Update - 30 Jan 2014

Been a while since I posted some info up here so thought i better get organised and get some info onto my site.

I can now offer any of my leaders with a snap clip.  My stock lines will be the 45 and 55 lb mono leaders with clip but any of the leaders can be fitted with clips on demand.  Im fitting 80 lb Shogun coast lock snap clips to my leaders.  These clips are light enough to allow even the lightest of lures both hard bodies and rubbers to swim correctly, however they are tough enough to take the treatment that a big barra will hand out.

Helifishing

Dad recently visited and myself and Jordan and Kyle took him for a days Helifishing with Mark and Ryan - the experience was amazing, we got to see some great country and everyone caught some great fish along the way.
Thanks to Mark and Ryan for an awesome day out - heres some pics.


Jigging Leaders

Jason Stammer contacted me and had us manufacture some special 80 lb x 12 metre leaders for him to use for jigging.  the leaders worked really well as evidenced by the great pics that Jason sent in - Jason writes -

"I have included a photo of a sounder reading which shows the typical ground we were fishing on. As you can see the reef rises and falls 10 metres, hence this is why I wanted the extra length of 12 metres on the mono leader  to keep the braid off the reef.

 
The guys I fished with were using 6 metre leaders and I am sure they will source extra long ones from you when we go back same time next year.

20 Lb leaders slay the Toga

Headed out to trial the new 20 lb leaders at Cooroboree today - bit windy on the salt water so a quick change of plans and into the fresh I went.  Plenty of sign of fish around with tarpon busting up everywhere.
Fished with 20 lb mono leaders today and nothing else.  Following some inside info from Colin from Reidys lures the techniques was simple - cast lures into the stems of the lillies and hang on - first to hit the deck was a nice fat 60 odd cm barra followed by plenty of saratoga - heaps of weed but thats the nature of the beast - at times I had to drag the fish out and got the salad as well as the fish but the 20 lb leaders worked a treat.

New Products on the way

Well its been a while - been at the PMs pleasure - not in Goal but away doing my job - was a good experience and allowed me to do some serious R&D on the leaders.
Am happy to be able to offer 8 & 10 lb flouro carbon leaders for chasing those elusive bream. Manufactured using 30 lb dacron and a new manufacturing process that allows me to insert fine leader into the dacron these should be a big hit.  Will get around to geting them up on the sales page but for now feel free to email me at shandoevy@hotmail.

Bluwater Leader Feedback

Hi Shane
 
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to compliment you on your wind on leaders. I have been using your 110lb leaders in Dampier while targetting marlin and sailfish. They have never let me down and I find that using a wind on makes it much easier to control and tag fish at the boat. I recently landed 3 marlin and a wahoo on the one leader all in the same day and the join looked like it was still brand new. They are an excellent product.
 
Thanks

Back Onto the Score Board

After a long delay due to work commitments I was keen to get out for a fish yesterday and it was agreat day out.

Up early to find my car doors open as I had left them unlocked and some little pr..k had been through my car - nothing of any value missing but I looked around and a bunch of other car doors in my street were open so must be a few little pr..ks getting around - might have to put some trebles into the dark corners of the ashtray amongst the coins and tie them so when they pull their hands out - grrrrr - anyway no damage done and nothing misisng - still peevs me but.

Support AFANT and protect the NT fishery from the Green Groups

Well it was too good to be true - the Federal Minister released details of proposed marine reserves abck in August and AFANT at that stage indicated that they thought it was only a matter of time before the green groups made noises about increases to the marine reserves - well low and behold the green groups ahve commenced their campaign on the federal minister so its time to show your support for AFANT and tell the minister that you dont see the need for fuerther reserves - every study into the NT fishery has shown it is the most sustainable in Australia but now green groups with no scientific proof but heaps of finance and the backing of the greenies are now calling for further restrictions on the NT way of life - support AFANT and tell the minister and anyone who will listen that expansions of the proposed marine reserves and restrictions on the NT way of life are not required.
