Well this is a short rant about some low life scum that can't help but thieve. So yesterday I went out for a solo fish for the first time ever in a powered vessel. Still fish-less as far as the eating kind, but none the less great day and totally stoked. I learnt so much more about the bay fishing by myself, then i ever would have worrying about mates/missus snags or tying knots etc. Managed to launch and retrieve the boat by myself and quickly I might add.
All this sadly came to an
I work a life where i spend more time planning and dreaming of being on the water compared to actually being on it. I'm sure this is extremely common complaint. and the extra doe we earn being busy does mean we can waste it on more/ bigger toys.
For me, fishing is an adult passion. This doesn't mean that I fish naked or anything, I mean that I only learnt and got addicted to fishing, later in life as an adult. everything I know is because of google, fishing magazines and The Fishing
Recently I was talking to a client who had an old GME M400 and found that his AMSA registration expiry label date was a year ahead of the EPIRB expiry date. How AMSA go that one wrong, he had no idea why that had happened, but for safety sake and operational reliability, he decided it replace it with a KTI Safety Alert EPIRB... why? because it had a battery expiry of October 2025 and he reasoned that by the time replacement was due, it would not be worth mucking around with battery replacement.
Just moved to Tweed Heads from central Victoria , Just chasing someone with experience around these waters maybe even a deck hand to help me out. Just want advise heading out the Tweed bar, hot spots offshore, bait to use, catching live baits, just after as much advice as possible before heading offshore just been fishing the river.
Thanks in advance
It's coming on to 5+ years since the change over of the old analogue to digital 406MHz EPIRBs were introduced into Australia, so there are two things to keep in mind.
One, the battery expiry date - is it current and if not dispose the EPIRB at Battery World and get a new one or get the battery replaced.
Two, check your registration sticker and get the information on AMSA's database updated - it's FREE. Register here
