Re: Moving axles forward advice.

I had a 5 m Quinnie Fishmaster with a 70 HP Evinrude for a long time so very similar to your rig. The Quinnie towed well with about 45-50 kg on the tow ball. I also support the idea of shifting the winch post as long as you do not get a lot of overhang at the stern of the boat. You should not have ...

Re: Buying a boat

Positives of open boats - more flexibility in types of fishing. Lure casting ect. Negatives - you are restricted by the weather. Any sort of wind and you will get wet. I sold my center console after having it for 10 years fishing all over the WA coast. Most of my fishing was lure based (had Minn kot...

Re: Daiwa Aird X 2500SH

I have the Aird 2500 and have given it a good thrashing over the last 2-3 years. The reel still performs well but looks rough cosmetically.

Re: Hazelwood to open for fishing 9th Dec

Keen for a look but worries about the crowds as land based will be my only option.

Re: battery questions for electric trolling motor

I run 125 amp hour deep cycle batteries for my 55lb bow mount.
