    molineux point landbased?

    Yeh its not like your regular kind of breakwall. Those cylinders are massive & extremely hard to manoeuvre on & especially with gear. Agree on your call, the harbour would be the go.

    PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE. PREVENTION is the only option! Hopefully, the outcome of this (and it's not over yet) is CURE, (the damage done). But these fish are not replaceable in the short term and so preventing it in the future is our only option. EXCUSES DON'T WORK! bn

    molineux point landbased?

    defiantly a shame that you cant fish there. I gave the harbour a thought, very rarely go up there due to the millions of boats and other fishos. Is there any wharf in particular? But man, 11 kings in 18 days, almost one a day. i'm clearly missing out on some fun in the city.

    Sydney kingfish.

    The crew managed to get amongst the kingfish. With approximately 50 fish landed within a 3 hour session. Enjoy the footage!

    Fibreglass repair

    Agree it looks real hard, but as I say I'm not sure if it's a big deal not to have it like it was but appearance wise I'd like to fix it up and just not sure how I can, but was hopeful that someone may be able to help with a way I could.

    molineux point landbased?

    Drove past there this week and there is a no fishing sign on the gates into the area. Also the rocks when we see them up close from the boat look a little dangerous to fish comfortably. Just pick one of the Sydney harbour wharves. Plenty of rats around. I'm up to 11 so far in 2019, all shore based and a few of them have been on the bream gear with soft plastics for the fun of it.

    Electric motor

    Hi TC, no plate between motor and hull but I think you can buy a quick release plate for them. The pack came with bolts (extra long) and rubber gromets. I ended up putting some aluminium square tubing under the hull and bolting through that for extra strength. Mine is a 12volt 55lb 54" You won't regret your purchase!

    Bait presentation for bream

    @seasponge, actually it is not a big problem. Thighs are a bunch of muscles. I separate those muscles with knife and get a number of them of different sizes. Then I cut stripes (1cmx3.5cm) for bait from larger muscles, and cut leftovers and smaller muscle into smallish pieces which are used for burley or for catching baitfish. Well, then add cheese, garlic, whatever. @Yowie, I use baitholders too and love them. I used to use size 3 until I was out of stock. However its rather uncommon size now, so I switched to size 4 for better small bait presentation, and landed everything from small mouth whiting up to small sharks. Mustad 9555B still commonly available in nickel finish. Though I prefer bronze hooks to nickel - as they rather just bend than crack under pressure. Were your (old stock?) Mustad 9555b hooks - nickel or bronze?

    Now that you mention it the fish does match the sand really well.

    Jon I’ve fished for those Norfolk Kingies.If you can get the odd one past the sharks well & good.The difference there is that there is only one commercial fisherman there who takes only what’s needed for the restaurants there-he does no damage at all. mark

    Jon The Tuna & King issue are related.We almost had our Kingie stocks wiped out by those unspeakable traps 20 years ago.It took Kingie stocks 15 years to come back.Same with the Tuna.They have been massacred in the Indonesian breeding grounds as well as at our 200 mile exclusion zone for years by international long liners.This is linked inexorably to our decline in tuna stocks.

    Bait presentation for bream

    Hi, Try threading the hook through bait up and over the eye of the hook leaving a little tail below the bend. Half hitch one or two loops around the bait above the hook. They will pull out under any strain. KB

    One word BN...... Disgusting!!!! Although the country is in severe drought, in this day and age, the mismanagement of our regional waterways is criminal. Someone has to put there hand up and fix this problem! Cheers scratchie!!!

    What are these squid lure things?

    Yes! Generally for marlin fishing! They run behind the boat and imitate fleeing bait fish! That one is a cheaper version!

    Isn't that flattie perfectly camouflaged when you look at the sand underneath it!

    Thanks for the report KB, I very much needed the boost from reading something written to support the main thrust of the dissent with the Governmental lack of action. The cartoon in the Guardian just about sums up EVERYTHING. Cheers mate, bn

    molineux point landbased?

    Hey fellas first post here & a long time lurker, I'm looking to fish molineux point over the next coming weeks with some mates for some land based kingies as they haven't caught a kingie yet and i got them hooked on kingies as my uncle and i pulled many of them from kurnell cliffs 10 years ago. Unfortunately i don't have a boat and cant join in with the boatpark there, and i haven't fished there before. and seeing everyone here pulling a few out, within casting distance, but see no one there on the rocks? anyway I'm just asking, are the rocks as bad as people make them out to be and are you allowed to fish there anymore. My dad tried the spot 15 years ago and said the rocks have 2 meter gaps in-between them. If not any suggestions for a nice landbased spot in the north side of port hacking & anywhere botany bay. I have tried gymea wharf for pickers & people casting over my line, Kurnell groynes don't produce anymore ether I was looking at the rocks at la perouse point or that rockwall at the swimnets in Sandringham. I have 11 squid in the freezer from last night and yakkas arnt a problem. Thank you for taking time to read

    Couple of questions where abouts in NZ were these caught and when you say fly fishing, is that trailing a fly down a burley trail, or some other technique ? cheers

    Botany Bay

    Thanks for the report mate, if I see boats I keep moving too, nothing worse than fishing in a car park, and as u mentioned kings can be anywhere in the bay, each to there own. I'll be having a crack Monday morn after this heat and crowds settles down.

    Great report. Good on you for not following the crowd and doing your own thing If you count channel makers as hookups, then you'd also have to count trees, oysters and the like. That means I am now classed as a master fisher. richard
