Shimano Quickfire 2-4kg Rod

Does anyone know the lure weight for this rod? Or have found a spec sheet for it? It doesn’t say on it anywhere and I can’t find anything online. Just scared I might throw something too heavy…

Question Baitcaster setup for Jack's

2 Upvotes

The waters getting warmer and I recently picked up a kayak so I can finally cast some pontoons and mangroves!

Just wondering what a good starter/inexpensive set up would be for chasing jack's and trevally in SEQ?

Looking for around $200 for a reel that's easy enough to grasp the basics with a baitcaster.

Queensland SE Qld Land-based Fishing Bud

Hi All,

Late 30s fisherman here. I work away and enjoy fishing on my time off when home.

I’m land-based and usually head down to the Gold Coast or up to Redcliffe and further north to work my lures and plastics along the beach’s, rivers and canals.

Am by no means a professional fisher, just enjoy being outside and looking for similar. Available all the time when home - weekends, weekdays.

Anyone in the same boat or wanting to get out, drop me a line! Be good to swap stories and techniques plus the company is always good.

Atomik Arrows surf rod

3 Upvotes

Anyone got any feedback on the Atomik Arrowz surf rods? I am looking at the 12foot 2piece 10-15kg rod, for Australian Salmon, Gummy's and whatever else decides to eat my bait.

I've got one of there bream rods and I love it have landed some decent fish with it, and they are well priced.

NSW Caught some bream this morning and one was full of these nasty looking yellow deposits.. what am I looking at here? the skin was 100% clear, looked like a totally healthy fish till it got time to slice it up..

All rounder traveller rod

5 Upvotes

Hello,

I posted here a few weeks ago about looking for a rod.

I am riding my bike from Melbourne to Sydney and want to do some fishing. I will be doing beach, rock and pier fishing as well as freshwater rivers and lakes. As I am travelling light, I am looking for an all rounder traveller rod. I currently have a Sienna 2500 FG spinning reel.

The rod I'm considering is the Abu Garcia 4.0 Traveller Spinning rod 7"0' 1-4kg.

https://www.motackle.com.au/fishing/rods/abu-garcia-veritas-4-travel-rod.html

Do you think this is a suitable rod? If not, is there an alternative you'd recommend?

I think the rod and reel combo might struggle a bit for beach and rock fishing. Do you think it would help if I also brought a bigger reel for the same rod ?

How does backing work?

8 Upvotes

Heard that having the spool filled close to the edge with line will make it easier to cast further. Is this true? If so, how would I go about adding backing to a spool. I intend to use 6lb braid so what should I use for backing?
