Re: Help using fish finder

There's actually no surface clarity settings on this model. But i might try the zoom to skip the surface or mess with the sensitivity. I had it all set on auto. Have to wait for another nice day to test it out on the water

Re: Bait, Burley and Fluorocarbon?

Yellow line is useless in shallow water. I tested it with dad on salmon using bait, the clear line was catching them non stop, yellow line never got touched even after a few bait changes. Switched the same rod over to another reel and instant fish on. Are you talking about yellow braid mate? Nah ma...

Re: Docklands 5th August 2018

Re: Metung September

Just went last week. Small trevally around the slipway jetty and micro bream only, not really worth it. You might want to try the beaches - good salmon schools busting up.
