Rocky's Rig
« on: October 30, 2012, 01:25:57 pm »
Thought i would do a report on the boat im lucky enough to use seeing as i carnt catch a fish at the moment lol!!!
My oldman bought this 1979 caribbean rivera back in 1984 its been an awsome rig and have had some great memories on her from my first Flatty to my first tuna even my first trout on the gordan river!!!
she has a 2006 140 suzuki with about 100hrs on her(Think the oldman had 20hrs on her before i started to use it lol he doesnt fish much now his in the caravan stage of his life lol)
I use it to take my kids out to chase the odd flatty and gummy but i really enjoy chasing gamefish around tassie from tuna at EHN to mako's of Devonport!!! Sometimes with great results and some really tough trips where i trolled for three days without a touch at EHN!!!Then a year later to get a hook up in 30sec's of setting the spread of lures thats gamefishing i guess lol!!!
Here's a few pics of the old girl havent even washed her yet lol







Cheers Rocky

Rocky's Rig, Certainly a ripper rig that's for sure and can see it's been well looked after too. As Dave stated Rocky, some good memories as well. Sure you'd have no trouble selling it either.
