Re: Whats tour favorite snapper rig?

Winter on the pinkies. Running sinker 3/0 hook. Anchor up and fish with a slack line. a very flexible rod helps keep the fish on. Let the fish take it and pull a little line. Then hold the reel and hit it to set the hook. Summer and early Autumn paternoster. 5/0 hook tension on the line and get read...

Re: Bar crossing goes wrong

If you are going to apply more power then you need to do it before the wave gets to your stern. If your stern is up and bow down power power will push the bow under and you turn into a submarine. When we are surveying the shallow entrances like Anderson's and Port Albert we get into this situation a...

Re: Bar crossing goes wrong

re-tyred have you found since Lakes has become more of a gamefish destination there have been more incidents on the Bar? The current game fishers are somewhat experienced and have decent boats.

Re: Bar crossing goes wrong

Most experience comes from making mistakes, so watching these vids and taking note is part of it. The guys that made those mistakes are much wiser now. I am cautious because I have made my share of stuff ups. To name a few of the more memorable. Sunk 40 nm out in July at night! Rolled on the bar in ...

Re: Bar crossing goes wrong

Yeah, Bugatti, you have it. It showed he was inexperienced. An inexperienced person should not use a day like that to gain experience. They should go on flat days until they learn how to setup and drive their boat over bars. If the waves are breaking where you want to go and it is your first or one ...

Re: Bar crossing goes wrong

At coastguard Lakes Ent we practice crossing through breakers, most training days. Firstly we have vessels that are self draining and buoyant enough to survive a deckload of water. Your average rec boat is neither. The basic method used is the same for all three vessels. Jetski, RIB and 3100 Noosaca...

Re: Bar crossing goes wrong

In the vid, simple, should not have been there. If you are going out to recreational fish. Never go if conditions are a bit dodgy, you are going for fun. Smashing out through breakers isn't fun. Don't do it. Regarding pro divers and fishers there is some commercial pressure, this leads to occasional...

Re: GPS troubles

OK, first run them at home for a bit to make sure they haven't just been a bit confused after the date roll over and getting moved quite a distance while off. While doing that you would need to save your marks to an SD card if they have that facility. The lowrance should. If you buy another lowrance...
