  1. Tackle Box Set Up

    I would also add a few bait jigs to ellicat's list.
  2. Advice Quintrex 7000 Yellowfin Hardtop

    Thank you for the advice. I live in North Lakes and would appreciate the company's name.
  3. Hi I am looking into purchasing a new boat and have been looking at the Quintrex 7000 Yellowfin Hardtop like the one pictured. Has anyone has any experiences with these boats or does anyone own one that can provide me with an opinion? Thank you for your help.
  4. I was lucky enough to go salmon fishing in Sweden and we used 12 foot rods with the abu ambassador series reels. Worked very well and light on the thumb. Fished all day casting cast after cast with no problems. I would look into getting something similar.
  5. Adding Bling (more Pics)

    Would you be willing to share the website address? Looks good and I may do something similar.
  6. What Size Rod?

    All depends on your target fish but I can recommend Diawa Surf rods for general purpose. Well priced and come in a good range of lengths and line weights. Generally Rock and surf rods are 12 foot. The Sensor Wave surf rod series are designed as a great all-round lightweight surf rod series, perfect for fishing from rocky shores, beaches or piers with lures or bait.
  7. Dynabait!!!!

    Mate sorry I don't recall it was some time ago and I haven't seen a packet since. I think all the instructions are on the packaging but I think you soak it until soft (not long at all). I did the whole packet as I was out for the day.
  8. Dynabait!!!!

    I have tried the dehydrated squid and it was awesome. Snapper loved it.
  9. Prawns have started

    What sounder is that? Awesome pic!
  10. Stradbroke: Rat Kings & Big Bream

    Angus - Could you give us a breakdown of the setups and plastics you were using? I see a Stradic and a Sustain.
  11. VHF Radio Course

    You don't need a licence to have the radio or listen to the radio, only to use it.
  12. New Wreck in Moreton Bay

    Hi Just wondering if anyone has the GPS mark (or a general area) for the wreck that was sunken in the bay today? Cheers
  13. Cricket in South Africa.

    Just wondering where the clever comments have gone?
  14. Hi Could anyone please point me to a good yabbie bank in the Bribie or Redcliffe/Scarborough area? I had a look at Bribie over the weekend but was only able to get a few very small ones. Any help will be great.
  15. fishing sand flats for flatties,vibration lures

    I have found that the slightly bigger vibes and blades in a red colour (or red some place on the lure) do well on flatties. For other species the natural colours and smaller sizes do better. Just my theory.
