try

    BAIT ELASTIC ?

    I've thought about using bait elastic on nippers but never bothered. Mainly because I'm only casting say around 7 metres from the shore and have enough nippers to re-bait quickly. Nippers are a great bait for whiting. From a boat like you'll be doing, I understand the frustration of dropping the bait down the side and before it's maybe hit bottom the nipper has be attacked and of course you strike and more than likely the nipper has come off (being soft flesh) or eaten and you need to retrieve straight away. The other thing with elastic is there is that little bit more plas

    Congratulations Doobie -- it's a brilliant video ! The music was great too -- I half expected Tom Cruise (or some other heart throb) to come bounding up the beach with his rod held at the "high port". (Non-military types can ask "Mr Google" for an explanation.) To benefit the "newbies" like me that frequent this website, it would be really great to learn a bit more from time to time about the gear that the "good guys" are able to use successfully in situations like this one.
