Re: Bass electric boat - HULL ONLY

Hard to explain!! Has a V nose, but stays fairly flat for back 3/4 of boat...goes good in a bit of chop, and is still stable at rest. Probably havn't helped much hey!

Hi guy,

I am looking to buy a Minnkota maxxum 74 or 80lb bowmount, or a 24v motorguide in similar cable steer and thrust.

Totally agree with the kids skulling fish in off the bank. We used to do that out west with handlines on yellowbelly :lol: Like you said, you definatley get more hookups using lighter gear, and the bustoffs too. Its a fine line, which does require more skill. I think you will really notice it when t...

Re: The sport of fishing

I certainly can see the merit in your questions and they are worth asking too. With relation to the barra, a bit of history could hopefully easy your mind a little. Impoundment barra fishing is a relatively new sport. In its humble and esky filling beginings, impoundment barra were relatively easy t...

I like Mikes idea regarding the team format entry remaining the same to keep numbers even. I like Steve M's idea of 1 session, mabey a second somewhere in the tour dedicated to boater/non boater just to mix it up. Awoonga evening event would be perfect. Like Jas said, that gives everyone a chance to...

I used to use spiderwire stealth, it was excellent. Now use 50lb FINS for barra and have never broken it. Casts like 20lb braid and has awesome knot strength. I reckon you could easily get away with 30lb FINS too. Awesome reel, deserves good braid.
