    Baitrunner/Liveliner/Baitfeeder Options?

    Hey mate, I would stay away from the Shimano D series. I have 2 mates that own several of these and all they have had is constant problems. Shimano stopped making these about 18months back, so if you purchase one and have problems your in for a lot of grief finding replacement parts! Keep in mind these guys wash there gear thoroughly after every fish weekly, and have them serviced every 3-6months, like I do with mine. IFFFF you can find a BTR B series,,, BUY IT! They are bullet proof. Between myself and my brother, we have 7 shimano 4500 btr's, 3 still brand new in the box, we bought the last of the stocks in Sydney when they stopped making them 5 years ago..... The other 4 we use weekly, and after nearly 10 years are going strong! For your budget of $200, Id look at the Fin Nor, curious to try them myself. My latest purchase was a Shimano Thunnus BTR, abit more expense $270 approx., its not as loud in bait runner mode as the B series of the Shimano' BTRS, but its a lot lighter for sure! But I'd say unless you want to up your budget to $270 odd, consider a Fin Nor. The penn live liner's are quite heavy and under decent drag feel sticky Best of luck in your purchase mate Dan

    Kiwi Dan, where have you been mate? Neither Greg or i have seen you out on middle harbour in years? Still got my number, flick me a sms or gimme a buzz,,, Greg's still donking a lot of kings at in the harbour, but the ratio is down to 5 rats for every good legal at 70cm+ Dan

    Sussex Inlet / St Georges Basin

    You want to launch really really bloody early down their in summer, ie if the sun is up at 4.15am, be launching at 3am, no latter,,,, or you might as well be parked on the M5 in peak hour, in Sydney. We usually launch at 2.30am to avoid the rat race of people launching the "bare' minimum of 1hr before sunrise to get their live bait. Usually we have a great laugh watching them gun it out of the bait grounds after getting their livies whilst we have already had our livies down for 30-45mins. Dan

    Murrays boat ramp in Jervis Bay is great for smaller boats up to say 5.5metres. Anything bigger and I reckon you will have ALOT of problems retrieving, especially at low tide! Dan

    Seagulls in the dark

    My brother Greg quite often scares a lot of gulls resting on the water when he goes out Saturday night at 10pm chasing squid for the following day's fishing,,, so I wouldn't waste my time having a fish where they are sitting on the water. Dan

    Hows the Harbour or Botany bay fishing? 19/05/2018

    My brother was out yesterday in Sydney Harbour. He managed 8 rats & 1 legal at 68cm. Dan

    Baitrunner Vs Other reels

    I went off the shimano btr's after they introduced the newer model after the B's. I think they are called the LC's, and OC's. I don't own a LC however a few mates do and all they have had is constant problems, to the point that they have set aside these rod and reel combo's for "newbies" on there boats. I cant fault my thunnus's, have landed kingys to 78cm on them, and jews to 80cm. With the right rod they are a much more versatile than the shimano BTR B's, and lighter. I have mine on a gomoku PE1-3 with 20lb braid,, I love the combo, can flick squid jigs, bottom bounce for flathead, and can chase small jews and kings. Dan

    Baitrunner Vs Other reels

    Great reels for chasing jews. I have two 4500b's, my brother has five 4500b's (3 of which are brand new in their boxes still), and I also have a couple of 4000's thunnus's Dan

    Jervis Bay Kings as well

    Hi The Rev, myself & my brother are heading down there Friday week for 8 days. Just wondering if the kings are at Point Perp? Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Dan

    Dollies at the FAD

    Hey mate, I found plenty of traps out there when I last went wide 2-3 weeks ago. But they were a reasonable way out, with most only being a couple of Km's inside the shelf. Dan Speaking to a mate who fished them the other week, they are still there and holding good size (90cm+) dollies tho the current was pushing hard south and only the last of the 3 buoys on the tag rope was visible.

    Middle harbour

    Hey Abs, Tunks Park along with most of the ramps in Sydney is a #@$%fight on the weekend especially when its a hot day with good weather,,, a word of advice, we launch out of Tunks,, my brother puts his boat in a 10-11pm the night before chasing squid, and picks me up at 330-4am, if I were you launching solo, launch that extra hour earlier around 430am or just before, especially with daylight savings. As come 5am when we have live baits down you cant count the amount of boats flooring it out of the ramps from both Tunks park, and Roseville. Dan

    Why cannot find any bait fish and squid?

    Bait will always hold near, or close to structure for protection. Armpits, usually baitfish like to feed on dawn or dusk to avoid being eaten by predators during daylight hours or at night when the toothies come out. So at night it will be nearly impossible to spot baitfish. My advice try the hour before and after sunset/sunrise for baitfish, i.e. yakka's, slimies, gar's. As for squid, good luck,, they may be there, they may not be, but they might only switch on for a hour to feed, then shut down. I have squidded at Balmoral 100's if not 1000's of times for the last 20 years for countless hours for not even a single grab, or a pulled tentacle. Move around as others have mentioned, but don't be surprised if they come on the chew after you leave,,,, this is the worst!!!!! Dan
