Re: The Donut king

Crikey Kimtown. I hope you meant "deed" not "dead"!

Re: pippies

I am puzzled by the different rules applying to pipis in NSW and Vic. In NSW the daily limit is 50, for bait only, and they cannot be taken further than 50 metres from the high tide mark, ie, they cannot be removed from the beach. The "bait only" rule is ostensibly to protect people from t...

BCF ads.

Good day,
Is it only me or do other members find those recent BCF ads with the group of marchers really pointless and irritating?

Compliments of the season to all, Col.

Re: An Apology

Good day Will, I can understand your exasperation and disappointment but, as others have said, you have nothing to feel guilty about. As a coastal New South Welshman I always looked forward to your posts. They gave me an insight into places and species and techniques which I would otherwise have had...

Re: Merimbula

Sorry mate. Can't help you much. I lived in Merimbula over 20 years ago but fished mainly beach and estuary. Some other members might be able to help and nearby places like Eden should have similar indications.

Good luck, Col.

Re: Merimbula

:oops: Good day Kimtown, I assume that Merimbula bay means the sea. Yes, there is reasonable access from the lake to the sea but the channel is fairly close to the rocks and can be shallow at low tide. You will see some quite large charter boats and yachts moored in the lake and they regularly negot...

Re: New PB (I Think)

Good day Dezza,
If you didn't want to take it home and measure it, why didn't you just run out a length of line, cut it to exact fish length and measure the line when you got home? Or have I missed something ?

Re: Snags on Friday..

I'm starting to feel a bit of sympathy for Kimtown. He was probably a bit harsh in his original post but I think there were some valid thoughts behind the post. Drought is a fundamental and predictable factor facing Australian farmers. There have been droughts as bad as this before - the federation ...

Re: No more 2 strokes (nearly)

I think there might be some misunderstanding here. There is no indication that two stroke motorbikes are caught by the new legislation and there is no restriction on the continued use of existing two stroke equipment. Two strokes will be around for years and rather than spell the end of two stroke s...

Re: No more 2 strokes (nearly)

As I read it, there will be three standards, based on current US regulation. * Ground based motors ( pumps, generators. mowers etc) up to 25 hp. No two strokes will meet the emissions standards. * Above ground motors ( chainsaws, line trimmers etc) which will have a less stringent emission standard,...
