Ahhh, thats easy, I got nothing. But considering I am working on the other side of the world than where my family is, that is understandable.
I will be having my Xmas cheer when I get back at the end of Jan. Bummer but someone has o do it.

P.s Merry Xmas to all

Santa was fantastic - and spot on time with all those other committments as well - how does he do it???
4.55m centre console poly with a 50hp 4st Honda ;D ;D ;D
Am i a happy man ;)
Christened yesterday - a mate and me went for a spin in the Tweed with a stiff early morning northerly that dropped out quickly. No fish boated for the first 45mins then went to a very reliable little spot for some plastic flicking. Hoping i would boat the first fish (it is my boat :-X) Hooked up to a beautiful flathead - to the sound of girlie squeels - got to the side of the boat - head shake - stiff drag from no maintenence after last outing and no checking on my behalf ::) - turned for a final run and was self released >:( >:( Lots of swearing from me and laughter from my mate who as luck would have it hooked up less then 30secs later and subsequently boated the first fish :-[ :-[. Needless to say NOT HAPPY JAN >:(
That was his one and only - I hooked landed and released another 4 ::) But alas will not take the honour of boating the first fish :-/
Other than that - super happy with the new toy - it will take me another 3years to work out the matrix17 with gps :-X
Hope you all had and will continue to have a fantastic festive season with safety and loved ones - and never take anyone with you on your maiden voyage - you can then be assured of boating the first fish ;)
Take care everyone and have a great couple of days ;)

Well I was told that Santa was bringing all these things but then noticed them on my credit card account. I think he's a fraud. :o :o :o :o


26-12-2004, 04:04 PM
I can't believe it....I just can't believe it. After all this time...Santa, is not real....

26-12-2004, 04:38 PM
I spent the day with family

including the Grandson, doesn't get much better than that.

Merry Christams to all the Defence people overseas away from thier familys.


26-12-2004, 04:46 PM
Santa's real,
Don't worry. Derek's just upset cause every X-mas eve when he leaves some of his muffins out with a glass of milk, he awakes to find the milk has been drunk and the pantry raided, but the muffins are still untouched. Sorry Derek, I mean scones, not muffins. ;D ;D [smiley=laugh.gif] [smiley=laugh.gif]
But the way Derek, could you contact the powers that be and ask them to kill off these little santas that raided the site. It's 3 hours till Boxing Day and 'Bahh Humbug'! [smiley=brood.gif]

;D ;D ;D

Got a couple of good books and the obligatory toiletries and shirts & shorts. Best Christmas present by far came in mid-October in the form of a brand new baby boy. After a rocky pre-delivery road, he now goes from strength to strength. He already has a seat reserved in the boat for times to come. Being his first Christmas, he scored big time; and we've only hit one set of doting Grandparents so far, with the secondary raid sometime Monday. Anyway, I've got the boat and the fishing gear already; the BOY is the best present I've ever received. I've already put an order in for a Sister for him, but I doubt that would be under next year's Christmas Tree.


26-12-2004, 05:09 PM
Santa was good to me,
A watch and some new decals for the rig. She finally gets her name on her and a fishing rod/line decal as well
The ausfish stickers go on tomorrow as well

26-12-2004, 06:05 PM

T'was the night before Christmas,
Old Santa was pissed.
He cussed out the elves, and
threw down his list.

Miserable little brats,
Ungrateful little jerks.
I have good mind to
scrap the whole works.

I've busted my arse
for damn near a year.
Instead of "Thanks Santa",
Just what do I hear?

The old lady bitches
'cause I work late at night.
The elves want more money,
The reindeer all fight.

Rudolph got drunk and
he goosed all the maids.
Donner is pregnant, and
Vixen has AIDS.

And just when I thought
that things would get better,
those arseholes from IR
they sent me a letter.

They say I owe taxes -
if that ain't damn funny.
Who the hell ever sent
Santa Claus any money.

And all the kids these days,
they are simply the pits.
They want the impossible...
Those mean little shits.

I spent a whole year
making wagons and sleds
Assembling dolls,
their arms, legs and heads.

Made a ton of yo yo's ...
No requests for them.
Just computers and robots,
Hey, I'm not IBM!

