Re: Hobie backwards mirage drive

Instant reverse with both hands on the rod.
No lost seconds fumbling with a lever.
Its a winner for me.
Someone build a PA with a Propel drive n i would be one of the first to sign up.
Can only hope the new Titan is as good as claimed.

Re: Battery life

I would suspect either battery is not holding charge or your charger is inappropriate and not fully charging it. Has this just happened or is this best its been/ new set up? There'll be other settings on your sounder you can turn down or turn off to get better battery life out of it, but it's also ...

Re: Sounder under $400 suggestions?

Great tips on the Garmin plugs guys. Certainly one to remember. Cant help but wonder if the disproportionate number of claims made against Lowrance has something to do with just how many are out there in relation to the competition. I've had plenty of Lowrances n all bar one were faultless but i do ...

Re: Sounder under $400 suggestions?

No experience at all with the bird, but looked at the Garmin. On sale for $399 with down view, I reckon its great value for money, even if you DONT require the GPS (note NOT chartplotter) functionality that comes with it. My only concern with these units & the suitability for use on kayaks is the co...

Re: Glenelg River Camping Trip - EP and Mulloway

Yeah, I used 20 odd different lures I think, perhaps more over the course of the time there. I tried all sorts to get some results. I got my 3 EP's casting to the structure from the downstream side and working back reasonably slowly. Dont be afraid to work that structure from different angles, coz ...

Agree 110%!
Funny how many say reverse is overrated, but are climbing over themselves for the new 180 drive. :lol:

Re: Glenelg River Camping Trip - EP and Mulloway

A magical place it is indeed! I never tire of the place even if the weather is sometimes a little ordinary. Whilst wet, at least the wind stayed away. That would've made the fishing a little more difficult! I've only ever put the yak in there once and that was in the lower reaches, but the higher re...

It looks like a tranquil place.
Certainly one river I am yet to get to but hopeful of doing soon.

Great little vid Yella.
Thought HOLY COW, with your first capture, that bream is HUGE! Then realised it was a grunter.

Re: Why I switched to Native Watercraft Slayer Propel 13

My Slayers are a bit over 12 months old now and I haven't had any reason yet to doubt the purchase. In fact, the recent capture of a PB beating 47cm Black bream probably wouldn't have been achievable in anything but a native! Thats a story for another time perhaps. Resale might be better with a PA, ...

Buy a PVR or stream it later n at your leisure on freeview or Plus7. Yeah, have some of those, and will do it, but don't often have a grand total of 7 hours to be watching except over a period of weeks! If I'm not working or with family, I'm on the water. :lol:[/quote] I hear you. Squeeze an hour h...
