  1. Headed up from Lilli Pilli early this morning to the deeper water. Caught the fish (except for the smaller flattie and whiting) on squid and salted yakka strips. Plenty of small reddies pinching the baits, only one just made size. Also pulled out a just under tailor, and dropped 2 bigger tailor that spat the hooks. I pulled out a jewie that was about 60 cm, and he was returned after a good fight. I had one good run that I suspected was an eagle ray, and it was. About 2 feet across the wings, not a big one but still swimming like a rocket on a hand line. I pulled him up to the boat, flippe

  2. Had a cracking afternoon kayak session on Friday after an early launch on the lower Georges. Collected only a few poddies in the morning and trolled them around on the run in for a while heading upstream to a better bait spot. Loaded up a bag limit of nice sized poddies on the top of the tide and started fishing the flats for not much action. I waited for the tide to gather some momentum about two hours after high and fished the deeper water. First fish was a fiesty flatty around 65-70cm that slipped out of the lip grips and jumped out of the net with a spectacular vertical leap. I was t

  4. I was recently asked if I could make a rear step for a aluminium boat, so I have come up with a few designs to suit different size boats, small med and large . They would have grab handles made to suit boat. I have fitted one to my own 14 foot Brooker ( just a prototype ) but will do the job I am looking for just bolted on. After talkback from those who have them ? and more importantly Who uses them ?. They come as standard on many boats but most are not used. Here is mine. I have made them all with angled backs to suit angle of my transom so step is straig

  5. G’day raiders, Where do I start???? Ok, so Monday. Woodsy and I were going to head out so I went and checked the weather. Conditions were forecast fishable but I looked at the ocean and it wasn’t right, so we canned it. Made plans to look at Friday! I had another mate and raider @tyrone07 keen as well. So we plan to get out today but Tyrone decides to bring up his boat with a mate and thought we could have a little Comp to keep us focused. The only problem is he only made it half way due to a collapsed wheel bearing! Poor bastard! 😫 Well that’s not stopping me and woodsy f

  6. Fished the sand flats in the macleay yesterdays afterwards for me I did really well on whiting. Nothing compared to the snapper at Port Stephens. Fished from the shore as only a short trip and couldn't be bothered launching the boat.. Fished unweighted nippers on 1 and 2 kg outfits for about 3hrs near the bottom of the tide. Never caught so many whiting over 35cm in a single outing. . Going to give them another try tomorrow

  7. The eagle rays certainly go hard. Nearly got spooled by a big one last month. Just hung on and the line busted at the swivel, so only lost the hooks and swivel. Eagle rays swim into shallow water at night and suck the nippers out of the sand. You can see where they have been, depressions in the sand about 2 feet across. To the inexperienced, it looks like someone has been using a nipper pump to try to dig to the centre of the earth. If you have to chase a flattie, it will be a world record fish.

  13. Hey salty creek, I have an image of you as a youngster on a bike going to spots and discovering the world of fishing. Regardless of your age, you're in for an amazing time coz the Fishraider community here are a great bunch of people who share Intel and can help you catch that fish you're chasing. I have seen some people catch Jew to maybe 70cm on very light line but they were in a boat and the hook was in the mouth holding onto almost nothing. They could chase the fish and keep enough pressure on to prevent the hook falling out. There's no way you could set the hook on a Jew with such light

  15. Where are you busting off? At a knot? What strength leader are using? If it’s flathead, are you sure they’re not just sawing through the leader above the hook? If so, keep their head down below the surface and bring the net up from underneath... use a big net... less chance of them sawing through the leader.
