As we near the end of harvest, having decided what to do and what not to do about “post harvest” treatments, now is the time to ensure that your car has been serviced, and the car fridge is in good order. Some fridges may need re-gassing and this should be done before heading off on a break.
It’s always a good idea to make sure that the yabby nets are in good order, and that there will be no escapees. The camper trailer or boat trailer wheel bearings also may need some TLC before heading off. Now is the time to check the state of the lure box, and make sure that you call in to your favourite tackle store prior to setting forth. Fill your gas cylinders, and don’t forget that if you are planning on fishing in NSW or Victorian waters, a fishing license will be required.
