  1. Another awesome vid guys. Love the double header on big trout!
  2. You are SE Asia?? Big call... Have you found Pelagicus over there yet???
  3. And here i was thinking mrs Dino must have hacked your account and started posting based on that title... good to see you back out and about though mate.
  4. I'd be keeping that spot in the gps too Wayne... with those species must be some good ground there.
  5. Well that's fine kelvin, I'm sure it won't change the result...
  6. Quality esky that Wayne, nice one!
  7. Pretty sure that's a bullseye @kmcrosby78 no, it's not a darts joke, that's actually what they're called. I've caught several around mud in days gone by. re the bent hook - giant toadfish? They do weird things to hooks.
  8. Ummm... bass goes to @Dinodadog (north) tailor to @Luke Landrunner (north) snapper to @Old Scaley (south) bream to me (south) flathead to me (south) so yeah, that's all we've got. And it's all we need!
  9. Hey mate always have my inflatable one on when in the big water. The spots I go aren't a long way out from the beach either which is a bonus but stuff happens. Last trip out there in sept last year I spent over an hour chasing around what ended up being a 8kg mac tuna, by the time I landed it I wasn't in Kansas anymore, about 2.5km from where I started and at least 1.5km from the island. Some guys in a 6.5m platey asked if I was ok on their way past which was nice, managed to make it home without incident. re @Sparksie point, the fact that three members were happy to offer up their craft no questions asked with no real notice is just awesome and is what I believe this site is about. I asked the question a bit reluctantly as I generally hate borrowing stuff off other people and was not expecting anything like the response I got. @Luvit @rayke1938 @kmcrosby78 Very generous indeed gents and very greatly appreciated by this member as it opens up a whole other world of fishing possibilities for me for the next week. thanks again benno
  10. Hmmmm... beach launch, open ocean and no other vessel to come to my aid... ah stuff it, might as well drown warm and happy! note : to all the kiddies out there, drunk kayaking is not recommended by anyone other than kriso
  11. Thanks very much for the generous offers @kmcrosby78 and ray just a bit concerned about electronics and salty stuff. Yet to go upside down but there's a first time for everything!
  12. @Luvit - just trying to organize with @ellicat around possible collection, will be in touch (if he hasn't already) @rayke1938 - just a bit concerned about the electrical bits in the salty stuff?
  13. @rayke1938 and @Luvit you guys are f awesome...
  14. Hi all, might be a long shot but thought I'd throw it out there. I'm heading over to moreton next week and was wondering if anyone had a kayak sitting around collecting dust that I may be able to borrow for a week. Happy to work with the beer economy or similar as recompense. Only requirement would be that it floats, can hold a larger adult and preferably has a rod holder. Can pick up anywhere in the Brisbane area. thanks in advance. cheers benno
  15. @christophagus - can you please confirm the dates?
