  1. Cooked for 40 mins on the Weber 30 mins in the foil and 10 mins foil open, was awesome
  2. I have been grounded for a while with the birth of our 2nd child I was not allowed out but I finally got out yesterday and the the wind around Lake Macquarie was uncomfortable in my little boat so I just pottered over to Bolton point and found a bit of cover just as the tide started going out I have been trying to crack the plastics code for a year now and not been very successful, so I was trying a few things to see what happened I was throwing plastics and vibes and even a cranks crab around even trying to figure out how to work the sugapen and was getting nowhere, while I was undoing a knot in the braid I threw over an old prawn that I had in the freezer for a year on the spare rod it was a last second decision to bring the old bait bag from the freezer as I have been leaving the bait at home on purpose for the last year to keep me trying on the plastics It was only about 5 mins and away she went and dinner was in the boat kinda makes me feel I have been wasting my time and money for the last year trying to learn the plastics.
  3. Nice upgrade! Looks very good enjoy
  4. ? I should have read this yesterday, another fishless morning this morning ? happy to get lessons off anyone anytime ?
  5. I'm clearly useless but will have a better go around there next time i get out, Are you using plastics or Bait?
  6. I drifted around past that side of Pulbah Island once, and caught an okay squid but that's about it
  7. Nice One, And good luck Mate, hope you do better than me I have been toiling away on the Lake for a year now since i got my first boat (Mainly North of Pullbah) and not many fish bigger than my hand, But still always good just to be on the water
  8. I got that problem sorted with some help from Lowrance technical service, it was all in the settings. Now my problem seems to be either i don't know how to use it or i have not come over any fish since installing it. Have taken it out 4 ties since installing it the first on the Hawkesbury east of the road bridges and all i saw was 100's of fish nice nice arches and everything, until i realized it was picking up all the jellyfish ?‍♂️ The next 3 times have taken it out on lake Macquarie and found ZERO fish ? but that's about how many fish i tend to catch so probably should be all that surprised
  9. Same question hear too, when you say tilt forward, is that tilt the tip down?

  11. Okay I’m making progress slowly I finally got the unit to read the transducer ( i needed to turn the 1st sonar slot so it would read the total scan transducer in the second slot) Took forever to update the unit but finally got there. Got on the water and it seems to work when going slow but as soon as I speed up the image drops out and the depth gauge drops out. Not sure if I’m doing something or if the guy last that installed have put the transducer in the wrong spot.
  12. Hope yours works when you put it in the water
  13. Sorry for another probably stupid question. I ended up getting the HDS 7 Carbon, and had it installed by the guys that service my motor, I was a little worried when i picked it up and the guy who installed said that unit didn't pick up the total scan transducer on set up so he put in (generic 83/200) so i popped down to the boat ramp on the way home and gotin the water only to find the sonar was not working, tried rebooting and setting up myself and yet again there was no total scan transducer to select from the list of transducers. Anyone set one of these up before? or know what transducer to pick from the list? Or anyone have one and can see what transducer was selected on set up?
  14. Thanks for your help guys, Went back to ask more questions and as yella king said it would, it actually came with the transducer, despite what they told me on the weekend when the young guy told me that no one supplies them with the transducer included these days, so the guy i saw last night pulled it out of the box to show me it did come with a totalscan transducer. So i got the HDS7 Carbon, now just need install it and then see what it can do Ill have 1 less excuse for not catching fish, i may have to admit I'm useless if i cant start catching ?
