Re: Tasmanian fishing license money is better use then VIC, it snapper reseaching

I believe lure action is what gets their attention rather than the color. Depending on depth and how the fish look on the sounder, I might use a paddletail or curltail lure; I'll alter the retrieve as well from aggressive jerks on heavy jigheads, to slow-sink and dead-stick using 1/12 or less weight...

I'm going along one not up and down. Up and down with thick knotted ropes is actually nowhere near as hard as getting along a flat vertical surface.
Would you be hanging from a rope to do the drilling?

Re: Sinking re-bar into a cliff

I've done a lot of rock climbing and setting permanent fixtures into rock...personally I preferred to use Expansion Bolts.

Re: Re-entry onto a Kayak - Options?

If you're using an inflatable PFD, you'll need to practice climbing on with it inflated. When the PFD is inflated it's way more difficult/awkward to get back on due to the increase in size.
