  1. 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/
  2. I won't be watching the grand final. [emoji6] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. Not to sure as I have a lot of confidence in the zman grubs. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  7. I don't buy much these days.. But Zman are my go to plastics because they last for ages. Mainly the 2.5" grubz.
  8. I'll have to remember that spot if i ever venture there again.
  9. I've heard around the new moon... Yet to catch one so can't really comment.
  10. Looks a bit heavy for what i want.. Might just get a weedless hook and split shot or something.
  11. What jigheads are you using for the weedless on the grubs? Was only just talking about this before with a bloke at work for chasing the Bream in the mangroves.
  12. I'm guessing the point of that video is those reels are waterproof?
  13. Yeah.. and i saw a video over the weekend of part of a pontoon broken off ... Oh and the dredge against the rock..
  14. That is out of control... I'd expect that at west beach boat ramp.
  15. I can use my rod holders.. well sort of but the wheels do rest against the rods and I'm not a fan of it. I've got room for a tub but not used it yet. I can fit a tackle bag behind the back of the seat then anything else I usually slide under the seat. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  16. Looks pretty good and a damn sight cheaper to build that then what i paid for mine! How do you find the size of the wheels on the deck while out on the water? I usually leave mine in the car unless i have a walk a fair distance to launch.
  17. Congrats vogon! About time someone guessed it! [emoji482] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  18. It might happen one day.... In 20 years by the time we catch up.
  19. Maybe you need to dig your kayak out again.
  20. There isn't a lot of structure in the onk that Bream like so you have a work to find them i reckon, I caught my first fish today out of there after about 10 trips and it wasn't even a bream just a baby flatty.
  21. Soft racks will do the job fine for a swag. I know a couple of people who use them with kayaks and over time the weight has caved the roof in a little. You will be right if only using it for a swag. Keep an eye on gummy/fb marketplace they are always coming up cheap, saw some the other day for $20
  22. Never used them myself. Have you tried the fish market place on Grand Junction Rd?
