    May sound a little silly asking... But alot of reels cant be dipped in water right? I got sand in my reel and it was making a grinding noise, so i wanted to lightly spray it down to try and get rid of some, however the BF insists that i can not do this. On top of that, are there many reels out there that are water resistant? Google has been my friend lately, but some reels dont state whether or not its water resistant.
  2. Fishing spots in Adelaide

    Just popping by to find out what reels u guys are using (preferably spinning reels) Im after a new outfit and am looking for a reel within the $200-300 mark Heard the Shimano stradics are quite good. Anyone here own one? Also tossing between the Daiwa Sol and the Quantum Energy PtiB reel. Quantum reels are quite hard to source here in Australia but I love the look of it, and the rave reviews ive been reading. If youve got another reel that I could get for that price bracket which you think is better, please do share! Thanks

    I caught threadfin at st lucia so there seems to be quite a few in the bris river as of late, also a few snapper! Yeah i googled how to take the itch away from sandfly/midgy bites but nothing works. Havent tried the scotch tape but i did put clear nail polish but the itch was still there. Went to the chemist to get anaesthetic antiseptic cream specially made for insect bites and stings, but thats shit too. Only reason why i bother coz i got my brothers wedding to go to this saturday and i didnt want to scratch. Turns out I had nearly 50 bites counted all up all over my arms and my legs anyway. I look like i slept naked at a camp in the bush. *sigh* ah well GUYS! REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT ROD AND REELS UR USING?? I want a new outfit and was trying to find info on Daiwa Sol's, Shimano Stradic's, and the Quantum Energy Pti-B reels. More keen on the Quantum reel for the looks and for the good reviews ive read, however theyre quite hard to source in Australia. Reviews of rods and reels for each brand can be found at www.tackletour.com Cheers!

    Yeah get back into it! Alot of people think fishing is boring, but its worth it when you feel something on your line and you know you've hooked something. Great adrenalin rush when its something BIG! We caught Snapper, Trevally, Mackeral, Tuna and a few other fish that day. We were using PENN Overhead Cast rods, and spinning rods. I went where the skipper and the boat took me, so im not sure what you mean by spinning bait schools? Anyhoo i headed to GC the other day to target a flew flatty's. I got smashed by little mozzys/midgys/sand flys all over my damn legs. THe itch is unbearable!!!! I left the insect repellant at home by accident. Anybody know any good shit to use on my legs to stop the itching? Cheers
  5. Motorbike License

    I did a Q ride session. Still to do the nxt few. Trying to look into ways of getting a marine boat license too lol Then Ill get to ride a brand spanking new Kawasaki 250r. Now they arent the beastiest of bikes, but good to start off with. So u mite want to look into getting one of those. 2nd hand should be around 5500 - 6000 if ur good at bargaining. A CBR 250RR would be an ideal option too. Think smart. I guess some people can handle 600cc+ bikes str8 after doing a qride, but ive heard about alot of people eating turf as well. I guess everyone is different! Hope all goes well for the bike license

    Me and the good ol tuna!!!! Caught it out on a charter trip
  7. Fishing spots in Adelaide

    My fishing thread died in the Qld section.. seems to be more keen fishermen in Adelaide!! Anyhoo i wanted to share wat i caught today whilst out charter fishing for my birthday! Took me 20 mins to reel in..

    HAHA hows everyones fishing goin? I decided to go for a fish this arvo for less than an hour.. and landed myself THISSSSSSSSSS!!! Good ol bream... and i was stil in uniform too. How unlady like *shrugs* Going on a fishing charter next tuesday for a bit of game fishing. Should be fun...

