  1. Landbased, look for the ink spots on the jetty. Technique is almost as important as location. You want to keep your jig within 1m to 2m of the bottom while minimizing snags. Much easier from a kayak or boat
  2. Cairns - Interstate Fishing Reports - Strike & Hook (strikehook.com)
  3. I've got a 5 piece Lox travel rod. I've taken it to Queensland a few times and once to WA. It fishes PE 2 with enough length for land based casting. Light enough to use for bream and garfish but enough power for some micro jigging.
  4. If they are not biting, I also like to dip the baits in tuna oil or halco catch scent
  5. I enjoy fishing for gar. It is often a challenge of balancing a finesse presentation with just the right amount of burley and right size bait and hook and size of float. Landbased its even more tricky as you need to factor in casting weight to get your rig out a good distance while still showing bites and not tangling. Often I go down to 4lb line and a tiny short shank hook to get the bite. I also like using alternative baits and have had some great success on stuff no one else uses. Silver fish is very popular as a gar bait in Vic and occasionally sold here in tackle stores. Mo
  6. Follow up on Gliss. I've still got it on 1 reel. Abrasion resistance got really bad over time to the point of constant breakages. It looks like most people have found the same and it is going really cheap. WFT Gliss Hybrid Line 150m Yellow Bulk - DINGA Online — DINGA Fishing At $3 a spool I am still giving it a miss.
  7. Good work Larry I have also used squid, scottish kippers and chicken pellets for the yabbies with good success. Carp is also very popular as yabby bait here as you can often catch them onsite.
  8. As long as you only use 3 hooks
  9. Seems to be a smaller version of a kontiki. Looks to be ore portable and light enough to deploy on a rod and reel. I saw the ad on late night TV here. Might be abit of fun for salmon and mulloway. There's a few for sale on gumtree
  10. I've bought a few to play with. 3 hooks to keep it legal. Had a go for redfin without any luck so far. They generate a fair bit of drag and need to be fished on heavier gear. 10lb or 15lb. I'll give them another go at some stage.
  11. Welcome Nice clear video and simple to understand language. Good work
  12. I've got a few small ones on gulp sandworms while chasing bream in westlakes.
  13. I had a small bottle of tuna oil in a fishing backpack once. It spilled. I couldn't get the oil out even after a few washes in the washing machine. Had to throw it out in the end.
  14. You'll be happy with the baitrunner
  15. If you are using a glass rod and 20lb braid then for $200, get a Daiwa BG 4000 Alan Hawk's review 2016 Daiwa BG - AlanHawk.com Best Spinning Reels - AlanHawk.com He rates it the best general saltwater reel under $150 (US)
