Re: Telescopic Rods

I use the 9' Shimano Beastmaster Travel and its never let me down, trialled a few telescopic and never found one that had the same feel. From memory it was quite cheap too. I found the 9' to be quite versatile too, light spinning off the rocks, piers, etc..

Re: Hiring of fishing and camping gear

Great idea to help people out but i do see you encountering a lot of problems.. You'll probably end up making a few bucks until one thing goes wrong and you'll end up losing all of your profit..

Re: New to the area and fishing

I'd do some research online or on the forum to make sure you got the rights rigs/setup for the species your chasing, as a rough guide, things like; Snatchers for Whiting 2.5 - 3.5 Jigs for Squid Light Running Sinkers for Pinkies/Snapper The correct Rods/Reels also help - budget permitting of course....

Re: Family friendly pier fishing

i reckon the tackle shop wasn't far off.

This time of the year i'd be fishing a simple light running sinker with pillie...

Re: Port Melbourne fishing!

Chase Pinkies, Look for SW - wind direction, go the the local piers (Lagoon, Kerferd, Station), have a chat to a few people, a paternoster or running sinker with pilchard, fish peak times - sunrise / sunset..

Re: going out saturday in the boat

Sorry about the late reply, it was a good ride along the coast, no more then about 20minutes.. Stuck with the plan, found a few good size flatties early 7-8m between StKilda & Sandringham, couldn't find the squid.. Battled with a few Eagle Rays, Banjo's, etc.. out a bit deeper (13-15m), nothing ...

Re: going out saturday in the boat

Ill head out from St Kilda towards Black Rock at some point, drift the afternoon for Squid and Flatties over some weed and sand flats, do sunset for pinkies in 7-10m and head out deeper/13-15m for whatever (bigger) takes the bait for a few hours into the night..
