2/1/18 Sydney Harbour for nought

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

Took the kids out on Sydney Harbour yesterday for a fish but couldn't catch a cold... or even a bite!

We fished Snails Bay around 2pm, Woolwich moorings around 3:30, then after a swim tried Hunters hill at 4:30. The weather turned so we headed back and got in as it started to rain.

I did catch a metre long stainless ladder.. was going to clean it up but covered in oysters so the kids would have stepped on it for sure.

Catch of the day! Nice ladder Pirates ahoy

Was burleying mouldy bread maybe that was a turn-off? Also burleyed some frozen bonito from last trip.

Would love any pointers on bait / rigs / protected spots to get the kids on to fish!

Cheers,

Andrew.

hi,

try fishing around the wharfs...rose bay / watsons bay /clifton garden / balmoral

burley with old bread you can buy a bag for $2 at most bakery

use pilly / chicken / squid strip on a paternoster type rig without any sinker (10lb trace will do) and just let it sink thru the burley trail and most of the time you will catch yakkas snapper trevally jackets and even a kingy (caught a 61cm kingy while trying to catch yakka for bait lol)

usually use hooks size from 4 to 10 or use big hooks (1/0 to 6/0) when u get sick of catching small fish lol
