Re: Catch Bags

When they grab the net, the big ones give a good fight. I have a bent support circle cable from one of them. Fortunately, I was fishing from a rock projection at the time and didn't have to worry too much about the tail end spearing through the kayak.

Re: Catch Bags

IMO the style with cable rings to hold it open and gloats on top do less damage to the fish. Close continuous contact with the nylon tends to scale them, so, even using this type, its a good idea to decide early about release or keep. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1243/6738/products/DSC0064_comp...

Re: Hobie cracks

Thanks for the update. I'd say "filed away in the back of the mind" except that leaks like a sieve. I'll add a web search bookmark bookmark to my browser instead.

Re: Best 3 metre fishing kayak

If weight is more the problem than length, my solution to weight was an 11'6" thermoform (but, you'll have to pay more for the approximate 30% weight reduction): https://www.kayaksandsups.com.au/hurricane-skimmer-116-kayak As someone used to skinny kayaks, I find my Skimmer a little wide and occasio...

Re: Jackson Coosa plus rack & accessories

It's hard to know what the KFDU readership is now, so you may not be reaching a wide audience.
I avoid Facebook for a lot of reasons but imagine if you have or are willing to create an account, you could search for KFDU and find a way to advertise there.

Re: a matter of ethics when fishing

Depends. On a huge body of water loaded with structure nobody should be in your face. On crowded water with not a lot of structure it is probably good manners to cheerfully accept people will invade your fishing space. Personally, the latter are the days I avoid as my preference is water devoid of p...

Re: Back up and running

'Running' is not quite the right word but it is good to see it back. There is far too much valuable material in history to lose it.

Re: green weed location

That'd be nice if I could get out. We moved a few months ago. I am in self-imposed exile until the house is somewhat in order.

Re: Raby bay

Yep flounder has a tail, sole doesn't, that's how I think it goes. Well someone will correct me if I am wrong. just remember they both go well with a slice of lemon. NSW fisheries say you are absolutely correct. They also say Sole have a smaller mouth than Flounder. https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishi...

Re: kayak isolation

I just hope we are not on lockdown when the tailor come through . Tailor are by-catch for me but I've had some great sessions down here and am still getting oodles of 40cm Tailor close to Eden but suspect the last of the 50cm Tailor are only just past. Best for me this year was 63cm on 24 March. Th...

Re: kayak isolation

Government says the rules are clear :roll: NSW is using a new preview site. The fountain of information starts here. https://preview.nsw.gov.au/ I think it is very short on detail but I can forgive government for that. They haven't had a lot of time to get research, write and verify rules will work ...
