Here is one of mine.

OK let me try and explain why you should not use steel belted radial tyres on a trailer.
The natural (man made) camber of majority of roads in Australia
Is between 2-4%. Therefor the tyres are always leaning (however slightly)
favoring the near side or left of the road.
Steel as you know when it heats up gets more plyable (easy to bend).
Steel does not have a memory like other materials,so once bent
will stay bent (except spring steel)we are talking tyres.

Right you travel several hundred klms at lets say 80klms per hour.
The tyres heat up & the steel heats also,being on a camber the steel
slightly forces itself toward the right side of each tyre,being the
inside of the left wheel & the outside of the right wheel.
Are you with me so far?.


Doing this month after month Klm after klm you end up with a deformed
pattern in the steel,which creates distortion of the tyre.
Remember the steel does not have memory so stays distorted.
Now you may say "change the tyres around from side to side.NO.
This only exagerates the problem cause you take a tyre which the
steel has been forced to one side (ever so slightly) & put it on the
other side of the trailer (right to left) which means now you have
A tyre that has had the steel forced to the right & you are going
to force it the oppisite way.The wheel has been turned around.
This forces the steel back against itself & ends up in notts.

Hope you can follow what I am trying to say.

Dont use steel belted radials on trailers.

BAIT GATHERING AND CARE

1.Gathering soldier crabs is easy by using a dust pan and brush.

2.Freshwater shrimp will be caught readily at night using Velvet or Sunlight cake soap.

3.Keep your freshwater yabbies fed with grated carrot. It will not turn the water bad.

4.2lt Soft drink bottles can be modified to make very good mullet traps.

5.Bardi Grubs should be dropped into very hot milk for 3-5 seconds before freezing.They will retain most of their shape and consistency when defrosted.

On some continents soap is concidered to be a very good catfish bait. If you want to get a giant vundu catfish on the Zambesi river in Zimbabwe, soap is the way to go.

Yeh, you use it as bait in your traps, puk.
Makes a good bait too, it's not messy, you don't get as much unwanted bycatch like small fish, not gross to clean outa the trap, in fact you can just leave a cake in the little pocket when you put the traps away ready for next time.
Shrimp love it and you'll get the occasional yabbie too, but mostly shrimp (which are better bait anyway).
Clean alternative is dog bickies.

When fishing for king george whitting use frozen peas as burley also i put one pea on the hook along with the normal bait(pippi,mussel or squid) you will be surprized at how gorged with peas the whitting will be when caught.

may your lines stay tight & the fish on the bite!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When filling the petrol tank in your boat (for underfloor tanks) make sure you dont put the nozzle into the rod holders by mistake. When you are in a hurry and the tanks filler is next to the rod holder and they are the same colour, disaster can strike. (Can't it Ponsey!)
If your tank filler is black, put white rod holders through the side decks so it is a little more obvious.

Cheers!

Halllco Twistys make great small jigs for doing jiggy jiggy down pylons on jetties etc for Bream etc.

Remove the treble and hang a Gamakatsu G-Stinger from the top.

Best size 5 or 10 gm but I suppose you could use what you want.
