Hahaha i dont know if you meant that to be funny or not but i laughed out loud at that.

Good work

It's true though. Ellies get caught at Lang Lang, so take the boat to Lang Lang. Squid get caught at Mt Martha so park the boat right in front of DougieK's favorite squid spot there. And so on.


Just watch out for the 100gram raider whizzing past the stern, and collecting a couple of your jigs...

Im not sure yet wether a boat outing might be on tbe cards. Both a novuces and ill end up going mad on the boat. At least landbased might mKe it a bit easier.

Thanks to those who have offered but im just paranoid they might damage it. So id rather not destroy someone elses gear.

Tbe kmart rods seem cheap enough. I have reels just need the rods at this stage.


I got mine on ebay for like $5 each lol
Do dont care if they brake mate

Na there like 8 years old lol. Just been sitting in mums shed for years colecting webs.
When i went threw a phase of improving the boat but they didnt really work as out riggers too soft. So bought them cheap lol.
I use to buy heaps of rods for under $ 5 and if i didn't like them take them.to cash converters and get more then i paid.

I have 2 good overhead surf rods.
1 is a butterworth blank custom built thats 8kg custom made to match with abu 7000 and a 12kg custom rod my dad made that matches a abu 10000 that i kept but never use lol
