    Electric motor

    G'day Hansard. Yes, they will be in the way. There was a previous post on here where the same problem was presented. I think they had the rail altered and the mounting plate installed for the new electric motor. You should be able to find it by using the search facility. Good luck, bn

    Oh my cod

    Hey, Sam good to see you have a wish list too and that Murray Cod is on that list. If you ever want to catch one, I can put you on to some...although there's travel involved. They are Freshwater fish and obviously, there are better tasting fish in the saltwater environment. The last 2 legal ones which I caught (simultaneously) came home with me. I cleaned, filleted and cut them into chunks then took them to the local fish and chip shop where my mate battered and deep fried them. Bought some chips and 10 people of all ages really enjoyed the feast. Cheers, bn

    Central Coast Kayak Fishing

    Thanks for the report and video Sam. Very professional as always. What was the music clip? It's a bit repetitive, yet catchy and upbeat, which made it highly suited to the video clip. Cheers, bn

    Friday August 10th - Sydney Outside

    Envy personified Jim. Here I am on a Saturday morning wondering if it's worth going out to get a few Carp! Good report and well done finding them and securing a few decent feeds. bn

    Easy FG knot video

    What size lines are you using it with connico and how many wraps? I use 20 wraps on 30 lb braid /30 lb leader. Cheers, bn

    I agree that it's great when you need a low profile knot that assists casting with a baitcaster all day long. I am surprised that you use it on 3lb leader material, but with the additional wraps to distribute the "biting in effect" of the braid, it obviously works. Thanks for your input mate, we learn every day. bn

    Port Stephens- Brut snapper!

    Can't get any joy myself from actually fishing, at present. So it is great to read and see pics of you guys getting among them. Some very nice Snapper there guys and great job getting out there and back before the crappy weather hit. Top job, bn

    Only a few options really IMO. Best to least... 5 turn Surgeons Loop (used by Stewy) Alberto Knot Double Uni They all have good and bad points. I seldom use light leader material, but have used all of these in the past. bn

    It's not a good option with a thin leader material. I use 30lb braid and leader. I wouldn't use it with less than say 15lb leader because the braid bites into the leader material. bn MY OPINION.
