    fishing the onkaperinga

    Below is an map of where I have good success on catching Bream on baits. Resident Bream always inhabit these areas so your always in with a good chance of some nice bream. method i use is virtually a swivel tied to my main line. with between 2lb and 4lb leader line to 2 snelled size 2 or 4 hooks with either a whole whitebait or prawn with a half hitch tied on the tail. I like fish upstream of the river because of the low tidal movements, the abundance of Resident fish and the fact there are plenty of spots to easily access and fish from. Plus there is plenty of Snags and structure for the fish to hold too....

    Reel Servicing

    From what i'm aware Most of the tackle stores send customers reels to get serviced by Rob Wilson at South Oz Rods. If it is a Shimano Reel or Daiwa Reel depending on whats needed they get sent back to the company and they service them.

    Surf rods

    Only difference between the 2 rods are the prevail has "casting" K series guides and it has a gloss finish. same blank to my knowledge. I have the Allegiance and never had any dramas with it. I don't think the guides make to much of an difference, its more Wank factor look then anything. but If you can get a prevail for around the same price as the Allegiance you might aswell go for the prevail!

    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.