    I pulled in after work and Spotted a green and black silvia outside Shell where the airport is. Im assuming its a worker

  11. Drive RICHARD BRANDSON comp!

    Ahhh I love richard branson man.. he gave me my job! Id offer to drive him around... on my foot falcon lol

    ohhhH congrats booostin! I went to Jacobs Well today and caught myself 2 whiting, a bream, and a tree (unfortunately i had to release that catch).. haha I was so pleased after the dry spell ive been having lately. I went to a good spot. Found my own. And even 3 hrs past hightide, there were fish jumping out of the water left right and centre. I just wanted a big ass drag net and a boat to catch them ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL jk Ive been fishing nearly everyday this week. Sad but true. Hopefully for my birthday in 2 weeks, i get a Charter Boat fishing session! Ill let u guys know if that happens

    ahhhh man AM I THAT BAD AT FISHING? FAR OUT! Im determined as hell though... Ive been googling so much about fishing techniques and what sort of bait/lures to use to catch certain species of fish. I even got a book on how to tie knots, tide times, breeds of fish and which area to find them in, seasons, set ups etc etc. I even did alot of youtubing to watch some pro cast and retrieval methods. I followed it to the tea and still got fk all *frowns* So this morning i went to BCF for the millionth time, and i got some more soft plastics to try and have some more options readily available. Now ive got : * Squidgy Gary Glitter Fish * Berkleys Gulp 3" Minnow watermelon pearl * Berkleys Gulp 3" Minnow New Penny * Berkleys Gulp 3" Grub pumpkin seed * Berkleys Gulp 2" Natural Baby shrimp I used a 1/6 jighead with a 1.0 hook. I sometimes also use the 1/4 jighead. To increase my chances i also have the fish attractant spray, burley and chicken guts. I dont use them all together. Just on different fishing trips. I also use frozen prawns and squid on occasions. What do u guys think about what i have been using??? When im at a certain location ill try different things. I went to the Bris river today at Oxley to try my luck. I had to basically go into bush and tall grass, and then balance over a long skinny log (over water) to get to a set of rocks which were to the side of the river. I know that it was at least a 1.5 meter drop off the rocks. There were mangroves around too. I only basically had 2 X 1m standing space so it was a very hidden spot!! Anyhoo, i got nothing there after an hour or so, so i headed over to Jindalee. I saw a little old man there and asked how he was going. He said he'd been there for only 30 minutes and to look inside his bucket. He had a MASSIVE BREAM and a few catfish. I was shocked and excited at the same time. He left after ONE hour with fish in tow. I tried for a good 2 hrs and got zipoo. IT WAS SO FUSTRATING! I was determined not to give up but it started to get too dark so i put it off for next time. The man was using prawns and was bait fishing. He did nothing but sit there 10m away from his rod. Am i trying too hard??? The brisbane river has so much junk in it its not funny!! I snagged onto something three times in the middle of the open water. I basically lost 3 jigheads today and had to sit there tying it all over again. Anyhoo thats my update for today. Im doing normal fulltime hours from now on so the only chance i'll get is the weekend *sniffles*... I guess i can just google earth some places til i find somewhere good. * Oh does anybody also know why you cant fish on the Yerongapilly pontoon??? I went there today and there was a sign? *

    Oh wednesday was mad fun I woke early and headed up to nudgee again. There were too many people about because of the darn public holiday! So I headed out to Shornecliffe jetty til around 2pm, half hour past hightide. It was SOOOOO choppy. There were alot of little fish that i could see through the water but I didnt end up catching nothing but a tiny little pufferfish. I was using soft plastics that day. It didnt seem to attract much of anything which was fustrating but still fun. The men next to us caught a BIGASS flathead. I was so jealous >. WISH ME LUCK! hope u guys have been luckier than myself with your fishing! Oh my tip would be to probably head to nudgee where the boat ramp is with some crab pots to catch some crabs. THERE ARE SERIOUSLY BIG CRABS in there. Im thinking of bringing some crab pots up there nxt time just for crabbing. I seem to be a little unsuccessful at catching decent sized fish at nudgee.
  15. Pet Hates

    ^ ^ or u? Different things bother different people. I just dont like waiting for idiots that diddle daddle around when its really busy. Have you not tried to pull in to pour fuel on a cheap day? Or try and park when there are no parks around? People like to take their time and are inconsiderate. Im one of those people who try to walk across a crossing quickly, run into fuel stations so i can gtfo for other people to pour. Its pretty basic to at least try and be considerate. I guess if i were to sum up my list it'd = INCONSIDERATE PEOPLE much better? LOL
