Re: HaHa SUCKERS!!

Slowly but surely fishos will eventually start copping it in the neck. Is only a matter of time before they will be treated like people such as myself who also enjoy hunting as a past time. A few fishos hunt as a rule, but most hunters I know are also keen anglers. Nothing like doing a combined trip...

Re: Alvey reels now expensive ?

Biggest problem with consumers these days is the obsession to shop around on price. It's easy to do, hop online and compare prices for the same product from Multiple Retailers , find the lowest price and then bust their balls by trying to get the product even cheaper. Guess it's human nature. Howeve...

Re: Alvey Sidecast surf combo.

I usually use 4 oz sinkers when surf fishing. So casting an Alvey with heavy sinkers can be challenging? Have used my 7000's for over 25 years and guess I am just looking for something a bit different that can also do the job. Anyone else on here have issues casting an Alvey with heavy lead?

Re: Alvey Sidecast surf combo.

Thankyou so much for your reply. Love my over heads but am looking for an alternative. I like the idea of a lever drag Alvey, have a couple of over heads with this feature and I find that it is just instinctive to use the drag as you need it. Am planning a trip to Johanna in the colder months next y...

Alvey Sidecast surf combo.

Hi, after some advice on a good combo for the Salmon and Jew off the beaches. At present are running Snyder 12 Foot rods with Abu 7000 o/head reels using nylon as I do a lot of rock fishing. Have never used an Alvey, but are looking for something that if I drop it in the sand or It gets seriously we...

Re: GoFish Nagambie!

Haven't been on this forum long, but I can't see the attraction of fishing shoulder to shoulder with hundreds of other anglers. The day that I go fishing to attempt to win a prize, in this case monetary, is the day I stop fishing for good. Fishing for me is all about getting away from the crowds and...

Yes, am going back. Unfinished business there. Possibly early December depending on work and the minister of war and finance.

Re: Portland - 13/10 - AM - The trip where I almost cried

Got back last night after 3 days at Portland. Fished the Lee several times day and night, without much success. A side note to this, is the traffic on this break wall during daylight hours is incredible. You have to look both ways before you can lean back and cast out. Got yakking to a fella from Po...

Re: Gummy tips and help.

Have not tried this method myself, but have heard of people dipping their baits in Kero to ward of the lice. Old Greek bloke I used to know reckons he used this method with good results. Anyone else here heard of this tactic. I am a bit sceptical to be honest.
