  1. Sydney Kings

    Reply to a few questions; I don’t mind sharing Proverbs 20:18 “Seek advice n all you do and you’ll find success” WHAT DETERMINES METHOD: I fish with paternoster rig and live Yakkas or slimies or fresh or live squid again paternoster. Heavy snapper lead and 8 or 9/0 circle hook. if livies I bridle with rubber band through the front of eye socket (look it up on YouTube). * WHAT DETERMINES LOCATION: Deep water and drop offs. * MOST IMPORTANT MOST IMPORTANT THING - IF YOU KEEP DONG THE SAME THING THE SAME WAY - YOULL GET THE SAME RESULT. * DONT USE ANY scents e.g. insect repellent, sun screen. keep trying different methods
  2. Sydney Kings

    What a cracker season for Kingfish. Things just seem to get better and better. I don’t think I’ve boated one under 60cm for months and total this year is 132 from Long Reef and Sydney Harbour (mostly the harbour) and not any particular location - they seem to be every where - North harbour, The Heads, Sow and pigs, Clifton gardens, even around Gladesville and off the Opera House. Last week I boated. 87 and 92 just in front of Doyle’s Se food restaurant - (thought of asking if they wanted to buy some fresh kingfish - only joking I know this is illegal). they have been taking Yakkas, slimies and even pilchards, so not hard to get, but they are hard to hold and I’ve lost some thumpers on 80lb Fluro leader and 60lb braid.

    Great report Abs, Jews are great fun -been really good number this year
  4. Circle Hooks - Info needed

    Circle hooks are great on Kings, dolphin fish, salmon and other Pelagius, but I wouldn’t bother with whiting or bream - OK for flatties.
  5. Livebait tank with livebait tank

    Thanks for replies so far, the squid never seem to last more than a few hours, but Yakkas and slimes last all day. I guess I was asking advice from those who have set up a second livebait / cutting board as I have only ever had room for one and Kingies around Sydney are going nuts. I’ve caught over 100 since December, only about 20% legal though and most of the legal ones released.
  6. Harbour session

    Well done Sam bros, - what plastic did you hook the King ? I’m out twice a week (when weather permits) - I’ll look out for you (490 Quinny Fishabout with Blue canvas Bimini). Although 6lb is light, Ive bloated legal kings on bait jig rigs fishing for Yakkas - admittedly in deep water and it was a loooong fight and was certain I would get busted - just lucky I guess - it’s lots of fun though.
  7. Livebait tank with livebait tank

    I’m looking to get an integrated live bait tank with cutting board as I need a second live bait tank and no other space (that doesn’t significantly reduce my fishi g space). If I mix squid and livies, the squid chew the livies up of attack each other. I would appreciate others experience (and maybe some pics) thanks bojulabah. Kind regards Bob Pickworth

  9. Sydney Kings - not

    A beautiful day with good mates, perfect weather, low swell and good drift and water temp (21degrees, BUT disappointing result over trips to Long Reef in past week. Lots of trevally (40cm) but 3rat kings amongst 2 boats and 5 mates x 4 hours = 20 hours for 3 Kinies😚😚 Got a nice Little tailor on fly though.
  10. Sydney Kings - They’re back

    A top day out wide - filled up the live bait tank with Slimies and Yakkas in double quick time and got hammered by the odd Bonito and Salmon inbetween catching livies. On the way to our destination (Manly Reef) there were acres of surface boils, which turned out to be Salmon with Trevally. Makerel, Yakkas and tailor underneath. They are still feeding on “glassies”. Hooked up to a Big shark that took a livie- fought it for 20 morning nites before cutting it off to get back to the Kings. Catch: 17 kings, 4 legal, the rest were rats, several just under 65. 6 Salmon (all around 2.5kg) 4 snapper 2 Trevally
  11. Sydney Harbour Salmon

    Fly is small plastic dumbbell eyes, Mylar tube, pink Krystal Flash, a few strands of black faux buck tail on a no 2 “J”hook (I’ve been using Sea Prince saltwater hooks, but any fly type hook about this size seems to be fine.
  12. First king on plastics!

    Well done Mike - They don’t call them kingfish for nothing. “Fishing is a sickness (I like being sick)”
  13. Sydney Salmon action

    At the moment (mid October) only very occasional hookups appear to be to metals and weighted plastics. The only hook ups I have had have been on 10gram metals, 2” plastic grubs with tiny lead heads cast with the wind and 6-7” “Sluggo” or paddle tails in white colour
  14. Sydney Salmon action

    I cut their throat immediately and bleed them (over the side of the boat on a tail rope), put them on ice, skin them and they taste great. I remember in 1970’s when akingfish were used as cat food and never available in fish shops as no one would eat them -different story now. my wife crumbs them in Panko bread crumbs and lightly fry’s them for 2-3mins. They are good eating, mind you, I don’t like break and really only like Kingfish, blackfish, Dolphin fish, flathead and Mulloway. Catch plenty of other species, but give them away.
  15. Sydney Harbour Salmon

    Eat Salmon - are you joking. Of course, I love them, but I cut their throat immediately and put them on ice. This being done, they are great eating if fresh, however, they will not keep for more than about a day. Length was 55cms - all were about the same and lots of trevally under them, also taking the fly, as were bonito.
