Re: kayak isolation

Fishing definitely allowed in NSW and QLD as its passive exercise but VIC are really cracking down on people going out. I plan on going out the easter break however most parks have been closed by the local councils so it might be a decent carry to the water. You going to be painting a big target on ...

Re: Problem with Watersnake

My yaks a sit in but I find it's a bit like riding a bike, you need to lean into the turn a bit. For sharp, very low speed turns sometimes you need to reverse your speed controller

Re: Why wont my lure dive.

I've had the occasional lure were they have forgotten the internal rattle weight so the lure will only swim very slowly, this can be a good or bad thing depending on your application. You might try a bit of wire wrapped around the fount hook, the other problem is cheap hooks on a cheap lure, buy the...

Re: blue mountains fishing???

Last trip to Oberon back in May it was a redfin every cast till I got bored catching them, decent fish up to 35 cm, didn't see any trout,it's a tough fishery now.
