steve29 « Wed Nov 26, 2014 6:57 pm » cheers thanks for the advice everyone hopefully ill catch something as soon as i get out there for the first time cheers
Quinntreximon « Wed Nov 26, 2014 6:18 pm » Steve29 you need at least 2.5mtrs to get in or out. Fish 2 hours each side of a tide change, even better at night or sunrise/sunset. Lee pt worth a trip. Also if its calm cast around the rocks for a barra.
jonr « Wed Nov 26, 2014 4:06 pm » Seano - I get one meal in my house out of 4 geese. So each trip we have one meal as freeze 1. By the end of the season I have enough to last most of the year to next season - this season has been the best I can remember - normally I don't get that many.
steve29 « Wed Nov 26, 2014 2:04 pm » gday people just wondering planning on taking the father in law out for a fish i was planning to go out of nightcliff on in a 4mtr stacer tinny 30hp im new to boating any idea for me about tides to get in and out and a idea how far to go just to catch a fish or to for the in law any advice would be great cheers
seano « Wed Nov 26, 2014 12:47 pm » What do you do with that many geese?
The Tracker « Wed Nov 26, 2014 12:29 pm » Cheers scottie
jonr « Wed Nov 26, 2014 12:03 pm » Goose number 250 for the season hit the deck today
Scottie5.3 « Wed Nov 26, 2014 9:43 am » Was there two weeks ago, always fish there. Just getting there when the water is at the right height to fish a drain is the secret I think. I'm not saying anymore but you should be able to work it out
The Tracker « Wed Nov 26, 2014 8:57 am » Morning fellas. anyone fished the Howard springs rock bar lately was going to give it a go tomorrow morning
olfart « Wed Nov 26, 2014 8:49 am » Yep..bl..dy dyslexic fingers again.

Fisherman-Rob « Tue Nov 25, 2014 5:41 pm » Thanks Seano & Standy, forgot about the trusty swival and ring haha. And hey! whats this $10 buckaroony dooverlackie thing? sounds promising, easy and cheap ! haha where do you get one from? and length wise, create it about 40cm to a metre i take it? cheers guys
ADRNLN « Tue Nov 25, 2014 4:53 pm » Territory Tuff just right hand side of lizzy river boat ramp
nomad « Tue Nov 25, 2014 12:23 pm » Ive got an old tackle box to give away. you can use it as a trade in at \tackle world
STANDY « Mon Nov 24, 2014 7:59 pm » I cheat and use a............. DU.BRO e/z Twist tool $10 mo tackle
STANDY « Mon Nov 24, 2014 7:57 pm » Same as seano but I use a solid ring saves braid getting caught in some swivels
seano « Mon Nov 24, 2014 6:29 pm » Just hay wire twist to a swivel and tie this to your mono leader
Fisherman-Rob « Mon Nov 24, 2014 4:26 pm » thanks Seano...so one end is Hay wire twist directly onto the hook, and the other end is Hay wire twist (i imagine) then attached to mono or braid directly? What knot would you use to attach the braid (or Mono) to other end of single strand wire? something like a Loop knot then!? cheers
Territory_Tuff « Mon Nov 24, 2014 2:18 pm » ADRNLN, where did you head mate? Middle Arm?
ADRNLN « Mon Nov 24, 2014 11:30 am » Maiden Voyager a success, and learnt more about boat ramp launching when too and when your can't. Channel Island was the only ramp with the 1mtr low, Boat all good and scales in the boat 62cm silver barra that tasted the best
seano « Mon Nov 24, 2014 10:36 am » Fishermanbob- look up 'hay wire twist'
Fisherman-Rob « Mon Nov 24, 2014 9:55 am » thanks Standy for your feedback, so you dont use the blackmagic wire trace(as i bought that i think), you use single strand wire? how do you rig that one up? cheers
Fisherman-Rob « Mon Nov 24, 2014 9:53 am » thanks alot cuddlescooper for the information mate.
fishostevec « Sun Nov 23, 2014 9:43 pm » Wats the Barra fishing like around Palmerston
steve29 « Sun Nov 23, 2014 11:39 am » cheers scottie5.3 thanks for the info hopefully i catch something?
Scottie5.3 « Sun Nov 23, 2014 10:28 am » Hey standy weren't we meant to be in shoal bay mate? Lol
Scottie5.3 « Sun Nov 23, 2014 10:28 am » I started with a 4.2 bass master (flat bottom), it was great for rivers and billabongs as had front and rear casting decks, but any chop over half a metre, and I basicly used the thing like a jet ski, fun but not recommended. I picked my days and went out to the Vernon's and other places like the fentons on a calm day but never any further as it was just scary if it picked up. But in saying that perfect size to learn and get a good feel for a boat, then upgrade once your comfortable
steve29 « Sat Nov 22, 2014 8:44 pm » thanks standy price tag?
