  1. I think we have a winner! Looked very similar to the older ones on Google image search, so his must've been fairly new. Thanks for your help mate, was driving me nuts!
  2. 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
  3. I also think the tagging competition could be adding fuel to the fire. Everyone heading there, in for a chance.
  4. I was keen to check it out opening week, but seeing the posts about the chaos and the poor handling, and sheer lack of respect has turned me right off it. I'll be giving it a while before I head over. It's extremely disapointing being only a couple days in. Would not be surprised if they take water access away as a temporary measure.
  5. Yeah, I'm thinking that's it. Never happened before and even ones with the hook in the lip are bleeding heavy so unsure if they are dislodging the hook mid fight. Thanks for the advice guys, definitely going to give it a go!
  6. Hi guys, I need some help. The last few times I've been out have been soft plastic sessions along North Haven, outer harbour. Im breaking my drought and managing to entice a few ST's which I am stoked about, however, every one basically dies in the process. They are swallowing the hooks, and are suffering serious damage in Gill areas. They come to the surface already bleeding heavily, and most hook themselves on the drop, so I don't think it is an issue of striking too hard, and it's not a handling issue. I'm using 2"/2.5" curl tails and flick baits with jig heads of 1/12 o
  7. I mostly buy the zman grubs myself in motor oil as that's the one plastic I have the most luck on. I always try new colours and brands, including the plastics soaking in scent but never seem to use them and they dry up. Hard bodies I have no idea, so I generally find myself seeking the advice of an expert to show me the light. I am also guaranteed to snag them all so price is usually a factor.
  8. Cheers guys! Thought i was starting to lose it for a second there
  9. Hi guys, in need of a new outfit. After decent combo for light soft plastics. Budget $100/$150. Doesn't have to be amazing, coming off a fairly old rod so anything will be an improvement. Mostly chasing Redfin/Trout in the hills and Bream, ST's in the metro area. Cheers!
  10. Ventured out this morning, with no plan at all, which was evident by the results at Noon. Packed light, just some Zman soft plastics and a light rod, very handy when moving constantly. After having a flick around West Lakes, Outer Harbour, North Haven, and Snowdens, I found myself in the middle of Port Adelaide. Plenty of fish at each spot, just not interested in my fake bait. Finally found a huge school of small ST's, managed about 5 in quick succession and then called it a day. One fish however, had this huge gut on it, very abnormal relevant to the size of the fish, so thought I wo
  11. Love your work mate! Inspiration for me to get off my ass
  12. Cheers guys! Now just waiting for my wallet to get fatter, before i can splurge.
