  1. If anyone is keen for some Mooloolaba King Prawns, i have a mate who has a heap for sale at Tewantin, QLD. These are off the trawler that he runs so it is all licenced commercial seafood. If you live up that way and are keen to buy some, please shoot me a PM and I will pass on his contact details. The prawns are packaged in 5kg boxes and have been snap frozen on the boat. You will not find any better quality prawns than these Mooloolaba Eastern King Prawns. If anyone around me wants some prawns, he is delivering to my place in Kingston 4114 this Thursday. I need to know by Wednesday night if you would like some so he can bring them down on Thursday. Get your Easter Prawns so you do not have to line up at the shops for them. Cooked Medium Prawns $100 Cooked Small Mediums Prawns $80 Medium soft and broken green prawns $60
  2. Hi Geoff I have crossed the bar at SWR a few thousand times and you do need to treat it with the utmost of respect. It is a very shallow bar these days so waves can stand up on it from out of no where, especially if there is any swell from the North East to Easterly directions. It is well protected in a Southerly unless there is big swell running and then it will curl around the Jail and hit the bar. The main thing is to cross it on the run in tides or right on the change of tides if you are not terribly experienced on bar crossings. Beware of the pressure waves inside the river on the bigger run out tides as these can be just as nasty as the bar itself. Never go out south of the south wall as that is dead mans territory down there, generally the channel is straight out the middle or just to the side of the middle of the river. Some times a small channel can open across the front of the North wall so you can get out by running along the beach for a couple of hundred meters and then pop out into clean water. Coming back in, just sit on the back of a wave and follow it in and you will be fine. Back Creek is fantastic for small boats but remember you will only have a foot of water at low tide so you will need to work the tides. You can drive down to the creek entrance below the police station and have a good look before you even launch if you are worried about it. I have not seen the new ramp at the Jail since it was built but I always launched off the beach there when the river and creek were too dangerous. That corner of the bay is an awesome launch spot if you are familiar with beach launching and it is also a safe place to retrieve if you cannot get back in the river or creek. You can pull up there and call a taxi to take you back to your car at one of the ramps where you launched earlier that morning. I would also forget Forster for Mackeral as they do not get down there very often or in the massive numbers like you get off Grassy. The close ground in 18m should be fishing well this time of the year but they could be there or on the Middle Ground in 29m, just look for good shows of bait and anchor up on them and get your live baits out. If they don't bite early morning, they may bite in the afternoon so try both if you have the time. Don't foret small live slimies are the best baits there. If in doubt, don't go out !!!
  3. I'd hate to guess how many Wee Warts and Wiggle Warts I bought and lost back in the early 80's. They were an awesome lure in their day.
  4. It is a very old saying for those fish. As slippery as a butchers prick
  5. It is a Southern Moari Wrasse, AKA Butchers Prick

    How Much

    You originally said this was an early 80's engine so which is it as the price will vary greatly between an 80's and 90's engine.
  7. It's a bit far up and too shallow for me to help you with any marks Robbie. That's fern country up there so find that and you will find Nannygai in good numbers and they are a shallower water fish well suited to fish for in your tinny. I would definitely take the crab pots as well. I also have a few hundred Barra lures here if you need to borrow any.
  8. Yes it is a Longnose Jon. It went 44cm
  9. Thanks for another great trip Mark. The fishing was very tough this trip but we kept working them hard and chipped away at them till we found a patch of fish that were very hungry and managed to finish our bag off in the 2 days. I really expected to do the 3 days to get our fish this trip but that late arvo bite on the second day was pretty special and got us over the line with a bit of an early mark as well.
  10. I cannot see how it would be any different to the Jayco caravan that you had and as already mentioned, the water issue is a major problem unless you had a proper fitting waterproof cover.
  11. Generally water will not worry them if wet from the key side so you need to grab a multi meter and check the voltages on the back of the isolator switch to see if it has been damaged with water. First check the terminal that is connected to the battery and if you have full power to the switch, turn it on and check the other terminal to see if power is getting through the isolator. If you have power on both lugs of the isolator when turned on, you need to check any buss bar connections, circuit breakers and fuses on the main power feed cables. Also look for any burnt wiring that may have shorted from the water.
  12. Nice fish for his first snapper.
  13. Still being vertical at the end of the year would be pretty special but If I can catch half the amount as i did this year, that would be great. I think this year I am keen to go and catch a few Snakeheads in Lake Temenggor.
  14. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone. Be safe and catch heaps.
