Re: Squid Size/Numbers

I've found the squid will only stay on for a short window when I anchor down, so I've tried drifting recently and found I get more numbers over time, but less in one burst.

Re: Crab catching at Lakes Entrance

The jetty in front of the post office is full of the European shore crabs. No bag limit on them either, take as many as you can they are a pest. Last year I was getting 10+ crabs every 5-10mins with 1 net. I just use them for the flavour. Cook it with prawns/mussels in a seafood pasta with a white w...

Re: Help using fish finder

Just tested it yesterday, turned the depth to manual and played with the zoom and that did the trick. Even sounded up a few very clear arches which im guessing was either dusky morwong or squid in around 7m of water.

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: Squid Gaff help

You can DIY it. Just grab a cheap telescopic rod off ebay and stick a squid prong to the end of it.

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...
