  2. I don't know if those of you who fish the smaller rivers etc have this site set on your computer, I thought it may be of some use to those who fish the freshwater rivers/streams. It will give you the rivers heights that may be helpful, it's the same one I use for the rivers here in Tasmania.. Take note height etc of the day you fish one of these rivers, it will come in handy to know when the level is most suited for fishing and may save a long drive after a heavy dose of rain, or even better a worthy drive if the water level is at the ideal height for fishing. cheers Adria

  3. Apart from Rex Hunt getting rid of the scallop cage dredgers way back in the day - here some updates on what the Vic authorities are doing for Port Phillip Removing nets from Port Phillip Bay In 2014, the Victorian Government announced a commitment to grow recreational fishing in Victoria through a number of measures, including the phasing-out of all commercial netting in Port Phillip Bay by 2022. The Government is on track to deliver on this important commitment. What's new? Consultation has concluded on the final management arranagements to end netting in Po

    As a kid at Port Vic we would use potatoes on squid jags if we couldn't get any tommies. This type of jag. Works a treat.

  6. They will still make & will make shit loads of money. Most if not all exported to Sydney markets & or overseas for maximum profit. Unless longlining is stopped along with trawling, netting etc including the crab baron, then recs in SA will just get shafted. Recs produce Billions of dollars in revenue as compared to Pros who only make a small contribution but with maximum devastation by raping & pillaging SA waters. PIRSA here are just pathetic to say the least & thats being polite. Politicians appointed here to manage fisheries have absolutely no idea about what is happen

  7. Catching plenty legal ones as a bycatch when chasing whiting. All have to be put back. Snapper starts early next year but probably with a severe rec limit. Almost not worth while chasing at all - while the Pros quota increases. Bloody idiots here in SA.

  8. Nah -no good - the double loop didn’t do much got to 5.2 kg or around 11.5lb, before cutting the 30lb mono. The wire is too thin even when you double it

  9. and the way I usually tie them gives a more laid back presentation - good for long distance casting or shallow presentations Here they are side by side

    Afraid not. Ben from BK Custom Tackle in Tasmania. He does a great job as these are other colours that were overpainted rather than clean blanks. Regards, HBt.

  15. Honestly? Caught more legal snaps including my pb since they were banned than ever before, it turns out that I should have been trying not to catch them all along, especially on lures, look forward to keeping the odd one or two 50cm or so bycatch snapper I catch.

    Yeah we drove over a school of monster gars with whiting underneath, 30m from the ramp. I was heavily hinting that I though we should drop anchor and burley. But it wasnt my boat and they were heading out to a mark they had done well on. After 3 drops of the anchor, following local internet guru tips and only wrasse to show for it - I was bighting my tongue. But then the locals kicked it old school and went searching for prominent weed beds with long patches of sand leading up to them. With a fair bit of polaroiding - a couple of half hearted - "Should we drop here's" they final

  20. Yeah Im finding I'm willing to sacrifice thinness for stuff thats easy to bend - the .90 gal wire has the strength I need and is fat enough to not cut my leaders. I gave the wire harness a go yesterday - and it has its draw backs - I suspect it might hurt hook up ratios and its harder to clear the weed from the twisted metal

    Rusting problem with mine was I kept them in an ice-cream tub (no lid) and they got salt water (spray etc) in the tub... and I didnt empty.. Now the "new ones" are in sealed food containers and cant get wet.

    I use womens hair clips to push through the hole. Have to trim to length first (cut of knobs from ends) then fit and tap sinker with hammer. Cheap from supermarkets. THey do rust so keep them dry - when not in use.

    80lb brown stainless makes a more subdued package and should hold on the bigger hook

    Yeah drilling was my first instinct aswell. but my cheap drill bits suck. I snapped one, dulled 2 and finally got through with the 4th. I even cut the steel on an angle so I wouldnt have to drill through the full 6mm of steel. once you get into a rhythm with tying them up, it’s pretty quick. And I don’t have the bits to make drilling an option.

    Knot help please

    I'm usually using the FG knot, If I need the knot to go through the guides it's always the FG knot if it doesn't need to go through the guides I will sometimes use the double uni. I'm using braid pretty much for all my fishing these days & when I'm fishing from the beach/surf & hefting out lures or big baits I tie a leader long enough to go onto the spool that way it's mono on the finger & not braid when casting, this requires the FG knot as it has to go past the bail roller Yorky

    Unusual baits?

    Not the most PC method but Ive heard of guys melting cheese into a chux bench wipe. The material with embedded cheese become a super tough bait that tastes like the real thing. Also seen guys bind cotton wool to the hook and dip it in the brown gunk inside a cray fishes head - Dynamite bait when drifted unweighted down a pylon
