Re: Diver killed by speeding boat

Saw an article on the ABC confirming they had dive bouys and flags. The flags on those floats aren't very big and they can be knocked over by waves so you'd see nothing more than the orange float.

Re: New 2019 Yellowfin

Re: The new Stradic......

Good day I'm about to ask a really uneducated question. Why is a high gear ratio such a drawback. Can't you just wind slower? (I'm sure there's an obvious reason so I'm interested to find out). Cheers, Col. Lower gear ratios offer more torque when fighting large fish and where raw line retrieval pe...

Thanks croe for the advice. I did a little googling and couldn't find any reported issues regarding spinnerbait skirts, so still interested to hear if anyone has first hand experienced issues (or no issues) with storage of skirts and zmans.
