Re: Lure Fishing Newbie!!

Jigheads I always tie a proper knot.....I reckon the SP responds much better to subtle twitching than with a loop knot or clip. I use Decoy clips for all other lures though. The trick to using a loop knot on lures I reckon is to get the loop small enough that it's not tight on the eye of the lure b...

Re: Lure Fishing Newbie!!

+1 on the motor oil curl tail grub, everything goes for them. I've caught flatties, bream, tailor, salmon and even a flounder on them. Zman make them and I bought a very similar thing from a local maker in lake tyres. If you can fish them with a 1/16oz jig head then you will need the right gear, li...

Re: Lure Fishing Newbie!!

Hey Swanny. Flatties are probably one of the easier targets for artificial baits so you're in luck. They will hit almost anything that moves if you can get it close enough to them. If you just want to have a crack then use a rod you already have that is able to cast light weights (between 4 and 15lb...

Re: Amazon

The other thing is that prices of the big brand tackle are reasonably tightly controlled so I doubt there will be anyone flogging decent gear at a massive discount because as soon as the sales reps find out who is behind it they'll crack down pretty hard. I agree this is happening. I've even been t...

Re: MIcro jigs

Ive successfully jigged those cheap metal slices (usually used for salmon spinning) and caught flatties. Well, when I say jigged, I mean bounce it off the bottom a foot or 2 and drift along. Also done it at 40m out of the eastern entrance (WP) and it worked. The trebles like to snag on anything they...

Re: A good breakfast

I've always put Vegemite on left over garlic bread after pasta night. It's delishious.

Re: Electrics Question (Curly one!)

NMEA is a balanced line, meaning the +/- is a relative signal to each other. By grounding the negative, it is now relative to ground and no longer a balanced line. This is not always possible and depends on the driving circuit of the devices but it is also not uncommon practice as it can reduce the ...

Re: Electrics Question (Curly one!)

I take it the red light you mention is on the actual markfish unit? You are wiring the black and red wires directly to your battery supply bus and not the red and black wires from your gps/furuno, right? It could be a faulty connection somewhere further up the wiring that gets disturbed by water or ...
