  1. Spit Bridge 25/1

    Awesome catch and report! I'm there most weekends (at night), and squid have been few and far between this summer. No shortage of tailor though. Half a pillie under a float will put you on to some decent size ones right where you were.
  2. First Ever Kayak Outing - Narrabeen Lake

    Welcome to the kayaking family! I'm usually in the lake on mine too, so if you see a green Jackson Big Tuna with a Jack Russell onboard, don't be afraid to say g'day. A good launching spot is Wimbledon Ave, as there is usually plenty of room to load/unload, and launch into the water. I don't think you need a sticker to park there, but check first. It won't be long before you will be investing in a trolling motor and marine battery..... it does make life a whole lot easier! If it is a bit on the heavy side, look up a company called "Boathoist". They do a good electric kayak loader, and are located in Coffs I think. Thule do a decent manual one too. As for the parking sticker, there is usually someone selling them on Gumtree for anywhere from $50-$120 depending on the seller.
  3. Lure fishing setups!

    I've gone a little lighter - 1-2kg 7ft graphite, with a ci4+ 1000 size reel. 5lb Berkely Fireline Exceed line (best braid I've ever used) and 5lb leader. Landed a couple of flatties on the weekend using 80mm wrigglers, with the biggest going 47cm. No sweat at all. I find this set-up great, as I cast twice as far as my 3-4kg spin gear.
  4. Whiting on Poppers

    What a stonka! Surface lures are so much fun on the sand flats.
  5. Pittwater Trevally

    I've caught plenty of Trev's at night on soft plastics. They go nuts for the squidgy wriggler in dark green.
  6. Nice jew at Berowra

    Awesome catch!
  7. What's your favourite lure ??

    Berkeley Pop Dog in Warrigal. Best Bream lure I have ever used.
  8. central coast bream

    What a horse!
  9. Rainy day ,Tailor,Kings and Bonnies

    Great report! That's an area that I've never fished, but keen as to get down there. Does it produce much land based around the wharf?
  10. Recommend a car to transport a kayak?

    I have one of these loaders for when I had my Prado. Essentially the same as the Nautic, but with an electric winch, which loaded it really easily. Cost around $1k from a company in Coffs Harbour.
  11. Botany Shark claims its first victim

    I've seen far too many sharks only metres from shore. Not just at the beach, but in middle harbour as well. We only let our jack russell swim in the lake, and even then only up to waist deep - 10m from shore.......mainly out of paranoia!
  12. Trolleys

    I use the Sea to Summit trolly on my Jackson kayak. Holds up very well.
  13. My first Marlin!

    Awesome catch! Probably getting a bit late in the season for kings at this stage. The more known spots might still be holding a few though. If you strike out on the kings, stick on a metal lure for some tailor. There's plenty of decent size ones around and they are a fun by-catch.
  14. Stockton beach

    Great report. I will be up there on boxing day and can't wait. I will remember to stock up on some salmon first!
  15. Power Switches

    I will look into them a bit more. The thing is, my steering is foot controlled, so I would have very busy feet in tight areas!
