Update - 30 Jan 2014

Posted on January 30, 2014 at 4:56 AM Comments comments (14067)
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.  Simply message me to arrange to have the clips fitted to any of my leaders you wish to order.  They save you the hassle of tying knots and allow you to quickly change lures without cutting the leader back - obviously I recommend you keep an eye on the leader and re tie it should the leader become frayed when you do snag that good fish.  The clips are tied using a perfection loop to allow your lures to swim free and work to their hearts content.

I also have bumper stickers in stock now so I am supplying all orders of 10 leaders with a free bumper sticker till i decide to start to charge for them so jump on board and get your leaders now for the upcoming barra season - with all this rain around in the Top End and a cyclone coming ashore in QLD it is shaping up to be a bumper year all round.

Don't forget to email me your fishing pics to [email protected] with a short story on your capture - Ill post it up here and on my FB page and will give you a discount on your next order.

Jigging Leaders

Posted on June 19, 2013 at 6:24 PM Comments comments (833)
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. So let me know if you change your contact details for any reason as we will want quite a few made up.
I will send some other emails with photos of what we landed, happy for you to use them and to write up a testimony if this helps you with your business.
We landed some good fish on your leaders, but take special note of the shark. Even more impressive was the fact that the rod snapped half way through the fight but your leader didn’t.
Thanks for the feedback Jason

20 Lb leaders slay the Toga

Posted on May 29, 2013 at 7:16 AM Comments comments (1266)
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.  I am super confident that they will work a treat on flathead.  I fished all day with 3 inch Reidys rubbers and at times it was a fish a cast action.  Tally for the day was 2 barra ( a third better fish bought to the side of the boat but chucked the single hook - dont think he knew he was hooked!!) and about a dozen or so saratoga - great day out.
Tomorrows challenge is to snag  fish on an 8 lb bream leader.

New Products on the way

Posted on May 28, 2013 at 6:51 AM Comments comments (1673)
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 [email protected] and I will do you a good deal in return for some pics of trophy bream and flathead.
- will be heading out to test them on barra, tarpon and saratoga int he next few days so hope to post some pics up for you.
In other exciting news a Shane Doevy Wind on landed the second biggest barra at 112cm at the Barra Classic recently. Veteran angling legend Steve Compain snagged an awesome barra and was ahead of the curve right up until the end of the comp when he was pipped by 2 cm - still a bloody awesome fish - Steve told me the fish hit the lure close the boat and buried him in the snag and they netted it while the line and leader were wrapped around the snag - great work. Steve was using a 60 lb fluoro carbon leader specially made for him for the competition.  Dont forget I can manufacture leaders of any length and strength to suit your needs
Keep an eye on this space - new labels on the way and a re release of the toughest leaders in the country!!

Bluwater Leader Feedback

Posted on July 26, 2012 at 8:33 AM Comments comments (3093)
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.

Back Onto the Score Board

Posted on December 11, 2011 at 1:36 AM Comments comments (23657)
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.

Destination for the day was Leeders Creek to see if the rumours of metre barra being hauled in were true.  The road to Leeders was awesome and dropped a paper with Chris and launched - word was that they had seen metre barra caught this week on the neaps!! Did a troll run round the outer edge of the bend but didnt turn a scale so I had a quick drop out the front at the top of the tide but didnt bother the scorers. Head over and had a look in a SWA creek and snagged seven crabs - two good bucks and some smaller ones - good enough to take down south this week - didnt wanna get land locked so headed out and it was glasss so making hay while the sun shone i headed around Hotham to catch the bottom of the tide and try for a jewie as I havent caught one for ages - ended up with a heap of smaller jewies and one nice goldy.  The 80 lb wind ons peformed awesomely. The tide turned and things went quiet so I heded back around and fished a couple of Hotham creeks.  Had some fun with some small trevally on a bommie using rubbers attached with 45 lb wind on leaders.  Catching live was a bit difficult and of course the one livie i did get got engulfed straight away by a 60 ish barra once the incoming tide allowed me to get into the creek. Threw a big blue squidgy out and hooked and landed an 80cm silver beauty after a short fight - the 45lb leader worked a treat and allowed me to put plenty of pressure on in tight country..  Also snagged a small blue salmon as well - headed home across the bay through some chop - got wet but who cares when you have a feed of fish on board.

Great day out after such a long time out of the game -

Off to have a look at the Daly tomorrow to see how its going down there.  Hopefully put the stretch on some of the 45 and 55 lb leaders.

Support AFANT and protect the NT fishery from the Green Groups

Posted on October 18, 2011 at 3:36 AM Comments comments (24163)
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.
