    Aus/SA Abu Garcia reel parts suppliers

    Would be hard to find parts for that locally mate. Best bet would be to contact Rob wilson at south oz rods. He might has some bits and bobs layimg around. If not he might be able to adapt some other parts to make it work again too. Rob is located in Hampstead gardens

    Landbased Fishing darwin

    So myself and the K man are heading off to Darwin early April. We have a full day charter planned for one of them but have 2 full days up our sleeves to do some Landbased fishing. Anyone one ever done any up there? Any hints and tips would be great. Hoping to smack a couple fish that pull drag. What should we expect up there apart from the obvious barra? Any help would be fantastic!

    Buying live worms?

    When i was working in the Tackle Shop a little while ago a customer purchased a packet and headed down to the onk. couple hours later he came back with a photo of him holding a an 115cm mully he caught in the first 20mins of fishing. Was his 1st ever mully too. Have seen people use them in the salt but have been more productive in the freshwater then then the saltwater

    Small Daiwa spin reels Vs Shimano?

    I would personally look at the Daiwa LT range of Reels. for around that $150 price point you can get an Daiwa Exceler LT. Nice and smooth, light, look good and have nice drag systems on them. I mainly have higher end gear now. I lost the drag knob while out fishing a few weeks ago while up yorkes. so i needed a reel to get me by Picked up the exceler i was quite impressed by it. At the end of the day it is what feels comfortable and right for you. everybody is different and like different things best to try out a whole range of reels on your rod as Bratko mentioned and see what feels good.

    Heavy Surf Rod

    As Dylbaa said most people use the grapnel sinkers down there. 6 oz is the general size they use. The allegiance will cast 6oz plus ya bait.

    Heavy Surf Rod

    The Penn Prevail and Penn allegence in the 12ft 12-20kg models are a great surf rod for under $200. I have the allegence myself and have no issues with it. Have up to 200g cast weight aswell. They were the biggest selling surf rod in the tackle shop I was working at. Wilson mt8144 would be a nice stick aswell. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Nice weather !

    Myself and @Kuerschie went down south this morning chasing Carp on fly and bream. I had a few good looks on bream on fly but not committing and there were carp around but not really interested. Kuerschie had 3 good looks at carp but nothing committed either. Then off tomorrow morning to cook the bbq with other fellow Strike Hookers for the Onkastompa!
