  1. He was a very nice bloke and seemed to be happy that I was wearing a life jacket and I could answer all of his questions about when everything expired. I'd recently found a sticker where you could write on the dates that everything expires and it was beside my two EPIRBS that he could see. Where do you get this sticker, I think this is great

    GPS

    I don't think the RAAF was pinching your fishing spots or checking on your catch. I live at Richmond NSW and Hercules fly over my place every day about 600 ft. I hunt so I check my GPS (3 in total) regularly so that I have them working, this is done by putting them on the table in the backyard and leaving them for the day this way I check that they are recording the same position, planes fly over all day however they are not like Mascot with the jets. Believe it they are quite.
  3. I buy the normal prawning nets and replace them with a longer net that I buy at Toukley. You remove the pop rivets or cut just below the crimp thread the net onto the aluminium frame and put the two ends into the handle you flatten the handle end so the two pieces go in and pop rivet it. I then put insulation tape around so there are sharp points. On the end of the net I thread a 3mm cord with a cord clamp (can't think of the name) so when you have your prawns in the bottom you undo the clamp and they fall into your bucket remember to do the cord up again, this is the easiest way I found to get you prawns out. The prawning gurus at The Entrance showed all of this they are great bunch.
  4. Thanks was correct with the old info.
  5. Would love to have the email they send you and will laminate it when I go. Thanks to all for the replies.
  6. Sea Ranger that is the piece I was looking for and had read. I agree the DPI sight is hard to read think I will be right through the week. Thanks to all the replies Norm
  7. Rebel I read it too and cannot find Berowra Creek. Tried to ring DFI fisheries and can only leave messages.
  8. Please tell me if I have it correct. You can trap crabs with traps or witches hats in the Berowra Creek during the week and not of a weekend. I launch my boat at Berowra and only fish during the week so would like to try the traps. Hoping during the week there is less chance of people stealing them. Thanks Norm
  9. I go Moruya camping at the Headland near the airport quite a lot and will be down there probably from the 22nd Jan if the wife does not have to go to the Doctors . I am attending a wedding in Rutherglen Vic and travelling back up the coast and Moruya is a favourite spot the Doctors appointment will determine if I stay or come straight back home. I also go to Durras Lakes south as well, Durras Lakes is good for fishing and prawning however the lake I think is not open to the sea at present, was down there about 4 months ago it was locked off by sand. A seal had got in there and played havoc with the fish so I did not get anything. Durras Lakes unlike The Entrance is shallow at the sea part however further up the lake it get the about 7 metres . Go on YouTube and see North Durras Lake camping he has video on the lake which quite good. Hope this helps Norm
  10. I lived at The Entrance from 1948 to 1956 as young boy and got Pelican Itch can't remember how we got relief, when I go prawning up there now I wear waders don't care how hot they are it better than Pelican Itch.
  11. On the Nth side of The Entrance there is a picnic area with car parking and a wharf for you to fish off.
  12. thanks I have put them in a plastic container and will get a good one that clip locks.
