    What a great trip. I would totally eat those spotties too! They're good eating, just cut the blood line out.

    Wow they sure are fat! Great work
  3. Where to Install Berley Pot?

    Looks good. I like how it sits away from the transom a bit too. Mine is flush against the transom and has resulted in some well smashed knuckles over the years.

    I don't think it would be an issue. If water can't get in from the outside then it can't get in can it? I've never used aluminium bolts so can't comment on that. My berley bucket is mounted with SS bolts and there's no corrosion around them. I've got SS fittings all through my boat and used sikaflex and also got some nylon washers to sit between the SS washer and hull just to be extra cautious. Disclaimer: I do have a bit of corrosion in my boat but it's not around these fittings so I reckon it's a pretty safe choice.

    How about longer bolts so you can get through that brace? I think that would be better than self tappers.
  6. Show us your custom built rods

    Last one. This is a 1-2kg spin stick that I built very quickly for a trout trip years ago. Caught some trout on it then got back home and caught an 87cm jewie on it, yew! Very cheap stick that has now caught dozens of fish and still going strong. I got the blank for free off a mate and spent probably $10-$15 on components (mudhole bargains). By far my cheapest and fastest build but one of my favourites. (oh it's the one in the middle).

    How about I just send the decky out to get the boat?

    Thanks Ron that’s a great tip, much appreciated. Another good setup I’ve seen is to have a bungee cord attached to the anchor so it pulls boat out from the beach and when you want to jump in you can pull the boat in using a rope secured on shore. Let it go and the bungee cord pulls it back out safely away from shore. I just find I sleep a lot better when the boat is secured to a mooring rather than an anchor. But yeah then there’s that other issue of getting eaten when I swim out to get the boat. If my boat was bigger I’d take the yak with me.

    The following weekend I'll be at Elizabeth Beach and hoping to launch from the beach there and fish inshore. If conditions no good then we'll smash the flatties in the lake.

    Unfortunately this is another trip to Broughton that I must postpone. Just got word that my father in law has been booked in for a quadruple bypass op on Friday, so wife is going to Newcastle to be with him and her mum, and I'm looking after the kids. The kids don't even like fishing, everything is so unfair (yes I'm being sarcastic, but yes I'm also disappointed).
