Fish frames « Mon Dec 05, 2016 5:14 pm » Sorry if it's been posted before but wondering if anyone has co-ords for the Clyde oil rig? Never been out to north gutter before. Cheers
Fish frames « Mon Dec 05, 2016 5:12 pm » Hey b-rad and hobbit. Was out there two weeks ago, water was filthy. Managed a couple 1m+ threadies and a Barra. But got them from flicking soft plastics though. Hope this helps
b-radical « Mon Dec 05, 2016 2:17 pm » cool only one way to find out hobbit, i finally have the opportunity to fish building neap tides which the pros say is the best
hobbit « Mon Dec 05, 2016 1:18 pm » B-radical im thinking the same just last guy i know that was out there not long ago said water was very dirty
b-radical « Mon Dec 05, 2016 9:39 am » hey fellas from my research the tides and moon look good for shady camp this weekend anyone else have the same idea?
nomad « Sun Dec 04, 2016 10:21 am » I don’t think that its limited to the NT – there are a15eholes everywhere these days
Andy Grey « Sat Dec 03, 2016 8:56 pm » mozzies are bad in the CBD tonight
Andy Grey « Sat Dec 03, 2016 8:49 pm » yes Darwinblue those that would n0t normally own a boat down south because they couldn't pass a licence test
Darwinblue « Sat Dec 03, 2016 5:56 pm » Correct me if I'm wrong but is their a lot mor f**kheads up here now in boats?
dannett « Sat Dec 03, 2016 1:51 pm » Jeff is probably right. Aluminium rivets are another option that will prevent any future issues.
Bmacdonald90 « Sat Dec 03, 2016 10:56 am » Yeh i was thinking the same thing! Ill give it a go. See how many screws i can snap thanks mate
jeffish « Sat Dec 03, 2016 10:52 am » reckon it's disimilar metals on your fittings . Pull the SS screws out and coat them in Duralac ,this helped on my last Quinnie . I also cut rubber gaskets to insulate the fiittings from the hull . Can't understand why boat makers just wack s/steel screws staight in without useing duralac or similar .
Bmacdonald90 « Sat Dec 03, 2016 10:42 am » Yeh mate. Top ender
Andy Grey « Sat Dec 03, 2016 9:47 am » quintrex hull?
Bmacdonald90 « Sat Dec 03, 2016 7:20 am » Electrolysis or corrosion?? Im getting a bit of blistering around the fittings on the gunwals under the paint. What do you reckon?seems to be earthed properly
Swoffa « Fri Dec 02, 2016 4:12 pm » Matt. e-mail sent
jeffish « Thu Dec 01, 2016 10:04 pm » yeah the Butt crack was a bit moist .
Hemi « Thu Dec 01, 2016 9:35 pm » bl..dy hot.! That shower this morning made it very steamy all day !!
Andy Grey « Thu Dec 01, 2016 6:05 pm » man was it hot today!
Jeno « Thu Dec 01, 2016 3:26 pm » All good Scotty.....
Scotty69 « Thu Dec 01, 2016 2:19 pm » No worries Jeno. I've worked with plenty that do the right thing and have a concience.......I have experience with some rec fishers that have exceded size and bag limits too...... You can't judge all by experiences with a few....on both sides. . That is why my comment said "most".
Gibbsy « Thu Dec 01, 2016 2:08 pm » Anyone been out to perons this week? If so how did you go. Some mates and I are heading there for the weekend if the weather plays nice
Quinntreximon « Thu Dec 01, 2016 1:49 pm » As mentioned, it is a GLOBAL issue, the planet needs protection, rainforrests, oceans, air and water quality. We are not immune from the rest of the world. Once the planet is effected, we will also feel those effects.
