    Nice weather !

    Couldn't get out this weekend but hoping to get out next weekend (free weekend for once)!
  2. Hi David,

    I would love to take the opportunity to grab 3kilo worth of your sinkers.

    10x 30g

    24x 45g

    27x 60g

    I can come pick them up at Woodville West today after work if that suits?

    Snapper fishing lessons - worth it?

    Hi Blanikman My favourite baits are squid heads or fillets of salmon and for the ruggers, pillies

    Snapper fishing lessons - worth it?

    Hey mate I have found the snapper in metro adelaide a bit slow in the last few years but they are still around - just in smaller numbers. I suggest joining a fishing club (I'm part of the NDSFC), as you get a lot of help and can tap into some unreal knowledge (and if you are lucky, some closely guarded marks). There are also guys who do fishing tuition, such as Brad Corrie and John Winslet (ex charter operator), who are also also brilliant and have their fingers on the pulse of the local scene. The link you send seems to be quite old and dated... David

    Goolwa Cockles

    I've got a SUV and I normally head between 5 to 7 kms down the beach. You can just seem them rolling in the surf and there is no pressure from others. With the smaller limits though, you can definitely get them in good numbers without taking the car. David

    I'll be going when it opens, as I have run out of them in the freezer. Glad I have the cockle rakes - makes the process so much quicker and easier David

    Crab nets can be picked up cheaply as the others have said. I used the big heavy duty ones, as some areas i fish have a current. These are more expensive but when we go to ards, you can sometimes get 4 - 6 big ones at a time! The only downside is my little one can't pull them up. Can't wait to get out and start getting them David

    C sinkers

    Hi guys Sorry to revive an extremely old post. We were talking last night at the club meeting about c sinkers and how they are no longer manufacturered. Does anybody know who ended up buying the moulds? David

    Strike hook stickers

    Good to see supporting ABS as well I think you need to a savage tackle sticker on the left side, to balance it all out

    Where to live

    What about towns in between such as port wakefield, dublin, etc Close to adelaide and yorkes, which may open up your work options. Or you can look at two wells, gawler, paralowie - which was still in suburbia but generally have bigger sizes blocks. Good luck with your decision - at least you have a boat that will allow you to fish in most places around sa Good luck with the x-lotto - we are also waiting for all our numbers to come up as well!

    Secret spots

    Very interesting topic - i must have missed the original thread. In my role, i hear and see a lot of fish pictures and generally have a good idea of what's biting where. Similar to earlier posts, i generally don't give out specific marks, although have helped a number of regular custumers get onto the fish by putting them in the right areas, with the right bait and tides. I too have some secret spots, which i don't share, as i have been sworn to secrecy. I never fish them during school holidays and if i see a boat heading my way, i up anchor and drift. But like most boaties, i have hundreds of marks - but generally only fish a handful of them, as i know them well and they generally produce. David

    Port River dredging

    Is Safa still around? Haven't heard any updates for a while - will be interesting to see if they are involved in discussions about this matter.

    End of RecFish SA?

    Will be interesting to see what happens and how effective this new council will be. Are they volunteered positions or is there funding attached? Would hate to see the same issues with the new group - i think we need to follow the victorian model and make some drastic changes, so we can once again have an outstanding fishery in the next 5 to 10 years. Also will be interesting to see if they allow the dredging of the channel as originally planned, given they seem to be pro business (relaxing trading hours, reducing business tax, etc). David
