  1. G'day all, been probably close to 6 months if not more of me being regularly active on here, I have been getting out fishing of night on the way up home to Lake Mac, still sussing out different little spots around my side of the lake (Belmont) but recently been starting in all the little inlets on the Morriset side. What I have been doing in all this time since I last posted a fishing report or even the infamous kingy's on the reef vid and write up you may ask?? Well, my daughter's now 4, my son 7 this year and been getting into the 4wding a lot more. almost every weekend con
  2. @Scratchie you still got some up your way mate? im up your way almost full time nowadays.
  3. Getting out on the water and wetting a line regardless of a fish or not.....every day's a good day for fishing
  4. I'd definitely be going with the stradic and although i do support the view of other people who say you can still catch a fish with a cheap reel, with finesse fishing its all about the smoothness, good choice on the stradic, before reading through i was going to comment and tell you to go with some sort of shimano, a stradic or ultegra, even a sedona, all decently smooth reels and good for that finesse fishing, even if its just chasing bass or its your go to light setup.
  5. Hey all, been more than a long time since last posting on here, Changed jobs, moved around and haven't been able to get upto much fishing lately or cant even remember when the last creek carp sesh was, been out a couple of times on the big rig boat but nothing worth even videoing nor even taking photos of, So been lately just getting my bro's 4by ready for trips and we been doing couple of test nights locally along with making sure everything is right, Here's my latest vid and some piccys of the weekend just gone, went to Newnes (lithgow NSW), checked out Lost City, and the infa
  6. wait till i finish editing the 4wd video from the day after, busy is and understatement
  7. Thanks guys, i did my best to remember the day as i haven't had time to write the report due to being busy with stuff, plus the editing of vids, was a massive Long weekend for myself, sorting out fishing gear and fixing my brothers 4by on the friday, fish all day saturday 4am start got home round 9/10pm, then up sunday at 5am to go newnes 4wding, got home at 3am monday. then fix and rebuild the 4bys monday, big weekend. more vids to come
  8. Started out Early Saturday morning Long Weekend, Put the boat in at Tunks at around 5/6ish, After we tied up all the rods we started chasing around for bait, we tried middle harbour and only managed to get one squid, we then went over to little manly, and started to get a decent amount of yakkas, well atleast enough to give us some sort of bait for the trip, we already had some decent cuttlefish on board from the last outing on the boat provided by fluffy, We hit up the North Head, and seemed every man and his dog were out doing the same thing, setting up the bombs, trawling a
  9. Plenty of Kings at Long Reef Saturday arvo, pulled in close to 20/30 on stickbaits on sunset.
  10. Depends on where your going fishing i guess, flick N fish at thorneigh sells bait but havent been there in years so couldn't tell ya.
  11. i have caught one or two but very long hours, we used corn, your best bet if you wanna catch carp and other local fish is going into parra or more out towards the lakes like Lake woodcroft, parra lake reserve etc. i fish these areas reguarly along with some of the other creeks, parra river been producing the goods of decent sized carp as of late.
  12. im the same @DerekD siennas, sedonas and even higher on the food chain like stella, but if your gonna be using a reel just for landbased for carp or bream/flathead etc with a 1-3kg rod i don't see the need to spend more than a $55 sienna that will do the job, personally i like the sedona over the sienna more, but the new sienna are pretty nice and feel fairly smooth.
  13. Exactly, you can have three or so different setups for the price of one, and if one fails you, your not without a reel. Especially under that $150 mark, could get 3 siennas for that, first siennas with the 1+1bb when they were like $35-45 say 2-3 years ago, still going strong never even washed them or serviced them and still pull in fish.
  14. The reel question you want to ask (haha punny) yourself, is do i actually need to spend $150 or more on a reel that size?? I would personally just get youself a 2500 or 1000 size Shimano Sienna or a Sedona, especially that the new Sienna has the same bearings as the Sedona, and is $55 from Dinga on sale and you get a reel cover, you honestly can't go wrong. I have bought a couple and think the are damn good and 10 year warranty, how can you compete with that??, and even the old Sienna with 1+1 ball bearings and still work perfect, from being dunked in the yak to dropping it in sand,
  15. Have uploaded a new Video from last weeks carp outing and has some static filming from the good old iPhone plus some action cam footage while moving, eventually getting to the stage that I’m getting better, Static looks good showing some casts and then action when one of us are on, check it out here: Urban Creeks - Carpaholic let me know now what you guys think, don’t wanna make a post about every land based vid I do so I’ll probably just reply in here if enough people wanna watch it Regards Squ!rt
