  1. Thanks again for the number Dieter! I gave him a call yesterday arvo and he only uses the bearings I mentioned earlier that you can purchase online! Gonna get them installed by him next week. Bring on the Marlins πŸ˜πŸ€™
  2. Thanks for the replies guys, I'll send them to Shimano πŸ€™
  3. The place I found them on Fleabay is a company I've seen others on here talk about (Pla*g Bearings) - Not looking to skimp on gamefishing gear at all!, Rebel in fact PMd the actual business through, which was the same seller on Fleabay 😁 I know the guy from there, I'll pop in to check! Cheers, Brendo
  4. Yeah agree, It will be $150 for my reels, plus parts & postage. Money isn't exactly the problem, I figured if any guys on here work at tackle shops etc. or have done them themselves, why not keep it local on the forum! ✌️
  5. Hey Raiders, I have tried searching through the site to see if anyone has replaced the 2 spool bearings in a Tiagra 50W (Part 576), or any size Tiagra for that reason? I have recently had my mate from Freddys Fishing at Erina service 3 of my reels ready for Marlin season, but he doesn't know how / Doesn't want to touch the bearings...I have seen a few posts on here with those purchasing bearings off a certain seller on fleabay. Appreciate any comments or if know anyone who could have a look at these (For cash or beers of course !😁), if not I will send them to Shimano - Which they cha
  6. Welcome to the Coast! πŸ₯³ There is plenty of different options for fishing around here, all within reasonable distance and never too crowded! Do you have any more details on what fish species you specifically want to target, along with what type of fishing you prefer e.g. Rock/Estuary/Beach etc. Are you landbased or do you have a boat? Happy to help and try point you in the right direction, but there are others from around here that have been on Fishraider a lot longer than me and would have more experience. Cheers, Brendo
  7. Nice work! What about the kingies in the pic? πŸ˜²πŸ˜ƒ I guess you get them on the squid?
  8. Sweet, They are nice boats! - I know 2 different guys that have the same colour Polycrafts on Brisbane Waters πŸ‘ (Probably been yahooing to the wrong guy. LOL) πŸ˜…
  9. Awesome work on the upgraded PB in one trip @antonywardle!! πŸ€™ Was that with Woz? (Recognise the boat). Good to see a lot of Jew around...might be time to try for a night sesh again soon 😁 They seem to go a lot harder in Brissy Waters as the water warms up.
  10. Yeah same experience as @PaddyT but ballooning them off the rocks, either been sharked or massive tangles from everyone else casting over the top. πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ Have you tried the base of The Skillion or Winnie Bay? A lot less crowded and have hooked some unstoppables on 80lb using poppers or live yakka. πŸ€”
  11. Thank you Rich! Just managed a lot of time on the water recently! πŸ‘ Puppy dog eyes. LOL 🀣 He was a top guy though! Wouldn't take whatever cash I offered him, and only finally convinced him to take the carton I bought him. Hahaha. Sounds like I'll be running out with them come marlin/dollie season - I'll definitely be staying in the boat out that wide! πŸ’©πŸ˜‚
  12. Cheers mate, Nothing beats it! You can literally watch some boats that have been out early start heading in when they can smell it 🀣
  13. Thanks @Scratchie πŸ€™ I've seen sharks there before - I can assure you I didn't let the other guys didn't get more then 2/3 metres out of my sight! 😝🀣 Hopefully fishing picks up there, my trailer is ready to tow up again. Getting keen for a possible camp on the island sometime. πŸ‘
  14. Cheers guys! πŸ€™ Yeah really appreciate someone like that! I have had it happen to myself at the wharf before so I hope it's a bit of good karma coming around. hahaha
  15. mmm...That would sound good and actually camping on the island itself! πŸ€”πŸ˜‰ Believe me! I think I had a constant berley trail following me! 😝
