    Battery for Elect motor

    Hi there thanks to above members I dont have to elaborate in detail of information. I used to have 40pound motor and 100ah battery and combination hobie mirage drive, 15km range with varying speeds. Going home was tough with this dead weight motor15kg and battery 16kg drained. So I upgraded with Bixpy jet weight about 1.2kg motor and 404 watt lithium battery. Total weight about 7kg with motor adapter and battery. Range and speed depends on your kayak hull design. I have 3 lithium batteries which is enough to cover a full day. Expensive but vary quite and light. Recently I have sent these motors to Bixpy USA for warranty repairs. Mean while I have been looking into 2 stroke petrol engine jet These motors are used in Brazil kayak fishers and there are not cheap (A$700 with freight) to import from Brazil but I found the manufacturer supplier can supply me with a sample cost A$200 approx plus freight and tax. Going to install into mounting of mirage drive location. No more expensive battery to replace and charge. Just carry enough fuel no worries except the noise and fume. Anyone interested in these motor private message me. Still waiting for payment details from China supplier.

    Illawong Bay

    Hi mate. I was on a kayak out in bay 6km. Came by illawong bay the sounder picked up a lot of fish even hairtails. People were casting at wrong spots. I told them what depth and how far. There is fish there. Use fresh bait hawkesbury prawn and pillhards. Last night it was so windy could not fish there. I caught breams when it was noisy there, or maybe I got lucky. There are sensitive fish. Good luck. Cheers

    Hairtail season in Cowan creek

    I posted if anyone would join me for a session of Hairtail and kindly members replied with good feedbacks and information. The day started well, did all my home chores and family matters. Arrived at Akuna bay set for launch and testing all my electrical but trolling motor would not start wasted 1 hour. Peddled out to Jb took me 75mins. So many boats. Disappointed a party boat anchored at my hot spot. Dozen drunk men screaming, swearing and music so loud you hear them a mile away. Anchored 100m away from them and these guys were so abusive. It annoyed me crazy but there were having fun. Sounder showed lots of fish the whole time I was there and I think it was hairtails. Cast my first rod and preparing 2nd rod the float disappeared fish on. Dropped and missed many hairies but had I good time out there caught 5 total and a yellowtail. Tide changed around 9.30pm and bites gone off. Tides is going out but sounder showed lots of hairtails but there have gone deeper water from 5 to 6m to new depth 9 to 10m. Not a single bit for half an hour. My mobile rings strangely normally dont get a single here. My daughter calls and says are you ok and replied why? Its blowing so hard at home be careful out there. I take her advice and started packing up. It was very calm night no wind in Jb, as soon as anchor is up wind picked up getting choppy. Struggled from shark rock point to Cottage point open waters. In the middle of bay got blown away, for 20mins top speed 0.75km/h Got to Illawong wind was behind me and pushing 4km/h no paddle no peddling great. Total voyage time 120mins. A good exercise and good feed catch night. Loved it.

    Hairtail season in Cowan creek

    I launch from akuna bay marina boat ramp. Nice car park and well lighted and safe area and free carpark as long as your have national park ticket. No evidence of car window breakages. I think there is security there. Bobbin head appletree has boat ramp but not sure leaving in the carpark I've seen alot of window breakages. Use akuna bay its 2km closer to Jerusalem bay. But a bit of drive depending where you live. Cheers
