  1. I think i'll stick to the FG for now, seems i only just mastered that one.
  2. Geeze i was well off. Still looks awesome. Surprised the Cruiser made it that far
  3. Thinking Almonta or Golden Island?
  4. Shame the LandCruiser had to ruin the pics. [emoji6][emoji23] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  5. It's amazing how many slightly different ways people have come up with to accomplish the same knot! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  6. When I was up the river on the weekend I got one of the guys tie a FG on one of my rods while I watched. Being able to see it first hand makes a difference. Just tried it myself and it actually bloody worked first go. Probably not perfect but I'll see how it goes! 15lb braid I think to 20lb mono. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  7. That looks like a fairly easy way to do it... With some of the fish that tank cranks in it must hold up alright.
  8. Cheers for the video dude might give that way a go. Little bit different to what i've been watching. The knot in the braid for holding it in your mouth is a good trick.
  9. Just had a go but seems my teeth ain't good enough to hold the braid for long periods, so will have to scrap that idea. Not going to waste money on a tool, I'll just stick with what i know and inspect the knot from time to time and retie if needed.
  10. Might have a go at the FG Knot after. It is mainly to use on my bait caster set up for Callop/cod if i ever get one. I found my current knot takes a bit of a beating due to the weight/size of the lures/spinners i throw. I actually had one undo last weekend after a million casts and of course i had a spinner bait on so it sunk, if it was a lure i would have floated and i could have got it back. It's not so bad on my Bream set up as they gear i throw is much lighter.
  11. I do 99% of my fishing from the kayak.. how would i go with that tool?
  12. Hey all, So what leader knots are you using? I thought mine was an Improved Albright but after some reading into it, it is the Alberto Knot. While i've not really had any issues with knot strength, having the leader tag end pointing forwards thru the guides really chits me. So what are you using? Quick pic of one I just tied. 8lb fluro to 15lb braid.
  13. I've heard of people doing that trick with an old pc type fan and works a treat! You might need a bigger model if you keep catching fish that big.
  14. Any plans to do some bigger lures for Callop?
  15. I agree that top one looks nuts! I'd buy one and just to look at and not use. [emoji23] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  16. I've hit the Port a couple of times in the last 2 weeks and small ST's schools are everywhere and hitting the plastics hard... I've only had one i needed to operate on to get my plastic back tho. Maybe you are just been unlucky.
  17. Wouldn't the burly just fall out?
  18. Lure > Decoy 00 clip is what i use then blood knot to tie the clip to my fluro. Traditional swivels are WAY to bulky for smaller lures. People say clips are even rubbish and use a loop knot, Yes loop knot will probably give you a little bit more movement but i'm happy to sacrifice that for being lazy.
  19. Cracker report. Sure looks like a fun place to fish.

    tuna oil

    Seen a few guys on ABS rating it.. But could just be to plug the product.
  21. 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.
  22. Wouldn't want to cop one of them to the head! Did your cars get damaged?
  23. They look sweet! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
