    How Do You Read Swells And Waves?

    Taken from the BOM site. * Sea waves: waves generated by the wind blowing at the time, and in the recent past, in the area of observation. * Swell waves: waves which have travelled into the area of observation after having been generated by previous winds in other areas. These waves may travel thousands of kilometres from their origin before dying away. There may be swell present even if the wind is calm and there are no 'sea' waves. * Wave period: the average time interval between passages of successive crests (or troughs) of waves. * Wave Height: Generally taken as the height difference between the wave crest and the preceding trough. * Wave Length: The mean horizontal distance between successive crests (or troughs) of a wave pattern.

    First Marlin Of Season For Nic-nat

    Well done on the first for the season.. I would call it for a Black. It is a bit hard to tell from the pic but it looks like the second dorsal fin is in front of the anal fin, a feature only found on Blacks..

    Does Livies Need To Be Far Out

    Run a small cable tie 1.5mm-2mm wide through the eye sockets and fasten that down on your hook. Problem solved

    115hp 2 Stroke Johnson 2004 Rectifier

    Unlucky? On the rectifier side of things.... I doubt it. Who is selling you and installing these rectifiers at $450 a pop? Does he need a business partner

    Reels From The Usa

    I just Purchased 4 Tiagra 16 reels from the states for AU$493.00 each Before I placed the order I went to my tackle guy who really looks after us and gave him the option to even get close to the US price as I would be happy to pay a bit more to keep the money here.Unfortunately he could not get any where near it as his buy price from the importer is AU$730.00 I will still buy the line and rods from him though as he is a good guy.

    Browns Mountain

    "15. No criticism of legal catches and/or inappropriate imposing of C&R views in fishing reports" With respect Ross, One fishermans once in a life time catch is not going to affect the world Mako population. The fish was filleted and shared amongst the crew from what I saw. Then the carcass was disposed of at sea. Nothing illegal or immoral there. Robbie.

    When Will This Wing End

    September is Sydney's windiest time of the year according to the BOM The Nor Easters in summer do affect fishing/boating a bit more though as they are fairly consistent.

    Boys Reel In $100,000 On Fishing Trip

    Mik, The cops can hold it for 12 or 24 months I can't remember which but after that it goes back to the person that handed it in..

    Dsc On Vhf Radio

    If it is set up properly yes it is. The major benefit of Digital Select Calling is that your location is transmitted when a distress call is made. That in it's self has to be enough reason to use it?

    Commercial Fishing Hawks'bury?

    Interesting reading Billfisher, Looking at those figures the rec fishos seem to be taking their share of the biomass but look at where the large numbers are for the "Pros" Mostly lower down the food chain, now that can't be a good thing?

    Something Else You Don't See Every Day

    Land based hey............ Enough said! Seriously though, our boat slipped its mooring during a storm in 2003. It was moored at Rodd point and found two days later in Berry bay, lucky for us with out a scratch on it.

    Something Else You Don't See Every Day

    Does any one know the full story? Did it slip a mooring? Was it stolen? Did the cops or coasties find it and drop the anchor to hold it as the tide ran back up while they tried to notify the owner?
