    Kayak Sounder DIY Installation

    I hear you with the ram ball, that's why I have mine in a recess on the side of the Outback. I'm a roof-topper too so I like nothing penetrating the flat surface of the top of the yak when not set up.

    Anchor setup like this is what Lure's talking about.

    You should no issues charging the battery with a normal charger if you're using one like in Lure's post above, I use a standard car charger for mine. I use the ram ball and a spring loaded connector to my head unit, it works well. I also use the Hobie, I don't know what it's called, plug thing to pass the cable through the hull, it allows three cables to be passed through and comes with multiple sizes of grommets to seal it.

    I use the set up that Lure has posted above except I use the 9AH battery, it's a cheap consumable part for me, I'm lucky if they last 12 months before the salt water environment corrodes the terminals away but they're fairly cheap and readily available.

    I'm a big fan of a shoot through transducer set up myself unless you have a side scan one. I had one on an arm that I originally got with my kayak but it'd kick up all the time. I just find shoot through so hassle free, all I have to do is connect the battery and the head unit and I'm away.

    Buying live worms?

    Sports Fishing Scene has great tube worms, I was reading a report recently of a guy that bought these worms and bagged out on YFW.

    The Port Adelaide River Monster..

    Yeah, that's some good fiction. Note the credits at the end, they are all playing a part.

    Hi Kuerschie, That's definitely a distinctive set up, I'll keep an eye out. Did they get his Mirage Drive? Hobies are pretty useless without it, I always store mine separately in the house if I leave the yak on the car. Bink's will also look out for anyone looking to buy just a Mirage Drive, it's unusual to have a Hobie and need a new Mirage Drive without having the old one. If they did it has a serial number which may be helpful. Dave

    Nice weather !

    Couldn't get out either last weekend, the conditions felt fantastic while I was working in the garden at home all weekend. I'm thinking of doing a Port River session tomorrow night to make up for missing out though.

    NZ Snapper Industry

    Where are the groups that want to represent rec fishers? They should be making sure every South Australian knows this and that PIRSA are trashing our economy giving all our resource to commercial fishers for $9/kg when as a rec fishing resource the same resource is worth ten times as much to the economy.

    End of RecFish SA?

    And in the mean time the rec fishing industry can't be bothered defending itself, we can scream until we're blue in the face but we're only hobbyists but if the industry screamed they would have a much better chance of getting some cut through with gov.

    End of RecFish SA?

    Lets keep this on track guys, we're trying to improve representation of rec fishers not war between rec fishing organisations. All this warring is just working against us.
