  1. They’re sold out of the BCF stores online and I store it seems.
  2. Shimano Curado 201, Daiwa Tatula 200L, ATC Combat 201 are all great options. If you’re worried about the ‘low’ level of drag, your thumb will naturally find its way to add a bit more pressure if the fish is going hard. Have had a Curado 200 for 5 years, and it’s done a magnificent job for my cod fishing. The DC is next level though with the computer braking system.
  3. BCF has assist hooks made by BKK that do an excellent job for assist hooks for whiting. The best sizes are the Smalls. BKK Strikers is their name. We used to sell Atomic Trick bitz but they were cleared out a few years ago.
  4. Could be a Jinker? Kind of like a high top tractor that can drive through the water. There’s a few guys on the northern flats that use them to launch tinnys if I recall.
  5. Well I’d say that because Daiwa make well over different 100 reels and models that it would be an easy thing to miss. All I did was go to Daiwa website and search for 1000 and they came up first click. The most common small Daiwa reels made now are 2000s which are similar in weight and line capacity to that of a Shimano, Abu, etc. As mentioned above, all you need to do is do some statistics checks/cross referencing and you’ll see similarities.
  6. There are 2 current Daiwa LT reels that you can get in a 1000 size. The Daiwa Revros LT and the new 21 Caldia MQ.
  7. You and me both mate! Could almost wheel the kayak through the gate from home. Will be hitting it and you up for sure.
  8. I Would suggest KI/Cape Jervis offshore for one place. Another spot is out off Port Victoria on the whiting drops, have a slop line with a whole squid head and gummy gets taken out there. I’m unsure on the season for them there though. Depending on how far you want to drive, Coffin Bay has them in the bays at times and outside the bay to the north. Or down in the South East down Robe way they can get them as well.
  9. I’ve used them for yellowfin whiting, salmon trout and bass. I haven’t used them on bream but I know that the eastern states guys have and they definitely work. Use a Slow retrieve with a pause or two thrown in.
  10. It’s still going strong mate. I ended up selling the old Lowrance unit to a mate and all the wiring still worked fine. It didn’t get too much splash and I always cleaned the unit with freshwater after each use. Once I began fishing the river a bit more I upgraded units to a Garmin Echomap 45DV with downscan to find all the hidden logs etc. Cannot fault it. So long as you give the unit a wash and dry it out properly, it’ll be fine. Stainless screws all still holding great.
  11. +1 for this. A buddy of mine has this in his tinny running along the inside of the gunnal. Keeps the wires well out of the way tidily.
  12. 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
  13. Wicked red spots on that brownie!
