Re: Seal Ply Wood Deck & Floor

LL,
For what its worth I was told to just paint the entire surface with bondcrete a few times to protect the ply. I did this in a couple of my boats with no problems (at least for a couple of years before I sold the boat's).

Re: replacing top guide

jay,
use a lighter and heat the old tip until it slides off, then put on the new tip with some epoxy glue. Its that easy!

Re: Bream on the full moon

punch, This is true, the bream spawn leading up to the full moon and as a result the days following can be hit and miss. But in saying that September is not really a spawning month (at least in Brisbane). Best bet is just to go fishing if you have the chance and not worry about the science stuff, ju...

We’ll catch whatever sized fish you tell us to. An across the board size limit would be very advantageous.

Re: Scarborough Reef

Jay, Try fishing further south of the green tripod, bout halfway would be as good a place to begin your searching and mental mapping of the area. bugger the anchor off, use artificials for better results. Beware the yaks, you can run them over if not looking, especially this time of the year when th...

Re: Scarborough Reef

Jason, The stick would have to be the heaviest fished area, must be like a beacon for boaties. Good fish can still be caught there though, fishes best when conditions are uncomfortable for most. My best advice would be to get familliar with the area in winter when the water in jin clear, especially ...

Re: Scarborough Reef

Jay, You will have far more success fishing with plastics or hardbody lures in this area. If you don't have an electric bow mount motor drifting the wide rubble patches and casting down wind will get you onto the pinkies. Often fishing right on top of the reefs and amongst all the boats can get you ...

Re: Mud Island

Jay, Mud Island isn't that far out past the re-claimed river mouth. it can look a long way at times but is only a 15min trip in a tinny. Most conditions under 15knts is safe (dependant on the skipper) just as long as it wasn't blowing 30knts the night before. Mud fishes better when a bit of wind is ...

Re: WHY ????????

Import duty and freight then the retailer has to add his profit margin so they can try make a living, then add GST! which may actually go up soon. I believe NZ has increased their GST to 15% recently.
