Fatties at Bayview

So after the sale of my boat this week I have a sense of freedom to back to my grass roots of wading the flats with lures on light lines. I got out yesterday afternoon and was quickly reminded that I love this type of fishing. Light, easy and super fun. I fished Bayview for…

Boat Sold

This was a week of mixed feelings. I have sold my boat because we are going to knock our house down and rebuild. It makes sense to sell it while we need the money and I don’t have much time to get a boat on the water. I’m really happy it went to a really…

The next generation.

The next generation. 8yrs old and the first time I’ve put a long rod in his hands. I went with the 555 (10’6″) rod, 55b reel 10lb mono. Perfect setup for him, long enough but light enough to handle. 12 fish later (10 dart, 1 whiting, 1 Flathead) and he is hooked on beach fishing.…

Good Friday Whiting

Beautiful way to spend Good Friday. Fished the Alvey 55B on the Alvey 555 rod. I really love this set-up with light line and weight. Eight whiting on beach worms. The fish were right at my feet. Not much swell around Sydney right now. A fantastic morning to be on the beach. 🎣👍😁

WaterScreen Nano fuel filter set-up

I recently decided to put a fuel filter on the boat to protect the motor from fuel contaminated with water. The choice of filter was easy; the WaterScreen nano fuel filter from Whitworths. The process was pretty simple, however, I had to look around a bit to work out how the inlet and outlet system…

Tinny Pimp – finished & first water test

Today my tinny had its first water test. After drilling some decent size holes in it for the livewell and bilge I was slightly apprehensive. DRY! absolutely no water in the bilge. It sits great on the water and rides better than I expected. Checkout the video and photos here Cheers Matt

Tinny Pimp Electrics

Having finished installing all the Tinny Pimp electrics myself I have to say I found this whole process one of the most satisfying jobs of the Tinny Pimp and the new skills are really great to have. Being an absolute novice at electrics I really can’t comment too much on how to solder other than to say I…
