    Reel Servicing

    I tend to buy mid priced reels you can get some quality gear for $100-$150 Then I service myself bail rollers seem to be most of my problems Might get another fin nor lethal 100 for spares & extra spool Awesome heavy duty reel $128 The free Rapala reel with 30lb braid from fish mag has exceeded my expectations Very smooth drag great feel & has accounted for lots of big fish 7ft bronzy, big gummies snaps etc

    Adelaide fishing

    All yours Rybak there are plenty of fish waiting for you... Sit down for 20 mins Daninozz & quietly throw some berley near the pontoons & observe the fish amazing how many fish are in there Maybe you are spooking them by flogging the water rather than hunting the fish

    Adelaide fishing

    I use bait n berley if I want fillets & lures when I've found the fish The further away from Pt Adelaide the better Plenty of fish around look for the structure Think like a fish
  6. corn "flakes", curry powder, bread, aniseed, bran, chook pellets & tuna oil. & maybe the neighbors cat? Looking at the vid Doobie may be about to add an extra dose of his magic potion

    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

    buy another lure see if that works You will need spares anyway

    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...
