    Roof racks

    I use soft racks for my kayak which is 33 kg. They should be absolutely fine for a swag.

    New whiting fisher from North Haven

    I fish those spots a bit, still catch the same species though never a legal sized whiting. but salmon trout fishing is still good and you get the odd flathead, bream trevally tommies gar puffers and cow fish Haven't been down there since the dredging started though

    New whiting fisher from North Haven

    troll up and down the northern outer harbour breakwall for salmon trout, pretty easy to get a few during winter. you can berley them to keep them in an area once you locate them. plenty salmon trout off northhaven rockwalls too port river for salmon trout too

    My rod tips for night live bait session

    Ha that's funny, but nothing to lose you head over Does that happen in the ocean or in an estuary? Squid pretty much always go for the neck of a fish and chomp through with their beaks. might be the culprit if they are in the area you are "losing your noggins." would explain why it doesn't take drag maybe??

    Agree with rotare, We stayed down of the coral coast 10 years ago and while the water was pretty clear we still refer to the resort as ol' swampy'. we did a charter from the resort that went just to the surrounding water, in half an hour the crew had snapped the anchor rope, one crew fell overboard and no one got any fish LOL Going out to the outer islands is amazing though. we snorkelled the island where they filmed castaway. it was incredible If you've seen the ifish series when they went to Fiji last year the fishing can be pretty amazing out there

    Catching Mullet info wanted

    I use a small (size 10 I think) circle hook, these are deadly in the surf as the bait is moving slightly with the swell and the hook up rate is near 100%. I tend to use gents or cockles in the close gutters at waitpinga etc. as mentioned patternosta and running sinker rig works well or a float. Size 10 long shanks hooks are good when using worms or prawn
  7. Hi all, Just after any recommendations for doing a charter from Marion Bay YP later this year. If you could share your experience and the charter that would be great thinking about going April/May

    Mulloway migration info

    Freshwater flows out of the Murray are migration cues for mulloway, they used to be caught up in Milang until the barrages were put in and changed the environment in the lakes

    Carp for bait and burley?

    Carp is great, stays on the hook really well too. Killer on bream and salmon

    Tumby bay

    Just a quick report as short on time.. Got onto a few fish while away though not in the numbers we were hoping. we managed some squid, KGW, Yelllowfin whiting, flathead, tommies, snook, trevally and salmon trout. The Jetty was hit and miss for squid but we usually ended up with between 2-6 per session. Baby tommies were in plague proportions over some of the whiting grounds when we could get out in the boat (which wasn't often thanks to persistent 20 knot winds). The squid were mostly small with the occasional 25cm hood showing up. Threw out a slug on the way through the marina and hooked and lost a very nice snook of around 70+ cm which was entertaining. Also lost what could have been a cracking Yellowfin whiting while using a popper over the flats of ski beach as it straightened two hooks on a brand new lure. Wasn't impressed but provided some fun on a slow day . Replaced the trebles and managed some salmon trout on the popper on a trip down to coffin bay. Did some snorkelling at the jetty and saw a good sized morwong and some puffer varieties and some magpie perch but not much around in the way of fish. Overall a good trip but nothing epic. Beautiful part of the world though.
