Lakes Entrance - Fishing And Crabbing

  • Lakes Entrance, Victoria
  • This is around 4 hours drive from Melbourne.
  • Sandblasting Jetty on Bullock Island is a popular spot.
  • Map or GPS (see below)
  • Tide Time (Check at Australian Tide Time)
  • Fishing License (Purchase at Kmart or DPI online)
  • Container/Ice Box or Fish Keeping Net (Limit of 30 crabs or 1 litre per person)
  • Sunscreen
  • Drinking water (You will be there for a long time; with so much funs, you won't be able to stop crabbing.)
  • Gloves (Save your hands from pulling the rope.)
  • Tongs (Save your fingers.)
  • Bait - Chicken bones, seal meat, squid, etc.
  • Some ropes to tie the baits.
  • A bucket (to collect some sea water.)
  • Drop Nets - Get good quality one; it makes the difference. (Limit of 2 per person)
  • Ice - This would keep crabs alive a bit longer.

Fun Part – Crabbing:
  • Best time is the low tide towards the highest tide.
  • Tie chicken to the bottom of the net.
  • Throw the net into the ocean and wait between 10~15 minutes before pulling it up.
  • Put a rock in the net if current is strong.  This will help the net sinking to the bottom of ocean quicker in the spot you like.
  • Remember to keep your crabs in some sea water, so they can live for a bit longer.  One way would be keeping crabs in the fish keeping net, which puts in the ocean until you are leaving.
Best Part – Eating:
  • Cook it ASAP.
  • Crab does not survive well once it is out of sea.
  • Make a soup, deep fry, stream, etc.

The Bose Soundbar 700 Won't Connect to App

Bose has one of the best speaker sound. I learnt about Bose more than 25 years ago and still a fan.  I bought Soundbar 700 in 2018.  It took me a while to set it up but it has been giving me troubles once a while.  Recently, I was not able to connect Soundbar 700 with my phone.  Done the factory reset on the soundbar, it didn't work. I spent hours reseting everything multiple times and finally I found this article, .  Tweaking them all and finally got it to work again. I think the most important setting is to TURN WPS OFF on the router!  Hope it helps.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)
