    New Boat

    Hi Everybody, Thank you all. The boat wasn't the problem, it was deciding on the motor. The input was great. Cheers.

    New Boat

    Hi All, I would like to thank you all for your input, in helping to buy a new motor. The advice was really great and appreciated. I bought a new Stacer 449 Seamaster with a 60hp 4 stroke yamaha. So far so good .Different to my old Haines 16C. In finishing I would just like to say, I didn't realise my previous post would get out of hand, but the advice was good. Donna, in one of your previous posts you commented, people come to Fishraider for information and that is what I did. I had no knowledge of the current outboard motors of today, but I do know thanks to the help of the people on this Forum. Thanks again. Cheers.

    E-Tec or 4 Stroke Motor

    I didn't mean to start World War Three, but I appreciate your input and thank you. The last boat I had was a Haines Hunter 16C with an old 90hp Johnson. Great boat but as I get older I need something I can handle on my own. This will be my first tinny. Cheers.

    Daiwa Gear

    Hi All, I go to fishing auctions. check out Gumtree and Ebay for fishing gear and I can't believe the amount of Daiwa gear for sale. I have one Daiwa rod but I have been told by several people the their after sales and warranty service is terrible. Is this true ?

    E-Tec or 4 Stroke Motor

    Hi All, I am looking at buying a new boat. Probably a 4.6 metre Stacer or Quintrex runabout. I have always bought oil mix motors, but now I just don't know. The motor will be a 60 hp. I am in two minds at what to buy E-Tec or 4 Stroke.. Any suggestions. Cheers.

    New Reel

    Hi, I received 5% discount on the reel. I told I was a Fishraider member. I did the same thing again this week ,Dinga gave me the best price. This is the best time of the year to buy fishing gear. Cheers.

    New Rod

    HI, I chase anything that lands on the hook. I think I will try the Lethal 100 for starters. I have a 10ft Abu Garcia Veritas 3.0 with a Lethal 80 on it and it casts a country mile. The Demon weighs nothing so the 100 should be ok. Thanks for the advice every one. Cheers.

    New Rod

    Hi, The Ultegra 14000 weighs half a kilo. Great reel for beach fishing. Check it out on UTube.

    New Rod

    Hi Everybody, I just bought a Dawia demon blood 962mh 9'6" rod. They are on special this weekend. I am going to use it for lures only off the beach. I have four reels to choose from. Fin-nor Lethal 100 Shimano c14 6000 Thunnus. Shimano c14 Ultegra 14000 Pflueger 080sm salt ( bit heavy). All new reels, so I won't be buying anymore at the moment. Any suggestions which one will I use. I am not into braid I only use mono line. I am from the old school. Cheers.

    New into Lure Fishing.

    Thank you everybody. I will it give a go. So much different to putting bait on a hook.
  14. Hi, This might be a stupid question, but how do tie a line to lures. I am using soft plastics and metals. I have been told to tie the leader straight on to the lure. Shimano says use a small swivel and a split ring. Can I use a coastlock with a swivel ? Or do I use a loop with a knot in it Do I put a split ring on all the lures. Some lures have them and some don't. Your help would be appreciated
