    Welcome Dash, tell us a bit about yourself and what types of fishing you are into.
  3. Can’t recommend Hooked on 1770 charter high enough. Damo works bloody hard to get you on fish. If you aren’t pulling good fish up after 10 mins from dropping the pick it’s lines up and he moves. He is a quality operator that’s for sure.
  4. Heading to the block up at Agnes day before ANZAC day. Booked on charter Friday 26th so hope the weather improves. If not will get a bit of work done around the shack up there and relax.
  5. I use 6lb Berkley nanofil but it is hard to find so I guess they have stopped making it. I bought some Suffix 6lb the other day for $2.99 a spool. Will try it this weekend. One thing that is reasonably consistent across most braids is the breaking strain is generally overstated so 6lb is closer to 8-10lb etc. On leader I use Berkley vanish. Don't buy actual leader they charge extra. Just buy flourocarbon line. Its the same stuff.
  6. Gumtree is your friend https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/yamanto/tinnies-dinghies/4-2m-stessco-catcher/1208550318 https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/camira/tinnies-dinghies/2011-clark-445-magnum-tinnie-50hp-mercury/1178896445 Personally I would be looking for a 4.2 - 4.7 meter tinny (not punt or v nose punt) if you want to head to Moreton or out in the bay. Also wide gunnels. A Yamaha or Honda donk 50hp (40hp at a bare minimum. Don't even contemplate a 30hp). So this one below would be ticking a lot of boxes. Those 2 banger Yammy's are bulletproof. Looks in good nick. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/wynnum/tinnies-dinghies/stessl-truck-4-65-2004-and-trailer-in-excellent-condition/1209080028
  7. My girls got their first ones on soft plastics in the Passage. Great fun on 6lb
  8. I'm hanging around home (Caloundra) Will fish really early Sat, Sun and Mon and be back in before the terrorists are out and about.
  9. I’m hooking the boat up and heading off with the missus for ten days up on our 4acres at Agnes Water. No dogs, no kids (well actually my daughter will be up later in our stay for a few days) We hope to get some crabbing done and maybe a play offshore depending on the weather. I’m booked on a charter for the 27th so fingers crossed for good weather. I need some reef fish in the freezer. merry Christmas all.
  10. Thanks for putting together a top read. A great day by the sounds of it
  11. Looks a bit like a rock flathead to me http://fishesofaustralia.net.au/home/species/3360
  12. Thanks mate. Just bought 3 reels of the 6lb at that insane price!!
  13. Bugger. I’m off to 1770 on the 22nd and back on the 2nd happy to take you for a flatty bash in the new year if you want @Drop Bear ?
