Re: hobie side kickers

I love the idea of sidekicks and know they would be great in calm conditions but could they have a negative effect in larger seas? Especially side on swells. I too have a revo and pretty much if i cant reach something from my seat i dont use it lol.

Re: Center 13 squid lure

Two 55cm and a 63cm were good sized though for bonito.

Re: Center 13 squid lure

Okay i was very close to giving up on this lure and i think ill still give it the thumbs down and retire it to the shed but after 3 trips and around 8hrs troll time it produced 3 good bonito all in the last hour. The pros of the lure is it dives deep, has 2 solid single hooks and suspends itself whe...

Center 13 squid lure

https://www.fishlures.com.au/fishing-lures/hard-baits/fish-inc-centre-13/ Picked one of these up from bcf the other day and think it has great potential. Im yet to use it on the yak but caught a small (45cm) king off the rocks after around 10mins while my mates using metals came up empty. It will ca...

Re: Cranka Crab Fishing Lures

They have recently added a new heavier offshore design with a single hook rather than trebles for targeting snapper.
Ive caught alot of bream on the original size but have lost plenty to snags aswell although my cast accuracy is not great lol.

Re: first fish finder

The depth sounder alarm (although annoying at times) i think is great especially with a pedal yak. Have saved my fins a few times from shallow banks.

Re: first fish finder

A few weeks ago i got a garmin 4x plus from bcf for around $200. Its got a 4.3inch screen and gps. I have only used it as a traditional finder so far but it is really easy to read and no trouble with glare.

Almost caught a hammerhead

Hi guys I had the fright of my life today at port kembla. I have only kayaked a handful of times and was having a productive session with a few rat kings on lure and a bigger one that got away after running around a lobster pot rope. I was having great fun. I caught a good sized slimey and decided t...

Re: Shimano sorocco

Thanks for the replies guys My first post probably wasnt too clear but i actually bought the sorocco on impulse and was hoping to hear that it wasnt such a bad purchase after all. It seems i really should have waited a few weeks and got the saragosa though. I used the sorocco with a 6-10kg rod as i ...

Shimano sorocco

Hey guys While walking around bcf the other day i was looking at the saragosa ive been saving for when i saw the socorro 8000sw for half the price, i could buy it on the spot and have money in my fishing fund ☺. It felt very smooth and fairly light. Being the sw (saltwater) model i assumed it was se...

Hooked on the hobie

Thanks for having me here officially as i have been trolling the forum for months, learning everything i can. Im 34 and have fished and spearfished (on and off) most of my life. Ive owned a few tinnys but for the most part have been land based as common sense kicked in (mrs) when it came to paying r...
