We're heading up north with the van and kids in June and i'm wondering how heavy my fishing arsenal needs to be.Is there a couple of rod/reel combo's that suit most situations?Terribly open ended question i know due to the hundreds of variables ,but if something works for you i'd love to hear about it.

Ok forget the porta boat, the crocs up here will eat it.

All you need for Barra is a good quality bait caster rod and reel, a Gold Bomber lure, and don't forget No wobble No gobble.

Cheers Steve

For fishing of the beach i use 20 to30 pound line and 30 pound on one rod and 50 pound on the other from a boat with 1metre of wire trace over reef areas.The Penn GT330 is a great overhead real you can buy this as a combo very cheep but they are very good and will serve you well for years. 330 means 300 yards of 30 pound line. I use eggbeater reels off the beach with a two piece rod for ease of packing combo"s available also decide what line size you want to use then buy the rod.Don"t give the kids a big rod with heavy line or you won"t have it for long my 9 year old uses 10 pound line. BCF is a good place to start ask the staff , good luck.

Thanks for the reply,very informative.Most of my gear is set up for lighter fish..bream,whiting,trout,yellowbelly etc so i'm hoping i will need the heavier gear for a decent fish!
