    Forgot to ask about this girl too

    Few common names there Tash. I call it a Ling, I think others call it a Beardie. Museum calls it a Largetooth Beardie, not often big enough to eat. Nice white flesh. "Lotella rhacina." Have a good time up North you two.

    Is this a luderick? (Black Drummer/Rock Blackfish)

    Good to see you made it back after your Northern trip Tash and still doing a bit of fishing. As every one has said B.D. and one of my favourite eating fish. Fillet, skin, cut into pieces and deep fried, bloody yum.

    Trolling the tropics

    The RMG Scorpions are pretty good and a tad cheaper I think. 125mm-150mm size. Australian made as well. 30cm of wire first.

    E-Tec or 4 Stroke Motor

    Just my observation, I spend a bit of time each year in the Kimberleys and have done that for the last say 15years. Yammys by far are the most popular, on both commercially and recreational boats. Maybe theres no ETEC dealers or others up that way. The Yammys I've personally had dealings with are in a commercial operation, constantly in and out of gear, plus fishing creeks with big tidal changes hitting the more occasional rock than the boss is not keen about 😬 (they damage quite a few props each season) sucking up a fair share of mud and sand as well over the 7 months and only flushed only at the end of the season before storage, though maintenance is kept up. They have preformed flawlessly in a bloody hard environment. Funny you should say that Jon, the only boat I've had dealings with that had Suzuki's on and that was in Sydney, again a Commercial boat had big twin motors and they have had problems with the gear boxes blowing up. Maybe thats just a just coincidence. As for media personalities, they will use a motor that they are sponsored with. Thats their job, plus Rods, reels, tackle etc. As for Groote, I thought the boats that were used were also a sponsored boat and were not that practical. And I could be wrong. Anyway thats my observations.

    Windy roach, zander and pike

    Hi Jani, I see you are experiencing a heatwave over there. One season you fish through Ice then Reindeers are coming to the beach to cool off.
  10. Great report Dave and seeing that Juvenile Queensland grouper would have been a highlight. Good stuff mate.

    Old JArvis Walker rods and Alvey Reels

    One of the Rods is a Jarvis Bidgee, not Bidge and I think its named after a place "The Bidgee". BigNeil names that area occasionally. Certainly some great memories and history you have there JeffB
  15. First one I'll guess, Longfin Bigeye Cookeolus japonicus Second one, Long fin Perch Caprodon longimanus
