GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP

HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF SALT GUIDE WEEKLY REPORTS

Our Salt Guide Weekly Reports are posted each Friday (with the very occasional Thursday) to give you the very best and up-to-date information on what to target for the weekend and week ahead. On the odd occasion during the year if the weather is a blowout for the full week ahead sometimes we have had to leave the previous weeks reports up.

All the information for the week ahead is included in the weekly reports. If you are after details of a particular location outside what is provided, we hope you understand that we simply cannot provide location specific advice individually to hundreds of members over and above the detailed information that we put together each week for you. We definitely cover hot bites up and down the coast and, when we have it to hand, this information will always be included in the reports.

Current weather conditions, the time of year and moon phases all have a dramatic impact on what’s biting and where. Our predictive reports take all these factors into consideration and direct you where and when you should fish and what you should target in the coming week.

We are out on the water most days to keep on top of movements of fish as well as currents, swell and water clarity. Together with tide, these factors also play a major part on where we will start looking for fish to report back to you in the reports. Whilst many marks will change weekly, during certain moon phases some will stay the same for a couple of weeks.

For example, as we lead up to a full and new moon, the tides slow down and we will need to give you areas to fish for King George whiting during these periods where we know there is more strength in the tides and gutters, along with where the dirty water will be which the King George whiting love…

Aaron covers Port Phillip Bay, offshore and up and down the coast throughout the year. Gawaine covers Western Port, offshore and up and down the coast and at times Port Phillip Bay; while Chris Cassar covers Port Phillip Bay focusing on the Mornington Peninsula and the east side of Port Phillip Bay right up to Altona, plus Western Port and up and down the coast. So make sure you check out all the boys reports weekly.

TROUBLE LOGGING IN ON SAMSUNG DEVICE

Q) I AM HAVING TROUBLE LOGGING INTO THE SITE ON MY SAMSUNG AND HOW DO I CLEAR MY BROWSER HISTORY ON A SAMSUNG PHONE

A) We have recently moved to a new server and if you’re having trouble logging in, it will more than likely be that your phone or device has an open session of an old Salt Guide link in your device. Follow the steps below.

Clear all pages that are open on your phone and then completely clear your browser history and cache. This needs to be cleared all time not just last 7 days. Below is a great video link to learn how to clear your browser history on a Samsung phone correctly.

Make sure you follow the instructions carefully even by doing one step at a time then pausing the video and completing the step before moving onto the next step – clear both Samsung Internet and Google Chrome.

Everyone that has followed the below video step by step with a Samsung phone has successfully cleared their browser history and been able to log back in.

Video on how to clear browser history

After you clear your browser history and cache type www.saltguide.com.au in your preferred web browser and then make sure you also re-type your user name email and password manually not allowing it auto fill for the first time.

If you also have previously saved Salt Guide as a bookmark or app on your phone’s home screen you should delete them as these are also old links.

You don’t have to tick the box to clear passwords that maybe saved for other applications you have.

Your phone will also run a lot quicker by simply clearing your browser history every so often.

If you are stuck you can hit one of the contact forms on our public page and we will try to help you.


TROUBLE LOGGING IN ON iPHONE OR iPAD

Q) I AM HAVING TROUBLE LOGGING INTO THE SITE ON MY iPHONE OR IPAD

A) We have just moved to a new server and if you’re having trouble logging in it will more than likely be that your phone or device has an open session of an old Salt Guide link in your device.

Just completely clearing your browser history will help most people that are having trouble logging on that are members. This issue maybe because you have an old link already open on your iphone or your ipad and the device is saving an old password that maybe incorrect. To clear your browser history on an iphone or ipad follow the below instructions.

Double click the home button on your iphone (if your phone has one) and clear all the pages that are open or active on your phone by swiping up. The home button is the big circle button that is on the bottom of your iphone.

Once these are all gone – click safari which is your web browser for apple phones.

When you have clicked safari there is an icon on the bottom right hand side that looks like 2 squares.

Click this button and clear all the pages that are open in safari by pressing the x on each page which is located on the top left of each page that is open.

Once you have done this there is another icon that looks like a book and it is displayed near the bottom right hand side of your phone – when in safari.

Click this icon that looks like a book and then press clear, and then press all time, then press done at the top.

Go back to safari, the web browser and type in www.saltguide.com.au which will bring up the salt guide web site and log in again.

This will log you in on fresh page. If all these steps are followed and you clear all your old history this should solve your login issues and will make your phone run a lot better for a bunch of other things as well. Done!

Please also note that you can only be logged in on one device at a time, so if you are logged in at home on a PC or another device you won’t be able to log in on your phone until you have logged out of the device that is still logged in.

If you are using Google Chrome as your preferred web browser and not Safari you will just need to clear Google Chrome and you can learn to do this by just searching – How to clear Google Chrome and Cache on iphone / ipad or desktop for your model device – make sure you also clear all time and not just the last 7 days.

If you also have previously saved Salt Guide as a bookmark or app on your phone’s home screen you should also delete these as they will be old links.

If this does not work you can send an email on the  contact us form.

Q) I TRIED TO DO THE ABOVE STEPS ON CLEARING MY BROWSER HISTORY FOR IPHONE BUT I DIDN’T HAVE THOSE SETTINGS?

A) If you have an older iphone or the software hasn’t been updated in a while then to clear your browser history follow these steps: Go to settings, scroll down to safari and click, scroll down, once in safari, and press clear history and website data. Once this is done go back to safari on your home screen and type in www.saltguide.com.au and this will bring you up on a fresh page.
