I am looking to purchase a new VHF radio for my 4.55m Quintrex to replace an old 27 meg one. Required for close inshore work only - up to 3km offshore. Any suggestions as to brands and models I should be looking at (or avoiding!). I note that some have the controls on the face of the unit itself and others (a bit more expensive) have them all on the microphone. Advantages/disadvantages of each? What length aerial will I need?
Hi everyone Years ago I rock fished (among many other things) and never more than 1km from Maroubra Beach so checking surf conditions quickly was easy. Fast forward 20 years and western Sydney is a long way for a quick check of sea conditions. Can any of you recommend any live cams to monitor for current wave activity? Also, if there is/are app/s for swell forecasts etc. to ascertain whether it is worthwhile to head to the coast to rock fish? Thanks in advance for any tips....
Hey raiders, I am an Industrial Designer and am in the process of designing a PFD purely focusing on fishermen and women. I have done all my research and background info gathering but now comes the fun part of actually designing the thing. I would love your input. Whether you fish from a boat, a kayak, from rocks, from the beach or anywhere else! Let me know things you love about current designs,things you hate about current designs, features you would love to see in a new PFD design, comfortable designs you have tried, uncomfortable designs and anything and everything related to PFD design that might help me design a flotation device that will best suit you! Thanks very much for your help with thisl I hope I am not breaking any rules re: sponsors etc! Cheers Mark
