    Breeding maggots without meat

    a good method to breed maggots to eliminate the smell is after the blow wrap the blown fish or meat in 5 or six layers of news paper place in the bottom of a bucket then fill the bucket with clean dry beach sand, when you see wriggle tracks on the top of the sand it is time to sieve the sand you will have clean white maggots , I the pour boiling water over the left over news paper to kill any remaining maggots then bury it deep in the garden makes good fertiliser

    G'day fishos, Hope you're all well! For my Year 11 studies, I have chosen to research the decline of snapper stocks in the Gulf of St Vincent. I have conducted a survey about this topic to help conduct with my research. I would appreciate if you could take the time out the fill in my survey! Tight lines, Tom https://goo.gl/forms/ZoFqejgdEeyGMwID3

    Breeding maggots without meat

    Spot on Lofty, that's how I did mine too.. I didn't worry about the smell. kept them jar in of bran in the bottom of the fishing bait fridge. They go into hibernation and last for ages. Did leave them in the fridge in the house once, but somehow the jar got knocked over just after I put them in it. Seeing as I had some air hole in the lid..Well you can guess what happened after that.. That;s why I finished up with a bait fridge & freezer in the shed.. cheers Adrian

    Breeding maggots without meat

    I have found that "meat" bred gents tended to explode when putting them on the hook ?. They were definitely larger & fatter than the bought ones but looked unappetizing on the hook. I don't breed them anymore as I cannot be bothered. I too buy the long life gents now & found they do last quite some time, so for the amount they cost, more cost effective for me. I just keep the unused gents in the fridge until next time.

    If you’re looking for something mid tier just to get the job done and be reliable, I would highly recommend the Shimano raider rods, either in the rack or bream model in line class 1-3kg and a sienna 1000/2000/2500 reel. This combo will be more than adequate for many years of fishing and well within your budget.

    Amazing - brings back memories - wish drones were around back in the old AAA days. I remember months out before the freshwater state championships, we would head down to Tip Top Bakery at Maylands and get all of the breadcrumbs that were destined for scrap. Im talking tubs full of the stuff. Then weekend after weekend, we'd head to our chosen spot, spend the night making burley bombs, and literally bombard the backwater. Did this up until a week or so before the comp - and then on comp morning - arriving to the location it would look like a bubbling spa bath of monster carp. Youd not only be catching them all day, youd have them swimming between your legs. The only down side was carrying the bags of fish out of the swamp to the car - sometimes it was a very long walk!

    Source: https://pir.sa.gov.au/alerts_news_events/news/fisheries_and_aquaculture/final_line-up_for_the_new_ministers_recreational_fishing_advisory_council_announced FINAL LINE-UP FOR THE NEW MINISTER’S RECREATIONAL FISHING ADVISORY COUNCIL ANNOUNCED Monday 25 March 2019 The Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council has been finalised with the announcement of the five successful individual representatives to complete the nine-member council. Shane Mensforth, David Scholefield, Amanda Whitehorn, Peter Teakle and Brian Wheadon will join the four appointed recreational fishing organisation representatives to provide feedback and advice to government on recreational fishing development, initiatives and big picture policy issues that impact the sector. Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone said the finalising of the Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council is another election commitment delivered by the Marshall Liberal Government. “I’m delighted to announce today the five individual representatives elected by the fishing public, to complete the nine-member Minister’s Recreational Fishing Advisory Council,” said Minister Whetstone. “The Marshall Liberal Government’s commitment to refreshing representation for recreational fishers has been achieved through a transparent, open consultation and voting process. “The voting process has been transparent and historic - for the first time in South Australian Government history, Blockchain technology was used for the voting process. Blockchain is an exciting emerging technology which is extremely secure and already used all over the world to perform valuable transactions.” Minister Whetstone said that voting was done using the preferential method and counted using the proportional representation model. “By ensuring votes flowed through a preferential system, each vote has counted,” said Minister Whetstone. “I thank all the candidates who put their hand up and nominated, and every recreational fisher who voted – you have made your voice heard, and these five individuals will represent you on the Council. “Recreational fishing provides significant social and economic benefits to our state. For some time there has been a need to enhance the dialogue and communication between recreational fishers and the South Australian Government, which is what this group aims to achieve. “I am looking forward to working with all nine members to further our commitment to South Australia’s diverse and active recreational fishery to improve the fishing experience.” Ministerial Recreational Fishing Advisory Council members Shane Mensforth David Scholefield Amanda Whitehorn Peter Teakle - inland fisher Brian Wheadon - representing the tackle sector Tracey Tito - representing FishinSA and the South Australian Fishing Alliance John Thomas - representing FishinSA Ian Fitzgerald - representing RecFish SA Graham Keegan - representing the South Australian Fishing Alliance