Jeno « Thu Dec 01, 2016 11:34 am » Scotty....I don't agree that most commercial fishers do the right thing...sorry but that hasn't been my experience....
jeffish « Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:59 pm » Good to see some healthy debate on here . Pros And Cons ,but we all gotta eat so I'm off to the goldie hole to get my share
fff1964 « Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:36 pm » Belting down in Jabiru lots of water yeeha
Swoffa « Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:04 pm » WTF Are you sponsored by the Seafood Industry?? Meat was designed for those who cant catch fish
Scotty69 « Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:02 pm » It's all good fellas, I just believe there should be balance and most commercial fishers do the right thing just as most rec anglers do the right thing. The general non-fishing public deserve access to the same awesome resources we enjoy as anglers. Let's face it, we all love seafood.
nomad « Wed Nov 30, 2016 5:13 pm » Actually scotty, i should go along with you judging on my last trip out.
dannett « Wed Nov 30, 2016 4:23 pm » Here, we don't care much for sardines, we've even blocked some efforts to harvest them. But if we lose them, we lose whales, dolphins, sharks, tuna, mackerel etc that depend upon them.
dannett « Wed Nov 30, 2016 4:21 pm » The problem doesn't stop on Australia's borders. Take sardines for example. They navigate the globe during their life span. They get smashed by every predator along their migration. Then when nature has fished obliterating their stocks they arrive in the spawning grounds. And it is here the remaining stocks are harvested in numbers far exceeding natures efforts.
Scotty69 « Wed Nov 30, 2016 2:06 pm » That's what I'm trying to get at nomad. We are doing a pretty good job of fishing sustainably and keeping others trying to rape, pillage and plunder out. I like to know where my seafood comes from and that it is caught in a sustainable, ethical manner. And I believe that most Aussies that can't fish want the same.
nomad « Wed Nov 30, 2016 2:01 pm » Can’t compare Aus with Asia. They smash everything until it is gone, then move onto the next thing they find. Look at the jungles in Asia that are being chopped down to make way for bl..dy palm oil because of its value in todays consumerables. Does anyone think this sounds just a bit familiar to when whaling was all the go?
Scotty69 « Wed Nov 30, 2016 1:41 pm » Australia is recognised as having about the best sustainably managed commercial fisheries in the world. The information is all out there to see for all. Just go and visit most of Asia and in particular, Hong Kong street markets. It will open your eyes to how good we have it here. Alot has changed in the management and attitudes in the last 30 years that I have witnessed. It may not be perfect, but it is pretty bl..dy good.
Quinntreximon « Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:54 pm » Point is is cant and wont last forever. Every Forrest we cut down is another nail in the coffin. Humanity has a used by date and if you think any different you are kidding yourself. NOTHING WILL LAST FOREVER IF YOU KEEP EXPLOITING IT AND NOT REPLACING OR PROTECTING IT. Even now its probably too late as population will guzzle up whatever is left. So enjoy the now.
Jeno « Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:20 pm » A good example of commercial exploitation of native animals is the fur trade in Nth America where buffulo, beaver and other animals were decimated so a section of society could make money and others enjoy the product to the detriment of the majority
Jeno « Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:09 pm » In my lifetime (I am 50)...we have seen a massive reduction in marine species and especially commercially lucrative species like Tuna....damage to reef systems right around the world .... I mean...how much longer do you think it can last?
Jeno « Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:07 pm » I say this in the face of continual world population growth...unchecked development and habitat destruction...and I'm not a greenie....just a person with my eyes open....
Jeno « Wed Nov 30, 2016 12:06 pm » Yeah....pretty much Scottie...I can live with subsistance level fishing but not the commercial exploitation of fisheries and wild birds, mamals etc
nomad « Wed Nov 30, 2016 10:58 am » Good point scotty. BUT the damage that trawlers do is unusstainable. there must be a better way than ripping the guts out of the ocean floor. Remember the uproar when they had to fit TEDs into their nets? surely they could come up with a better method than dragging directly on the sea floor.
Scotty69 « Wed Nov 30, 2016 10:45 am » So Jeno you would be happy to deny 75% of the population that don't fish, access to fresh sustainably caught Australian seafood? It's not an attack Jeno, just a discussion.
