    Braid to flurocarbon

    The FG knot maybe the best, but in normal fishing situations ,after snags ect what you find is regardless of knot if one of the proven ones tied well ,the leader snaps off near the lure, on the leader and not the braid and continually gets shortened.Reason for this is braid is stronger per diameter, example a 4 lb braid tied to a 6lb fluro leader,the leader will snap every time .If the fluro snaps close to the knot its a retie job which sucks, doesnt matter whether you have an fg knot or whatever, its the LEADER and not the braid that snaps 90 % plus. Best advice IMO is to tie an extra long leader, that even after snapping a few times keeps a reasonable length and saves having to tie the joining knot whilst out on the water,which is nothing but a pain in the dark,in the wind, wading, off the rocks ect ect.

    I had a live fibre explode on me one day,and when I say explode it literally did,my mate heard it and yelled out WTF was that, sounded like a firecracker going off,almost like it was under some kind of huge stress and it shatterd.

    New Artificial Reef at West Lakes

    I guess on a featurless bottom anything that sticks out will be an attractant.Hopefully not too much taxpayers money went in to building these things, a one off day out with a barge and a heap of old concrete blocks or bricks from a building site would of been a permanent , cheaper solution. Not having a go and appreciate the effort, and time spent, but yeah those plastic whatever they ares don"t look overly flash.
  4. Cheers saltflyer,what interests me is the 795lb 11 + foot tagged tiger shark that is in SA at the moment[being tracked]...according to the sites tag it is off ceduna right now
  5. And just to show how little we actually know about them, this baby 4 days old caught in the Mediteranian , well genetic tests show these are linked to the Australian population, not the South African ones ,which is closer to there . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfgtS2nYfdU
  6. And I remember when the news broke out of this monster from SAs South East. http://www.elasmollet.org/Cc/Ken_Jury.html

    Action Discs

    I have heard the smallest sized ones matched up with a small SP like squidgey fish or wriggler ect are good for Trout.
  10. I reckon smoked squid could be used as slingshot rubber I tried doing it once and if you wanna hear your mates saying its got nice flavor but its a bit chewie then this is the method

    Vintage Big Shark Fishing

    Its history, please dont shoot me down in flames JMO....the human race was uneducated in those times... a big thing in mankind is the greatest mindset to be No 1 and , in the US it was Bears,In Africa it was Rhinos Elephants,Leoapards and whatever... but in hindsight what was the point in going out and killing the supreme predator of the ocean ,just to stand at a gantry with it hanging upside dead.......

    Gulp SPs currently $5 at Big W

    Nice one UP,made me laugh , only a fellow fisho could understand another of his kin whipping out the mobile in big w and taking pics of plastic worms soaked in scent
  14. A bit of a non issue for me, being completely left handed ,footed as bad as anyone can imagine, spending time fishing with right handers in the family from a youth up the river yorkes ect everyones reels except for mine were set up handle to the right , so somehow adapted to winding right but still cast left. My brother bowls left handed bats right in cricket, and be hard for some to believe in a game years ago he took 8 for 23 with the ball bowling left handed and made 123 with the bat right handed in the one game.

    Waders - what are you wearing?

    Also remember with full neoprenes, .......err...they are very unforgiving for us less than perfect fishos,so if you have a beer gut,skinny legs, or any other feature of interest, they will accentuate it. Strongly advised you take them off before getting out the car at a servo,going into a shop ect...to avoid funny stares !
