    They are pretty cheap anyhow so Not to worry. It was a lot to set up yesterday. Takes quite a few hours to get the shells and get all set up. I probably should try and minimize stuff not get more

    Ok great. I just used a bucket yesterday and it worked out really well so I think you are right a smaller one is better.

    New Boat For Ozfish

    Hey Gang, It looks like we will be purchasing a cracking oyster punt for OzFish over the next few days/weeks (depends on a few things). Punt is 8.6m long and 2.6m wide. YEW It comes with a, not running, 2004 Evinrude etec 75. No idea of hours but it has been on a work boat so will have a lot. There is barnacles and other growth on the leg and prop so it has not been well looked after. We are not paying for the engine. The guy selling says it was working that night but didn't next day and thinks it is an electronic problem. The boat is supposed to weigh under one ton with motor and fuel. So my Questions are; Are you as excited about owning an oyster punt as I am? (parties, fishing etc) Any tips on best place to get an abused 2004 Evinrude etec 75 serviced/fixed? We are a charity so hoping to be cheaper options. Also we would like to get a trailer. Hopefully if engine works out we will have about 5k to spend on it. I can weld... Would a second hand shark cat type trailer work if we re built the super structure? Name ideas? Comments and thoughts? Best cocktail recipes? TA

      Lure Or Jig Head Protection When Travelling

      haha pro tip though. I need to do that to my eski so it doesn't slip on the floor. Do you think I need to screw the velcro to the eski so it doesn't peel off?

      hey mate, welcome to the site. the jumpinpin area has literally hundreds if not thousands of fishing possibilities. target any of the drop offs on the edge of sand/mud banks with good tidal flow with live yabbies and you are almost guaranteed of a fish - whiting, bream, flathead, grunter etc. fishing live herring or mullet in some of the deeper sections can result in mulloway, big flathead, jacks and the like, but also stingrays and shovel nose rays. You will generally do much better in the quieter areas (they do exist) away from the major channels. as far as plastics/lures go, the main target for me on plastics/lures is flathead, but you do get bream, grunter, tailor and trevally as a by catch, mulloway if you are lucky. there is no real "go-to" spot, just looking for areas that look like they may hold fish and give it a go - drop offs, snags, weed patches etc. some areas work on a particular day or tide and then the next trip you can pull a doughnut. any area that is holding bait, especially jelly prawns is well worth spending some time casting at. biggest tip is to fish as light as possible, my "heavy" outfit for that area runs 20lb, i only use this for a bigger live bait. otherwise 4-10lb main line and 6-12lb leader is usually as heavy as you want to go. you will also do better on the bigger tides of the month around the new and full moons. there is also a heap of info on the forum from previous trips people have done, use the search function and you will find tonnes. also could be worth throwing out an offer of a decky spot for someone who knows the area to take you out and show you around - there are a lot of people on here who fish that area and will likely be happy to help out and show you a few spots and provide some pointers. good luck.

          1. Hey, Can anyone let me know any good spots around the Sanctuary cove area? And can someone let me know if you are allowed to fish at the little lake at Jenny Park Place at the entrance of Sanctuary cove, I've seen some good sized jacks and mullet in there, but I don't know if you're allowed to fish there. Thanks

              Mediocre day today 22 bass and numerous forkies plus left camera at home so no photos so it did not happen, First spot looked good on the sounder and after a triple forkie hook up we moved on. Ended up on the floats and at least we were getting the occasional bass on a 3 to one ratio ( 3 forkies 1 Bass) Percy gorged himself downing at least 12 forkies So we went exploring and no more forkies but also no bass. In the meantime Andrew and his mateds tied up to the floats and 35 bass and no forkies . When they moved off we took over the spot and landed more bass and no forkies. Cheers Ray

              Had some sunscreen on, @kmcrosby78, but wasn’t casting too long anyway (no stamina). That was in Boggy Creek. Good luck tomorrow @Drop Bear. I would love to come but I can’t make any plans for at least the next 3 weeks

              south queensland Catching Freshwater Eel

              I use a heavy hand line with a hook at about 3/0 ish and a ball sinker. Subtle rigs are not required. Best baits for me are meat that is tough to get off the hook. Chicken hearts are a cracker if you can get them but I have done very well on venison. I don't like soft baits as I find they can mouth the bait and get it off without you knowing. As for baits I cut them up and bag them individually before freezing them. Bigger is better
