ouch, anyway, i miss fishing up there mili, maybe i should move back up lol. prawns, aren’t they a bit expensive to use as bait lol.15/11/2011 at 3:34 am #19315
If I am ever up that way we should hook up.Get it!.I kill me…..lol15/11/2011 at 3:38 am #19316
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.15/11/2011 at 6:58 am #19321fishforpotParticipant
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 …….15/11/2011 at 7:01 am #19322elmo22Participant

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.15/11/2011 at 8:50 am #19327St_PaulParticipant

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 think15/11/2011 at 7:37 pm #19329
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.15/11/2011 at 7:48 pm #19330BirdlingsflatParticipant
(fish at Bayleys??)–of course not..theres always a few left for us..I used an alvey for straylining up north for a few years til during a massive kingi fight my mates exploded into a thousand pieces..CRACK!!..poss under the huge wound up line pressure..and maybe there was a crack in the spool..bits of fiberglass in his face..good thing Mike wore glasses….15/11/2011 at 8:49 pm #19331
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.
