  1. Yeah the creative juices were flowing today - Just shaved a couple of mins of my inflate time and also added a nose plate to stop my toes from getting crushed
  2. Sometimes it can be a wild ride on the bog and you need 2 hands to hang on Surfing strikehook on the job just got a whole lot easier. I cut my groove on a 22 degree angle
  3. Haha - I take the wimps way out - I even take a seat while the 12 volt pump does all the work. I saw a bloke with a cordless usb rechargeable pump the other day - he reckons he can blow up 3 kayaks off one charge - the thing was about as big as a pack of smokes So theres plenty of options out there for the lazy man
  4. Thanks Kelvin - yeah I get less and less surprised when Yellas eat tiny lures after ignoring my big ones
  5. What kind of idiot buys a cheap inflatable kayak to fish out of - This sort of idiot Ive already fished out of an inflatable belly boat without putting holes in it - so I figured with the temps dropping, I may aswell get a yak aswell. Foot room sux bad but the seat is super comfy. I was chucking big lures for the first 2 hours without a hit - So I swapped down to a 1.5 inch paddle tail. That didnt do much but at least I got a little reddy - Then I decided to troll the 1.5 inch for the last 50m back to the car - thats when the yella scoffed it
  6. Dammit - just found a seller that does 50, 8cm, tpe worms for about $6.35 delivered https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005...8daM514WE&mp=1
  7. apologies for the above link in Portuguese - Heres one in English https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000768596517.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.main.21.4fdb43c86XjQZN&algo_pvid=dbbb35a2-cf8a-4787-9242-fb3168f3b6dc&algo_exp_id=dbbb35a2-cf8a-4787-9242-fb3168f3b6dc-10&pdp_ext_f={"sku_id"%3A"12000027223563400"}&pdp_npi=3%40dis!AUD!3.65!3.31!!!!!%4021224e9b16792719760316003d074d!12000027223563400!sea!AU!892774111&curPageLogUid=SRpUoqJp6elk I did buy what appears to be the same product from 2 different sellers - this was the more expensive of the 2 - but the video of th
  8. The arrival of those fake Zmans has coincided with a bit of a dip in fish activity - both the Eps and red fin are being a bit fussy. I was throwing around some unweighted sand worms at both species this evening. That seemed to perk them up a bit. But my standard mojiko worms are too thin to be durable enough to use on species with so many short strikes. So I searched for some more fake ZMANS in a sandworm style. The swimming action on these is bound to be better than stuff Ive used before https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003280088891.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.order_list_
  9. The fake ZMANS arrived - looking forward to giving these a spin
  10. After watching a school of salmon swing by the pier - I saw that even they can be selective when in a frenzy - and the guys doing most of the catching, had a few things in common. SO I tried making my jigheads a bit fancier. I put on a couple of coats of the cheapest spray paint at bunnings - fiddly bits in matt white. But it didnt hold on to the lead very well - and I should have done more coats- I was warned Id need to use a primer paint on the lead first but ignored those warnings. Also learned that spray paint and polystyrene dont play well together
  11. as the guys have mentioned - you can get some good results with nail polish - the glitter over lays on a matt back ground would add some sparkle
  12. You can also buy paint marker pens designed for water use https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/CS_Quick-Coat_Paint_Marker/descpage-CSQKCTM.html
  13. The rigging foam arrived and it’s too skinny for my needs
  14. Yeah although the soy sauce bottle lure worked - it wasnt because it was a good idea Basically had to burn it through schools of ravenous redfin and hope one didnt look at it too long before deciding to strike So those lids were begging to be repurposed
  15. Before Mussel lures became a thing - we used to "paint" our vibes with permanent markers.
  16. The new elasticated leader spool maintenance system made from a sushi soy sauce bottle lid
  17. The only scent Ive tested then not used again was the clear liquid "stimulate". When that "Mark Berg" infomercial came out - talking about pheromones etc - I had to get some My test was on hoards of tiny bream in clear shallows. I was watching them from a bridge. They were happy to peck away at my unscented lure but when I put the stimulate on, they were actually backing off it when I dead sticked the lure. I gave it a couple of hours, targeting different schools then never used it again. By the end of that session I was thinking they should explore this recipe for possible use
  18. I like the "pro cure" range of prey specific scents - I dont think they are made from Aussie ingrediants - they used to just put little sticker with the Aussie names for baits over the top of the USA names. Some successful Victorian tournament anglers use it without any sponsorship deals or financial ties clouding the waters. But after re-reading Dr Ben Diggles' history of Squidgey scent - I'll be giving it another crack. I wasnt fully aware of the amount of testing and trials it went through - I just remember guys jokingly refer to it as Chicken Fat
  19. Ive used it and it hasnt hurt cath rates Heres a brief history of the development of the scent by Dr Ben Diggles - "Of the 21 different products that I trialled, 19 did nothing and around 15 actually repelled the fish (i.e. they were less likely to take objects introduced into the tanks afterwards). " Ben D 16-04-2008, 09:16 PM Great to see some debate on lure attractants. Its clear from some of the replies here that there is a need for a fair bit of education on the matter. Basically I spend a lot of my time working in aquaculture dealing with sick fi
  20. Ive been doing a bit of sliding around on steepish banks recently - Walking back up Grassed banks are where i seem to do my most sliding. Im not sure how big an impact this will have but it offered more grip when I rubbed it across my hand - and in my experience a little bit of grip is better than none
