  1. I use Sunline FC Rock fluorocarbon as a leader from 6lb to 30lb & don't have any problems with knots, one thing with tying knots in fluoro is to make sure that your knots are well lubricated before tightening so that the line slides easily in the knot, any friction in the knot will weaken the line & make an ugly knot. I have a customer that often gets me to tie an FG knot to join his 6lb braid to a 6lb fluoro leader for his YF Whiting lure fishing, I can understand why the fish find it hard to see , I need bloody good light to see it

    We're currently waiting for the 2021 Caldia LT's to show up, they've been on order for a while, think it's this month they should get here. I've been toying with the idea of the 1000 Caldia as an upgrade to my Yellowfin luring outfit but then that would mean I'd have to get a new rod as well new rod & reel, angry wife , peace & quiet after initial explosion, could be a done deal Yorky
  6. See the youtube link below from Yamashita regarding Squid jig rattle. The video is in Japanese but has subtitles. Most of my jigs are Yamashita's as I like the quality & the technology that goes into the build. I mainly use the rattle jigs when I first get to a spot for a short period then switch over to a non rattle jig unless the water is dirty then I will use the rattle jig pretty much for the session, I'm also a fan of their warm jacket technology. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvOVuu_-nZ4 Yorky
  7. Give the man a cigar . We hear a lot of comments from people in the shop regarding the best scents be it gels or sprays & which one is best. We don't have one in the shop that someone doesn't buy because according to someone they all work. People have their favourites and a lot of these people are buying it to fish the same areas for the same species but one will tell you a certain scent doesn't work and the next person will tell you that that scent is the only one that works. From what I hear from a lot of different people is that they all work just not for everyone. The o
  8. @Meppstas, Love your photo's and your reports, you are definitely fishing in some beautiful county Cheers Yorky
  9. Hoarders can keep their damn Toilet paper, I’ve got the ASSblaster 3000
  10. I have found that when tying Fluoro the knot needs to be well & truley lubricated (spit) before pulling it up tight to increase the knot strength. If you tie a knot without/with little lube & pull it tight watch what happens to the fluoro at the base of the knot just as it gets tight & you can watch the damage happen. Since I've started really slobbering on my fluoro knots if had next to no failures Yorky
  11. Always enjoy watching your video's, Thanks for sharing Yorky
  12. it's a pity I can't put more than one like on that comment, BIG thumbs up from me
  13. Not necessarily the cowards way, maybe the smart way. I don't do a lot of jetty fishing because I don't have the patience, and I don't meant patience for fishing, I mean patience for some of the morons that you see up there. If you are going to approach these thieving bastards in an effort to educate just be careful, I have heard stories from quite a few that have spoken to people doing the wrong thing and they have copped abuse, been threatened (one was told they will go looking for his family), knife pulled, full blown arguments. If you approach them and are told to F*** off you
  14. It was clear, I was pretty much just backing what you said. I always correct people when they come in the shop blaming one particular race
  15. @vogon I do not know the answer, but it frustrates the hell out of me. I do know that there are those that do not know the rules & are surprised when told that what they are doing is illegal. There are those that do not know the rules but don't care to know them. and There are those that know the rules but don't care to follow them. In the shop we are constantly talking to people about fish bag & size limits as well as safety equipment rules laws and it is very disheartening when you get replies like "they've got to catch you" or "I don't do it very often" or "that'
