  1. went out early around the heads. not much happening. couple of hits on cali squid on the downrigger, but did not hook up. nothing around Clifton gardens, but the birds were working there. would not take metal slices or rapalas bit windy and the water is still a bit cold - 18.5 deg today hoping for better results in a couple of weeks

    Trailer Wheels

    problem solved. 30 yr old son (who is a plumber) and much stronger than me, called around. no heat needed. just a big hit with his big persuader (on a block of wood) cracked the seal with 1 hit each side. bearings now done. cheers

  8. Gday. I hv a problem. Doing some trailer maintenance before going away in Jan. I have alloy rims on steel hubs. I am replacing the bearings. I cant get the rims to separate from the hubs - they are frozen on. The nuts came off fine. No amount of gentle persuasion will budge them. I dont want to really get the big persuader out (sledge hammer) as that wud probably crack the rims. Any ideas ?? Cheers
  9. if u want to go outside, try trolling around boondelbah and little islands for salmon, bonnies and poss the odd king. if thats no good, a drift between pt stephens and those islands (either northbound or southbound depending on tide/wind/current) shud produce flatties, flounder and the odd shovelnose
  10. i have several rapala green mackrel and blue mackrel cd lures. they do a great job, but now several years old and suffering from salty toothy critters marks, and now the paint is pretty poor. trhey are not easy to get hold of, and also quite expensive to replace (if u can get them) i'd like to have a go at refurbishing them, and wonder what paint to use. was thinking of enamel paint used on model aircraft/trains etc. wud prime first after a light sanding, and then possibly finish with an enamel clearcoat over the colour any ideas ?? cheers lambo

    tinny repairs

    i am in the process of repainting my tinny. during the strip process, i discovered there are some holes under the paint (old rivet holes etc) and wondering whats the best to repair them. i am thinking about silicone or aluminium epoxy putty, both of which i have. the holes are not have to be weight bearing or structural stuff. anyone had any experience with epoxy filler ? pleased to hear cheers
  12. hey raiders went to ki the week before last with my mate and his dog. we fished the north coast for 5 days, and got snapper and king george whiting every day. here is a sample of the kgw, which hope is ok for inclusion in cotm cheers lambo
  13. thanks mate, i'll give it a go cheers
  14. Gday raiders. The throttle control on my 40 hp Yammie is quite stiff, and needs replacing. From what I can see, there is a back plate with a couple of Phillips Head Screws holding the Plate (the lower one) to the main control throttle body. Has anyone done this replacement ? If so, are there any tricks ? I'd hate to take it off and have a million small parts spring out... Appreciate any help/advice Cheers
  15. good one mate. we went out on thursday and found heaps of salmon close off nth head and a couple of hundred metres north. we chucked heaps of various lures/slugs/flies at them but really only took very small blue/white flies. cheers
