  1. Thanks For the advice! I have recently been doing that (thumbing the spool to get accurate casts) and I feel like it's time to invest in a baitcaster. Thanks
  2. OK thanks. I just found out the cast weight for the rod is up to 48grams. And I thought we still are akoud to go fishing in nsw just with one person???
  3. I can't find the lure weighting for it
  4. Hey guys, I am very new to cod fishing and I am buying my first baitcaster setup. I don't fish for cod very often so because of this I won't be spending lots of money. I just want to ask you guys if a 4-8kg baitcaster rod is good enough for cod. Its an Abu garcia Pro max combo which has a 4 to 8kg rod and a reel with a 7.1:1 gear ratio. I will be using it with spinner baits and some smaller hard bodies for rivers and sometimes dams. Also I can't find the lure rating for this rod anywhere, I have looked everywhere and cant find it, if anyone knows it could you please share it with me. Do you guys think this combo will get the job done? Thanks
  5. Will an Abu garcia Pro max be an alright combo for chasing smaller cod with stuff like spinnerbaits?
  6. Hey Guys. I am investing in a baitcaster for Murray cod! The problem is I have no idea about baitcasters. Firstly, can you change the reel handle from right to left or do you have to buy a separate reel - All the baitcasters I have found online are right handed. And also if anyone has any suggestions for a baitcaster combo/ baitcaster rod and reel for under $200 that would be great. I will be fishing in rivers and sometimes in dams. Thanks
  7. Guys bad news. I took it apart, cleaned and greased it and it was fixed and back working normally, I took it out this afternoon and after about half an hour the same problem started happening. Now I'm at home (3 hours later) and my reel seems to have magicalky fixed itself . Hmmmmm could it be to do with the line being wet??
  8. Hey guys just to let you know I took the reel apart, cleaned the grease and oil off it and re greased it, cleaned it all up, put it back togethor and magically the problem is know solved. Who knows what was wrong with it.
  9. I have dunked it twice in freshwater yes.
  10. Thanks. I'm wondering if something needs greasing because I can move the actual spool round without issues but when I use the handle it sometimes seizes up.
  11. The reel is about 6 months old and it has never been used in or near saltwater. The closest time it's "been exposed to the elements" was a couple of times I dunked it in freshwater by accident when dealing with fish while wading. Never been dropped in sand or dirt. Does anybody reckon it could be a grease/oil job on a certain part? Yeah it's just a bit rough while reeling and sometimes when pausing then starting again the reel handle seizes up (it is only the handle because I can move the actual spool with no issues) Thanks
  12. Hey guys, I have recently started noticing that on my shimano Sienna 2500, when reeling it in it is a bit gritty but still works but then when I stop winding and try to wind again, the reel handle struggles to get going round again. When this happens I have to use force and it implicates on my action when using plastics. Does anybody know what might be going on with this reel and what I could do to fix it. e. g. What part to take out? What part to oil? Etc... Thanks
  13. Hey guys just wondering if you guys could give me Some suggestions on a rod and reel meant for catching redfin on lures. I prefer shimano and my price range is just as cheap as possible but still with shimano. Thanks
  14. Hey guys so I’m wondering if my raider snapper with a 4000 reel can handle cod it’s got 15-45gm lure weight and I’ve got 15lb braid with 30lb leader. Is this good enough to cast big lures land based for murray cod? thanks
  15. Yeah I’m hoping the rivers improve soon! Yeah must of been the time when I started to walk that the spinner had time to sink. Thanks!
