  1. These ones are the best KG bait!!
  2. Fillets, not whole... Dust with Tandaco fish seasoning (or salt n pepper seasoning, lightly spray with canola oil and cook in a sandwich press. I'm drooling just writing it!!
  3. YD... good use for carp. I've never tried it for burley... what do you attract with it? I use saltwater fish scraps in a muncher, but add chook pellets, bread and tuna oil. How would you go filleting the carp.. I guess the heads would still require "cranium surgery" I use a tomahawk to 'downsize' difficult pieces. and.. btw.... european wasps are not confined to Melbum... I live in the Adelaide Hills and will not see a wasp for 12 months or so.... Start making burley and they are out in swarms.... Funny - the mincer doesnt seem to attract them as much ( I have a
  4. Get hold of a PC program called OziExplorer. It cost around $100 but I reckon its worth it. It can download marks from a csv spreadsheet (text file, display them on a chart and convert them to numerous GPS formats, including GPX Or you can email them to me and I'll do it for you. I only fish SYP so you wont see my boat on your spots...... and I wont share (or sell) them either.
  5. Howdy Rod... hows the coffee these days? ... and the BIG-Cat ? I too put a loop in the end and hook it over the reel handle. Can then do the knot anywhere. As for finishing, I do a couple of half-hitches just to keep the knot tight, then do a couple of locked-half hitches. To do a locked-half -hitch, insted of looping over the line once, loop over twice then thread the loose end under both loops. Work the line from the fixed end to tighten it then pull tight. The second loop ends up over a half-hitch, locking it very tight and there is very little chance it will
  6. If I kept it neat and tidy, my financial director would easily see how many fishing assets I actually have.... No... better to keep it messy... "In confusion there is profit" (Tony Curtis--" Don't give up the ship"(I think)) OH.. and dont store it all in the one spot...
  7. In these days of enlightenment I cannot understand why people still use toilet paper.... Technology has advanced far beyond it... get with the modern times...
  8. Nothings worn under my waders, its all in perfect working order....
  9. Yep, my 'tackle' is certainly getting shorter as I get older.......
  10. I have often pondered whether 'skutes' is NZ accent for skirts...
  11. I have a 'fishing chalet' at Port Moorowie. Heading there and hoping for good weather. I'll try to do 2 shifts in Edithburgh Sea Rescue Radio Room, to make up for recent unavailability due to broken leg....
  12. If you just flip the spool over the rotation will tighten the nut. THing of the # you will save !!
  13. Use it as backing. Looks like you have some useable lengths there. buy smaller reels and use them for squid etc I have a few Shimano IX4000 and they catch everything... even big snapper. If all else fails ... sent it all to me...
  14. FG put a loop in the end of the braid and then put the loop over the eye closest the reel. Wind in the reel until there is a bow in the rod and the braid is under tension. Now make the FG. When crimping, PRACTICE PRACTISE PRACTISE....never use just one, sometimes they do slip Cheap crimps... they used to be half this price... but still cheaper than anywhere else I've found.. https://www.wellsystackle.com.au/_products//TerminalTackle/FishingCRIMPSSLEEVES/WellsysOvalAluminiumMiniSleeves-8083-1715-.aspx
  15. I wonder why its not available in SA...?
