  1. Entry Level Open Boat

    Hi mate. Exciting times ahead getting your first tub! Don't overthink it cos you'll want to upgrade within the first year anyway. It's a vicious cycle!
  2. Large 6" Praying Mantis..

    Nice pic Adrian. Watched a doco on them that was an eye opener. In some cases after mating, while the male is catching his breath, the female turns around, grabs him and chews his head clean off. Nasty girls.......
  3. A 1.6 kg KG Whiting caught in Tassie..

    Been onboard a few charters around the YP foot over the years where 1 kilo KGs popped up on a regular basis. They were great on the table depending who cooked them. The great Bill Kelly was the master. We think it had a lot to do with his pure pig lard deep fryers .
  4. Advice - family weekend escape - Fleurieu Peninsula

    TL, if the hound is an inside doggie and going with you, check out the PetLet chain of accommodations. They have heaps of rentals down that way and the dog is welcome inside in all of them. There is a couple of cracker ones around Encounter Lakes (PetLet#4) Bream fishing off the back door step!!! Oh, and there is playgrounds and stuff too Cheers, Greg.
  5. Greasing bearings on new reels

    Jeeez.....What would it cost Shimano to fit shielded bearings from new? .0001 Yen? I'm a Shimano fan from the dawn of time but this one is disappointing. Cheers for the heads up Knackers.

    Cheers Meggs. That album made my day!!!
  7. Agree that the blind troll is the way to locate the schools but I'll let the rest of the crew look after that and my outfit sits in the launcher waiting for the action to start! We do all of our tuna fishing off Pondilowie Bay and the way the fish behaved varied with every trip. Our biggest fish wasn't even caught on a lure.
  8. I like my leader to be well and truly on the spool when the fish is near the boat. Speeds up the capture I think. Minimum 2 rod lengths. As for lures, I like to wait till the fish are found and launch Adagio 125 heavies. Would rather catch one on a sticky than bag out on the troll.
  9. Snapper Opening 2017

    Great work Samboman. Now I am really missing my boat!!! And your mate is a vid wizz. Well done
  10. Who is heading out tomorrow ?

    Good luck tomorrow arvo Snapperhead. For the first time in many years, we won't be out there on "opening day". But luckily for me, my wife has allowed me to paint the house ready for Christmas........
  11. Jacmac, if you need an "anchor bitch", let me know. No boat this summer and I'm struggling already! New hull not here till late Feb. The SBTs can take their time getting here this year!!!!!!
  12. Goolwa Cockles

    That's good news Aff. Last two seasons have been tough for size. Plenty of cockles but a lot of measuring. We'll make the effort now you've given us the heads up
  13. Odd find at Largs beach

    Off topic Knackers, but how do you find your scallop beds. Passed on info or skilled sonar reading? Love my scallops but never had any luck metro.
  14. Top Shot mono

    It's the leader mono (50m spools). The "plus" version is a bit "stiffer" especially above 24kg but still ties perfect knots. Still better than any fluro Iv'e used and cheaper.
  15. Top Shot mono

    We have used Jinkai for years in various strains and love it. Supple as and ties great knots. I tie 15kg braid to 20kg Jinkai mono with an improved albright without doubling the braid and have never had an issue. I run up to 4 rod lengths of mono and the memory is acceptable. Cheers, Greg.
