  1. Fab1, don't forget he's pumping this fish from a kayak! It's much harder work compared to a fisherman standing upright in a boat or from a rock ledge. Think about the lack of leverage. I think he's done a bloody good job with no motor to assist him in pulling away from that rusted heap!
  2. Well done iamthecowgodmoo! Never had luck at the spit.. I hear you have to keep it quite deep there. How was the current and did you need any specific rig to keep the jigs deep?
  3. Any particular reason why they aren't they hitting the hardbodies Dave?
  4. So is your line class ultimately determined by the lowest breaking piece of line in the rig? So you could have 25kg braid mainline + 5kg pretest mono breakaway + 20kg fluorocarbon shock leader, and this would be considered 5kg line class?
  5. That's really interesting. Is it legal to double up the line eg. using a bimini twist?
  6. Hi Berleyguts, Can you explain a bit more? What do you mean by a breakaway line? Do you have braid mainline then mono them fluoro?
  7. Hi Mainframejames, What size in the fastech do you use for lures up to say 110mm? I assume slightly bigger is better than too small. Bigger would ensure enough "loop" for the lure to swim properly? Cheers, Undy

    Thanks for the report Abs. Good on you for going out on your own and better luck with the fishing next time.

    Narooma Spots

    Hi JonD, This is a timely post as I'm also headed down for a spot of camping at Surfbeach holiday park so I may run into jonnyboy trying out the spots you've mentioned. Is it worth spinning a lure or soaking a pilly at the beach directly in front of the Surfbeach holiday park? If I bring my yak along can you point me to any spots to try in the inlet or on the ocean side? Would be fun to land one of the stonker bream from your $10 rod challenge. Or maybe get a feed of squid and chase a king in the inlet. Any of your local knowledge would be appreciated! Cheers, undy
  11. Great report drc. I hate loading up that heavy kayak! You seem to have a good solution. What sort of loader you are using?
  12. Are you saying split ring means loop knot is not required
  13. Not many responses.. maybe it would be be better in Saltwater Lures section Donna?
  14. Hi Raiders, This probably sounds like a dumb question, but here goes.. When MUST you use a split ring? I am referring to split rings which are attached to hardbodies/surface lures/vibes/blades/poppers/metals for the purpose of connecting to your line. Some lures come new in the box with split rings and some don't. I've heard different theories like: - Never tie a knot directly to a split ring - Can tie a knot direct to a split ring but don't use a loop knot - You can use snaps to connect to split rings because split rings already behave like a loop knot - Removing the split ring from a lure will impact the action severely - Adding a split ring will improve action - Etc, etc To me split rings are just another added pain to deal with. Another possible point of failure and they are expensive and fiddly to deal with! In the interest of keeping things simple, I was considering removing them altogether from my lures (of course they are still necessary to connect trebles to the lure!). I'm interested in your thoughts and opinions on this topic.. How do you generally connect your main line/leader to hardbody lures? Cheers, Undy
