  1. Your in a good local for both Salt/Fresh Ill have to give it a crack in Manly Dam just out of damn curiosity now..lol
  2. Thx Aardvarking, that's a damn good way to go about it. @Weelzy and Dirvin thanks also for your imput, Guess ill be using some Sfactor tomorrow. Cheers Mark.
  3. Burley up heaps and throw out corn or bread on a small hook without a float or any weight. Just let it look as natural as possible. They always come in under the ducks when they are being feed. Can use the same technique with bread off the dam wall to catch small Bass as well.
  4. Gday Raiders, I've always been sceptical about putting scent on SP's. I always thought the action, retrieve and rod tip movement did the job. I have heaps of tubes of Scent and was wondering if I should give it a try. What's everyone's thoughts on the subject? Cheers Mark.
  5. They are so much fun Mike, I haven't picked up another rod since I got it..lol
  6. Dont give up on the lures and SP's, one day it will just click and you wont look back, Well done on the PB Mark,
  7. Nice Haul mate, some healthy looking fish right there. Cheers, Mark.
  8. Here's my take on it after a lot of question to people who use baitcasters and swear by them plus watching the pros on TV comps and dvds. Baitcaster pros: less weight, more line capacity, better control (1 handed casting), heavier drag, more options(gear ratio), less line twist, manages heavier lines better, handles heavy lures with a smaller sized reel vs spinning. Cons: They don't handle lighter lures very well, not very good with light lines, harder to learn to cast, Is fun trying to learn using it as I see people using them single handed with such accuracy that I want to be able to do that as well. Cheers, Mark.
  9. Thx guys, and thanks for the tip @seaurchin.
  10. Gday Raiders, Got some cash for my Birthday on Wed so I spent it on a new Shimano Raider and Caenan Baitcaster, Last time I used a baitcaster I spent more time unravelling bird nests than actual fishing. This was my new mission. So today I wondered down to Fairlight with the express aim of practicing with hookless lures just to get a feel for things. After an hour of using Lures, divers and poppers with success I decided to throw on an 1/8 ounce Sp and try for a fish. First cast produced a nice flattie which inturn became lunch. Moral of the story, I've just turned 46 so never doubt you can learn something new and give it a crack. Mark.
  11. Big Neil, An extreme optimist isn't what my wife calls me when I talk about fishing but ill run with it..lol Mark.