If you think that that's bad,
then just picture this.
Try holding those brats
with their pants full of piss.

They pull on my nose,
they grab at my beard.
And if I don't smile,
parents think I'm weird.

Flying through the air
and dodging the trees.
Falling down chimneys,
and skinning my knees.

I'm quitting this job.
There's just no enjoyment.
I'll sit on my fat arse
and draw unemployment.

There's no Christmas this year,
now you know the reason.
I found me a bimbo,
I'm off SOUTH for this season!

dec 26th....WARNING:

consumption of alcohol may cause you to roll over in the morning
and see something really scary ...????

26-12-2004, 07:42 PM
Got a Garmin GPS 60cs.
Now all i need is some Ausfisher out their to sell me their other unlock code for Australian version Garmin Mapsource City Navigator, you are allowed to legally install it on two GPS's and most people only have 1 so I am happy to pay half the going rate, and I am also looking for the Bluechart but I am not sure if that can be installed on two or not.
If anyone can help PM me.
(Or if anyone knows where you can buy them at a discount, I have never seen any on special and I have been looking for the last 2 months ever since I got the heads up from Santa as to what I was getting foe Xmas ;)

27-12-2004, 03:26 AM
My darling wife bought me a new tinnie!!!!!
A bit bigger than the old one, a Quinie 420 wide body.
Perfect for trolling around the headland or cruising over to bustad head or heading up the estuarys, or bottom bashing the trawler wreck!!
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Tony ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

27-12-2004, 06:27 AM
Santa was pretty good to me too.

I got a shimano TLD 15 with spectrum boat rod,
A new digital camera,
electric toothbruch,
Fish scale and measurer,
clothes etc
and some cash to buy fishing accesories.
But no tinny :(

Merry X-mas to everyone

28-12-2004, 12:43 PM
Thats 1 boss I don't ever want to work for

My boss rang up about 11.30 chrissy eve and asked how it was going, when told it was dead he suggested we should close about 2.00pm and go home.
He got no arguments from me ;D ;D

28-12-2004, 03:20 PM

The ausfish stickers go on tomorrow as well

Well the stickers went on and came up a treat, can't really see them in the profile pic, so i chucked one in here

28-12-2004, 05:06 PM
Hi guy's, no fishing stuff for me just yet, waiting for more money. Wife might be pregnant again, waiting on test results, so that could be the present for both of us this xmas. Last one this time hopefully, #4, but as the wife go's," WE"LL SEE" ::) CHEERS WOODY

28-12-2004, 05:45 PM
#4, maybe its time to get that woody ring barked?
;D ;) :)

28-12-2004, 05:50 PM
I got to look at my watch and see '12.01am 26th December', which is my absolute favourite time of my absolute favourite day of the entire year.



29-12-2004, 04:22 PM
Just remember only 362 days and it all happens again. ;D ;D

Time was once explained to me as being a percentage of your total experience. When you are 5 years old from Christmas to Christmas is one fifth of your total experience, a LONG time.

When you are 50 it is only one fiftieth of your total experience so it is a much shorter period of time and goes SO MUCH QUICKER!

30-12-2004, 05:11 PM
I got two rods, one for each of my Shimano 4000's.
A TLD 20,
300yds of 50lb Jigging Braid,
300yds of Platinum 50lb mono,
15-24kg Ugly Stick,
the usual aftershave, t-shirts and gimmicky crap,
Oh, almost forgot, a total of 8 litres of Bundy Rum.


31-12-2004, 06:42 PM
I got a few presents as per usual.

Also got a f**kin big hole in the bank account courtesy of my wife and her family. It's a big family and they just 'must' buy a nice present for every single one of them.

I'm sure my wife was in a 2 month long frenzy.

I held out until the 23rd - when I went shopping for 2 hours for her present and my mum/dad.

31-12-2004, 07:07 PM
well i started christmas off with a nice sleep in. until my sister came and woke me up. >:(

i got
a jar of black olives 250ml ;D
a block of cadbury dream chocolate 125g :-/
a can of deoderant (still not worked out the hidden message though) ???
some tackle
a filleting set with 3 knives
a 1kg bag of christmas mix lollies
a pocket plier/knife thing.

only 24 hrs an 57 minutes until the elves and things go :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X :-X
