    Nothing as yet, had a few police inquiries from interstate but they weren’t his trailer/kayak. Still hopeful someone will slip up soon and it will show up somewhere.

    Kayak sounder

    I run a Garmin Echomap 45DV on mine and it’s an awesome little unit. I paid close to $500 for mine and I highly recommend checking it out for its highly detailed maps, sonar plus down/structure scan. For your rough budget of $800 you can definitely get a good sounder for that. The Hook 2 4X is a basic unit that still gives you sonar and maps. But it’s at the lower end of the features scale. I would invest money in a slightly higher class of sounder than the Hook 2 as it’ll mean higher quality target separation and a more accurate representation of what you’re seeing on the display screen. For a comparable price point to the Hook 4x, another sounder to look at is the Garmin Striker 4 Plus; it has maps and sonar but higher quality for a fraction more in price.

    Yeah the sleeping cabin is a small rooftop tent and it’s the only trailer setup like that in SA so very distinguishable. Hopefully some information turns up soon. Plenty of people looking for it across social media and businesses, etc.

    Hi Dave, No they didn’t get his Mirage Drive as he kept it inside the Ute tray. So they only have the kayak but not the drive nor a paddle either. Also his rooftop tent was strapped shut using twin Kanulocks with steel cables so good luck getting through that without an angle grinder.

    Hi guys, Putting this up for a friend who sadly had his pride and joy stolen last night from North Haven. We were out fishing on the river during the day and barely a couple of hours after he arrived home it was taken. It’s a one of a kind trailer and rooftop tent setup with a yellow Hobie PA14 on it. The front storage hatch has an Australian flag wrap over it. Please can everyone keep an eye out for it across the state and if anyone sees or knows anything, contact police or Dave on 0438190462.

    Bushy's night

    It was all about catching sand whiting on surface lures and how his experiences could translate to our yellowfin whiting. Starting from the beginning was gear talk; graphite rods, 1000-2500 sized reels with 6lb braid and 8-15lb leader depending on bycatch (flathead, tailor, salmon, trevally etc). Next the lures and the main three that Bushy rated highly were the Bassday Sugapen, Atomic K9 Bulldog and Zerek Trail Weaver in lures that are transparent. Instead of the trebles Bushy definitively recommended using assist hooks, home made or bought in the size 8-10 size. If making your own then have the two hook trailers staggered in length and there's no need for the middle treble so get rid of it. Also when connecting your lures to your leader, never use a loop knot or clip, always tie it directly. Where you tie it to the tow point was also a factor in your lure's action in the water and to check where it is tied after each fish so the lure maintains the best action over your fishing session. The one key thing Bushy did mention that a lot of people don't do is to have a diamond stone hook sharpener when you're fishing and after every fish you hook, sharpen your lure's hooks. He attaches his to his fishing vest and after each hookup he sharpens the assist hooks and he believes it makes a huge difference in landing a couple or a bag out. He explained that the inside of a yellowfin's mouth is very rough and blunts hooks quickly. Little one percenters like this make a big difference. Always throwing in a joke here or there, the night wrapped up around 9pm after a load of general questions from those present on the night. Very informative and a lot of lure sales probably occurred this week along with orders for assist hooks etc.

    2018 Fishing goals

    I look forward to you ticking them off AR1. You can get salmon over 3kg from Waits/Parsons on ocassion, just keep on the move to find the schools when they’re in full swing. Fishing the Murray for cod will be lots of hours but the reward is worth it! Learninglures I really hope you tick the double off as a 20lb snapper especially is an epic fish from a boat let alone a kayak. AussieDave hope you’re on the mend, can’t keep a good man out for long. Good time of year to tick off the mully and kingie if you are prepared to fish the Port and Augusta respectively. Meppstas, you’re smashing the trout each season. Massive congrats on the new PB trout from this year, that’s going to be hard to beat. PP, flathead are such a cool fish. Expect them to turn up again when spring begins. Might have to join you up the north for a morning session once the weather warms up. Expecting those northern species to gain in size on your next trip.

    2018 Fishing goals

    With this year nearly halfway through, I thought it be time to revisit some fishing goals I had set for this year. I was wondering if any other S&H members had any fishing goals for this year they’ve ticked off or aim to in the next 6-7 months? Personally I’ve had a good year so far with a lot of new PBs and new species ticked off including first SBTs and samsonfish, PB snapper, kingfish, flathead, callop and cod etc. For the rest of the year I have a couple more goals to tick off. Mainly a salmon over 4kg, new PB kingfish (>5kg), new PB bream (>42.5cm) and hopefully come summertime I can get into some yellowfin whiting on poppers. Anyone else have a couple of fish to tick off this year?

    One Door Closes. Another Door Opens.

    You will be missed in that store for sure. Sad to see you leaving the industry but I know you’ll be back in the future. Probably under better circumstances. Im looking forward to us fishing more though. Yorkes is calling us...

    Good Camping/Fishing Spots

    Burners was peaceful until I nearly blew us up with that dodgy butane cooker ahaha. Yorkes is an awesome place to camp and fish like the others have mentioned. It’s probably myself and Southie’s most common overnighter trips. So many options available.

    Photo Theft

    Show us your Latest Fishing Purchases!

    Nice rod Southie! Hopefully you get it bent next tues/wed when we go fishing. Here's my newest purchases for the upcoming cod season and a new callop setup as well because my old rod got cut by a car door.

      Called into BCF Richmond today, but the staff said you were not working there?

    3. Kuerschie


      Hmmm I was working there but left the store for half an hour to run a store order down to BCF Marion. I am very sorry for making you run down to Richmond for nothing, which part of the hills are you in? I can come through tomorrow afternoon if that suits you?

    4. Kuerschie


      I'll give you a call tomorrow AM to sort it out. My number is 0406552742
