    20mins isn’t long to fish. Keep at it. As others have said it takes a while to work out the best tide, moon phases, times of the day etc.
  4. Freedom Fishing’s Family Fishing Comp is on again at the end of the month. Held in the Sandy Straits and all proceeds go to the Sandy Strait’s Coastguard based at Tin Can Bay. Weigh in at Boonooroo. Adults $20, Kids $5. Unfortunately have a wedding that w/end so won’t be able to fish it. More details on the Freedom Fishing facebook Page.
  5. Good luck. Other options are to put in at Bribie and go up to the Caloundra 12 mile, or launch at mooloolaba and fish all the reefs up here. To be honest I haven’t fished northern Moreton Bay since I started fishing the sunny coast reefs over two years ago. This weekend for me will be another Toorbul comp in the passage.

    Rust In Trailers

    I give mine a good hose down after every trip and every few months give the trailer a spray inside and out of WD40. 2.5 yrs with my current trailer and so far zero surface rust. I also check my bearings every 6 months and either repack or change them depending on their condition. Maintenance is the key!

    This might be a bit controversial but I wouldn’t worry too much about the 5 or 6 person capacity. Happy to be proven wrong but here in qld people under 12 are only classed as 1/2 a person. I have also read (can’t remember where) that you can’t be fined for overloading your boat. You can be fined for not having a builders plate (don’t think u need a capacity label anymore) and also for not have the safety gear for all onboard, but no fine for overloading. You will however cope an ear bashing from the fisheries/water police.
  13. I would contact the previous owner and ask it he ever had that problem. He may have some tips which helped him while he owned it.

    Haven’t had any issues with it coming off sideways. I only have the Centre roller as the rear roller.

    Marks Back In The Isa

    Does the motor cavitate when turning? Turning can be harder with the motor trimmed right out. The trim annode near the prop can be adjusted to help the boat track better and so you aren’t fighting the motor. But most likely telling you stuff you already know.
