Re: Fun Fishing with Ferry's

This jackass cut in between me and the Rough Rock buoy (about 20m). I'm going to contact Fuller's and see if they actually train their captains or just pull hobo's off the street. :headbang: The chap I knew who was a Fuller's Ferry Captain and a good bloke, left, and started work on the Barges, bec...

Re: First go live baiting

I used to have a Sushi restaurant , the ones like the one in the photo, are general purpose fish knives, with larger ones, for larger fish, longer ones for slicing sashimi and a rectangular jobby for vegetables.

Re: First go live baiting

Fine knives those, I remember shopping for them in the restaurant supplies district of Tokyo back in the day... Wish I still had one, I'll have to go and find one I guess :)

That wooden handled knife, at the top of the photo, that looks like a Japanese Chef's knife, do you know where it came from?

If you find out where their house is, frozen grapefruit or lemons, lobbed onto their roof, from a wee way away, in the 3am, can be enjoyable. More effective if you've played cricket or baseball.

Re: How to read Side Scan/view fish finders

Thanks for that, yes that seems to correspond with my experience of the 7sv. In terms of how deep the transducer is installed in the scupper well, mine is about 1cm below the lip laterally, but a little more longitudinally, due to the keel. Doesn't seem to affect the performance see this pic::: FF02...

Re: Non return scupper plugs

ahhh, good to know, I ordered a couple from Coro Kayaks, they're 34 mm in diameter which is less than my scuppers, but I'm going to glue them into my existing 'cup' scupper plugs and see how they go.

I don't much launch from sand but I will take care to keep em clean

thanks for that observation.

Non return scupper plugs

I've seen on the youtubery, that the Old Town Predator PDL comes with scupper plugs that have a non return valve in them, allowing water to go out, but not in. Does any one have any idea where I could get 3 of these? And if any one has these, what's the diameter of them? oops, here they are - https:...

Re: How to read Side Scan/view fish finders

Frankly in WA if my side scan is not wor...

"but it was all undersized snapper." I feel your pain, I was out three times at dawn this last week, like you, all baby snapper, I used squid bait, an orange slider and a plastic, only babies were caught. I did get one large bite, but no hook up. I reckon it's the warmer water? This time last year, ...

Re: Shark incident at Cavallis

I think that Cavallis incident is one I read about being a 7 ft mako shark ~ https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/arti ... d=12177774
Injuries but not life threatening, and he kept the Kingi !!!

Makes my Bronze Whaler incident, seem very tame.
