  1. I just sold a few on gumtree. few weeks ago. they come up on there quite often.
  2. Good to have one anyway. as you might not intend to go 2 nm offshore but could easily end up out there with flat batteries, failed radio equipment, etc. better to be safe than sorry.
  3. I Agree with Rick, use clear mono, thinnest diameter you can get away with. catchrate should improve imencly!
  4. Add these to the list =Spiked by a hawksburry catfish n crapped on by a pelican! ?
  5. Dunno, but it likes your bait. did it put up a good fight? ?
  6. Good idea even for old boaties to brush up .
  7. Hey Rick, You might find it was the angle of the dangle? ive used that excuse before, lol
  8. Yum, fish n chips fer dinner,?
  9. It would be dangerous driving while on these kind of drugs wouldn't it? especially after a few beers. also the police might arrest anyone if a drug test came back positive? your better being seasick on a fishing trip than traveling to or from the fishing charter and running off the road into a tree or a car full of kids and a family.or being arrested for drug test fail.
  11. Might be the go to put some garlic and holy water in the bricks. ? zombies might be the ones we need to worry about if kim Jong un (bubblehead) keeps going, ?
  12. Maybe a good thing it bit through the line! those things like jumping! be a nightmare if one jumped in the boat.
  13. 1 of those mother in law fish isn't it??
  14. Awsome video, better than some of the TV doco ones. was a great to watch.
  15. Ive found most of my estuary fish are caught near the shore or rocks, or a reef structure or bridge pilots etc, that's where the cover is. Flathead and flounder are flat for a reason. So they can hunt in shallow water. Over 20 years ago i was fishing near the rip bridge one night north east side near the first jetty. and was casting in every direction had a few rigs out, and a fellow on the shore was reeling in a bait, it got smashed by a huge flathead near his feet about 2 foot from shore. Getting off topic= later that night a small tinny with an 70 year old fellow and his son went to anchor in the middle of the rip east of the bridge. as soon as their anchor hit bottom the force of the water pulled the nose of their boat under. i had to pull anchor reel lines in and motor over to save the old guy. i jumped over the side and lifted the old guy while a mate in the boat heaved him in. just put that in coz I remembered them fishing in the middle of deep No mans land. anyway getting back to it, thats when I learnt that a lot of fish hunt near the shore. goes to figure that baitfish stick close to shore for cover and that's when predators get in close to hunt them. So when in a boat I cast towards the shore or rocks n bridge pilots etc, as the deep water is usually void of fish. just my opinion though!
  16. Looks like the point of a mild steel screw pushing through the outside gel coat from inside! looks like someone's screwed a screw into the floors inside the boat and the screw was too long, and its rusting. put a small strong magnet on it, bet you it sticks.
  17. Yeah totally agree, what was the point! stressed the fish out, hurt it. what a tosser.
  18. Hahahahaha, ? Did the misses get a phone call to bring money for bail? lol?
  19. Good stuff Rick. should have confiscated their licences n craft as well.

  21. There was a middle aged guy who bought a brand new Mercedes convertible SLK. He took off down the road, flooring it up to 80 mph and enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left on his head. 'This is great,' he thought and floored it some more.He looked in his rearview mirror and there was a Florida Highway Patrol Trooper behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blasting. 'I can get away from him with no problem' thought the man and he floored it some more and flew down the road at over 100 mph.Then he thought, 'What am I doing? I'm too old for this kind of thing' and pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the State Trooper to catch up with him.The Trooper pulled in behind the Mercedes and walked up to the man.'Sir,' he said, looking at his watch. 'My shift ends in 30 minutes and today is Friday the 13th. If you can give me a reason why you were speeding; that I've never heard before, I'll let you go.'The man looked back at the Trooper and said, 'Last week my wife ran off with a State Trooper, and I thought you were bringing her back.'The State Trooper said, 'Have a nice day.
  22. Wow the things people did in the old days for a fish! ?
  23. Somone will get killed 1 day and then the laws will be reviewed. a speeding boat is a deadly weapon in the hands of an idiot.
