on the board for 2014.Went out sat in the kayak lost a 5 or 6 pounder followed by two 6 inch trout lol.Went out again sunday and second cast hooked a perch,then a 3 pound sea run very healthy (for the smoker) also caught a few mor 6 inch trout.
na have not caught a gurnard off the beaches down here.Im off on a fishing trip to frazer island off the coast of north queensland on Friday for a couple of weeks so I will get my fair share of string pullers soon.Went there last year and was hooking up almost everycast with different species coming in .Esp liked catching a fish called tailer…[Read more]
so rig and trout fuck off during winter at least the blue cod still hang around.Its probably a bit different down on the south coast than it is up you ways.Do moki leave as well?Im pretty sure gurnard stay put too.
went for a fish out the back of riverton yesterday.Tide was going out and it was flat as .Launched a 8oz weight with the bait launcher out about 170m 3 times and caught nothing.On another rod with a 5oz break out sinker I cast about 80m and caught 5 spotty/spiky dogfish,was hoping for a rig but looks like ill need to wait for the water to warm up a little?
the pvc is rated to about 180psi and is quiet thick walled.
I made up some ice clyinders in off cuts of the pvc pipe containing a baited hook and weight and burly tied on to a swivel and launched them .One went about 120m and one about 200m when the line snapped (I need to use shock leader or steel trace).I was only at 80 psi and 90psi.
Im keen…[Read more]
put the crab net in a quiet bay and got 6 small paddle crabs then drove over the hill to tihaka beach.First bait out 5 mins later the reel began peeling line out (luckly I had the drag set lightly).50 odd metres down the beach and a few mins later a nice rig.
used the rest of the bait up,no more bites.
yes it seems the best trigger is a modified sprinkler valve,you take out the solenoid and replace it with a air gun trigger.Its apparently 10 times more efficient than a ball valve so less pressure is needed.good for 300 350 m with a 7-10 oz weight.
[quote="fishforpot":3uxunwvi]?? I fished a few times last year with a cannon ….237mtrs was the last cast ….ended up foul hooking a dolphin lmao ..
The trigger is the key …less efficient the trigger the higher the air pressure needed for serious distance .
We havent got the best trigger , so needed 160psi for that cast , may have even been…[Read more]
na didnt see it on tv.My closest beach has a slow gradient and is usually at least 150m of waves it is shallow unless you get out the back.So i usually fish further away beaches so hence wanting to cast along way.I can cast 60-80m at a guess so been looking at options ,will see how it goes.
Took the kayak out had a few follow ins with the lures but the lake was getting raped by nonstop boats trawling, didnt even bother going out after a few days, everything was spooked.
got a nice rainbow in the upper manorburn dam was well worth the drive up there,700m avove sea level.
also a few browns in the clutha.
