  2. Hello Raiders, This fish was caught in Wallace lake Forster and can anyone supply a ID as to what type?
  3. Today
  4. Hey guys im having a bit of trouble cracking the Murray cod. I’m fishing at my local dam straight off the dam wall and I’m using mozzarella cheese as bait. It’s a good spot because I’ve seen people catch big Murray cod here. If any of you have any tips to share that would be great? - where to cast? (I cast quite far away from the dam wall but I’m wondering if I should keep the bait on the wall) -is mozzarella cheese the best bait? -best rigs? - any other advice would be greatly appreciated Regards, Will
  5. Hey crew, not wanting to get 'political', however, the truth needs to be pushed into the mainstream. By 'truth'. I mean the FACT that EVERY local council charges developers 'head works' charges as part of the land subdivision costs. These 'head works' charges are MEANT to be put aside by each council to expand and increase infrastructure such as water, sewer, etc. But. MOST local councils have NOT invested in the increase of water storage. WHY? IF they had, despite the drought, every council would have increased water storage and therefore there would be NO NEED to go into water restrictions. The REAL issue is that existing water storage is insufficient for an increased population (more houses, more people, more water used, more water storage needed) It's well past time for the employed bureaucrats and past elected Councillors to be held ACCOUNTABLE. Please consider contacting YOUR local council and ask them what they have done over the past 20 years to INCREASE water storage. And, don't be swayed by the BS 'bluff' of new houses needing a rain water tank - that was at the cost of the home owner ... WHAT HAS YOUR LOCAL COUNCIL DONE TO INCREASE PUBLIC WATER STORAGE?
  6. They will be mate, get bait fairly easy but I'm just having a bad run, plenty of yakkas but I prefer slimeys, sometimes I'm impatient and don't look around enough
  7. Great report Dunc, a good feed there mate

    15hp electric start long shaft, about 3 years old. Will be upgrading it to 15/20 hp this year, electric start plus electric trim and tilt.
  9. Great report Peter, I’m heading up in a few weeks, hope the bait grounds are performing better by then
  10. Great little session today with some new crab traps. Couldn't get the high tide but the low paid dividends. Great conditions and empty ramp! Picked up a dozen keepers including a buck the size of a muddy. Sent home 2 stingrays, one shark, a few baby snaps and three heavily laden females. Great family day on the water. Cheers
  11. Ive got foam boxes set up for vege scrap disposal as well as breeding earthworm for bait.
  12. Interesting....I really must have a look at the canals near the bays I fish from. As for earthworm, I use them on a jighead and very slow retrieve them , gets hammered by most fish.
  13. Thanks I'll accept that. Cheers.
  14. Great report. Just walk by a canal and noticed a lot of activity. Especially bait fish and bream. Hopefully this will continue.
  15. Dave, I would love to know your temporary solution. It may help diagnose the true problem.

    Fuel prices

    Lots of roos lots of camels lots of fuel then you have to factor in how many hrs driving glad its not me
  17. There is no such thing as 'best' Its what you can afford & what does the job for the price! You can but waterproof pants & jackets for as little as $25 each, will they suit what you want? Cold weather you need lined or have layers, hot weather you need a shell. There is no 1 answer!
  18. Hi, Welcome aboard. The name of the jacket is Rainbird. Great jacket. Expensive. Cheers.
  19. Thank you very much. I'll have a look

    Fuel prices

    Neil. I am waiting on just one more quote to transport the stuff and I think it will be sent by freight rather than have me drive it over. Gonna cost around $1800 just in fuel for me to go over there and back, then there's at least a couple of nights accommodation , I don't mind having a kipp in the car but not for 3 nights each way. It's a bloody long drive and I ain't getting any younger. While I would like to do it, the more I think about it the harder it's getting. If by chance I do do the trip I will surely drop in and see you, will have a mate with me each way so won't be doing all the driving by myself. Frank
  21. The jacket I own is......how can i describe it.....like a rain jacket that traffic controllers wear in inclement weather. Keeps me completely dry underneath, I purchased it from workzone a few years back. Combine that with my full sized 1 piece waders, I've fished in some pretty horrendous weather and stayed conpletely dry.

    Shame they don't appreciate the bones mate. Fish cooked one the bone beats a fillet any day of the week for me - especially as you get to hunt around for all the bits in the heads and collars. Whiting are especially good cooked whole.
  23. Hi, just wondering what the member prefer on a Rain & Wind jacket.

    Hi, I stand corrected. There are Manuals on line to buy also there is a guy doing a demo on You Tube with a 15hp Mariner. Cheers.
  25. As I said once you get really good at controlling the spool with your thumb you can start to loosen it off for a very long cast. You wont really be able to cast into headwind unless you put more spool tension on and those 2 factors will really decrease your distance. Baitcasters aren't really about distance but once you become a natural at it you will be able to cast just as far as a spinning reel. When you do the cast with lighter spool tension and you see a backlash appearing mid cast that is when to put your finger on the spool and slow it down so that the spinning releases the backlash the further your lure travels.
