  1. I pretty sure I have the Shimano Sppedmaster in 8-12 Kg. Nice little rod use if for lures and bait off the beach and also jetty fishing for squid chucking jigs as far as I can. I imagine the Maikuro would be similar.
  2. All year round mate. Rapid Bay is probably your best option. Get a livey out either on a float or on the bottom. Then get the biggest stick bait you can find and cast and cast and cast. If they are there they will check out the lure and if they don't take it will draw them to your live bait. It works believe or not. Here is one of mine from Westlakes.
  3. I'm out here now. Nuff said
  4. No worries. Luckily I have heaps of nail polish.
  5. I've got a river 2 sea killer vibe. The early one with stainless hooks and a barrel swivel on each hook. At 10 years old it has very little paint left. What type of paint does one use?
  6. If any of you fine people are over here in the lower EP send me a message. Always looking for deckies for a fish. My local mates are pretty elderly so don't handle offshore to well with bad backs etc. It is not a charter so you don't have to pay for fuel. Just mates going for a fish.
  7. Here in Coffin Bay they are in plague proportions. They are not native to the area and came in on oyster spat, probably from Smoky Bay as they were the only ones doing spat at the time. Because the good ones are in about 6 ft of water I snorkel for the and can get my 75 in about 15 mins. Good exercise. I've, and others, have spoken to PIRSA to remove the bag limits on them so we can clear them from popular swimming areas but no luck so far.
  8. Bugger the tram! That is what ubers are for
  9. Got some nice Tuna this year close in. Now they are over your way
  10. Not sure how experienced you are or whether you're talking about SCUBA or snorkelling, shore dive or boat. But none around there. Corny point is an option and everywhere south. It is not for the faint hearted or inexperienced though. I could give you easy spots around there but they are hard won. Take care for your first Cray. I got my first one at 14. Photos are me at 18 and then 2 weeks ago.
  11. Unfortunately those Dolphins are in serious trouble. Not because of fisherman but most likely pollution.
  12. Bit of an old topic. But with smaller fish like tommies and whiting I don't bother to gut them. Cut straight down at an angle behind the pectoral fin to the backbone. Then slide knife alone the backbone to the tail. Fillet off and remove the stomach bones. I have a mate that does your method but I cannot tell the difference between his and mine regarding the size of the fillet and/or retained weight. Your method is perfect for bigger fish like Snapper, Spanish Mackeral, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi etc because they have quite pronounced backbones and if you don't do your method you loose a lot of
  13. As a kid at Port Vic we would use potatoes on squid jags if we couldn't get any tommies. This type of jag. Works a treat.
  14. Have a crack at the Ledge (the locals call it 'poofters perch')at Fowlers Bay. They are always there. Up to 50kg buggers. They grab your bait and head straight around the point and bust you off, mostly. Chuck out anything live. The problems with catching Kingies where they congregate/school up is they are not feeding. They just go there to hang out so you need something special to get them to bite. Two different ones caught from the boat but within casting distance of the ledge, only a day apart.
  15. They look like some form of Daiwa BG/Saltist to me.
  16. SA is open. NT open. No worries. I'll have to check my profile. I'm in SA near Coffin Bay.
  17. Mulloway as well. Mud crabs and I'll take my snorkeling gear and get some crays.
  18. We're lucky, no ironing with COVID, work from home. I do the vacuuming. Nice little dyson that has to die soon. My wife doesn't trust my ironing. 29 years in the Army, having to pass inspection, and she reckons I'm shit. Which is good. I don't iron, even prior to now. I think she confuses ironing with washing, like when I put her whites in the washer with my fish and squid ink clothes. Best thing I ever did.
  19. With the Nirey the don't get hot. It is a real gentle pressure on the blade. But, you do need good quality blades to start with.
  20. I do all the cooking here. And she loves sharp knives. Like I do. But it is akin to me buying her a new iron.
  21. Anybody want to go on a trip? Planning on camping on a remote island about 80kms from shore. About 7 nights on the Island. Take 2 boats, one full of gear that we'll tow. Got both vehicles and boats. Just need to get yourself over here on the EP and drive up. I'll take 2 60 litre fridges/freezers out with solar and a back up gennie. I reckon the cost will $2000 all up when fuel is split. Fish will be Spanish Mackerel, Coral Trout, big GTs and Queenies, Longtail Tuna and a couple of days chasing Sailfish. Maybe Barra as well. Anybody interested?
