    Adelaide fishing

    You may be going too light. My go to is 1/8, it gets the plastic to the bottom quickly then I jerk it up through the water column then let it sink again, wind in the slack & repeat 100 times I'll use 1/12 or 1/16 on calm days or if i'm in the yak. I don't think they can feed all of them, could they? With plastics it's more about a reaction bite than a hungry one most times. Keep experimenting & you'll find what works. Congrats on that Bream

    Adelaide fishing

    I haven't caught many Bream but all I've caught I've caught on plastics. Gulp Nemesis, Jigging Shrimp, Turtle Back Worms & Sqiddgy Paddle tail Fish but not one on a Z-man Grub yet there are pics all over the Webs of Bream with them in their gobs. I mix up the retrieve with each style till something works, not too helpful but that's all I got This may be the key - weed, walls, pontoons etc etc.

    Catching Mullet info wanted

    I caught 7 on a Gulp jigging shrimp, between the foot bridge & the mouth of the Onk last winter, they were brilliant eating fresh. They may have recently entered the Onk though.

    On Yorkes I use size 4 for YFW & they catch other species as well, even small stuff. I put the point of the hook in at the base of the underside of the tail and thread them down the hook & come out in the head. This also serves to help keep the body on better. Hope this is helpful

    A good mono to mono knot please.

    One of the big ones, usually pretty good on past experiences

    A good mono to mono knot please.

    Clear line. I use the same knot tied to a Mustad Fastach Clip

    A good mono to mono knot please.

    That's an even better idea. Trying to tie knots with light line with my sausage fingers drives me nuts

    A good mono to mono knot please.

    Cheers, I can tie that one, wasn't sure about its strength though
  12. Hi all, Recently purchased a new lightweight spin combo & on advice from the sales guy, have loaded it with 4lb mono. Ill be flicking plastics mostly. I am going to use a 6lb mono leader but dont know which knot to use. The sales guy said i should use a FG knot but I cant get my head or fingers around it. As the terminal guides are quite small the knot needs to be quite slender. Some advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Southport Beach Access

    I got to the footbridge no trouble at all. Report to come
  14. When the kids were little we used to head to Normanville & stay at the jetty Caravan Park, either camping or in a cabin. We always had a great time. The beaches from Normy to Carrackalinga are great for kids & dogs. You can beach fish from Lady Bay all the way to Carry, Second Valley Jetty is not far away & neither are the rocks at Myponga Beach. The cafe at Normy Jetty has recently changed hands & is apparently great & Yankallila Bakery is famous for its goods. I think it is a better spot than Victor, less crowded & less commercial. Cheers
