  1. My son has 2 marine dealerships,he closed one down last month due to how the economy being slow before the virus started.Not sure if the second one will survive,lots of hard work over the years to get himself established.
  2. By using a tapered leader pre sold in 5m lengths usually 5 lengths on a spool.One end of the leader is 25lb,the other end is 50lb.They come in different combinations and sizes and makes it easier for smaller knots going through guides.Bought mine from UK.
  3. Not at this stage,they are more concerned about people be in groups.Can change just see what they are saying when you are getting closer to leaving.
  4. Everyone has there reasons why they want this FG knot,for me when i switched to 90% lure fishing i wanted the best knot for $20,$40,$60 lures getting thrown about and least amount LO$$.
  5. Now that's a nice place to fish,thanks for the video
  6. Many things to consider Species,rod,reel,line,rod guides,heavy/light line on what rod,distance,wind,alcohol consumed.
  7. When i was yakking i'd have 3 rods and reels all pre-made some with the double uni or the FG depending what species i'm chasing on the day.Always try not to be in a position in having to tie knots just change to another pre made outfit. Now i'm in a boat and take 4-5 pre made rods/reels
  8. For heavier fish FG,for small fry double uni
  9. The answer is some fish will die if they are under sized and being thrown back or for those who play the game of catch and release only which has never made any sense why people need to do that. Some lures are expensive and digging them out wouldn't do much in keeping the fish alive same with baited hooks or break offs with hooks stuck in the mouth now the fish can no longer feed. So what's new or different..nothing much this has been going on like this in my 50 years fishing
  10. A simple test to know what the lure action is like with clips is to attach the clip to the lure,pick up the lure by the clip and sway the lure from side to side like a swimming action.In 99% of the time they work out fine to use,some of the small clips virtually weigh nothing but can be 10kg breaking strain,give it a shot and most likely you'll move on and forget about re-tying knots.
  11. Just to clarify as either way works but the lure,colour and action will decide if your hooking up.Main reason most use a clip is to change lures quicker.
  12. Braid to leader use your favorite knot then to a lure clip,nothing fancy in this set up but clean and tidy. Swap lures whenever and as a example you can use this clip but there are others as some can be difficult to get onto a lure.The clips need to be light so they don't interfere with lure action If running braid swivels will do nothing to help twist,i mainly fish lures year long and this set up is so simple.. "KISS "system
  13. Back in the early days when sail ships started carting bananas they found out on long trips the bananas would go off by there use by date and that's where the "no bananas on board" started. Now people believe it as bad luck to have them on a fishing boat.lol As they say keep telling people the same story over and over for long enough and they will believe it
