Re: Tough weekend on WP 18-19/5/19

Plenty of Whiting swimming around the bottom at Reef Island to Dickies Bay on Saturday - we watched them swim around it was hard to talk them into biting though

got a small feed ( 5 between 30 and 35 cm ) but the Leather jackets and toads were quicker on the bait

Re: Frustrating

Should there be a rule for water temp and thermal wetsuits or something more likely education would help - how many boat fishos get information on Hypothermia or have even thought about it even most kayak fisho dont have a lot of idea - in some cases it's even hard to get some to wear a life jacket...

Re: First trip to Lang Lang

Nice kayak and set up what kayak is that? And well done on the gummies and schoolies. They are both Lovig Kahawai the old model with out the seat, I got them on special for around $600 each. Then I've added a boat load of extras to get them to what you can see. I like the rod holder set up myself

Re: Interesting could save a life

I saw this the other day. In western port even the strongest swimmers will struggle making it back to the boat especially in the colder months. I believe life jackets should be mandatory in western port so anyone overboard has half a chance even if they drift away there is a good chance another boa...

Re: Electric 4WD?

It seems Bill Shorten wants us to embrace electric vehicles with Labor having a policy target of 50% of new car sales being electric by 2030. Cheers Ango by 2030 maybe electric may be viable - yes there are some electric jiggers around today by 2030 there may be a way to quickly charge them in as m...

Re: STILL NO BREAMS

They're the kind of fish that offer just the right balance of challenge and reward that keep both kids and experienced anglers alike smiling. Bream like hideouts in areas that are a bit sheltered from the current and where there is structure, cover, and readily available food. So, places like jetti...

Re: Kayak Fishing Werribee From werribee river

Yup, same, still trying to figure that out. Paddling with the tide is easy, but I'm struggling paddling against the tide. I was trying to go fast though. Either I don't have much upper body strength and poor hand paddling technique or my kayak isn't great. Hence, I'm pretty cautious kayaking in the...

Re: Kayak Fishing Werribee From werribee river

I went out Altona on a flat day (5kmh wind) and I think it was 60% moon. I went out pretty far to around 7-8m water. Paddling back against the run out tide was a work out, and that was on 5kmh wind day. Same with Campbell's Cove. just thinking here a 1.25 km paddle ( about 8 meters ) with no wind a...

Re: Scotty Kayak Stabilizers

Questions Do the Americans waters get as choppy as ours and do they take them out to sea? And what water condition are they designed for? A lot of those US kayaks are designed to be peddle powered bass boats and are typically used on lakes. yes that nails it on the head - and not just there pedal b...
