    Interesting hook up.

    On Sunday afternoon I took my daughter and s.i.l. fishing on St Georges Basin. We soon found ourselves in a school of small red bream (actually juvenile snapper). The rig they were using was 2 hooks on droppers about 30cm apart with a sinker on the end of the line. Fish after fish came on board and was released, until this happened. We could hardly believe this.hmm Cant up load photos. However this bream had taken one hook and once on it took the second hook. So it had a hook on each side of its mouth. Must have been hungry

    Leak in plastic fuel tank

    One of my fuel tanks has a pin hole in it. Is it possible to seal this leak?

    Living at Sussex Inlet I am an avid luderick fisherman. At the moment there are schools of these fish everywhere, but they are not biting because they are spawning. Amazing sight to see these fish schooling over the sand areas away from any weed beds. I know that when they come on the bite they will have lost a bit of condition. Good to see so many. Jim

    Boat Code

    Can anyone tell me how to read a NSW Boat Code. I believe it shows the year of manufacture

    The old local fisho was out in his boat all day and had never got a bite. Up comes this 40ft cruiser and 8 people drop their lines in. Suddenly there were 8 fish hooked. This went on over and over again with fish coming in everywhere. The old fisho up anchored and headed back to the ramp, followed by the big boat. One of the guys asked the old fisho if he had caught anything to which he sadly shook his head. He then asked what they were using for bait. Licorice was the reply. He looked puzzled and asked what they catch on licorice. Allsorts was the reply

    Removing black gut lining

    That's what I like about luderick. The iodine weedy taste, especially the skin. Leave it in and enjoy the unusual flavour. YUM.

    Flathead in the bucket

    Many years ago I was fishing for luderick using weed. Imagine my surprise when I landed a good sized flathead.

    Boat identification

    I have recently acquired a tinny 3.8m long. Having to have an id number attached it is actually 3.86m long .Wow My quandary is that no-one knows the manufacturer. It is a very old boat with the sides being pressed from a single sheet of aluminium. Photos attached to help.
  12. I grew up 2 minutes walk from the road/ rail bridges. Pulled many a luderick out of there but I think it is all sanded up there. Is there any depth around there now?

    I am lucky!

    I have checked a few different manufacturers and average weight fr 15 hp is too heavy for me to lift with my medical problem. I am getting what they call a lightweight 9.9 Around the same weight as my old 6hp. New one is a Tohatsu at around $1800 or so. I could have picked up a used Merc for $1700 and it was a 15hp but I couldn't lift it off the floor. Getting old isn't always easy

    I have a 3.9 m tinny for which I have been searching for a new motor. A 15 hp would be good except it is too heavy. for the boat and me. I have just found a 9.9 two stroke long shaft to suit at a greatly reduced price. Reduced because the manufacturer is giving discounts to deplete their two stroke stock. Apparently two strokes are being phased out due to pollution and 4 stroke will be the norm. Seems I got in just in time.
