  1. Sounds like a ray I've caught a few eagle rays in the coorong, although on pilchards not livebait
  2. I use bait elastic with pilchard and garfish baits when casting from shore. Haven't tried it with yabbies, but alot of people overseas use it for soft baits like clams, prawn and squid so it should work fine. Let us know when you try
  3. From a boat casting is not as important. I value lightness so you can hold it all day, a soft tip so it will show bites but enough backbone to handle any bigger fish. I use a few high end rods for specific uses but mostly prefer mid range gear these days. I really like the gomoku rods for boat fishing for whiting as they tick all of these boxes. For landbased bait fishing for whiting it is a balance between length for casting distance and lightness. I use a pair of Daiwa seajiggers for most of my jetty work. For extreme distance I have pair of SFC Surf Tiger rods and a pair of Centur
  4. Bait or lure? Boat or landbased? Threadline or baitcaster? What are you using at the moment?
  5. Breadcrumbs, chicken pellets and tuna oil. I buy my chicken pellets by the sackful. The family prefer crumbed and fried fish so after a while the burley recipe becomes chicken pellets, oil left over from frying fish and breadcrumbs left over from crumbing fish
  6. Looks good. I've been painting a few myself to try. The red tube on the treble is a good idea to mimic fin flash.
  7. Not cheap but this looks pretty cool Shimano Game Vest VF-068T – Isofishinglifestyle
  8. Quick dozen Squid - Metropolitan - Strike & Hook What fish is this ..? - Saltwater Fishing - Strike & Hook
  9. Looks life a Tubemouth
  10. For the rod and reel, 65lb braid is overkill. If you are going for salmon, 20lb will be fine and 15lb braid will cast even better.
  11. I've found its more of an issue with the 2 long feeding tentacles. Couple of rinses in water gets rid of most of the hard bits and a good fry till crunchy sorts out the rest.
  12. Beach worms work really well in shallow water. Not cheap unless you catch your own
  13. Jam the hose in and go full pressure
  14. I've used an ozito garden shredder for my burley. 10kg batch every month or two for the last 5+ years. It gets a good hose out after use and is kept in the back shed away from the house. Still works fine
