  1. Anyone got one of these, they can give me some advice on please. I'm thinking of getting my first kayak, just to cover more territory around the coast, should all be pretty flat water, but I travel from Toowoomba so needs to be a one man show on my Ute and I'm not young any more. Any advice appreciated cheers.
  2. Thanks elicat, no worries drop bear, don't get out much, but try to contribute, even if it's only to tell of my donut lol
  3. Hired a tinnie today at Jacobs well with my work offsider, fished all day, moving around lots, I used soft plastics and my go to hard body, dawia double clutch. Didn't catch a thing, but kept getting caught up in weed, was a pain because I coudnt see it till I dragged my lures through, tried to work out a plan b but unfortunately, coudnt. Very frustrating after driving from Toowoomba, Dave on bait got two undersized bream, and something called a pike eel, very sinister looking, as his got a disability (and I don't mean me) he was happy. Anyhow beats being at work, cheers all john
  4. Hi all When I travel with my rods, I've usually got a lure or jig head on and of course they snag everything on my vehicle, plus if I carry them on a boat the same problem. Is there anything locally you can get that wraps or snaps around them to prevent this problem when travelling. Cheers john
  5. Yes drop bear, I dropped my guard and wore some of them, very sharp mate. Cheers
  6. Caught this today in the Tweed, can someone I'd it please, cheers john M
  7. It's actually like it's fused every couple of metres, best way to describe, just enough to stop a cast in its tracks, once my line is put on at the tackle shop, I don't touch it, I'm very part time.
  8. 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
  9. G'day all Can anyone please I'd this fish, caught by my mate today in coombabah creek. Cheers
  10. Drop bear, you nailed it, I put a jig head on and cast in the back yard several times, of course it never broke. Seen your reply, just done the braid rubbing test, and yes I've got a nick in my second last eyelet, another fishing lesson learnt, will now get it repaired, thanks all. Cheers john
  11. Land based today, I slipped on rocks and noticed my braid had broken, luckily I could grab it and pulled it all in saving my $25,lure. Thinking it ripped on the oyster shells I,rerigged and cast again only to see my lure go flying through the air into the deep, thinking it was bad knots, I loaded up another double clutch, to once again watch my hard earned sale into the drink, this time I relized it was my braid giving way, so I seen the light and retired it for the day.my initial reaction was I got bad braid from my tackle shop, but it was only it's second outing and held well on its first, so I'm figuring it something on the rod or my sedona reel, anyone got any ideas? As it was dark when I got home, I've not been able to forensically, study my rod or reel, plus the missus was hovering so thought it best to keep my lure throwing to myself lol. Cheers john
  12. Where I found the solunar was on a site called fishingreminder, but I wasn't chasing it, just trying to write down the tides for that day, to try and keep a record. Then when I checked solunar, it was uncannily accurate. Cheers john
  13. Thanks drop bear I agree with using past experiences, I guess it was just seeing it after the event, and it being spot on I'd gauge some thoughts. Cheers mate
  14. Took my mate out in a hire boat at Jacobs well yesterday, fished the banks in very windy, coldish conditions, David landed a nice 60cm flatty that went against how we were going on a prawn bait, I was flicking plastics. It was tough going. With an hr to go of our time, I moved up across from the boat hire place, to let David chase some bream(he's got a slight disability) so I decided to use a daiwa double clutch hard body, just to fill time in, as I'd never had luck nor patience to persist with hard bodies, but blow me down with a feather, I started catching flatties like there was no Tommorrow, so my bream spot (I'm very amateur) turned into a gold mine of flatties. Of course this occurred with time up on the hire, my biggest went 59cm,but they were all good sized, a great day. Unusualy only caught one little one earlier in day. Well worth the trip from Toowoomba. Now my question. While looking to try and record the days conditions and trawling tide times, I came across soluner for Jacobs well, amazingly it's predictions for hot bites, Minor times, to me was absolutely spot on, almost to the minute. The rating for the day was 2stars out of 4 and said reasonable prospects etc. Just thought I'd ad this, as I stated earlier it was uncannily accurate, interested in others thoughts on these guides, especially for someone who struggles to understand all this. Ps pic doesn't include David's flatty) Cheers john
