    Snapper fishing lessons - worth it?

    This is the old channel adjacent French Tom Creek & the other is the main channel pole by the looks.

    Bandsaw - Snapper Cutlets

    Just another way of preparing snapper for the BBQ, pan, oven and even an AirFyer. The meat along the bones have more flavour & definitely alot more moist then a fillet. The meat just falls of the bone anyway so no issues with that or remnants. I use to do the cutlets alot previously. Eating qualities of a Snapper is overrated in my opinion. Having said that, I now do most of my snapper in a double alfoil wrap on the BBQ to keep the flesh moist which also allows you add whatever herbs/spices/condiments you like (scales on). Very easy to over cook Snapper & then the meat becomes very dry.

    A good mono to mono knot please.

    Much easier using a lure clip/swivel etc to your main line. I do not see any advantage tying line to line at all. Have always used clips/swivels etc from Garfish to Kingfish. Simple & effective in my opinion especially for changing rigs or replacing due to a snag or snap off. For example I use the twist on swivels for changing squid jags and for a multitude of other set ups. I like to keep it as simple as possible. Just choose the clips/swivels according to the fish you are targeting. Still catch fish.............

    You can get crab nets for $10 or less each if you search around. I suggest to save up. Yabbie nets are designed for yabbies unless you modify/hack them up. Not worth the effort in my opinion.

    barometric pressure

    Was going to suggest the same one. Have used it for years. Another interesting one is Windyty, wind map & forecast.

    Secret spots

    From Middle Beach is only 6-7 k's straight out. Yeah, good weather helps as you punch against the wind if heading back towards Black Pole late arvo. Better taking your new tinnie out in the Port River at the moment. Lots of Salmon Trout about, Mullet & Bream in the creeks and throughout the river, BIG Mulloway are there at night & even some decent Gar at night along the mangroves.

    Secret spots

    Where are you launching from? From the Black Pole the area is roughly 15k's. Heaps of spots to fish in that area. There are many areas to fish before you even get to the Goanna grounds. Download Navionics web app maps from the internet. Its free.

    Goolwa camping

    Was just wondering if it is a new boat that you would launch somewhere protected like Port River first to get used to the boat etc. Otherwise no problem. Good luck

    Goolwa camping

    Why would you launch your new boat at beacon 19? unless you have had boats before.

    Port Vincent

    Do a search on this site as the topic has been brought up before. Also there are stacks of marks around that way on the net.

    Where to live

    You might want to have a look at Pt Broughton/Fishermans Bay or the other end at Corny Point. Both have excellent fishing & easy going places. I am fortunate in that I have relatives that have premises at both those locations which I can visit virtually anytime .

    Cheap Snook Lures

    Halco sliced metal snook lure or any sliced metal lure. They should be pretty cheap.

    Black squid jigs working well..

    Also...Clip an unweighted squid jig to the swivel when whiting fishing. Good fun when you get one of each.
