  1. How to find a spare Velox trailer wheel

    I just sold a few on gumtree. few weeks ago. they come up on there quite often.
  2. Limitations of Stacer 509 sea runner

    Good to have one anyway. as you might not intend to go 2 nm offshore but could easily end up out there with flat batteries, failed radio equipment, etc. better to be safe than sorry.
  3. Notorious

    I Agree with Rick, use clear mono, thinnest diameter you can get away with. catchrate should improve imencly!

  9. Fish cleaning table

    Cheers Zoran. yeah I'm same as you when it comes to fresh water and fish. i find fresh water does horrible things to fish fillets.im Not sure exactly why. thats why my catch goes straight into a slurry of saltwater and ice whole, unkilled Unscaled and ungutted. I find it puts live fish into a quick hybernation and death resulting in no stress. and by the time I'm home with the catch its chilled and firm, thus easy to gut and fillet and skin, (reason I never scale my catch) leaving scales on keeps the skin firm and easier to get skinless fillets and steaks. I only use the fresh water to clean the table, knives n rods afterwards. as i skin and carve my fillets I place straight into Clipsal bags and then straight into the big chest freezer. no need to rinse fillets if everything is clean and use disposable plastic gloves like the deli girls use in Coles n woolies. Cheers marty

  13. Fish cleaning table

    Nagh, not really. just like a comfortable area to clean where a few mates can have a bundy or beer while doing the chore.😜 I used to clean them on the lawn but now there are a few outside cats so need to get it hygeneically correct.😜 Plus my lower back and neck are pretty cactus nowadays. So working standing up is less painful. Getting a start on it this Thursday so will post a few pictures of the progress, cheers marty
