    Micro rods?

    Hi Raiders, I've been looking around and came across a Zebco Dock Demon. Further investigation shows that there are a few of these tiny/micro rods floating around. In a similar vein, there are "pen" rods that are telescopic and exceedingly small. One of the obvious aspects of something like this is the portability, which got me thinking about being able to take one bushwalking, or even in my backpack "just in case" you know? Another interesting and seemingly counter-intuitive aspect is that some of them seem nigh-indestructible. I have broken a telescoping rod fighting a shark before, so the idea of an unbreakable rod that is still tiny and super portable is very intriguing to me. The downside is that on a tiny rod, even a very big fish doesn't feel that big, so I wonder if it would be worth the trade-off? Anyone have experience with these?
  3. Hi Fisher Folk, I recently had a terrible push biking + fishing rods accident that has left both my favourite rod and integrity shattered. As a result i'm looking for a new shore jigging rod to fill the void of my new made 5 piece Daiwa Lateo 11MH. It was a great rod, particularly the extra length (11ft) but looking for something slightly nicer and willing to spend around $300-500. Looking online its difficult to find many similar shore jigging style rods on the Australian market that offer similar quality or style. I have however come across and read promising things about the Palms Shore Gun series of rods, does anyone have any experience with these rods? Furthermore could anyone possibly suggest any other models that fit the same category, primarily looking for a heavier rods between 2-4 PE or 10-20KG at ideally around the 11 foot length. Ill be matching it up with my Daiwa Sol 2 4000H which ill add hasn't been nearly as impressive as the original Sol and rather disappointing in comparison. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, cheers. Finbar

    Surf Shark fishing gear

    Just wondering what rod and line I should get for shark fishing from the surf I already have a reel (penn spinfisher ssm 950) I'm thinking about getting some form of 65lb multicoloured braid and I'm wanting a rod around the 10-12ft mark. It will mostly be used for bronze whalers and gummies but there is also the chance of mulloway
  5. Hi Fishraiders, After trading in the sailboat on a fishing boat, I made an initial investment in a set of entry level reels to get started for in-shore and near offshore fishing. Shimano Sedona 2500 Shimano Symetre 4000 Shimano Baitrunner 6000 Shimano TLD 25 , The two bigger reels came with cheap rods as part of a package. Last night (on the turn of the tide) I hooked up to a 4 foot gummy shark on the Baitrunner and the Shimano Eclipse 8-12 Kg rod broke in half. So I'm looking for a replacement. My budget is $80-$120. (Sneakyfisho have a 20% off sale on rods now.) This will be my main rod for heavier spinning duties so it has to be an all-rounder. I don't want to break the next one and lose a Mulloway or a Kingfish the size of the gummy (which I did manage to land, by the way.) I'd appreciate any recommendations Steve
  6. Hi everyone, I am new to this forum but have been an ardent recreational fisherman for a long time. Although I have fished & caught many species my favourite is still bream!! Nobody can deny the feeling of catching a Jewie or Kingy or any other type of game fish for that matter, but there's still something special about bream.. I purchased a pfleuger trion rod about a year ago from BCF and attached a Shimano Symetre 2500 reel. I absolutely loved the feel and the strength of the rod. I have used it with both plastics & live bait (prawns, yabbies & worms) and have had great success with it. I recently ordered two more (for the price of one) from a US tackle shop. I now have 5 in total. They are all 2-4kg rods IM-8 graphite some are 2 piece and some are 1 piece. I was wondering if anybody else uses pfleuger and what your thoughts were? If not, what is your preferred gear for bream?
