    Northbank 750HT Info

    The Nautic Star looks a beast for the price but would be a one town boat. I have always liked the Kevlacat 2400 twin 140 Suzuki's for a towable offshore large boat

    Yeti ice bricks

    Yeti gear is expensive but well designed & built I took 3 months to get a 4L drink bottle wasn't paying retail... SSSOOOO happy I eventually got it. 4l thermos on a 40deg day working in the sun best drink bottle I've seen For fishing I use a salt saline solution in 6 X 1.25L bottles & few bags ice to make a super cold ice slurry for fish Usually I get frostbite while filleting lol

    A good mono to mono knot please.

    Why bother with the leader? If I was running light mono I would go straight to lure Just another weakness in the line only 2lb extra anyway knots in light line can be trouble

    Rapala R type reel

    Hi Fishoes I just got my new r type 6500 $89 delivered with 2 yrs of fishing porn I was after a beach reel for lures salmon etc I don't think this is the one.. A heavy beast more suited to deep reefs etc out in the boat I think Anyone used one before or any opinions? What reels do you recommend for long casts & high speed lures Probably 15lb braid spare spool would be great...

  11. Dark diver or skirt run short in prop wash has most of my tuna while trolling I will use a big purple mackerel skirt next time as lots of 40 cm schools of macs where i tried on snap opening day Duel adagio 125g with single hook casts a mile on 20lb for surface fish. Yozuri mag minnow white red head 55mm was unstoppable when feading on whitebait one time 5 fish to 0 Good luck

    Top Shot mono

    I only use a few meters mono leader not a top shot on my egg beaters Presume you setting up for medium - BIG tuna with lures What length & size are you trying to use? I try to go lighter leader as tuna teeth rarely cut leader but they can be shy & heavy leaders will also restrict action Go get em knackers

      Tried for the squid only got 2 got lots of small ones on the long weekend

      I find the whiting around more deeper 40-50ft but I'm no expert my winch was wired to deep cycle battery which is now dead so only drifting this trip

      I'm keen to meet a fellow fisho
