  1. Anyone know why? - Failed past 4 trips

    I noticed as well strange differences, I heard a few fishos mutter the moon phase after the super moon event we had this last full moon🤷‍♂️. But who knows sometimes they just aren’t on the bite.
  2. Morning flatties before work

    Darling point ferry wharf.
  3. Best beach fishing bait

    If you can find bait where you are fishing and it is something the fish can’t normally get. Example if the is kungee about and you can saw it open the fish go ballistic. Or if you can find beach where there is pippies you literally do the pippie shake and find the pippies with you feet while you wait for the next strike. Otherwise pilchard and worms are the staple.
  4. Sydney Land Based - Wharf and Rocks

    Try darling point the wharf holds squid and yellow tail, either side of it has either man made rock walls built on a rock shelf where you can land anything the Harbour has to offer.. I have fished the western point of Clifton in low tides it’s a shelf that drops straight into the shipping and ferry channel. (Don’t get caught out there afterhalfqay to high tide like I did as the shelf becomes surrounded by the rising tide well before it is anywhere near submerged. Another alternative for an all nighter is head towards Bundeena, once in the National Park before you reach bundeena there is a markedly bushwalk or fire trail to Mali beach. You have to walk in from there, takes about and hour. Once at Mali head to the south end. There is a very small protected beach with rocks suitableto safely fish from on either side. It is wuite deep all the way up to the shore break on the steep beach. Most times I’ve been there I have reached my bag limit on whiting, salmon, tailor, and kingfish well at the very least the limit of the bag I am prepared to carry for the trek back to the car. 🙃
  5. Morning flatties before work

    I got this obese 90cm Lizard this morning. Sorry I don’t have better angled pics, it’s girth was phenomenal. He jumped on a pilchard I had out on a floating rig, Which I set up in preparation for the livies I was busy pursuing for My assault on the Kingies terrorizing the Harbour presently. In fact I forgot all about it! I caught my first yellow tail and turned to where the float was last, no where to be seen(ffs)! To my surprised delight This species typical lazy fat lizard had ambushed the Pilly and taken rig, kingfish worthy float and all backdown to his sunbaking spot. I cant stress how relieved I was that I landed this fat specimen without foiling my plan to instantaneously transfer the first lives I caught from hook to live rig.
  6. Shovelnose Sharks - Good Eating?

    They are good eating. straight off the beach into the foil with butter, salt and pepper on to the fire. finish with a squeeze of lemon. (assuming you have all those things in your tackle box )
  7. Need a fishing partner to join me on my boat ...

    Hey mate I’m keen as if you are still looking I fish the harbor every day and it is boiling with activity right now. I’ve seen kings as far in as Pyrmont in 3 foot of water, but only hooked one. Really keen to find someone with a boat to getnin on the action. Cheers james 0447129883
