Re: Rovex Squid Wrangler review

Hi All Wanting to try out a light weight, graphite, Egi style rod on a budget I purchased a Rovex Squid Wrangler and tested it out for the first time on the w/end. As It will be used predominately from a boat I chose the shortest model with a length of 7'6" and teamed it up with a Daiwa Excele...

Re: flinders whiting

Good catch, it's always nice to get a few Lj's when fishing for Whiting, IMO they're just as good to eat.

Re: Anchor Winch Suggestions

I wouldn't bother with a gypsy style winch and a decent small drum like a GX1 will be around 2k if you can't install it yourself. I installed one on a 4.4m mainly for the safety factor as it's an open boat with a casting deck with minimal bow rails and I fish solo a lot at night.

Re: split grip vs full grip rods

Ugly Stik SP761 LFT, 7'6" single piece, has a light, whippy action great for whiting but with plenty of beef if needed and good size grips.

Re: Garmin 551s

Looks like you have done a fair bit of work on your boat over winter....looking forward to seeing some action shots this season! Yes there's a few new additions, I love playing in the boat when it's too miserable to take it out but it gets expensive. Next on the list is Tef-Gelling every screw, nut...

Re: Show us your purchases!

Bad news for my physiotherapist... I finally found someone good and convenient to put an anchor winch in (Lone Star GX1) Thanks to Trumpeter for putting me onto John and the guys at Mainline Marine in Williamstown, really happy with their friendly & honest service. Lone Star GX1.jpg Looks great...
