  1. you will find if you engage the lever enough for the drag to rub you wont get any distance...you will either have to learn how to throw it or throw IT and buy a suitable reel..rick
  2. tld 20s aren't the best casting reel designed for trolling..use more lead..hang sinker at least 4/5 ft from tip and use long pendulum swing at 45 degrees over shoulder and thumb heavily..ps try wetting line before you cast. stops burnt thumb...I use a tld 30 off breakwall down here for jew but I use 8 oz snapper lead..you may be better off buying a sealine or other surf style o/hd reel..rick
  3. you can get two ryobis for the price of one wtf
  4. not many reels have the line capacity of these when using 80lb in deep water ..we have 5 between my mates and I and have had no probs with them..we took guys to browns with daiwas and others and they couldn't hit bottom in 500mtrs with the angle of drifting...these size reels on bent butts are left in the rod holder..in 480mtrs takes twenty mins to hit the surface...rick
  5. there are heaps on fleabay now..Ryobi electric reels..then hit worldwide down left side..some ad dendau 101 reels from $260 /$380 delivered..rick
  6. Hve got blueeye to 18kg
  7. we use Ryobi dendau 100/101..and find them very good..we fish browns mtn off Sydney 400/500 mtrs and the shelf canyons off Swansea 300/450 mtrs...the ryobis hold 900 mtrs 80lb braid in thin quality stuff...ebay worldwide and you can pik them up for less than $350.00...rick
  8. definitely your mike dude...rick
  9. usual cause is water intrusion in microphone..has it been in the rain or spray..also check that the mike is plugged into the unit properly...rick
  10. common name cowfish..plenty of them and big spiky puffer fish in the lake.. I normally fish out of summerland pt and they are everywhere in bottom half of lake..rick
  11. nice feed guys..sad that you have to run from bream...down here everybody chases them and whiting are bycatch..rick
  12. fishing with kids is awesome..my son started coming out to sea age 5..caught first marlin age 10..caught first murray cod last week age 20 ..still fishin with me ..awesome....rick
  13. congrats to jeff horn great fight great spectacle.....best fight ive seen for ages..rick
