Went to buy a spare spool for my expo 5500h so I could run 30lb / 50lb, was $350 bucks. Got a new Gosa 14xg for $351, now spooled with 30lb Tasline.

Am planning an epic trip for February dependant on border closures etc that should result in a hand full of new rock species.

Will target a marlin off the rocks in march / april at JB.
Where is JB?
Take lots of pictures and videos, hopefully you'll get a marlin or two. Keen to see the action.

I bought a second hand paddle. Not really for fishing just something lighter and more suited for some fitness training. It’s a Meek type A in a mid size. Got it just over half the new price for one of these. So now on top of the std 20 to 40 km I paddle each week end while fishing lI can get out through the week on my sea kayak for some fitness training

Hopefully whiting on lures.

If i got a spare $10k, I wouldn't mind to get this. Nice little boat for me and a mate. And maybe take the mrs every now and then.

Not bad for the bath tub..

If you read the discription i think you will see the owner worked that out pretty quickly himself too.

Yeah, pretty small. I like the 4m or the 4.5m i think, the one with center console. But way more expensive

I’m looking to get a tinny by the end of the year. Nothing elaborate, maybe 4 meters plus a sounder. Limited land based options in and around Venus Bay are frustrating me, definitely need to get out and explore Anderson’s inlet and the rest of Gippsland.
