    Quick Calamari Jig

    are they still around at night? i've been trying at night and having not much success You been trying off Wallies Wharf, Bundeena Wharf or South Cronulla Point? I use 20-40pound leader to get myself out of snags as I found the squid unlike fish are not scared of by the leader size. From shore at night I use a 1-1.5g jig with a small glow stick attached to the leader about a metre or so away. When it gets real hard I dip the jig in tuna oil Sent from my HTC One X using Tapatalk 2

    Garry you still need to show me some spots in Botany Bay as I heard there is more to fishing than just squidding. Sent from my HTC One X using Tapatalk 2

    Quick Calamari Jig

    Bate Bay just outside the Port Hacking, there is plenty of little reefs and weedy areas that always clean up just make sure there is weed. Sent from my HTC One X using Tapatalk 2

    Quick Calamari Jig

    Yeah mate it was from a small tinnie (4m). Dark coloured jigs (brown/green) worked well whilst the coloured jigs struggled hard. Early morning from about 6-9am normally works best as they seem to really die off as the sun comes out. There were plenty out as we were seeing 2-3 other squid coming up with our catch.

    Quick Calamari Jig

    Went for a quick jig just outside Bate Bay as I haven't been fishing for a while. Got a decent catch in about an hr or two, though no big ones like I use to get. Tried for some winter flatties but every cast my gear turned into Houdini and went disappear from those awesome Jackets that I hope stay around for ever. 600ml Drink Bottle for size comparison.

    Second Hand Outboard Advice

    Assuming by pinhead leak that i would not be able to see the water coming from the spark plug as it is too minor.

    Boat Advice

    Hi Guys I have been looking at boats for a little while and came across this today and it seems a bit cheap which is making me think it might be something really wrong with it. Can i get an opinion of some more experienced guys if you have time. Boat Link Thanks Vandal P.S Can you not post online shop links on here? Quintrex 490 Freedom Sports (the one on the slipway)

    Boat Trailers?

    Does anyone know if the trailer was made before the 750kg rule came out, does it still need brakes attached or is it only for trailer made after the rule was enforced. 1 in 5 is about right LOL, I am guessing the boat is under 750kg when sold (no petrol, esky or fishing gear).

    Boat Trailers?

    Thanks for the info. Just I have emailed a few people in regards to their 4.75-5m boats and they either have no idea what trailer brakes are or they don't have them. Surely combined weight is over 750kg how were they able to be sold like that? There must be heaps of people driving around with trailers over 750 with no brakes.

    Boat Trailers?

    Hey Guys Haven't been on the forum for about 2 years cause i sold my boat, now i am missing it so want to purchase another one. Though something i never heard before was about this 750kg limit then brakes are needed no matter what vehicle you have. If this is true how come every boat i am looking at that is has to be over 750kg does not have brakes on the trailer? Thanks Vandal
