    Fishing with all this rain

    Brisbane water has been a bit slow lately with all that algae around. I'm boat based usually. Maybe we can meet up for a trip. I'm better off shore for flathead than I am inside though 😉

    Lake mac

    I popped outside, big swells and not much wind. I got my flatty's and kept breakfast down so a win all around. Also, got my first shovelnose. Hard work from 55 metres, but it patiently lay there while I got the hook out and back it went!

    The creek is pretty muddy atm because of all the rain. Maybe the Entrance will fire up again.

    Boat Fuel Discussion - What Do You Use and Why?

    I had been using 95, and the main reason for this is that the servo where I fill up. The lane that I chose i has E10, 95 or 98, but this lane is the easiest to get the boat in and out of and the filler cap is on that side. Yesterday, I just took down jerry can and filled that up with 91. I always carry a jerry can on board, and when I am topping up the tank, I like to use the jerry can first so I'm not carting around older fuel for too long. I've I don't use it for a whle, it goes in to the lawn mower.

    Anyone know this hardbody?

    Its not a deep driver. I was told that the less expensive lures have the square bibs. It looks like there are a couple of Yo Zori in there and a rapala too

    Personal Experiences with Outboard - USE TEMPLATE PLEASE

    BRAND: Evinrude HP (model): 90HP ETEC E90DSLISF (Three cylinder 1.3 litre) YEAR: 2009 BOAT DATA (length, weight): 4.98 Approx 800KG Mid 80's FG YOUR SERVICE INTERVAL: 3 years or 300 hours FUEL: 91 or 94 XD100 Two stroke Oil (Sounds like I'll be only using 91 based on above comments) HOW LONG HAVE YOU USED THE OUTBOARD (hours on motor): It has 900 hours on it, I guess i had around 600 when I got it TYPICAL BOATING USE (boating, skiing, fishing etc): Fishing, occasional boating OTHER COMMENTS: Has been a good engine for me. It uses around 25 litres when I head out to the flathead grounds. I don't find the burden of adding the ETEC oil too much. It occasionally won't run faster than an idle, so the fix it to turn it off and then restart it and it it fine for the rest of the day. At WOT i'm doing around 60km/hr and 5500 RPM. It has a four blade stainless prop. I don't notice the two stroke aroma very much. Its pretty quiet too. Flushed after every use. Happy with the dealer that I use in Cowan.

    Lowrance elite ti9

    Thanks @kingie chaser I suspect you are correct, but I was reasonably happy for a first guess. Do people wash the sounder after use? Mine is pretty dirty now.

    Lowrance elite ti9

    Battery Flat Again! Any Ideas?

    You got a jump starter? I picked up a small one that will startup the diesel that I tow my boat with. I've only used it to start other peoples boats. This one is small enough to fit in your tackle bag. Your boat battery will charge up fine on the CTek
