Motorguide - What a disappointment!

Hi All, I purchased a Motorguide 55 lb wireless electric about 3 and a 1/2 years ago. Within the first 6 months I had to have the steering replaced. I had the side plate shatter after a few weeks.

Re: Bass Comp

If you look in the bush and beach mag (Queensland) you will see the tournament calendar and that will give you the people to contact and the dates.

Re: Bass Comp

Hey Chris, I started entering comps as a non boater a few years back and I chose a comp close to my home so that I could see if I enjoyed the comp scene without having to fork out a heap in travel costs. If you have a boat of your own it would be a good idea to enter some bass bounty or basstasstic ...

Re: Motorguide steering issues

Hi Gav, I had the exact same issue with my motorguide. I took it back to the dealer as they thought it might have been rotated too far one way and the motor could not correct itself. This was found to be untrue and they had to send away for a brand new unit. It was under warranty so I was lucky. Che...

Re: Somerset ?? Is it worth a trip

Hey Mate Somereset is fishing pretty well, it is not hard to locate fish most of the time however they can be a little tricky to tempt at times. I went out on the weekend and got 7 in about 3 hours and had plenty of tugs and half hook ups. I write a fishing report for Barra Jacks in Kawana and they ...

Bass Megabucks

Hi All,

Does anyone know what the entry price for the Bass Megabucks at Somerset will be? Is it the same as the Pro Series? Also has anyone had a fish in Isis of late? I want to know if the rain has affected the bite and where in fact they are biting.

Thanks Weilo

The weather was great and I was able to locate a school near the dam wall. I was only at the dam for 2 1/2 hours and pulled in 34 bass, the biggest being 47cm and anoth...