    Put your fish frames in a fine chicken mesh , let them get blown wrap in news paper, then bury , bring out and shake ,all gents come out with a little fish crap ,pick out fish bits ,easy as , can also have it on a pole if you don't like the smell .

    Yep, that's the way to do it. Even 1 or 2 sheets extra folded up newspaper sheets and put under the newspaper with the meat in it will give extra 'support'

    Breeding maggots without meat

    I have now returned to breeding my own gents for 1 pure reason - twice now, I have purchased a container of long life gents and both within a 2 weeks were 3/4 dead. Each was purchased from a different tackle shop and I'm not sure how 'old' the stock was or for what ever reason, but at $6 a tub for something that should 'last' for say 2 months, I was annoyed. I used to use fish frames/head but agree the smell is pretty bad, and to also get the gents out from within the heads was difficult also. Tip: use disposable gloves to help protect hands from absorbing the smell Now, instead of fish remains, I use a couple of chicken thighs. I find the smell is not as bad, but is still smelly. Someone also mentioned to me recently, just like kelp as mentioned, to bury the 'food' within some sheets of newspaper under dry sand in a bucket. I tried this about 3 weeks ago (with sand in bottom of bucket, then the 'ingredients', then more sand) and confirm there is no smell in the air during the process - unless you stick your nose real close. But did notice some blowies still hanging around the bucket, a couple which even laid some babies on top of the sand. I didn't have any gents rise to the top of the sand, probably because I put plenty of sand to making sure to cover it right up. The bonus is, the gents are much bigger than purchased ones. Personally I wouldn't bother going to the trouble of making a maggot trap bucket - too much hassle.

    Plano tackle storage with rust inhibitor

    ...and the price is ??? Just spray some Inox or even WD40 in the box & on your lures. Have done this for years & works for me.

    GLISS fishing line

    Poor abrasion resistance, very thin diameter, frays over time and need to cut it back every few sessions. Can compensate by going heavier. Overall not bad if you can get it for a cheap price.

    Smoked Tommies/Gar.

    Hi Doobie, as said above I just rub in a little brown sugar (raw) and a little salt. The tommies and Mackerel ,that I caught awhile back ,I fillet and do the rub thing, and fill my little metho burner to the brim ,when it runs out of metho they are smoked ,around 15......20 mins . I gave a lot away and all loved it . Mackerel is the favourite.

    If you have a sewing machine handy just make ya own! A cheap $3 tarp cut out a bit fold in half sew up each side then cut a length for the strap fold in half and again sew along the length then just attach to bag! If you want a pocket just cut out the size and sew 3 sides to the main bag before you sew that together! There easy as and very little cost. I used to make a couple at once and they would last for a few years before i threw them away and made another!.....

    I have the "ugly stick" bag.. Why? I liked the little pocket with the box for lures.. and the material looked a lot tougher than the Alvey one.. Thompsons is my local.. Been there a few times last/this year.. always get one or two silvers with lures and always lots of undersized ones.. You can thank the local Pro Fisher for raping the area.. I wish they ban them in metro...... Great spot for it..

    If you are standing in the water then may be a scaling bag tied to the belt might be more convenient,i got a Alvey bag and found it awkward casting lures or when standing knee deep the scaling bag will keep the fish alive.Just another option. https://www.bcf.com.au/p/neptune-scaler-bag/127061.html https://www.hookedonline.com.au/jarvis-walker-fish-keeper-bag-with-2-inch-mesh-dra

    I've got the normal one. Not really much to them. Not sure why you would buy the deluxe one. the normal one has enough storage for tools.
