  1. Yeah the boat is an all rounder, family duties at Jibbon, Maianbar, Lilli Pilli sandbar etc, bit of towing donuts, and a bit of fishing. Good set up for that with 10 people capacity, lots of seating and a bow sunshade.
  2. Hi mate, sportsman 232 open. Awaiting build date at the moment
  3. Thanks mate, I’m a rank novice boater so baby steps first
  4. Couldn’t wait. Bought ; - Shimano Sedona XT (2-4kg) 7ft combo for the estuary...mostly soaking baits. - Saragosa 6000 & 7ft Raider Heavy Snapper rod and an Ugly stik gold 7ft 6-10kgs to be paired with existing Penn Spinfisher 6500 as “guest” rod. I’ll put an existing 20 years old never used Spinfisher 8500 on the 6’6 Silstar 10-15kg crystal blue power tip as the inshore trolling outfit See how we go.
  5. Gday Guys, Finally graduated from “landlubber” status and very fortunate to have a 23ft Centre console on the way from the states. I am very keen on advice for rod/reel selection for the type of fishing I’ll be doing, out of Port Hacking and realize I’ll be looking at 2-3 different combos here. I am not necessarily looking for model numbers etc but more if I’m on the right track 1. estuary bait and soft plastics. I’m thinking 6-7ft, 2-4kg range and 2000-3000 series reel. Pretty straightforward. Really, considering bait runner for feeding line down berley trail, also flickin

  7. As some of you folks may have seen from other posts, im back into the fishing after a too long lay off, as such a lot of my old gear is rat sh1te, giving the perfect excuse to update! Well today i picked up my new estuary combo Silstar 6'0 PC-602SPXL "Crystal Power Tip" Rod Okuma Epix EFS20 Reel Picked up for a quite reasonable $214 from Fish & Dive ....it feels like a fantastic combo I've also picked up some Shakespeare Cajun 8lb mono and some squidgy jig heads....so i think i will go and have a cast this afternoon, now what about the Is it just me or is buying new gear like bei
  8. Thanks for the welcome lads Well, just got back from Ramsgate, fished the beach and groynes for a couple of hours with a work mate....... got a 50cm flattie on soft plastic, drank a couple of lagers and the Tigers are playing in an hour All in all a top day and a good return to angling Cheers Rob
  9. I plan on heading out with the trusty beach rod in a couple of weeks to Green Hills for a cast. We should "hook up"
  10. As my forum name suggests i am presently fishing from size 10 runners planted on terra firma I will be trying to get out on my cousins runabout from time to time and hire tinnies - still a way off getting my own boat sorted Would love to make it down the Mortdale pub on Sat but have some other plans - next time will be sweet Thanks for the welcome lads
  11. G'day Everyone, Looks like a top site you have here. I have found fishing again after a way too long spent away from it I've pulled the gear out of storage and spent last weekend greasing and oiling (reels that is ) and getting some new tackle. Will be heading down to Bonnet Bay in the morning to grab some poddy mullet and will have a stab out at Molineaux Point and maybe along the Groynes at Dolls Pt tommorow at High tide.....will let you blokes know how it goes. Anyway, you'll be hearing more from me in time, which is probably not a good thing Cheers Rob
