  1. Just watched the news story on TV on this. They said the pollution is caused by firemen training at the airport and the foam going into the water.
  2. Battery charging question

    Thanks for the tips. I have got the battery out of the boat and will leave it on the charger and see what it does. The MX 5.0 does have a setting for bigger batteries so it should work.
  3. Battery charging question

    The battery is only a year old and would have only been flat a week
  4. Battery charging question

    I have left my battery switched on and it is completely flat. I can switch to the secondary battery and start the boat as this should be fully charged. I park my boat on the street and getting the flat battery out to charge it is extremely difficult and I'm not sure the MX5 motorbike battery charger would do the job. So, if i took the boat on the water, using the secondary battery to start it, will running the motor charge up the flat battery? or do i just need to suck it up, buy a new charger and extract the battery from the boat?
  5. Fishing goal this summer

    2 goals for me. Catch a kingfish on my new downrigger and make it out to the FAD.
  6. Canon unitroll downrigger help needed

    Thanks for the advice. Braid has been ordered and wire stripped.
  7. The wire on my downrigger has jumped off and jammed the spool. According to online videos the only way to get the spool off is to strip the spool but I cannot as it is jammed and I cannot move it. Any suggestions on how to fix it it anyone that can do this in sydney?
  8. Botany Kings

    Nice! How deep were you and how far off the bottom were you trolling?
  9. Live baiting - rigs and tricks

    That is a great show. Need to catch a large salmon and try it under a balloon like they do.
  10. Live baiting - rigs and tricks

    Wellzy - you mean like this?
  11. Live baiting - rigs and tricks

    I have tried a few times while out on the boat to drop a live (Yellowtail) down but am yet to catch anything. I wanted to check what rigs people are using as I have been hooking them in the back and dropping them over the side with no weight at anchor or on the drift. They seem to hang out mid winter or go under the boat. Im usually around and out of Botany Bay. Should I be adding a sinker, paternoster style? When trolling a live bait, should I also add a sinker to get it deeper and what speed should I troll? I have also been catching a few squid and am keen to know how to troll the head and tentacles around as I keep the rest to eat. Do I troll the heads weighted as well? Thanks for the advice.
  12. Winter Beach Fishing clothing

    Mine are Sharkskin brand and have a fleece lining. Check online for them.
  13. Winter Beach Fishing clothing

    I use a pair of wet suit pants and find them very warm and comfortable. A pair of wetsuit dive boots can work as well to keep you warm.
  14. Quintrex Ski Pole

    I have ski hooks on my quintrex and the bait board can stay in place
  15. Fishing from Boat at Night

    Kia Ora Recurve. I wasn't sure if anyone had picked up on the name. I will definitely be taking the head torch and using the Nav lights. Will be chasing Snapper in the dark this winter and hope to avoid the passing Whales.
