    Solo botany king fest

    71 kings boated on bait your saying? From sunrise to before 9.30am when you left the water. Is this one person fishing or 10 people combined? You are a Super fisher

    Engine Corrosion anodes

    I check and clean my Suzuki internal anodes every 6 months. The more often you clean them the better. They build up with “junk” very quickly and need to be cleaned often to do their job properly. I change plugs according to the manual and also how I feel about how much use I’ve done and how the engine is starting/ running. I clean filters if they can be every year. I generally replace every few years. I do always check them often though.

    Last nights storms

    Geez mate, that IS a lot of work. Are you sure it’s worth doing all that? What car is it? I haven’t tried hail damage but Ive used the dent removal guys on small dents and they are brilliant. As long as they can access the dent from the inside, it isnt really big and the metal is not stretched, they bring it back to normal.

    Dangerous casting practice

    Haha. Funny you chased him down and gave him a serve. This sort of thing happens everywhere. I don’t get it either. Stupid people, no consideration.

    How to stop losing fish around structure

    You must have come across something that was not quite right. Fluoro should perform better than “everyday” mono in my experience. Don’t use cheap stuff. Get quality and you will find it out performs mono.

    Inconvenience? That would mean every moving boat is committing an offence. What boat makes waves that are convenient?

    How to stop losing fish around structure

    In that situation fishing so close to the structure, I would use normal hooks and the instant you strike and pin the fish start pulling/ winding to get the fish away from danger. Don’t wait until the fish starts pulling or flapping around before you do anything.

    What is this bar on my new boat???

    Looking at the spacing of the holes, I don’t think it was factory fitted. A past owner has added their own modification. You would have to question whether it does anything useful on that boat. Take it for a test and decide for yourself if you want it on there. Just curious, is there a matching one on the opposite side?

    Dangerous casting practice

    I hardly ever fish land based but whenever I go to have a look I see this practice happening a lot. Casters having no care at all about what is behind them on a packed out wharf. Kids walking around. I call it common sense to check behind you before casting. Especially when it is crowded or people around. I haven’t witnessed any accidents, but judging from what I see people doing I reckon it must happen. Scary to think about what can happen.

    Best mono for trout fishing

    You can try a spinnng flouro like Vanish. No leader, just straight through. I don’t like clips myself. Just tie each time.

    Internet ruins the fishery

    That’s the argument everyone says but it does make a big difference mate. When someone writes something like “the big 1m plus kings are on right now at so and so with everyone getting some the last few weeks” And a picture to back it up. You can bet traffic there will increase big time in the following days/ weeks.

    What's your preferred lure type??

    Same for me. They all have their time and place depending on what I am doing. I like using all lures.

    Trolling for Kings

    I’ve never heard of or seen bronze trebles. They sound worthwhile. Why do you get better hook ups and match the hatch with them? How is the strength and bend resistance?
