  8. hey raiders, I headed out yesterday morning to fish one of my regular haunts in the harbour, no bait but the plan was to get a few squid and if they weren't around, just flick a few lures and see what's about. luckily there was a few around and in a short time I had 5 lollipop arrow squid. At sunrise sent a squid out and then it was time to wait.. first squid got its head picked off which was annoying but whilst I was retrieving it I saw a big green torpedo with a big yellowtail turn away right at my feet, quickly pinned another live squid and casted out, keeping the reel in free spool, 20 seconds later the line started to peel off, gave it a few metres and tightened up. straight away I knew this wasn't your average 60-80cm king as it took off like a missile and didn't look like stopping but eventually it slowed down and I started to gain on it, for the next five or so minutes it would come in abit closer, then rip me back out deep, eventually it started to give in and came in close, but as usual with kingfish they never give up and it had a few really close calls in trying to get me around a pylon but managed to steer it clear each time, finally managed to get it on the surface and since I was solo with no net, I had to walk it around to where I was able to reach down and grab it. To say I was stoked was an understatement, on the brag mat it was just budging 95cm and easily 7-8kg, Probably one of my most memorable catches land based especially on 20lb leader and with all the structure around me. Took me a while to compose myself after that but eventually got myself back fishing. Not long after I hooked a decent trevally on my lighter outfit on a squid strip which gave me a huge struggle around the pylons but eventually landed it, going just under 55cm. Sent it back as I already had the king. About 5 minutes after that another squid got slammed and I was hooked up to another king, which was fighting very similar to the first which had me thinking I had another 90+ king, eventually managed to tire this one out as well and got it to the surface, easily 80-85cm when the hooks pulled. Normally I would be fuming but I was kind of relieved, I was going to release it anyway and landing it would have been another mission in itself. Ran out of squid and was out of there at 9am, best session I've had in a few months. Looks like its going to be a good season
  9. People have different opinions, but for me personally I find anything east of the harbour bridge to be fine, the pollution people talk about Is under layers of sediment at the bottom of the harbour, the water itself has never been cleaner. West of the bridge pelagic fish which are found higher up in the water column such as kingfish and bonito would be fine they could be a few kilometres offshore one day and up the Parramatta river the next so any "possible" pollution wouldn't effect them at all, the only fish you'd watch out for are the ones that bury themselves or feed off the sediment like whiting flathead and flounder.
  10. Hello tash welcome to the site, In regards to snagging, most places around rocky areas would be quite snaggy so the simple solution is to not use a sinker at all, this lets the bait move around naturally which is more appealing to the fish and wont snag up anywhere near as often. Alternatively you could fish off wharves around Sydney harbour, there are plenty of areas that hold good fish during summer such as Clifton gardens, balmoral and pier 2 just to get you started.
  11. As mentioned above as long as you're confident in the gear you use then that's the main thing. Personally I exclusively use fluorocarbon and have never had an issue with knot strength, tying knots, line snapping more easily etc. Ive found it to make a huge difference especially targeting landbased kings. Ive fished side by side with people using mono and they haven't had a bite whilst ive caught a few kings. Again that could come to numerous other variables but simply, I haven't found fluro to reduce my catch rates, if anything ever since I started using it ive caught more and bigger fish than before I started using it. One memory that comes to mind was one session in the harbour last year, a school of kings follows up another guys live yakka as he retrieved it, they bumped it and stayed circling it for a while but none of them had a proper go at it, I casted a pillie cube in behind and it got taken within seconds, he was using some fat grey mono looked about 40lb, I was using 12lb fluro. Again there are a few other variables but I believe if he was using a clear line he would have atleast hooked up.
  12. Welldone fellas soundslike a top session
  13. Thats true mate its always fun catching youre own bait It is Hey mate yeah at the moment theres a few fish around north harbour so areas like balmoral and the spit bridge are holding some fish. Just gotta be at the right place at the right time
  14. That's a good point, yeah i'm not sure, maybe it was choking on the yellowtail, it was hooked in the corner of the mouth and it was a well conditioned fish so that's the only other thing that might have slowed it down. Thanks Wellzy Thanks Tara Cheers Penguin
  15. It was freezing 😂 i couldnt move my fingers Yeah i noticed that scratchie, for a king its size it came up pretty easy, must be the cold water slowing their metabolism Makes waking up that early well worth it thats for sure
