    Garmin fishfinder running off a small battery

    Ok great. I'm pretty sure my transducer is set up correctly. The screen is showing as per the video examples and set up instructions. I think my issue is that I am expecting to see "arches" when i'm trolling or drifting. Probably watched too many fishing shows showing these arches LOL.. But all I see is the screen gets clouded up red when fish are around. I know this from catching fish around a minute after i see the clouded red. It's set up at 70hz. Another thing, is when i'm on a hot bite, i look at the sounder, and nothing shows.
  4. Hi All, Just wondering if running my fishfinder from a small 12v 9AH battery would impact the quality of the sounder? e.g would the sonar work as good if it was running off my boat battery? I have one of these: https://www.ja-gps.com.au/Garmin/striker-plus-7cv/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1Kuhteag3QIVVgoqCh2kIQ8UEAQYBSABEgLC7vD_BwE Still trying to figure out if it's actually sounding fish.. Cheers

    Had a spare weekend finally!! Sso decided to wet the line. Managed a few hours on the water and caught feed or so. Best fish was the 48cm snapper caught on an elkat snapper flasher.

    Rigging your own gang hooks for Tailor?

    It's a bit fiddly to make, if u got the time... but I don't really, so I use these off the beach. Actually, I use them off boat and rocks too. ELKAT GANG HOOKS _ Elkat Fishing Australia.html
  7. Thanks Windy! I was hoping to use the sargaossa for livebait under a float for any thing big that happens to take it...hopefully stop it with that Cool - i'll scope the area I'll take extra lures
  8. Hi Raiders, Heading to Hamilton Island in a couple weeks and will get on a charter. No time to rent a dinghy as well as doing a charter unfortunately. However , I would really like to do my own fishing land based. Will be taking up 2 rods (light and a Mid to heavy range) - 4,000 Daiwa and 10,000 Shimano Saragossa + Lures. I've read posts here from years ago and hoping I could get a more current suggestions. Thanks in advance all!
  9. Hi Raiders, Are there any tackle shops near Avoca where I can buy beach worms? I'm hopeless at catching them! Thanks in advance. Cheers!
  10. Hey Raiders, I'll be staying in Huskisson this weekend and seeing if anyone has a spare spot for a seriously top rated deckie or Could someone recommend a charter? I wont be taking the boat down, but the conditions looks good for this weekend and I'll be stinging to get to the deeper waters. Cheers,
