Im living in the ACT .. and being close to eucumbene lake etc i do lots of trout fishing etc .. so im setting up a rod for rat kingies .. not after huge kingies .. more looking for a decent spot that produces rat kingies within 2.5hrs from the ACT, I mainly want to go after the small guys 60 to 75/80 cm max .. planning on getting there early morning etc .. really want to get onto some with my partner .. size doesnt matter just consistency i guess .. land based .. so rock fishing etc .. would prefer safer spots lol, spots between wollongong & narooma prefferably .. anyone know somewhere i could try ?
recently been looking at buying a boat and am really getting confused as on what would be a good purchase, on one hand i can see a variety of good boats for around $14000, and on the other hand i can see ones for $35000, would a boat like this be good enough to take offshore say 50k's out: https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/yagoona/motorboats-powerboats/haines-hunter-490sr-mercury-115hp-outboard/1138101698 or would i need to buy something more along the lines of these 2 to be safe: http://www.boatsales.com.au/boats-for-sale/private/used/SSE-AD-4514322/2006-Bar-Crusher-530C?cr=10&psq=((Make%3D[Bar Crusher]%26(((SiloType%3DDealer used boats|SiloType%3DDealer new boats)|SiloType%3DPrivate used boats)|SiloType%3DDemo and near new boats))%26Service%3DBoatsales)&pso=0&pss=Premium http://www.boatsales.com.au/boats-for-sale/private/used/SSE-AD-4483595/2000-Savage-565-LANCER-SP-CUDDY?cr=0&psq=(((Make%3DSavage%26Model%3D[565 LANCER SP CUDDY])%26(((SiloType%3DDealer used boats|SiloType%3DDealer new boats)|SiloType%3DPrivate used boats)|SiloType%3DDemo and near new boats))%26Service%3DBoatsales)&pso=0&pss=Premium ive been out in my friends haines hunter signature plenty of times offshore and im sure it is only a 5.25-5.5m hull so its a bit contradicting reading lots of people saying 6m hull minimum. what are the basic guidelines of a good offshore rig. ive been trying to do my research on google but with so many mixed opinions im a bit stumped, honestly id rather spend the 14k mark and pickup something a little older but looked after even if it is only 5.25m hull as long as it will do the job .. i dont see why it wouldnt right ? surely it should do the job when the 530c bar crusher is a 5.30 hull and from what ive read there great for offshore so whats stopping the haines ? ... AAAARRRGGH CONFUSED ! id really like to take a look at the haines hunter 490 because its a good price for a well looked after boat which is well equipped for fishing, mainly be trying to get into micro-jigging rat kings inshore 30-40m, and hopefully a fair bit of light geared offshore jigging, maybe also some live baiting for snapper. thanks for the help guys.
