  2. would advise against using a paternoster with 6lb line, as well as using it with a sliding sinker throw the sinker on the end of the paternoster or single hook if you want to run sliding sinker have had troubles in the past trying to tie paternoster on anything under 10lb

  4. Yesterday, me and a mate decided to go for a fish around Sydney Harbour. We set out on the bus at around 10:15am and arriving in the city at 10:50am. We walked for about 20 minutes before settling down at the wharf next to the Opera House (Man'O'War Steps). We were there for about 2 hours but all we caught were a couple of leather jackets and a pigmy snapper. We then decided to walk along the stone wall and fish along the sides there as it looked promising as it was shallow and had a sandy bottom, so I thought it would be good for flathead. Me and my mate then continued working our way along t

  6. I have a Bright Red / Orange flag which sits on my outboard propeller as when tilted up it falls into the above category, so it was provided by the dealer to meet regulations.

  8. Hey mate. Its always exciting taking the kids fishing. The boys have provided some really good info. Just to add, sydney harbour night fishing can be very productive. The species i have caught at night include bream, tailor, jewfish, whiting and trevally. I suggest you throw out an assortment of rigs to maximise your chances. Id have a few rods on a running ball sinker and id also have a rod or two out on a float which will be good for tailor and trevally. Burley in th harbour can make all the difference bringing the fish to your location as well as getting them into the mood to bite

  9. Done the night fishing fair bit with the kids its a big deal to them a real adventure. The pre made rigs and cut baits great idea. Float fishing unless you add a glow stick sort of defeats the object of a float being a visual aid but if it saves constant snagging it is an option. As Noelm said bream will be the big go we have most success with them, Tailor as well. Not much of a squid fisherman so not my area. The kids will love head torches but in my opinion a lantern is a must as well to light the general area for safety also pick a safe level area with minimum trip hazards make sure no hook

  10. Spot on Kingie chaser, the only real rule with kingfish is “if you don’t have a line in the water - you don’t have a chance”. Interestingly, one day last summer, I couldn’t elicit a response with live squid, cuttlefish, slimies, garfish or Yakkas, all they wanted or would bite on that day were prawns - and cooked ones at that.

  12. Can you slide the winch post forward to allow the boat to go further on the skid.

  13. Trailer appears to be too short to me with too much weight not being supported at rear. There is also the issue of whether there is the correct weight over the towball as this can cause excessive bounce when towing which can affect controll of rig and breaking probs. Just a thought. How long is the draw bar, is there any chance youu can move the winch post forward bringing boat further onto the trailer. This may mean you need to move axle as well to adjust drawbar weight. First thing would be to contact trailer manufacturer ang find out max it was built for. Dealers selling rigs with unsu

  14. Lots of FG boats are on skids... and many folks are changing from rollers to skids 'coz of the lower maintenance. Just focus on correct support for now... and then on ease of riding on /off trailer. Cheers Zoran

  15. Personally I would not fish there. Because the Botanical gardens have both historical significance and appeal for both tourist and Locals. I am a fisherman, plenty places to fish not in the gardens.

  16. Most of us don't utilise our sounders to the full potential and it can be hard remembering how to adjust something you might only use once a week for a weekend fish. It can also be hard to operate menus while on a rocking boat while you would rather simply be fishing, so with that in mind it may well be worth heading to YouTube and checking out some of the Garmin webinars . Even old hands might find new tricks hidden within their sounders by having a refresh on YouTube.

  17. Hey guys, first post here so go easy on me Headed down to south avoca to fish the turn of the tide after hearing of pelagics in the area, it was pretty quiet all day until about an hour and a half after low tide. One guy snagged a nice 50-60cm piece so i decided to start throwing my x rap about 20 metres down from him. After 10 or so casts my rod keels over and a huge salmon starts pulling, thought it was a king after some bright yellow flashes but soon realised it was a salmon after some small jumps. Good fight on 12lb line and my first salmon on spin! Ended up going 67cm but didnt land

  18. PM: With the weather looking alright for a fish Saturday morning before the wind was meant to come up around lunch, and it been way too long since I’ve soaked some baits for a jewie, I decided why not do it all! We launched from Gosford wharf at 8:00pm with a mate that fished with me frequently, the bacon & eggs and sleeping bags loaded. The plan was to fish the low tide in the Hawkesbury, snapper at sunrise, and a flattie drift just before the wind hit. We were in a rush to try make the end of the low tide change but had a quick crack at trying to get some fresh squid in Paddy’s chan

  19. G'day Raiders, Just wanted to let you know why you should always be wearing your sunnies outdoors, even if the sun doesn't bother you. If you're not bothered by the sun, it is still damaging your eyes. Conditions such as pterygium, cataract and macula degeneration are all in part made worse by the sun. The later two are caused by long term sun exposure, so the effect won't show until you're older. As an optometrist I see these conditions every day. Wearing sunnies doesn't mean you won't ever get them, but research shows there's less chance and it won't be as severe Ano

  20. There is a plenty of kingfish and jewfish as well as XL snapper to be caught at the Parramatta Ferry Wharf. As far west up the river as you possibly can go. You can also catch squid and yellowtail there for bait. Goodluck 😊😊
