  2. have had a daiwa excellor for so many years now that i cant remember when i bought it... has certainly earned its money many times over. I also have some small shimano reels.. sol 3000 being my favourite of them. Im happy with both.. but im probably not as dedicated any longer to my fishing as most on here

  6. looks the goods!! i use anything from the Alvey shoulder bag, a bum bag, or a small back pack dependant on where or what im targeting!
  7. I also have the Hark 2 door smoker.. but i usually do briskets, pulled pork, Lamb roasts/pulled and ribs in it... if you can get wood Chunks, it will last longer than chips or saw dust. DONT soak your wood chips. this just creates steam and not smoke.. remember.. you are smoking the fish.. not steaming them.. I havent done fish in my hark, but did a lot in a little metho burner, just salting the fish before hand, didnt brine them. but brining does give a better product. a few interesting reads in this link too https://grillinfools.com/blog/2009/04/01/smoke-wood-what-kind-is-best-well-it-depends/
  8. sounds like they are making carp jerky

    my home town, The local jetty used to be good fishing.. plenty of beaches around too. Second creek is not far out. we used to fish and snorkel this area a lot. Ski beach has some nice land based flicking to be done too. The marina is holding some decent fish from what i hear. Always got Coffin bay, Port Niell, Port Lincoln close by too

    Cheap Snook Lures

    Cheap Snook Lures

    Fishing Techniques: Most snook are taken on lightly-weighted or un-weighted baits of whitebait, anchovy or pilchards on ganged hooks or single, long-shanked hooks. They also fall to fish flesh strips, small live baits and pieces of squid. These baits should be a lightly weighted and kept moving. A gentle jigging motion will often attract snook. Snook are also keen lure-takers and fall to slow-trolled spoons, jigs, feathers and minnows, particularly on weighted lines or behind paravanes. Eating Qualities: The snook is a very good to excellent table fish, much prized in southern waters. The fish's flesh is white, moist and sweet, although a little soft. Care should be taken not to bruise the meat, and all snook should be cleaned promptly after capture.

    Cheap Snook Lures

    soft plastics.. and pretty much any hard body.. Green/silver/blue/red+white , when on they bite they are not really fussy.. and metal salmon lures are fine too.
