  1. Happy weekend everyone Trying to minimize the amount of gear I have as it’s just getting to the point of being overly cluttered. So instead of throwing out some gear, I figured I’d give it away for free. There must be a youngster out there or someone knows of a young fisher that would appreciate some gear. It’s not much, and not the greatest quality but I’d rather see it goes to use rather than go to waste. The lures need new trebles ive got a tackle box, a few small hard bodies and a few blades, rod, small overhead combo and a well used brag mat.

    Pre-made Rigs

    Hi all. A friend of mine runs this website and makes all these rigs. It is an Australian Made and owned company and they work really well. Just thought I would share his site and try to help support an Australian company. He just runs a small hobby business so he only has limited stocks but my mate and I use them and they are pretty good for the price.

    Sticking Braid

    While fishing today, I was trying to cast a hard body, when it went out all of a sudden it would drop, the cause being my braid seem to be sticking every few metres, it's actually been doing it awhile, I'll get it respooled asap, it's been on awhile. Just wondering what causes this to happen? It was a good quality braid and been good, so I'm not complaining, just intrigued. Cheers

    ok guys whats your best rating mono iam pretty much done with braid other then on my electrics so going back to mono iam thinking schinder line,what do you guys use if any?
  15. I apologize in advance if I offend anyone with my potential purchase! I'm totally new to fishing in general and I'm keen to try some beach surf fishing around Bribie Island. I have been looking at rod/reel combos and this one looked like good value. Apparently 5 bearings is good for this price point? I dead set know SFA about what I'm doing here.,-surf-combo/1102814 If I enjoy the fishing I will likely go all in and gear up with better gear but is this good enough for a casual/beginner to try out?
  16. Hey lads, I have been persevering with Braid on baitcasters as it is thinner etc however I have a higher rate of tangles. When I use Mono I never get tangles.... PErhaps the line isn’t loading onto reel tight enough IDK...... It’s driving me crazy! What do others use?? I mainly use Hard body lures or bait with them.... If I Use SP I just drop them over side of boat and if casting I use spin reel.....

    Barra Rod?

    I am looking for a decent rod for barra, jacks and that sort of thing to pair up with my shimano canean 150hg baitcaster (Keep in mind i have NEVER used a baitcaster before!!). I would like it to be 6' to 5'6foot around the 4-8kg 5-8kg 5-9kg 6-10kg mark. I am currently looking at the diawa laguna x 6-10kg 6foot for $80. The abu garcia max-s 5-8kg 5'8foot for $70, and the diawa aird x 6-10kg 6foot for $100. Any help will be appreciated and $100 is my budget!! Thank you for your time. Ben

    New Reel Advice

    Hey! Looking for thoughts on a reel for reefs up to 30mtrs. Mainly for Trout, RTEs and the likes. I do bottom bashing and the odd plastic or slug. So far choice is either a Stradic FK 4000 series or Stradic Ci4+ 4000. BCF currently have the Ci on sale for $369. Cheers!
  23. This should come with every carbon fibre/graphite rod purchase

    My New Setup!

    This beautiful shimano sedona fi c2000hgs reel just arrived in the mail and paided only $80 bucks with postage!! Now i need to decided which rod for about $100 bucks i am going to pair with this fella? Still cant make up my mind??? recommend me a good light 2 piece spin rod to me, i am getting people recommending me diawa i went to tackle world and a few other stores and they say dont even bother with diawa and said it was a sh#t fight for warranty? So diawa it really not what im going for.
  25. Hey, In the spirit of "this is why we cant have nice things" I thought I would make a post. I lost my love, the Sharp Shooter over the side last week as well as breaking my 4th... yes 4th Cheater... So I need to learn how to look after my gear better... but in the mean time I have 2 questions. 1 - Can anyone recommend an ultra light rod for throwing sugar pens to whiting on and bream with 6lb braid that is; Cheap, light and takes a bit of a bump? 2- Does anyone have a favorite braid that they use for this light stuff. I will be putting it on a 1000 sienna. 3 - Has any one built in a rod locker in there boat? I did a very rough drawing of what I am planning. Would this work or would it be in the way? Plan is that it would be the same height as the casting deck at the front and double as a seat. The bait tank at the back would be same height as the gunwale as I see most of them overflowing. Thanks DB
