  1. Big fan of Sufix 832 also, but recently changed to Sufix 131 which I believe is a 12 carrier braid. Much difference? Not enough to warrant the $$.
  2. I think advice like the above is invaluable especially when starting out with braids. In my personal experience using baitcasting gear especially, it’s really a case of trial and error. You’ll usually find what works best for you and stick with it. Nobody ever seems to agree on what is “the best braid” because we all fish differently. Great post though, gotta love Aussie bass angler, I got my Hobie from them. I just wish they weren’t such a long drive from me.
  3. Apparently the trick with this stuff is just the one coat, as the second coat won’t adhere to the first one
  4. That’s actually who I purchased the sealer from!
  5. So I’ve had a really nice new baitcaster built, it’s perfect and I love it to death. (expensive) Got myself some U40 corkseal for the handles, but getting cold feet about using it now. All of the online reviews I’ve read seem to be positive but mostly US reviews. Has anyone used this stuff? Any negative affects on grip colour, feel or finish?
  6. eBay. Cut your losses, buy the rod you need.
  7. Not that concerned about waiting, just wondering about other people’s experiences regarding the company and their products. Maybe someone loved their products and think they’re worth the wait. Thats the beauty of forums, opinions are usually first hand and unbiased I thought that could be the case also.
  8. Had anyone had any experience with their gear? I ordered a rod sleeve and lure guard from their site and it seems to be taking unusually long to get here. Love to hear your experiences - customer service or product related.
  9. Nice one! I’ve always wanted to do the mothership thing. I did two day trips on the Daintree and got my first couple of barra last year. Even though that wasn’t as big of a trip, there is definitely pressure to catch fish, especially not knowing when you’re going to do something like that again. I think the best approach is to just enjoy the trip and take it for what it is, you gotta be happy with the results you got, some nice fish there!
  10. I’ve been using a liuthium battery on a watersnake for three years, lasts me all day and never ever had a problem, they are fantastic. If you’re worried then fit an in line fuse, I have and it’s never blown. Search lifepo4 lithium batteries on eBay, I got a 40ah for around $400 - not cheap but you couldn’t pay me to lug around a 12-15kg battery in a kayak. This one is around 3-4kg. I even ran the wires into the kayak with a plug so I can keep the weight centered on the yak and have the battery in the centre hatch, here’s what I did...
  11. Nice report mate. There would be a lot of jealous fisherman (me included) that would kill to have access to water like that!
  12. Try Rushcutters bay. Easy access, can usually find a park, and can usually get a flatty on plastics under the yachts in the marina. Otherwise there’s often tailor around to keep you occupied.
  13. Yeah gonna be a nice hot weekend here too, and that bit of rain we got today should only help. Let us know how you go, if I can’t get out for a fish it’s nice to read about someone else’s trip!
  14. So Bass season officially opened 2 days ago. I can't head out for a while with a little one on the way. Has anyone been out yet? Any luck? I feel like with all of the rain we've had 2020/21 should be a good season.
  15. I’ve gone the cheap eBay kayak with a side mounted water snake and mount. It’s great, especially knowing you can paddle pretty much as far as you want and will always be able to get back without having to worry about fatigue. I did get a 40ah lithium battery which is about 3kgs instead of a normal 12V battery which are around 10-13kg. You can get them for about $400, and they are fantastic, if you don’t plan on spending the money on a lithium battery then don’t bother going the electric motor. I actually managed to fit my battery inside the center hatch and ran the wires through the kayak, mak
