  1. Interesting comments peatop. The problem in SA is that the tossers that run the fisheries here just do not listen to anyone. They have all these public consultations etc etc which mean absolutely nothing & all a waste of time whilst in the meantime the fish keep getting rapped. They cannot put together a sensible plan together at all. Its all just smoke & mirrors whilst they bumble around BS ideas. Unfortunately they have no idea in SA as is evident from the nightmare they are in now. Its just so frustrating that it is not funny anymore. There is just no confidence here at all in anything they propose.
  2. SA Bait supplies will sell to you if you ask nicely!!!. I have bought bulk bait from them before.
  3. Upload the podcast when available...
  4. The Minister has been living under a rock for the last 10 years. PIRSA had & has absolutely no idea. Pissing around with stupid rule changes has achieved nothing. Now they are worried about Snapper stocks...Bloody pathetic. This has been so obvious for many years & nothing done. Leave the Recs alone & ban the pros/commercials.....simple as that.
  5. Not as big of an issue as the commercial rapists.................
  6. Fair enough. I do not have the time nor inclination to breed myself. I did all this in my younger years. As a back up, I have used & still use on occasions the Berkley Gulp "Maggots Asticots" in natural white. They are a very good substitute & last for many casts/catches!!!. You can dip them in any substance you like. I just dip in pilchard juice. Just another option.............
  7. Not sure, but it seems something like coconut husk strands/shavings or something similar. Maybe even some type of coir you can get from local garden store or Bunnings. Just need to keep it damp, NOT wet. Mine usually last the 3 months they say & to tell you the truth, I don't even bother checking the moisture as in the crisper compartment in the fridge, there is enough moisture anyway. When I use, I place the container in the esky after removing 2-3 gents & not leave out on the baitboard to dry out. This way the gents remain cool and moist. Also, before I buy them, I open the container to see the condition of the gents. If no good then I open another container to get ones in good condition.
  8. Long Life Gents Each packet contains approximately 350 maggots per pack. Please note that this figure is dependant on maggot size and is only an approximate figure. The average shelf life of long life maggots is up to three months. We have had reports of these lasting for much monger periods when looked after correctly. To ensure you get the best possible life, please keep maggots refrigerated between 3 and 5 degrees. The medium the maggots are packed with must be kept moist, but not too wet. If this is allowed to dry the maggots will begin to pupa. So at $6 or so a tub, not worth breeding your own IMO.
  9. Ah, well. Thought there might be others hidden within posts. Good luck to those who find them. I don't have the time as busy with 5 x grandkids most of the weekend. Was hoping to get lucky to give to the eldest grandson on his 5th Birthday. Always next time.
  10. Seen it before on FB several months back. It s all about the technique..........
  11. In reality the size limit in the Coorong should probably be increased to be consistent & be in line with the current 82cm. Having said that, the Mulloway numbers in my view have generally been very good there even with the local pros netting daily. Not sure if that area is an issue but perhaps it maybe. There are still plenty of Mulloway in the Port River & the big boys are always consistent during winter, however the current size limit applies as it always has in the Port & there is no netting.....Different scenario I guess, but I don't agree that Mulloway numbers in the Port have declined at all....In fact last year was one of the best I have had for awhile. Anyway, the Coorong is a different kettle of "fish" & as far as I know to date, not an issue.
