    Wading Tub

    Very Nice TL! Does look a little familiar . I like the triple rod holder to manage 2 rods and keep that landing net handy and tub free. Might have to borrow that idea! You'll be able to take a slightly heavier outfit to tackle one of those flats bronzies soon One thing ive noticed: After a season or 2, the conduit wears down from sand ingress and needs to be replacing.

    Carp for bait and burley?

    LOL... i've heard that one somewhere before !!

    Carp for bait and burley?

    At one stage i thought it would be a good idea to try putting carp thru my mulcher to make burley Unfortunately it wasn't the smartest idea to drop an entire 64cm carp in whole as it jammed up the mechanism! After disassembling the screen and pulling it back out, reassembling it all went thru fine AFTER i cut it in quarters with a spade! Did produce a nice bloody burley. Chucked a wheelbarrow load of dry prunings thru afterwards cleaned it nicely, followed by a bit of WD40.

    DIY flounder spear

    Might just get in the poo when the missus/mum/gf discovers you've nicked the handle to the mop ! I like the improvised grinder too

    Tumby bay

    Southern end of the bay, where the bay curves around and 'peninsulars' towards Tumby Island. Offers some good protection from southerlies. Check it out on Google maps. Some really nice structure. Don the waders/wetsuit and go hard. have nfi how the area fires but looks really sexy. Had one session a 18 months back and pulled a nice feed of yfw and flatties on sp. All else some nice razorfish on a decent low tide. As Del mentions, 2nd creek. Looked pretty good too.

    Bandsaw - Snapper Cutlets

    I'm sure you could. Just wouldn't be to 'food standards' obviously! Also could be a challenge to clean the bits of fish and bone out of afterwards. Commercial meat bandsaws can virtually be hosed out. How about slicing with a largish chefs knife and cleaver thru the rest?

    Goolwa Cockles

    No point unless you want to join the 4wd w**ker brigade, park 200m up the beach...and churn the sand up with your highway pressure cheese cutters! Keep the beast salt and sand free. Either walk from the beach Rd carpark or as Adrian suggested: Yeah as the 'Armchair Guru' cynically suggests, get in at the start of the season, before they close it .......although given how dry the season has been there's unlikely to be much coming out of the mouth (ie the upstream dairy and sewerage discharges, where the E Coli comes from!!!) Also if you go earlier on, they will be easier to get in size and numbers

    Carpet cleaning

    NFI...but the local DIY carwash has a pressure cleaner.

    am i getting ripped of? paying 300$ for these 2 rods

    Rods or combos as pictured? Would depend on what the rods & reels actually were and their condition. Not really my area of expertise... appears to be a couple of Uglysticks? A TLD50 on one and 'something' on the other? TLD50 looks to need a bit of ...ah...TLC! Cant tell from the pic if that's brick dust, rust of general grime. Curious that that the seller didn't even bother to wipe them over with a damp cloth? Jammed in the corner of the shed with a pile of other s**t makes me cringe a little too.

    Protecting Boat lisence

    I used my vac-packer, almost like being laminated. Pretty s**t that they are just paper and a boat license. I'm not sure what part of boat + paper makes sense !? Try your local library.

    Who's been catching salmon this season?

    Not me.Closest I've been is some 'tassie' salmon from Cappos for dinner last night .

    OZ Fish TV and fishing line

    Call me a cynic ....given Black Magic are one of their sponsors, i'd take its recommendation with a 'grain of salt'!. Not to say it's c**p, as I've no idea what it is. I use a bit of Black magic gear (hooks, leader) and they're good stuff. There's a lot of marketing BS out there....

    Who's fishing over Easter?

    A dozen or so STs came to play, with a bit of size starting to show, up to ~40cm.
