  5. How to cheat at Crabbing :)

    Do we have a link to these little contraptions .... Look very portable, and the picture on the hand held unit looked very clear !!! As brutus said, not only good for crabs, whiting, and i would say, snapper as well ...... !! Nice little video guys SF
  6. Who is heading out tomorrow ?

    Been watching the Ramp Cams this morning from very early this morning Been a very steady flow of boats out from Nth Haven O'Sullies Ramp Cam is Out of Action ..... West Beach is blurry to say the least, but not a lot has left from there, as compared to Nth Haven Looks like a LOT of People, taking a "Sickie" today ..... LOL SF

    Adrian, just goes to show you just how PRISTINE your waterways are !!! Just love your photography !!! I am still waiting for the release of your "Coffee Table Book" Thanks SF
  9. Odd find at Largs beach

    VERY TASTY Critters !!! The Tails are very nice , very nice eating, just like crayfish, but just not a lot to go around, so a few more would do nicely .... SF
  10. Salt Water Storage for Cooking Crabs

    Usually best 2 days maximum, stored in a cool place .... no longer ... Should try and keep a note on the boat / even a sticker ..... "Remember the Salt water " .... SF
  11. Some days it pays to go to work

    Well Done POOPS!!! Nice when you can SCORE great tackle like that for FREE .... That is going to look very nice on the boat now .... All you need to do now, is scales and ink all over the grips ... SF
  12. Adrian, that is a HUGE difference in SAFE / UNSAFE ... Looks like it might be a while before it is safe to go back out 'wading' in your favourite rivers / creeks ... Going by the above chart ... is that 2.5 Giga Litres flowing ??? Is this due to the Snow run off, or just the huge amount of rains that you have been experiencing lately in Tassie ? SF
  13. Trout fishing the hard to get to streams/creeks...

    Gee Adrian, Don't those Trout go golden Brown when in that tannin water .. look very spectacular in the net shots .. Can't forget the Scenery shots, all I can say is WOW !!! That last shot in particular, would not surprise me if you got to see some elusive "Tassie Devils" in there Another great effort on the trout, and as usual spectacular scenery SF
  14. Big squid, east coast Tassie..

    That IS a LOT of Calamari right there ...... I did spy a bite mark near it's tip .... Probably mating time ..... reckon its dancing partner would have been just as BIG !!!! SF
  15. Tackle Guard

    I use that "Tackle Guard" as well , very good stuff .... light spray over the reel, and spray on a small rag, and wipe over as well ...... I also use light machine oil .. (Singer Sewing Machine Oil) .. very good for line rollers and handles ... cheap too .... Just remember that WD40 is not a LUBE .... it will eat grease !!!!! WD40 is a powerful solvent that dissolves lubes, so it should be used only to clean reel parts before applying lubes. Unfortunately a large number of people think it's a lube and that does a lot of harm. SF
