Been bitten off by some toothy critters, going to use some wire, this stuff looks good, easy to use too. 👍

I stopped using that stuff some years ago, I posted earlier about single strand wire in various strength that is easily twisted, I use that 50-60Lb in final lengths of 600mm, does not stand out.

Yes, I know, I’m a bit lazy and got stabbed in the thumb with straight wire. Pain is a great turn off. 😉

Winter whiting must be on, I like whiting, but they are smaller than their southern cousins.

Yes, unfortunately we don't get the big King George Whiting up here, but we do get other big fish to make up for it ;).

When I was doing a project at a Vic factory years ago I went on a fishing charter and on the way out the skipper was talking to me and asked where I was from, I told him Queensland and he said laughingly, 'this trip may just disappoint you', lol.

Empty boat has been found. Whale strike?
Possible. Had a close call out off Mooloolaba years ago and another while fishing out on Swains, also a neighbour was an RACQ rescue helicopter pilot several years ago and they rescued a guy from a reef out off Mooloolaba, a whale had come up underneath a fibreglass Cat and tipped it over.

My mate just sent me this pic. His dog was down on the pontoon, when this mullet jumped onto it. 🤣 🤣 Said it's not the first time that it has happened.

My hands are not as steady these days ( before I get the stupid comments, Parko), this is called a third hand, around $10 from jaycar. Makes holding things sooo easy.

They are great, when I was building the MAFv Modifiers for members I used mine all the time while soldering.
