Rumoured to have been put there by a well known charter boat owner, or is this another one?

Does the charter operators name happen to rhyme with fat blunt?


Didn't know Winga did charters

What's happened to the lights at the mouth of the Patto?

Hi fellas,

I've just noticed that the two beacons/lights on ploes at the mount of the Patterson River appear to have gone from the ends of the rock-walls.

Does anyone know why? Have they been relocated?

Cheers,

Mike.

Re: Private health insurance

I'm afraid I have to disagree with you there, based on not only my family and own personal experience, but also on close friends and their relatives. Whenever I've been to hospital (more than a dozen times) with both my kids, myself and my wife, we've always had great care and the medical staff are ...

Re: Stuff that happens while fishing

@pistol,

Great stuff - well, I guess a lot of stuff is a bit more amusing when a bit of time has passed!

It almost sounds like you should take up a less hazardous hobby!

Cheers,

Mike.

Q: Spinfisher V owners - best 'all-round' size?

Hi Fellas, Simple question: Which Penn Spinfisher V would be the best 'all-rounder' size? I know that there's really no such thing as an all-round reel for any use, but which would be able to cover most bases? I'm thinking of the 4500, 5500 or 6500, as I think the 3500 would be too small and the 7, ...

Re: Do I really need a 15 or 16ft surf-rod and long-cast reel?

Lots of good advice here guys - thanks for that... Doesn't make my decision any easier though :-) I fish Woolamai a lot and when the sea is a bit rough it's sometime hard to get far enough out to reach the gutters that are still relatively calm (hence, should hold more fish). I do appreciate that th...

Do I really need a 15 or 16ft surf-rod and long-cast reel?

Hi guys, I'm starting to get back into land-based fishing and will be spending more time surf and rocks fishing. I have a couple a 12ft surf rods, but have an itch for a longer rod (don't we all?). However, is there any benefit to be gained from the extra 3 or 4ft? The Okuma X-factor 16ft graphite r...
