  1. @Meppstas, Love your photo's and your reports, you are definitely fishing in some beautiful county Cheers Yorky
  2. Hoarders can keep their damn Toilet paper, I’ve got the ASSblaster 3000
  3. 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
  4. Always enjoy watching your video's, Thanks for sharing Yorky
  5. it's a pity I can't put more than one like on that comment, BIG thumbs up from me
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. @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'
  9. 100% agree with what Projoe said, also when tying knots in Fluro make sure you get the knot good & wet/lubed before pulling it up tight & make sure the knot is pulled up properly/tight as I have found if it's not both of the above you will get burn off with your knot Yorky
  10. The link below is how I learnt to tie the FG & is how I am still tying it now, be it in the shed, standing in the water or in a rocking boat. only need to tighten it down after every set of wraps http://youtube.com/watch?v=yk7uWUa4z6Y Cheers Yorky
  11. FG knot, I’m pretty much 100% braid & use a leader on everything from 6lb to 150lb. I find the FG to be the smallest knot & you don’t hear it clicking through your guides which means it’s not catching on them & risking damage to them or impacting on your casts especially on very light gear. It simply gives you a smooth flowing cast Cheers Yorky
  12. @nicksfishin666 Squidgy flick baits are only available in the Bio-tough range unless someone is holding stock of the old model, they have been discontinued in the other ranges so a lot of favourites are now gone Cheers Yorky
  13. These are the fastach clips I use, they are available with or without swivel I use the ones without a swivel to lessen the added weight even when I have removed the split ring. Notice they are rounded where the lure attaches which allows the lure to move freely. They are available in 5 sizes from 15 - 100lb, I use all sizes depending what lure I'm using for what species, I have used the 100lb when trolling for Tuna with no loss of action to the lure
  14. @Territory Lad I haven’t noticed any decline in strikes or hookups for the species I fish for but I don’t fish for Bream so can’t answer regarding them Yorky
  15. I remove the split ring and either tie straight to the lure or more often than not I will use a small Mustad fastach clip that way I can change lures fast without having to re-tie. I've found that removing the split ring & adding a clip hasn't affected lure action even in small light lures i.e. Yellowfin 3-5g lures, I like the Mustad fastach clips because they are rounded & allow the lure to move freely. I mainly use the Mustad fastach clips in 25lb this may seem way overkill but the smaller ones in 15lb are to small for my eyes & fingers so I only use that size when I have to.
  16. Fishing , the outcome of the game will be publicised, watching it won't change the outcome. Fishing is like sex, every time you miss out on it you never catch it up Cheers Yorky
  17. I actually upgraded from the "SS" to the "S" last year but this wasn't due to hook failure it was because I was dropping a few fish, I have found the "S" size better Cheers Yorky
  18. @Territory Lad I've been using them for a couple of years now and am pretty happy with them with no failures except having a hook bitten off by a toadie that grabbed my sinking stickbait Cheers Yorky
  19. The last snapper I cut into cutlets I froze the snapper then put it's head in the vice with a tub under it then cut into cutlets using a reciprocating saw. I didn't have a stainless blade but if I was planning to do it often I would purchase one, I just cleaned all the paint off of a new blade & used that. One tip is to cut a section out of an ice cream lid, put a slit in it & put it behind the foot plate then put the blade through it, this saves as much "saw dust/meat" going into the saw. I cleaned the saw off with a paint brush & flour to get any residue "saw dust/meat"
  20. @Territory Lad see attached link Daiwa TD minnow Yorky
  21. @Territory Lad Compleat Angler Moonta still have some in 95mm but 2 colours only. Golden Shiner & Ghost Herring 88253400 Cheers Yorky
  22. @southie THE BANGA Yeah I'm working all weekend, by all accounts there was a steady stream of vehicles headed our way Thursday night. saw heaps in the shop today but figure we will see more tomorrow. there are still a lot of people who can't get their head around that we are open Good Friday. Hopefully you'll get out for a fish after the weekend, I know I'm hoping to Cheers Yorky
  23. I have some gear I can bring with us Cheers Yorky
  24. My fishing plans for Xmas & New Year will be spent in the shop helping everyone else to go fishing and hopefully helping the holiday fishers catch a few fish, always rewarding when they come in the next day to thank you for helping them catch their first fish Cheers Yorky
  25. Inox is what I use to maintain my fishing gear, the spray, the grease & the oil & have done for years & am very happy with the results I have had Inox MX3 spray, I don't spray this directly onto my reels. I spray this on a chux & wipe my reels over (do not like getting anything on my line), I wash my gear after every outing & only re-do it when I notice the water not beading after washing the reels down (aprox 4-5 outings) I find it doesn't dry out or put a sticky film on my gear. Info on the spray Description: Inox mx3 is a multi-purpose anti-moisture and
