  1. Went down to the mouth last weekend, the dredge was working right in front of the beach there.. Sorta wrecked our fishing plans. It may have moved in the last week tho.
  2. Wouldn't want to cop one of them to the head! Did your cars get damaged?
  3. They look sweet! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  4. Just come across this on FB.. Nothing new to me but might have some tips in there for others.
  5. I used to do pretty well at Somerton, been a few years since i've fished it but can't see why it would be any different now. If you can get away with fishing near people sometimes that works well as the YFW hang about feeding on what ever there feet dig up while walking about in the water.
  6. They are looking great dude.... I might have to start chasing the YFW.
  7. I had a look at these today.. great blanks and will work well on the YFW no doubt how they are painted!
  8. Today was a total success.. the A-team ran like clock work as usual.. cheers to the good day with plenty of laughs, even if they where at the expense of Doobie. [emoji23] If anyone would like to help out on the strike hook bbq at an event let us know, it's more fun then work. [emoji106] KS and Doobie working hard... Or hardly working?

  9. Nice video.. they are some good fun! I might have to get back down there for a session myself, been years.
  10. I've been using clips for years.... Die hards reckon they affect hook up rates, but i'm not sold on it. I use 00 Decoy clips for my smaller fishing Bream/Trout etc and the Fastach clips for when using bigger lures for chasing Callop/Cod/Mullies.

    black snapper

    First i've ever heard of "black snapper" Sure it wasn't a monster bream? Love to hear some more about it if anyone knows?
  12. They look great. Must take a while to do each one? Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  13. I don't know much about it. There is a couple of clubs you can try here in South Australia. SAFFA - http://www.saflyfishers.asn.au/SAFFA_Welcome.html SAFWAA - http://www.safwaa.org/
  14. I won't be watching the grand final. [emoji6] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  15. I understand that different occasions call for different styles of plastics. I was more going off what i feel comfortable using... Never really liked flick baits or what ever they call them, just feels like i'm throwing out a bit of plastic and towing it back in, Sure you can work them to get more/the action you want but just never done it for me. Same went for Paddles but i did enjoy using the Slim Swimz today.... Still not a Grubz tho.
  16. Tried some Zman 2.5" Slim Swimz today... Avid 2.5" Grubz user as mentioned but thought i'd give them a go. Never been a fan of paddle tails but loving the action on these, didn't catch anything on either today it was a hard slog But they will be going in the 2 plastic rotation from now on!
  17. I'm not brand biased when it comes to rod and reels, what ever feels good in the hand really. Price pays a big part of it, I got a Savage Gear rod at a real good price Something i would have never brought but after using it, it seems alright.
  18. Not to sure as I have a lot of confidence in the zman grubs. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  19. I don't buy much these days.. But Zman are my go to plastics because they last for ages. Mainly the 2.5" grubz.
  20. I'll have to remember that spot if i ever venture there again.
  21. I've heard around the new moon... Yet to catch one so can't really comment.
