    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

    Same. Seeing the big sharks hit the bait balls at Harvey the other week put a new perspective on sharks and oceans.

    I need to do a lot of my reels that are grindy. I also had a reel that went grindy after the first days use. It didn't get wet or anything. I wonder if this is the same thing? I will pull it apart and let you know.
  6. Legends. Well done especially the 27 adult Saratoga. That must have been a big effort to grow them to size and release them.

    Good luck @jhedrick Good sized live mullet make an irresistible bait. There are quite a few on the inside of the bar. Try the deepest hole you can find at the snags between Swan Bay and Jumpinpin Bar. I so hope you get one!

    I have not seen it before sorry. I have googled a bit and he was a casting guru in South Australia a few years ago. I cant see why you couldn't use it. I would use it on Alveys and such but I wonder why you would use it on a new reel. ONOX do a great range of lure grease and oils now. We have had some donated to us for the last fishing comp and I do all my reels with it and it works great.

    Mate freshwater eel, big hooks and heavy trace and chuck it in any salt water. You will get a shark for sure.
