  6. Allow Me To Introduce Myself

    Hi all, thought I would start up this thread for members to get to know each other a little. We have had so many new members in the last few months and its interesting to know where we all come from. I am mrsswordfisherman aka Donna and have the honour of being one of 2 female members on this site . I am a moderator on this site and visit daily to read about the experiences of members. I am pushing 50 ( but sometimes act like a 20 yr old ) and am the partner of swordfisherman aka Stewy. I am a mother of 2 beautiful and smart daughters. A Registered Nurse involved with Nurse Education/OH&S, I enjoy trivia, fishing, the arts, 10 pin bowling and online card tournament directing and competing (cribbage, canasta, euchre etc.) I have only been fishing for a year or two but I am learning real fast and have a great mentor in swordfisherman. My catches are not that notable but all caught on sp's. In fact I have never used live bait and have literally "grown up" on these plastic wonders. Best so far is a bass of 52 cms and a pb flattie of 56 cms. I enjoy reading the posts from members and learn something every day. We can be seen around the Sydney waterways in our teal coloured Polycraft boat, give us a wave if you see us. Don't forget to fill in your member profile and send a personal message at any time if any problems. Cheers mrsswordfisherman ADDIT: A few months after I posted the above in 2006 I became one of the 3 owners of fishraider. I am the only female owner of a fishing website in Australia I believe. Now, 12 months on, there are now many, many more then 2 female members, women who like to fish and join in with their hubbys, sons, dads etc.... are now regular contributors to this site. Our aim is to have the forum evolve into a place where women, young folk and men can share their fishing experiences from beginners to the more experienced. A website that is informative, educational and enjoyable with offline activity such as socials, workshops and lots more. Contribute to fishraider, don't be shy and enjoy it

    Thanks BN and Happy Mothers Day to all raider Mums. I will be going out to a special lunch. Have a great days with your mums and wives.
  8. is the humps worth effort

    Bellambi is the best ramp and anywhere near the Seacliff Bridge is worth a shot. Fish anywhere on the gravel on the edge of the reef.

  12. Hairtail

    That is interesting. Throw some posts up with your daily progress @eastwood1980 Swordie and I went on Thursday afternoon for some hairtailing. We were at Waratah Bay and Jerusalem Bay. No hairtail around for us. Judging by the years gone by and when we hold our Fishraider hairtail event it is a little early and not cold enough. Do a search here in fishraider as there are many, many hairtail posts. There is also an article in the article section It is getting mighty cold so don't forget to rug up and take hot coffee
