  1. Raiders, been an avid reader for around 12 months, but had nothing noteworthy to shout about - this is my first post - so go easy! Missus was working late tonight so dashed home for a quick flick across the Rose Bay sand flats. I’ve really been persevering with a few donuts and wind knots here over the past 6-months, but given how close it is to home, and being primarily land based - I’ve kept coming back. finally, for the first time in a long time, I actually saw some action. Interestingly, I turned up around 6;45pm - the low tide was the lowest I’ve ever seen it. The waves wer

  2. After a long break from fishing been getting back into it. Been using live worms and nippers and struggling to get 1 or 3 fish, sometimes nothing. Then last Saturday night after the southerly died down, and then the following morning I got amongst them. Bronte Beach. Rising tide, live beachworms, running sinker rig with 8 lb leader. Been eating these all week. Bloody good to know that you can still catch a great feed in the middle of Sydney. On Sunday morning I was plucking them out from in between about thirty surfers!

  3. Hi Raiders, This is actually a fishing report but here is a bit of preamble... One of my mates ( Bob) is a complete newbie to fishing and never eats fish. I have been telling him for years that if I only had access to supermarket or fish shop produce then I would probably never eat fish either but... its a very different equation to catch your own fish, treat it properly and cook it yourself. He remained unconvinced so I offered to take him out and catch some Blue Spotted Flathead and then take it home and cook it for him. Before heading out to the flathead grounds we

  5. So to sunmarise....the bobbin knot if tied correctly relies on friction between the braid and mono leader.....no melting of mono end required but can be done as a precaution???

  6. Hi all...baz,you asked the question in woodsys thread but I’ll answer here cause I think it more appropriat here. i never turn my radio on because I find it anoying so it’s always off.next time I see you up there I’ll keep it on. my mate had a kingy at the side of the boat and me with 4 failed attempts with the net cost him his fish,it may or may not have been legal size,but it was very disappointing to drop the fish like that being the first fish of the day without a bite for a few hours.we ended up with 2 snapper,the biggest went 52cm.

  7. The pr is a very strong knot, I use it on all line class but I find it pretty tricky with lines of 6lb. I've never had one fail, so never had to do one outside of the house but wouldn't be keen on doing one while out fishing. If I did have a break off for some reason I would revert to another rod ready to go ( as mentioned never happened) or do an fg.

  8. They are fine to take. And as mentioned it is a bag limit of 5. I have eaten them in the past and they are not too bad but the larger ones have a slight chlorine taste! Cheers scratchie!!!

  9. Listen to this man. Pretty plain and simple. 5 bag limit of shark and rays. Shovel nose rays/sharks are mentioned in the bag limit section. Some of you may be reading far too much into the research programs links.

  14. Hi Baz, The boats 12v wiring system is fairly simple and with a bit of patience and a couple of ales most problems can be tracked down. Are your nav lights LED or do they have globes? If globes, the contacts can get a bit of corrosion on them, give them a light rub with some fine sandpaper. Did you loose both side lights and the anchor light? Most times the side lights and anchor light are on separate circuits/switches. If on separate circuits/switches and both are out, then most likely the switches are OK but may be worth checking. Check the earth on your bus bar make sure it's clea

  15. @JonD There were reports of 3m whites and tigers in close to the beaches last week and also inside the Port over on the Tea Gardens side. But, yes, around Easter when the mullet are running is when you’ll see plenty of them.

  16. I am not familiar with this knot but I would imagine that the braid actually "bites into" the mono under increasing tension, similar to how the FG knot works. What do you think? Cheers, bn

  17. Every wrap of the braid I see done under tension, which equates to around 40 tight wraps when I do mine. I have had the mono slip when using Berkeley fireline, which is very smooth but apart from that I've yet to ever have a problem.

  19. Went to sydney harbour today for some kings and we did ok. We started the day of fishing for squid and got one and the fishing was slow. About 1hr later it started pissing down rain but suprisingly we got three squid in the matter of 30min at manly, we also tried for yakkas on a sabiki rig and didnt catch anything. It was still pouring so we left and got out of the rain(kinda). After that we went camp cove and caught three more live squid in the matter of 3mins . We caught 7 live squid at this point and we still had about 6 to 8 dead squid so we had plenty of bait and we headed to north head a

  20. Hi Raiders This music video turned up on my YouTube feed a bit randomly. I like sixties and seventies rock.... Someone has combined a scene from the 1969 movie Sweet Charity with Ike and Tina's Nutbush from 1973. You can see elements of Austen Powers, Michael Jackson and even Robert Palmer. Lets get things straight, I can't dance and I'm not into musicals, but this is pretty cool. Enjoy
