Going over to Fraser Island on Monday 15th until Saturday 20th.
Going to have a crack at slidebaiting.
Info here >> http://www.bustedfishing.com/uploads...of_sliding.pdf

Also going to be trying out something new.
It is a bait release system assembled on a pulley rig.
Not enough time to explain now I have to get everything ready.

I am going to be using spinning reels.
Fin-Nor offshore 9500 for slide baiting & Fin-Nor Lethal 100 for catching tailor + other species.
Both spooled with SAS 80 pound braid (certified tested breaking point at 112 pounds).
The 9500 has 50 metres of 80 pound shock leader on top.
Using a 2 piece Daiwa rod rated to cast up to 10 ounces (283.5 grams).
Heaviest sinker I will be casting is 200 grams.
Down to 150 grams for the smaller ones I will be using (depending on conditions).

Also have a new device to use with only spinning reel rods to enable much further casting out without suffering a sore index finger.
The device allows you to cast all day without ever having to touch the line during the casting motion.

Quote - "For accuracy and distance the most important element of your cast is holding down the line until the power stroke is complete. Its not easy and can be very painful without some mechanical device.

The Cannon is mounted under the rod in line with the rings and as near to directly over the spool.
Unfortunately there is a wide variety of reels and reel fittings and many vary as to how they are fitted.
Attach the Cannon onto the rod with insulating tape until you are happy with its position.

Always check that your clutch is tight before casting in areas where big fish are regularly caught winding your leader around the Cannon three times will allow you to cast with a light clutch fitting."



Tried it on the beach yesterday & it works brilliantly.
Much further distance achieved than ever before.
Also learned a few new casting techniques.
Can't wait !!

Didn't end up getting to Fraser Island  Sad
My mates Colorado couldn't get through the soft sand towing his Jayco poptop van near the barge landing area at Inskip Point.
A couple of years ago he took his troopy & the van to Fraser.
Only found out later after we got off the island that it only had 2 wheel drive.
I also had some issues getting through the soft sand to the barge landing towing a trailer.
We ended up staying at Inskip Point instead as the possible recovery costs on Fraser Island would not be good if something were to go wrong (getting stuck in soft sand).
A future trip with the troopy is in the planning.
The troopy has since been turboed & had had a few other mods done.

Even found a crab pot in the camp area no one would claim.
Had to to a few minor repairs to it but it's still good to use.
I even got a piece of carpet for $10 from the local recycling centre for the caravan annexe.

Fishing at the time was not the best.
