Cut off trolling

 To the pelican in the red sided plate ally boat heading into ocean reef this afternoon at 4pm, I hope the 300mtrs of braid and new richter lure you stripped off was well wound around your prop.

All the gestures and jumping up and down as you blindly changed to drive behind us wasn't a special tic toc dance. Anyone could clearly see we had three lines out the back ! 
 

You are a fool, please take more care.

Had a bloke taling me sitting right on my expensive Yozuri heading back through Dawesville Cut yesterday. He peeled off quickly when I chucked a BJs leadhead right next to it 5m from his bow

 I had a bloke cross our transom on Saturday trolling (or is it trawling?) what I can only assume was his anchor behind the boat. 

He was going too fast for it to be a scaling bag and was going too fast in the opposite direction so all I could do was watch

dive flag

Wed, 2022-06-15 19:29

 You can approuch a boat with a dive flag showing as long as it done at a slow speed and a good watch being done. Other than that i think there is a 50 metre exclusion zone around the dive boat.

I think it's all happened to all of us

and venting on here thinking that the

culprit is on here and looks on here

is very unlikely .. I've mentioned this

site to others and it would be 40% 

hit that there on here or browses

the site .. cheers pirate

Mon, 2022-06-13 13:23

 A trolling flag isn't a bad idea but a lot of the muppets out there probably wouldn't know what it is or just ignore it anyway. Safest bet is just to be ultra careful but I'll admit it is really annoying!

whats is worse

Wed, 2022-06-15 19:33

 whats worse are the morons that charge past you as your coming through the channle heading to the ramp. Arsehole don't give a flying F@#$%k about other boaters and if you chat them they just abuse you. Where are the people that have consideration, All dead probably from getting swamped and drowning.
