  1. Sharks and jewies will be on the prowl. ANZAC day has traditionally been the start of the run. Good time to be fishing of the beach with a butterflyed mullet. Cheers Scotty
  2. Hello fellow fishraider The picture is of a Jew I caught in Cowan creek on 6lb line,size 2 hook and a mullet fillet . It fought tooth and nails the whole fight, many heart stopping moments as there were jetskers and people in boats pulling up watching. There was about 5 trys at netting it, each time it would turn and run. Eventually we netted it, it went 73cm,chucked a tag in it and after a short swim of it went . It's my best capture cause I was fishing for bream and was totally out gunned but I won the fight. But to see it swim off with a tag in its shoulder made me feel happy knowing someone else could come across this fish and hopefully enjoy what I had experienced. Cheers Scotty
  3. Wow Wazza when is the book coming out. Keep the stories coming mate. I don't know about other fishraiders but stuff like this is keeping me going in these crapy times. Really appreciate the time you take to let us know about all your adventures and all the information you have posted over the years. Thanks again Wazza. πŸ‘πŸ» Cheers Scotty
  4. Hey Wazza In the summer of 1999/2000 I caught a spotted mackerel of the rocks south of forster, a 40 cm big eye trevally at bobbin head, and my mate caught a 1.2 metre cobia at the mouth of Smith's creek. This also coincided with a massive inshore run of small black marlin down the east coast. I reckon a few people on this site will remember it. I think every 5 years or so we have a run of tropical species that go for a holiday to southern waters. Correct me if I'm wrong but a school of longtail tuna ended up in a lake near narooma a few years back. I hope other fishraider have some stories too. Cheers Scotty
  5. Hey Nathan, the creek goes for a few kms,have a look on Google maps. There are few sand flats to negotiate but quite a few deep holes and rock bars. Best bait are nippers,poddy mullet or fresh hawksbury prawns. Z man grubs work well,and I bet a popper or sugerpen will work well on the wihting as well. It's a nice peaceful place to explore. Cheers Scotty
  6. Hi Nathan If you go over the sand flats behind the marina at high tide ,you can paddle all the way up the creek all the way to Turramurra and drift back down on the run out. Plenty of fish up there,monster wihting, perch, flatties even bull sharks. Let us know how you go. Cheers Scotty
  7. Way to go mate, on a threadline to 🀘. Fist pump through the internet to you. Sounds like you had a first class captain as well. Cheers Scotty
  8. Keep using the lure,don't repaint it ,the more messed up it looks the more it looks like a wounded baitfish. I remember fishing on a charter out of nossa a few years back for Spanish mackerel and the rapalas that had been used over and over scored more hits than the new ones. Just a bit of advice mate see how you go. Nice session though considering the water quality. Cheers Scotty
  9. 60mm overnight in Tamworth, all the creeks flowing again, some for first time in 5years,looks like more to come during the week. Cheers Scotty
  10. 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
  11. Hey mate. There are a lot of mud and sand flats up there but with some decent holes as well,all the way up past crosslands reserve . Probably a high tide only area in a small tinny. It's good for kayaking. I spent a lot of my younger days on that creek fishing. There was always bream,fatties and the occasional bull shark as well. It would fish real well right up the back past the reserve in times of drought as the salt pushed up over rock bar at high tide. It's a fun place to explore with very little fishing pressure considering it's still in suburban Sydney. I hope this helps mate. Cheers Scotty P/s between you,me and the gum trees there was a healthy supply of bass up there that would always turn it on on a steamy Sydney afternoon.
  12. Yeah Rick they all need it badly . What's left in all the holes are starting to turn septic. Looks like rain over the fires east of Walcha and nowendoc.
  13. No rain in Tamworth again Rick, the storms seem to split in two when they get about 20 km from town. Manila to the north had 10mm .
  14. Double rainbow through the smoke haze in Tamworth today. Haven't seen one for a while, maybe it's a sign. Cheers Scotty
