Re: C31 Catch & Coock

It just has the shittiest audio of any show on TV, to the point it drives me nuts so can't watch it at times.

How may times can you watch a bloke fishing for flatties and bream with soft plastics anyway?

Re: Missing Kayaker 29/7/17

We carry tons of sinkers and wear waders. Will extra 500 grams kill you? Its more the physical size rather than the weight. A small PLB is more likely to be a permanent fit and forget attachment to a PFD. This is essential to kayakers who should always have a PFD on when on the water anywhere. Even...

New fashion statement....ditch the fancy phones and attach an epirb on the belt. Leather case optional


Generally too big for personal attachment due to bigger battery. For "man overboard" situations dont need longest duration as it will be too late anyway.

Re: Jam Jerrup Fishing scouting walk.

If you want to fish by the car park, it needs to be over high tide, same as lang Lang.

Re: Missing Kayaker 29/7/17

A PLB should be mandatory for anyone solo in any craft over say 500m from shore. A kayak becomes invisible from shore very quickly No need for all that gear for people playing on the beach with kayaks etc Which is were all those little ones belong. Not every kayak user is a fisho bent on disappearin...

Re: Missing Kayaker 29/7/17

IMO every kayaker who is out of swimming range from land should have a waterproof floating handheld VHF. https://www.whitworths.com.au/main_itemdetail.asp?cat=114&item=69790&intAbsolutePage=1 http://www.altronics.com.au/p/x0660-70-channel-5w-high-power-vhf-marine-transceiver/ Re licencing n...

Re: Missing Kayaker 29/7/17

TBH a PFD would still probably not have saved him. If it took 4 days to find his bright yellow kayak. If he had stayed afloat they would have had less chance of finding him than they did the kayak. Without being able to survive prolonged immersion and some means of communication or location then you...

Re: Missing Kayaker 29/7/17

kayakers need to get a licence to be on the water i think, just like boats and jetski users. too many idiots trying to go the cheap way into getting on the water and risking their lives. Licensing is about knowing the rules rather than kayaking skills. Unfortunately not enough getting into it reali...
