How do arrows taste compared to cala? And are they any better bait wise?
i havent tasted them yet mate, but id say considering most commercially available calamari are infact arrows, id say it would be fine.
if your currying or doing something similar where lots of other stuff is added then id say it would hardly be noticable.
been told they are a bit more tougher than calamari, again i havent had it yet, so can only assume the others are right

arrows are prefferd bait for kings, and the sealice and banjoes love them after the weekends beach session, apart from that i dunno.

They are definitely tougher than calamari, they go softish / limp after capture, they don't have the flavor calamari has.. I've eaten my body weight in squid in the past so I should know ! ... :bn: :rf:

I agree with hornet on this one, Calamari's taste and texture is miles better than arrows.

i will have to investigate further when i cook some up soon.

Funnily enough, i never landed a single calamari in the last 2 outings, every single one was an Arrow.

Bloody crazy, also gopro hint with voice control: if its on you can say gopro start recording and it automaticly starts.
My gopro is ancient mate. Hero lcd+ model..
If I said gopro start recording I'd come back home with fkall footage :oo:
Ah ok, ive mostly been using the hero 2018 model that is just a hero 5 black stripped down (hacked it back to a hero 5 black) and it has voice commands.
id love to get an updated model eventually.
currently have a LCD+ and a 3+ black, problem is running out of batteries, the spare batteries i have are just rubbish..
Shop in your local cashies camera section and see what they have, can find them decently priced and not be made pay out nearly 600 or so on new, all up i spent about 300 dollars with 2 cameras, 1 case and an accessorys pack off amazon.

Tgats a great deal for 2 cameras and associated accessories etc.
We're they all new?

Facebook marketplace has some great deals as well..
I've picked up a drone recently, will have to learn how to use it properly. Seems easy to handle for now.
