    Re: Moreton bay reefs

    I like Ausfish. If I didn't like it I'd probably not visit or post.

    But then I do have a positive demeanour!

    Yeah ots it's a shame tropic.
    U use to be able to ask a question, get an answer back real quick, and have a joke or 2.

    Now u look at it and threads are few and far between. Fishing report very rare.

    Not worth asking advice anymore , just smart answers.

    Real shame. It was the best site around

    Re: Moreton bay reefs

    Greg, you asked a question and got numerous answers..

    Nothing in my posts were intended to be smart or to have a dig and I was actually trying to help you understand a situation you were going to put yourself in..

    When you quoted your "right to sound an area" I thought I would try and explain why some people might get upset by this if they are there fishing there at said time and are floating back to the structure you want to sound that was all!

    This site is still good, people have just become to critical of people's opinions if they don't like what someone else thinks or says.....it is a public forum after all!

    Thicker skin is all that is required and take away or perceive it whichever way you choose but no need to get upset or offended.

    No worries Watto

    As i said , i have been on this site since 2005 and have met lots of people.

    Mate iam an extremely considerate fisherman.

    I just seem to see more smart answers on here when questions are asked, aout fishing, boating, motors.

    U shouldnt need a thicker skin, just get the right answers in the first place.

    I jut dont have time for smart arses.


    Now to try and find some fish

    Cheers

    Re: Moreton bay reefs

    All good Greg, unfortunately there will always be smart arses you just have to disregard it and move on!

    With the bay, think outside the square, spend lots of time reading articles from bush and beach, fishing monthly on the type of fish/area you want to target and apply those techniques and you will come up trumps!

    If you are going to fish any of the known spots you will have to work hard unfortunately or fish them when most others won't or can't, when people are sleeping, rough weather etc!

    Plenty of fish out there mate, start in the bay until you build your confidence levels then venture offshore.

    Good luck..

    Re: Moreton bay reefs

    Interesting. I have noticed very little banter anymore even in the Boating Chat. What happened and where has everyone gone?

    Re: Moreton bay reefs

    Curious question about why there aren't as many posts hey? Greg I've been around for eons, and I do remember many heated threads that the mods had to get in and remove sections, modify comments and ban people. I was in the middle of a few, walked into a few hornets nests which I think came partly as a result of my inexperience which I have never been too proud to show. Good examples are not knowing enough about packing trailer bearings, taking giant herring home to find out they were crap on the table, and didn't Finga try slay me for helping my brother take a smaller tinny out on a less than perfect day. But we are still here, become much wiser over the years, different opinions and wise arse comments will always be available on tap. What has changed is fishing. Anyone bagged out at Wello lately? As an example, who would have believed that spot would be as barren as it is these days? We used to post unashamedly of our success, and as a result hoards moved in directly as a result of information posted on here. I was one! So we have all learned to be a lot more discreet, the fish are way less abundant, and a quick use of the search bar will show there are very few topics that have not been covered before on this site. Many are still around, just not as often, and my bragging days are few and far between, good trips don't happen anywhere near as often.

    Good luck getting away from bread and butter species, I bought the Yalta 555hc to be able to do that, but be prepared for much higher fuel costs and getting a crack at the big boys is so hard to get right, the weather and conditions test your patience, don't get frustrated if the predictions turn to mush, save the fuel for good days and do more homework.

    Cheers!

    Re: Moreton bay reefs

    I wonder too if we are all just busy. I know that I and a lot of my mates don't get out as much so less to talk about with boats, trailers, tackle, fish etc.

    That too. I wonder if we took a pol of how many of us get the boat out as often as we did 5/10 years ago and are we much busier these days? Do we have as much disposable income to fuel the boat and buy stuff? I'm not making half as many jigheads as I used to, I am sure the late Dayoo would be saying the same. R.I.P ol' mate!
