  1. Cold starting problems 1999 Yamaha 60 HP

    Based on the cause, you should check/ replace the fuel filter and check the condition of the inside of the tank if you can. Might need to be cleaned.
  2. Warranty n Reel Care

    Locking the knob down tends to over squash the drag discs and grease out. Most decent reels these days have a rubber seal on top of the drag. No need to lock the knob down on them.
  3. Quick bass sesh on the surface

    Nice wild Bass there mate. Only one sentence and no punctuation for the whole report lol. Funny thing is you can understand it all just fine 😬
  4. Who sharpens their hooks

    I check every hook before use to make sure it's sharp. If not I use a sharpening stone. Takes time but it's worth it. You get the best hook up's with a sharp hook point.
  5. Is this a live bait tank or what

    It looks like it doesn’t have an overflow. If you took out the bungs the boat will fill with water.
  6. Electric trolling motor questions

    I have a similar boat and 55lb Minn Kota. A 55lb will be fine for general use, but if you want to hold in strong currents like on the Hawkesbury you will need the 80lb. The only issue in my opinion is that the whole point of the electric is to be quiet. When your using 80lbs of thrust to continually hold position it kind of defeats the purpose. I would rather anchor in a strong current.
  7. surface lures

    What fish do you want to target?
  8. Daiwa reel parts

    You should be able to call Daiwa Australia and order over the phone. Otherwise, measure the bearings size and you can get them from a bearing store. Try to get rust resistant if possible.
  9. Livebait tank with livebait tank

    I always have squid together with Slimies and Yakkas and never have any issue with squid chewing or harming the fish.
  10. Mounting of Electric Motor

    That's a nicely done fabrication there mate. One thing I can offer when mounting the Minn Kota is to level it with rubber washer packing on the 4 bolts. That way if the boat is level the shaft will be level. It will work most efficiently that way. You can't change it now, but another thing which makes it more efficient is mounting so the shaft is as close to the centre line of the boat as possible. Try pulling your boat from where you have the mount welded compared to the centre of the boat to get an idea of the extra effort needed.
  11. Big bass

    That is a very good size wild Bass. Nice picture too.
  12. Newest Site Sponsor DINGA.com.au

    Free shipping on all orders... I’ll be looking there first up next time I need something.
  13. albright knot questions

    Wind a length of line between your hands and try snapping it. If it breaks just the same then the line is worn. If you can’t break it, then it’s your knot tying that is damaging the line.
  14. Battery charging question

    I think an MX5 is a 5 amp charger right? That will do it. You don’t have to disconnect or take out the battery to charge it. Just connect to the terminals. If that is difficult, you can even connect to the main positive and negative lead ends from the battery, wherever they go to.
  15. Battery charging question

    First, how old is the battery and how long has it been dead flat for?
