    south queensland Braid Where Do You I Start

    Land based today, I slipped on rocks and noticed my braid had broken, luckily I could grab it and pulled it all in saving my $25,lure. Thinking it ripped on the oyster shells I,rerigged and cast again only to see my lure go flying through the air into the deep, thinking it was bad knots, I loaded up another double clutch, to once again watch my hard earned sale into the drink, this time I relized it was my braid giving way, so I seen the light and retired it for the day.my initial reaction was I got bad braid from my tackle shop, but it was only it's second outing and held well on its first, so I'm figuring it something on the rod or my sedona reel, anyone got any ideas? As it was dark when I got home, I've not been able to forensically, study my rod or reel, plus the missus was hovering so thought it best to keep my lure throwing to myself lol. Cheers john

    south queensland Fishing Report With Question

    Where I found the solunar was on a site called fishingreminder, but I wasn't chasing it, just trying to write down the tides for that day, to try and keep a record. Then when I checked solunar, it was uncannily accurate. Cheers john

    south queensland Fishing Report With Question

    Thanks drop bear I agree with using past experiences, I guess it was just seeing it after the event, and it being spot on I'd gauge some thoughts. Cheers mate

    south queensland Fishing Report With Question

    Took my mate out in a hire boat at Jacobs well yesterday, fished the banks in very windy, coldish conditions, David landed a nice 60cm flatty that went against how we were going on a prawn bait, I was flicking plastics. It was tough going. With an hr to go of our time, I moved up across from the boat hire place, to let David chase some bream(he's got a slight disability) so I decided to use a daiwa double clutch hard body, just to fill time in, as I'd never had luck nor patience to persist with hard bodies, but blow me down with a feather, I started catching flatties like there was no Tommorrow, so my bream spot (I'm very amateur) turned into a gold mine of flatties. Of course this occurred with time up on the hire, my biggest went 59cm,but they were all good sized, a great day. Unusualy only caught one little one earlier in day. Well worth the trip from Toowoomba. Now my question. While looking to try and record the days conditions and trawling tide times, I came across soluner for Jacobs well, amazingly it's predictions for hot bites, Minor times, to me was absolutely spot on, almost to the minute. The rating for the day was 2stars out of 4 and said reasonable prospects etc. Just thought I'd ad this, as I stated earlier it was uncannily accurate, interested in others thoughts on these guides, especially for someone who struggles to understand all this. Ps pic doesn't include David's flatty) Cheers john

    Which Reel?

    G'day all I want to set up a second rod for soft plastics, hard bodies etc the reel I have and really like is the 2500 symetre on a raider rod, which suits me fine. It seems the symtere is not available anymore, can someone advise what it was replaced with, thanks in advance. John

    south queensland Land Based Goldy, Tweed Area

    Was windy there today, walked up from the fish shop on Kennedy drive flicking plastics, walked to a canal area with no luck, went down the canal a little way, got a tiny gt, lol. Does look good across the river, but looks impossible to get into land based, rain came in to shorten session, maybe Tommorrow. Cheers john

    south queensland Land Based Goldy, Tweed Area

    G'day I've got some time off, from the family, so heading to the goldy, perhaps Tweed area. I'm from Toowoomba so have no idea where to scope for fishing, I'd like somewhere accessible I can wander around flicking lures, etc. Is the Tweed wall ok for lures, ideally I'd like somewhere I can park easily and wander aimlessly flicking for a couple of hours. Thanks in advance guys. Cheers john ,

    south queensland Zmans Sp

    Hi, I'm just wondering if any of the more learned sp guys could check out my first attempt at the zmans, I've applied super glue to them, I was just getting a couple ready for fishing next week. It's my first attempt at them, I usually use the power bait sps, these don't seem as easy, but I'm keen to try them, any constructive advice appreciated, Cheers john
