  1. Want To Buy A Nordic Stage Artist

    Mate I'll be back in Brisbane in 4 weeks I should have one there u can buy
  2. north queensland Wanderers 1770 - September

    That will be the perfect combo for stopping big reds.
  3. northern territory Nt Gas Rig

    I'm pretty sure that it's a non operational drill rig that came to darwin to have work done I'd say if it's getting moved it will be for a drill job which will most likely be a long long away. I could be wrong though
  4. Talica ten single speed I got mine second hand mint condition for around 400
  5. northern territory Nt Gas Rig

    Awesome part of the world up here. Looks like your making the most of it well done. I've fished that stena Clyde before it's absolutely loaded with fish. Spanish, cobia queenies and goldens to, plus a few suprises. Drop a few micro jigs down next time and you can literally catch as many queenies and Trevor's as u could be bothered catching. We found that a higher speed retrieve up through water columnwould result in Spanish over some of the less desirable species
  6. Hey mate, in my opinion I would opt for traditional overhead over a bait caster for 1770. The small handles can be a a pain especially if you were trying to stop big reds. This is only my opinion but I have a pretty heavy duty pluton combo and personally find it a royal pain for fighting reef brutes when your fishing straight up and down above the fish.Or if you head wider to some deeper grounds. Since my torsa now lives on the seabed around Sykes reef my reel of choice up there is a talica. If you can get your hands on a good condition used one you won't be disappointed. Other wise a good quality larger spin reel is my go to for stopping trout on plastics if that's your thing
  7. south queensland Heaven Raining Coral Trout

    That's awesome, when done right you can't beat a good 1770 trip for value for money, people spend that much for a charter trip of the seaway that dosnt even compare

    That's a solid bag of fish boys, well done!
  9. State Of Origin 2017

    Go maroons, last minute impulse decision yesterday arvo equals me deep in blues territory ATM , half charged in Sydney reppin qld colours, not sure why but they don't really appreciate my maroon attire.
  10. Trim Tabs

    Yeah I agree I recently had Lencos put on mine and would not be without them now when there is a bit of Chop around. Allows you to fine tune the way your boat sits for a far more comfortable ride
  11. Canopy Ideas Update With Pics Curtins On

    Recently went through this my self when converting to a hard top, be a aware about how adding any extra weight up high can change the balance of the boat. Also take into account your reach and what will be comfortable when retrieving rods from the rod holders. No one like standing on the gunnel to get the rods down. And lastly if you plan on running any wiring within the tube itself ensure the builder leaves draw wires inside during the build to save you a massive headache. That is about all I can think of from my personal expierince

    Nice work lads, some great fish caught. I reckon you'll end up being a 1770 regular with your new rig!
  13. Prawns White Spot Disease Outbreak

    Does this mean all forms of prawining are now banned in the bay as well as the original areas?
  14. Stolen Boat - Kenmore Area

    Will keep an eye out mate, bloody gronks did the same to me a few years back too
  15. 1770 Bound

    Nice one guys hope you smash it up there , if my boat wasnt needing a service I would have gone up as well. So jealous