STANDY « Sat Nov 22, 2014 6:53 pm » Check you Messages Steve29
steve29 « Sat Nov 22, 2014 6:50 pm » hmmm how do I do that mate
dannett « Sat Nov 22, 2014 6:46 pm » You might want to start a thread Steve.
steve29 « Sat Nov 22, 2014 6:31 pm » Gday people's planning on getting a 4mtr tinny are they ok to bob around the harbor in and whats the chance on catching anything out there how far could you go as im new to the boating stuff cheers any advice would be great
STANDY « Sat Nov 22, 2014 6:26 pm » All mono or single strand wire not those black trace things that you buy with a swivel at one end
cuddlescooper « Sat Nov 22, 2014 2:07 pm » A popper may work down there but bait is more of a garantee especilly once the sun comes up.
cuddlescooper « Sat Nov 22, 2014 2:06 pm » I run mono leader and tie the lure to that unless chasing mackeral. Then I use some 60lb Single strand wire. Pilly's are ok but I try to use fresh bait.
Fisherman-Rob « Sat Nov 22, 2014 1:47 pm » ohh and a question when you guys Lure fish, do you tie the Lure to the Mono, then mono to the braid? or do you use a wire trace attached to Braid) instead and simply click the lure on? cheers
Fisherman-Rob « Sat Nov 22, 2014 1:46 pm » thanks alot Cuddlescooper, might have to give that one a go when the tides are right if i cant catch any live bait, will frozen pillies(defrosted) and/or lure fishing be just as good? cheers
cuddlescooper « Sat Nov 22, 2014 12:54 pm » Hi tide at deck chair cinema early morning before sun rises till about 2 hours after. Fresh sardine baits or live mullet poddy mullet.
Fisherman-Rob « Sat Nov 22, 2014 9:17 am » Hi Guys, hope your enjoying your weekend. just a question that crappy blue-green algae still around land based locations in Darwin? Anybody recommend a good place to drop a line land-based around darwin this weekend, away from the algae? Cheers guys, tight lines.
ADRNLN « Fri Nov 21, 2014 10:01 pm » Yes cheers guys. That's the plan nice and easy. Maiden voyage in our own boat rather then someone else's.
dannett « Fri Nov 21, 2014 7:11 pm » If its your maiden voyage don't leave it below 2m and take it easy. Get a feel for places and your vessel first.
seano « Fri Nov 21, 2014 5:04 pm » Just rim up and get your decky too stand up front too watch for rocks if it's that low
ADRNLN « Fri Nov 21, 2014 3:51 pm » Cool thanks. maiden voyage hopefully this weekend
seano « Fri Nov 21, 2014 3:06 pm » That's leader creek rockbar
seano « Fri Nov 21, 2014 3:05 pm » I can get over it about 1.8
dannett « Fri Nov 21, 2014 2:32 pm » About 1.5m and above.
ADRNLN « Fri Nov 21, 2014 2:18 pm » Hi All is East Arm boat ramp access all tide times??
Lats « Fri Nov 21, 2014 12:49 pm » I went over that rock bar the other day at 2m and had 60cm of water over it
alfie « Fri Nov 21, 2014 12:18 pm » Legend, thanks mate. That's my issue, left my bible in the boat and when it rained.. Well you get the idea. Did ask Matt, when the new one was due or if he had one of the current on the cheap. Had a look at local newsagent don't have in stock. know my local areas well but trying different areas for a change.
sharkbait « Fri Nov 21, 2014 11:52 am » Yeah, that should be ok, it can get shallow out from the mouth a bit, but it doesn't dry anywhere through there. There is a deep channel on the right just inside the mouth (heading out) which can produce on the troll. Also, check the FFF bible, some good rockbars marked in there worth a troll.
alfie « Fri Nov 21, 2014 11:44 am » G'day sharkbait, yeh we found that out a couple of years back in a mates boat. Thank you, for reminding me though. Never been there on such big tides, will there be enough water to troll within the mouth area?
sharkbait « Fri Nov 21, 2014 11:31 am » Also you'll need approximately 3 metres to clear the rockbar just up from the Leaders ramp, alfie.
alfie « Fri Nov 21, 2014 9:45 am » Thanks for the info mate
