    Defence produced a 63cm hatchery spring for me yesterday .... Minimum size is 62 not 65cm as I thought it was, so he got released

    Lost 200ft of cable and a ball when the prop found the wire

    "Lost 200ft of cable and a ball when the prop found the wire"

    check your prop seal just in case it got wrapped in
    also so you don't do it again keep them turns wide

    not fun losing gear
    feel for yeah bro

    i ran up the cliff at the waterfall a few weeks back and lost the bottom end, cannon ball, custom long release clip

    now down to my last few balls have to phone go-green mr ed

    well nada for me today done a few turns at tunstall but quite a few boats where all ready working there and did not see any nets out

    Was being pushed by wind, doing 2.8mph. I knew it was about to happen 5 seconds before it actually did. Prop seal is all good, one blade caught the wire, pulled it in to the root of the blade and ker-snap

    Shoulda had the riggers extended fully
    Will look into a Gaurd now

    All good that's why I melt my own balls

    Happened to me too a few weeks back. A piece of driftwood hit the wire and pushed it into the prop, lost 200 feet of wire, a ball, 2 release clips and a dummy flasher. Sucks man.

  9. Where is the Hump?

    Can anyone send me a google map location of where the hump is? I got one buddy telling me its just south of Bowen close to the shore and my other buddy is telling me its 5 miles south.

    Going to head out tomorrow

    Thanks in advance!

    Friend of mine was out for the day up around Hutt and a few other locals in Howe sound. Wasn't much for bait apparently but went 1 for 1 and landed a nice 15lb fish. Looking forward to the next few months ..... Hump/thrasher.
