  6. After reading the reports of yesterday my eagerness to fish slower went down. We decided to head out from kirra street at 5AM and see what it was like at the port. We got out to pretty much next to the entrance of boggy creek and there was a huge cargo ship and dad shit bricks. We checked the beacon to beacon and found a spot in the clear zone away from the shipping channel. We started fishing and waiting for something to happen. Something was playing with one of the pilchards and the smart fish decided to eat until he found the hook. Pretty much the story of the trip. tried so many things like 2 hooks, single hooks, small baits, positioning of the hook. NO fish. we thought we had something good, ran the reel well then started hauling it in and then weight gone. Bring the line in half a god dam jelly fish. so disappointing. Came in after a few hours. happy with the first time in the river. hopefully next time we head further out and the fish eat the hook*****. Cheers Justin

  8. G'day everyone, I am just after some boat ramps that is close to the port of brisbane and is easy access as me and my father are beggininers and aren't advanced at the moment so need a user freindly boat ramp close to the poo shoot. Please just a couple of boat ramps. cheers Justin
  9. thanks everyone will cheak everything mentioned. cheers
  10. The motor is 2 stroke. and i maunally mix the fuel and oil
  11. G'Day Everyone, Today i went out with my father to try and get out and have a fish. When we fueled the boat up the servo didn't have premium so we were forced to put in unleaded 95 in thinking we shouldn't have a problem. oiled up and went to boat ramp. Boat got out of the harbour fine, but once we started cruizing towards to spot the engine slowly started to slow down, engine sounded like it was bogging down. when we tryed to max out engine it just stopped. turned around and put boat on trailer. Went to super cheap auto and tryed new spark plugs. Went out again with little change. it got up and went then mayby 1 minute later bogging down again. Note- Engine is a evinrude 70hp, 1983. - We suspect that the fuel had a large influence to the bogging down or the plugs are stuffed. - The engine starts first time everytime and can trottle along at 10km/h but when speed increases engine boggs down. I am just Curios to see what you fellow afo'ers have to say to my problem so please help me out Cheers Justin
