Re: Decision Made

Hi Graham, Buying in Orbost.

It's a quiet little town but has enough of the facilities we need. It's close to a ton of good fishing too!

Cheers,
Whiskers.

Re: More lost SPs and no fish

It's tough losing a lot of SP's but the upside is you're putting them into places where the fish like to hang out, (snags). A solution might be to change from conventional jig heads and rig your sp on a worm hook, (Texas rig style), where the hook point is concealed in the back of the sp. This way y...

Re: Decision Made

We spent a couple of days last week looking at houses we short listed in the Orbost area. We drove home on Thursday night. The traffic heading east on The Princess Highway was very heavy with boats, caravans and trailers all trying to get away for the long weekend. The number of vehicles with inadeq...

Re: pulley rig

It's not essential but the rig will perform better by using a pulley bead in as much as it provides a degree of separation between the sinker trace and the hook trace. I have made up a rig using a plain swivel but by doing this the hook trace is sometimes prone to twisting around the sinker trace. T...

Re: pulley rig

Whats the benefit of using a pully rig 1) By having the bait clipped just behind the sinker your rig becomes more streamlined. The result should give you up to another 20 metres in casting distance. 2) Because your bait is clipped behind the sinker it's not helicoptering about in the air and being ...

Sharks At Kilcunda

I was checking the CFA's incidents and warnings site today regarding the bushfires at Marlo when I saw a strange CFA warning of dangerous animals at Kilcunda. Clicking open the info link it seems there is a large whale carcass close to Kilcunda Beach which is attracting a lot of sharks. The report w...
