Re: Spot the Spot!

Another one falls to google reverse image search. Haha. No offence intended if it wasn't used but when the picture isn't from a private collection the game doesn't quite work the way it's intended to.

No love in Aura Vale today.

Heard of a mate being gifted a couple of reddies for a feed that were caught in Aura Vale recently (Parks recommends you don't eat fish from here by the way) so a mate and I headed down to flick a few Celtas around. Was a bit of an effort casting into the wind from a few banks and was surprised to c...

Re: Heading down to the Peninsula, what is producing at the moment

A few weeks back we smashed the squid off the sisters in Sorrento. Both bagged out in about 2 hours. I can't promise they are still there but they usually are (a double bag in such a short time was better than usual though). Worth a go if you like calamari or hunting for bait.

Re: On leaders ...

I'm sure it'll catch em but you might lose a few jigs fishing 3lb. Squid aren't that fussy and losing jigs gets expensive, put heavier leader on. I usually fish about 8-15lb mono leader (whatever I have) for squid just so I don't lose jigs to the bottom so often. And then yeah, Flinders, you wanna u...

Re: On the Kings with ReelTime

Hey, nice trip. I've had a few cracks in the rip this year but no luck. When was the last time you went out and got onto them? I haven't heard anything of late but would be keen to have another crack if they're hanging around.

Re: Too long between drinks

Beautiful photos broomstick. I have snorkelled on the submerged rocks near the entrance of that location and can confirm that there are some big bream hanging around them but I couldn't get them to bite when I chucked a line at them. I too planned a trip up the beach to suss out the next inlet this ...

Re: Where to pump beach/blood worms - for beginners

There are blood worms and there are sand worms (and lots of other worms). Blood worms can be pumped, I know where the Mitchell river flows into Jones bay at Eagle point but I'm not aware of other locations. Sand worms can be found at many surf beaches at low tide but a different technique is require...

Re: Wheel bearing grease nipple

In the picture posted it looks like they are using regular style bearing seals, which is common on boat trailers in America. In Australia we use a different style we call "marine bearing seals" which focus on keeping the water out of the bearing more than the keeping the grease in it. It s...
