  1. How old is it?? I'd be returning under warranty if its still within that period. Secondly, email Lowrance support, they may suggest a software update or another fix! http://www.lowrance.com/en-au/contact-lowrance/ If not as above.
  2. From memory Im pretty sure @Scratchiehas done some kayak fishing up there in the past? Anyway if not bein a local I'm sure he would have some names he could pass onto you?
  3. The OP is from NZ. Sounds like he has a potential buyer over here & wants to know the in's & out's of exporting costs, imports duties, transport costs etc. @Swivelfish that is another factor to consider which is import duty. Not sure how this applies to 2nd hand products from new but probably doesn't matter. Something you also need to look into. I have known people who have imported cars here but that's because of either rareity & non availability here of because after all the costs involved it worth their while to save the coin. That's the chal

  5. Nice result, you cant complain when your catch looks like the display wall at the fish market, then you know youve had a good day Never eaten trag, whats it like @Pickles??
  6. Anytime you can catch a feed its happy days Looks like grilled Bream with pea risotto? If you would like to share your recipes with the other members then this would be the right area for it- http://shxcszc.com/forum/42-the-kitchen/
  7. Well I cant give you an answer nor actual advice but just give you the melting temperature of lead which is 327.5*C give or take depending on other elements. Actually what I would say is that trying to melt lead in a lead pot wouldnt end well I dont think
  8. Great to see a Tassie devil doing the damage, the old favourites still bring it Sounds like a good result but your a better man that me releasing those tasty fish!
  9. Ok mate I'll have beef fillet & bearnaise sauce with my grilled lobster tail thanks, surf & turf.................... 🦞🐄.......mmmmmmmm 🤣 Great stuff Brendan, I'd love to pull a couple of crays out of some crevaces only I have a fear..............................of the great white sharks that frequent PS! Can you get them in water up to your knees 🤣 Another great report & day for you on the water
  10. Nothing beats getting onto different types of boats to "feel" what is the difference is. But failing having the opertunity to do that I would be doing some research through sites like these to get some sort of understanding- http://discoverboating.com.au/get-involved/boat-buyers-guide/boat-types/ http://www.boatsales.com.au/editorial/details/trailerboating-choosing-a-vee-hull-115148/ Personally for bay/estuary , all you need is a 4m alloy like a quintrex or stacer etc with a 25PH tiller steer. BUT you need to establish how many peop
  11. Dan, you need to give more details when you post otherwise its very hard to give you the right information! Like- Land or boat based?? Intended types of target species?? Anyway mean time maybe have a look at some previos threads- http://shxcszc.com/search/?q=norah&quick=1
  12. Nice work on the king, still a lot of fun at that size On the burley, I dont think it would hurt to have a log in a mesh bag attached to the kayak, is saying that there is also the chance it could attrack the occassional shark 😬 I mean you could also cube as well or maybe some mushed up pilchards in a bread slurry which could bring snapper along as well as the kings butit can easily drift away in current so its nice to also have a larger amount of scent that is drawing then towards you imo. But yes there are a number of ways you could approach this.
  13. @dan006, nothing wrong with Daiwa or any other brand really but it is all about your budget. Generally the quality of any reel increases with the budget but yes you do need to look at the specifications & the materials plus build quality of any brand, reel or rod. What is your interpitation of peer fishing & what is your intended target/s?? What is on offer at one peer does not mean all are the same. There have been quite a few examples on here to show how decent sized fish can be caught on cheap rod combo's. The main difference is do you want
  14. If anyone or group finds there local community is in the need of something that requires funding, like for instance improved fish cleaning tables/areas, access improvements & any other project then now is the time to apply for grants. Applications close 30th October! http://www.facebook.com/NSWDPIFisheries/ http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/fishing/recreational/recreational-fishing-fee/licence-fees-at-work/apply-for-funds?fbclid=IwAR3721PLV6-iN0y_lUQ1GW2aQlXatMtKLV17UQJHUoVVPhOQRZRlDSmhIuY
  15. Yep, it's called practice! And should be done before you get to the ramp imo There are plenty of open spaces & large car parks you can take your trailer to practice!
