  1. Catching Ox Eye Herring/ Tarpon

    3" Slider paddle tail grubs in Pearl with as light a jig head I can cast is my go to for tarpon.
  2. Dusky Flathead Update

    I have noticed the same problem with different measuring tools. For that reason, on the rare occasion I do take a fish home to eat I make sure its 2-3 cm past the minimum at least. Thanks for the read Ellicat, very interesting. Their growth rate is a little slower than I orignally thought.
  3. Access for Logan river ?

    What ramp were you using? I've never had a problem launching at the Alberton Rd ramp.
  4. Hervey Bay trip Oct 31-Nov 1st

    Nice report. I've been planning a trip up there myself and reading reports like this gets me pumped. It looks like about a 60-70ml hike from Urangan to Roonies. Do you know what sort of range you get out of the boat and do you need to carry extra fuel for the trip?
  5. PB GT

    Congrats on the PB that fish on 6lb string is awesome. You can't beat the Pulling power of a solid GT.
  6. Logan report.

    Nice fish mate what have you been using? Liveys? Plastics? Also what tides do you prefer for Logan jacks
  7. My Wife just booked a couple of days fishing here in mid October for us as a surprise. I had a look at the web site and it looks pretty awesome but would rather feed back and info from people that have been there. So anyone on here been there? what was it like? what gear should I take? I am hoping to target spot tail bass one day then GT and maybe Doggies etc the rest, if the weather is good. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks Cam
  8. Matching rod for Stradic CI4 2500

    Thanks Jamie, The 13 omens don't seem to go light enough for what I want, but the Samiki Zings seem to look the goods all be it a touch short for what I like. I might go and have a play with one see how it feels, see if I need those extra few inches;0. I've been looking at the ecooda range. anyone using the crank shafts?
  9. Matching rod for Stradic CI4 2500

    Hi all, Just bought a Stradic CI4 2500, and am going to run 5LB power pro on it. Just after some suggestions on a rod to suit under the $200 mark. What I'm after is some thing about 7ft with a fast taper about the 2-4kg range. I was thinking a Daiwa Gen Black or a G-Loomis GL2 but would be interested to hear personal thoughts on these rods or other suggestions would be great. thanks in advance Cam
  10. Hard to find plastics

    I'm trying to find Snapbacks and Zoom super flukes, can anyone point me in the right direction for these lollies. I notice tackle warehouse sell Zoom but seem to only have the frog ones but I will ask next time I'm there. but the snap backs I can't find, are they still in business?? thanks in advance Cam
  11. Strudwick slic stick pro??

    This rod was my first plastics rod matched with a 2000 legalis.I got mine from the boat show a few years ago. I think they are pretty good entry level stick especially at that price. Cam

  13. Correct way to hold flathead .

    I would have thought using a towel would wipe of more slime then just a wet pair of hands. .
  14. Hervey Bay Guides

    +1 for Paul I went out with him just before christmas, sight casting for Goldens and GTs on the flats. Great fun, he really knows his stuff awesome boat for lure and fly.
  15. What brand braid is the best value?

    Not sure if it comes under the cheap category but I like Bionic. It feels real nice when casting, easy to tie and I don't get any wind knots. I had 10lb Sunline PE on my stradic and it felt nice but the wind knots were a little annoying and it seemed to get worn very quickly after 3 months of fishing every couple of days I had to strip about 50m off because of what I would consider sun damage. So I replaced it with Bionic and have been happy since.
