    I do not really like fishing Monkey, but it has always produced good numbers of fish.. Probably more productive then a few of my so called “good spots”. The main reason I go there is to get paddle crabs.

    Prawns are cheap enough when purchase on special. A packet can last several trips, but crabs are a much better bait for Rig.

    Socky , sand is our enemy when it comes to reels …… you mightnt see any amongst the stones , but even so – it’s a good habit to get into , putting the reel down handle first ….if you must place the rod on the ground …….

    Hey fishforpot, you are so right about looking after the reel properly.But killing it early in its life will force me to buy a new and better one.

    Lmao , good point ……

    But what happens when youve hooked that once in lifetime fish , and those few grains of sand cause the drag to lock up ? …..bugga

    Like I teach the boys at work , it’s the insignificant litlethings that make the difference over time , HABIT ….make it habit and ya dont need to think

    Hmmm, I wonder if/when the commercial pricks will make it not worthwhile going to Bayleys for a fish.

    Sand and saltwater are only a problem if you don’t use alvey reels, worst case scenario you might have to do a 3 minute dis-assemble and re-assemble on the go to get some sand out but not often.

    I went to Bayleys a couple of times around Christmas last year when the commercial boats were out and it was surprisingly dead, even tried some spots up to 1km down the beach. Maybe I picked bad days or something.

    Never heard of alveys exploding, but after searching I see that has happened to some people, one recommendation is to wet the line before winding it on, and don’t wind it on too tightly.
