if your 50mm rod holders are too big in diameter for jig rods/softbait rods etc, buy a roll of snow foam for 10 bucks and cut a piece to size and pop it down the rod holder to reduce the diameter. if the rod holder doesn't have a cap, you can buy these really cheaply to keep the snow foam in place-no messy glue needed. this works a treat and stops a lot of rod movement whilst underway.

When using pillies for bait, I put a baby squid opened up and slipped over the pilly like a condom,(clean everything out of the head,)  tread the hook and line thru several times ending in half hitch around the tail, holds the pilly together for longer and also gives the fish a bit more of a smorgasboard to eat.

WHO NEEDS BALLOONS for livebaiting when you can use something more useful. Use a clip on swivel to attach not a balloon but your favourite ring pull can of drink. Pop the top, quench your thirst , but don't fully pull off the ring pull and attach it to your swivel. The can will float upside down with the air trapped inside and also rattle away in the water to attract kingies. I've had 5 kingfish using the same can!

keep your rigs in good order you dont get much from your bank so ask for money bags.
Great for storing rigs and even have a hole in them to let moisture out.
Just replace as needed at no cost

Make fishing floats you can steer!


http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k38/BulBob/2inPattern.jpg - BulletBobber Template
Material List:
  1. 1 pine or balsa board - 5” long, 1 1/2” wide and 1/4" thick. The wood grain must run the 5” length.
  2. Elmer’s glue
  3. Gorilla Glue
  4. Water resistant paint and/or sealer.
  5. Small diameter plastic tube (you can use one from a WD40 can)
  6. Round Tooth Picks
Tools:
  1. Coping or Scroll Saw
  2. Electric drill
  3. Drill bit that matched the tube.
  4. Wood file
  5. Sand paper
  6. Small paint brush
 
Building Steps:
  1. Print and cut out the light blue dotted rectangle after measuring to see if the 2” dimension actually measures 2” long on your print.
http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k38/BulBob/2inPattern.jpg

  1. Spread a thin layer of Elmer’s glue on one side of the board and apply the pattern.
  2. Cut the 2 pieces with the saw staying just on the outside of the green and red lines.
  3. Check the fit of the interlocking pieces and use a wood file as needed for a smooth sliding fit.
http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k38/BulBob/build.jpg

  1. Drill the hole half way through the red piece before gluing the pieces together.
  2. Drill slowly making sure the angle matches the line on the pattern.
  3. If the hole is centered and looks aligned properly glue the pieces together with Gorilla Glue and finish drilling the hole.
  4. Insert the tube and cut it a little long so it sticks out for now.
  5. Check the buoyancy before painting. It should sit less then half way submerged before painting.
  6. Thread your line thru the tube and use a piece of the tooth pick as wedge to hold it in place on the line after setting the depth you want to fish. They can also be slip rigged using split shot.
  7. Test it and using an 1/8 oz jig or 1/8 oz split shot with hook and bait to see if flips direction when given just a little tug! 
  8. A 1/4” board is good for a 2” long BulletBobber and 1/2" thick board can make a 4” long BulletBobber and 4” long one can handle 1/4 to 3/8 oz lead and many lures.

make a burley pot for top water fishing.

use a 6" diameter piece of PVC tube. cap 1 end off and drill holes in the side. Make a bracket for the back of the boat and mount. also could make an optional plunger with screws to mince up any frames from bait you have been using.

I used the aux bracket for mine.

stored for travel..


dropped when stopped..


Drop the bracket down to put deeper in the water..


Couple of shots of the plunger i made, i used a cheap broom handle..



The up and down of the boat keeps everything mixed up, so there is no real need for the plunger. just helps break everything up..

Don't forget to puncture the burley bag before you chuck it off the end of your boat. And don't forget to tie it into the burley pot or it will float out before you know it has gone

I found when using Squid as bait, keep changing the bait regularly as it looses the smell quick! Good luck everyone :)

Not much of a tip, but for what it's worth.

Use a kiddy's floating foam pool noodle and make a few knife slices in the end and presto you have a trace holder ready to go, hooks can be pushed into foam. 

Long or short traces, doesn't matter.  

Best to either make a loop or a swivel at the end for ledger rigs. Worked well when I had a boat.
