but I had seen my first seahorse in the wild. :lek:
Probably just coming home after last week's Melbourne Cup mate, would be long slow trip for a seahorse.

Re: Beast Tilapia

It really is a pity we can't eat them - seems wasteful! Still, it was good to have this fish out of the system. Adam that's a hefty tilly, and would have been good fun. Although no eating is the rule, know many that are eating the fillets of good sized fish while still disposing of scraps in a prop...

Re: Wallis Lakes Fishing

He had forgotten to take the trolley and wheels off, when he launched. Got to have a laugh at someone's expense every now and again. Mate fun outings and some nice results. Think most yakkers leave the kart in at launch at least once. About 18 months ago same issue, after about half an hour on wate...

Re: Transducer mount

All transducers I have used [various brands] have just been pushed into blob of warmed sealant inside the hull, then left to cure for a couple of days and been OK.

Found warming sealant in hot water or sun made it a bit more fluid to use.n

Re: Problem with Watersnake

Kikid today as a result of this thread decided to do a first time turning experiment, as the breeze was gentle and water flat. Was cruising along on Lo speed, pulled my steering PVC tube extension over till it touched me and could go no further and reckon the prop was at about a 45 degree angle to t...

Re: need a mods help

I had a post up on the Mid Coast Bass Bash with 15 pics & write up - pushed 'preview' and it all disappeared, including the pics I was logged out, just for looking at it! Any other ideas?? Roberta have had similar happen many times over the years when writing long articles [on other forums as well]...

Re: My first big bass

Ramjet congrats on that bass mate, but actually is you that has now been hooked on those great sport fish. As others have said buy a silicone net, I put off buying one for over 20 years due to the cost, instead buying cheaper other no knot styles of net. Eventually decided to bite the bullet and bou...

Re: Problem with Watersnake

Just looking at you photos I am wondering if the motor needs to be further back. If it was close to the centre of the kayak I would imagine thhat it would be difficult to steer. I have found that the motor is a godsend if I have to return a couple of kilometers against a strong wind My thoughts wer...

Re: Problem with Watersnake

Pics of my setup - 15kg battery in the back hatch Looking at those pics just cannot understand why the yak is not steering OK. In the first pic perhaps the prop thrust might bounce of the hull when turned, but pics 2 and 3 with the prop deeper in water look good. My biggest gripe is that I expected...

Re: Problem with Watersnake

The kingfisher has a molded keel at the rear so maybe that is the problem. Mate am familiar with the KIngfisher and know my Swing also has a keel similar, just visible in third picture of the earlier link. One difference is my battery is only 11kgs and I put it up front to trim the yak flatter with...

Re: Problem with Watersnake

Hi all Just fitted a t24 watersnake to my wavedance kingfisher - watched the youtube clip and fitted the same. Tried the motor last night, plenty of thrust but the kayak refuses to turn. A 24lb should work great on the Kingfisher, have many mates using them with success on different yaks. I have an...

On bottom bar of all forum index pages is "Delete Cookies", clicking that should fix it permanently.

And then just log in again as before.

Roberta, Dave one of the former fly anglers here, carried a square meter piece of shade cloth and just spread it over his over legs and drive etc on his Hobie when using fly ..... seemed t...
