  1. Hi Matey ,

    I have a Silstar Power Tip 1 piece 6ft ,PT-601TBL ,Baitcasting Rod ( overhead) .

    Great for Snapper , in very good condition if you are interested .

    I have no use for it anymore ,as I use spinning reels now .

    Its 4-6kg I believe cheers .

      Hey bud! Thanks for the offer! I should have said graphite. It's going to be used for flicking lures for callop, cod and the occasional Barra trip. Cheers

    BAIT FISH …………….easy as , good fun and you catch more fish . STOP looking at videos', thinking it is easy , because , it isn't . sorry but all videos make it look , like you catch fish every time, wrong …… just my 2 cents...

    Adelaide fishing

    I am Sorry a lot will not agree , but I have tried the lure thing , and soft plastics , maybe I have no patience , so I stick with bait , live bait or fresh cockles ,worms ,clickers what ever , maybe I am no good at lure fishing , but I cant stand fishing for 3hrs casting lures , and then try again for 6 hours for maybe one fish , F@#k that , bait for me . IMHO
  4. Sorry a little off of the above said rods and blanks , but on the subject , I have a 13ft surf rod made by Len Butterworth ( not for Len Butterworth ) . I have had this rod for 30 years ,and was 1 piece ,but had it made into a 2 piece ,as it is 13ft long ,and hard to travel in a normal car ,without roof racks. It is a 13ft , 2 piece Powergraph SS5156G . Surf rod . Just wondering if they still hold value , if anyone is in the know ? cheers .

    Why don't I catch fish?

    If you are going for garfish , I suggest always move your bait a little ,sometimes they don't even move your float ,they are just sucking on the gents ,just light lifts now and again as sometimes you will feel some weight ,and you know they are there . Also check your maggots on the hook , if they have had the guts sucked out , you know they are there ,so you just have to work for them . As said above I have fished for over 40 yrs ,and Gar can be very finicky at times ,and they will do your head in . The last trip I only managed 7 gar ,the time before 37 gar ,the time before that NOT ONE GAR . So don't give up , Gar is one of the harder fish to master at times , but worth the effort as YUMMO to eat . CHEERS
  6. OK give up, maybe your dinner after a Monday fish ?
