  11. Mustad Hoodlum as Assist hook

    I have started using them tied onto hook on large SPs for flatties as im sick of losing big girls after five minutes shakin their heads..they are good on lures but are throwaways as chemical sharpened hooks and saltwater don't mix well...the points start rusting off fairly quickly...rick

  16. Knottable wire leader

    what are you using it for luke..may help with advice...I personally wouldn't use shiny stainless for fishing..maybe lure making..but other than that I stick to mason brown single strand..spotties 27lb...Spanish you can go as heavy as you want...there is also some supple knottable wire available/Kevlar based....or black coated wire you knot twist then melt together..any others ???

  19. Confused about which boat to buy

    I doubt you will find a 5.5glass or alloy new for 40k.....glass in that size ride better than alloy..look around for good used for 40k you should be able to find a decent buy....there are many good brands...haines/cruisecraft/seafarer/etc etc etc...my mate has 5.5 stessl with 130hpyammy but prefers to fish out of my 4.8 vsea with 90yammy....less banging and better ride...there are lots of options inc polycraft.....rick
  20. Leatherjacket as bait

    due to their skin being so hard to cut and the fact that the skin peels off the flesh easily I doubt they would be useful as you wont get a hook thru the skin..fish wont eat the skin..and the skinless pieces would be picked off too easily..only my opinion but I wouldn't use them...rick
  21. Wollongong Blackfish PB and tragedy
