  1. Are you saying split ring means loop knot is not required
  2. Not many responses.. maybe it would be be better in Saltwater Lures section Donna?
  3. Hi Raiders, This probably sounds like a dumb question, but here goes.. When MUST you use a split ring? I am referring to split rings which are attached to hardbodies/surface lures/vibes/blades/poppers/metals for the purpose of connecting to your line. Some lures come new in the box with split rings and some don't. I've heard different theories like: - Never tie a knot directly to a split ring - Can tie a knot direct to a split ring but don't use a loop knot - You can use snaps to connect to split rings because split rings already behave like a loop knot - Removing the split ring from a lure will impact the action severely - Adding a split ring will improve action - Etc, etc To me split rings are just another added pain to deal with. Another possible point of failure and they are expensive and fiddly to deal with! In the interest of keeping things simple, I was considering removing them altogether from my lures (of course they are still necessary to connect trebles to the lure!). I'm interested in your thoughts and opinions on this topic.. How do you generally connect your main line/leader to hardbody lures? Cheers, Undy
  4. Hi papafish, How would an English-only user go about conversing in wechat?
  5. Probably more eyes and questions here aren't there?
  6. I have yet to use mine, but I've been told that a very, very slow roll is all that is needed. It is a real test of your patience when using this method!
  7. zerek tango shad - floating or suspending Dave?
  8. Nice catch Goingfishing and good on you for looking out for a fellow boater's welfare! A nice thing to hear in this day and age.
  9. Well done Mike! What a thrill that must have been! Surprised about the lack of fight though.
  10. Well done on your first king Neil! Hope it's the first of many! Interested in how you located the kings. Were they busting on the surface or did you see some arches on the sounder?
  11. Hi Reelcrazy, How do you manage to launch a yak from Fig Tree? Looks like it would be quite a challenge to get the yak to the water.\ Undy
  12. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction guys. Google maps is really off the mark for this location! Also, checkout the location for Bantry Bay!! I suggest any fishos should cross reference RMS charts and Six Maps when scouting out unfamiliar waters. Don't rely on Google apps or Earth only as they are not always reliable as these two locations show. It could save you a lot of time and some missed fish! Cheers, Undy
  13. Thanks Henry. If you search for Sugarloaf Bay in Google Maps, you'll see it is in a totally different location to what you say. Hence my confusion. Cheers, Undy
  14. Hi Raiders, I am a little confused with the location of Sugarloaf Bay (Middle Harbour) according to descriptions from other posts in the forums here. According to Google Maps, Sugarloaf Bay is off Killarney Drive (Killarney Heights), just west of Flatrock Beach. However, from my interpretation of posts from other Raiders, what is commonly referred to as Sugarloaf Bay is here -33.791400,151.229381 which I believe is also the location of The Steps (accessible via the track where Cammaray Rd meets Emerson Dr). This location is directly north of Sugarloaf Point in Castlecrag. Please correct me if I'm completely off the mark here! Can someone please clarify which of these is the Sugarloaf Bay that is often referred to as an accessible landbased spot with some deep water and the occasional promise of some pelagic action? Many Thanks, Undy
  15. That is one amazing photo. Thank you for sharing.
