  1. Just don't put out too much bread or breadcrumbs as a burley, otherwise they wont go in your trap
  2. They are quite aggressive towards the lure/plastics hey
  3. Don't forget to insure it for the trip home mate 😉

    NAV Lights

    I too would say its a bad earth somewhere.
  5. Fished there once many years ago but didn't actually see a fish. Certainly is a great looking river. According to the DPI website they stock the Shoalhaven (higher up than Braidwood) with Rainbow Trout and last release was 2018/19. Assume there could be Bass in there somewhere and I'd say definitely a Carp or 10 lurking too 😢

    Keys misplaced

    Never taken the keys out of the ignition of any of the boats I've owned for the past 40 years. That way I always know where the key is. I do have a spare key "hidden" on the boat just in case some jerk decides to steal the key. As you rightly said Fab will drive the boat away on dry land 😄

    Old days

    A fantastic thread for us old timers (and others obviously) noelm. Dont know why barber shops were places you could buy all that stuff, but I certainly remember it well. Maybe because there weren't many sports type shops and definitely no big chain type stores. I'm certainly no great fisherman, but i did start off as a young bloke in the early 60's catching poddy mullet in oyster bottles, pumping nippers and chasing worms (mostly unsuccessfully), fishing with cheap handlines off wharves and watching old timers to see how they did it. It taught me a lot and I'm still learning and enjoying it. In the old days you didnt have all the expensive toys and gimmicks and actually didnt need them. 1st boat was an old Pongrass, 60 hp Johnson with no power trim or tilt (it was a beast to manhandle up and down). We used to go outside regularly (Ulladulla, Moruya, Batemans Bay) in it, didnt have any sounders etc, no auxiliary motor and only used handlines.......but used to come back with a feed of fish every time. How times have changed hey.
  8. I understand that all the interest for the overseas market is in the roe, not the flesh! Apparently big money.
  9. Mate, this might be a long shot.....but try emailing Steve Williamson. Steve is one of the most respected and longest serving Fishing guides (Fly Fishing a speciality) in Australia. He is based in Jindabyne and even though he recently sold his tackle shop there, I know he used to periodically sell off a lot of his used fly fishing gear. Give him a try, it cant hurt! Email is Cheers Dave
  10. I switch off at the isolator, then if sitting for a while particularly in winter, put it on the trickle (float) charge every couple of weeks to keep it topped up.
  11. Definitely a juvenille rainbow trout...seen plenty with those markings!
  12. That is a great link Rich, thanks for sharing. I knew of some of these stocking locations, but many I didnt. Have to try out some new "old" haunts. cheers
  13. As has been noted, Fishraider will give you most of the info you need and as the membership is fairly widespread covers nearly everywhere, but there are some sites that I'm aware of that give you weekly reports including where and how they are catching them. If you're interested I can pm the details to you mate.
