Re: First time Werribee river

You launching at the entrance and working your way upstream? You can park in the car park between the jetty and playground and slide it in across the narrow beach. Can be weedy lower down around the moorings. Around the first bend is a popular spot. Just work your way upstream. Deepish hole near the...

Re: Best all rounder rod and reel?

Something mid weight with a stout butt to withstand a big fish but soft tip so you can still catch small stuff. Something like a 7-8 foot ugly stick. You will loose sensitivity for soft plastics and small lures. But then you are talking compromise. The SP style rods are likely to snap when you start...

Re: fish finder help

First decision is whether you want to fork out for gps maps or just a straight sounder. Lowrance hook series seem most popular for kayaks, especially the hook 4. If you are fishing westernport then having maps is even more useful

Re: Eildon

I find pasternosters a pain in fresh water as they snag up more and re rigging is more complicated than a running sinker which is simply tying a new hook on.

Re: Fishing spots?

A known spot that has produced in the past increases the percentages. Familiarity with the spot increases the percentage further. It is always worth giving them a shot while in the area, but dont put all your eggs in one basket, otherwise you wont find other hot spots. Its often just a lucky bite th...

Re: torradin boat ramp

Important thing is it snakes out and you really have to stick to the channel. There is an arial photo on a sign there that shows it snaking over to the far bank then out.

Re: small reddies @ Sugarloaf

Just something to note: redfin are very similar to yellow perch found in the US. Perch tend to reproduce a lot and in a lake where there are no predators this results in stunting, as you have a ton of them competing for resources. I'm not necessarily suggesting eating them but culling the smaller o...

Re: Local lake produces

I think quite a few of the small local lakes have reddies if you make a serious attempt to target them

Re: Does a rods line rating matter?

if you get a tip wrap it negates the reels drag, and it is all on the rod, throw in some high sticking and the rod snaps. Its all a matter of being aware and being careful if you know you have strong line loaded. I have busted a couple of rods on the kayak as a result of 15lb braid on a 2-4kg SP rod...

Always had the same result there. Billions of tiny toadies queuing up to hit your bait as soon as it hits the water
