You have really worked out how to regularly catch the trout in the areas you fish and that is a lesson many anglers never seem to learn. Thanks again and...

Re: Mako Tactics

We have caught plenty of Mako's off Bermagui. If we were just shark fishing well we would just get a tub of fish heads, frames and guts from the fish cleaning tables and put them through a burley bin with a masher.

Re: Shimano TLD 50 2-speed

When we started game fishing we had a very motley collection of gear such as Penn Senators 6/0 and 8/0 and various stray rods but we managed some good fish on that gear so your TLD 50 with 1,000 m of line should do fine.

A FEW WORDS OF WISDOM

I hope members will accept this post in the spirit it is intended. When we go game fishing we often spend very large amounts of money - boats, motors, electronics, fuel, accommodation, travel costs, etc etc. Every so often we hook up that "fish of a lifetime" and while sometimes fate is ag...
