  1. Cheers all My mate (Matt Gorne) got a 11kg one, straight after I got mine. Steve
  2. I'm not into stinky Carp but late last year my mate Matt Gorne talked me into joining him in a metro session. By memory it was my 1st cast and I got this beast i.e. 95.5cm @ 14.36kg. Was also nice to have bumped into another S&H member while at the garage the other day, sorry mate I've forgotten your name. PS thanks to doobie for sorting out a previous post Steve
  3. Personally not a fan of the MRFAC (just another committee) but not sure if SAFA has resigned. However I'm led to believe John (someone) has resigned. Steve
  4. Mulloway numbers have declined, that's why they increased the size limit to 82cm a couple of years ago. Long story short myself and S&H Tony B were invited by FRDC to attend a full day fisheries seminar/course around 4 years ago, that was being run in every state, anyway Professor Mehdi Doroudi (Executive Director Of Fisheries and Aquaculture; at that time) attended also and give him his dues he allowed us to ask him questions (one on one) during the lunch break and I asked him why doesn't the size limit of Mulloway down the Coorong meet their own requirements, Size limi
  5. Yep Plus it will require those that work to take a day off and by memory I think they only get compensation for the travel costs. Steve
  6. Fingers crossed it all goes well ! ... the Minister will be convening the inaugural meeting of the MRFAC from 10.00 am to 2.00 pm on Wednesday 17 April 2019, at the John Pirie Motor Inn, 166-172 Warnertown Road, Port Pirie, 5540. Steve
  7. The black cord you can see in aussieDave's photo of his/our anchor set up is a piece of bungee i.e. drop the anchor, tie it off on the buoy then clip the bungee onto our anchor trolley (in your case onto your yak). If you need to follow a fish unclip the bungee from your anchor trolley (yak) and you can then come back to the buoy and clip back on. The idea of the bungee is to act as a shock absorber thus you will not need chain or a larger anchor to hold bottom. This set up is perfect if you have been burleying up your spot or you are fishing a specific piece of structure (rock etc.), i.
  8. You may be able to save a couple dollars by shopping around or you could simply go to Jaycar and get the battery and charger. Pros and cons for both. Using the original mount adds no additional cost, keeps the sounder lower and out of the way. Higher may make it easier to read and adjust but it may also be more likely to get in the way. Also consider which side you prefer to enter the yak from and mount the sounder on the opposite side imho, especially if you intend to launch into any sort of sea (shore break). I like to keep the left hand side of my yak free/uncluttered i
  9. This is what I use. A lot of yak manufactures have copied the Hobie hatch and as such the Hobie bracket fits them also i.e. battery clicks in the holder and the holder sits on the inside lip of the hatch. Some yakkers also use these but I'm old school. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Portable-DC-12V-1800-20000mAh-Super-Rechargeable-Li-ion-Lithium-Battery-Pack-AU/273408461305?hash=item3fa86a09f9:m:mkWzZDW_uf6ZSpJttoQ8d4w:rk:1:pf:0 Steve
  10. Selleys All Clear works fine i.e. most of the interstate blue water off shore yakkers install their transducer with it. Steve
  11. I sometimes fish amongst the snags on the Murray and in the mangrove creeks in the salt so I have my transducer cable protected by a short section of aluminium channel that I got from Bunnings. It is secured with 2 stainless steel screws (3mm by memory) with nyloc nuts. You can see the two screws above the water stain line. The self adhesive clip is as others have stated i.e. various types at Jaycar and if you clean the ali prior to sticking them on then they will not come off. If you need stainless steel screws, washers or nyloc nuts that Bunnings don't stock or you don't require a full pack
  12. I suspect the photos are still up on the wall i.e. go into Niks BBQ on The Lake (yep that's how it is spelt) at Mawson Lakes, the shop is located next to the roundabout and there are a couple of photos next the his freezers showing Carp, Silver Perch and even a small Murray Cod. Steve
