  1. I'm guessing the point of that video is those reels are waterproof?
  2. Yeah.. and i saw a video over the weekend of part of a pontoon broken off ... Oh and the dredge against the rock..
  3. That is out of control... I'd expect that at west beach boat ramp.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Congrats vogon! About time someone guessed it! [emoji482] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  7. It might happen one day.... In 20 years by the time we catch up.
  8. Maybe you need to dig your kayak out again.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. Never used them myself. Have you tried the fish market place on Grand Junction Rd?
  12. I don't have any spots but you can try in the Largs Bay area you will find both just drift around till you find a patch. Squid as well.. Saw a pic the other day on FB of a bucket full of whiting like 100m off the Largs Jetty.

    That's is awesome! Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  14. I've only used the 95 trolling from the kayak.. usually used to use it while changing locations at 4.5-5km/h and caught nothing. The other weekend while on the river chasing Callop and trolling lures suited to that was around 1-1.5km/h. I come back here and slowed the troll right down with the DC 1.5-2km/h and got onto a million ST and a couple of bream. So sometimes slow and steady wins the race! But as to how to cast them around... no idea.

    I had the red grips one. Can't remember what weight it is. But it handled my 99cm snapper no worries also used it for whiting and squid. very multi purpose.
  16. Nice fish.. the little tacker seems pretty impressed with himself!
  17. I always used an artline 90 texta thru the spool then stuck it between my feet. Works well lol Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  18. I've got the normal one. Not really much to them. Not sure why you would buy the deluxe one. the normal one has enough storage for tools.
  19. First game is tonight.. Don;t forget to get your tips in!!!!
  20. I've been getting plenty of St's in the river.. But what's going to happen when they start dredging in June?
  21. Try the Zman grubs, Bream seem to fancy them.
  22. It might. I tried to hook it from the 2 and 3 "rib" but didn't look tright to me. Probably wouldn't bother the fish but it bothered me.
  23. I did the hook that plastic over the eyelet thing today.. It doesn't stay on there.. every half hour or so i'd check it and have to redo it.
  24. I actually saw that video on Facebook this morning about hooking it over the eye. Going to give it a try tomorrow. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
