    You are terrible influence so looking forward to another session. How's Sun night?? As mentioned, Ben's shouting (in swahili).

    Ben, I know where you can stick those industrial size ear plugs .

    Roo - who are these 'talented' ausfishers you speak of;D I need some mojo magic too.
    I don't quite know now Black_Sheep, I thought that was your department. See if you can russell up a Guru. Ben is clearly a catalyst for debauchery so thats part of the equation, just need the fish whisperers to put us onto the mark and we'll be set.
    I can see this turning out like some of my Boardriders club trips.......not much Surfing gets done but plenty of fun none the less.

    Cheers Roo.

    Re: Can't Help Myself

    Sounds like it's going to be fun, 2 weeks to go. Should we phone the pub and warn them you guys are coming?? On second thoughts, better not, they might close down for the weekend?
    I have a slight reel issue I need to get sorted. On Monday night we loaded up the reel (a pflueger supreme), from the combo I bought a few weeks ago. Trouble is the most drag we could get out of it was 2.2kg. Not quite enough for barra We tested the old echelon and go 3.5kg out of it. So we are going back on saturday to put the spool in some of the other supremes they had there, to see if they are any better. I may have to use the echelon again for the trip , unless I can convince Roo to buy me a zillion
    Cheers Kim.

    Re: Can't Help Myself

    Great read this thread, very funny, you crew sound like you have a ball. Much better to read than some of the recent heavy duty tense threads etc. and bla bla bla.
    Hope you all get some barra among all the drinks, donuts and marshmallows LOL!
    Go for it, I need to get to Monduran some time, only worked Awoonga so far.

    Kim, I will make sure I pack a spare baitcastor or 2 just in case you don't have success. I have plenty of spares so it's not a problem.

    That is the plan Barraboy7. hopefully the drinks, donuts and marshmallows don't make me too fat, happy and lazy to go fishing, I've already got a winter coat on the midrift.

    Hopefully we'll have a replacement reel sorted out on the weekend, if not a refund. 2.2kgs is not what you'd call flash huh. Have been doing some searching for suitable alternatives and found a nice new JDM daiwa.

    Looks like a mildly detuned Zillion. certainly a better bet than the Supreme has turned out.

    Cheers Roo.

    There is a very good reason why Navi carries spare baitcasters?.......his brother keeps dropping them/throwing them in the drink I thought he was a member of the Midget Mafia when he first pulled out his brief case.....and when he opened it.....full of low profiles, barrels, assorted spare parts, tools.....a mobile "reel garage"

    Re: Can't Help Myself

    Roo, The TD advantage 153HSTA super tuned is a perfect reel, I have 2, Both Foxie and I rate them higher than the Zillion......cost Vs performance. I reckon they actually cast smoother too. about $239.

    They do look good and the review on tackle tour is quite glowing but the wider/larger size doesn't fit well with Kims delicate, never done a hard days work in the trenches of blood sweat and tears, hands quite as well as the 100 size reels do. I wish i'd had a chance to check out a few reviews before getting the Supreme, the tackle tour guys found the same problem we have with very poor max drag performance

    That's what I get for an impulse buy.

    Ooooh Roo that will cost you bacon and Eggs for sure!!!!

    Mabey the chronarch 100 with a drag upgrade?? I have been toying with the idea myself. Light smooth reel. My old one (now residing somewhere in the depths of Monduran) used to land some pretty good barra, without drag upgrade...just a thought.

    Re: Can't Help Myself

    Kim,

    I'll probably take my certate custom hd3500 so will make sure Roo doesn't see it.

    Most of my spare reels are barrell shaped but I should have a Chronarch CH100 spare for back up use - that should be small enough to palm. I also have a spare echelon that could be spooled up with 30lb braid.

    Roo - we will hit up Steve as a guide for the day. He's the man!! If not, we'll do what we always do and wing it. I'm sure if the weather gods are kind, we'll find a few hungry fish. 2 weeks and counting.
