  1. I have suspension seats in my Cat. They work great and help as I cannot stand whilst underway at speed due to bad back and knees. They take 95% of the shock out. Only issue is that on the odd occasion you bottom the seat out I think it is worse than not having suspension seats at all. My seats are standard KAB style truck seats.
  2. Are you referring to the Broken Bay (Sydney North) FAD? - that is still missing - I made the same mistake on Sunday. Terrigal FAD is still there and you should of spotted the dozen boats around it. where do you fish for flatties of Broken Bay? I usually have a drop on the way back in for zeros.... Nice catch.
  3. well done mate. I generally try for a drop after a day pulling lures and always get zeros.... You fish straight out of the mouth or slightly south? Nice fish
  4. keep your head up. I did 150 hours over Christmas and about 120 hours this year for 2 rat dollies. I have hooked a few fish but nothing has stuck. Still better than sitting in front of this computer all day..
  5. Great read and well done champ. Once the bug bites it bites hard. Cheaper to have a drug habit though...
  6. Fished out of Broken Bay on Monday the 3rd. Went to FAD. Dead as a doornail (to be expected - to early). Headed wide and just over the shelf had nice water with bait. 1130 hours had a good run (50 meters) on one of my divers only for leader to fail (suspected crimp failure) Continued on 5NM NNE and between 1230 - 1400 hours had 2 strikes on the long corner (seen one strike) and another visual strike on the shotgun. Had elec issues and lost GPS so headed home 14330 hours.
  7. The marina I use (Fenwicks) at Brooklyn is consistently $1.89 for diesel.

    Members Boats.

    Been a member on here for a while now. Recently took the plunge into a bigger boat and picked up this Sailfish with Twin 140hp Volvo deisels. Call sign Chicka. Boat is moored in Brooklyn. Fish wide off Broken Bay and down to Browns. If you see me out feel free to say g'day.
  9. MerryFisher, That yellowfin was off Port Stephens. Apparently a couple around that area but to far to take the boat up for the day. Hopefully the water may continue to push south
  10. Broken Bay Wide refers to the shelf. Turned around 10 miles out on Saturday as seas were 4 meters, boat overturned at Brisbane waters and it was horrendous. Went out again on the Sunday and ran about 45 miles out for zeroes. That was the Sunday the bite was south of Browns. Water looked ok and had some life in it but no luck. Ran out Sunday just gone to same area, had a nice temp break with bait but zeroes again. Looking at the SST their seems to be some ok water in between Broken Bay and Browns. I would be heading there. Unfortunately I am working or I would be burning fuel again on Saturday. Will probably give it another couple of weeks until this moon phase shifts. Good luck and let me know how you go.
  11. Well done Nipper. I am heading out tomorrow from Broken Bay. Will go wide from their and tossing up whether to go south or North. Cooler water looks well wide at the moment so fingers crossed.
  12. All, Considering that a good sized Blue fin was landed well east of Broken Bay widea couple of days ago, and looking at and studying the forecast for Saturday I think it is well worth a shot to go for a run. Good temp break, smack bang in the middle of some eddys etc etc. This is more a call out to see if anyone else will be heading wide. Call Sign Chicka on VHF 16 and 21.
  13. Phil, Another one to consider is Trailcraft Profish. I had a 540 with 115 4st Yammie. Great boat and should not be discounted in your research. At the time of purchase I also looked at the Tabs Territory Pro. Ultimately it came down to $$ and I choose the Trailcraft. Very stable boat. Only sold it as i was getting into game fishing and it wasn't suitable. Cheers
  14. All, Does anyone have any first hand experiences with the larger Markham Dominator catamarans? Specifically the 7000 and 8100 models? Just after some info on how they ride, towing weight and anything else that you wish to disclose from your ownership or ride in one. If you could refrain from dragging up all the old rollinator stories it would be appreciated.... With thanks, Ben
  15. Daniel, I had a Trailcraft 540 Profish several years ago. Good solid boat. Side console. Equivalent to the Top Ender. Only sold it as I was getting into game fishing and the thing would bang around when running wide. Was fantastic fishing inside and within the harbour. Ben
