Re: Tld for swords?

No they are not up to it. If you kept the drag pressure low you might get away with it though....

If you cant afford a Tiagra you could look at either a metal aftermarket frame for your TLD 50.
Or buy a tyrnos 50, metal frame version of the TLD.

Re: Refuge cove

Depends how close you are, near the fishing grounds not much is the short answer.

Also remember you have to come back through the entrance.

Re: Refuge cove

https://www.fishranger.com.au/forecast/for/week/at/location/Rabbit%20Island Should get a good day in friday fishing. Saturday is going to be sloppy and Sunday is going to be abysmal.

Re: Refuge cove

Un-forecast SW to at least 30knots.... wasn't ideal getting back in to refuge, but we made it slowly. In that situation. Even with the accuracy of modern day forecast predictjng the future is never easy and doesn't always end up as expected. From memory the forecast for Saturday was 8-10knts and it...

Re: Refuge cove

Refuge Cove is roughly 45km from Welshpool ramp.

4.8m tinny is not suitable for the trip. Leave it at home and go in your mates 6.5m.

1/4 or 1/2 or even 1oz all work fine for flathead.

Re: Dual Battery Setup and Battery Charging

Not sure about tohatsu outboards but usually its just under 2k? Don't quote me though.. Typically the alternator will put out what it can at lower rpms but doesn't reach full current until around 1800rpm. At idle there is more than enough output current to put some charge into the battery if there ...

Re: Not my day

A little excitement in an otherwise dull day.

Played it smart and made it home ok. :thumbsup:

It might have been a blocked water gallery due to debris or salt build up.

Give it a good fang in the lake and see if the alarm goes off again.
