    Re: bottom bouncing the shelf

    Mick - it is a nice part of the world. I had to spend 3 months in Zeehan few years ago while starting up some underground equipment and had a ball on the weekends but it was too cold and too wet for a Qld boy.

    Good to see a bit of debate in here opening a few minds. Fishing is a lot of different things to people. For me - I love chasing summer fish and the whole visual aspect of fast fish hitting surface lures. I cant really get excited about pulling bottom vermin from 30,50,80 or 100m let alone what you guys do but that is just me and lots of others love the bottom bashing


    Keep posting some of them pictures though - show us some of the lead

    Re: bottom bouncing the shelf

    $14K for a reel? was it built by the pope and the handle covered in DODO neck skin? LOL. I was under the impression they were around 1-2k, that is sort of my price range and it would only be used once or twice a year. Other than that I'm too busy or weather is too tough for me.
    Humility is not a weather condition.

    That real was the top of the range...1000lb pulling power....You can pick them up starting from around 800 bucks...to 1500

    probable wont cut it after some of the comments, takes a bit more than that to settle the hackles on the back of a tasmanian's neck (after all we have two bloody heads and 2 necks to settle the hackles on). Naggs, if you ever come to tassie I will take U for a fish for your arther river browns or hobart bream BUT I will also insist you fish the shelf, do a launch and retrieve of a 6m plus trailer boat off the west coast etc. Tassie is a great place to live, leave keys in cars at boat ramps for over nighters, dont lock houses or sheds, kids can kick the footy on the street, live 40km from the cleanest air in the industrised world (they measure cow farts from 5km). Dont be negitive about tassie or our regs without first experincing our great state.

    Blaze,

    Key's in the Car's, Houses & Shed's not locked?

    I'm on my way for an extended stay then, may be bringing a Removalist's Truck, a bloody big one

    Us NSWelshmen will sought it all out for ya

    Mick,

    Hope I'm not invited on the Big Shelf trip, I don't think the Ticka could stand the thrill of the roller coaster ride, definitely know the gut couldn't

    Cheers

    Re: bottom bouncing the shelf

    Well I'd pretty much bought out of this debate causeI'm not interested in telling anyone how they should fish, and even less interested in having someone else tell me this. I go fishing to get away from this stuff.

    All the same, some contributors here think that all worlds are equal. Well, they're not. Check these websites for an indication of the difference between snelly's world ( west coast Tas), mine (lower SE coat Tas) and Southern - mid qld.

    http://www.stormsurfing.com/cgi/display.cgi?a=melbourne

    And remember, while the water temp in Qld is 22 degrees, it's 12 at the moment down here. You can fall overboard and survive for a while; we can't.

    These are the things that make comparisons between your style of fishing and mine very difficult. That's the last word on this from me, tight lines to all.

    Cheers,
    Jigs

    The trouble is ... I'm not actualy negative about what you have , do etc etc ..... I just wanna see it remain for many years to come .... There are not too many places like this in Aust ..... specially one where you can tow your boat to & be fishing with 36 hours ... from sydney for pristine or reasonably so water ....... Currently I have to tow my boat 2500 kms to fish reasonable water (Hinchinbrook) ... Add to that another 1000kms for Weipa ... & add the potential to destroy your tailer ...... ... Then I'm looking a the top end or Kimberleys ... & all the logistical nightmares that go with it. .... Nagg

    Re: bottom bouncing the shelf

    Great info jigs....but i still dont think certain Ausfish members fully comprehend conditions down here...ah..we will just compare you with Lord Howe..ect...ect...ect....Well i cant compare ...cause i have never been to those places....SO I WOULD NOT COMPARE...until i have been there.....

    Not negative my Ar$e....what would you call it then Nagg...

    And my last question to you Naggs...what makes you an expert on Tasmanian Fisheries....and weather conditions....you seem to jump the gun and compare us very quickly to others parts of Aus without ever being here..

    I am pretty sure that those in charge of our fisheries .....understand...and have a lot more knowledge of how to run a sucessful Rec...and Commercial ...substainable fisheries for future generations.....Not some outsider who has never been....or seen the place...and then making such strong comments..

    Re: bottom bouncing the shelf

    hi Snelly1971,

    Just wondering if you have to drop anchor at those depths and if so what type of setup do you use?

    Thanks
