Re: The difference between Bass & EPs .... Starlo's take on

The rest is good, but I've caught a lot of bass with pale eyes, so i don't think that's a particularly strong defining feature.

I'm still getting my legs on North Pine Dam, but the fish clearly have a size advantage over Lake K!

Second time's a charm - North Pine Dam

With the start of the bass season came the first day of the BAS license to access a lake i've wanted to fish for a while. Just over the road from Kurwongbah, my usual haunt, lies a much bigger lake with wildly varying terrain. Skinny in the northern reaches and deep at the bottom end, with much stee...

Re: plastic kayak alternative to a stealth ?

Yeah, that's what i was talking about. Profish 45 with a hatch. It's worth adding a seal and straps to the hatch lid if you're going to run it like that, I've had waves lift the lid when it's just held by the bungees. The reload can't do that due to the tackle pod, but looking at my mate's 400 it sh...

Re: plastic kayak alternative to a stealth ?

Weight makes more of a difference in the surf zone, but if it is that important to you then glass is it. Viking reloads and 45s surf well enough, but don't punch out like a stealth. 34kg is par for course if you want oceangoing speed in plastic. While you won't get a good, cobia swallowing fish hatc...

Re: Maroon Dam in Winter.

I cracked out the ol' fly rod on saturday to do the same, but yeesh it's been a while! I need to build some new leaders to turn over the big flies. Are you getting them shallow or sinking to get the schooled bass? I was only getting little ones out of the lilies, couldn't reach the schools. I imagin...

Re: Ad now, for something completely different clever new "y

Basically just a skiff like the stealth uno, but with a lot more proprietary doodads, and without the famous stealth hatch.

Pretty design, but I'd rather go the stealth or solo.

Re: New yak recommendations

Stealth really is THE option for pure offshore, but if you're going to fish around rocky shallows, estuaries, rivers, it might be worth going for a plastic yak like the viking reload as they can take a real beating. But the stealths are just so good at what they do that it might be worth getting one...

Re: Flatties are soooo on!

Last August we pulled some real monsters out from the flats at jacobs well, just behind dinner island.

Haven't been down that way yet this year, but been getting good numbers up between wello point and viccy point. Pretty keen to hit the pin soon though.

All the weird fish in Raby Bay!

The tides were a bit off on the weekend, my usual plan revolves around a dawn high but this was too early, and the following low tide was very low! But we figured the snapper would still be hanging around the edges of the reefs, and the overcast conditions and a slight breeze could only help matters...

Re: Any Advice ?

Yeah, I'll echo the sentiment about getting a longer kayak. The nextgen doesn't live up to its implied weight rating, and it gets very tippy with a heavier bloke up on the perch. Also, the centre console is seriously underwhelming when you actually go to put anything in it. Longer yaks are faster an...

Re: This kayak anygood for Goldcoast offshore Palmy?

Yeah, you could totally fish off that ski! Not sure about how water tight you could get a diy hatch big enough to store rods, I'd look at nose mounting them in a dry bag. Look up "Pedro's rod bag", he's a local guy at noosa making them. The nose of that ski is plenty long enough. The only other thin...

Re: Kurwongbah Saratoga - The Myth. The Legend.

Paul, a few are released in to provide genetic diversity, but they've established a breeding population in the lake. They seem to be going fairly well, too. I guess they may have been native to the area way back when, but they were added to the dam after construction. Rocket, fish gotta eat! Probabl...

Kurwongbah Saratoga - The Myth. The Legend.

For the last few months i've been targeting the toga in lake k to try and get some read on their population. The upper reaches of that lake are prime real estate for the species, but it's hard to tell if they're thriving with the environmental and nutritional aspects. After dropping many, many fish,...
