      6. An extract from the chances of winning lotto Being struck by lightning Odds: 1 in 12,000 You have a far greater chance of being struck by lightning than winning Gold Lotto. Now, at the not-so-lucky end of the rainbow, you also have a far greater chance of being hit by lightning than winning the lotto. Surprisingly, statistics show the chance of being struck by lightning in your lifetime is only one in 12,000. But can you guess the most common activity people are doing when they are struck? Fishing. So, if you don’t mind throwing a line in from time to time, take this as a timely warning. For all of us though, there are some simple things we can remember during storm season that will reduce the odds. Most of us know not to shelter under tall trees and structures but, just as importantly, you should also make sure you’re not the tallest thing if you’re in an exposed area. Experts say that if you can see lightning, or hear thunder, even in the distance, you are already at risk. Amazingly, lightning can strike as far as 16km away from a storm. So, if you’re outside and you see the tell-tale rumbling clouds rolling in, it’s time to take cover indoors. If you are one of the few that are struck by lightning and survive to tell the tale, you can consider yourself very lucky indeed – go ahead and buy yourself a lottery ticket
      7. Hey! Just noticed I’m beating ELLICAT and AUS-BNE-FISHO in the popularity stakes! Who would have thunk it!
      8. Hi all, My name is Aaron. I am currently in Year 11, go to school in NSW and am a keen recreational fisherman. For my Senior Geography Research Project my topic is "Impacts recreational fishing has on the environment in Australia". In this project I am required to do a survey to get as much primary data as possible. I would really appreciate it if as many as you could complete the short survey I have attached. It will take around 5-10 minutes to complete and is entirely voluntary. If you have finished the survey, I would really appreciate it, and it would help me a lot if you could copy this link and share/send it to as many people as you know. It would be best if they too were a recreational fishermen/fisherwomen. Link - Thank you for the support Regards Aaron
      9. Since I seen favourite boating hack I decided what’s everyone’s favourite fishing hacks . I’ll list mine Hack 1 for people that tie the Alberto knot you can make it a lot stronger by going through the loop 3 times instead of 1 before pulling it tight or you can just do a regular alberto and put 2 half hitch’s on the braid either way it does the same thing and is stronger then the regular Alberto hack 2 wash your treble or single hooks on your lures after fishing freshwater or saltwater . This gets rid of any salt weed or mud on the hooks and keeps them free of rust hack 3 write down the fishing conditions what you used weather and anything else you can add .into a empty book and turn it into a fishing dairy this way you will be able to predict good fishing times for certain spots you regularly fish and helps with fishing overall . i know some of these aren’t really hacks there more tips but I have found them to be very helpful
      10. Some of you know that I have prostate cancer. I am getting it cut out tomorrow. I hope to be back on the water ASAP. The reason for this post is to give any of you handsome rosters that are over 40 years of age a kick in the bum to go get a PSA test. Its easy, just ask your doc. I got mine early and hopefully it will all come out in one piece and ill be catching bigger fish than all you lot very soon. I hope you catch a stack while I'm gone.

      12. Game. First to guess has next shot.
      13. Happy Birthday Hamish. Hope all your fishing dreams come true.
      14. For those struggling with the current coronavirus rules, I found the following interpretative principles helpful. Before you read you may wish to make yourself a cup of tea maybe coffee or then again you may wish to pour a glass of wine. Then again you may wish to do all three. 1. You MUST NOT leave the house for any reason, but if you have a reason, you can leave the house. 2. Shops are closed, except those shops that are open. 3. You must not go to work, but you can get another job and go to work. 4. Schools are closed and you must home educate your children unless you can’t home educate your children then schools are open, but it depends which state you’re in, and the government recommends you home educate your children or send them to school, recognising that school is perfectly safe except for in the teacher’s staff room where it’s not safe because teachers can get the virus and children cannot, except those children that can. 5. Look, there is absolutely no need to be confused about schools. They are open or closed, children must stay home or attend, and they are not coronavirus risks except when they are. It may still differ from state to state, though. 6. The virus has no effect on children except those children it affects. 7. You are safe if you maintain the safe social distance when out, but you can’t go out with friends or strangers at the safe social distance. 8. It's important to get fresh air but don't go to parks but go for a walk. But don’t sit down, except if you are old, but not for too long or if you are pregnant or if you’re not old or pregnant but need to sit down. If you do sit down don’t eat your picnic, unless you've had a long walk, which you are/aren't allowed to do if you're old or pregnant. 9. You will have many symptoms if you get the virus, but you can also get symptoms without getting the virus, get the virus without having any symptoms or be contagious without having symptoms, or be non-contagious with's a sort of lucky/unlucky dip. 10. We should stay locked down until the virus stops infecting people but it will only stop infecting people if we all get infected so it’s important we get infected and some don’t get infected. 11. Gloves won't help, but they can still help so wear them sometimes, or not. 12. Masks are useless at protecting you against the virus, but you may have to wear one because it can save lives, but they may not work, but they may be mandatory, but maybe not. Just don’t touch them when you put them on or take them off. 13. To help protect yourself you should eat well and exercise, but eat whatever you have on hand as it's better not to go to the shops, unless you need a toilet roll or a fence post. 14. There is no shortage of groceries in the supermarkets, but there are many things missing. Sometimes you won’t need loo rolls but you should buy some just in case you need some. 15. No business will go down due to Coronavirus except those businesses that will go down due to Coronavirus. 16. If you are sick, you can go out when you are better but anyone else in your household can’t go out when you are better. 17. Don’t visit old people but you have to take care of the old people and bring them food and medication. 18. You can get restaurant food delivered to the house. These deliveries are safe. But groceries you bring back to your house have to be decontaminated outside for 3 hours including frozen pizza. 19. You can't see your older mother or grandmother, but they can take a taxi and meet an older taxi driver. 20. This virus can kill people, but don’t be scared of it. It can only kill those people who are vulnerable or those people who are not vulnerable. It’s possible to contain and control it, sometimes, except that sometimes it actually leads to a global disaster. 21. The number of corona related deaths will be announced daily but we don't know how many people are infected as they are only testing those who are almost dead to find out if that's what they will die of. The people who die of corona who aren’t counted, won’t or will be counted but maybe not. 22. The virus remains active on different surfaces for two hours ... or four hours...or six hours... I mean days, not hours. But it needs a damp environment. Or a cold environment that is warm and dry... in the air, as long as the air is not plastic. 23. Animals are not affected, but there was a cat that tested positive in Belgium in February when no one had been tested, plus a few tigers here and there… 24. Stay 2 metres away from tigers (see point 23). With that, I'm off to buy a fence post from Bunnings which is mostly open.
      15. I stepped outside this morning to pay my respects, it was good to see quite a few neighbors out in their driveways. Wife and I had several chats. Dino
      16. 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.

      21. I have often thought of keeping a record of my fishing trips so I can learn from successes and failures. Anyone doing this? Do you use a book? Maybe an app? Spreadsheet.
