  1. Hey guys! Keen on giving the cod a crack! Never targeted them before but im definitely keen. Just as in a newb in this department, not asking for your spot x just curious of a land based spot i could go and try? I live in west sydney and dont mind a drive to make a weekend trip out of it
  2. Hey lads. Something which ive struggled to understand is say u buy a 2500reel with 5kg drag and advises 8lb etc How do u know what rod rating to get? Ive tried to search online and cant find anything about matching a rod to a reel in terms of weight. If anyone knows the answer for this? So if u get a reel at 2500 and it says 8lb does that mean u have to match it with a rod that is 8lb+ ?
  3. Thanks for the details mate! I will let u know how i go
  4. Hey fellas! Pretty new to sydney, mainly fish around concord hen & chicken bay flats for flathead. I wanna target bream on hardbodys as ive used soft plastics exclusively. I live out west but willing to travel around sydney if there is a decent land based spot. Ive heard hen n chicken bay is alright but not a lot of structure for bream and ive only ever caught flattys there. Ive also tried near bayview park wharf and pontoon and no luck either. Im going saturday morning if anyone is keen to tag along
  5. For bream usually around the 2-3inch plastics, had success with zman grubs in motor oil, very light jighead though or even hidden weight. Pretty slow retrieve, little hops Storm twitching nipper are also pretty solid. Cast near structure or under boats/pontoons. Flathead usual 3-4inch but some people use bigger Zman paddletails in opening night, motor oil, gold rush etc there not very fussy to be honest. Just hop it along the bottom. If ur heading to a tackle store im sure they can give u some tips, this is just what i use
  6. Good job buddy! Nice kingy
  7. Thanks mate! I have good teachers 🖒🖒🖒
  8. 2500 daiwa saltist with a daiwa gen black rod 😎👌
  9. Thanks fellas! Was a good day despite picking the 10kilos of weed that was all over my spinner bait after every cast lol
  10. Yo Went out this morning around 7 and got 3 bass, 2 were 30cm and then i got this whopper at 45cm Couldnt be happier! Used softplastic spinner, also christened my new rod and reel
  11. Definitely love the daiwa x8 or x4!!
  12. Pretty much anything u throw at them 😂 i caught bream one arvo with cheese and salami, using our after dinner scraps because we didnt have bait lol Other than that ive had a ton of luck with pillies
  13. I might be able to make it buddy
  14. Lucky you! I find it really hard to not get carried away in a tackle store haha. What are u thinking of getting. Yeah i looked online and a lot of good reviews, apparently there is another version of the soft cicadas called Fish Candy jelly cicada, they seem to be more like an actual soft plastic from the look of them Im probably going to pick up a spinnerbait and try that as well
  15. Nah i got this one from the local bass store, the brand is Tiemco soft shell cicada, everything on the box was japanese lol. Basically a firm foam cicada. Pricey though around $22 i think but im happy with it, spent my time getting it out of trees lol
