  1. Try this or look on youtube for other methods
  2. Well what can I say, thanks to Stewy and Donna and all of the moderators for their hard work. I know that I haven't posted much but I always liked to read all of the reports. I started on hear when Ken had the site and it has just gone from strength to strength. I hope you relax into the next chapter of your lives and fish like crazy. Thanks again for everything, take care of yourselves. Big-Pete
  3. The cost of an after market unit is about $800.oo from Queensland , they work well. Big-Pete
  4. Check out a tyre repair kit , they have a thing to ream out the hole before installing the plug. They are pretty cheap. Big-Pete
  5. Guess which one catches the most squid? Big-Pete
  6. I am pretty sure lifejackets aren't really used in the rivers up there because if your in the water you are gone any way. Big-Pete
  7. You haven't said which type of line you bought or where you are going to fish. Lake Illawarra is a good starting point the flies you would use would be crazy charlies, clouser minnows (small size). I would suggest you start on the sand flats and just get the hang of casting and then move onto weed beds etc. Fish the flies slow let them sink and do a dot dash type of retrieve. You could look at joining the Illawarra Fly Fishers they are a fairly active club. Hope this helps a little Big-Pete
  8. Dura Hubs are oil filled I have a set and love them, glass window at the front you and see if the level is low or contaminated. Easy to fit and fill, youtube has a video on fitting them. Big-Pete
  9. Hi everyone I am looking for some gears for a project I am working on. I have looked on evilbay and google but to no avail. So I was wondering if anyone has or knows where to get spur gears either in nylon or metal of what ever kind I did buy some plastic ones but I am sure they wont last. I am after 2x 28 mm dia and 2x 20 mm diameter as long as they are all the same teeth type. Thanks in advance. Big-Pete I no longer require these thanks
  10. Hi Divey, I have one of these units and I love it the downscan image is like a photo, easy to install and operate, the only downside is the mounting bracket but once you get used to it very easy. Huey looked after me, great price and exceptional service Big-Pete
  11. Well its like this I did catch a couple of whiting and I did raise some bream to surface lures but I only went out twice as much as it is nice to stay and catch up with Relatives . Saw some dolphins up close and not so personal, did see the 9pm fireworks. Did fish a creek/drain/canal for some small bream and Roberta your area has some monster eels one I saw was seriously scarey. Big-Pete Dang it I did not see the donut shop
  12. Thanks everyone for the replies , I will be taking some of my hand made lures up with me, I just need to order some temporary fencing so that I can tie them on safely without being attacked by the local fish. I will be having a crack at the jewies off the break wall all going well. Big-Pete PS Roberta will 60lb trace be strong enough for the local bream or should I go heavier.
  13. Just letting know that I am heading up your way my first holiday in years so lock up your fish stocks, hide the bream and the lizards. I arrive early next week. Not that I am looking forward to it just be careful not to get between me and the water. Big-Pete
  14. I have the CMC trim tilt on my 25 hp and love it, great service and great product. Big-Pete
  15. Love the photos excellent shots. Big-Pete
