    38cm Trev on an unbaited setup... Surely that's a raider record! As always, nice work mate. I wonder what would happen to the gazebo and the guys underneath if the wind picked up? :/

    Need Some Help - What are we doing wrong?

    A good place to start is your terminal tackle.... Go lighter, and try to ensure your hook is complete covered by your bait. Good quality monofilament leader in less than 10lb is a great start. Bait wise try and avoid servo prawns and go for freshly caught bait or tackle store stuff. It's very unlikely to hit a wharf on Sydney harbour and go home empty handed if you fish sunrise or sunset. Usually favouring Tide changes... Keep at it and good luck!

    Handy lists for boating safety RMS

    Thanks for sharing Donna! Boating safety is a much welcomed discussion topic! Hmm Sigma, I would say it might of been that particular officers interpretation of the requirements rather than the exact RMS definition... A chart plotter is defined in multiple online sources as: "A device used in marine navigation that integrates GPS data with an electronic navigational chart (ENC)" which IMHO clearly identifies it as a form of electronic map. Also, For those of us who don't have a GPS combo, the RMS have maps on their site to download or order in waterproof paper here:

    Micro Jigging Reel

    Recurve any luck on the setup yet? I had a similar desire on a slightly smaller budget...One of our fellow members Chao, gave me a little advice on an entry level setup and have just acquired a Gomoku black paired with a Spheros5000SW... Looking forward to giving it a belting on the weekend!

    Fisherman survives capsize off Illawarra coast

    Again, I'm fairly green when it comes to this as I'm learning offshore/Outside boating, but aren't they water activated for that very reason?

    Fisherman survives capsize off Illawarra coast

    Would I be wrong in saying that he should of had an Epirb if he was fishing outside? Ditto Cargo05 in saying lifejackets are a must in smaller boats. Very lucky to be going home to his family, it could have very easily been a different outcome.

    Slide Baiting For Kings and Jews

    Certain Slide bait rigs are designed to prevent swim-back, provided you setup your sinker leader to be lighter than your main leader, you will at worst, loose your lead. Good luck mate.
