  1. One of my dad's like lessons imparted to me: You will get lots of advice supposedly 'straight from the horses mouth'. Your job is to determine if that advice really is from the horses mouth or instead from the horses arse.
  2. Everything in moderation, including moderation.
  3. +1. You can never have a shaft that’s too long.
  4. Monday to Thursday I like the Bundaberg diet ginger beers - a 10 pack sets you back $15 from woolies ($1.50 per beer). Not too sweet and low sugar. Friday to Sunday I’m really enjoying the Zytho pale ales. $55 a slab of tinnies from BWS - they’re brewed in Goulburn and amazing.
  5. Agreed. They stop making them with wide gunwhales and unpainted hull which is a shame.
  6. Thanks Hucho. Here she is. Stacer. What’s your rig?
  7. Had a crack yesterday morning. Thought I’d run the gauntlet of rain and managed to stay dry. Fish weren’t really biting only caught a couple of 28cm snapper, a legal bream and undersized whiting. I marked the fish - a few big bait balls and some larger schoolies but didn’t have the right bait. Thanks for reading.
  8. never happened to me. good call but. soon as i hear a clap of thunder or a flash of lightning i call it quits.
  9. Had a minn kota 54lbs ipilot for 5 years, absolutely punished it and its still going. The record a track function is a pain in the neck but. When it comes time to upgrade i'm getting the XI5 cos it integrates with my lowrance sounder and I can uploand tracks directly on the sounder which the motorguide will follow. Or I might see if minn kota will do a deal with a hummingbird sounder as they integrate with minn kota then sell the lowrance second hand.
  10. A few suggestions * Fish Lips * White Swallow * In The Glass * Cockpit
  11. I wonder how it would be policed? If fisheries ask you to wind in a line and there’s a live squid with a hook in it who’s to say it wasn’t ‘freshly caught’? And keeping squid in a live bait tank doesn’t mean they won’t be eaten. The problem with clamping down too much is people will just say ‘stuff it I’m not following any of the rules’
  12. Started early morning brissy waters in between the rain last weekend. Flicked the vibes up around koolewong marina and scored a few flathead and a bream.
  13. This is an attempt by a micro party to get publicity. They want a page 3 article in major newspapers and a debate on q&a. The worst thing we can do is give it any oxygen. Quietly write to your local state member voicing your opposition to this amendment.
  14. I agree Noel record keeping would help everyone in the long run. Just bring a rule in, you have to download the Fisheries app, you have to log on before fishing and you have to log off and record your catch. Much easier to police and make size/bag limit decisions. With GPS tracking enabled that helps officers check as many people as possible for a given shift. DPI could see exactly how many mulloway were caught commercially and recreationally for the last 5 years, if it’s stable then all good - if trending down then it needs to be changed. You can also issue ‘shares’ of a particular speci
  15. I got out again today on my tinnie caught a mixed bag
  16. Headed out early this morning with the FIL and BIL - I got picked up in their new boat. We filled the live bait tank then poked our nose out the front of broken bay. Like a frightened turtle we quickly retreated back into the safety of the Hawkesbury River. We missed the tide change and fished Flint and Steel and Juno for three good sized tailor. Sorry no photos of the fish. A great trip and I look forward to more trips further offshore when conditions are better. The last time they caught five dollies.
  17. Can you get your hands on a kayak? Second hand you should be able to get one cheap. Then you can fish the deeper water and go for the bigger fish.
  18. Hi Steve, I'll leave you with this final thought: BPM Energy have no chance of winning this fight. They have wasted $25mil so far - they should quit before the losses pile up even further. Anyone investing with them will at the very least have a loss to offset against their tax return. We will get the entire east coast community in our corner. Fishing Clubs, Surf clubs, Bowling Clubs, sand castle building clubs you name it. This will be a single issue at the next state and federal election much like work choices were. The PM and Premier will come in and squash this (either current Li
  19. Fossil fuels are not the only way to power farms and homes, both here and in the developing world. There are many viable and renewal alternatives that can, not only can meet this need, help alleviate the many real problems the developing world face as a consequence of man made climate change: flood, fire and drought. For example, the East African drought of 2011 killed between 50,000 to 260,000 people. Battery storage and technology can enable this to be dispatchable as is the case in South Australia. The price continues to come down and its undeniably the future. No one is suggesting we
  20. @Steve-o I am going to put the emotive language and rude and insulting words to one side and acknowledge the valid point you do raise - we all do consume fossil fuels. Many Australians do earn a livelihood from oil, coal and gas exploration and production. We cant just suddenly take that from them. But we do need to progressively move away from that for the sake of future generations. We are in a climate emergency, no one can deny that the stats and anecdotes are overwhelming and irrefutable. Fortunately there are alternative sources of energy which I need not spell out here and as
  21. MP Zali Steggal (Warringah)opposes it so does Emma McBride member for Dobell (Wyong). if you live on the northern beaches you need lobby liberal state MP Rob Stokes - he has been silent on the issue. https://www.robstokes.com.au/contact-0
  22. Here is a statement from MP Lucy Wicks - federal member for Robertson (my local electorate). She will be opposing an extension of PEP 11. https://mailchi.mp/ba29b3f54dcb/update-on-pep-11?e=b1143ebd75 I will be writing to our state member as well - though she is in opposition.
