  1. Hi Doza I brought the same unit myself and also own a Elite HDI but have not been on he water yet but I'm guessing the Totalscan transducer will be networked under "Device Configuration " and will have to be activated under that menu. If I remember correctly the Elite transducer should work if you select generic 83/200 khz

    Battery for Elect motor

    That's a fair distance by electric power, I do ten k plus trips myself and don't want to discourage you just be aware I've had to paddle back on occasion. .At low speed these motors draw 9 amps and at full power 20 amps however you won't get double the speed at full power and use unnecessary battery unless your prop is the right size which is unlikely. I usually lock the motor straight ahead on half speed and leisurely paddle.
  3. I put in some feedback to the draft version which has been totally ignored. They have really underestimated how popular Cape Banks is with the Korean and Chinese community .

    You can still buy all the old colours down in Tassie, they still sell alright and will catch most species of fish.

    Fly Fishing - Lithgow/Blue Mountains

    Wading is illegal in TCD as is fishing from the wall, I don't flyfish anymore however as swordie mentions a green woolly bugger is a pretty good choice for that area. Some fairly deep spots on the far side of the dam you can fish without wading.

    fitzroy falls reservoir

    I would give Fitzroy Falls a miss as I've fished it occasionally since they built it and never caught a thing. Salty trout, the Mongarlowe River would be the closest decent water . You can check out Bill James guide books however many of the waters that held trout twenty years ago are barren of fish these days

    Watersnake problem resolved

    Thanks for the tip, I have the same motor but haven't been on the water yet, checked it and had to jiggle the handle a bit to get it to lock and i'll take my file just in case. I had the previous model for many years and the new one looks much improved , great value for money.

    Mercury Gear Lube Thickness

    Gear oil is twice as thick as engine, as long as it's not cream coloured which indicates water I wouldn't waste time or money flushing, go fishing instead.

    Braidwood area trout fishing

    I've never fished there however it's definitely stocked with trout every year, Bill James mentions in his book that the Mongarlowe is the best stream in that area.

    Drummoyne Ramp

    I've read the water police will help you out storing the boat at their base for a little while.

    capertee river

    The rivers starts sixty km north of Oberon but is it's a bit warm only five hundred meters elevation, I vaguely remember a trout farm on the Wolgan River that was washed way by floods, however I have never heard of any fishing there, anywhere south is worth a shot. If you want to try up that way Thompsons Creek Dam has been fishing well, caught a couple on Sunday and lost a real monster a few weeks back .

    capertee river

    I have never fished, wouldn't expect too much up there, too warm for trout and being eastern flowing there are no cod or goldens. Down lower in the gorges there might be trout or macquarie perch if you have a chopper, there are no roads to speak of.

    Pejar Dam

    I have personally caught a bass there and seen reports of them being caught on facebook, they are doing well and very fat. The trouting is hard, if you catch one its likely to be a couple of kilo's but not easy to catch,I've given up on the place.