Jeno « Wed Nov 30, 2016 10:38 am » I would buy prawns once a year...maybe....I just happen to believe that fisheries and forests etc shouldn't be available for commercial use..
barnzy « Wed Nov 30, 2016 9:00 am » Balou I'm thinking of getting one for fishing the snake drains in the harbour as well.
nomad « Tue Nov 29, 2016 7:37 pm » Wazdog - daly is sometimes the same thing as Nascar races
Davi-D « Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:32 pm » cheers wazdog. i'm hanging for when the water starts to flow over because thus far 2 years of barra fishing has landed me only 1. Figure its my best chance
wazdog « Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:28 pm » As for shady barrage, I steer clear as there are to many clowns that fish there,Daly heaps better and a nicer place, still have to be careful though
wazdog « Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:26 pm » bl..dy spell check Nancar not nascar
wazdog « Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:26 pm » Davi-d the way the bom site works for the Daly region is at the moment the last river indicator showing is mt NASCAR, when the Daly river police station apppears below it that means the actual river night is about 1.7mtres. Don't hold me to that level but it's close. I wouldn't be going there unless its big tides dude.
balou « Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:22 pm » Anyone use a foot pedal for motorguilde. Thinking getting one for chasing livies solo
b-radical « Tue Nov 29, 2016 2:39 pm » keen to know about shady barrage, bom doesnt say much
Davi-D « Tue Nov 29, 2016 1:26 pm » any word on what the water levels at shady or daly barrage are? if she's flowing then im "cough cough" not going to work tomorrow
dannett « Tue Nov 29, 2016 11:25 am » This is the problem Scotty, we are the problem.
Scotty69 « Tue Nov 29, 2016 11:24 am » So none of you here buy or eat wild caught prawns? Only seafood you eat is what you catch?
Jeno « Tue Nov 29, 2016 10:26 am » I really hate trawlers...
Agent86 « Mon Nov 28, 2016 11:48 pm » Hey Till, trawlers been working off there for years, had plenty of my marks flattened over time, even been some fads placed out there by locals that have moved, hope they wrecked their nets!
Simmo83 « Mon Nov 28, 2016 9:49 pm » Lowrance and Simrad are from the same parent company, Navico. Best of luck
Redshaw83 « Mon Nov 28, 2016 2:32 pm » No it doesn't show anything. I get a strip either side of white and then nothing. Dosn't change no matter what i try. Change the range and it stays the same.
Fish frames « Mon Nov 28, 2016 1:53 pm » Redshaw is your sidescan fuzzy?
Till « Mon Nov 28, 2016 12:04 pm » Anyone know if a trawler has been working off Dundee? Went to one of my marks and looks like a grader has been over it.
Redshaw83 « Mon Nov 28, 2016 8:49 am » Got a Lowrance Elite & TI on the new boat i picked up 4 weeks ago. First trip down and side scan not working. 30 min into the trip touch screen stopped working. Couldn't put in new way points. Needless to say it is going back this week to get fixed / replaced. Give the lowrance one more chance if I have problems with the next one going to go a Simrad.
bigcroc « Sun Nov 27, 2016 11:15 pm » Lowrance are made in Mehiko i hope you get a good one
Andy Grey « Sun Nov 27, 2016 8:15 pm » agreed! Hemi next time give me a holla I will deckie for ya..
Hemi « Sun Nov 27, 2016 5:10 pm » Watching the cricket is shite these days with 3rd umpire reviews!!! Shoulda gone fishing.
nomad « Sun Nov 27, 2016 3:59 pm » Yesterday, I launched at corroboree and the tilt/trim just stopped working. It made an unusual noise like it was straining a bit I had just enough prop in the water to travel along around 15km/h. I kept trying it and about ½ hr later it kicked back into normal operations again and worked fine for the remainder of the trip. Anyone have any ideas what it could be? It was an electrical problem (I think)
