  1. A couple of years ago i got a feed from Henley South , They were all on the float. I used my fishing net to grab em but a crab rake would have been easier, less water resistance. I was wading around the flat near the Torrens outlet flicking plastics so I guess it was run out then run in tides, probably with a large variation between high & low. I've seen people with BBQ tongs in the gutter that runs or ran pretty much from the Torrens to Tennyson. Good luck & let us know if you get any.
  2. Nice office. Can't wait for some warmer weather to get back into it
  3. The packaging suggests 140 yards but the spool isn't full anymore. Whatever it was certainly steamed off
  4. just read dogtooths report, eerily similar
  5. it was great fun but the not knowing........ i thought a kingie of any size would have fought more?
  6. G'day all, I got caught up in the hype around the new Bait Junkie lures, watched all the vids I could find then went & bought 8 different packs, 4 grub & 4 minnow. I usually use the Zmans with some success so was keen to try the newcomer. My plan was to fish the Junkies around Vincent next week, in areas that i have had success with the Zmans. But like a kid with a new toy, I just couldn't wait. Headed down the Port yesterday, low tide, to Snowdens, which I was hoping was out of the strong SW winds. It was windy but i took the chance. 2-4kg rod with 4lb mono on a 1000 r
  7. They were quite common back in the day. I bought a new one a couple of years ago at the Vincent sports store, sadly closed now but it lives over there
  8. G'day all, That time is nearly upon us when the days are longer, the sun shines brightly & months have an R in them. Lets go CRABBING . I'm looking to buy a new rake of a similar design to the pic but haven't been able to find one. I've had this one since the 80's & I don't think it'll last much longer The round head catches less weed & disturbs the bottom less so I think it is a better rake than the more common variety. Cheers, in advance
  9. Heading to Victor. The house overlooks the Hindmarsh River mouth so far enough away from the town centre to have some peace. Was hoping to do some Mullet fishing but my available time has been reduced due to "social" activities Might find an opportunity for a quick flick at the Salmon. I'll head to Chiton Rocks & see if Doobies report is accurate
  10. Indeed it is, race & ethnicity have nothing to do with it. I was hoping that it was clear that i wasn't singling out any one or other sector of the community
  11. G'day all, I'm wondering how we educate the general public as to size limits of various local & frequently caught species. I spent a couple of hours having a flick today, firstly off the Largs jetty & then at Birkenhead for a few follows but nothing else. At Largs were a group of people, early 20's, fishing & crabbing. They caught a couple of ST, small looking to me, which they were going to keep. I asked them if they knew what they had caught & the minimum length, which they did. So how did you measure them? Oh, I put them up against my phone? WTF? H
  12. G'day Larry & welcome. Vincent has a very, very short jetty, maybe 10 metres at low tide, popular with kids. The wharf runs parallel to the water & is a popular spot for the kids, oldies & jumpers, a few crabs & lots of trumpeters. Decent amount of squid at times on a late high tide. There are squid, snook, small salmon, flatties etc from the breakwater in & out of the marina. The local gar guys walk out on the spit at low tide & seem to do well, make sure you wear something on your feet as the Razor fish will cut them to pieces, old runners are
  13. I will start by saying that i have never caught a metro YFW but......................................... have caught a few at Pt Vincent I generally catch & use the nippers same day but I guess if you keep em well they'll be ok. So, low tide to collect then fish the run in tide almost straight away, running ball sinker, # 4 or # 6 long shank hook. I walk back in with the tide until the bite stops. I've seen folk @ Seacliff catching at both low & high tide, the tides aren't bad tomorrow so I'd try Seacliff around the low. Hope this helps & let us know
