    Using Braid with Alvey reels

    Old news. Alvey does exist.

    Using Braid with Alvey reels

    Thanks for warning the new folk. I do agree with you in regards to beach fishing however Alvey is not just a beach or rock fishing -there are fishing methods when casting is not required. Rock fishing can be also dangerous, however can be fun and productive if done properly with safety precautions. Same about Alveys and braid. Just my opinion.

    Baitrunner/Liveliner/Baitfeeder Options?

    Shimano's baitrunners have the best reputation, particularly older B series. I would shop around and try to find D series for the price of OC series on sale and spend the rest of the budget for the rod. As for the trust to Rovex baitrunners - as far as I am aware it is an Australian brand which is also exported by JW to UK. I guess you might find some first hand feedback on UK local mud marlin forums/FB groups - if you are interested in it. Though I would not expect much as it is a low-cost reel with plenty of baitrunners parts.
  5. I find that most whitings caught close to weedy areas have "funny" taste.
  6. From the same website: Have Your Say Your comments are sought on the 25 sites comprising the park proposal, the management changes proposed at each site, and/or the benefits and costs to your activities, community or industry. You can have your say by completing the online submission form by 27 September 2018. The information you provide will inform the final marine park proposal to be considered by the NSW Government later in 2018. Existing management rules remain in place, and none of the proposals will be implemented until the NSW Government announces the outcome.

    Bream Rods with small butts

    I believe plenty of rod builders/ rod repair businesses can cut the rod butt and rebuild it to the required new shorter length. So, you are not limited to the limited models with shorter butt, however the rod mod will impact rod resale value.
  8. Well done mate! Winter kayaking requires more efforts than winter night fishing.

    Max Reel Size For Fishing With SP's?

    There cannot be total budget, there can be a starting budget. Rod, reel, braid, leaders with different rating, then jigs with several hook sizes and weights, soft plastic a few sizes in several colors, hardbodies, blades, poppers, soft vibes, scents, extra spools, another rod, reel... It never ends...

    Max Reel Size For Fishing With SP's?

    I would leave both rod and reel for bait fishing. Rod from that JW combo are fibreglass with solid tip - You would want something lighter with faster action for working soft plastic - e.g graphite or at least composite rod. I use a 2500 JW (about Shimano 3000 size equivalent) reel for most of my lure and bait land based estuary/light beach fishing (from whiting to small sharks bycatch). I would say JW 4000 size combo reel would be too heavy and large for light soft plastic, and too weak to fight a fish regularly on large soft plastic/lures.

    Allow Me To Introduce Myself

    That was the time when plenty of people still shared information about their fishing spots on fishing forums.
