    What Soft Plastics/ Hardbody lures do you use/purchase?

    As the name suggests my passion is hard bodies generally using minnow/shad/surface style lures. Lure brand/style/colour purchase has been determined by amount of success with each lure. Again I am not adverse to purchasing second hand if it is what I am after. Just a simple matter of changing out the hardware for new. Generally this means Owner trebles. Have tried many brands over the years with some being successful and some not so for me . If I had to name brands preferred they would be in no particular order: Daiwa, Ecogear, Bassday and Zipbaits. Good luck with your endeavour sTB. regards, HBt.

    What fishing gear do you purchase?

    It has been a long time since I purchased any new gear. I tend to purchase second hand these days as I have found that by shopping around my dollars can go further on better quality gear. Up to this point in time I have stuck with either Daiwa or Shimano for reels and a few brands for rods . Regards, HBt.

    fishing the onkaparinga

    There are a few good videos on YouTube re fishing the Onkaparinga that are worth watching. Will give you an idea of possibly where, when and with what you might use. Alexsfishin's Onk vidoes are a great place to start. Good fishing. Will look forward to your future successful reports. Regards HBt.

    How to: Daiwa Double Clutch lures?

    The simple answer is yes I can but where I am fishing will determine this risk. I tend to use the 60's for this style of fishing them. Regards HBt.

    How to: Daiwa Double Clutch lures?

    Have had good success with twitching and pausing as well as a slow constant retrieve. Also scored some good fish kicking up plumes while bouncing them off the bottom. While they are rated to around 2-3 metres depending on the size you use I have also used them in shallow water with high sticking my rod. A great lure with potential to catch numerous species . Good luck with using them. Regards HBt.

    New rod

    ^^^ If this is what those on Big Angry Fish use then that is what I might look at though I have only seen them use 5000 reels. Good luck with your search and purchase. Regards, HBt.

    Is glue necessary on Zman Grubs

    Interested to see that some anglers use a clip when fishing soft plastics. How well do you find this works? Regards HBt.

    Why don't I catch fish?

    This may help your present situation: perseverance + skill + confidence + luck = FISH. If not then my philosophy is: If I dont have a lure in the water I cant catch a fish . Good luck with your fishing. Regards HBt.

    Small Daiwa spin reels Vs Shimano?

    Cant comment on the new model Fuego but have previously had 2 earlier models in 1000 and 1500 sizes. Very light sound and smooth reels to use. Only moved them on to upgrade. The rod that you have will determine which reel balances the best/is most comfortable. I have a 1-3kg Nitro rod that I had hoped to use a 1000 reel on but it turned out that a 2004 was a better match for it particularly when casting. Good luck with your choice. Regards HBt.

    It should change. The picture on the Daiwa website has it as right hand wind and check Google for instructions . Regards, HBt.
