  1. amazing photos wise one, who was the photographer?
  2. i didn't know what to expect after reading this thread title - well done!
  4. hey all, i scored some new squid jigs which look pretty awesome, Ikado 101. I think they are by Rapala (so must be good). Has anyone tried them yet? i might give them a go this afternoon if i get the chance. thanks, James
  5. he'll feed them whatever they will eat, but where do i get it? James
  6. hi all, a friend has just stocked a dam of theirs and they want to stock it with some bass & cod etc. but the problem is the fish wont have anything to feed on. he then thought of stocking it with boney bream first to get a natural food source happening but he has not found where to get boney bream from (aquarium, wherever it doesnt matter). can someone suggest something? thanks James.
  7. your intial suggestion Poddy is too light for the size of the reel being purchased. a 20000 size reel is far better suited to 50lb or 80lb braid for heavy fishing like cubing or trolling as you suggested, a 10-15kg rod would better suit a reel around the 8000-10000 size. in this case stick to a short, heavy rod with a medium taper. The okuma VSystem jig rods would be ideal as they are only 5' long and either in 24-37 or 37-60kg models, solid sticks. Not one of those fancy "japanese brands", but one of the greats IMO if you are looking for quality, comfort and reliability over brand name. James.
  8. in my experience, a very healthy 1m king is about 8-9kg. Agree this isn't 15kg, but it could be 10-12 if it was in really good condition. James

  11. nice work Netic - what skirts and divers did the damage? James
  12. i heard it was on a peeled prawn, under como bridge?
  13. +1 for Okuma Salina II, i've got one and it is great guns! - you should be able to get the 16000 which puts out over 20kg of drag for about $350 locally. Don't buy these overseas though. a friend of mine did and the SS internals of the Aussie versions were not evident in the O/S versions and the bearings went quick. get what ya pay for. James.
  14. well done on the Rapala XR4 lures - i'll be giving mine a shot this weekend in between the squid fishing I think. James
  15. depends where you go cut_loose. RRP is apparently $19.95 or thereabouts. SidFisher, I don't know anyone special, but i have no problem paying good money for good lures.
