  1. I must admit the post is quite accurate, I could see Tim sitting there with all this pets. Please stay safe, like I am.
  2. Sue can. The Mackerel you are chasing are only 12 inches long, just haul em up. And Diving in the cave, water temp 45F, no thanks
  3. i am in Perth, Western Australia. Not as bad on the west coast as the east coast, however we have had a coupe of inner city fires in the last two days.
  4. Tim, thanks for updating post. Things are great, however we now have a fire only 5Kms from us, we are looking to go to an "act and watch" sometime today. Other than that see you in 2021
  5. It's probably easier just to follow the link than make me type. (*added text from 9 news website)
  6. A good joke, followed by a stupid wisecrack, written by a septic tank. That should start something.... Stax
  7. You just can't go past the American muscle car era, they were by far the best looking cars in the world. The 71 Cuda, picture earlier is a stand out. Thanks Stax
  8. There was never a threat of force, where did that come from.
  9. Quote...."Ok, nobody had their guns taken, they were just forced to surrender them or go to jail." Also not true. You could surrender your guns via the "amnesty" that followed the Port Arthur massacre, or if it was legally held with a valid license then you could keep it. Simple plain easy to understand fact. There are still a few of these no longer legal assault rifles and handguns in the general public, however the number "before" the amnesty was already very low and most, about 80% of those were handed in and bought from the owners at a very fair buyback price, and in a lot of cases they got more for their guns than they paid for them. It is now illegal to import or buy from any source an assault (semi auto, or fully auto) rifle or handgun, and to further this it is now also illegal to use these at any Gun range. (Forces, Security and Police exempt) So if you own one and are not in the armed forces or police force, you "legally" can't use it at all. So, still to this day, nobody has had their guns "taken" from them. PS, not everything in Australia is trying to kill you. (now I am talking animals) Stax
  10. Nobody, that's right, NOBODY had their guns"TAKEN' from them. NOT ONE. Fact.
  11. They didn't take our guns away, just stop with the incorrect facts. Find out the facts before you post. Stax.
  12. Deb This is Derf's hat that you presented to me on our last trip to NJ, now being used by my granddaughter, Kiritiana. I am sure that Tim, John and Carole will also recognise it. We were due to return this year, however my family from the UK is coming to us so we will be looking now at next year. Carol, Tim, I hope the house is now done and finished, but knowing Tim as the perfectionist he is, I am sure it is still on-going. Deb, please let me know how things are going, I would love to hear from you. John, just keep up the good work and look after your new "better half" Love from Christine and Stax, thinking of you often.
  13. Summer up at Dirk Hartog is January through to December. The slightly cooler months are May-September. Stax
  14. Summer months see the most Pelagic fish in the area, including all manner of Travelly, but be warned it is very hot during the summer months with expected temps to be in the 50C mark. Rmember there is little or no shade so you are in the direct sun all the time and it can be sapping. This place fishes well all year round, and I have fished there during every calendar month. It still get hot even in the "depths" of winter. Still gets well into the high 30-40C mark. And is that a Bonefish in your hands? Caught right there in that area. See attachment. Stax
  15. Sorry for the delay Co-ordinates are as follows For fishing 25-46'48.64S 112-58'12.03E Beach 25-52'14.03S 113-06'46.23E Dirk Hartog is a 10-12 hour drive from my place in Perth. Then a $600 barge ride (per car) to take you to the island The island is about 70 miles long 15-20 miles wide with a population of 20. There is a homestead (ranch) (http://www.dirkhartogisland.com/eco-lodge/) fancy and great place. Camping is basically free. If you come I will take you. And yes the fishing is as good as it gets. Look up my post from 14 years ago...
