Hi guys, I'm new to Fishraider, Sydney and Australia. I'm living in Glebe looking to meet other fishermen/ladies. I'm free at weekends and sometimes evenings. I have all the gear and no idea(well... only no idea about great spots to fish in Sydney). Land based fishing as yet to get a boat. So if you're like me wanting fishing company hit me up 👍

Just to a jetty at the end of Glebe Point Road in the park area. Thought structure and the boats would give the fish good cover so gave it a crack

Welcome steve to fishraider.

As weather is warming up there should be more fish in the harbour.

Its luck and matter of repetitive spot fishing, one day you catch good feed and next day dougnuts.

In late Nov and Dec go to Green point reserve at Watsons bay south side ( looking towards harbour bridge. Couple of hours before sunset there are fishmen chasing big travelly.

Its great catch and release fishing if you dont like eating travellies.

Use light gear its great fun.

My biggest catch there was 57cm.

Great numbers of travelly come into harbour maybe to spawn.

Good luck.

P.s use cheap coles pink prawns

No sinkers and burley  bread.

Please DO NOT USE these as bait- they are imported from overseas and are one of the reasons why the whitespot outbreak occured in Qld. This could drastically affect crustaceans in NSW as well if introduced

Thank you for both tips. I will be sure to check out that location too. Noted about the prawns.

Thanks PaddyT.

The locals or fishmen uses cheap prawns there. I surely will tell them not to use it when i go there.

 

 

I always use fresh Hawkesberry prawns but very pricey.

Hey mate, I'm a fisherman located in Glebe too. I also fish a lot on that jetty when I'm too lazy to plan a proper trip, there's a good amount of leatherjacket and bream there.
