  2. Lowrance Hook 2

    Hi mate. I have a hook4 on my casting deck and it’s a good little unit for the price. Easy to use. The only negative is I’ve found lowrance transducers to be more difficult to get a good reading than other brands on the market.
  3. Nice article @Drop Bear. I was taught to look for the ‘rusty’ colouring underneath.
  4. Fourby And Fishing Get Together Cancelled

    Definitely don’t change it for me. With 3 kids under 6 I can’t commit to much. U guys hold it when u want and I’ll do my best to make it
  5. Fourby And Fishing Get Together Cancelled

    Nice work @ellicat and thanks for organising! I’ll unfortunately have to be a maybe at this stage. I have a fishing comp on the Sunday and am heading to the Redcliffe 4x4 show at some stage that weekend to hopefully get a deal on a lift kit and bullbar. Just remember that u can only get a weekly permit for Bribie. So if u r only going for the day u r up for roughy $47. Compared to North Shore $13 permit + $7 ferry each way + driving time to get there.. hopefully I can work something out and make it for the day.
  6. New Tow Rig

    Thanks @kmcrosby78. Nothing better than driving along a beach!! It’s all about tyre pressures and having the right recovery gear to get yourself out. Then u don’t have to rely on other people and their worn out gear. Check out the “I got bogged at Inskip” Facebook page. That will teach u everything not to do!! Maybe a AFO overnighter or day trip up the beach is in order???
  7. New Tow Rig

    Unfortunately no matter what the make, someone is always going to get a lemon. I did 90000km with only two little things covered by warranty. I have heard of a couple of people having larger issues up around the 180000km mark. Now that it was out of warranty I would rather put money into a new Ute than fixing any problems which could arise with the previous one. i was really impressed with the mazda and it absolutely loved the beach, it would chew up anything I threw at it. Hopefully the Colorado with 500nm of torque with be even better.
  8. Thanks MSB, yes pony fish not diamond trevally. I know those gutters you are speaking of. I do most of my fishing around there. Almost guanteed a feed if fishing there with fresh, live bait. im sure I’ll see u out there at some stage.
  9. New Tow Rig

    I was thinking Ironman foam cell. anyone have any thoughts or opinions?
  10. The first Toorbul Fishing Club monthly comp was held on Sunday. My target was whiting. I fished with my two eldest kids and it was tough going early. Undersize grunter, moses perch and bream were constantly coming over the side. Mix in a few rays, long toms and a shovel nose and i didnt have time to sit down. Each bait which sat for a few minutes was being smashed by Diamond Trevally. They are everywhere in the middle of the passage and have been for months and are getting quite annoying. Finally, the whiting came on the bite and we boated 9 within 30mins. We ran out of time and had to head down to the weigh-in. Some really nice fish and few decent snapper were caught (boundaries are coochin ck to bongaree jetty). Pics can be found on their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Toorbul-Fishing-Club-Inc-290853871277564/. I ended up missing out on the largest whiting by 2 grams There is always next month! The club is always looking for new members. Adult membership $20 for the year (mens A grade, B grade, ladies), Juniors $10 and nippers (under 10) $5. There are currently no juniors fishing but good to see a huge number of nippers getting out there with their parents. The club work on a handicap system and have cash prizes at each comp. Learning how to scale
  11. New Tow Rig

    I had been thinking about trading in my Bt50 after it had run out of warranty a few months ago but no other dual cabs were really jumping out at me. The Mazda was an awesome ute and had taken me everywhere on and offroad that i wanted to go. I was worried I would buy something not a good as what i had and be kicking myself. So the search was on and after looking at every dual cab out there i ended up buying a Colorado while Holden were offering the 7 year factory warranty. The new model is a huge improvement over their previous model and has been getting very good reviews. So far Im happy with it and not really missing anything from the Mazda. The build process has begun and hopefully ill pick up a good deal on a lift kit and bullbar at the redcliffe 4x4, camping and boat show next month. I want to get it all decked out before a mid year trip to fraser.

    nice one @fishinfox . Were you fishing between coochin and hussey ck. I'm almost certain I saw you out there and was anchored above you on the flats at one stage in the boat pictured below.
  13. Nice one @MSB . I agree Misson Point is an awesome spot and even better that it's only accessible by boat. I live in Glass House and often put the boat in at Roys and head down for the kids to go for a swim. heaps of grunter and annoying diamond trevally around at the moment
  14. Annoying Boat Beep - Please Help!

    My last boat had an 2004 two stroke merc. Everyone including marine mechanics advised me to disconnect the oil injection and go to premix as it just can’t be trusted on a motor of that age. U won’t know it’s stopped working until the motor goes BANG!
  15. south queensland Who Is Heading Out 11th And 12th

    Yep, launching at mooloolaba coastguard at 5:30. Probably fishing Murphy’s and a few marks around there. Good luck.
