  1. Today
  2. Last week
  3. @nicksfishin666 Squidgy flick baits are only available in the Bio-tough range unless someone is holding stock of the old model, they have been discontinued in the other ranges so a lot of favourites are now gone Cheers Yorky
  4. hello everyone im not sure if its just me or have squidgy flick baits become virtually non existent
  5. Nice! Some interesting patterns in there, seems like you have tried a few different things in terms of the patterns that run down the top/back of the lure. Can see more than YFW falling to these, surely a few Bream will get tricked
  6. Looking great, they should attract a bit of attention
  7. They are looking great dude.... I might have to start chasing the YFW.
  8. Just a quick update. Been trying my best to pump a few out over the last week... Works been a pain in the arse. Will pump a few more out before i start to give a couple out.... but heres some I've done so far..
  9. Earlier
  10. On one trip the swell dropped right off - it was northerly for 3 days and 40 deg+. I had my fins and mask and went for a look. Some of those holes are 20 ft deep just off the beach. It is really deceptive.
  11. Beautiful fish, incredible how deep its so close to shore.
  12. I got an 80lb + fish and we landed 4 over 60lb, plus some smaller ones mixed in.
  13. Hi there, Palm Cove jetty produces some great fish -- especially on live herring/sardines castnetted underneath it off the ramp. Huge GT's and spanish mackerel have been caught there. The trouble is the (cursed) sou-easter mid-year that re-suspends the muddy sediments and keeps the pelagics offshore. So your fishing will be governed by the wind and water clarity. The sou-easter blows for weeks on end (and makes the climate bearable) between about late March and late October. The various mackerel species come right inshore when it clears up in winter. Here is article for starters: http://www.fishandboat.com.au/articles/item/193-palm-cove-jetty-dan-kaggelis?fbclid=IwAR1gCmDzBEMNR34a88KBKL4BaEGD7bbYRhELv7iPQ4AV8Eqj4o7bBAhU59w Here are some pics from the young jetty rat who features in the article. Barra school up underneath the jetty but are no easy capture. Suspending unweighted live baits under the lights at night is a proven method used by the locals. Barra don't mind your Murray-River type murkiness at all.
  14. I fished it once when on holiday there as a teenager. Fished off the jetty, caught a handful of small spanish flags. Had a hungry cuda latch onto one mid fight. Interesting, but very one sided fight on 2kg mono Depending on time of year I would imagine you would get a range of different fish (GTs, travaley, cuda, mackeral, flathead, estuary cod, Jewies, bream, flags etc). Whether they are there in numbers or they just the odd one floats through it a whole other story though.
  15. It's a good video too We stayed in Trinity Beach (just down the road) in June and the whole area is just so nice. When we went up to Palm Cove it was blowing a gale and no-one was fishing on the jetty or beach - so can't help with any info. Trinity had some people fishing the rocks (south of beach), but the short time we walked along there didn't see anyone catching anything - but it was a good sheltered spot from any Easterlies. The beaches seem to have a good drop away, especially at Trinity, only metres out from the beach. At Trinity I saw fish jumping out the water from something chasing them - looked good size too. Apparently you can get a bucket of prawns for $10 at Palm Cove although not on the day we were there But plenty of eateries along there so I'm sure some locals could help out too. Sorry can't be too helpful for your question but enjoy the trip though
  16. Planing to fish Palm Cove beach mid next year,has anyone fished there and what species have you caught.Will mainly fish the beach as seen in this video.
  17. November and so far into December has been the worst weather we've seen it here since we moved to Tassie back in March 2000... At the moment (11:48 am) it's 10.2 degrees here in Sheffield, wind chill factor makes it feel like 2.3 degrees... can only imagine how cold it is in the Highland Lakes area.. wind chill would have to be in the minus temps for sure.. Snowing up there again today.. cheers Adrian..
  18. They've certainly had some shocking weather conditions to put up with and it's not much better today either. No I'm not a contender Rod as it's only for the top fly fishermen from countries around the world, besides that I spin fish for trout and only fish the rivers.. It's not cheap to enter either I couldn't afford it any way.. here's the costing without the travel expenses etc.. ** Registration Fees Registration Fees Quantity Price P/P Total Amount Team (competitors, reserve, captain, manager) AUD $ 2250... ** Accompanying persons/guests AUD $ 1500 Additional charges for Single room occupancy AUD $ 400 An official confirmation receipt will be sent once application and entry fees are received. cheers Adrian
  19. PIRSA have been running a campaign on this for a while now https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/348155/2019_Asian_Paddle_crab_factsheet.pdf https://www.pir.sa.gov.au/alerts_news_events/news/ministerial_releases/keep_watch_for_asian_paddle_crab_and_report_it
  20. Had a quick google/news search and found this. The article is a year old and newest I found so hopefully it hasn't been more of an issue. Only 5 crabs found from 2010 to 2018. Cheers Rod https://www.busseltonmail.com.au/story/5795813/fisheries-urge-crabbers-to-look-out-for-non-native-pest-species/
  21. That's about as bad as it gets. Were you going to compete Adrian? Looks different scenario to your MO Cheers Rod
  22. Geez they are dedicated !! A bit like me, bit of wind in the air doesn't stop me
  23. I'm still using the Spotters sunnies that I won in a competition sometime back on this site... Highly recommend them... best I've ever had so far in my fishing years. cheers Adrian
  24. Yeah tend to lean towards the cheapest tool that will get the job done
