I think the more that people capture this sort of action on camera the more that fishing mindsets will change. I have seen carp act aggressively on the surface before. I have also found that forktail catfish will take lures off the surface, I get them on bent minnows and tiemco dying peppers. They c...

How do you land a fish on a 9'6" 6wt without snapping the tip? Does the yak move around when casting? I love fly fishing but I just always wonder if the line would get tangled, the tip snap etc?? Is it a challenging way to fish? I always see big mullet where I fish in the yak but I don't want to flo...

If I had any technical ability (or my neighbor was home from the NT) I might fit a sounder, but I actually really like the purity of no electrics on board. I've got a 5.2m boat with a 90hp and everything electric, including a big stereo, on it. How do you fit all that stuff onto such a small vessel?
It does come down to the rod and line and reel that's being used I have a abu Garcia black max2 on a shimano starlo classix 5101 rod and cheap 10lb braid off eBay and I can cast lures as light as 5 gram with ease. When I cast I think it's like trying to crack a whip a short sharp flick of the wrist...
I used my new ABU revo premier today at the mouth of the maroochy river... Bloody awful with wind and rain, but I was able to cast light lures a long way and ended up with a couple of trevally and a good sized bream. Great reel!
My Loomis bcr802 mossyback is a great casting rod with light lures. I know people who can cast lures around 3-3.5g but I really struggle at that weight. I think that weight is more about thumb skill on the spool and how you cast rather than what rod you are using.
Thanks mcspacemonkey, I've got a black max that I use all the time in the kayak as I find it works well, casts well and catches fish! I ended buying an ABU revo premier today and it casts like a dream and weighs less than the rod I fish it with!! I've got 15 year old ABUs so I'm confident that this ...

how and what sort of sounder is best to fit to a Malibu sierra 10? I'm happy to spend about $6-700 all up on a sounder for my Kayak. I have a Garmin 750 on my boat but nothing so far on the kayak.
g'day there,I'm new to this as well. one thing that I've found is that fish fight differently from a kayak. the drag works differently as the fish is dragging you with it. I use a baitcaster as I've always liked the drag control they have but the kayak adds a different dimension ontop
G'day everyone, I'm after a new baitcaster for bass, sand flats, etc. mainly looking between a shimano core 100mg, daiwa alphas type r or an Abu premier revo3. I'll be using a loomis mossyback and casting lures from 4g-8g. any thoughts?
I'm a new member so I thought should say G'day. Anyway, I bought a kayak for "exercise" and have found fishing from it to be really fun. I live just down the road from the mighty Brisbane River and since Kayaking there I have run over, but yet to catch, several Threadfin in the shallow waters off Co...
