  1. There are definitely a few different designs out there!
  2. Brilliant idea I make a lot of burley pots and have a lot of customers who want one that opens up at the bottom. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get it to work, as the design I want to use has a two kilo base but will have another play around during the Christmas break David
  3. We won't really know how the laws will be implemented by the fisheries officers - but I'm sure we'll have a few test cases until it is settled. A spot that we have, you also get mulloway and snapper - but the mullies will only touch a live bait. If you use dead bait, you pick up the snapper! But to have kings in that mix - god that sounds like an amazing spot David
  4. Crazy but i have to attend a birthday party that starts at 2pm! He can't stand footy - will be interesting to see how many people attend! I for one will be streaming some of the game on my phone Not that i support either team but still an important game
  5. With rods, I generally stay with the bigger brands and don't spend more than $100. With reels, I also stick with brands - particularly in the bigger models that have a bait runner function. With the smaller ones, I also stick with a brand but try to get them as cheap as possible. I used to get them from the states but with the dollar the way it is, not worth it anymore. Given this, I normally wait for the big sales (such as complete angler) and when they have them running out (normally between $20 and $30), I'll buy a dozen of them. Yes, they might only last a few seasons before dying but them throw it out and open another box Chasing smaller fish, it doesn't matter that they have limited ball bearings and also doesn't matter if the little one breaks it! BUT in relation to terminal tackle, I generally go for the better branded hooks (diachi and black magic), swivels (black magic) and fishing line (maxima). I tried some of the cheapie tackle and have been let down a few times when a bigger fish takes it, so don't take the risk anymore. I also generally don't reuse my terminal tackle, so again, buy them in bulk when on sale Fishing can be as cheap or as expensive as the wife allows.... David
  6. Well done to everyone who entered I think next time, i'll do ball sinkers to make it harder
  7. Savage, yes, only have a Facebook page at the moment but every strikehook member is eligible to have a go. There continues to be some close guesses but no cigar yet. Keep on trying guys
  8. Sorry Don, that guess has already been taken. Next time we catch up, i'll give you one of the new abs splat stubbie holders as a participation prize Keep guessing guys
  9. Yep, a few close guesses, except for Don Should no one win it before Bjorn gives the go ahead for the next round of guesses, he may need to add a number range.
  10. The funny thing is i can't remember how many were in the box! But you are right, if we do another comp we might do it by weight - but a mixed box to make it more challenging
  11. Hi guys Just to give everyone a clue, these sinkers are my 30 gram swivel bombs Surprised no one has tried to come over and count them David
  12. Had the privilege of being interviewed this morning as part of Rowey's Fishing Show Great bloke and a really good team - not sure how i went though, as was hell nervous! If anyone is awake at 5.30am tomorrow morning, tune in to 5AA to hear it, as there will be a prize or two available David
  13. I've been using Rob for a couple of decades - he is cheap and does a great job. Also good for a chat (don't go if you are in a rush)
