Good Burly Cheap

Ok starting this thread up again,
what makes good burly and how to make burly cheap, post your tips and ideas,

Tip 1
Cooking oil works a treat to get that sleek going (i get 20litres of cooking oil for $12 from dominos)
Tip 2
buy bulk, eg go to city farmers and buy the biggest bag of pollard or choock pellats whatever tickles yopur fancy.
Tip 3
keep your old mulies from your last trip instead of chucking them out, they work a treat in your burly trail. adds a bit extra smell.
Tip 4
fish left overs from cleaning the fish work well in your burly eg (guts, head, etc)
Tip 5
leftover cooking oil from cooking keep it to put in your burly ( i have a jar under the sink i poor the oil into)
Tip 6
Use 3 litre juice container for a burly dispencer, keeps well and when u are ready to use just cut some holes in it and tie it to your boat. or jetty.

Please post your ideas and tips

you can put them into smaller drink bottles and freeze them as well.just poke a hole in it and tie a bit of rope around the top and drop in the water,lasts a long time as it thawes.

Burley Bomb

Thu, 2006-11-30 11:19

I went down the road a spent 10 dollars for bits and pieces and came up with this.

I used a PVC tube from a housing estate from the garbage bins, that's about half a foot long.
I went and got two caps for the tube, then I went and got 30 meters of white rope for $2.50 from WA salvage ( handy poly Rope 4mm x 30m ) and I found a old wire plastic cable roll to hold the rope.

then I got a swivel pin for the top of the burley bomb and I drill a hole in the top cap going through the cap and tube and used a copper pipe as a pin to hold the cap.

Then I placed 4 screws into the bottom cap with stainless screws to hold it in place.

Drilled a heap of holes around the main tube. and that's it

Thats a slick and a half Karl, no wonder you've been having some luck of late. Thinking I might have to put some effort in and make one up myself!

Thu, 2006-11-30 14:29

I'm allways using burley to catch my fish, works better than nothing, I allways rub my bait into the burley mix as well, allways keep my left overs and add it to the burley mix, when cabbing starts for us we use the left over crab shells as well.

Crabs

Thu, 2006-11-30 14:32

Have you heard any reports on the crabs Tommy? They can't be too far off starting down in Mandurah. I know theres heaps down in Busso, but I'm not sure if I can be bothered driving that far for a feed.

most of the time we just move around to find the fish, quicker than waiting for them to come to you. When fishing land based though it would be good.

Certainly

Thu, 2006-11-30 14:43

Very true that Danny. Also out in the boat when the seas are up and anchoring is required berley is a must to get the fish to come to you. Everytime we've used berley up north in the boat the sharks are on you before you know it.

I would have thought cooking

Thu, 2006-11-30 17:43

I would have thought cooking oil not to be a good option, Theses types of oils are saturated fats and therefore do not break down in water.
Please we must not promote polluting our waterways, apart from that sounds like a good burley.
