The Mighty Bream

So was out the other night with the kid and we hooked into a nice fat breambo in about a foot of water. Well I tell you it didn't half pull some string! You could see the rooster tail zigging and zagging all over the shop and the sienna was practically smoking! Everyone knows bream are weight for we...

Re: Please give me advice

Sounds like bad luck but hard to know without more detail. I'd say first off concentrate on one or two species and one or two techniques until you get confident with them. Constantly chopping and changing won't help you learn any quicker. It's hard to know what you're doing but two common mistakes a...

Re: Midlife crisis?? Advice needed.

Hey mate these are my top picks for giving a decent foundation to work off theory wise. You would get away with just fishing soft plastics and finesse lure fishjng tho to give a broad foundation on lure and soft plastic fishing.

Re: Brand new angler after some advice - Melbourne

If you are just after small/med bread and butter species around the bay and local estuaries/rivers then a 7ft graphite 2-4kg rod with a 2500 reel will cover most things youll most likely encounter locally - flatties, bream, whiting, pinkies, trevs. Spool the reel with 6 or 8lb braid and run a 4 - 8l...

Re: Midlife crisis?? Advice needed.

Re: Cornacarpio's Cumulative Carp Culling Caper

A plastic syringe with then end cut off makes a perfect bread punch. If you've got kids then the ones that come with kids Panadol are perfect for the job ;) Does doing it with a syringe shape the bread differently than rubbing it into a ball ? Sorry hornet - missed your reply. I stole this idea and...
