Re: Port Welshpool offshore crossing

Quick tip for Welshpool. When 5 ways and the entrance is a little sloppy, you can cut across the bank and stay right out of the slop. It will be relatively calm in the shallows because of the lack of current. Instead of going via the yellow line, go via the red line in the photo. Stick just on the s...

Re: Port Welshpool offshore crossing

The Corner Inlet Entrance certainly is not a bar. Bar or no bar, it was rough and the fact that you can only get in and out through this tiny corridor makes it even more difficult. See the photo below, in red the path I took and orange my return path. In black area areas where big waves were formin...

Soak the strips or rings in milk overnight.

To get tender squid you need to either flash fry it for about 15 seconds or slow cook em, but I find it quite difficult to get squid cooked perfectly myself.

Re: Game Fishing Equipment - What do you use?

Thanks scott, so was your previous gaff made out of stainless steel and you are currently using cast stainless steel? Hookem makes a variety of gaffs and meat hooks, some fixed, some detach and some FLYING?!? http://www.hookem.com.au/assets/images/uploads/Hookem%20Website%20CATALOGUE%202016%20to%20...

Re: Game Fishing Equipment - What do you use?

you want 2 heavy duty gaffs to haul in a barrel. 1 long one and one short one, minimum

I straightened one of my gaffs last season doing just that.

Re: Mako Tactics

Doesn't really matter what burley you use.

If you want you can just buy or make a heap of burley bombs and put em in a crate trailing out the back.

But cubing pillies and/tuna/salmon will also help.

Soak a rag in tuna oil and have that in the water as well.

The run out to hogan isn't that bad, in good weather 40 mins or so past cliffy.

There is no protection out that far though if the weather changes, long way to punch back before you can duck inside the prom
