Re: Oiling drag 'washers'

They can't possibly slip. They are wedged between slotted stainless washers that do not turn. There is nothing turning them and they couldnt possibly turn anyway because they are locked in by the slots. They work by compressing and thereby apply pressure between the bottom of the spool and the plas...

drag washers are clutches and do slip or the drag wouldn't work -- I use drag grease on my carbon drag washers this lets the drag washers slip smoothly

Re: Cod Trip 2017

I'll start by saying, I will purchase a NSW licence for the trip, even though I will probably not fish in the Murray. If I'm in Victoria & fishing in NSW, can a NSW fisheries officer come into Vic to check licences ?? Can a Vic fisheries officer enforce NSW regulations ?? Beware the Bunyip Gra ...

Re: Ford Falcon FG on gas ... any feedback?

Having sold my Craptiva, we need to buy a large family car under $10K that is also gentle on the wallet at the pump. Bonus points if it can tow 1,700kg. I've been looking at the FG Falcon range on factory gas and they seem very good value for money. Aussie made so spares are readily available, spac...

Re: Victoria's only native oyster to return to help clean the bay

Just saw this article in The Age this morning, sounds like a good move. I wonder if something similar could be done in WPB because I heard that used to hold a lot of oysters in the past there's no oysters in Westernport so you can all stop looking http://i967.photobucket.com/albums/ae158/cheaterpar...

Re: 2 minute Fishing Survey

We have built a an app for fisho's called Fysho and we are still learning what the community wants and needs Olli I would have thought what most fishos need to do is turn off the phone and go fishing - I dont see how an app helps that unless it turns the phone off for you but I did the survey for y...

Re: Snapper is a gateway drug

So tell me guys…what sort of reel/rod should I be looking at getting for this kind of stuff? (shark/tuna/kingfish). we probably run a little lighter than the boating guys but my main set ups are Shimano Terez with 560 Penn slammers with 30lb braid - a mate pulled a nice little 19 kg fisn on a 460 s...

Re: Sea Sherpa North Shore Challenge 28/01/17

From what I read from Thursday (with Kieran's Tuna hookup) to the end it sounded like an awesome event. I'm hoping to be able to make it next year for NSC'18 :-D I'm still (Stirring :o_0: ) sticking to my guns and say you need more skill to fish from a yak than a boat :tongue: it was a great event ...
