  1. Have a read of Banga Baits in the DIY forum. He might mention the paint he uses to paint his lures. Regards, HBt.

    Snapper rod

    My son has just bought a new whiting rod: an Abu Garcia Veritas 3-6kgs that he has put a 4000 reel on. While the reel is a little big it allows for bycatch. These rods might be worth looking at as they are not overly expensive and seem to get good reviews. Good luck with your quest. Regards, HBt.

    1-3 kilo rod

    Hi Micky. If you were prepared to go secondhand check the local Adelaide TackleBox secondhand site. Every now and then a great rod comes up at an even greater price. Regards, HBt.
  4. Go to Youtube: Messiah Custom Fishing. There are other clips that are worth watching re bream fishing as well. Regards, HBt.
  5. And as an aside Scotto James from Messiah Custom Rods in Tasmania has been experimenting and having success with straight through braid ... no leader knot. His info and Youtube clip is certainly worth a read/watch. Regards, HB tragic.

    Hi Micky. Worth having a troll through fishing with blades on Youtube. Gives you some varying info and techniques used. Regards, HBt.
  8. Purely for bait fishing my favourite whiting rod over the years was a Jarvis Walker fibreglass rod. The 'Tooradin' model. At 188cm it was a great little rod in the boat and loaded up very nicely with any KGW on the other end.

    Winter bream

    Afraid not. Ben from BK Custom Tackle in Tasmania. He does a great job as these are other colours that were overpainted rather than clean blanks. Regards, HBt.

    Winter bream

    Thought I could start the ball rolling for this section by showing my latest lure aquisition to entice the local bream population. Enjoy. regards, HBt.
  11. Nicely done. Great writeup and catch. Regards, HBt.
  12. Thank you for the write up Des. Am just about to replace some Sunline(the original bright green stuff - those were the days) on some reels and have been procrastinating about the ADV. Always helps to read about positive experiences. Regards, HBt.
  13. Have tried the Pro Cure with limited success. Most successful scent for me had been Stimulate Ultrabite Glow Green slow release spray ... but it is not made anymore. Was a sad day for me when it became unavailable. Have one can left but too scared to use it as once its gone its gone. Regards, HBt.
  14. Apologies. Senior moment. Just checked and it was a Sienna ... but a great little reel all the same. Regards, HBt.
  15. First bream reel purchased over 10 years ago was a 2500 Symetre. I have since moved on but its still working well for the grandchildren catching squid. Great little reel. Regards, HBt.
