    Here's a six minute video I made using the video of my Canon camera a week ago, only problem is I can't get the action shots of hooking a trout with it... Still it will give you an idea of what it is like fishing a small tannin stream more so than what a photo does I suppose.. I had to put it on YouTube to get it on the site.. cheers Adrian

    I've only done a couple of tests with carp versus pilchards as bait - and it performs well by comparison on little fish. I salt mine down so they last the season and use smallish chunks on flasher rigs - beats playing mushy pilchard roulette with the frozen baits. Heres one I cut up last week - it would be great fresh but I need mine to last, so it has to be salted. It lasts forever and can be refrozen multiple times - some blokes dont even keep it in the fridge and say it lasts for a couple of months

    Lots of time matey , try different areas , keep trying , and then try some more , fishing is hard some times , but if you put in the hard yards , you will find them . I am still trying , but that's the beauty about fishing , trying to work it out

    DIY flounder spear

    ahh and you'll need a pvc pipe sheath for the points, so you only stab things that you intend to stab

    Cut out the shape you want with a dremel or angle grinder - then blast with the heat gun until it gets floppy - then shape with gloved hands - hold it in place and run cold water over it to set quick and you're done

    This is a picture from the web site our boat. Double catch over midnight caught 4 then had to wait til 12 then caught another 4. Berley techniques were talked about height above bottom at different time of the tide, trace setup to minimise dogsharks and rays talked about. Some GPS marks around Ardrossan given to us but have not used them for years. Still use most of these ideas today just not marks.

    Snapper fishing lessons - worth it?

    Barker Inlet... St Kilda side of the Island.. I've also caught Snapper there on an incoming tide at 3:00pm in the afternoon too.. cheers Adrian

    Snapper fishing lessons - worth it?

    All I ever used for Snapper were Tommies, used to buy then whole in 5 kg lots (or what I caught) then filleted them unscaled on the way out to where I anchored & fished for them, used the heads & guts for burley.. Had plenty of success on the Snapper with just the Tommie Ruff as bait.. A good spot was sitting off the end of the main Outer Harbor breakwater as well as the second channel marker, behind Torrens Island along the edge of the outer channel in line with the channel markers also gave up good size snapper.. always fished at night for them in those areas.. I'm going back a very long time now, but there's still no reason you wont catch them there.. unless there's been some rule changes.. cheers Adrian

    Snapper fishing lessons - worth it?

    Hey mate I have found the snapper in metro adelaide a bit slow in the last few years but they are still around - just in smaller numbers. I suggest joining a fishing club (I'm part of the NDSFC), as you get a lot of help and can tap into some unreal knowledge (and if you are lucky, some closely guarded marks). There are also guys who do fishing tuition, such as Brad Corrie and John Winslet (ex charter operator), who are also also brilliant and have their fingers on the pulse of the local scene. The link you send seems to be quite old and dated... David

    The biggest thing I am missing at the moment is burley techniques and where to fish. On the west coast you just fished reefy areas on the drift and eventually got lucky. In Vic you sound around till you see a big school then drop on or near them. Both cases you could just use cut up pillies. Is this the case here or how do you do your Berley? I’m half thinking of getting a mulcher and putting some carp through it and freezing into blocks. cheap, but would it work? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    G'day Fair enough. My wife has mastered snapper fillet cooking, olive oil and butter (real 100% butter) fried very gently until just cooked. Sensational. Ike Jime and bleeding the snapper improve the flesh markedly. Very nice cold as well. Cheers Rod

    DIY flounder spear

    Most of my materials come from curb side rubbish collection piles - so there is no shortage of old mops to choose from. And yeah - improvised tool use is one of my specialties - Just yesterday I was faced with getting some huge sturdy card boxes into the bin - the stanley knife was breaking my balls - Cordless Jigsaw made short work of it

    DIY flounder spear

    First make a piece of junk out of a metal mop handle to see the limitations of such a beast. Then beef everything up - drill holes into heavy curtain rod - cut steel rod in half and hammer into pole - add hose clamps - sharpen the tips - and you're ready to put holes into some flounder A flounder guru set me straight and said you need a heavy pole and long tines. The heavy pole makes penetration a breeze especially on boney headed flathead - and no barbs makes getting them off the spear too easy

    Might just get in the poo when the missus/mum/gf discovers you've nicked the handle to the mop ! I like the improvised grinder too

    Tumby bay

    Southern end of the bay, where the bay curves around and 'peninsulars' towards Tumby Island. Offers some good protection from southerlies. Check it out on Google maps. Some really nice structure. Don the waders/wetsuit and go hard. have nfi how the area fires but looks really sexy. Had one session a 18 months back and pulled a nice feed of yfw and flatties on sp. All else some nice razorfish on a decent low tide. As Del mentions, 2nd creek. Looked pretty good too.

    Tumby bay

    my home town, The local jetty used to be good fishing.. plenty of beaches around too. Second creek is not far out. we used to fish and snorkel this area a lot. Ski beach has some nice land based flicking to be done too. The marina is holding some decent fish from what i hear. Always got Coffin bay, Port Niell, Port Lincoln close by too

    End of RecFish SA?

    And in the mean time the rec fishing industry can't be bothered defending itself, we can scream until we're blue in the face but we're only hobbyists but if the industry screamed they would have a much better chance of getting some cut through with gov.
