Stacer 519 Assault Pro a Mean Fishing Machine


STACER’S brand new serious fishing range the Assault Pro packs a punch with its new streamlined design and fishing features.

With a new hull shape featuring a sharper chine, sleek new gunnels and extra freeboard the 519 Assault Pro offers unbeatable stability at rest and cuts through swell with ease for a smooth and comfortable ride.

The redesigned 519 Assault is all about fishing with a rear casting platform including a live bait tank and front casting platform with a dual battery set up perfect for running an electric motor.

Built tough with the keen fisherman in mind the 519 Assault Pro features 4mm bottomsides and new modernised console for a sportier look with a wind deflector to protect the driver.

Stacer National Account Manager Drew Jackson said the new 519 Assault Pro was a game changer for Stacer’s fishing focussed range.

‘The new 519 Assault Pro really has set the mark for fishing boats and has been rated to 135hp to get you to your fishing spot quickly and includes a 77L fuel tank so you can stay out there all day.’

‘We have also extended the sides of the 519 Assault Pro by 120mm creating greater freeboard and ultimately better stability.’

‘You can option up the 519 Assault Pro to include a deluxe rod locker which can fit 4 rods up to 7ft in length and  you can even go one step further and upgrade to the electric rod locker,’ Drew said.

The 519 Assault Pro is available as a Stacer Ready 2 Go package complete with boat, motor, trailer and 3 year limited warranty for peace of mind.

One of our readers told us about sexy carp calendar or more correctly, this story about how it was such a bad thing! The calendar, known as The Carponizer  is designed to promote carp fishing in Germany.

Here is a  selection of the photos from the sexy fishing calendar. So what do you think?

And don't worry, no carp (or models) were hurt in the making of this calendar. The producers  say on Amazon:
"During the shoot greatest emphasis was placed on the well-being of carp and cute women"

And of course it was released just in time for Christmas.

WIN: one of five BBQ Buddy Fish Grillers!

You’ve landed a beaut, big fish and want to BBQ it to perfection. If you’ve got a BBQ Buddy Fish Griller you won’t risk ruining your catch!

And if you’re one of our five lucky winners, you’ll win one for free!

This you-beaut gadget is essentially a two-piece wire basket that latches together to hold your fish in place and in one piece while its cooking. BBQ Buddy Fish Griller eliminates the old issues of losing half your dinner when you try to turn the fish over, or having the fish tear when flipping it.

Made of a heavy duty metal, it has feet on both its top and bottom surfaces so your fish is always held above the grilling plate. 

The BBQ Buddy Fish Griller is sized at 390mm x 140mm. You can put a decent sized fish in it, and it works just as well in the oven too. Clean-up’s easy – it’s dishwasher safe.

At only RRP $15.95 from Bunnings,  it makes a great gift idea to suggest to the kids – and it’s a smart tool to have around if you’re planning on serving a nice big  fish for Christmas lunch or dinner!

And best of all, we've got 5 to give away. Simply send us an email telling us which species of fish you'd like to grill with your BBQ Buddy Fish Griller to go in the draw. Comp ends Midnight EST 10 December 2014. Winners drawn at random.
