  1. Been a while but finally back. HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GREAT EASTER! Just uploaded a local Snapper caught on plastic last trip out metro south
  2. Young star in the making. Gee you can fish. Very well done!
  3. Ive been getting a heap of mullies on my 3-6KG Control Freak and 3000 Shimano Ultegra. This has power to burn and I know if I hook anything of size I will be able to control it no problem.Im currently just running 8lb Fireline and 8lb leader and this set up catches me Big Bream and plenty of schoolies in the Onk.But this set up is equally at home in the CoorongBut obviously if you wanted a budget outfit, you couldnt go wrong with a decent Shimano 2500 and 2-5kg stick. The extra kilo or two in rod rating allows you to steer fish around known rocks in the river or sunken snags.
  4. Sorry this should read PLATILthere is a PLATIL STRONG but I always though that the plain PLATIL was superior.
  5. If you can find an old skool spool of Mono called Platyl - snap it up. its very soft and supple and good diameter. I used to use it on all my reels prior to moving to braid. If anyone ever sees it for sale please let me know?
  6. I heard that Natural coloured Damiki Grubs are always worth a crack :woohoo:
  7. Went out to chase some WINTER bream today, I was really just fishing on a wing and a prayer when all of a sudden my Damiki F-grub in Omebi got engulfed. The fish fought hard and I had a Cracking bream of 30plus cm's.I proceeded to land another 3 BIG bream in a row, all approx 35cm and the whole time I was weighting to hook a big one. Finally whack, I had hooked a steam train. This things was pulling line and for a while I thought I was onto a schoolie. Finally I got it withing site and was stoked. This fish was approx 40 odd cms and was SOLID [as.The Millerod Control freak put the hurt on t
  8. That is interesting indeed. Back when I was in the Navy which was approx 1987-1990, the ship I was on pulled into O/Harbour and the crew took leave in Adelaide. was either the HMAS Swan or HMAS Brisbane.Do you know what date that O/H became too shallow for Navy warships?
  9. Yeah I tend to agree Fabian, the less fish that are released at great depths the better. I think 25meters is about as deep as you want to be fishing to ensure a high success rate of released fish if the angler has done everything correctly.If the charter was fishing in any deeper than that then they have probably made a good decision to move on and stop fishing.
  10. :cheer: :cheer: :cheer: I also wanted to point out that w luckily we live in a democratic society, and if the majority or rec anglers want to open it for fishing, then I am happy to move forward with doing this the best we can. Ie I would fully support it. I'm just throwing out reasons that we might want to look at leaving it closed. As most of you know, earlier I was all for opening it and maybe making it c&r only but soon other members pointed out the impracticality of that idea. LOLI of course if the majority say they want it open, I would fish from it myself.The advantages of a foru
  11. Hi Shannon, thanks for your enquiry. I have been over this previously but I am happy to go over this again for you.Yes Snapper are susceptable to baratrauma, as are many other species of fish.Our members are all strongly encouraged to learn the signs of baratrauma, and check and monitor each capture the best they can before making a judgement call as to if the Snapper can be tagged and released succesffully and with minimal risk of it dying.Our members are encouraged to look for any sign of the swim bladder coming from the mouth, any signs of an inflated swim bladder in their stomachs and if
  12. Another problem that has caused me to give this issue further thought is the fact that the jetty if not agreed to be maintained by the council, will just collapse and over time will dissintegrate.I am no pondering is there more benefit to fish species to have the structure left in tact and allow fishing or let it dissentergrate and for them to have just the remnance of this structure?
  13. Hey this is a great healthy debate guys, although Im normally fairly to the point, I always try to respect everyones right to their own opinions, and its good to read others thoughts on the issue. :cheer: :cheer: But let me address your above question TB. Yes I am strongly against spatial closures in Upper Gulf St Vincent as the areas that are proposed to be locked up have not been locked up before. Stanvac jetty on the other hand through private ownership by mobile has been locked up wether we like it or not for decades. This has built a working No Take Zone. This zone has been and should
