    Fish smoker - what to buy?

    Whats your budget? Do you prefer something and electric one which he can turn on and load the chips in? Or do would you prefer a solution that uses a fire chamber? Do you want the unit to second as a BBQ?

    Starting the Boat Journey

    You didn't find the 385 a tad small? I had a look at the size at the international boat show and it found it a little small for three adults casting? Was looking at a 420 or possibility a 460.. Regards

    Bream Rods with small butts

    Nitro Powerbream Finesse has a tiny butt... Otherwise get one custom made. Howler Custom rods used to make rods for We flick fishing that were excellent... had tiny butts that you enabled you to customise the weights of the butts so you can match it with a specific reel...

    Starting the Boat Journey

    I do prefer second hand boats as there are so many boats out there that need a home. In addition there is so much wastage right now that adding a new boat just doesn't seem right.

    Starting the Boat Journey

    The boat will be used for two things hopefully 1. Estuary fishing chasing bream and flathead 2. Fishing headlands and within bays and inlets. I am leaning towards a 4.3 / 4.5 with a front or centre console on a braked trailer. Might have to try a few boats out I guess. Anyone know a place that rents boats on trailers for a week?

    Starting the Boat Journey

    OK Guys, I'm starting the boat journey and my first question is about the towing! I am looking at boats between 3.8m-4.5m to fit three blokes comfortably. The family currently has an 2017 outback with a towing capacity of 2,700 lbs. Does anyone have an 2017 outback that they use to tow and what kind of boats do you guys have? Looking for examples so I know what I'm looking for. And yes i've looked at websites that show me how to calculate the maximum towing capacity of my car but that does not mean much when I don't really know how much a boat and trailer typically weights.

    Browns Rock report - with a word of warning.

    Fish looks like a big grinner. Police have fined a few around me as well on Cape Banks. Heard about the poor bloke that drowned just recently, really feel sorry for the wife she was there with him. Anyways the fish your holding is a Pig, aka a drummer, ask a rock black fish. It is not a luderick. Nice catch to its fantastic eating! Tight lights

  15. The eyes being pronounced is most likely because the fish has just been pulled from 110m of water.
