Lifes a drag

Spent a fun few hours on a mates boat catching smallish pelagics on a variety of lures and light tackle. What I noticed was that as soon as you put a bit of hurt on, without fail the fish put there head down and tried to get to the bottom. If you left the drag lighter they ran away from the boat and...

Re: Fishing on Phillip Island

The real reason Punchbowl isnt safe is that you cant get out of the way of a big wave. You have cliff right at your back. I've walked down there but would never fish there.

Re: Are solar pannels worth it?

There are some good points here but one I would mention is that this is a long term play. If you are not going to stay put for at least 5 years then dont bother. Because its long term you should actually ignore all of the calculations based on todays pricing. Power prices will go up until the magic ...

Not what I was hoping

Saw a decent forecast so got up early for a land based reef bash. Lovely morning and nearly flat calm. I had two outfits, one for reef fish and a heavier outfit in case the kings put in an appearance. Plan was to catch something suitable on the light outfit and put it out live under a big float on t...

Kingfish charter recommendation

Hi guys, I've got my boss coming out from London, staying in Sydney and he wants to catch a Kingy. Anyone got a recommendation for me for a charter in the harbour, he's a proper fisho so one with decent gear would be good.
Thanks

Re: Tinny launching Loch Sport

Only stayed there once but I dont remember any beach ramps. Even in good weather I think the swell would be too big for a beach launch anyway. I would stick to the lakes in something that size, you are a long way from any help down there.

Re: land based shark fishing

I was using a tld15 with 30lb mono and got dusted multiple times last year. I was casting into deeper water as conditions were rarely right for ballooning. The tld 30 works great in the boat, just can't cast it. Fishing for trout? tld15, for lbg, not even in the same the same sentence :( No fun if ...
