Re: Where to buy cured eel?

I'm pretty sure I've just seen it in complete anglers bait freezer. I'm not a westy so I'm talking about Dandenong/Ringwood but give CA a call if there is a store near you and ask.

Re: A day in The Rip.

I have a Penn Spinfisher SSV 6500 spooled with 50lb braid on a 8-15kg Shimano Triton. Reckon this setup would do the trick? I've also got two Shimano Baitrunner 8000 Oc's on 6-8kg rods that I was thinking might work. I've done the snapper this year (first time), considering having a go at the RIP :...

Re: A day in The Rip.

We ran 3 setups. A tld25 on a no name roller tip boat rod rated about 25kg. This was overkill but they still put a bend in it. A saragosa 6000 on a terez 15-30lb, this was good but prolly wanted to up the rod one notch as we didn't have much control over them once the really took off but the reel wa...

Re: which boat is better? (Has crorrect trailcraft add attached) 6mt quintrex or 2002 sports cab trail craft 5.6m?

I believe the ride on the quintrex is supposed to be superior but I've always liked the trailcrafts (nearly bought one). They have a great cabin layout. That Johnson looks like it's the 4 stroke which is just a rebadged Suzuki and is meant to be a top motor. Very fuel efficient too. Even though John...

Re: Tinny on a budget

Maybe the plug was newer than the others? It could also be a sign that that cylinder is running a different mixture than the other 2 which could point back to a fuel starvation issue on one cylinder. Get yourself 3 new plugs that are the correct ones for your motor (check manual) and keep the others...

Re: NSW Mud Crab

The crabs are still in PPB. I was snorkelling 2 weeks back off Sorrento and pulled the boat up over what looked like a reefy section in about 3m. Jumped over the side and there was no reef, just thousands and thousands of crabs writhing on the bottom. I caught one to show the folks on the boat that ...

Re: Tinny on a budget

Sometimes you can just drop the bowls off the carbs (without removing carbs from engine) and squirt around with carby cleaner and it might clear out a gummed up blockage. This requires no tuning or balancing afterward because you didn't adjust anything. It's pretty easy and cheap to do. it doesn't a...

Re: Tinny on a budget

If you just want to get on the water then take it to a reputable outboard mech and let him diagnose and fix. Having said that, if you're like me then that's no fun, so.... Throttle should be fully open when testing compression and the ignition off (spark disabled on the primary side of the coil). Un...
