  1. A ROCK fisherman is missing on Sunday off the notorious southern Lake Macquarie rock shelves which has already claimed 13 lives in less than five years. Friends have told police the 22-year-old from San Remo slipped and fell into the water at Snapper Point, in the Munmorah State Recreation Area, just before 7am on Sunday. His friends threw life rings towards the man but to no avail, police said. The man, who was not believed to be wearing a lifejacket, soon disappeared. Lifeguards were joined by the Hunter Westpac rescue helicopter service, marine rescue, water police and Tuggerah Lakes police in the search for the man. His friends and family were holding a vigil at the site where he fell on Sunday afternoon. It comes only a week after a Sydney woman was washed off the same rocks while her friend was fishing. There have been at least 13 deaths after people were washed off rocks at several notorious locations along a three kilometre stretch from Flat Rock, south of Catherine Hill Bay, to Wybung Head. The search for the latest lost fisherman continues.
  2. This service should be carried out annually, unless the manufacturer specifies and permits a longer period. Note: For new inflatable lifejackets this period commences from date of purchase..

  3. Hi Brentman, Most clubs that come up to the lake at this time of the year mainly seem to target Flathead, fishing the Swansea Channel on the run out tides using live poddy mullet or soft plastics. The live poddy mullet can be caught in most locations including at the rear of the caravan park you are staying at or along the sandy stretches of the channel such as directly opposite the boat ramp wich is just outside the front of the caravan park you are staying at. The Flathead caught in the channel at this time of the year can be very large females who have just spawned they are normally very agressive in hunger as such please consider any you take as they can be the mothers of our future fish stocks. The channel is varied in depth and current flow from nil to very fast with the bottom ranging from sand to weed with a couple of rocky areas thrown in. Caution is required if you have not fished the area before or you may find yourself sitting high on one of the many shallows. Other species of fish can be caught through out the lake and chanell but in this lake it can mean moving regulary to find fish not waithing for fish to find you.The dropover where the channel meets the lake can be productive.
  4. Once Prospect Water Filtration Plant was commissioned in 1996, raw water transferred from Warragamba and the Upper Nepean dams was sent directly to the treatment facility, by-passing Prospect Reservoir. However, Prospect Reservoir remains an integral part of Sydney's drinking water supply and is still needed in times of high demand for water. The filtration plant at Prospect can draw water directly from Prospect Reservoir, providing greater flexibilty in sourcing the best quality water

  8. I usually go to a car wash with high pressure gun and use high pressure soap then rinse then apply another high pressure soap which I just leave to drain and dry. This makes the carpet easier to clean the next time
