  1. Great stuff Allroy. I live & love the river. Very underrated.
  2. Thanks mrfish, the islands it is then.
  3. Thanks Rotare, it's not quite the perfection that I was imagining, but probably a bit more realistic.
  4. Thanks Surf, any luck off the charters? What did you catch?
  5. Hello all, I'm going away to Fiji, Denarau Island for 9 days in a few weeks & intend on doing a decent fishing charter (any 1st hand recommendations?) but more so, want some advice regarding a bit of kayaking. They are apparently available for free from the resort & I think there's some reefs not far offshore. I'm taking a 7ft 5-8kg with a mid sized reel. Have any of you been there & done some of this? What would I expect to catch? Trevally? Mackerel? What lures should I take along? I was thinking a combination of 4 or 5 90-100mm surface & skirted lures.
  6. On my lowrance hook 5 (probably the same transducer) i made the bottom one slightly larger than yours so that the silicone came up the sides as i pushed it down. The top looks the same as yours. Mine works perfectly but I don't know if it would make any difference with the bottom layer being a bit tighter. Also I've done two installs (shifted from one kayak to another) & I did notice a few air bubbles when I pulled out the first one & it still worked perfectly. Maybe it depends exactly where the air bubbles are on the TD. I think it's more important to make sure you put some weight on
  7. What fish is Chow? I've heard it mentioned a few times but never really knew exactly which fish it is. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi guys & gals,on my last fishing trip my Mitchell Pro Orca 80 s jammed up on me & I only just now opened it up to find a few pieces (photo attached) floating around inside the rotor section. These are plastic & looked like they had just come out of a kids toy from one of those 20 cent machines. I know it's not the most expensive reel in the world but I was surprised that they would use that kind of stuff in an otherwise pretty solid reel.These pieces are part of the anti-reverse mechanism. I believe the piece on the left of the photo is the anti reverse dog part number 867220 &
  9. I heard somewhere to put your hand in as hot as you can handle, hot water (or coffee if you have a thermos of it).
  10. I'm heading up to fowlers very soon, doing the usual beaches (possibly as far as dog fence), jetty & rocks but was just wondering if anyone had any little tips, special spots or anything that might help me catch a few fish. PM me if you like & i will do a post when i get back with photos & possibly video...Cheers in advance...Andrew
  11. That doesn't seem too hard... i might try cooking 1 up for the mother-in-law
  12. riverland, but i do come to adelaide so north or west adelaide, would also be willing to buy over the phone.
  13. i was after some good quality surf poppers (not surface poppers), maybe about 30 or 40 of them, mainly green in colour with a few of other colours. i need them in the larger size (at least like the one in the photo) with larger good quality hooks, i have seen some on ebay but would rather support a reputable local tackle store that i can trust. Any pointers would be much appreciated....Fishermaniac
