Holiday

Post by Flouro on Tue 01 Dec 2015, 10:00 am

Hi All,

Back from holiday,been fixin cruze I have had to redo the rear brakes that shite em selves when out detectin near Leonora ear lier this year,thye pads had worn thru to the backing plate and one decided to half fall out and start scraping. when I pulled it out to fix it the pistons had been acting as pads on both sides and worn on an angle so had to cut with a grinder before fitting the new pads which were flown into leo the day before

Funny thing, we camped out at the dam just east of town and thought we could get a few yabby's while were waiting but where's the water......huge big dam but no water so we drove around a while trying to find some and out in the middle to one side there's a friggin bloody great hole which is very well hidden....I think we got 3 yabbies

Anyways the brakes are all new rotor's pads shoes and wheel bearings and seals all done as well, oh and brand new calipers as well, it turned out it was better to buy all new parts than have them skimmed and renew the pistons, so she's a cruzin again

Been fishin and catchin a few for bait for the craypots but no luck so far, yea plenty of bait to catch but no crays as yet, just pickling a few herring fillets(first try)

Hi Salt-d,

Maintenance, whats that,when it breaks fix it....or I don't go lookin for trouble it finds me. With the dam if you look on google it's got plenty of water with a few gold patches close by

Hi Toad, I don't think we've met, a friend got a couple and everyone started putin their pots back in and they vanished again

Hi Peter,

Down our way the weather would calm off a couple weeks early and the crays would have all moved out just before we put our pots in, so at least now the boys get a chance to get a few for chrissy, but this season the weather hasn't really calmed off like it normally used to, so the season is a bit odd down our way

Cheers Ron

Hi Flouro
If you were at Malcolm dam which is east of Leonora it is full of koi /carp which love young yabbies. We were there afew years ago and couldn't believe the amount of koi swimming around.

Some one, can't remember who, told me there was an open cut up Duketon way which was full of large Koi.  You'd wonder what they would eat.

Whites are starting run here now apparently.

It was reported some years ago that the WA dept of Fisheries trialled certain types of fish and shellfish in old open cut mines where the water was unfit for human consumption due to the high mineralization.
It was also reported that the species introduced into those open cuts thrived really well.
I did receive a report a while back that you can actually get WA marron from one of the old mine sites and the locals know where it is. Whether that is true, I don't know but, the dept of fisheries did put species into old open cut mines that had water in them. It was reported in the West Newspaper.

On our excursions over there, have always scored a good feed of yabbies from Niagara dam.
