Post by jeffish » Sun Mar 31, 2019 1:26 pm

gday All,
Saw this Buzzing around the harbour this morning. Not sure if he needs a Skippers ticket or a Pilots Lic .
Only saw him get up about 30 mts or so , cool to watch as he did a few laps around Vesty's

Wild machine, lol
If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

Ground effect vehicles, been around a while but never understood why they didn't take off (no pun intended)

James the owner intends to bring it out for the beer can regatta. If you want to check it out. It is a hovercraft with wings that can fly at over 100km/h.
how many is enough lures, rods and reels. Is there a magic number, considering you usually only catch 1 fish on a single lure on the one rod and reel your casting with.
