  2. Hi All, I've learnt a lot from this forum over the years so thought I'd share a few tips on what's been working for me when targeting Sydney Harbour bream on topwater lures. It's an extremely addictive and accessible way to fish if you live in the city. Once you've cracked the code you'll be hesitant to throw much else for bream when targeting them with lures. Most of my experience is based on my local waterway which is Blackwattle Bay / Rozelle Bay. I also have no boat or kayak so fish exclusively from the shore. The same bream rules apply for where to find them - look for

  3. Thanks for reading everyone. Got this one yesterday - Was the biggest of three that I caught before I basically melted. Middle of the day, stinking hot, people everywhere and this one still couldn't resist. They're not a shy species as far as I'm concerned. Hope everyone gets onto one soon!

  4. Trust your brother's okay mate and I think you're right, no news is good news. I guess with no power down that way for some time there's no landline or mobile coverage. My brother was evacuated almost a week ago and I hadn't heard from him until I received an email this morning.

  5. It was pretty cool here, NE wind almost all day, straight off the ocean, but when that southerly hit last night, we had burnt leaves and thick ash covering everything, could barely go outside because of the rubbish getting in your eyes, can't imagine how bad it is right at the front! Still no news from my brother at Fisherman's Paradise, but, I guess in a way, that's a good thing.

  6. Mate your a champion. This is what makes fishraider so awesome. Thank you very much for your advice. I don't get to see many bream here in Tamworth but when the fires finally finish I might treat myself to a holiday chasing bream somewhere. Thanks again Cheers Scotty

  7. Sloppy swell and strong winds have made the harbour uncomfortable for the past week. Added to this has been a heap of traffic and very full car parks at all the ramps. Never the less, Friday provided a window to get out for a quick fish with my nephew and his son for a few hours, I wasn’t too confident of getting kings, but there have been heaps of salmon and mackerel schools from the Bridge to middle harbour, so I thought we’d have some fun casting on light gear. They’ve been feeding on small white bait so “matching the hatch” with 10gm metals and 3” (white) plastics has been their downfall

  8. Hi Everyone, Just wanted to share a story of my fishing trip in Parsley Bay yesterday. I was there between 6am to 6pm, hoping to beat my previous (unimpressive) record. It was crowded and I am not just talking about the people on the wharf. There were Mackerels booming everywhere and not a single soul left the wharf without a fish in the morning. And yes, I beat my record with a new species (the mackerel) at 33cm (see? unimpressive record). In previous trips, I would bring my earphones and listen to my music, only taking it off when someone calls to me. However, yesterday I

  11. Good write up Niall, I'm sure quite a few fishos will get a lot out of this. If I may add, another good lure to have in your kit is a Lucky Craft Sammy 65. At 5.8 grams they cast like a bullet and will help where distance is needed or a strong cross wind is hurting the accuracy of lighter lures, but I agree, those Sugarpens are hard to beat. I also find a bit of chop on the water really helps turn timid fish into biters as well.

  17. Yesterday with low winds forecast I headed out in the yak where Georges River meets Botany Bay for an arvo mission. Took a mate in tow as he wanted to try some fishing techniques from his new paddle kayak. Collected some poddies on the last of the run in and headed up river with two baits down. My sounder was out of power but my mate kept me informed with the flash hatch-mounted sounder on his new Stealth Pro Fisha. The call came of soft bait balls and arches came as I hooked up on my trailing lure with a nice flatty in the low 60s coming in. As I was retrieving the lure, the biggest live

  23. G’day raiders, Just a quick report from up here. Headed out today with fellow raider @Flanno. Filled up with livies pretty quick. Hit the island and with wind against swell, against current made drifting difficult. But after a few change in locations and plastics, I managed to find one beast going 80cm that gave a good account of itself. Had to move a few more times to find Flanno his first legal snapper on sps and a cracker too going 74cm. It was a good day out there, thanks Flanno. I’m sure I’ve created another addicted member lol 😝 Merry Xmas to all raiders!!!
