  1. They only work at speed. You need to troll squid slowly. Best bet is to use snapper leads. We use to use them on a rubber band so if they got caught up they would snap off. Bit expensive though. Just tie them to a swivel a metre above your bait. You will need to mark out metres on mainline though if not using coloured braid.....
  2. Hi, I picked up my new second hand Prado late on a Wednesday night. Next day drove to QLD to purchase my boat. Got back to Ballinna that day. Went to local rego place in qld to get needed papers to tow it back. Had wife insure it as well. Drove back next day with new boat and car. Neighbours could not comprehend how this had happened in a day and looked like the castle for a bit!!! Did trailer and boat stuff back here at place near Drummoyne boat ramp. good luck with it. cheers
  3. Hi, Do you have a rod already or in mind. I have certates in the sizes you are looking at. Personally like them in smaller sizes then Stella's in larger sizes. Cheers
  4. I was there some years ago and a mate got washed in fishing the lower section for drummer when no action on livies. Same swell that day too. He just got too impatient. Lucky a nearby boat picked him up. I had to carry all his LBG gear out!! Heavy gear back then...
  5. Don't know but beggs the question on the profile of many are long and skinny......

    Old days

    Hi gents, how things have changed but stayed the same. Overseas and came across some guys fishing rocks near a heap of surfers on beach. They had portable shelters set up. Looked like a shanty town with rods and stuff everywhere!! ....Walked out to the point and their gear was pretty average. Wasn't expecting much.. No Stella's or tiagras etc..have a chat and...... So they have a 25kg and 30kg GT in an esky.....they were using old looking rods and pen senators that wouldn't get a mention in Aus in the same sentence as GT. So they had anchor rods where they cast a heavy sinker close to drop off (15ft to 100ft)and snag it. Then slide livies on fighting rods with a simple release line...

    Old days

    Memories... So now when I say I was into LBG people question my land based game LOL. Have a few pacific composite rods sitting around from back in the day. Also a shimano tsm4 . Also have my first overhead Combo.. A shimano bullwhip rod and similar reel... Have some floppy lures and full sets of tassie Devils and many old school freshwater lures.... Cheers old boys
  8. For sure. Best thing was the day before my mate got one at 86cm and gave it to us all night until I knocked this one on the head! Got to love Coffs...
  9. My biggest snap at 87cm was hooked just under a school of baitfish up north. Expected a tuna or sonmething because it was so high up....
  10. Oh crap, My parents decided to sell their investment property up there rather then set up a family holiday spot and me taking my galeforce up there....grrrrrrr
  11. OK. So in the the hell out of hiking out the front of Tomaree....spelling may be wrong LOL
  12. Are we talking the break wall near the marina??? If so hats off for a serious capture...or is there another wall???
  13. Hi, i have a saltiga 20 that I run on standard jigging rod and on my gomuku and a certate 3500 on the other. Gomuku rod. Have not used them much last few years though!!! also put a Calcutta on one for fun....
  14. 30 kg wahoo is insane...the first run must have had the reel smoking. Fish of a life time for sure. I guess motto for second day was "wire trace is good!!!!!"
