  3. Yeah Land based fishing in Darwin, firstly , watch out for crocs ! Mandorah Jetty i would go to if decent tides, they get a mixed bag off there inc Spanish macks , queenies , trevally , sharks. The wharfs do still fish ok , but the majority of decent trevally etc will smoke you on structure .

  7. Its a Head ache these rules.......why are they not crystal clear. Reading through all the fine print etc.
  8. DMCK , i just want to be sure what im buying as tuna oil doesnt contain blood. As the way the legislation reads for this state any form of animal blood (and a fish being an animal) is not legal within 3 nautical miles of the state mainland.
  9. Savage , from my understanding thats incorrect ... the actual SA legislation states any blood of an animal. And a fish , if researched on line is classed as an animal.
  10. Hi guys , i have a question regarding tuna oil. By law , it is illegal to berley with blood (amongst other things) from our saltwater shores. I see that alot of tuna oils available in tackle stores are very dark and thick , some are very pink/clear in colour also . My questions are, does anyone know the process of how the make tuna oil ? is there blood in tuna oil ? Is it legal to use tuna oil from the shore to berley ? cheers,

  13. Hi all, Is there anyone on here that uses low profile baitcaster reels with braid in freshwater (NOT abu 5000/8000 etc ! ) and fishes 1/8-1/4 ounce jig heads ? need some advice !
