  1. Kids desert

    I'm generally pretty handy on the kitchen. My son's request tonight, after eating all his dinner: Choc chip mint ice-cream with ice magic and sprinkles !
  2. Goolwa Cockles

    Nice one Adrian. Never even knew you could get in to the beach past the main carpark (Beach Rd) !
  3. Cheap Snook Lures

    Are you planning on trolling behind the yak? Try any minnow profile shallow diving HBs around the 70-90mm mark, especially those that may look like a gar- shiny silver/blues/greens etc. Im not specifically familiar with them but some of the Savage Gear ones look ok, around $12 too. Snook are schooling, so once you get a few hits in the same place it may be worth while to go more 'hands on' and switch over to SPs. Zman's are suitably tough for snook attacks, dont try to use Gulps!! Something like 3.75 in Zman Streakz, 85-110mm Flickbaits. As mentioned, metals can be good too and cheap!

    Thanks for the heads up. My thinking too was to head down earlier in the season, at least to take my son for his first shuffle. Don't actually want any for bait but might keep a few.
  5. clip down pulley rig

    Just noticed Rig Master Tackle are selling the hardware for making your own pulley rigs. The 'pulley rig kit' looks like a reasonable starting point. https://www.rigmastertackle.com/product-category/land_based_fishing/
  6. Knife Blade Rusting

    Well a bit late now ...but i would have said a piece of steel wool and engine oil for any light rust. Used this on knives and rifles before re-bluing. Damn AR1, those stratches youve put in the blade make me grimace, Suggest polishing it out with lighter paper and then graded wet & dry? I like knives . Got an old bait knife that ive had since a kid. Its pitted and ugly looking but its 'Toledo Steel' and is awesome!
  7. YFW advise

    Coming into the dodge is not a scenario im familiar with. There will be more water around than im used to fishing so it will be a matter of where you can get to. I'm know to wade out as far as i can, often around 2km when the tides permit! I prefer low tides around 0.8-0.4m and the chase the yfw on the incoming. 1.6 High and 1.4 low, water @17deg ....id be wearing waders and go for a wander, sussing out the structure on the way. Kinda hard to tell with that much water.
  8. Box might be a bit full there mate...cant send you anything?
  9. Awesome. Thanks guys and a big thanks for our sponsor...SPOTTERS ! I enjoyed writing & sharing that one and im glad folks enjoyed the read. Haven't done much fishing over the winter but it has certainly been an unusually warm season weather wise. Feel a little bad posting that report in the last week of competition but that was literary the 2nd session i'd had during the competition period .
  10. Chicken liver Pâté

    Yeah dogs love cooked liver. Whenever got a nice clean deer i'd save the heart, liver and kidneys for the fur kids. Nothing better than a cooked offal on top of that kibble. Even tried it for pate once, just lacked the 'flavour' of chicken livers.
  11. Chicken liver Pâté

    Just cant get past the 'texture' of liver. If someone cooked it i'd certainly have a crack.
  12. Chicken liver Pâté

    Was waiting if anyone said something along those lines. I'm not a huge fan of port, (give me a Pedro Ximenez, muscat or tokay and some dark chocolate ) but the flavour and sweetness balance works really well. Any cheap stuff is fine....if it helps prevent drinking it! Have tried brandy & masala but want to my taste.
  13. Chicken liver Pâté

    Pâté. Love it or hate it. I like it and the missus loves it which comes in..... handy . Most stuff you can buy is c**p, with a few, often expensive exceptions. So i set about making my own and it's actually pretty easy and freakin delicious. I have evolved the following recipe from a few others to personal taste and final quantity: Pâté 250g cleaned chicken livers 75g butter 1/2 red onion, diced 1 small garlic clove, crushed 6 peppercorns 2 whole cloves 3 allspice berries 4 coriander seeds 3 anise stars 60ml port 60ml cream Jelly 60ml water 60ml port 1tsp gelatine power Pâté In a spice grinder/mortar & pestle grind: peppercorns, allspice, cloves and coriander seeds until fine and set aside. Melt 1/3 of the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; when foam subsides, add onion & garlic, cook until softened. Add ground spices & anise when onions are nearly cooked. Remove onion mix to heatproof bowl. Add another 1/3 butter to pan then livers; cook livers on one side until they begin to brown, about 2 minutes, then flip them and cook the other side. Be sure to keep heat relatively high so that the outside of livers sears and inside stays pink. Think ‘medium-rare’, you need that moisture. Remove livers to bowl with onions. Add port to pan and use it to clean the pan. Add to bowl with onion, livers and their buttery juices, remaining butter and cream. When cool enough, purée mixture until it is smooth – food processor or barmix in the same bowl. Scoop pâté in ramekins, smooth top. Set aside.Jelly Combine the port and water in a small, heatproof jug/cup. Sprinkle the gelatine over the top and stand until the gelatine is softened. Heat in microwave and stir until gelatine has dissolved, and let it cool. Slowly pour jelly on top the pâté, over the back of a spoon. Refrigerate for at least 2 to 3 hours or until fully set. Preferably a day or 2. Serve with bread or crackers, cheese and a bottle of red. Enjoy
  14. Tackle box backpacks

    Indeed, horizontal is critical! There seem to be heaps of bags out there where they sit in on their sides. WTF?! I have a Kato Treking Backpack (BCF) http://www.bcf.com.au/Product/Kato-Trekking-Pack-Tackle-Bag/363508?menuFrom=30602 it's pretty big and has a zipped front-loading section for the 4 included tackle trays. Works well and has a huuuge capacity, meaning that I end up putting too much s**t in it so its then too heavy. Does have heaps of zips and compartments which are kinda handy, kinda a pain in the arse too. This is acceptable for a day session off the rocks or a long walk and base on the surf beach. Have a look when they are on sale. Generally i'd always rather travel much lighter. i prefer to use a satchel style bag, over-the-shoulder. with 3 or so trays of lures, plus jigheads and SPs in their bags. Much lighter and substantially more freeedom!
  15. Prawn and rice

    Yum. Still waiting for my rack of lamb on pearl barley & mushrooms. Damn kids, I hate a late dinner.
