  1. The Right Boat.

    @kmcrosby78 did Youngy say anything about berley while whiting fishing? For the last 6 months I have been trying it while fishing for whiting but I think i might stop. I feel like it's bringing more undersize bream to the boat and I usually cast sideways and let the bait drift with the tide. thoughts?
  3. south queensland Got Crabs?

    yeah the dog was only there to try and sneak a feed of crab.
  4. south queensland Got Crabs?

    After catching a sand crab on a line a couple of weeks ago, my son has been nagging me to put the pots in. I haven't put them in for ages because it means putting the boat in two days in a row as I try to let them soak for 2 high and 2 low tides. Being on holidays there really wasn't any excuses so we put the pots in Friday and pulled them out Saturday. We spread them from just north of Coochin to the mouth of Hussey Ck. We ended up with 6 legal Sandies from two pots which were placed in the middle of the passage on drop off from sand bars. Any pots further towards mangroves had undersize muddies.

    We went over on the Tangalooma boat and booked through them so didn't have to organise a pass. I was turned away from the resort early this year just after they started the passes. Apparently you need to go online and book one the day before. They are free.

    yeah @Old Scaley they do well, although maybe only one or two wins this year. The club has a really good handicap system of -5pts for each win, which shares the prizes around. My 5 fish this comp got done by another guys 1 fish. He now has the same handicap as me going into the next comp. Yes private school @kmcrosby78. I did a few years with EQ so i know what u r talking about your right @Drop Bear just amazing and the feed at Tangas was quite impressive and surprisingly well priced. I have heard how run down the place is. I didn't see the accommodation but what i did see was well looked after. Im not a Toorbul local, but if Ken and Mick do the comps i would know them.

    Our staff breakup for the term (yes another school teacher) was last Friday and we spent the day at Tangalooma. A early 4:30 start up the coast and down the highway to Pinkenba. The trip was booked at Easter so it was just pure luck that we had beautiful weather. Snorkelling the wrecks was quite impressive with some bream easily over 50cm. An amazing lunch followed as well as a few drinks. It has certainly made me want to dust off the snorkelling gear and take my boat over more regularly this summer. Sunday I had another Toorbul Fishing Club's Monthy Comp. Up early and on the water around 5:30am. Calm conditions again and a few legal bream came over the side. About 1hr later I heard a roar coming up the passage, which was wind and we got hit by strong winds for the rest of the morning. We managed a few more legal fish and a sand crab while hiding amongst the islands. My daughter ended up winning the Nippers (Juniors) category as well as the Junior membership draw.

  11. Correct Application Of Sikaflex. Help Needed.

  12. Correct Application Of Sikaflex. Help Needed.

    thanks guys. I have heard of Duralac. Ill have to get some some and redo all the screws. cheers
  13. I have just taken screws out of the transom of my boat to fit a new transducer and found electrolyse present. The battery is only connected when the boat is in use and i applied a lot of Sikaflex to the hole and screws when i first put them in. When putting the screws in wouldn't it push the Sikaflex out from between the thread? How do you prevent this? I put the screws in when the Sikaflex was wet. I have read online that someone waits to the Sikaflex is nearly dry before putting the screw in. Any help would be appreciated.
