Re: Electric 4WD?

The Teslas outperform pretty much everything else at this point. A performance electric 4wd is not far off in the future. I'd love to be able to solar charge a proper off roader but I'd guess that's a long, long way away. The political talk amounts to nothing more than a scare campaign really, both ...

Re: Gunnas wind

A NNW moderate is forecast for sat morning. Wondering g whether its worth going in this wind. Been a while since went so can't remember winds last time You might be ok but it's a decent crosswind. If the swell is low try and keep the line in the water to avoid massive arcs that make it hard to hook...

Re: Gunnas wind

We get down from time to time. Honestly since we started LBGing we do much less beach spinning and much more rock fishing, plus he's spending a fair bit of time boat fishing these days. Get yourself a 1.5oz GT Icecream from Busted for some surface action. They are unbelievable and have replaced the...

Re: Gunnas wind

Any light wind is ok if you're lure is heavy enough.

N NE E is all fine at pretty much any strength. Anything else you get big bellies in the line that make it extremely difficult to hookup.

One of Melbourne's iconic land based anglers f&cked up hard when he had his website made with photos directly uploaded from his phone.

Re: I desperately need help with fishing!!

Some basic advice for all anglers. Use small hooks most of the time. If you are getting bites and no hookups your hook is probaably too big or the point and barb are hidden in the bait.

Re: Is this site becoming redundant?

Also re the forum. There is no way I would ever post some of the discussion on FB that I post on here. As much flak as they get sometimes the mods generally do an acceptable job of weeding out the trolls and f$ckwits that seem to inhabit the rest of the internet. Also, while I am in no way unfindabl...
