  1. Busted Old School 85's are back in stock

    Busted Old School 85 - The Proven Fish Slayer

    For a number of years, various companies have made a lure that has literally caught millions of fish worldwide. Over the years the material used and the size has changed and a select few anglers in the know have asked us to make the Busted Old School, which is CNC Machined from 1/4" x 7/8" brass bar and chrome plated. The length is 119mm. This particular shape is very flat and produces the flutter on the drop and the action on the retreive that these anglers desire. 

    Most of the guys prefer their own hardware and rip the rings and hooks off other brands of metals and put their preferred rings and hooks on, so we don't bother with hardware and leave that up to you.

  2. Look How Easy it is to Install Your Own Fishing Line Winding Station!

    Frank from Busted Fishing here. Today I want to show you how to set up your own professional spooling station in your own home using a BF216 line winder! To give you an idea of just how easy it is to get started spooling your fishing reels like a pro, I made this (less than) 3 and a half minute video to show you how.

    That’s right, it takes less than 3.5 minutes from opening the box to having your professional line winding station operational!

  3. How much line can I fit on my reel

    Spooling line on the reel

    How much line will fit on my reel?

    This is a question we get asked almost daily, as we sell Tasline braid by the meter. There is no simple answer as there are a few variables and so we try and give you as much information as possible to make the best decision to suit you.

    For example, spooling pressure. At a recent test we spooled the same reel with the same line at 1kg of drag pressure vs 5kg of drag pressure. The result was surprising:

     

    The first test we ran with a start drag of 0.97kg, which is surprisingly hard to pull off the spool. Most people would expect 1kg of drag to be very loose, but that’s not the case and we suspect is about as much as most tackle stores would use to spool a reel.

     

    At the conclusion of spooling the reel exactly to the line underneath the spool lip, we measured the drag again and it d

  4. LBGAME Truck

    LBGAME Truck

    LBGAME ........... the resurrection

    In 2012 we had the time of our life when we sold our house, quit our jobs and took the old LBGAME Patrol on a trip around Australia


    When we returned to Melbourne after exactly 12 months, we both went back to our old jobs, sold the van and started Busted Fishing. Since then it was all work work work and not much play. Since our trip, the dream was to do it again but permanently and we recently made the decision to give it another go. This time we decided to get a 4x4 truck build so we can do some work while we are on the road and also fish out of it in style. 
    So we ordered an Isuzu NPS 75/155 from Australian

  9. Abrasion Resistant Braid

    Abrasion Resistant Braid

    The old wife's tale that braid will ping as soon as it touches something under load is simply not true !!

    Many anglers still believe that as soon as braided line will touch the rocks or reef when fishing heavy drag, it's all over. But that's certainly not the case with all braids. I haven't compared all braids against each other but i can say with confidence that Tasline Elite is a standout when it comes to abrasion resistance. I get quite a few emails and messages from surprised anglers, who can't believe their line didn't pop after what they had put it through.

  10. Line Counter

    Line Counter

    The new "Sir Countalot" is alive

    There is not much i enjoy as much as designing a new product and this one was particularly cool as there appeared to be a real need for a heavy duty line counter that will not break under heavy drag reel spooling.

    Some guys like to know how much line goes on their reels and how much is left on the spools for next time. And some of our customers even mark their lines say every 100m for deep dropping etc.
