Re: At last - Tuna season arrived

Mainly use them for bait, never tried to eat them as I've read they're not the best eating. Ah, ok. Not many people eat them but I have had good success making a 'canned tuna' type dish out of them https://www.kfdu.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=51714 . In Hawaii they do use them for poke but I ...

Re: At last - Tuna season arrived

Man, I wish the tuna came in really close like that up there. I heard they were practically on the beach some days last week.

Three longtails in a week would make anyone happy.

What do you do with the mac tuna (I like them too, just interested to hear how you use them)?

Re: Good remount videos

Good idea - no one should be out on the water without being able to remount. Got to love Oscar Chalupsky - anyone who can be world champion at 49 years of age is tough and clued up in one. Also love the practicality of his advice e.g. (for those trying to paddle boats more elite than their skills) '...

Re: Flood

Thanks for the thoughts.

I'm all good, not in a flood risk area at all. Only had no power for a day and some days in lock down as roads flooded.

But I know of lots of people that have been directly effected and some pretty harrowing stories amongst them.

I am seriously considering one for my wife because she does not need to unlearn Euro paddling.
Cool, I have a spare so let me know if you want to borrow the GP to try out. All mine are two pieces.

Re: 2018

Thanks Whisky, Yeah, you definitely need to get the rudder fixed on the Dorado. Prime paddling season is not far away. Have you still got the double you use to go out with your son in? With the Greenland Paddle (GP) i had been toying with getting one for a few years now - as a spare paddle. GPs are ...

Re: Sun Protection

Search 'base layer' on the E of Bay and you will find lots of lightweight long tights and shirts. A bit like Skins rip-offs - generally about $20 each including postage.

Great read - a quickie how do you get your Mirage on yr roof racks - slide from back or just grab the cockpit and lift up?
Yeah, I just grab the cockpit and lift straight on. I take all the fishing gear off it before I load up so is pretty light.

Re: Fishing Echuca/Murray River

Probably no better than you already know but I got a few 5-8kg ones years ago just slow rolling medium-sized hardbody lures past weed beds in the lakes.

The best 'clip' I know is a spinlink clip.
Got to agree. I did a post up about them (There are other brands) a while ago here: https://www.kfdu.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=50388

Re: Another Year Down, 2018 North Queensland

Thanks all - glad I can stir up a little nostalgia for the North :grin: Nice one, pity about the sharks. Yeah, someone else said to me it looks to have been my best year of sharks yet (that is saying something!). I actually think 2017 was the peak - catching one on a metal jig and another on a troll...
