  1. Excellent work! Another who has been waiting for a dedicated SA tide appNot that I looked, slack I know..... but what's the chance of Old Noarlunga for the Onk?Used to have an app that you could manually adjust to work it out but it was fairly complicated.From memory, it was a solid hours difference+


  2. I rocked up to work this morning to find a bag full of mainly 50's 60's lures on my desk.... to say I was appreciative is an understatement and truthfully haven't seen half the styles before so a great step back in time.Interestingly enough, some of the markings are from Japan, France and Melbourne with some showing Patent details or patent pending so someone obviously though it was going to make them someone money once.Some of the designs are very out there and come in some of the most unusual spinning designs I have every seen.Waiting on the camera to charge but thought I would drop a couple of names to see if anyone is familiar with them knowing the calibre (and age) of some of the members here...Chameleon by Sydenham (in original Fresco Lure box with instructions on how to make it swim left or right and interchangeable coloured bibs)Wonder WoblersTillin Spoons and I think a Tillin Devons (metal)Mitchell Spinners from FranceThere was also a Kmart Fly box with all original unused flies, in fact I doubt any of the lure have seen water.Some of the other plastic flies are out there as well in cricket shapes, ants, frogs, grubs, shrimpAnyway, I'll throw some pics up when I can but thought it may interest some of you.


  3. What we have here is different opinions on the jetty and it has been covered fairy well so far.But some are putting up ridiculous replies and reality is being stretched.

    Unfortunately emotions are now starting to get in the way ausea.As always, members are getting sick of reading heated dribble so please keep it on track people.You put a lot of effort into writing your posts, it doesn't take much to delete :whistle:

  4. Got it pretty well covered there Bjorn.I do mine on the camper stove with a tin. Same thing, spout bent into it and a pair if pliers to pour it into the moulds.I just melt a heap and pour it in to heat up the moulds. 2 x practice pours and they are hot as and ready to go. Throw the lead straight back in and it's melted in seconds.I normally do a season or 2 in one hit s I don't have to do it very often.Makes for a decent couple of hours out in the shed with a few beers :)


  5. Ah yes good ole summa.Those days when you hop into a car sitting out in the sun' date='and when you open the door and hop into 140deg and the steering wheel burns ur fingers.Only 12 weeks to go,might apply some uv cream now for a practice runlong hot summa days[attachment=15867']h0adb1fc.jpg[/attachment]

    Good to see she is wearing a hat to protect her from the harsh summer sun.
    I just want to know how you found that picture of my wife :ohmy:

  6. 20..... Oh no, they are eating our states waters out of all our fish, time to get the harpoons out boys !! In all seriousness though, that's fantastic to see the numbers up so high. I can't remember an occasion in the last 5 years I haven't seen them out off Port Noarlunga so can't be far away. Now that I'm out paddling every weekend I may have a closer encounter.


  7. My question is: for how many years have we not been allowed to fish there and what areas has the land based fisho lost around these parts?In my opinion if we are allowed to rape and pillage the jetty (which will happen) it's a small term gain for a long term loss.Just my 2 cents...As for boat fishing...I've been fishing the area by boat since I could walk and never once complained about not being able to fish the restricted area around the jetty. Plenty of options within a couple of K radius
